Ingredients Should Tell A Story




    Good food starts with a story.  Why are you making it? Where did the inspiration come from? The food we make and eat conveys that story.  We pass this story through generations, each adding their own piece, making it theirs while still holding on to the original.  The ingredients for your meal are the foundations of that story.  Perhaps you use roasted red peppers because they remind you of a trip you took to Tuscany or always wanted to.  Maybe you want you use ginger or wasabi as an ode to Asian culture.  Regardless of your reasoning, it's your story.  That story will be passed to your children and their children and so forth and so on, each adding a chapter. It really is a story without end.  Many variations, but an endless family story

    Every tiny morsel of your food will let anyone eating it, including yourself, become aware of the influences you possess. You open yourself up to the criticism of others, allowing them into your world even just for a second or two. This isn't about being a professional chef in a fancy restaurant or a home cook making dinner on a weekday for yourself or family.  That experience of influence is shared throughout the culinary world. You can taste the passion.  You can smell the excitement. You can dine on the story! You have now become part of it.  You can eat at a 5 star restaurant and not know what it takes to make the food you are eating, but you can eat at a local, family run cafe and feel the history, the pain, the love, the community in everything that is served.  


"You can dine on the story!"

So how will you tell yours?

Different Types of Diets Part 1 - Atkins Diet

  What Is The Atkins Diet? The Atkins weight loss diet is based on one simple principle: Your body burns both carbohydrates and fat for calories. If you reduce the amounts of carbohydrates available, it will burn more fat and you will lose weight.     According to Atkins, calories are unimportant. The key to losing weight is to restrict the carbohydrates that you eat and force the body to turn to its stored fat as an energy source. As proof of this, proponents of the Atkins Diet point to the following facts derived from research:     * When the body doesn't have enough carbohydrate, it will use ketenes derived from fat as energy.  * You can eat more food and lose more weight on a low carbohydrate diet than you can on a low fat diet.  * You crave less food when you eat fewer carbohydrates.  * By eating fewer carbohydrates, people tend to eat fewer calories without counting them.  * The greater the difference between fat and carbohydrate, the greater the weight loss.

Lifestyle Dynamic Journey - Franklin Square, NY

Small towns can offer a lot.  Like hidden gems where you least expect them.  Sometimes they are just small towns with nothing to offer.  Franklin Square, NY isn't one of the latter.  I don't say this because I live here, I say it because it is a melting pot of culture and heritage.  So many mixed families have come to call this town their home.  A definite change from the decades ago I once knew.  The more this town changes, the more I like it.  When you bring in new families with new cultures, you bring in new businesses that offer things not seen before.  To some that can be threatening, but to the open minded (or those of mixed decent) it is welcoming and exciting actually.   What is now Franklin Square was near the center of the Hempstead Plains, and used as grazing land, and later farmland, by the first white settlers. The southern portion included oak and dogwood forests. In late 1643, Robert Fordham and John Carman made a treaty with members of the Massapequak, Meric
