By  •  Main Dish

Can pasta salad help you live longer?

In that interview he said, “Other than genes, it is hard to think of something that can …

That might sound like a strange request if you aren’t hip to all the health nerd news, but I immediately knew what he was talking about. You see, consuming 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of turmeric every day is one of the very best things you could do to improve your …

The 8-Hour Black Bean Soup with Cashew-Lime Sour Cream

A few years ago, I made something called the 8-minute black bean soup and it was a big hit. I’m not sure anyone actually managed to make it in 8 minutes (I think the best I heard was about 12 minutes), but nevertheless it was super-fast to make because you simply dumped a can of beans into a pan with some spices and stuff and called it a day.

Cream of Wild Mushroom & Wild Rice Soup

The other night I was making a wild rice soup that I found in the Spring 2018 Forks Over Knives magazine, by Carla Christian.
