Welcome to WE EAT

Fuel your body and it will fuel you.

I love food and I eat a LOT!  I can eat as much as most men.  I don’t hide it either.  My friends can’t believe how much I can put down.  A whole Chipotle burrito, down to the last grain of rice that fell out on the tin foil, no problem!  They shake their heads.

Maybe my definition of “gourmet” is loose as a goose BUT when I prepare a healthy meal that’s better tasting than most of the restaurants we frequent, I can’t help but reinforce my own effort. An effort that took me about…….15 loooooong minutes:)! As usual, no fancy recipes. Check this one out!

I have a personal policy when it comes to adding more technology to my life. I ask myself one honest question.

Will this technology save or cost me time? It’s so easy to get caught up in the latest and greatest of apps and gadgets that are designed to add value to your life. And they do. Sometimes.

My Thai

Thai food is one of my favorite Asian cuisines and much healthier when made at home.

Thai Peanut Bowl

Thai Peanut Bowl-0016

The advantage of cooking Thai food at home is that you can control the amount of oil and sodium. Americans make the mistake of assuming that eating out at Asian restaurants is healthy. Quite the contrary! You should consider these dinners a splurge unless, of course, you order steamed vegetables and a dipping sauce on the side. THAT is the only way to insure you are eating a reasonable amount of calories with low fat content.

Remember, you aren’t in China, Japan, Vietnam or Thailand– you’re in America where Asian restaurants have “Americanized” the menu. That means huge portions, too much oil, and mega sodium!

“Ladles”- Sweet Potato and Cabbage Soup

Hit the jackpot on a winter's night with one of my absolute favorite soups EVER!

Shutterstock Ladle-Welcome to “Ladles”, an ongoing series of healthy soups, stewps and gumbos!

A year ago my son gave me the Moosewood Restaurant cookbook, Simple Suppers, for Christmas. This recipe originated from this cookbook with a few tweaks and additions.

I urge you to try it even if you aren’t a huge fan of sweet potatoes or cabbage. This Indonesian flavored soup is savory (garlic and ginger root!), slightly spicy (cayenne!), bizarre (peanut butter!) and creamy (there’s NO cream!). Serve as a fancy shmancy fine dining course OR at halftime of the Super Bowl to sober up the crowd. Your guests will think they’re dreamin’!

Don’t be ashamed to lick your spoon- I did!

“Ladles”- Lentil and Sausage Gumbo

No better time than winter for one pot meals served with a ladle.

Hearty soups feed the soul. Cheating is encouraged! Nobody cares if you chopped all fresh, organic vegetables or threw in a generic brand of frozen peas and carrots.

Comfort food doesn’t have to be mac and cheese or mashed potatoes. Protein doesn’t have to be a slab of meat. One pot to wash and leftovers that taste even better the next day!

Lentil and Sausage Gumbo (animal friendly, of course)
