 Linda Widicker in North Dakota tells me that in 2009, she weighed 300 lbs. and had diabetes, arthritis, depression and anxiety, chronic fatigue, and hypothyroidism.

 Alas, our friend Michael Randolph, from Kansas City, Missouri (a bachelor, no surprise), well, this fridge is just begging for some lovin’. We find in it, well, um, not much. It’s got olive jam.

Don’t be fast, cheap, easy, or fake!

Don’t be fast, cheap, easy, or fake! “You Are What You Eat. So don’t be fast, cheap, easy, or fake.” Isn’t it funny how those are some of the worst descriptors for human beings. How would you feel if you heard one of your friends had described you to someone else as “cheap and fake?” […]

My 17-yo daughter Emma was examining the contents of our fridges and said, “Mom, you should take a photo of what we eat, because it’s so pretty.” (Update: Emma is going to college on a full-ride soccer scholarship!

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 […]

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. I will tell you, nonetheless, 10 great legumes, because this whole class of food is HIGHLY UNDERRATED. That’s my next […]
