12 Runners Superfoods: Energy - Nutrition. Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall. It will be a sorry day when I turn to my larder and discover that there is not a single tin of fish to be found therein.

But I guess if we continue to empty the seas at the rate we are doing, it may happen. The thing is, the kind of small, oily fish that fit so obligingly in tins and jars are the very species that, if managed properly and fished responsibly, could continue to feed us sustainably well into the future. If however, we continue to vacuum them up by the millions of tonnes, and process more than half of them into animal feed and fertilisers, then they won't be around for long.

By far the most popular canned fish flesh in this country is tuna, of course, though for me it is a fish whose flavour and texture can often be disappointing and whose provenance is riddled with alarming environmental worries. All tuna stocks are under pressure and some are desperately over-exploited. (the best) VEGAN BERRY MUFFINS. Healthy Living Class, Green Drinks, Sweet Eats, and Salads!

And like always, as the guest were arriving, I was behind on everything… I had friends making Peanut Butter Pong Balls(made with almond butter instead), made my dad run to McDonalds to get some ‘samples’ (of no-no’s), and I was busy making sure things were set and ready to go…Oh and repeating in my mind the things I was going to say. I decided to do a display table of ingredients I love that I think everybody should include in their daily eating lifestyle. Each had a little note card with info about the ingredient.

Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government. Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer my idea of a more comforting alternative. Pasta. When life is good, and when life gets crazy, I turn to pasta. And just as it has for years, this one hit the spot.

Guest Bloggers Emma and Henry make homemade Oreos - Sweet Potato Chronicles

The first time I checked it out (on the advice of the always spot on Vit­a­min Daily girls) I real­ized that an hour had dis­ap­peared while I devoured all the envy-making house tours, design fea­tures and food posts. Don't say I didn't warn you! I sent Emma a lit­tle love note (since we've started SPC I find myself doing this more) and we got to email­ing. Even though she's the busiest of bees — a design busi­ness, a web­site, oh, and a son! — she agreed to do a post for us. The moment I saw these two words, Home­made Oreos, I knew I had to give this recipe a try. My trick for bak­ing with a 2 year old is to be pre­pared and use “The Machine”. This recipe con­sists of two parts: the wafers and the icing. Here’s the recipe: Home­made Oreos (Adapted from Retro Desserts, Wayne Brach­man via Smit­ten Kitchen) (My com­ments in brackets!)

Four-Cheese Pasta With Cauliflower: Recipes. Cannellini Bean Stew with Fresh Herbs. Recently, I needed a vegetarian centerpiece for an Italian-themed meal (my own birthday dinner, as a matter of fact!).

Cannellini Bean Stew with Fresh Herbs

Beans might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, but these cannellini beans were special enough to impress all the meat lovers at the table. It all starts with the beans you use. I’m sure regular old store-bought cannellini beans would be fine here, but Rancho Gordo’s amazing Runner Cannellini beans took this dish to a higher level of deliciousness. They’re huge, with a mild, earthy flavor and soft but substantial texture. I wanted to infuse the dish with the flavors of fresh herbs, so I added sage, thyme and rosemary. The dish comes out slightly differently depending on the tomatoes you use. So, how to serve these beans? Preheat the oven to 350. Serves 8.
