On Being Mindful

I know I said I’d relegate comments about my Total Health program to a coda each week, but last night’s class spurred such a barrage of ideas that I wanted to set them down (despite last week’s blathering about eating styles–we all know how well that one went over). So be warned: this entry features […]

Driven by Distraction

I wouldn’t have believed it myself if it hadn’t happened to me personally (why, yes, you’re absolutely right, that does sound like the opening line of a letter to Penthouse Forum! But sorry, it’s not).

Two whole days, and I have consumed not one single sweet. No cookies. No cake. No muffins, even. But best […]

Dogged Determination to Get It Right

There’s nothing better than celebrating a special holiday with balance. A bounty of food and alcohol may abound, but the best approach is to simply eat well, eat with a level head, and enjoy the abundance without going overboard. Wake up the next day feeling great, ready to take on the day as if the […]

Fluffy Fruited Pancakes

We do this a lot, it seems. For me, the allure is the meal itself; breakfast foods have […]

On my first day at nutrition school our lecturer was a petite woman resembling Natalie Portman: a teeny, tiny brunette with a regal air about her. As she expounded on macrobiotic diets and food combining and fat metabolism, I couldn’t help but think, “All these nutritionists here who are, like, a size two and never […]

Intuition and Chocolate Brownies

Well, I’ve got it bad.

It’s exam time at the college, and there are something like 204 papers to be marked by the end of the week.

Yet, as I sit here at my desk, wind vaulting stray flakes of snow across my window, what do I do? Do I even glance in the direction […]

Tea Biscuits at the Ready

With no stove and no way of cooking anything, I’m grateful for the few baked goods left in the freezer. These are tea biscuits I created while experimenting with vegan and sugar-free biscuits and scones.

These are light and surprisingly tasty, considering that they have no butter, eggs, or refined sugar. They’re […]

Rule #1: When and How Much Do I Eat?

Have you ever woken up in the morning, still feeling full from the previous night? I have to admit it’s happened to me more than I care to remember. Of course, all that’s over for me now, right? Hmm. Not right.

I really thought yesterday was a near-perfect day in terms of meals and portion […]
