Potato Bruschetta

Well,  you know what they say. . . the best laid plans sometimes go AWOL (or something like that).  In my case, plans for the Labor Day weekend–well, Sunday, actually–were waylaid by an impromptu visit. . . to the emergency room. No, not for me.  The HH, however, is still recovering (and he’ll be fine, […]

The Nerd Makes Good: A Double Ode to Okra*

* Or, Give Pods a Chance! [Okra pods, in the raw] I have a confession to make.  I haven’t told you all about this yet because, quite frankly, I was afraid you’d reject me.  Move that cursor elsewhere, and click.  At best, roll your eyes.  Maybe snort in disgust.  Maybe gag, even. But I’ve decided it’s […]

A Fresh Start. . . and 2008’s Last (Food-Related) Hurrah

[Potato-Kale Curry] First, and most importantly: Happy 2009, everyone!  Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments and good wishes for the new year.  I can’t even begin to express how much I appreciate them all and how much blogging has brought into my life.  But by far, the best part is you–readers and other […]

It’s vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg free, soy-free, optionally nut-free, optionally yeast-free, and low glycemic. Suitable for Stage 2 and beyond on an anti-candida diet.]   It’s been a whirlwind weekend, first, with a birthday dinner (THANKS for all […]

Corn Crêpes with Quick Tomato Tracklement*

* [or Concasse, if you prefer the more conventional term. . . but I just loved the word “tracklement” ever since I read it on Lucy’s blog, and besides, “Tomato Tracklement” is just so much more alliterative.] Last weekend was our Canada Day holiday, and this year I learned an important lesson.  No, it wasn’t “Canada […]

Moroccan Spiced Tomato Soup

As promised, I’m going to supply the recipes from the cooking class I taught last week—my last ever in my home (sniff!).   Now, on to today’s NAG-friendly recipe. . . .   This recipe for Moroccan Spiced Tomato Soup was originally given to me by a former office mate, who eventually became a close friend. At the […]

Mediterranean Tofu Scramble

I have to admit, it took me a long time to warm up to tofu.  When I first revamped my diet in accordance with the NAG principles, I had never eaten tofu, let alone familiarized myself with the many varieties in which it’s available.  My naturopath touted the truism you hear so often:  “It’s basically flavorless on […]
