I met my friend Mary on the very first day of college. She is one of the smartest, funniest people I know. A savvy foodie, she and I spent some good times cooking and eating our way through New York City in our younger days.
Yesterday, she emailed me and asked for, “that cookie recipe with almond flour and butter.” Well, that would cover a couple dozen of my recipes. After a bit of email back and forth, we narrowed it down to one of the recipes I had concocted a few years ago, when I still lived in New York. Here it is, Mary.

Question by Joshua: What’s the best way to learn about healthy eating?
Healthy eating is somewhat of a mystery to me because I have never really done it and I would just like to learn so that I can eat healthy and cut some pounds
Answer by Valentine
Simplify. Instead of being overly concerned with counting calories or measuring portion sizes, think of your diet in terms of color, variety, and freshness. This way it should be easier to make healthy choices. Focus on finding foods you love and easy recipes that incorporate a few fresh ingredients. Gradually, your diet will become healthier and more delicious.
Start slow and make changes to your eating habits over time. Trying to make your diet healthy overnight isn’t realistic or smart. Changing everything at once usually leads to cheating or giving up on your new eating plan. Make small steps, like adding a salad (full of different color vegetables) to your diet once a day or switching from butter to olive oil when cooking. As your small changes become habit, you can continue to add more healthy choices to your diet.

Question by collegejoey: Good recipes when cooking for one?
I’m a college student, and live by myself. I’m a good cook, but it’s just so hard to cook portions for one. I hate to waste food so I end up rarely cooking anything. I want to be healthy and eating out and fast food just isn’t the way to do it. So I want to start cooking for myself again. Does anyone know any recipes that are good for one person, doesn’t have to be too quick and easy. Thanks!
