pBroccoli Salad. I know this isn#8217;t quite something you#8217;d think of for the middle of January, but I got it stuck in my head, and had to make it. So there#8217;s that. My version has a few twists in it but still reminds you of that classic Broccoli Salad that your aunt or somebody would bring over to the summer potluck!/p
pI don#8217;t care for raisins. Like not one bit, so I subbed in organic dried goji berries and still achieved that little hint of sweetness in the dish. Raw red onions are another one of those things I just can#8217;t do. Luckily I do like raw shallots, so that was a perfect substitution in this recipe and I opted to […]

It#8217;s hard not to when thousands of new studies are published every day and thousands of readers deliver the best ones to my inbox. And while I enjoy thumbing through the links simply for curiosity#8217;s sake, they can also seed new ideas that lead to research rabbit holes and full-fledged posts. It#8217;s probably the favorite part of my day: research and synthesis and the gestation of future blogs. The hard part is collecting, collating, and then transcribing the ideas swirling around inside my brain into readable prose and hopefully getting an article out of it that I can share with you./p

Our Primal Fear of Dying

pimg class=”alignright size-full wp-image-54499″ src=”http://cdn.marksdailyapple.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/cemetery.jpg” alt=”Cemetery” width=”320″ height=”213″ /Many, if not most of us, have experienced at least one moment when we truly thought we were going to die. Maybe it was a plane ride from hell. Or a seemingly final diagnosis. A grim combat situation #8211; or many.… A frightening near miss on the highway. A serious assault.

From smartphones (iPhone or Android?), diets (Primal or Paleo or vegan?), cars (electric or gasoline, SUV or sedan?), health plans (PPO, HMO, or health savings account?), to entertainment (TV or Twitter or YouTube or Xbox or Netflix), we#8217;ve never had more options from which to choose.

Slow Baked BLT Frittata

pimg class=”alignright wp-image-54403 size-full” src=”http://cdn.marksdailyapple.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/BLT-Frittata.jpg” alt=”BLT Frittata” width=”320″ height=”212″ /A frittata is a meal suitable for any time of day. Served alone for breakfast or with a side salad for lunch or dinner, it’s a step up from scrambled eggs and less fussy than an omelet./p
pFrittatas are generally shoved under the broiler for quick cooking and therein lies the only problem with a frittata. Too often, the a title=”Guide to Perfect Eggs” href=”http://www.marksdailyapple.com/guide-perfect-eggs/#axzz3Sse4CXFu”eggs/a are dry and bland. But if you give a frittata a little more time, letting it bake slowly in low heat, the eggs are soft and custardy, but still firm enough to slice. It’s a welcome improvement./p

pThis slow baked BLT frittata – or more accurately BST frittata since healthy spinach takes the place of iceberg lettuce – is a favorite frittata both for flavor and texture. It’s a delicious way to get a healthy dose of […]
