Three Tips to Spring Clean Your Diet

March 14th, 2019

The spring equinox (also called the March equinox or vernal equinox) falls on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at 5:58 P.M. EST. This event marks the astronomical first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.  Fun fact: the word equinox comes from the Latin meaning “equal night,” referring to the fact that the length of the day and night are nearly equal in most parts of the world. Since spring is almost here for most of us, it’s a great time to think about ways to spruce up our eating habits a bit.  Here are three ways to refine your diet this spring. Make small edits to your diet.  We all... Read More

There are many ways to experience one of the preeminent cities in the world, Denver, Colorado. A young, active, and diverse community has built a culture like no other, and the payoffs come in many different forms. If you’re like me, one of your favorite new aspects of living in Denver is the world-class food. While not historically known as a culinary mecca, Denver is showing that an old city can learn new tricks! Actually, in 2017, Zagat rated Denver the 4th most exciting food city in the Nation! That said, what better way to see the city then by a food tour? Enter Delicious Denver Food Tours;... Read More

Facts About Food That Can Influence Your Diet

January 30th, 2019

Did you know that a green (unripe) banana confers its own unique health benefits? Green bananas are a good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and contain resistant starch which cannot be broken down by enzymes in your digestive system and, therefore, acts more like fiber. Including foods high in resistant starch in your diet may reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease by aiding in blood sugar control and lowering blood cholesterol levels. Bananas have higher levels of antioxidants as they ripen. Fully ripened bananas produce a substance called Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF). TNF regulates... Read More

To Grinch or not to Grinch: December 2018

December 5th, 2018

    AHHH DECEMBER … “Once you’ve seen one Christmas parade, you’ve kind of seen them all” I thought to myself as I replied to a friend’s invitation via text. Fast forward 2018 — Although I still get the occasional “let’s go snowboarding” text, I often spend my winters participating in the human representation of hibernation. I don’t recall the exact chain of events that led me to this point but, in retrospect, with the exception of my first couple tourist-y years, I can see exactly how this became second nature. Factor 0 familial influences expecting me to be at the next... Read More

How to add Hemp to Your Thanksgiving

November 17th, 2018

Thanksgiving is next week and there are several of us who will be shopping for foods this weekend, and all next week, leading up to the big day! We all know the classic casseroles, stuffings, and desserts, but have you considered adding hemp foods to your menu? For some, hemp foods can be new to cook with, and there isn’t a lot of direction for how to add hemp to your Thanksgiving, until now! Hemp foods are gaining popularity, and becoming much easier to find in stores. Hempsgiving was recently held in Denver, where every item on the menu featured some sort of hemp. The event was such a success,... Read More

Hello and Welcome – Meet Cailean: A Local to Take You Behind the Scenes of Restaurants Across the State

Let’s paint a picture; when we sit and think about the culinary industry it is almost natural to imagine a man with a thick British accent screaming at the cooks about everything they are doing wrong, tearing everyone down piece by piece. Is that what really happens though? In some cases, yes, but not in every single kitchen around the world, let alone just here in Colorado. Most of the Chefs I have met here in Colorado are, honestly, downright mellow; sure, it is natural to have a bad day here and there where you lash out at everyone and everything around you, but it’s not a constant occurrence.... Read More

3 Reasons to Read Food Labels 

September 20th, 2018

Recently, I had dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant.  Usually I get a meal and don’t have room for the sopapilla that comes with it, but this time I took the sopapilla home to eat later. When I was ready to eat it, I was surprised to see that the “honey” for the sopapilla was not honey at all. It was fake honey made with corn syrup. I happened to have some locally source honey at home and used that instead of the faux honey. This is just one of the reasons it’s important to read labels. If you’re trying to change your life by eating fewer processed foods, less sugar, or any number... Read More

When We Eat Matters

August 9th, 2018

We are busy! Competing for our time is a constant stream of notifications, emails, and texts, endless errands, work and family. Matching the hectic pace of living means that we might have bad eating habits. A growing body of research suggests that our bodies function optimally when we align our eating patterns with our circadian rhythms, the internal 24-hour cycles that tell our bodies when to wake up, when to eat, when to fall asleep. Studies show that chronically disrupting this rhythm — by eating late meals or nibbling on midnight snacks, for example — could be a recipe for weight gain and... Read More
