21 Day Sugar Detox, Day 20: A special guest post from Simon

Posted by on Dec 15, 2012 in 21 DSD Daily Eats | 2 comments

Dear Sugar, It’s hard for me to say this, but we are done! At least for another day. It’s not me it’s you. I know we’ve been together for a long time and have had a lot of great fun together. Like that time I went to Santa Cruz beach boardwalk and you were waiting for me in the form of a Churo. Your crisp sweetness tempted me like Cindy Crawford to a 13 year old boy. Am I dating myself? Whatever she’s still hot! To be honest I’ve met someone else…Splenda. Just kidding, just making sure you all are paying attention. I ‘d sooner wax Robin...

21 Day Sugar Detox, Days 16 & 17: I’m back. I wasn’t hiding in the guest room eating Snickers bars.

Day 16 HEADACHE. More stuff happened, good stuff. But the headache was the reason for no blogging. Here’s what happened: Alarm went off way before I was ready to get up (boo). Not enough sleep (blerg). Coffee (yay!). Drive (meh). Meeting (good!). Tea (Yum!). Grocery shopping (Meh). Home (yay!). Breakfast (woo-hoo!). But look how freaking cute she is. The headache started off as a not-enough-sleep headache, more of a brain fog than a true headache. It reminded me a lot of how I used to feel almost all the time; lethargic, brain fog, achy neck, general blah. I don’t feel this way...

21 Day Sugar Detox, Day 11: aaaaaaaand there’s the wall.

In hindsight, I should have probably eaten a bit more than this today: Before 4:30 pm, when I finally got home after running around doing errands and meeting with people. Before you yell at me… Okay fine. I’m completely deserving of a good talkin’ to. I ate this silly breakfast (the first fruit I’ve had during the sugar detox, by the way) thinking that I would be getting lunch while out doing errands. It didn’t happen. I did, however, have a lovely cup of tea with my friend who lives in Marin with a pretty nice view of Mt Tam: And then, back in San Francisco, I...

21 Day Sugar Detox, Day 6: It’s my job to cheat.

Posted by on Dec 1, 2012 in 21 DSD Daily Eats | 4 comments

Here’s the thing: I will never really be able to do a detox like this without cheating a little. Not because I want to, but because my job is to cook food, and not for people on a sugar detox. I don’t cook from recipes; I taste and adjust. This is one of the two reasons that my catering company is 100% gluten-free. The other is that there is a definite need for it. The goal for 2013 is to be so busy with paleo catering that I don’t have time for any other kind. But until that happens, I’m going to be making hummus from time to time. It could be worse, really-...

Fallon Hills Ranch Dinner

Posted by on Sep 20, 2012 in Dinner | 1 comment

This past Sunday, I was one of the fortunate folks who attended a gorgeous dinner at Fallon Hills Ranch. I’ve been getting meat and eggs from them for about 2 years now, and was excited to visit the place where it all comes from. After a scenic drive on a beautiful day, we arrived at the ranch.  Wandering around, we met Honey the goat. She was the only goat in a giant flock of recently sheared sheep. When we walked up to the fence, the sheep took off, but honey came running up to us and proceeded to make goat sounds, which never cease to crack me up. I have to admit: I thought about...
