Want to add more pizzazz to your meal but don’t want to compromise on nutrition? Not a problem, when you select any of the following ingredients to spice up your next meal.
While its certainly sometimes easier to stop by the grocery store when you’re out of key household ingredients, it is often healthier – and sometimes even less time-consuming – to make your own at home.
Don’t worry: we haven’t gone soft. But we do realize that life (or a loved one) calls for a bit of indulgence once in a while. With all of the delectable options out there, why settle for the typical processed and/or sugar-laden desserts? Think fresh fruit paired with artisan block and mascarpone cheeses, toasted nuts […]
Let’s face it. While we may enjoy our day-to-day diet choices, thank you very much, it can seem a little daunting to plan a dinner party, anniversary dinner, cocktail hour, or other special occasion when not everyone shares those choices. Before you break out the French bread, cocktail crackers and buttered fingerling potatoes, here are […]
Earlier today we highlighted some approaches to intermittent fasting and recommended a condensed eating window for those who were new to IF. Over time, many people who regularly IF with the condensed approach develop their “ideal” timing and balance to food intake during their eating windows. For those who are new to the approach, we […]
What can we say? We love good food, and we appreciate that you do too. The post has been popular, and we appreciate your comments and requests. As we mentioned last week, we’ve been working on incorporating more seasonal fare into the menu as reader Sonagi requested. Shopping seasonally is, of course, not only good […]
Folks, we read your requests for more of this post, and here it is! We know practical is popular, and we won’t leave you hanging. Look for more installments in the future. And we also heard the call for more seasonal options. We’re still tinkering with that one, but expect a spring menu soon. In […]
Although we’re slowly edging into spring, there’s still enough cold days left on the calendar that are sure to find you reaching for a can of soup. I mean honestly, could a meal be any easier? Simply pop open a can, throw it in the microwave (or a saucepan if you’re feeling particularly culinary) and […]
We’re mixing things up here a bit at MDA and wanted to offer up ideas for (primal) healthy meal plans. What does it mean to do MDA fare, sun up to sun down? Though the choices are mind-boggling, here’s our first installment, a humble (but delicious) design for a full day’s worth of eating recommendations.
Tomatoes – yep. Vinegar – seems fine. Sugar – wait, what? Even ketchup isn’t safe from the wrath of sugar. Think you have to ditch the bottle – the condiment bottle that is – in order to avoid these hidden sugars? Not a chance, especially if you have the baseline kitchen skills necessary to whip […]
We here at Mark’s Daily Apple love salads. And lets face it, what’s not to love? Not only is it healthy, but there is so much opportunity to change it up. You could literally go years without repeating the same salad! However, coming up with new salad “recipes” can be a bit of a challenge…until […]
For the 22 players on the field this Sunday, the Super Bowl represents a time to showcase their strength, power, endurance, and – perhaps most importantly – will to win. It’s a chance to be the best, to score 365 days-worth of bragging rights, and to become the owner of a much-coveted Super Bowl ring […]
Are you doing Umame? No, it’s not the latest dance craze (thank God the Macarena has passed us by) and it’s not a jukebox. Umame is the fifth taste sensation, and until recently we Americans didn’t even know we had it. Never fear: Michelin-rated chefs are falling all over themselves to create the ultimate “umame […]
These three soups are rich in nutrition and flavor. They are filling, yet light, so they will help you lose weight or simply stay trim during the winter months!
Mark’s friend Chef Oren is back with another savory recipe this week in which he features the oft-neglected fennel bulb. Fennel has a mildly sweet licorice flavor and a wonderful crunch in every bite. It is a good source of vitamin C, folate, potassium and dietary fiber. I’ve had this recipe twice in the last […]
Here are two recipes that will treat you right this summer weekend. Enjoy a perfect, mouth-watering mix of watermelon, heirloom tomatoes and feta cheese (trust us it’s delicious) while picnicking this Saturday. Then wake up late to a delectable summer brunch of vegetable and cheese frittata. It looks like it is going to be a […]
And we were just getting over the carb onslaught of the holidays. The Super Bowl presents a little dilemma for guys (and gals) who are health-minded: how to simultaneously hang with buddies, drink beer, maintain healthy eating habits, not feel like a pig, avoid celery and carrot sticks, and all without spending the entire time […]
