Dinner Tonight: Greek Salad with Dill and Parsley

greek-saladAfter finding out that dill and parsley are a cancer-fighting super duo, I knew I had to share this recipe for Greek salad. I have posted a similar recipe before, but the added hint of dill and parsley just adds a really nice flavor.

My husband and I first tried a similar salad from the salad bar at a local grocery store. It was so fresh and crisp, and summer perfect. It was also very expensive! So I thought, I could make it at home at a fraction of the cost. The great thing about this recipe is that you can adjust it to your taste.

The only thing that would make this salad better are tomatoes straight from the garden (only a few more weeks!!!). Continue reading “Dinner Tonight: Greek Salad with Dill and Parsley”

Say No to Sugary Drinks with These Infused Water Recipes

fruit-waterIt’s hot outside and cold drinks are in. But instead of sweet iced tea, iced lattes and sugary lemonade, quench your thirst with homemade flavored water.

Sugar consumption is a real problem in the U.S. The  World Health Organization recommends no more than 5% of your daily caloric intake come from added sugar. For the average adult with a normal body mass index (BMI), 5% amounts to 25 g, or approximately 2 tablespoons of sugar.

Apparently, sugar must be too easy to swallow, because Americans on average consume 10 times that amount per day – and the biggest culprit is beverages. Not only does consuming this much sugar lead to weight gain, but it is also associated with an increased risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and gout, and it has even been linked to cancer.

Your best bet to beat the heat and stay hydrated is good old water. Continue reading “Say No to Sugary Drinks with These Infused Water Recipes”

Parsley and Dill May Help Prevent Cancer

parsley-dillA new study published in the Journal of Natural Products has found that the combination of parsley and dill may help prevent cancer.

Scientists from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), the N. D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry (RAS), the Institute of Developmental Biology (RAS) and the Institute of Cell Biophysics (RAS) found that when parsley and dill seeds were combined, a compound called glaziovianin A was produced. This compound along with its structural analogs was found to inhibit the growth of tumor cells. This compound already exists and is currently harvested from the leaves of the Brazilian tree Ateleia glazioviana Baill, but production is costly.

Food: It’s Not About Willpower

binge-eatingIf you’re like many of my clients, you may have struggled for years, often decades, having a dysfunctional relationship with food. Food and emotions are so intertwined, which can lead us to eat for any number of reasons other than physical hunger. We can eat socially, mindlessly, emotionally, or have binge-eating behaviors that keep us overweight, frustrated, exhausted and unhappy. But it’s not just about willpower.

Binge eating can happen because:

We’re over-hungry, which leads to overeating.
We haven’t created a strategic plan for our eating.
A trigger (person, place, thought or feeling) encourages a binge. Continue reading “Food: It’s Not About Willpower”
