  • Noshing on

    In the frying pan, nearly ready to serve. I made this one with carrots, curry spices, chile-garlic paste, allspice and cinnamon, and a little vinegar and lemon for acidity.

    I may post affiliate links to books and movies that I personally review and recommend. Currently I favor Alibris and Vroman's, our terrific and venerable (now past the century mark!) independent bookstore in Pasadena. Or go to your local library--and make sure to support them with actual donations, not just overdue fines (ahem!), because your state probably has cut their budget and hours. Again.

    SlowFoodFast sometimes addresses general public health topics related to nutrition, heart disease, blood pressure, and diabetes. Because this is a blog with a personal point of view, my health and food politics entries often include my opinions on the trends I see, and I try to be as blatant as possible about that. None of these articles should be construed as specific medical advice for an individual case. I do try to keep to findings from well-vetted research sources and large, well-controlled studies, and I try not to sensationalize the science (though if they actually come up with a real cure for Type I diabetes in the next couple of years, I'm gonna be dancing in the streets with a hat that would put Carmen Miranda to shame. Consider yourself warned).

Resolution 18–eat more fun vegetables

Raw fennel bulb

I dream of going, but this is for now

Fennel’s in season here and makes a great crunchy salad vegetable. Or just a great raw vegetable for noshing, period.

  1. Holy cow, Debbie, where have you been all my (adult) life?

    I need to cook low-salt, no-sugar, more veggies, AND in the microwave. And even though I’m a WASP, I’m always mistaken for Jewish (which my stomach is fine with!).

    Your blog is a mitzvah.

    • Thanks for the compliment–although a mitzvah is literally a commandment, which is much more credit than almost anything I’ve posted on Slow Food Fast deserves. Wouldn’t want the world to think any of this was mandatory at the Thou Shalt (or Shalt Not) level (unless I can figure out a foolproof way to eat fantastically well for very little and eliminate the need for dishwashing altogether–wouldn’t that be a neat trick? I could go for making up a commandment like that.) In the more serious matter of eats, I think it’s fine to be mistaken for Jewish when it comes to food–the main rule is, we like it! (of course, we also like to kvetch afterwards, when the heartburn kicks in–this isn’t the part you meant, was it?)
