Cooking & Recipes
Healthy food doesn’t have to mean boring food. Explore the world of healthy eating.

Is Your Organic Garden Really Organic? Hidden Problems with Lead and Arsenic in your soil
You know not to garden near your house, because your home was once painted with lead-based paint. You know not to garden near the road because automobile exhaust used to contain lead. But did you know that former farming practices might have contributed to lead and arsenic contamination in your soil?

Local Honey: Can It Alleviate Allergies?
As one who makes his living by writing about allergies and asthma, I am often asked about the potential health benefits of using local honey. Here I am talking about alleviating allergy symptoms, not “curing” allergies, which is far easier said than done. Honey contains bits and pieces of pollen and honey. As an immune system booster, it is quite powerful. In talks and articles and in my books, I advocate using local honey. Frequently I’ll get e-mails from readers who want to know exactly what I mean by local honey, and how “local” should it be. This is what I usually advise.

“Tastes Like Chicken” Cashew Gravy
Place all ingredients in a blender and liquefy. Heat in a medium pan over medium heat, stirring frequently until thick. Add more water if the gravy becomes too thick. Keep warm. This recipe is so simple, yet it amazingly tastes just like chicken gravy!

Is Your Microwave Oven Safe?
Inside your microwave oven, an electron tube called a magnetron produces the microwaves, which bounce around inside the oven’s metal interior until they are absorbed by food. The microwaves cause water molecules in the food to vibrate, producing heat that cooks the food. Since the microwave energy is changed to heat as soon as it is absorbed by food, it cannot make food radioactive or “contaminated.”

Immune A-Go-Go Soup
Good enough for dinner any night, this soup is of special benefit for those in the midst of chemotherapy or radiation treatments. Variations on this soup are a regular part of my anti-cancer lifestyle.

Potato Poppers
Mmm! Try these YUMMY Potato Poppers for yourself, your next party, or your family. They're fun, yummy and easy. Made with mashed potatos, rice, Parmesan cheese and other common and easy-to-find ingredients.

Cranberry-Orange Relish
This festive flavor-treat can be used as you would otherwise use cranberry sauce. Or toss a few tablespoons into a holiday salad of mixed baby greens, toasted pecans and raspberry vinaigrette for a piquant spark.

Heart-Healthy Garlic Mashed Potatoes
For many of us, mashed potatoes are a favorite comfort food. Unlike the traditional preparation that is loaded with saturated fat and cholesterol, this healthy updated version is not only delicious but heart-healthy as well. Try it -- you'll like it!

Thanksgiving Family Recipe: Sweet Potato Corn Bread
The following cholesterol-free recipe celebrates corn — one of the original Thanksgiving foods — in this unique and delicious quick bread. Bake and serve it along with your holiday feast, or use it to make a delectable version of traditional stuffing.

You Can Eat Healthy This Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving can be a difficult time for people who strive to be health conscious. Year after year, many of us seem to fall into the pattern of overeating the many rich foods and often unhealthy foods that frequently play a part in this holiday tradition.

Vegetable Upside-Down Casserole
Everyone likes fruity upside-down cakes; why not try the same approach with vegetables? This casserole, which is fun to make and even more fun to eat, has quickly become a family favorite.

Frugal, Nutritious Snacks for Kids
While we may not be able to change the world, we can change what is available to our children in our own homes. Here are a few healthy alternatives to those fat- and sugar-laden store-bought snacks.

Quick, Healthy Snacks and Fun!
Why not turn quick, healthy snacks into a fun activity? With a little help from you, kids can make easy, no-cook treats that I’ll call snack balls. Children are more likely to eat food that they make themselves, and they’ll have fun doing it.
