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.

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…

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

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,

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.

Sprouted Senate Bean Soup with Bacon

An American classic, Senate Bean Soup has been served in the Senate dining room on Capitol Hill every day for over 100 years! There was just one day in a whole century, during severe rationing on September 14, 1943 they ran out of beans. By the next day more beans were found, and bean soup has been ladled up without interruption ever since.

Chocolate-Pumpkin-waffles

Feb 21

Chocolate Pumpkin Sour Cream Waffles

The rich, mellow flavor of pumpkin blends beautifully with chocolate. I’m told waffles were invented in medieval days. A knight in full armor sat on a cake cooling outside a lady’s house in Sweden. What was he thinking? 

Cornbread-mini-muffins

Buckwheat Pancakes & Apple Butter

Last night, wide awake with the full moon, I had a vision of fluffy buckwheat pancakes without flour. Sounds impossible. I got up to soak some buckwheat groats. Next morning, the results were the fluffiest and tastiest pancakes ever! Even better, I enjoyed them within 15 minutes including the apple butter.

congee

Congee, My Favorite Comfort Breakfast

Just as Americans love chicken soup, Asians crave Congee. Easy to make and light on the digestion, Congee is a beloved comfort food from Shanghai to Manila. Ridiculously simple to prepare overnight in a slow-cooker, your breakfast will be soft, hot, and ready to eat in the morning.

Except it is 100% gluten and grain-free! This bread slices and toasts beautifully, great for sandwiches or your morning toast. 

No-Peanut Butter Cookies

Jan 20

Paleo No-Peanut-Butter Cookies

I can’t live without peanut-butter cookies. But there are lots of reasons to avoid peanuts on a healthy diet. For one, peanuts aren’t Paleo. That’s because they’re not a tree-nut, but a legume, a bean that grows underground, and wasn’t a major part of the human diet until well after the advent of agriculture

Paleo Sweet Potato Mini-Muffins

Today I had an irresistible craving for healthy muffins, not too sweet, with the rich flavor of sweet potatoes. I adore these for breakfast, snack, or dessert. Mini-muffins seem so small and innocent, I can pop half a dozen in my mouth before I catch myself. Anyway, it’s not a problem as these are pretty much guilt-free,

Warm Mexican Sweet Potato Salad

A fabulous way to serve sweet potatoes any time of year, this traditional dish explodes with Latino flavors of roasted sweet potato, peppers, and spices.

Sweet-Sour-Chicken

Nov 15

Gong Fu Chicken!

Someone recently asked what is my favorite sauce. Well, this is it! I call it Gong Fu Chicken. In English that means Achievement of Man, which describes this sauce perfectly. You’ll never find anything this yummy in Chinatown. The closest thing is sweet & sour chicken.

Best Turkey Gravy Ever – Paleo-style

This is the creamiest gravy I’ve ever tasted. And the quickest. The secret to rich gravy is turkey drippings, coconut milk, and arrowroot to thicken instantly. Turkey gravy doesn’t have to be hard. We don’t have to wait while mom stirs over a hot stove for an hour and everyone’s ready to dig in. There’s no need for a roux,

I remember a traditional black bean soup in my favorite Cuban cafe on West 72nd street. The deep, dark flavor was indescribably delicious, but oh boy it gave me gas. Well, this recipe resolves that!

Paleo Turkey Tagine Stuffing

I’m in the mood for a new stuffing this holiday. Something with rich exotic spices! And crunchy textures. This Paleo stuffing is based on a Moroccan stew, slow-cooked in a Tagine clay-pot. That’s similar to baking inside a bird, right? This turkey stuffing is nothing like my mom’s. It is gluten-free and grain-free,

Nov 04

Gluten-Free Green Herb Bread

Nutritious and deep green, I created this bread for an herbalist friend’s birthday. While the color is surprising, the flavor is wonderful. It slices perfectly, and tastes absolutely divine with grass-fed butter or Vegan Cream Cheese. Chia seeds replace gluten to give the bread a perfect traditional texture like wheat.

Holiday Spiced Beet Elixir

This delicious non-alcoholic punch is made from spiced ginger tea, pomegranate, and yes – fermented beets! The flavor is exalting, the feeling uplifting and enlivening.
