Cookie exchanges are fun social occasions but let's resolve to make cookies healthier next year. They don't need to be 7 layer high fat, high sugar indulgences that contribute to many chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular damage and dementia. Yes, high sugar is now identified as a major contributor to dementia and even has its own classification called Type 3 diabetes.

Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts
Thanksgiving dinner is one of the culinary highlights of the year. Family and friends join together to share a blessed moment when they give thanks for each other and for homes, jobs, and the opportunity to live comfortable lives.

Preparing a great gluten-free Thanksgiving is a easy as 1-2-3-4! First, and foremost, make sure your turkey of choice is gluten-free. Not all brands of turkey are gluten-free.

The one condition that accounts for almost half of the patients who seek out gastroenterologists is IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Many celiacs suffer from this ailment. IBS is a ‘functional’ disorder, meaning that there is no damage to the digestive tract. Only the bowel’s function, not its structure, is disturbed.

You get a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach as you acknowledge that you will have to actually cook most of your own meals at home!
The traditional food pyramid of the past shows breads, pasta, rice, cereals (all high in carbohydrates) at the base of the pyramid, the ‘staple’ of the diet. Recently, this assumption has come under attack. Experts are telling us that a diet high in carbohydrates is bad for us (Why is it that the things we love to eat are bad for us?).
