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...

Going Vegan Is Not Easy!

UNITED STATES—For quite some time I have been thinking about going vegan. On occasion, I have actually done it, where I would completely give up red meat, pork and seafood.

A Little Pasta Won’t Kill You

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...

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...

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...
