Paleo Pumpkin Seed Pesto

Alive with flavor and life force, this pesto is an easy nutritional powerhouse you can enjoy in 2 minutes flat. It looks and tastes just like authentic Pesto Genovese, but dairy-free with pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts. For this vegan pesto, I used lemon juice and nutritional yeast to give a tangy parmesan taste. You'll need a food processor. Pumpkin seeds are a true superfood loaded with a wide variety of healthy nutrients from magnesium to copper, protein and zinc. ...

How Much Life Force is in Your Food?

Is your food glowing with life force? Or is it lifeless? When a food has just been picked, it's LOADED with life force and nutrients! Life force is vital energy or Qi. After harvesting, the life force gradually declines. At the very last stage of decline, microbes take over, it disintegrates, dies and gets recycled back into the earth. When food is processed at high heat, it loses life force, so high temperature baking, frying, and irradiation cause a loss in nutrients. When raw foods are dried or dehydrated,...

“Peanut Butter” Cookies without Gluten, Grain, or Peanuts

I call these babies "No-Peanut Butter Cookies". They taste just like classic peanut butter cookies, crunchy on the outside, soft in the inside. They're Paleo, free of peanuts, gluten, grains, dairy, GMO's and sugars. Even better, they're incredibly easy to make, high in protein and ridiculously low in carbs. Hooray! Use ANY nut butter you like. I used toasted cashew, pumpkin, and almond butters, plus raw hemp butter. See my nut nutritional analysis. ...

Beware! Non-GMO Foods with Glyphosate

So you're eating GMO-free - that's great. But if non-GMO is your main guiding principal, there's a wake-up call that's flying under everyone's radar. Surprise! A whole new generation of GMO-free fake foods just arrived in your favorite grocery. You can avoid them in 3 steps:
  1. GMO foods are to be avoided. We're getting this. Learn them - see the graphic below. They contain both GMO's and Glyphosate.
  2. Glyphosate foods are the everyday foods that haven't been modified (yet) and are raised with toxic chemicals. Remember that Glyphosate or worse pesticides and herbicides are in all non-organic foods. See examples below.
  3. Non-GMO foods with Glyphosate - Yep, a whole new generation of certified non-GMO foods with Glyphosate and chemicals has just arrived. The public is demanding non-GMO, so these toxic foods are filling grocery shelves and flying under the radar. Marketed as healthy, they contain plenty of herbicides and pesticides. Don't buy them. Let food manufacturers know we want CLEAN FOOD. Read my lips!

Here's a quick snack to satisfy a sweet craving while providing high protein whole food nutrition. Even better, probiotics will keep your inner micro-biome running in top condition. Basically a chocolate banana coconut milkshake, I added my favorite probiotics. We get extra kudos for chocolate, because chocolate is actually a fermented food! Ha ha!

Curried Vegetable Dal, Nightshade-free!

Eat beans and live a long life! I especially love curried red lentils and confess that this dish is my comfort food. Yes, I know they're not officially Paleo. However it turns out that beans have been discovered at Paleolithic fossil sites all over the world, and in some areas were found to be their primary plant food. What about the anti-nutrients? Aha! Two things destroy those pesky lectins and make beans highly digestible. 1) Soaking well 8-12 hours removes ...

Hmmm... There on the counter was an avocado, a bag of shredded coconut and some blueberries.

Zoodles alla Carbonara, Paleo style

Everyone loves Spaghetti alla Carbonara! This easy 15-minute meal is high in protein, low in carbs, Paleo-adapted with zoodles, or zucchini noodles! We think of this as a traditional Italian dish, however it's actually a 1944 adaptation of US Army rations. Spaghetti alla Carbonara was invented by a smart Italian refugee woman during WWII. It seems American troops shared powdered eggs and bacon with starving coal diggers who had fled to the hills around Rome to escape the Germans. ...

With only five ingredients, minutes later we were enjoying this refreshing mousse! Opening a young coconut used to be a chore, however I recently bought a Coco Jack tool. See below how easy it is! I'm going to be making this a LOT! Make sure your strawberries are organic, as they absorb nefarious amounts of pesticides. ...
