Arugula Pizza

Crispy Popcorn Tofu

I have spent the last two months trying to master cooking tofu. And I think I have finally nailed it! It's actually very easy.

It kind of seems like the brain needs to accept glucose, and part of this disease is preventing that. The cells die, and they can't accept glucose anymore.

Stuffed Peppers

I felt super inspired while cooking the other day, and decided to try stuffed bell peppers. First I made a huge pot of golden quinoa, but I think this recipe would be just as good with instant brown rice. I steamed zucchini, mushrooms, and broccoli, cut up very small. Then I browned some 1% lean … Continue reading Stuffed Peppers
