Michael Pollan is one of my heroes. I've quoted him in many of my columns and been helping him carry the flag for years touting the benefits of eating a whole foods diet. And the benefits are many; a streamlined torso, reduced inflammation, expedited recovery and more energy. In his new book, "Food Rules," he offers 64 ways to eat food. He expands on his advice, Eat food, not too much, mostly plants in a lively way. We know plant that based foods offer the body necessary nutrients in a bio-available form.

Lynn Duvall In our community, the onset of Memorial Day weekend signals a tightly packed schedule of fun. Recipes for quick, easy meals will minimize kitchen time without reducing nutritional values. What could be more appropriate for this weekend than fiesta slaw? Red, yellow and orange bell peppers replace cabbage in today's modern version of the traditional picnic favorite. Give your family's grill master a chance to shine with swordfish or tuna. Both are good sources of protein, vitamin and minerals and have less saturated fat than red meat.

Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall Later today, I'm taking in my computer for repair. I have strong anti-virus security in force, but it didn't protect me from a nasty Web worm. The worm is wiggling through my system. If it keeps going, it will permanently damage the hard drive too. No snickering, please, from you Mac users out there. When both my girls went to college, they left with brand-new Macs, to protect them from these PC horrors. Last week I published some super recipes using moro oranges, the blood orange from Sunkist.

Lynn Duvall Even though my children are no longer small, they still expect to come home before Easter to find dozens of hard-boiled eggs and the familiar decoration supplies ready for their annual egg dye spree. We're not particularly loyal to one brand of egg dye. We have experimented over the years with various types of dye, including tubes of color which I thought might be less messy than the tablets, but in the end the favorite is usually a tablet product from PAAS. Every year PAAS sells more than 10 million dye kits, which Americans use to color almost 180 million eggs.

Dining With Duvall by Lynn Duvall When my daughters were small, I told them that girls were required to wear skirts to school in my day. They were flabbergasted. Not long ago, they both mentioned my dress code stories, claiming that they were struck with horror and awe when they first heard them. They say they cannot imagine how women grew up to be strong and self-confident with no sports teams for girls, playing dodge ball in skirts at recess. They cannot get their minds around the concept, let alone the actual experience.

Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall Even though I've known Thomas Connolly for years, I never realized what a close bond he has with his mom, Kathy, until I visited them at their La Cañada home last week. Newlyweds Kathy and Jack Connolly established their first home in La Cañada. They still live in the same house, where they raised two fine boys, Thomas and his older brother Patrick. Thomas followed in his mom's footsteps, graduating from La Cañada High School in 2000. Patrick graduated from St. Francis High School in 1993.

As the year comes to a close, I thought my readers might appreciate reading this prose poem by Judie Apablaza. Judie sent her poem to family and friends this holiday season in lieu of a greeting card. Since she mentions recipes and cider, I felt it would be appropriate to add a recipe for buttery cider. How's Market, at the corner of Glendale Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard in Glendale, has a big display of Martinelli's sparkling cider with packages of mulling spices for a faster, alternative version of this winter favorite.

Summer. Lazy days. I was walking down Foothill Boulevard with Miss Audrey Hepburn, our black Lab rescue dog from the Pasadena Humane Society. It was a nice evening and a lot of the regulars were out, walking their dogs. Suddenly Miss Hepburn stopped. There in front of us was an old, partly shredded copy of Gourmet, the now-defunct, formerly impeccable revista of foodie technique. Miss Hepburn began to paw and sniff at the soiled magazine. Why was she so interested? I looked down.

La Cañada celebrated Zoe Ferraris' novel “Finding Nouf,” a OneCityOneBook pick, in two events this past weekend. A children's event called “The Ships of the Desert” was hosted for children on Saturday at the city library, and a book signing and author interview drew about 130 people to the La Cañada Unified School District Office on Sunday afternoon. Ferraris' novel is a mystery about a young woman's disappearance and is set in present-day Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. While the book is a mystery, much of the story focuses on the tensions between a devout, traditional Muslim male and a bold Muslim female ally who has launched her own investigation into the girl's disappearance.
