the almighty onion

by KalaLea on December 7, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

Next time you use an onion, take a look at the beauty inside. Those gorgeous rings remind me of mini-galaxy spiral arms. Evidence of the universe in all its splendor, onions are loved all over the world. Imagine your favorite dishes without onions. (Don’t do that, it’s too sad.) Onions are cousins to garlic, shallots, scallions, leeks, and chives. There are many types, like hundreds, maybe even thousands if you count hybrids. I’ve been reading about

Day 23: eating raw

by KalaLea on August 30, 2011 • Posted in News

It’s taken me 23 days to re-integrate the very old habit of writing into my daily regimen. Why? Because on August 9th, I decided to try a 100% raw food diet for sixty days.

Recipe by KalaLea K
Serves 1 person per ear of corn

Corn or maize has been around for thousands of years. It’s a pity that it’s one of the top GMO crops today. Given this fact, it’s best to buy fresh ears of corn from your local farmer’s market, CSA, or food coop.

Freaky Frozen Grapes

by KalaLea on July 29, 2011 • Posted in Recipes

On WDIET’s Facebook page, I posted this question:
What does one eat when it’s 98 degrees outdoors?
Baly, a FB fan & friend, responded, Frozen Grapes!

Having only prepared this yummy treat once, years ago, I was eager to experiment again.

Deep Purple and red grapes are loaded with anti-oxidant warriors (more so than the green or white grapes). These antioxidants are found primarily in the stem, skin, leaf and seeds of grapes, rather than

Vegan Sushi Rolls

by KalaLea on July 27, 2011 • Posted in Kala's Favorites

My new travel companion — Macro Vegetarian’s Vegan Sushi Rolls — a mouthful of goodness. Most times when I do my volunteer shift at the Food Coop, I arrive with an empty belly. I often find myself pacing the aisles in search of the perfect, healthy carry-along snack so that I can effectively serve my duty as a “walker”. (Coop members will understand.) My favorite kind are the ginger sushi rolls — a heavenly burst
