Watermelon Radish Salad

Today's lunch was inspired by a chef I met at Whole Foods yesterday. I would have never imagined these ingredients, in fact, I have never used three of them in my life. I walk by these vegetables every day not knowing what they are or how they are used. I ate mine for breakfast. Everyone agreed it was amazing. I got multiple compliments for the dressing. My youngest insisted his friend at school try it because he knew his friend would be surprised how good it tastes. I was proud to tell them I made [Read more]

Blackberry Pecan Salad

On the menu today is a Blackberry Salad with homemade Blackberry Vinaigrette. I started with a 50/50 Spring Mix/Baby Spinach lettuce and topped with fresh blackberries, thinly sliced purple onion, and honey toasted pecans.

This one, I'm very [Read more]

He Lost 200 Pounds on a Raw Food Diet

Philip McCluskey shares about the challenges he faced in the early months of his transition away from the Standard American Diet to a diet of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Besides having to buy clothes continuously as his body size rapidly changed, his family was his greatest challenge. Concerned that he was losing weight too fast, and that he was depriving himself of necessary nutrition (probably protein), family and friends tried to persuade him to eat meat. He describes how they [Read more]

A presentation by Joseph Keon, Ph.D. North Americans are some of the least healthy people on Earth today, and much of the problem stems from poor dietary choices inspired by nutritional myths.
