While you might think that fried rice is strictly a Chinese dish, I like to think of it as more of a stir-fried dish that you can add whatever you’d like to. In fact, fried rice is never made the same way twice in my house, since I throw in whatever leftover ingredients or tidbits I have on hand. And to prove just how adaptable this dish is, it can even be given a spicy Creole-inspired twist. We’re doing it jambalaya-style!

Spoon, peeler, or Microplane — no matter how you decide to peel your ginger, most of the time the peels end up in the wastebasket. Yes, they’re tough and fibrous, but they’re also absolutely packed with flavor. It’s time to go whole ginger and hold onto those peels.

It’s that time of year when even a quick stop at the drug store becomes a full-on romantic assault. Who ever thought teddy bears, candy, and chocolate could inspire so much angst? For singles, whether you just got out of a relationship last week or haven’t had a date since you listened to CDs on your Discman, this can be a tricky holiday to navigate.

But flying solo on Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a soul-crushing experience. In fact, if you tweak your perspective and emphasize the more uplifting aspects of the holiday, it can be downright fun. The key is to take the focus off what you don’t have and celebrate what you do.

The number of websites out there dedicated to finding you a lover or partner is pretty astounding. There’s Tinder and Match, which cast a wide net, but then there are websites that are more focused on a specific interest or lifestyle. Farmers can find like-minded farmers for a roll in the hay. Gluten-free? Yes, a website for gluten-free singles actually exists.

But I think there’s something lacking for the home cook on today’s dating websites. How do you know if someone will be OK washing all your dishes? How do you know if someone will eat that spicy dish you love making? Here are five dating websites for cooks that I’m pretty sure need to exist immediately. Silicon Valley, I’m looking at you.

In the colder months, when seasonal produce is scarce, it can feel like a challenge to get your daily dose of vegetables — especially your greens. But luckily, frozen vegetables can fill that void.

Frozen veggies are the best option after fresh because they are generally frozen at their seasonal peak. And unlike canned vegetables, they don’t have a lot of additional salt. Here are 17 ways to get some greens back on your plate.

It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!

real_life_stories_stories-1-2The first time I heard about Mark’s Daily Apple was the summer before I started my freshman year of college. My grandma loves health and had been watching the Diabetes Summit. She told two of my sisters, Kristen and Hannah, about Mark. They had fallen in love with all things Primal and when they told me about their new discovery, I completely dismissed it. I didn’t want to hear about it or even believe it because I was living in the complete opposite way. I wouldn’t touch a vegetable if you paid me and bread was my main food source. Then, I went to college and had a wake-up call.

In college, I realized that I needed to change my diet. I was living off of sandwiches and fried foods at every meal. I wasn’t putting good fuel into my body and for the first time I actually wanted to change. I was now at a point in my life where I had some freedom and was responsible for myself. I no longer had my family to watch over my every move. With this new freedom, I wanted to make sure I took responsibility for all aspects of my life.

I called my sisters and asked them for the name of the person they were always talking about, and they directed me to Mark’s Daily Apple. I read many of the posts and wanted to know more about this lifestyle. I ordered The Primal Blueprint and had a very easy transition to eating healthy. Instead of sandwiches, I started eating lots of eggs, salads, and meat. For snacks, I ate trail mix consisting of almonds, pecans, dried cherries, coconut or apples, and almond butter. I didn’t miss the bread I had survived on for years or even have a tough time eating vegetables because I was now educated. I knew how much good I was doing for my body by cutting out the crap and fueling my body with delicious and nutritious foods. My body was also grateful for the change. I felt so much happier and healthier. I’m not sure if it was mental or not, but I truly felt 100 times better.

The very first week I was home from school for summer break, I decided to try out CrossFit. I learned from The Primal Blueprint how good functional training is, so I thought I would give it a try. I was hesitant at first but after my first WOD, I fell in love with it. Before finding CrossFit, I had been following conventional wisdom and had been focusing on one group of muscles to target each workout, instead of working my whole body. When I would work out, I wouldn’t even sweat and I didn’t have any fun. Now, I sweat profusely and I love every second of it! I actually look forward to working out and would recommend CrossFit to everyone.

collinThe transition from my unhealthy lifestyle to a primal lifestyle was so smooth because I had a strong support group: my family. It was easy to change because they were already practicing this healthy lifestyle. My family is all on board the primal train, which makes this lifestyle effortless. When I am home, my mom cooks the most healthy and delicious meals. She prepares all of these meals using fresh, organic ingredients. During the summer, we even get to grow our own vegetables from the garden my dad takes care of. Every day, we get to eat fresh salads with dressing my mom makes with herbs from our garden. It is hard to miss the junk food when you are eating foods that your taste buds and your body are thankful for.

If you are struggling in making the transition to the primal lifestyle, I would recommend finding others that are also or have already made the transition to this type of lifestyle. My family keeps each other motivated by talking about health and sending each other articles we find on the topic. We look out for each other and keep each other in line and make health a family endeavor. If you have someone to join you on your health journey, you will be much more successful and happy.

What would you do with just a barbell, yourself, and the endless expanse of Arizona desert?

For a number of years, when I lived in an apartment in Arizona, I trained with a barbell and some weight plates out in the desert. I’d fit the barbell and plates into my vehicle any way I could. Training with a large variety of implements has always been my forte, but it doesn’t mean I can’t hang with a barbell.
