I eat a pretty varied diet. Lots of fruits and vegetables (the types depend on the season), different cooked grains, a variety of lentils and beans, among many other things. But there are some foods I eat all the time. These are my staples. My favorites. My go-to’s when I’m not feeling creative. The things…Continue Reading
Nothing satisfies quite like a big bowl of chili when it’s chilly (sorry). This vegetarian version is quick, healthy and adaptable so you can incorporate whatever veggies you have on hand.

Here are a few of the meals…Continue Reading
I try to make Lucy’s school lunches interesting, colorful and different from week to week. Though she’d sometimes prefer to get the same thing everyday (as long as it was bread & cheese), I feel it’s important to offer her a variety of foods so she can continue learning about different flavors and textures – and so…Continue Reading

While I’m all for occasional indulgence, eating a nibble here and a nibble there can add up to unwanted extra pounds pretty fast.
