Nourishing is the best part of being a woman and a mother. We feed, listen, cook, teach, work, produce, give life, care, advocate, hug and fight. Nourishing doesn’t preclude women from being seductive, and it shouldn’t stop us from being leaders. Nourishing is a female privilege. That’s not an insult to men, who, by the way I love and appreciate. But nourish is largely the land of females. Nourishing deserves respect like women deserve equal rights. if you’re hungry for more than good intentions, try my mom’s honey and tangerine roasted chicken. It’s a recipe that will keep you happy while satisfying your hunger for food and equality. #RESIST Scroll up to my profile and click on the link to my blog for the recipe of my nourishing tangerine and honey chicken R E S I S T #chicken #nourishing #roastedchicken #tangerine #honey #womenempowerment #womenrights #humanrights #mothers #womensmarchonwashington #womensmarch

I hear microwave cooking on high for 2-3 minutes is the Pop Secret to espionage. I'm a chef, not a spy, I don't care much for microwaves. Unlike our advisor to the president, what I really care for is my health and the health of my family. I also deeply care about cooking nourishing dishes for us and I yearn to satisfy my cravings for clean, light but filling dinners. I choose fish often instead of meat, I always offer crunchy vegetables, good grains and lots of legumes and once in a while, I indulge in the comfort of a bowl of pasta or a thick slice of wholesome, crusty bread; PHO and Ramen amuse me — but spaghetti aglio e olio do it for me. When I spot fresh clams and mussels at the local store I'm quick to snatch them. Clam and mussels are low in fat and low in cholesterol and they are a great source of fish oils like salmon and cod. Frankly, I find them addictive, sort of like potato chips. I cannot resist them. They are really easy and fast to prepare—no worries, a quick steam it's all they need, no risk of wiretapping from appliances. I cook my clams and mussels together with humble white beans, fennel and chorizo. These lovely treasures always turn out deeply satisfying and saucy. The beans are a powerful and a healthy alternative to high fat proteins and contain lots of iron, something women often need; the fennel adds a clean and bright crunch and the chorizo gives an indulgent smoky flavor to this all star-family favorite. #RESIST Scroll up to my profile and click on the link to my blog for the recipe ! . . . . #powerfood #mussels #shellfish #clams #womensmarch #womensmarchonwashington #fennel #recipeoftheday #thefeedfeed #sunshine #chorizo #healthyfood #familydinner #iron #girlpower #notmypresident
I was driving to a meeting when I heard Leonard Lopate, on NPR, declare that advertisers only care about women between 18 and 34. Ladies above 34 are worthless. I love you Leonard, but the hell with that. It's not the 1950's anymore. I'm in full swing with all sorts of life happenings and a decade and a half out of that target. I still shop, cook, spend, dress, exercise, travel, work, take care of my children and nourish my family. Like many of my girlfriends, we kick ass and need to keep our aging bodies healthy, happy and always ready to shake a little booty when necessary. Mushrooms are one of the few natural sources of vitamin D and they promote immune boosting functions by increasing production of antiviral proteins. Some of my favorite mushrooms are Shiitake. They are simply delicious and they taste particularly divine in this, always fool-proof, oven roasted lemon and parsley chicken one-tray recipe. It takes 35 minute in the oven and minimal prepping. Even my children, those little rascals that always poo-pooed mushrooms, after falling from their chairs laughing when they heard the word SHIITAKE, gobbled these ones down! #resist Scroll up to my profile and click on the link to my blog for the yummy recipe @leonardlopate @npr #workingwoman #energyfood #shiitake #marchonwashington #chopped #choppedchampion #sharefood #thefeedfeed #chicken #traydinner #onetraydinner #vitamind #immunesystem #powerfood
