Episode 14 of Edacious – Food Talk for Gluttons.

Real food isn’t processed food. It isn’t created in a lab with flavor chemicals. It doesn’t contain preservatives. It’s tasty, healthful, and doesn’t require a culinary degree to prepare. And yes, it can contain fat and sugar. Kath Younger, a registered dietician, is one of the earliest and most well-known healthy lifestyle bloggers. Since 2007 she has chronicled her daily meals at KathEats.com and for many years, blogged each meal three times a day.

The discipline required for such a feat is astounding to me and I couldn’t wait to talk to her about it, and about how she was able to take a hobby and turn it into a profitable online business. What are her challenges and triumphs? When you’ve been blogging for eight years, and your life changes, how does it affect content? And how do you evolve your content without alienating your readers? Is there a secret junk food she doesn’t include in the blog? And why does she put “junk food” in quotes?

We cover all of that, moving on to small changes you can make to improve your health, and why she believes an “addition” philosophy is better than one of “subtraction”. We gush over our shared love for butterscotch, and spend a ton of time grieving the loss of Eppie’s Santa Fe Salad. We also talk about how we deal with the sometimes vitriolic nature of the Internet, and how advice from Pëma Chödron might help.

What began as a conversation on eating healthy, ended up a therapy session for me on how to exercise more often! There may or may not have been a beer tasting. I wax poetic about Overnight Oats, and how it changed the way I start my day. And I say “insane” a lot. How many times? A prize for someone who can tell me ;) Enjoy! As always, I appreciate your constructive comments and suggestions.

Episode 10 of Edacious – Food Talk for Gluttons.

I’m talking with Gerry Newman of Albemarle Baking Company, and I’m not sure who got more out of this conversation, him or me! I’m an amateur bread baker from way back, no-knead method, but of late my anxiety over fallen dough has kept me from this worthwhile past time. Gerry gave me tips on overcoming this, in addition to regaling me with stories of his apprenticeship, his passion for baking, and his love of Limpa. What is Limpa? You’ll have to listen to find out. Gerry has been at the helm of ABC for almost 20 years, and there’s good reason why you can find his baguettes on almost every restaurant table in town. He’s a fantastic storyteller, a sweet man, and a Charlottesville treasure. Hope you’ll listen. This one is great folks!

New episode up now! Available at Edacious – Food Talk for Gluttons, on iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and your regular podcast outlets. In this episode, meet a woman with a degree in Biology (with a concentration in Molecular Genomics!) who bought a gelato store. Splendora’s Gelato ain’t ice cream. Nor is it frozen yogurt. No dump and mix here. No ice cream dasher which adds air. Gelato is a fantabulously rich, thick, decadent frozen concoction from Italy which makes all the rest look like amateurs.

An awesome conversation touching on subjects like the concept of FOMO as it relates to gelato. What’s FOMO? Look it up. I had to LOL! We also discussed savory gelatos, how owner P.K. Ross creates her unique flavors, what challenges are faced by women-owned businesses today, and beer. Learn the story of the day she signed the papers for Splendora’s. It’s a great one. Is a good palate something you’re born with? Or can it be developed? What’s her most popular flavor? What region of Italy is on her bucket list to travel to someday? Are there some ingredients that just don’t work in gelato because of its cold nature? Who gave her the idea for her popular goat cheese, honey, and fig gelato? Her most surprisingly popular flavor? Listen now to find out!
