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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]

Perfect, because it reminds me of summer in Florence. Days so humid, you’ [...]
If you’ve been following the LGIT lifestyle for any length of time, you’ve probably figured out that traditional pasta is pretty much a no-go. Low-carb versions aren’t typically low-glycemic, and the the low-glycemic versions don’t exactly taste like pasta. Sadly, I still haven’t found a solution to that problem, [...]
Have you seen these? They’ve probably been out for a while, but I tend to ignore anything remotely nut-related. Also, I’m usually all about not paying someone to individually package something I can package myself, but these are pretty cool. If you’re looking for an easy way to pack a protein and fat source for your LGIT mu [...]

Although Emily has moved on to a more liber [...]
