Vegan Cabbage Rolls Just in Time for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is coming, and one happy side effect of the wearing-of-the-green holiday is that cabbage goes on sale in grocery stores all over the U.S. For cabbage fans like myself, that's the perfect chance to try something new with this ultra-healthful green vegetable. I think these Vegan Cabbage Rolls from FatFree Vegan Kitchen look like a delicious option for Meatless Monday, or any other day when you have cabbage in the vegetable crisper. ...more

A Few BlogHer Food Speakers Dish On Their Favorite Seattle Food Spots

The countdown to BlogHer Food '12 continues and so does our series of interviews with our amazing speakers. This week I asked the question that I know is on everyone's mind: What's your favorite food spot in Seattle? We asked some speakers who live in and around the Seattle area, of course. I also phrased it as such -- food spot -- in case someone wanted to give some outside-the-box food places in their recommendations. I was right to do that and you'll have to read on to see why....more

Incorporate a Serving of Lentils into Your Diet

Question: Can a person learn to love lentils? The thing is, I've been trying to incorporate as many healthy foods into my diet as possible -- salmon, broccoli, spinach, and whole grains are among my favorites. But lentils?

Paula Deen? Why Not Blame Winnie the Pooh?

So Paula Deen has type II diabetes. Big deal. So do 26 million other Americans last time the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention checked. And I've read what media outlets are writing—but it's not about the butter. It's one thing for the Huffington Post to publish blanket statements about diabetes being a "major consequence of heavy eating." But the Detroit Free Press? Shame on the editor for allowing a reference that insinuates Deen's diabetes is a result of "high-fat, deep-fried food." Fat is not bad for us. Being fat is bad for us.
