Click the photo above for my chocolate granola recipe! This is a question that I always get, so I figured I'd hand it over to y'all, because my answer's so unfun. What do I eat for breakfast?

Here's an interesting little tidbit I picked up from a Weekly Spark article about misconceptions that we have about our bodies and doing right by them: So what makes 7 (or 8 or 9) p.m. a magical cutoff time anyway?

I really, really, reeeeeally wanted to write about Jamie Oliver's new show "Food Revolution," but something much more compelling came across my desk. Thanks to Ink for sending it over. We're all familiar with my disdain for high fructose corn syrup, right? I mean, the stuff's pretty awful. If you'd like a not-so-quick rundown, check [...]

I'm a rice eater. I have about four different kinds of rice in my pantry at this moment.. none of them white. They may be white in color, but they're certainly not of the "American White Rice" ilk. Why? There are a few reasons. But first, I think it might be important to explain the [...]
