Not Your Grandma's Oatmeal

  Oatmeal is like a pair of favorite black leggings. They can fall anywhere on the spectrum from ho-hum boring to absolutely mouthwatering. It's all about the trimmings.  I love oatmeal. I make it for breakfast all the time. It’s got a surprising amount of protein, sticks to your ribs until lunchtime, and it is not expensive.

Oats keep your digestive system regular, reduce anxiety, and are high in fiber and protein. The ginger and turmeric are...

So I guess I'll pamper myself a little.  My skin is ruddy, sensitive and oily. Since I spend all my time outdoors, I get a lot of sun. I'm constantly reapplying sunscreen, which leaves my pores clogged...

KELP BONE BROTH

KELP BONE BROTH

Before bone broth was cool, I would drink cups of bullion as tea. Now food trucks devoted to bone broth sling hot soup in the city streets. that bullion-drinking behavior seems shabby and I've had to step up my game.     Heres what I do: 1. I roast my bones (pork, lamb, or beef) for 45 minutes in a 400F oven 1.5 (chicken I don't roast-- the bones are too fragile. You can take THIS opportunity to learn from my mistakes--  if you roast chicken with a lemon in the cavity and are also a lazy person who throws...
