Split Pea Soup! part 4 of 4

Split pea soup got a bad rap in some classic horror flick I can’t remember, but just wait a little minute, here, because it deserves another look. It’s yummy, it’s cheap, it’s filling, and it digests by the time you go to bed. And that lets you rest, rebuild, and repair all night. Which tends […]

Top 10 legumes, part 3 of 4

Here’s a primer on using some of my favorite whole foods with a weird name, pronounced “lay-gooms.” Eating a lot of these, along with lots of greens, vegetables, and fruits leads to finding your ideal weight. Everything about them is perfect for weight loss! They are bulky, high in fiber, low in calories, and high […]

Everything you need to know about legumes, part 2 of 4

Matthew wrote me and said instead of telling people to eat legumes, I need to tell people what legumes are, and what the best 10 are. That last part, the best 10, is somewhat subjective.

On the Epic Price of Bad Food

I’m running through tiny towns near pastoral Nidda, Germany, early in the morning in mid-November through a frost-bitten field of collard greens. Past a stream full of tiny, white-as-snow ducklings, cowbells clanking in the distance. Or I’m winning a doubles match in an 11-9 third-set tiebreaker. Or losing it. Doesn’t matter, for the purpose of […]

Honest Abe, Cholera, and Fruits and Veggies

I am reading Team of Rivals right now, the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Abraham Lincoln by the eminent historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. The book tells the story of the four rivals for the presidency Lincoln brought in after he was elected the 16th President of the United States. Part of Lincoln’s singular genius was that  […]

I buy drinks at convenience stores!

    I’ve not been to Tennessee in well over 20 years, so it was a treat to visit Memphis and Nashville to speak, recently. I didn’t get close to the Tennessee Valley, which I drove through those many years ago with my new husband. We were totally awed by how lush and green it […]
