I love the harvest that autumn brings to us. It's an invigorating time of renewal and bounty in nature and with Rosh Hashanah on our heels, it's a time for setting intentions for a sweet, bountiful year. My whole family including the gluttons for gluten look forward to eating my gluten free adaptations. I hope to make your year a little sweeter with a couple of fresh ideas for those baskets of harvested apples.

This dip-dish of tomatoes and roasted bell peppers seasoned with garlic, is traditionally served cold alongside other Israeli appetizers, and is actually considered a salad. Although I would use that term very loosely, as the finished dish is more of a salsa, and warm pieces of bread or pita are the ideal vessel for transferring the ruby substance to the mouth. It's long cooking time allows the juices to cook way down, offering up a rich, almost sticky, sweet finish.

It's not sexy or glamorous, but it works. Eat a normal portion once in a while and it not only satisfies your desire for pasta with creamy sauce (which is a normal part of living) but it also has the super powers of staving off binges and feelings of deprivation from good food.

You Can Give In To Your Carb Cravings And Lose Weight, Too

Weight loss experts will tell you that weight loss is 75 per cent what you eat and 25 per cent what you do. Resisting that rice pudding becomes even more important when you know that. You can drop the obvious treats like cinnamon buns, but do you have to give up ALL warm yummies to stay on track? I don't think so.

Anyway, I recently had the opportunity to feed a group of yogis visiting from Brooklyn, NY. They were a fascinatingly fabulous bunch, and I am not too humble to say that I think I turned a few of them vegetarian (loving, anyway) while they were here. At lunch one day, I decided to toss this green-bomb their way, to great reviews.

I began experimenting with some classic nutrient-packed ingredients and then did something I rarely do: I added a protein powder to the mix. The key was to make a fibre-rich, protein-rich and fat-rich recipe: the trifecta of a power snack. And so, I landed at a chocolate dipped, vanilla macaroon.

Coming from India, I discovered a new love of eating turkey and all the classic sides that go with it, whether it's candied yams, buttermilk biscuits or silky soft mashed potatoes. But when it comes to appetizers, instead of the usual chips, cheese plates or nuts, I plan to shake things up a bit this year with a few classic Indian appetizers.

I've always loved kettle corn: popcorn with the perfect combination of salty and sweet! Popcorn, after all, is a whole grain -- and though it gets a bad reputation at the movie theaters, homemade popcorn can be a light, healthy and delicious snack that satisfies those munchies. I decided to add a holiday twist to this batch of kettle corn by sprinkling it with a combination of spices that give it a nice warm gingerbread taste. You can also add other ingredients like a drizzle of chocolate, dried fruit, and shredded coconut.
