Fluffy Sweet Potato and Pear Pancakes

It’s no secret that my favorite meal of the day is breakfast. Breakfast early, breakfast late, breakfast for brunch, breakfast on the road, breakfast for dinner–I don’t care; I love them all. And of all the beloved breakfast foods, my favorite is pancakes. Pancakes early, pancakes late, pancakes for brunch–well, you get the idea.  In […]

My Way of Eating*

On Being Mindful

I know I said I’d relegate comments about my Total Health program to a coda each week, but last night’s class spurred such a barrage of ideas that I wanted to set them down (despite last week’s blathering about eating styles–we all know how well that one went over).

As she expounded on macrobiotic diets and food combining and fat metabolism, I couldn’t help but think, “All these nutritionists here who are, like, a size two and never […]

Intuition and Chocolate Brownies

Well, I’ve got it bad. It’s exam time at the college, and there are something like 204 papers to be marked by the end of the week. Yet, as I sit here at my desk, wind vaulting stray flakes of snow across my window, what do I do? Do I even glance in the direction […]

Tea Biscuits at the Ready

With no stove and no way of cooking anything, I’m grateful for the few baked goods left in the freezer.  These are tea biscuits I created while experimenting with vegan and sugar-free biscuits and scones. These are light and surprisingly tasty, considering that they have no butter, eggs, or refined sugar.  They’re made with spelt […]
