This Week in History at Casual Kitchen:
Applying the 80/20 Rule to Diet, Food and Cooking (April 2008)
One of my most powerful posts, where I help readers apply 80/20 thinking across almost every aspect of food. It's quite frankly shocking at times how a couple of seemingly small habit changes can yield substantial results in your life.
Your Heart is Only Good for So Many Beats (April 2008)
Looking back, I should have been more clear with readers that this post was facetious.
How to Fight Back Against Overpriced Cereal (April 2009)
Part 2 of my anti-branded boxed cereal screed. In this post you'll see how stealth price hikes, unpronounceable ingredients and aggressive marketing (especially to children) covertly encourage us to build unhealthy consumption and eating habits. Fight back.
Li Hing Mui (April 2009)
You'd never guess that something that tastes so nasty the first time you try it could become such an addictive snack.
Mujadarrah: Vegetarian Comfort Food From the Middle East (April 2010)
An easily modifiable, flexible, and hilariously cheap recipe that you can make in under 30 minutes. And yet people still try to convince me that eating healthy is too expensive.
Who Really Holds the Power in Our Food Industry? (April 2010)
It doesn't take all that much to start genuinely useful and healthy food trends. Why you as a food blog reader--and all of us out there writing food blogs--have an obligation to help spread good food ideas.
