Summer Cooking America

UNITED STATES—Summer is upon us and the one thing I hate more than anything is crafting a dish in the kitchen. I’m certain I’m not the only person who thinks that. The kitchen is a hell hole when you tax on the summer heat and the heat generated from the oven or the stove. This is a difficult time...

Summer Kicks Off Fruit Season

UNITED STATES—I love the summer months, but I also hate the summer months. I hate summer because of the intense heat, but I love summer for the abundance of variety that comes with fruits and vegetables. The summer months kick-off the arrival of many fruits that I have come to adore. I mean peaches, apricots, nectarines, plums, Plutos, cherries,...

Junk Food Or Actual Food

UNITED STATES—Food, it is the one thing that we all consume on a daily basis. It’s something that is needed for survival; however, I really want to pinpoint the conversation about what food is being purchased. Things that should be consumed versus those food items that are not so good for the body, but we cannot resist. Let’s discuss...

Meal Prep Made Easy 101

UNITED STATES—Cooking for many of us is something we dread, for others it’s something we love, and for those in between rather you like it or not, you have to eat so get used to it. I’m someone who knows my way around a kitchen, and while not an established chef, I’m able to care for myself without relying...

Breakfast Is Indeed Important

UNITED STATES—We have all been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I would 100 percent agree with that claim. Why? It’s like the kick-off meal of the day. I am an individual who can’t function without a bit of breakfast in my body. I know for so many people this is a meal...

Water, Juice Or Soda

UNITED STATES—Something that many Americans fail to realize on a daily basis is a vast majority of the calories we consume come from actual fluids that we drink. Yeah, you might only think about food, but that glass of milk, juice, can of soda, smoothie and so many other things we drink are calorie laced at times. We all...

Red Peppers Are The Best

UNITED STATES—I love all things spicy, but even I have my limits. I love the habanero pepper, but that is probably the hottest that I will ever go. On top of that, the ghost pepper which I have always been tempted to cook with scares me to the death. With that being said, most Americans are more familiar with...

Chicken, Pork, Beef, Fish Or Some Other Protein?

UNITED STATES—We’ve talked about the various elements when it comes to the Food Pyramid in previous weeks, except perhaps the one that salivates the taste buds for most Americas: meat or what many consider protein. I will admit the thought of being a vegetarian is something that I find quite tantalizing, however, the sacrifice  to be a true vegan...

Limiting Fast-Food Consumption

UNITED STATES—It is the one thing many of us go to when we just have one of those days where the notion of cooking or being in the kitchen is not on our radar. Fast-food is something we all love, even those who secretly argue behind the scenes that they don’t indulge in it, at some point in their...

Oh, What A Sweet Tooth!

UNITED STATES—We have been chatting about food the past few weeks in our efforts to highlight the importance of eating healthy and ridding our bodies of potential toxins and all things unhealthy.  Last week we took the approach of talking about things that aren’t always the best for the body, but they have benefits. This week the conversation turns...
