So many people ask Frank and I questions about our diet and what we eat on a daily basis. So I'm going to pull back the curtain and share some insights into how we really eat. Here are the most common questions we get and the inside scoop on what The Lipmans eat.
In the summer, it’s fun to get creative with fruit for dessert. Peaches are so delicious this time of the year. While they’re fantastic on their own, I recently threw them on the grill and added some fresh banana ice cream for the perfect summer treat!
Gluten is an inflammatory food that we recommend taking out of one’s diet. When we advise patients and clients to eliminate gluten, there is often quite a sadness when they realize that they can’t have their beloved comfort foods such as bread and pasta! Have no fear … gluten-free pasta is here!
The wind is howling and it’s beyond freezing cold outside. What a perfect time to make a hearty warming soup that’s easy to prepare and deliciously satisfying. Butternut squash and carrots are loaded with beta-carotene which is converted to Vitamin A and is important for eye, heart and breast health. What more could you ask for?
After my son and I got diagnosed with Celiac disease two years ago, I had to get creative in the kitchen and come up with lots of options for meals that are gluten-free. Here are some family favorites that everyone loves: Gluten-Free Pizza, Black Bean Tacos and Shrimp & Veggie Stir Fry.
A stir-fry is one of my favorite go-to dinners. It's quick and easy to make and you can change it up in infinite ways depending on what ingredients you have on hand. I like to throw in lots of vegetables and then whatever protein I have on hand: chicken, fish, grass-fed beef or cashew nuts. Last night I made a chicken stir-fry for my husband and I. I mixed up a quick sauce of ginger and peanut butter - but I could have just as well used almond or cashew butter - and the final result was quite delicious.
It's official. Summer is drenching us with sunny warmth, longer days, and lots of reasons to avoid being boxed in by walls and roofs. It also means it's grilling season—and vegan grilling is a worthwhile pursuit. Anyone can plop a piece of meat onto a grill. But vegan grilling takes finesse. Call it skill. Are you thinking: "What's so difficult about plopping a veggie burger on the grill?" Nothing. But why limit yourself to a burger?
It's substantially safer to grill fish compared with chicken or red meats, especially if you observe these three preparation and cooking caveats, in descending order of importance: Minimize cooking time (which yields the best results anyway). Before serving grilled fish, remove the skin and its fatty under layer, and any charred portions. Use Cedar or Alder Grilling Planks to protect fish from charring on the high heat of the grill. Marinate fish before grilling.
Home cooking is such an underrated tool towards a healthy lifestyle. I didn’t used to like cooking at all growing up but my growing interest in health and wellness made me realize how important cooking and connecting to my food was. Now I absolutely love cooking, experimenting with new recipes and play around with seasonal ingredients.
It’s almost Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays of the year. It’s a time to gather together with family and friends and be thankful for the abundance we have in our lives. It’s also the day that many of us forget about eating healthily and usually end up feeling stuffed and remorseful. So here are a couple of my favorite recipes that can help you stay on track and still feel like you have indulged.
There is something quite comforting about knowing that everything in the universe has its place – that things are what they are for a reason. Here are 10 very good reasons for why you should eat seasonally. I hope this inspires you to go out and visit your nearest farmers or green market or maybe even start growing some food of your own.
Connect to autumn and to nature by trying this delicious seasonal recipe... I love all the yummy squashes you can get in the fall!
