Frequently Asked Questions

You’re always talking about superfoods. What IS a superfood anyway?

I define superfoods as the most nutrient-dense, benefit-rich foods found in nature … foods that have the most amount of micronutrients per calorie. I’m not interested in semantics, and see “superfoods” as a general philosophy of eating: an ongoing adventure to acquire the very best foods available (and transform them into delicious cuisine).

What are the calorie contents and nutrition values of the recipes you post?

When I bring foods into my kitchen, I don’t track calories, I collect nutrients. I also aim to make recipes that are loosely “balanced” in macro nutrients as well (fats, protein, and carbohydrates). If you’re keeping track, I recommend using one of the free online counters like FitDay.com to find out the quantity of nutrients in the recipes, and then divide your results by the number of servings.

Are you a nutritionist or dietitian?

No. Nor a doctor. I am simply a chef who loves working with the best foods I can get my hands on, and I find it rewarding to share the results of my research. I appreciate the work that goes on in these fields, but for the average person I also believe one should not have to get a degree in health to understand how to eat well.

Can I repost your recipes and photos on my blog?

If you are a blog owner, you are welcome to repost any posted recipes as long as you clearly link back to the webpage from which you took the recipe and credit it to this site. Thank you!

    Hi! I am having a brunch. I want to serve crepes with fruit filling, but I am having a hard time finding a good recipe for the filling. If dark chocolate could somehow be incorporated that would be awesome. Do you have any ideas?

  22. Lathrop

    …would the acai berry jam work?

  23. Marni Wasserman
