It's been several months since I've tried a new diet because of my fatalistic world view and general sense of apathy. But with all the talk of world wars, I felt a renewed enthusiasm for my health and appearance. Wouldn't it be great to find the perfect Apocalypse diet with all the ingredients and flavors […]

While suffering through my first few attempts at daytime interval fasting, I stumbled upon the Warrior Diet. It's the equivalent of being on a date with Mr. Responsible, the 9-to-5 accountant, and meeting a dangerous man who hangs out in smoky bars -- and I don't mean juice bars. I followed a gluten-free diet for […]
Ms. Scarlet's diet quiche is extremely versatile because you can substitute your favorite vegetables and cheeses. What makes it unique is the incredibly healthful crust made of oats and almond flour.

I've officially lost 15 of the 20 pounds I gained during the un-year of lock-downs that gave us the masks without the frivolous masquerade balls way up in the West Hills. I accomplished the weight loss by trying different diets for just one day -- which proves the point that any diet will work as […]
It's nearly impossible to find a low-fat seafood salad recipe with the current high-fat, high-protein craze -- particularly when Col. Mustard and Prof. Plum have gone keto. This is a healthy recipe without any mayonnaise, yogurt or sour cream. It's a spectacular way to use tree-ripened peaches. To lower fat content more, skip the avocado. […]
Most of the time, I add carrots and celery to my crock pot roast beef mainly because I want to use up the carrots that are always sitting on the kitchen island inside the Tudor Mansion. This recipe -- that uses green beans picked from a garden -- was a delicious twist that I highly […]
