Welcome to my crazy world of real food cooking ...

Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly Plants. -- Michael Pollan

I wish I could take credit for that because I think it sums up how we should eat. Simply -- eat stuff that really is food, instead of stuff that is food like substance. The supermarket is almost entirely food-like-substances, and, my friends, you should probably never ever eat them.

Fortunately, there is a world of deliciousness out there, and it can all be had in a way that not only doesn't harm your health, but in a way that benefits you hugely.

I think it's important to eat stuff that satisfies you, that keeps your blood sugar stable, and that gives you stuff your body really needs to run optimally.

But baby, it's gotta taste good.

I really like getting experimental in the kitchen. I love cooking, I love layering flavours, and I love coming up with really super yummy food. I have very strong opinions about what constitutes food, and there are a lot of things I won't touch in the kitchen. Bottom line? Pretty much everything I make is ridiculously good for you even if it tastes decadent. Although there are occasional big fat cheats ... but even those stick to real food, my friends.

For food that is usual gluten free, usually free of cane sugar, usually super low on the glycemic index, full of protein, fiber, flavour, and excellent energy, join me and Alice down the rabbit hole.

Every recipe on this blog is my own original effort and idea, so please pass 'em on, giving credit where credit is due.

Many thanks, and come back often. I'm really glad you are here!

King Oyster Mushrooms

To me there is no mushroom more heavenly.

Sadly I crossed a picket-line to get them. Unfortunately, it was unwittingly. The picketline somehow appeared only as I was leaving, at which point it was too late to show solidarity to my brothers and sisters, and for this I am truly regretful.

However, ill-gotten or not, I couldn't leave my mushroom score to languish, so I sauteed them with frivolity not at all befitting a scab. A generous portion of herbe de provence, sea salt, and chili powder raised these mushrooms from wow to YOW. They were that good. But not good enough, I confess, to make me cross a picket-line to by more enviro-mushrooms from T&T Supermarket. Enviro-mushrooms are grown locally and free from chemicals, irradiation, and spite of any kind. Unfortunately, the same can't apparently be said of the international conglomerate that runs T&T. According to the striking union members, the company is guilty of ill-treatment of Chinese workers. Of course my mind immediately went to: and you know if THEY are complaining, it's gotta be bad.
