LEGENDARY ARCHITECT TO TEACH ONLINE COURSES Celebrated Canadian-born architect Frank Gehry will soon be hosting online classes in the hopes to inspire yet another generation. Known for his unconventional design philosophies, Gehry notes that he feels cities are built “only for economies and not for humanities.” He plans to encourage students to take risks and design for real people. Hosted by online education service Masterclass, the architect’s courses will include his sketches as well as images of his models and completed versions of his works. THE ANTI-DIET Now here’s a diet that will actually make you feel good about yourself. Known as the anti-diet, this new wellness trend is all about making peace with food and not giving it the power to control your life. You can thank larger movements such as body positivity and a push for the inclusivity of all body types for this healthy way to think about food. The anti-diet removes restrictions such as “don’t eat carbs” or “no refined sugar” and alleviates the stress associated with having to obsessively monitor what you eat. Many nutritionists say it’s the best thing you can do for your overall well-being and are confident the majority of people following the anti-diet will choose whole foods over piles of processed junk because, at the end of the day, whole foods are what make you feel good. In fact, food experts believe it’s the unhealthy cycle of dieting that actually leads to binge eating – where you cut out entire food groups, then overindulge to fill a craving, then feel guilty and overcompensate the next day. The anti-diet is believed to be a more holistic approach to eating, one that can be maintained for the long run.

SIMPLE NUT AND SEED BREAD Directions: 1. Ingredients: 1 cup raw almonds 1 cup raw walnuts 1 cup whole flax seeds

Preheat your oven to 350° F.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly with a spatula or spoon. 3. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and pour your mixture into it. Level out the top with your spatula or spoon. 4. Bake at 350° F for 1 hour. Note that this is a very dense bread that won’t leaven. When finished baking, the loaf should sound hollow when tapped. 5. Thinly slice and enjoy.

1 cup raw sunflower seeds 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds 1 cup sesame seeds 5 eggs 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt

Notes: 1. It’s delicious toasted and topped with cheese, pâté, jam or luncheon meats. Try experimenting with different toppings and spreads. 2. You can customize the recipe with your preferred nuts and seeds. Make sure to follow a nut to seed ratio of 2 cups of nuts to 4-5 cups of seeds. 3. This bread will keep in the refrigerator for around a week and freezes well.
