How to Make a Dairy-Free and Cancer-Fighting Cream Sauce

Who doesn't enjoy creamy sauce over noodles and crisply cooked veggies? The problem with dairy-based cream sauces is that they are rich in casein, the animal protein that T. Colin Campbell of The China Study has linked with increased risk of cancer.

How to Get Kids to Eat More Vegetables

We had it easy with our firstborn - he was eating handfuls of lightly braised Shanghai bok choy before he turned 2. So it furrowed our brows some to discover that vegetables were not our second son's thing. We started blending our green food powder in with his smoothies from the time he could sip from a straw, but we were still eager to see him eating substantial portions of freshly cooked green vegetables.

How to Make Your Own Soy Milk

Contrary to popular belief, soy can be a healthy food choice for the masses. In Korea and Japan, most households enjoy soy in many forms daily. The key is knowing how to prepare it for optimal digestion and nutritional benefit.

Plus, when you make your own, you can have an entire pitcher of rich, creamy soy milk for about 20 cents. Read more about How to Make Your Own Soy Milk

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.
