Curious aboutthe relationship between antioxidants and breast cancer? 

Antioxidants are molecules that inhibit oxidation – the chemical reaction that sees the transfer of electrons or hydrogen from one substance to an oxidizing agent.

Migrating or transitioning to a healthier life is not easy for many people.  Our daily lives are riddled with temptation, vices and bad habits.  Giving up our bad habits and diet is very similar to quitting smoking or alcohol, in that our diet does have a physiological, mental and emotional hold on us.  We need to be able to take one step at a time into wellness.  Trying to look at it longer term is not always the best approach.

Gastronomic Reflections on Obesity from 1825 Paris, France

POSTED BY Pink Ribbon Cooking / June 20, 2013

Tuesday's adoption of obesity as a disease prompted me to open a post I had been working on about the reflections of Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, A court of Appeals Judge in France and a well respected gastronomic voice in early 1800's Paris and France.

In this post I reflect on a book Brillat-Savarin wrote called Physiology of Taste.  The Physiology of Taste is a reflective piece, where Brillat-Savarin shares his thoughts, referred to as meditations, on the pleasures or connoisseurship of food.  These mediations explore our physiological and psychological desires for food, liquids and how these drive our appetite.  Along the way he shares several conversations with friends and dialogs with himself.

Physilogy of Taste is often thought of as the most important book written about food.  Given our ever expanding dialog about food and the quality of research, education and contributors in recent years I can't agree with that but, without exception, this is one of the most defining and relevant explorations about our relationship with food and how it affects our behaviors and life.

Grilled Broccoli with Walnut Sauce

Everything cooked on a grill tastes great, and broccoli is no exception. This was originally a stir-fry dish for me. I changed it one night to reflect my desire to not cook inside.

Baked Falafel

I love Falafel, but I don’t like the fact that a simple and healthy dish gets ruined by deep frying.  In this version we focus n the flavor of falafel and the exterior “crust”.  By baking in an...Read More
