Raspberry-Rhubarb-Bar

May 25

Raspberry Rhubarb Goji Bars

These yummy bars came to me in a dream. A fantasy in warm red rhubarb-raspberry filling oozing out of a rich, crumbly cinnamon shortbread, with refreshing, sweet goji berries. They came out just like that! Guilt-free superfood bars, low-carb and luscious. Goji berries are higher in protein than any other fruit,

Strawberry Beet Superfood Smoothie

Today’s smoothie turned out incredibly yummy! I was in the mood for something energizing, super-nourishing, rich, creamy, and anti-oxidant, with a bit of sweetness. Fresh strawberries were calling me, and a few minutes later I was enjoying my delicious shake! Strawberries are high in vitamin C,

Sprouted Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

When I need a hot breakfast, this easy Quinoa Bowl is my go-to favorite! Quinoa is tasty, high in protein, and satisfying. An ancient Incan superfood, Quinoa (KEE-no-ah) is 100% gluten-free, loaded with iron and B-vitamins. Even better, it’s a complete protein, a rare bonus in plants. The Incans call Quinoa

Gluten-free Sugar-free Red Velvet Cupcakes

Quiz: When a delicious cupcake is made with REAL beets, apple, coconut butter, and eggs, does it count as a GOOD food, or is it BAD, BAD, BAD? This luscious deep red color is from beets, never food coloring. In fact, these cupcakes are made with nutritious low-carb, Paleo ingredients that taste fantastic, but won’t cause weight gain.

Which Gluten-Free Brownie is Best?

By Jane Barthelemy. Gluten-free is big business now. Every grocery has a gluten-free aisle filled with tempting treats like gluten-free chips, and gluten-free chocolate cookies. But why do doctors say they expect people to gain weight on a gluten-free diet? Weight gain is associated with carbs and sugars. As I read ingredient labels in the gluten-free aisle, it becomes clear that our food manufactures have swapped out gluten for highly processed refined carbs and sugars. Empty calories. And if you eat them you’ll gain weight for sure. So unfortunately most of these new gluten-free products may defeat your healthy purpose. Enjoy your

My Biggest “Aha!”, Easy Weight Loss

A few years ago, when I was overweight, diagnosed with cancer, chronic fatigue, adrenal failure, digestive collapse, chemical sensitivities, food allergies, and two frozen shoulders, I began to make changes in my diet and lifestyle, slowly – just one change a week. If I felt better, I would hold onto the change to make it a habit.

Paleo Baked Logger’s Hash

A fantastic weekend or company breakfast, Baked Logger’s hash is comfort food for me. Super nutritious, this Paleo version is made with sweet potatoes, eggs, organic ham, mushrooms, and an entire bunch of kale. Then you pour the egg filling on top and bake like a crustless quiche. I used morel and shiitake mushrooms,

Paleo No-Honey Cake

Traditional honey cake is ancient, its rich flavor imprinted deep in my memory. I know honey is Paleo and natural, however it sends my blood sugar sky high! This unique recipe tastes just as satisfying as the original, but contains no honey at all! Instead of honey and refined flour, the surprise ingredients 

green-mayo-2

Apr 26

Green Mayo, Egg-free

Basil and herbs make this mayonnaise green! Green means it’s alive and healthy. Homemade mayo is way better than store-bought. It’s got fresh lemon juice, healthy oils, and tastes yummy on salads or sandwiches. This is also a vegan mayonnaise recipe and a Paleo mayo, made without soy or eggs.

My Rejuvenating Paleo Coffee Ritual

I’ll NEVER give up my coffee ritual EVER. Warm, rich, tantalizing, and SUPER rejuvenating! Move over Starbucks! My “coffee” is made from pure natural roasted roots of chicory and dandelion. The familiar coffee jolt we crave will actually add 10 years to your appearance and body age.

Breakfast Cereal, the Surprising Truth

By Jane Barthelemy. Breakfast means a bowl of cereal. After all isn’t this an American tradition? Nope. It’s actually a very recent marketing invention. A tiny mistake in Battle Creek, Michigan changed the face of breakfast forever. Harvey Kellogg (recognize the name?)

papaya-tangrine-smoothie

Apr 21

Papaya Tangerine Smoothie

Today’s breakfast was a refreshing flavor treat of creamy, luscious papaya. I added tangerine, coconut milk, and strawberries for a WOW! Intensely luscious smoothie! Look for healthy organic or non-GMO papaya, as many papayas are genetically modified. This papaya milkshake tastes like the papaya “batidos” I used to

Apr 15

Fiddleheads! What to do?

Today I had just 10 minutes for lunch. The refrigerator was almost bare except for – Aha! Fiddleheads! These coiled-up fern shoots taste like a cross between wild asparagus and green beans. Since I love asparagus omelets, I thought I’d experiment with fiddleheads, throwing in a few shiitakes and garlic. Yummilicious!

Wild Salmon & Cashew Aioli Sauce

Yesterday I wanted a quick and different way to prepare salmon. Aha! How about a blended cashew aioli sauce? Surprise ingredients, fish sauce and cod liver oil, made it high in Omega-3 oils, super-healthy, and delicious with fish! I wanted to put the sauce on everything…

Is Coffee Paleo?

By Jane Barthelemy. So, is coffee Paleo? Well, the answer is emphatically NO. Sorry, wishful thinking won’t put it in the Paleo era. The bullet-proof truth is that coffee was first cultivated in Ethiopia c. 1,000 BCE. Perhaps one of today’s most addicting and harmful modern foods, it was first banned in Mecca

Apr 05

Wild Dandelion Avocado Pesto

It’s dandelion season! I went for a walk in the hills of Santa Fe, and the wild dandelions were calling me. I love them sautéed, but today I want them raw with nutrients and enzymes intact. Aha! How about a pesto? An hour later I was spreading yummy pesto

Is Maple Syrup Paleo?

By Jane Barthelemy. I love maple syrup on my Paleo pancakes! After all, it’s pure sap from maple trees. Right? Sorry, the answer is NO. Is it really Paleo? Unfortunately, the answer is again emphatically NO. This probably won’t be my most popular post.

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

This is an easy 15-minute weekday breakfast, super-luscious with an irresistibly rich flavor. My friend Shauna Ireland came to Santa Fe for a photo shoot. We made these together, she loved them, and there were no leftovers! I confess, I didn’t use pumpkin. I used butternut squash, as it has a natural sweetness,

Pomegranate Pear Sauce

I was making the Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes for breakfast, and didn’t have any syrup. Hmmm… What to do? All I had was a pear and a bit of Pomegranate powder. I threw them in the blender and presto!  OMG, this divinely luscious sauce was the result. Yummy and instant! Try it on Buckwheat Pancakes, Plantain Pancakes,

No-Bake Paleo Pumpkin Nut Balls

These Caveman Cookies are a super-quick, high-protein snack, and easy enough for a child to make. They’re also a yummy way to use up leftover pumpkin. If you use one of these natural zero-glycemic sweeteners, they won’t raise blood sugar or cause hyper-activity in kids.

Avoiding GMO’s? Here’s a Guide.

By Jane Barthelemy. Healthy is the new skinny! So what is step 1 to being healthy? Figuring out what you are putting into your body, and knowing what you shouldn’t. One of the easiest things to slip through the cracks? GMO! Planning on getting a burger for lunch? Think again – the meat is GMO-fed.
