in my own words

after 11 years of writing a blog, sharing recipes—and my life—on social media, and sending three cookbooks out into the world, one of the most frequent questions I’m asked is, “How do you eat all this incredible food and still look good?” Well, first I think we should change that question to, “How do you eat all this incredible food and still feel good?” And second, it’s clear that most of my readers are trying to figure out how they can fill their lives with enjoyment and indulgence without feeling like they need to deprive themselves as punishment in exchange. That’s why I wanted to dedicate my first magazine to what I consider to be “mindful eating.” I believe you can cook, eat good food, and entertain—even if gatherings are small or…

what mindful eating means to me

It’s not an accident that I chose a job that lets me cook for a living. I love food! I love thinking about what to cook next, experimenting in the kitchen, sharing my recipes, feeding other people, discovering new flavors and ingredients, and, of course, nourishing my body and soul with all.the.food. But it’s also important to me to feel good about my body. It’s not necessarily about the way my body looks, but I always want to feel comfortable in my own skin. That’s why balance, or what I like to call mindful eating, is pretty much my best friend. So much of my approach to eating, moving, and living has been inspired by my life in California. It’s the California way to fill your plate with fresh, whole foods; move…

a week with gaby

monday MONDAYS ARE FOR RECALIBRATING! To ensure I’m making choices in line with my weekly goals, I always make a plan for the day. That way I know I’ll be getting in lots of green veggies, putting plenty of colors of fruits and vegetables on my plate (which means more anti-aging, disease-fighting antioxidants), and rounding it out with healthy fats and whole grains for carb-loaded energy. tuesday I LIKE TO GET MOVING EARLY IN THE WEEK! After dialing things back from the weekend on Monday, by Tuesday I’m feeling energized. It’s time to get active! If the weather allows, I get outside. I love to schedule a hike-meeting hybrid. Or head to the gym—or make your way to your home gym. Do what you can to set aside time to get your body…

make a grain bowl

Grain bowls are perfect for when you want something hearty and nutrient-dense, thanks to all those whole grains. And they’re great for last-minute meals and using up what you have on hand. GRAIN SWAP TRY ALL OF THESE GREAT GRAINS! BUY THEM IN BULK AND STOCK YOUR PANTRY. BARLEY Chewy barley is considered an ancient grain and is one of the richest sources of soluble and insoluble fibers. BROWN RICE This rice retains the bran around the rice kernel. Its longer cooking time pays off in more fiber. BULGUR These wheat kernels are boiled, dried, and cracked. Bulgur has a tender and chewy texture, an earthy flavor, and so much fiber. FARRO Nutty and chewy farro is high in protein and fiber, and it comes both pearled (no bran, fast-cooking) and semipearled (some nutrient-rich bran). QUINOA Containing more protein than any other…
