When the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans were released, they were met with mixed reactions. We're excited to share our advisor Dr. David Katz's response to the report:
I won't mince words: in my opinion, the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, are a national embarrassment. They are a betrayal of the diligent work of nutrition scientists, and a willful sacrifice of public health on the altar of profit for well-organized special interests. This is a sad day for nutrition policy in America. It is a sad day for public health. It is a day of shame. I know, I should tell you what I really think. Maybe next time.

There's a mere 42 calories and 10 grams of carbohydrate per cup of cooked squash compared to 221 calories and 43 grams of carbs per cup of cooked pasta.

My first cooking class was with my mom at Lan’s Chinese Cooking School in Durham, North Carolina, when I was 8 years old. My mom and I were excited to learn how to make authentic Chinese food because my Hong Kong-born dad and I preferred it to all other foods. I was the youngest student to ever enroll and I had to stand on a stepstool to be tall enough to mix the ingredients in the wok. It was here I first kindled my passion for cooking. I also learned that Chinese cooking isn’t difficult as long as you have the right ingredients.
Even though I am now a professionally trained cook, to this day my friends and family request I make the Chinese food I learned to make as a kid. With just a few basic pantry staples, you too can make Chinese dishes that are quick, healthy and crowd-pleasing.
