Bars are big business so by now you've probably tried most of the ones on the market (and probably a whole bunch that eventually fell by the wayside, too). That's kind of the way we felt about the bar brouhaha, too...until we met R.e.d.d. See, unlike most of the energy bars that come across our desk [...]

...Or at least that's the conclusion Sara Chodosh has come to, in her article, Sorry, Keto fans, you're probably not in ketosis. It's just too hard, she argues in her piece for Popular Science. Unless it's brutal, you're probably not doing it right. The reason for this is the diet's 80 - 90 percent necessary fat [...]

We're lucky to live during a time when we have so many food options. We can go into most grocery stores -- anywhere in the country! -- and cobble together enough ingredients to make an allergen-friendly feast. Speaking personally, we couldn't even say that five years ago, outside of straight-up meat and veg. On the internet, [...]

We've been drinking bone broth for years. Although, truly, if you want to get technical about it, we've been eating it for decades, because we grew up on soups of all sorts, most of them divined -- alchemical-style -- out of a pot full of water, some vegetables, and a big pile of bones. Bone broths [...]

We love protein drinks. We mix collagen protein powder into our coffee to start the day with some skin food and a boost of extra nutrition in the morning. It's our post-workout BFF (best fuel forever). Sometimes we turn to protein drinks instead of reaching for a naughty sweet snack in the late afternoon. Protein drinks [...]

Barely Bread Is Actually A Lot Like The Real Thing

2018-06-28T13:25:26-08:00June 28th, 2018|Clean Eats, Clean Made LA, Nutrition|

We've tried them all. All of those brands of gluten-free breads. Or maybe we should call them "breads." We've tried them and they made us feel sad. Hard, cakey, mealy, bland, crumbly. The different brands each have their own issues, but collectively, they were all a little hard to swallow. It actually took a lot of [...]
