How to Make Healthy Korean Pancakes

Korean pancakes, called bin dae duk, are unique in that they aren't made with flour. Traditionally, bin dae duk includes small amounts of pork, but in the interest of healthy eating, this version is 100% plant-based - nothing but hearty beans, fresh vegetables, and a small amount of rice.

How to Make Korean-Style Steamed Eggs

My mom recently told me that this is the only Korean recipe that my older sister has ever asked her for. Quite understandable, as you won't find a lighter or fluffier egg dish anywhere.

Cactus Pears, Cactus Fruit, Prickly Pears

Prickly pears, also known as cactus pears or cactus fruit, are well worth adding to your diet whenever you can find them.

Though this recipe for Quinoa Chocolate Chunk Cookies includes some refined ingredients like sugar, seeing as we had never run across a quinoa-filled cookie, Kristen whipped it up for all to see with the understanding that those who prefer all-natural ingredients can use substitutes for sugar, butter, etc. So please, no finger-pointing comments from the food police on this one. Thanks, and enjoy. - Ben Kim

 

How To Enhance Your Health With Juices And Juice Fasting

I'm often asked to name one thing that can be done right away to get healthier. With respect to food choices, the best suggestion I have is to begin drinking freshly pressed vegetable juices.
