Just because the warm days have left us does not mean that we can’t enjoy summer staples. This is an egg salad with a protein boost and spice kick. I thank my mother for this recipe. She would make this with potatoes and hard boiled eggs and put it in pita bread to make warm sandwiches for lunch. I left out the carbs and added more protein with the chicken. Also, this really is figure friendly because it has no mayo that normally lathers typical egg salads. The cumin adds a comforting warmth and stuffed into a toasted pita pocket, this will be your next go to weeknight dinner this fall !
1lb chicken thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
4 hard boiled eggs chopped
1 medium onion, diced
1 tbsp of whole cumin seeds
1 tbsp of olive oil
1tsp of chilli powder
salt and pepper to taste

A few weeks ago I made an offhand comment in…well, a comment about making these cupcakes as a way to spit in the eye of all my friends with dietary restrictions. This recipe has animal products, refined sugar, alcohol, gluten…pretty much everything you need to cut people out of dessert time except for nut allergies. The comment was born out of break-up aggravation and anger, and I figured channeling that through defiant cupcake baking was more productive than lashing out or boring my friends. Also, it was my sister-in-law’s early birthday celebration the same weekend and she loves these, so win win! In fact, I first made these when we went bridesmaids’ dress shopping for her wedding two years ago. Cupcakes + prewedding diets = still totally delicious.

Cassava or Yucca to the natives:
Lorianna De Giorgio (Toronto Star) writes that “Cassava, a starchy root, has fed some of the poorest nations for centuries” and has proven to be highly resistant to adversity. See excerpts here.
Hundreds of millions of people in Africa depend on it, as do hundreds of millions more in Asia and Latin America. According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, cassava accounts for a third of Africans’ total caloric intake. It may soon become even more important: New research suggests it is ideally suited to withstand drought and climate change.
‘Rambo’ of food
Andy Jarvis of the Colombia-based non-profit International Center for Tropical Agriculture, says cassava could be the answer to climate change adaptation in Africa, because cassava is “often the food crop that continues to provide food in periods of the year when other food sources are not available.” Its other selling point? It’s incredibly…
