How To Make Any Food A Superfood

Have you ever wondered how our ancestors kept their food from spoiling? After all, not so long ago there was no refrigeration. There was no pasteurization. But there was fermentation. Most traditional cultures used fermentation. It’s how they preserved food and made it safe for eating. Grape juice was fermented into wine more than 8,000 […]

Are These “Health” Foods Killing Your Metabolism?

My patients often ask, “What can I eat to boost my metabolism?” It’s a good question. If you increase your metabolism even a little you’ll burn more fat.

The Mysterious Healing Fruit

They seem like the most normal fruit. You can get them year round, they’re cheap, and they’re always the same. So you buy a few, cut them up, sprinkle the juice on fish or use it in a salad dressing. Lemons are no big deal, right? Well, not so fast. Turns out, lemons have a […]

European Beauty Secret Hidden In Your Garden?

Food was a highlight of my visit to France. It was fantastic – whether at a 5-star restaurant or cooked at home. And I had a chance to try both.  But I never expected that one herb, in particular, would turn up in meal after meal. And it was delicious. From grilled lamb chops to […]

Little Sprouts, Big Health Benefits

Don’t be fooled by their small size – sprouts are packed with nutrients. For example, soybean sprouts retain the B-complex vitamins found in the original bean, but show a huge jump in Vitamins A and C over the un-sprouted seeds.

They Fooled Us All

Macaroni and cheese. Noodles and sauce. A big plate of pasta. These foods falsely satisfy our natural cravings but are low-nutrient impostors.

I’d heard that in this faraway island paradise, there’s no word for “diet.” But I was still surprised to see what my new friends in Bali, Lelir and Westi, had made us for dinner. I expected them to eat like birds, but every single dish on the table was rich, creamy or sweet. My first […]
