a world of flavor

Before hummus was on the shopping list of every health-minded North American and tahini was sold in every grocery store, I had the good fortune of being introduced to authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. In my early twenties, I dated an Iraqi man who grew up in Abu Dhabi. His mom was an incredible cook, and over the span of our relationship, I got a steady introduction to a whole new world of foods – things I might not have tried until years later. Over several years, I was offered saucy spoonfuls of eggplant and okra-based dishes, an irresistible meat pizza called lahm bi ajeen, dolma, date-stuffed cookies and, perhaps my favorite, Middle Eastern braided cheese (which goes by jibneh mshallaleh and many other names). Coming from a small Canadian city…

what is clean eating?

Eat when hungry, stop when full. Find out what macro values reflect your health goals and strive to eat within them.

Q/What’s your secret to making never-boring salads? A/I can’t abide eating just a bowl full of leaves! Rather, I take the “Elaine approach” from Seinfeld: I make salads “with lots of stuff on it.” (That was always her order at the diner where they hung out.) I start with a simple protein – grilled salmon, smoked trout, baked tofu, gigante beans, pulled chicken - usually over a base of arugula because I love that peppery bite! I always season salads with salt and pepper, a restaurant trick that goes a long way. I also like to focus on balancing textures: a little crisp, a little creamy, something pickled, something dry-crunchy (tortilla chips, nuts, breadsticks). That way, every bite has an interesting mouthfeel. – IVY MANNING Mailbox Be social! We want to hear from you! Take…
