How do I substitute an egg?

I love eggs… I eat them scrambled with toast and avocado, make omelets with them for before or after a workout and add them to my breakfast cake. Yum! I prefer to buy them from a local farmer, but if I buy them in the supermarket, I always choose bio-dynamic (Demeter) eggs. When I’m in New York, I buy them from... Read more

Imperfections on social media

When I read this article last week on CNN’s website on the subject of how bad Instagram is terms of the mental health of young people, I was shocked.
