Taking back our kitchens and embracing the act of cooking real food is probably the single most important thing that any one person can do to create a healthy, sustainable food system. It is also a magical alchemy that transforms individual ingredients into ambrosia and pleasure.
As a food blogger and as a friend, I love answering your comments and emails. Except when you ask me to solve your wicked complicated health problems and why you can't substitute mayonnaise for almond meal. Here are 10 questions not to ask me, again.
Nanotechnology has the potential to revolutionize our world for the better in fields like energy, medicine and aerospace.

That our relationship with food, and its implications for our health, and that of the planet, are rather badly broken is quite clear. The better we can all say exactly how it's broken, the more likely any of us is to live long enough -- to see it fixed.

In nutrition science, there's a famous paradox: in many parts of the world, especially the "advanced" nations, the poorest people are not starving. In...
Sustainable dietary guidelines are not a new idea -- Drs. Joan Gussow and Kate Clancy, two food systems experts, first argued for them in a seminal 1986 article in Journal of Nutrition Education.
Parents usually have their kids' best interest in mind. They want them to grow healthy, acquire eating habits that promote wellness, and have beautiful, strong teeth. So how come kids are drinking so much sugar, an ingredient on the top of the list of foods to consume-less-of?
