Meatless Monday Recipe: Poblano and Portobello Fajitas
Another happy Meatless Monday! Today I wanted to share a fresh, savory and interactive meal the entire family will love: Poblano Pepper and Portobello Mushroom Fajitas. These simple and vibrant fajitas will be on the table in minutes and provide your family with a nutritious, customizable, and fun evening together without spending too much time in the kitchen prepping or cleaning afterwards. These fajitas can be made spicy (by including the jalapeño and poblano peppers) or mild by leaving them out. Try incorporating sautéed corn and different colored bell peppers as well as experimenting with the various varieties of mus...

Make Celeb Chef Ingrid Hoffmann's Roasted Tomato Sopa When Temps Drop
Nothing beats a hot bowl of soup on a cold day -- and we're big fans of tomato soup, which packs a hefty dose of lycopene, a promising antioxidant. However, many tomato soup recipes use loads of butter and cream to give them a creamy texture (which we will say goes great with a grilled cheese sandwich). However, in this recipe from celeb chef Ingrid Hoffmann's latest book, Latin D'Lite: Delicious Latin Recipes with a Healthy Twist, she takes the classic soup to a tastier, healthier next level by using roasted tomatoes, onions and cumin for flavor; Hoffman mimics a creamy texture by garnishing it with protein-rich nonfat pl...

Fall for Chili: Easy Chickpea, Bean & Turkey Chili with Veggies
I love when the cooler weather hits and its time for jeans, sweaters, and warm comfort food. Chili has to be the ultimate in comfort foods. I love that you can’t mess it up. Just about any combination of veggies, beans, and lean protein will work. You can season it from sweet with maple syrup and molasses to spicy with jalapeno and poblano peppers to smoky with chipotle in adobo. The one I’m giving you today takes advantage of canned beans, corn, and tomatoes along with fresh carrots, celery and onion. Meat lovers will get their “fix” from some ground lean turkey in the dish, but this would do fine ...

Can Beta Cells Be Healed?
By David Spero Can Type 2 or Type 1 diabetes be not only reversed, but cured? Can beta cells start producing enough insulin? Can the liver store glucose better, and can body cells learn to handle glucose more efficiently? We always hear that diabetes is incurable, and so far it has been. But people are trying. Diabetes affects so many organs; we’ll have to investigate them one at a time. This week we’ll look at beta cells in the pancreas. If you have Type 1 or 2 diabetes or prediabetes, you have damaged beta cells. So you don’t have enough insulin, and what you have may not be released when it’s n...

Cozy Up to this Healthy Vegetable Chili Recipe
I originally found this recipe in Food and Wine magazine. I tried it out with my friend and marathon running buddy Rolando. He’s the kind of guy who buys stuff from the store and “pretends” he made it. I really don’t care because he is an amazing host and friend — and he always provides enough wine! I can also say as a new mom, dinner is harder than ever to get on the table (y’all with me). This is an easy recipe that lasts and freezes well. It’s also versatile. You can change the toppings, wrap it in a tortilla with some spinach, or even add a little to a couple eggs for a savory ...

In the two days I've had off since the holidays. . .
. . .I've gotten into an Ancient Cookbook Frenzy.One thing I can say for people in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries: they had one hell of a collective sweet tooth. Make a pie of artichoke bottoms? Strew it with sugar before you serve it to table. Boil a calve's chaldron (which I just found out is entrails) and spice it with mace and nutmeg and cinnamon? Sprinkle a little sugar over that mofo before you serve it up in a pasty. Roast a rooster? Sugar. Making a nice (meaning exacting) recipe for biskit? Sugar. Sheep's feet? Sugar.When a recipe starts with "Take a pound of sugar, seirced, and lay it onto four pounds of ...
