    Q: Chia seeds or Flax seeds?
    A: Both are fabulous, but chia is just a little better. Chia packs more fiber, protein, and omega 3′s tan flaxseed. Chia also makes a great thickening agent for soups, sauces and marinades. Use it in place of flour or cornstarch. It’s also great in...

    One of my favorite best childhood foodie memories was sharing the plate of sliced pears and cheese that my mom had waiting for me after a long day at grade school. I so loved the concept of sharing a healthy snack and continued the tradition with my boys. Finding out that not only...

    By Michael Israel

    Fish is one of the most polarizing foods in our diet. Many people have awful memories of growing up in a home where fish night was nightmarish. Prior to the explosion of sushi restaurants in the U.S., many home cooks were under the impression that fish are full of bacteria and...

  • Following the carp — the fish in gefilte — from lake to plate

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    March 29, 2012 | 3:51 pm

    Big fish, cheap fish; sport fish, gefilte fish.

    With apologies to Dr. Seuss, that’s a decent summary of the situation for carp today.

    The fish has its share of devoted fans — some like it dead on a plate, others prefer it alive and tugging on a hook — nevertheless, by and...

    Why does everyone become Irish on St. Patrick’s day?  Even the Jews.  When has it become a good thing for Jews to start drinking?  Have you ever seen Jewish people drink?  No, that’s because most of us can’t hold down our liquor, and its not pretty.

    I am definitely the “drinker” in...

    Is it terrible that I am always tricking my kids into eating or doing something that they don’t want to do?  For example, for the first 8 years of my son’s life, he absolutely LOVED eating fish.  Not just fish, seafood of any kind, he even had calamari a few times.  How that...

    Tonight on my way home from a lecture I ate in a popular Japanese restaurant in West L.A. The chef/owner joined me, and we fell into talking about the state of fish.  This is a man with 30 years experience in the Japanese restaurant business in Los Angeles—sushi, bento, ramen,...

  • But Is It Kosher?

    In September 2003, Whole Foods quietly removed one brand of kosher chicken from its shelves and replaced it with a different brand.

    The switch received little notice -- outside of a Jewish Journal article -- but it caught my eye. A representative for Whole Foods claimed the previous...

    For UCLA geography professor Jared Diamond, the fall of a great civilization can come down to fish.

    "Fish prices have tripled; fish form a significant part of our diet," Diamond told The Journal. "At the rate we're going, most of the world's major fisheries will be gone within a...

  • Piscatorial Compassion

    "Fish is meat," announces Danny, my 9-year-old vegetarian son.

    "Fish is fish," responds Larry, my 50-something pescetarian husband.

    Judaism backs up Larry, classifying fish as pareve, neither dairy nor meat, and telling us that fish first appeared almost 6,000 years ago, on the...
