Livening Up Bland Proteins with Some Pizzazz!

I’ve never been a big fan of dousing steak sauce on a beautiful grass-fed filet or covering an arugula and pear salad with a wad of gorgonzola. I tend to like simple, local and fresh… all of which make for an opportunity to enjoy the real taste of the food you’re eating instead of masking […]

Paleo at San Ysidro Ranch, Montecito

It’s been a lovely getaway here at the San Ysidro Ranch; the perfect place for some R&R after Sunday’s marathon.

Marketplace.org featured a great article on this very topic in late fall of 2014; which is a far cry from what many children are served during lunch at school. Of course, the idea is great, but how would it be paid for? It’s obviously far more economical to serve highly refined, mass produced  food versus […]

3 Cups of Skim Milk

Drink it up and meet your daily recommended needs for Calcium, according to the USDA.   And to clarify, it’s not just milk, it’s low fat milk. That’s it.  The whole suggestion in its entirety doesn’t mention anything about how if you’re consuming dairy, it should at least be grass-fed, organic and local.     […]

Five Food Groups?

Funny, I thought there were three:  carbohydrates, proteins and fats.  Apparently, I was wrong.   According to the USDA, there are five: fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods and dairy.   And we should be mostly eating these foods, and avoiding empty calories, which, as per their site include “calories from solid fats and/or added sugars.
