Yesterday we shared decor ideas for a simple and elegant July 4th BBQ, which means we’re onto the best part: the menu. Rip & Tan’s In The Veggie Kitchen series focuses on healthful, veggie-centric meals, so it was fun to come up with recipes for a summer BBQ since it’s traditionally centered on meat and heavier […]
July 4th weekend is a great time to get outdoors and spend time with family and a BBQ is the perfect way to feed guests without taking away from the relaxation. But not all BBQs need to involve hot dogs, hamburgers, and coleslaw. For our latest installment of In the Veggie Kitchen I got together with […]
I have developed a healthy obsession with mushrooms—both the incredibly powerful medicinal types like reishi, and those that I roast or sauté for flavorful vegetarian meals. Elissa Goodman is one food expert who has helped encourage this practice, with her great knowledge and healing Inner Peace Tonic. My good friend Pamela Salzman, also a culinary talent, […]
As a non–coffee drinker, matcha is a big part of my daily routine. To be honest, I’m fairly obsessed with this specially grown and processed form of green tea.

This past summer, after reading about its many benefits, I got really into sauerkraut – as in, couldn’t get enough. This slight obsession was only intensified when I met with Elissa Goodman, one of LA’s premier cleanse experts and Holistic Nutritionists. She reminded me how important it is to have fermented foods as part of our daily routine, both for digestion and otherwise, and even suggested including them – in some form – with every meal.
