Spaghetti and Meatballs

I haven’t eaten spaghetti and meatballs for years. It was a staple when I was growing up, but I’ve only had it a handful of times since becoming an adult. First I was a vegetarian for a few years. Then I started eating more meat, but cut back on grains. Then I started the Blood […]

Experiencia personal

Les participo que me adhiero a los lineamientos del Dr. D’Adamo en un 100%. Llevo casi 17 años practicando el estilo de vida de BTD\GTD, y esto me permite tomar a diario decisiones en torno a mis alimentos de manera natural y sencilla. Considero esta ‘dieta’ (SWAMI) no como una tendencia que esta de moda, […]

Busy Day

Overall, I’ve been doing a good job of avoiding the “avoids.” I have some nut bars that I keep in my purse that are mostly compliant, but not 100%. They do contain sugar, honey, sunflower seeds, and cashews, along with almonds, chocolate, and other things that are fine for me. Somehow they’re more satisfying than […]

More cheese struggles

I’m still struggling with the cheese issue. I thought I’d solved it on the first night of Shavuos, when I’d had fish, rice pasta, and vegetables, plus a tiny sliver of cheesecake, and about a teaspoonful of the cream sauce I’d made for Jack. I got this sudden feeling of “ugh! no more dairy!” and […]

Adventures in Free Food

I’ve been acquiring free food in a variety of ways. A couple of years ago, I blogged about Food Not Bombs, which has since been renamed “Community Solidarity.” Most of the food they distribute is donated from Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s- things like dented boxes of cereal, slightly over-ripe produce, and dairy products close […]

Shabbos Cooking For One

Leah and Hannah have moved out, and Jack is away for Shabbos, so this leaves me free to cook what I want for Shabbos, without having to take anybody else’s dietary restrictions or food preferences into account. Before Hannah moved out, she often went away for Shabbos, but I still wasn’t free of cooking for […]

Se Repite La Historia!

Una vez más, reconocimiento a BTD por la comunidad medica Una noticia relevante y actual en relación a mi columna de la semana pasada titulada: Como zumbido de moscas (sobre la controversia de incluir cierto tipo de grasa a la dieta diaria, coadyuvando a la prevención de enfermedades cardiovasculares). Sobre el tema, la publicación este […]

Cooking for Two

Hannah just moved out about a week ago, and I’m developing new routines in the kitchen. There are some foods that Hannah enjoys eating that I don’t care for, or that contain ingredient I shouldn’t eat. Already I’m noticing that the fridge is less cluttered, without the “Hannah foods” that Jack and I are unlikely […]
