I’m On A Boat: Cruise Healthy!

Most people are shocked when I tell them I like to go on cruises.

Can Thai Food Be Healthy?

Thai food is easily my favorite Asian cuisine. And from the number of Thai restaurants that I see, I can tell I am not alone. Thai food has gained popularity in the United States because of its flavorful, aromatic dishes that are pleasing to the western palate. Most of the dishes that are produced in […]

Peanut Butter: Pleasantly Beneficial!

Susan loved peanut butter when she was growing up. That means she loved anything with peanut butter either in it or on it. Her passion for peanut butter transcended all other foods, almost to the point of excluding anything without peanut butter.

Hummus: It Really Is That Good!

If you watched the movie “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan” featuring Adam Sandler, you noticed right away that hummus is mentioned extensively throughout the film. There is a reason for this. Israelis love to eat hummus. Although, admittedly, the movie took the use of hummus to ridiculous extremes that I wouldn’t advise. However, it […]

Brown Rice Vs. White Rice: It’s Not About the Color!

John loved Thai food. Most lunch breaks when he didn’t have to work through lunch, he’d head to the local Thai restaurant. Usually, he ordered a curry dish, which was always accompanied by white sticky rice. Today though, he didn’t get his usual waiter. So, instead of assuming he wanted white rice with the panang […]

Almonds: Not Only Tasty, But Healthy!

One of my favorite after dinner snacks to have with tea is almonds. I love the delicately flavored nut with its soft texture and light, sweet taste. If I don’t watch myself, I’m inclined to eat far more of them than I should, because I find the taste of almonds addictive. Fortunately, unlike the chips […]

Japanese Food: Healthy Option?

The Year of the Quinoa!

I will never forget the first time I was introduced to quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah” in spanish). It was Thanksgiving Day, 2004. My husband and I were in Cuzco, Peru sitting in a very small restaurant a few blocks from our hotel. As our entrees were placed on the table, we noticed a very small, round […]
