An Interview With Nancy Slonim Aronie
Omega: What’s one thing you wish you'd learned about creativity early in your career? Nancy: It would have been nice to know that anything is okay and that there’s no right and wrong with creativity. A tree can be magenta—it doesn’t have to be green. Writing doesn’t have to sound like Shakespeare. More
Mushrooms caps on the grill.
Portobello mushrooms are a great vegetarian option at any barbecue, thanks to their robust flavor and ability to satisfy any hunger level. Mushrooms are known for their nutritional benefits, including selenium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, and more. In fact at 630 mg per serving, one portobello mushroom contains more potassium than a banana. More

“Papa, what’s your battle plan?” My granddaughter Natalia has asked me that question for the three years we’ve been having imaginary galactic battles. Her army is mainly Pokémon, popular characters that come to us from Japan. They have strengths and weaknesses, and the capacity to “evolve” and gain in ability and talent. Natalia is also aided by the usual assortment of additional friends: fairies, ponies, and favorite stuffed animals all lined up on the side of goodness and truth. More
Kombu broth is so easy it’s almost thoughtless—all you have to do is throw the elements in the pot. This broth is perfect on its own, but will inspire days of creations. You can elaborate upon it by adding cultured vegetables for a warm and chunky soup. You can use it as a base for any puree or soup you make in the blender, you can steam grains in it, or you can steam vegetables in it for a soup. It’s also a great addition to any juice fast you might partake in, over any number of days. More
You don’t necessarily have to give up your favorite foods when you are looking to eat better. Sometimes you just need to find a healthier version. This recipe may be the world’s healthiest pizza, according to Jon Gabriel. He says the egg yolks are a more complete protein that contain healthy fats and are easier to digest than other proteins, and the psyllium husk—a form of soluble fiber made from the husks of seeds from a type of plantain—helps bind the crust. Makes 4 10-inch pizzas More
guy sleeping doesn't have willpower to get up
Sticking to our commitments is one of the most challenging things to do. Why is that? Because we have an unreal view of what it means to be human: We like to think of ourselves as finished products, but we’re not. We are actually works in progress. More
Holiday meals in the United States tend to rely on traditional family recipes and comfort foods, like mashed potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin or pecan pie, but they can also be a time to honor different cultures, connect with your friends, and expand your palate. Stephanie Meade, founder and editor of InCultureParent, says that for many years she and her family have celebrated Thanksgiving with friends who are not American, and now the holiday doesn’t seem complete without a bunch of people from other countries.
