    June 19, 2013 | 1:06 pm

    Juicing is incredibly popular right now, and everyone wants to know if they should jump on the bandwagon. But it’s not a quick answer to weight loss, and there is not a one-size-fits-all answer. These days people everywhere are juicing to lose weight, cleanse, and consume more...

  • What is a Mediterranean Diet?

    By Hava Volterra

    May 9, 2013 | 6:43 am

    As someone that grew up in the Middle East, and counts herself as somewhat of an expert on Mediterranean cuisine, I’m at once thrilled, bemused, and cynical at the sudden popularity of the Mediterranean diet in health circles, and find it necessary to weigh in on the basic...

  • Vigor Trigger: Asparagus

    By Elana Horwich

    March 15, 2013 | 9:00 am

    Asparagus is in season!

    Wondering why it has a unique affect on your potty? Me too. I don’t know why. But it does:

    • strengthen and stimulate kidney function.
    • have an abundance of Vitamin K which helps your blood to clot normally.
    • offer itself as a natural weight...
  • At the New Year, let’s give animals a new Jewish chance

    August 14, 2012 | 10:34 am

    Shortly after I became a vegan, around 20 years ago, I ordered my first “vegan option” at a Jewish organizational dinner.

    It arrived: a plateful of raw celery and carrot sticks arranged around a cup of something ranch dressing-ish that probably wasn’t even vegan.

    Since then,...

  • EU lawmakers back open markets for Palestinian goods

    August 31, 2011 | 3:45 pm

    The EU moved closer to a trade deal with the Palestinian Authority on Wednesday after unanimous backing from European lawmakers to fully open markets to farm and fish products from the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

    The 27-0 vote by the European Parliament’s international trade committee...

  • Market fresh soups

    By Judy Zeidler

    February 15, 2011 | 10:36 am

    Fresh ingredients for a soup are a chef’s dream, and the best place to find them is at your local farmers market — fresh fennel, squash, mushrooms, ripe tomatoes of all shapes as well as root vegetables.

    Our first experience with open-air markets was on a trip to Italy in the...

  • Dig, plant, grow, give—sharing the bounty of food

    By Rachel Heller

    November 19, 2008 | 12:42 am

    If there's one thing Gabe Goldman wishes more Angelenos would do next spring, it's get their hands dirty.

    The American Jewish University (AJU) professor and director of experiential education is signing up students, synagogues and anyone else with a piece of land and a green thumb...

  • Buying local produce adds spice to holiday dishes

    September 18, 2008 | 2:43 am

    As an avid farmers' market shopper, I welcome the holiday season by noting what's at the market, rather than by turning the page of my calendar. The High Holy Days are a time of endings and beginnings, and nowhere in my everyday life is this more apparent than when I visit my local...
  • Introducing God’s best tasting tomato

    By The Web Guy

    June 17, 2008 | 10:45 pm

    God typically releases some of his strongest new entries in the delicious fruit and veggie category every year around this time—including the best tasting tomato you can buy.

    This tomato—found in your local market wherever ‘heirloom tomatoes’ are sold—is the Purple Cherokee or Cherokee Purple Tomato.

    Look for it. Smell it.  Buy it.  Eat it.

    I prefer to eat it out of hand with just a sprinkling of kosher salt.

    Mmmmmm.

    Next—God’s best fruit.

  • Atoning for the sin of rushing dinner to get to Kol Nidre

    By Linda Morel

    September 28, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    I consider Yom Kippur eve the sandwich holiday. Not because I would ever serve my family and friends sandwiches before going to synagogue on the eve of a solemn fast. I see the start of Yom Kippur this way, because it's sandwiched between two days of Rosh Hashanah celebrations and...
  • Mark the New Year with late summer harvest menu

    By Judy Zeidler

    September 14, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A recent trip to Italy made me aware of the wonderful possibilities of growing your own lush, flavorful garden-fresh food. The villa where we stayed was entirely self-sufficient, with magnificent varieties of produce, eggs gathered from the hen house and the proprietors even making...
  • You Are What You Eat

    By Howard Nemetz

    January 6, 2005 | 7:00 pm

     

    I am a vegetarian. I know there was a big controversy brewing over kosher meat, but I'm not sure what the Jewish position

    on vegetarianism is. I suppose as long as the vegetables are pulled from the ground in a quick and humane manner, no one can object too strenuously to it. I...
