Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. We live in such a diet-saturated culture, that we don’t even see disordered thoughts when they are literally in in huge black print in front of us. What is so disheartening is how often I’ve seen it on Instagram. Big bloggers aren’t just people with a diy
They talk about leaky gut as though it is a diagnosis. Healthcare professionals refer to this as intestinal permeability. Far from being a diagnosis, it is a symptom.

Many of my patients complained that dietitians went backwards and forwards on themselves. Fat is bad! Fat is great! Carbs are bad! Fruit is bad!

What can you eat today that will use up your leftovers without completely repeating the flavors? If you are thinking, “Perhaps a Vietnamese Chicken Salad?” then you beat me to the punch.
THE BACKGROUND Padma, my stepmom, is the kindest woman I know. I don’t mean that in a flippant superlative that simply means, she’s really, really kind. She is LITERALLY the kindest woman I know. She and my mom were close friends. When I was a kid, I thought it was cool, but a little weird
These bring figs, tahini, and almonds into a calcium packed delight. I made them for the London trip this last week. In the UK, we don’t have Lara Bars, so I thought I was going to make a poor man’s Lara bar. I was pleasantly surprised at how these turned out on the first
