January 5, 20151 Comment

BPA, or bisphenal-a, is an endocrine disruptor, an estrogen-mimicking industrial chemical used in some plastic bottles and food packaging which “plays havoc with the hormones in the body’s endocrine system.” And it is everywhere.

April 18, 20132 Comments

Today I’m doing some strenuous baking.

What are Psyllium Husks?

December 15, 20122 Comments

You’ve probably started seeing this ingredient in recipes sometime in the past year. I started seeing psyllium husks and psyllium husks powder in recipes about 6 months ago.

November 8, 201213 Comments

One of the consequences of food allergies is nutrient deprivation. And one of the side affects of nutrient deprivation is binging. For years I had food allergies without realizing it. During that time I became increasingly nutrient deprived. Because I was nutrient starved, I began to binge eat. At that point, I was 13 going […]

November 1, 201210 Comments

Eating the proper kind of food is important (obvious cops!). However, what is intensely nourishing for you may not be intensely nourishing for me. But there is something that cuts across the board.

Food Allergy Survival Series: Eating Out With Food Allergies

October 26, 20124 Comments

In a way that still surprises me to this day, having food allergies means having difficult conversations about food. These conversations are difficult because, as you know, food is not just food. Food is a inextricable part of our laws of hospitality and to reject someone’s kind offer of food is simply not done. It […]
