What’s for dinner? TBD is not the best answer.

One of the tenets of Foodtraining is that planning eclipses willpower (can’t use the word trump anymore, for obvious reasons). Oftentimes in sessions, in order to gauge a client’s planning, I’ll ask “what’s for dinner tonight?” It is the first week back, for many...

  In most cases, when people say they don't like a certain food, it's because they haven't had a good version of that food. This is definitely the case with salad. If, in your mind, salad means a pile of ho-hum lettuce with bottled dressing, you haven't had...
