Post image for You Are What You Eat

It’s a phrase that I’ve heard for years upon years, but one that never quite made any sense to me: You are what you eat. Am I today a bowl of udon noodles? Was I last night a plate of quinoa and sauteed kale? An avocado in the morning and a bean burrito by noon? But after one fateful yoga class, it will now forever make sense to me. Read more »

There are few things, in my eyes, that beat the taste of a freshly baked brownie. Warm, dense, chocolatey, and just a tad undercooked… Pure sweet bliss. Read more »

Microwaves do 'destroy nutrients', but does it really pertain here. We're talking chocolatey decadent dessert. To go around calling people dumb, you need to take a look deep inside your soul and make sure it's not turning black.

I tried the recipe yesterday, because it looks really awesome, and I followed step by step. I even had trouble finding some of the ingredients, such as the coconut oil (in Spain is not very common and it was really expensive, by the way). I didn't miss any of the steps and ingredients (all room temperature) and I didn't get this perfect red velvet colour, in fact it ended being brown, so upset for this... Because I was willing to make this cake since I don't remember when :(
Jill Budzynski -Feb 19, 2014, 8:47PM
Beth, this is a fantastic alternative to using a whole bottle of red food coloring (boooh) in a classic cake, and the goat cheese topping just takes it over the top. Would love to post it with credits to my blog all about dishes that showcase goat cheese. Thank you so much for the recipe!

I just made tthis with some modifications because I didn't have maple syrup and pomegranates, so I used honey and dried cranberries. Wow, you guys, I don't think I'll ever have regular oatmeal again!
Hillary Mitchell -Feb 10, 2014, 3:27PM
Awesome food tip from my doctor of Chinese medicine step-dad, the things that visually mimic certain parts of your body are nourishing for that part. Walnuts;brain, beans;kidneys, if you cut a carrot it resembles an eye, and I've always thought pomegranates beads were like blood cells... a bit weird but kind of fun! http://teeshkielawa.blogspot.com.tr/

I love ghee! My best friend growing up is Indian, so I would always eat at her house ( incase you didn't know, home cooked Indian is the BEST food in the whole world) and her mom would put ghee in everything. She always said is was good for the skin and hair, and to try and eat a spoonful a day. Considering how delicious it is, it's not hard! http://isthistoocostumey.wordpress.com/

From a Bio-Chemistry perspective saturated fats ("fatty acid tails" people) are the second best for us. The best "fat" would be unsaturated... However it does not exist in milk form so it's kind of pointless. I love this post though!!
jessi -Feb 13, 2014, 3:42PM
i completely agree with emma, not all fats are bad for you. that's like saying not to eat avocados..theyre pure fat but the good kind of fat. the fat in dairy milk provides you with nutrients you need. I'm not a big milk drinking because its always given me stomach aches but I always keep a carton of organic milk in my fridge. dairy milk is NOT unhealthy and you shouldn't promote it as unhealthy. if youre drinking whole milk every day then yes that can be unhealthy but drinking non fat organic milk is perfectly fine.
