    This is my favorite recipe from Anthony William’s book, Liver Rescue, and it is one of the recipes we have in our  9-Day Detox to Transform Your Life. The combination of hot and crispy “Latkes” (potato pancakes) - without any oil - together with a refreshing salad, is my idea of heaven.  This recipe is easy to make, filling, and loved by children. The saltiness...

  • Sambucus nigra

    We have an elderberry bush, Sambucus nigra, in our Bustan (agricultural garden), which I planted many years ago. Years went by without seeing any berries - lots of flowers, but no berries until something changed, and I’m not quite sure what. Maybe the bush needed to mature a bit, and maybe my bees simply worked their magic. Either way, in the last few years I have had such success in...

The ingredients in these crackers have been specifically...

  • The importance and benefits of leafy greens

    All leafy greens – lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, watercress... - are so much more than they seem. Often we believe that leafy greens are just roughage and difficult to digest. This is not true. Leafy greens are actually almost pre-digested foods, that “scrub and massage” the linings of our digestive system as they go down, loosening old yeast, mold and fungus, along with...

    Mango season is truly a holiday. Most of the agricultural produce in Israel is grown locally, which means that when something is out of season - it’s out of season. Lucky for us, there’s a good selection of different mango varieties, which lengthens the growing season considerably. Over the years I’ve learned to preserve the taste of summer by sun-drying mango, creating...

    Banana bread became one of my favorite breakfast foods or afternoon tea snacks from my 2 years travelling Australia. The Aussies love their banana bread and it was available everywhere. I’ve been living in NYC for almost 18 months now and had long forgotten about this delicious bread until recently; discovering an Australian brunch cafe in Greenwich village. It has become my favorite...
