How Low-Carb Works

First and foremost, I am a chef, not a doctor, nutritionist, or scientist. My experiments are with ingredients, not test tubes. You wouldn’t want a doctor writing recipes (many have), but you should consult a doctor or nutritionist before making changes to the way you eat. You should also understand that my explanation of how [...]

Motivation & Inspiration

An Essential Change Fifteen years ago, the scene around the Stella family dinner table looked bleak. There was usually a stack of pizza boxes.

Low Carb on a Budget

There’s no denying that food prices are going up, up and up.  In the short term, it’s devastating many a grocery budget.  In the long term, there’s no telling the impact this can have on our overall health.  More and more families are being pushed into low priced and high calorie convenience (junk) food just [...]

The Good, the Bad and the Carbohydrate

Growing up in an Italian family, my life from the earliest age revolved around food - especially at the holidays! My Mom was a world class home chef who inspired me to become a chef myself.
