Here’s a great low fat, high-protein, high-fiber alternative to garlic mashed potatoes! White beans are also rich in iron, magnesium, B vitamins, and zinc. Watch out for sodium though–canned beans can have a surprising amount, so make sure you get a variety of bean with no salt added (like Eden Organic). This recipe is great […]

It’s always interesting to me to learn about other cultures’ food traditions, especially around relatively universal holidays like New Years. For many Japanese, soba noodles have become a New Years Eve tradition, because they’re symbolic of longevity. And they’re not just a symbol for longevity—they’re rich in protein and fiber, they’re one of the few […]

Roasted Rainbow Carrots and Parsnips with Shallots 1½ lbs rainbow carrots 1 ½ lbs parsnips 8 shallots, […]
When it comes to vegetable dishes, vegans know what’s up. Sometimes vegetarians get a little lazy and add favor to veggie dishes by covering everything with cheese, but vegans don’t have that luxury (I know—I used to be one). A lot of vegan chefs have come up with some pretty incredible, totally healthy flavors, relying […]
Have I mentioned that I love roasted squash? Oh my gosh, do I ever. I also recently discovered pumpkin curry at a restaurant near my office in San Francisco, and now Kabocha pumpkins are probably one of my favorite things to eat. This recipe is great with a single type of squash, or a couple […]
Winter is coming, which means grapefruit and other citrus is in season. (Woohoo!) I love grapefruit. I’ll peel off the pithy white stuff and eat it like a lot of people eat oranges. But I realize that not everybody is into it, which is unfortunate, Grapefruit offers a lot of great health benefits like lowered […]
Plain ol’ Thanksgiving mashed potatoes? Nah. Idaho Russets with heavy cream, while a popular classic, are not exactly a healthy option for a Thanksgiving side dish. Yukon Gold potatoes have a lot more flavor than Idaho Russets, and since their texture is much creamier naturally, they don’t require a lot of heavy cream to make […]
