Heavenly Carrot Soup

The last time I was in Paris I innocently ordered Potage Crécy, carrot soup, in a fine restaurant. The moment I tasted it I almost fell off my chair, it was so delicious. Velvety smooth with heavenly flavor and deeply nourishing. Amazed, I asked the waiter what was in it. He disappeared into the kitchen and returned with the chef, who politely said: "Madame, this is the easiest dish we make. It is simply carrots, butter, chicken broth, and heavy cream. But of course, it all depends on the broth." ...

Allow them to soak and expand while you're getting dressed. Your delicious breakfast will be ready in 15 minutes. Top with fruit and enjoy. ...

Do you love bread? Aha! Flourless blender bread is super-easy, with the most wonderful flavor! It's Paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, high in protein, and it cleans your intestines as it nourishes your body. Yay! Sadly all flours have the annoying habit of getting stuck in the intestinal wall as a gluey mess called mucoid plaque, causing unwanted bulges and belly flab. So I've almost eliminated flour from my kitchen. Now that we have blender bread, we don't need flour at all. Ha ha! ...

Lemon-Ginger Coconut Chia Bars

Today I needed a refreshing bite of lemon & ginger. These bars have a zingy citrus flavor, plus they're raw and alive with powerful anti-oxidant lemon nutrition.

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. ...
