There are lots of questions about pre and post workout nutrition, so I spent some time talking about it with Dr. Wu. Click on the title for the full article and video.
Well we are now 7 days into the New Year, so how are your "resolutions" holding up? We often paint "resolutions" as black and white changes - I will exercise x number of times a week; I won't eat any dairy for 2016. Because of this it can be very easy to throw a "resolution" out the window when life gets in the way and derails us. Does this suddenly mean that our "resolution" is busted? Should we just say f*ck it and sit on the coach eating a tub of ice cream?

Instagram is probably my favorite social media platform and this dish was inspired by an image I saw there. It is super simple, has very few ingredients and can be whipped up without much work. It’s also crazy packed with nutrients.
In the past I have been intimidated by making scallops at home. I didn’t want to undercook them, but it’s also supposedly so easy to overcook them; I just didn’t even bother. But in making a concerted effort to eat a wider variety of things, I had to get over my scallop cooking fears! And I must admit I'm really in love with how this recipe turned out.
Hello Spring! A new season means new fruits and veggies to play with. This recipe is a great way to celebrate spring and eat one of my favorite spring veggies: asparagus! I’ve always loved the way asparagus comes apart when you bite into them along their length. They have such an interesting texture, woody yet juicy. They taste fresh and like earth.
You see the title of this recipe? That’s it. Well, you do need some fat and water. And maybe a little salt. But that’s really it. This is a super-duper simple recipe with tons of flavor.
This time of year I’m always stocked with sweet potatoes. They keep really well, can be used in many different ways, are extremely filling and can add a nice sweetness. Plus they are in season right now, which is even better. I will also admit that the nerdy archaeologist in me loves the stratigraphic layers that this casserole creates.
This is one of my absolute favorite dishes for when I’m feeling rather lazy in my cooking. It does not require many ingredients and can be infinitely modified.
