Spring In My Step

I am almost out of spring titles, I promise! But MY GOSH, I had a spring in my step yesterday with warm, sunny air all around. We’re having a glorious few days of good spring weather! I demolished this jar of Smooth Operator. Need another asap! In contrast to the Whole Foods PB we’ve been getting for a while that has a very earthy taste, this was just classic smooth, non-gritty peanut butter that we all grew up with (but made without trans fats). I couldn’t get […]

Lemon Asparagus Spring Pasta

We are fully embracing spring today with this seasonal, light pasta featuring the season’s most famous vegetable: asparagus. It’s one of my favorites, and it’s one of Mazen’s too. Do you know why? “Because it makes your tinkle smell.” Sorry to bring up potty talk at the dinner table, but that is my life right now. Mazen thinks anything gross is hi-larious, and if it makes him a healthier eater, then so be it. This pasta recipe won’t weigh you down winter-style. It’s light, easy, and comes […]

Plant-Based Diets Put to the Test for Diabetes

My Why Is Meat a Risk Factor for Diabetes? video shows how meat may play a role in increasing the risk of diabetes, and How May Plants Protect Against  Diabetes? and Plant-Based Diets and Diabetes discuss the potential protective role of healthy plant foods. But plant-based diets not only appear to guard against getting diabetes in the first place, they may successfully treat the disease better than the diabetic diets patients typically are placed on, benefiting both weight and cholesterol. Diets based on whole plant foods can […]

There are four categories I look for when it comes to beauty products ranked by order of importance: AMAZING smell. If it smells good but not great, it’s not good enough.

Risks vs. Benefits of Colonoscopies

Though colonoscopies can cause serious harm in about 1 in every 350 cases, sigmoidoscopies, procedures that use shorter and smaller scopes, have ten times fewer complications. But, do colonoscopies work better? Is their total risk-benefit better? We don’t know since we don’t have results from any randomized, controlled colonoscopy trials, and we won’t until the mid-2020s. So, what should we do in the meanwhile? As I discuss in my video Should We All Get Colonoscopies Starting at Age 50?, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), the […]
