Taking Control Of Your Seizures With Food

Quick and Dirty Chai Latte

Quick and Dirty Chai Latte
With all this summer weather, sometimes you just want something that’s cool and refreshing. The Raspberry-Mint Iced Tea is a great option, but it doesn’t have a 1:1 ratio, which means you need a snack to go with it. Luckily, you can add heavy cream to just about anything to increase the fat content, and that trick works great wit [...]

Charlie Got a Makeover

A few months ago The Charlie Foundation updated their website and added a snazzy new recipe section, complete with videos! If you’re not familiar with the Charlie Foundation, it is an organization that was founded in 1994 to provide information on diet therapies to families of children with epilepsy and other neurological disorders.

Easy Granola

Easy Granola
Note: This was scheduled to post two weeks ago, but something happened while I was away on vacation and it didn’t, so I’m posting it today. It’s OK though, it’s still a great recipe, and it’s exactly what I had for breakfast this morning! I just love dairy, even though it doesn’t always love me back. Prior [...]

Sunbutter Pancakes

Sunbutter Pancakes
I wish someone would enlighten me on the pancake craze. I just don’t get it. Sure, they’re pretty and fluffy and look beautiful glistening in syrup, but 5 minutes later they’re a soggy mushy mess that falls apart while you try desperately to skewer them on your fork. Too much work, I think, unless we’re talking about [...]

Monday Must-Have: Kitchen Shears

Having adopted the LGIT lifestyle for the last few weeks. I’ve come to believe that living without a pair of kitchen shears is just asking for kitchen violence. With their wide sharp blades and cute little built in herb stripper, kitchen shears are perfect for heavy duty jobs like splitting a whole chicken in half, tricky tasks like cu [...]

As some of you may know, we share our kitchen space with a really cool program at Boston Medical Center called the Demonstration Kitchen. The Demo Kitchen teaches healthy cooking cl [...]

Blueberry Clafoutis

Blueberry Clafoutis
 *Recipe and photos by Stacey Meredith I recently read that human beings eat more fruit than nature intended. Considering we eat strawberries year-round even though strawberries don’t grow in New England during winter, there’s probably some truth in that. There’s also some truth in the notion that we should live each day to [...]

Kitchen Tip

Kitchen Tip
Here’s a quick kitchen tip: use rice to help clean out your coffee grinder. This week we’ve been working on a recipe that calls for ground chia seeds. Although it’s super simple to grind chia seeds in a coffee grinder, the clean-up is a little more complicated because chia seeds + water = a gelly sticky mess. We’ve si [...]

Patriotic Pops

Patriotic Pops
I’m sure everyone is more than ready to get this holiday weekend started, so I’ll make this quick. No summer celebration is complete with a cold sweet treat, so we’re offering up these patriotic pops. Berries and coconut. Need I say more? Ok maybe a little. I love coconut. It’s creamy, and sweet and reminds me of bei [...]
