Fermented Veggies

The easiest and healthiest superfood you can make, fermented veggies are a natural probiotic that build healthy intestinal flora. And since the immune system depends on friendly bacteria in the gut, this is central to your health each day. This is a great way to use up leftover raw veggies.

Grated Beet and Carrot Salad

This is a super-healthy side dish that’s economical and tastes delicious with everything. It’s easiest to make if you have a food processor with a grating blade. Just grate the beets and carrots, make a dressing and mix. I’m excited because I’m moving into a new place to set up a test kitchen for my upcoming book on Paleo Breakfasts!

Sprouted Quinoa Salad with Avocado

This is my favorite way to eat quinoa, because it is delicious, nutritious and super-quick! Quinoa is a gluten-free, celiac-safe complete protein, which makes it an ideal nourishing vegetarian meal. Quinoa is an ancient Incan plant related to beet and chard. It is not a grass or a grain, so the seed qualifies as a Paleo food. It has countless health benefits: It is high in magnesium, fiber, minerals, and it acts as a natural pro-biotic to promote intestinal health. Since sprouted seeds are more easily digested, I buy sprouted quinoa, available in most whole food groceries. It has been
