food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

I am not a gadget geek, but I do love my spiralizer. It is so loved that it has quickly earned its place on the countertop, along with my Froothie blender and juicer, my Magimix and of course my kettle (20 years and still going!). I have a small kitchen, so this is quite the honour. …

Long time no see! Sorry for the tardiness in posting. In the three-and-a-bit years I have been writing Food to Glow I don’t think I have ever gone this long without committing food and thought to paper. I’ve missed you! And I feel a bit on the back foot with Thanksgiving. It is next week. Next week! …

Now that the shorts and flips flops have been tucked away for another year, I feel safe to resume my kale-centric posts. Although my Instagram feed is pretty much a 365 devotional diary to this heartiest and most nutritious of vegetables, I have inveigled kale into just a few warmer weather posts – e.g. my Greens and Beans …

This post should have been subtitled, “How To Deal with a Glut of Greens.” The long and short of it is that I have planters and planters full of green things. Big green things. Sword-like black kale, great frothy tufts of curly kale (redbore and Pentland), umbrella-like rainbow and Swiss chards, two types of sorrel (Buckler leaf and …

It has everything I desire in a breakfast item: contrasting textures and tastes, banging …

“Oh, thrice and four times happy those who plant cabbages.” Francois Rabelais, 16th century French writer M. Rabelais might now be in the minority with that opinion, but from a health standpoint, he’s spot on. Cabbages have been cultivated for at least 6000 years, probably originating from wild, non-head forming greens (acephala), of which modern …

I realise that some of you may be reclining on the sofa digesting a rather large meal. Feet up, hand on distended belly, telly at full volume (to drown out the clattering of a million dishes being cleaned in the kitchen). You may be kicking back waiting for a second wind; after all,  Auntie Jean’s …

All day long I have been under the misapprehension that Thanksgiving is this Thursday. With a wee panic I have been peeling, chopping, mixing, roasting…burning my hand. But, I have literally just popped ‘Thanksgiving Day 2013′ (with my good hand) into a well-known search engine and see with relief that it is the 28th. The …

Regular readers will know I am a bit of breakfast-head. If breakfast were a religion I would be proselytising  on a street corner, shoving avocado-smeared toast in your hand as you rushed by, late and ratty for your train.  In other words, a bit evangelical. Small e, mind. Happily, I’ve noticed in my nutrition groups …
