I am told there are many people out there that serve the same cholent every week, every shabbat!!  There is no regard to outside temperate and there is no interest for something different.  Is it really true?

I understand the desire for an easy to prepare meal that fills everyone up and can stay warm all of Shabbat without overheating the kitchen, but I can’t understand two things.

Whether it’s for a dish for your shabbos table or a side at a smorgasbord, potato recipes have been feeding our families for generations. Certain recipes are passed down to preserve memories and tradition, but with the addition of lots of oil or margarine, some of those dishes cast aside the importance of preserving health.

As parents, we ideally want to serve up foods that magically combine nutritious and delicious in every bite. Even for a nutritionist, that’s a challenging feat, but I’m happy to say that potatoes can have a place on your plate without a helping of guilt!

It sounds cliché but it’s true: breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

All night, our bodies are in a natural starvation mode and begin to breakdown our muscle for protein and create its own sugar. We want to take our bodies out of that mode as early as possible after we wake-up, typically within the first hour.

Superfoods is a fun term that refers to any food that is full of nutrients.  Whether they are high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber and/or polyphenols, any food that can reduce your risk of chronic diseases, help you live longer and healthier can be called a superfood.

Over the years the list of the latest and greatest superfoods continues to grow and change.  Everyone knows about spinach, tomatoes, blueberries, and salmon.  Then kale came onto the scene and it skyrocketed to the top of the list.  Every year a new food fights to take center stage, but they are all stars in my book.

When one of your childhood fantasies is to be locked in a supermarket, that pretty much determines what career path you’ll choose later in life. While my childhood friends dreamed of jetting off to the moon or becoming the next superstar singer, all I could think about was ways to surround myself with glorious food.

Fortunately my interest in food was always from a health perspective and so that aspiration of being trapped in a grocery store was all about munching on as much beautiful produce as I could get. I knew early on that the satisfying feeling of being nicely full could only come from eating whole foods. As a nutritionist and cookbook author specializing in diabetes, I’m always striving to make produce center stage for my clients and readers in a way that’s easy, tasty and of course nutritious.Couple fruits and vegetables with smart choices from the meat, seafood and dairy departments, you’ll have the makings of meal that will keep all the hunger pangs at bay.

As summertime approaches, it is great to get a head start on healthy snack options for your kids. If you think children were hungry after a long day at school, wait until they come home from a long day in a hot and active day camp, the pool or the beach.

The opportunities to eat during the summer season are endless, and seemingly so is a child’s appetite. Because they are typically more active, kids truly are hungry.
