10 Things to Understand About “Being Healthy”

10 Things to Understand About “Being Healthy”

“I’m tired ALL the time!” I told the doctor adamantly. My blood tests had come back normal, with no explanation as to why I would still feel fatigued. Over the years doctors told me: “You’re depressed,” or “Your blood pressure is a little low, so, maybe […]

Green Chili Stew

Growing up in the Southwest, I feel that I had a great introduction to authentic Mexican and Navajo cuisine. Much like I grew to love the desert heat and the smell of an oncoming rainstorm, I grew to love spicy foods with complex flavors from Navajo tacos […]

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I cannot remember the first time I made a chocolate chip cookie. I know that before I made them, we rarely ever had homemade cookies. There is no engraved memory of me picking up a bag of chocolate chips and saying, Mom! Can I bake […]
