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.

One of my favorite sayings is “It all starts out in the shopping cart”. I keep a running grocery list and organize it by categories so that when I go shopping for groceries, it makes it much easier to shop.

Here are some tips to help you with your shopping:

Everyone gets excited when lunch time comes. It’s a time to finally take a break and take the needed meal you’ve been waiting for. The advantage of packing your lunch yourself is that there won’t be any surprise: you know exactly what you will be eating and how fresh and healthy your ingredients are.

It is practically impossible to control and know what you put in your body when constantly eating out. A healthy and light lunch filled with a good amount of Superfoods will keep your brain energized all day without making you want to take a nap.

I just got back from a wonderful family early summer vacation with my Aba (father). To celebrate his 65th birthday, he took my brother and sister and I away for a week in Whistler, British Columbia without any distractions. No little ones, no spouses, just us. It was a very special time that I know we will all cherish forever. We had some serious conversations, we cried and we laughed (especially at our home videos), but most of all we enJOYed!

My Aba likes to cook and is pretty good at it too, but somehow I got drafted to guide the menu for the trip and we grilled most of the meals, a perfect way to eat amid the cool mountain air and star-filled sky. So as we approach Father’s Day, I have a few newly Aba-tested (and approved) recipes to share with you today, that you and your family will love!


 

Whole Food Recipes To Feel Fuller

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.

Cooking healthy doesn’t mean that you have to cut out carbohydrates. Eating the right food has a lot to do with your cooking method; using less artificial products and minimizing the amount of ingredients is key to creating fresh and simple meals.

You’ve heard the recommendation to make half your grains whole (and if you haven’t, it’s time to get out from under that rock!). But do you know why whole grains are so important and the variety available? If not, you’re in luck, because we’re sharing the benefits of whole grains and a delicious roundup of recipes made with grains you may have never even heard of!

In case you’re not familiar, whole grains contain 100 percent of the original kernel, including the bran, germ, and endosperm. These three parts of the grain are responsible for the nutritional benefits of whole grains.

Apple Galette Posted 06/05/2015 by thebeeskitchen
After a week in Paris, I was very excited to get back to my kitchen and try new recipes. For this dessert, I was inspired by a delicious apple turnover I had on my vacation but wanted to turn it into some sort of pie. I used puff pastry dough and made almond frangipane. Easy, simple and delicious. Specially for this warm weather, I can’t wait to have it with an iced latte!

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.

Cauliflower is an ambiguous vegetable. Many people have a love-hate relationship with it, because the taste can be strong or meld into the flavor of the dish depending on how it is cooked.

Cauliflower is very high in vitamins and is a great substitute for so many ingredients if you are vegetarian or vegan or gluten free. Whether it’s used to replace cream in a sauce or to replace the dough for a pizza or even act as a substitute for steak, cauliflower is extremely versatile. Below are 5 substitute dishes that will change the way you look at cauliflower. Don’t forget to click on the link for a list of all of our fabulous cauliflower recipes!!
