When I wake up on cold mornings in the middle of winter, it's hard to force myself to get out from underneath the warm blankets. Having a hot breakfast helps make the morning bearable.

Having food allergies or special diet needs can be especially challenging this time of year. Sometimes I just want to scream "Can we please have a gathering without food?!" Of course, that's not going to happen and I really do realize that "breaking bread" together can be a wonderful experience.

I think one of the best things about hosting the Thanksgiving feast is having days of leftovers! Of course, I like leftovers; some people don’t. The trick can be taking the leftover ingredients and turning them into a new dish. In this podcast, we talk with nutritionist and natural foods chef Alana Sugar about using up all of that valuable food in new and interesting ways.
