Perfecting my on-line grocery shopping skills!

I know- Pfizer+Moderna+Astra-zenica+ more labs are on it- soon everybody will be happily hugging sweaty people they barely know, and everything will be back to normal. But- Us introverts, have believed in social distancing since the stone age, certainly before Covid began, so we needn’t change our non social habits just because vaccinations are in …

Time to pair up!

I have enough (too much?) time to wonder why pears don’t enjoy the great PR apples do. Oh wait- before I start persuading you to occasionally switch between the 2, need I remind anyone that I am under no circumstances a registered dietitian or anything of the sort? Pears are in season now , as …

Yummy healthy post workout breakfast!!

Autumn is here, finally. Love this short, sweet season. I guess everybody does, I mean what’s not to like about fair weather, falling leaves, the promise of a cozy winter (things always look better when expecting them- also see- trips abroad: a dream before- many times a disaster during, a dream in retrospect. that’s the …

Apple-sauce instead of what??

Apples are a favorite of mine. I absolutely think fruit are nature’s fancy cakes, and I am risking being labeled as a douch/purist/hippie/all 3 together-and I don’t give a f%^&. Because- I am a true skeptic, and almost everything in life-in my opinion , is to be seriously doubted and double, if not triple-checked before …

Now’s the time to appreciate leftovers!

I actually believe it is always a good time to appreciate leftovers, but even if you are not as strict , you probably got the message from the past 3 months.. Learning to use what you have lying around is an essential skill for times when supermarkets are raided, stores are barely open and I …

Who’s afraid of baking bread?

So, I began to make a list of the things I love doing. The simplest method I use to decide whether I like doing something is the “time flies” (AKA -“I’m in the zone”) test. In my opinion, anything you do and get so immersed in that you lose track of time is something you …

Getting through quarantine.

#1:getting creative in the kitchen. Ok- This is a lettuce wrap (!) with a beet-tahini spread .I had some leftover baked beets that were surprisingly not in demand (simply wash and bake the beets, halfway through you can take them out and peel them, (they peel so easily once baked ), put back in the …

If you don’t have bread, why not have (rice) cakes? (M.Antoinett)

Until a few weeks ago, I never ate rice cakes. They were considered “bad diet food” in my personal food terminology. I do hope you remember I am no RD or Dr or any other (non) possible combinations of these 2 letters.early retired health enthusiast.as I always say- use your brain, it was put there …

Beet it!

This winter vegetable is a true wonder. Full of nutrients, easy on the calories, naturally sweet, and that color, psychedelic. The thing is, at least in our house, beets are one of those veggies that we all know that are great for us, but many ( many) times, we (ok.I) just get too lazy to …
