Paleo Pink Lemonade

It’s sweltering hot here in Santa Fe, we’re all living on pink lemonade. My mom’s lemonade was sugary-sweet, however this refreshing recipe is sugar-free, using a natural zero carb sweetener. I don’t use stevia after learning (what the Grocery Association doesn’t want you to know)

Paleo Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice Pilaf

You won’t find THIS rice pilaf in Athens or Mykonos, because it is made with cauliflower. A healthy alternative to potatoes or rice, no one will guess it is low-carb, grain-free, and Paleo.

Dark Chocolate Fudge, Sugar-free

My doctor requested an easy, healthy dark chocolate fudge. Well, here it is, luscious and so quick to make! If you’re eating 75% chocolate thinking it’s healthy, don’t kid yourself. The remaining 25% is probably sugar, definitely not healthy. Pure 100% chocolate is a superfood, one of the healthiest, highest-anti-oxidant

Curried White Bean Dip, No Nightshades

I love this spicy homemade dip! It is filled with luscious flavor and healthy vitamins! Fresh veggies are a colorful and nutritious way to enjoy dips.

I’m skipping chips and crackers as they’re low in life force (Qi), high in processed carbs, and nutritional empty.

Paleo Guacamole, Nightshade-free

My favorite avocado snack is usually made with tomatoes, cayenne, and jalapeños. So here’s a traditional Mexican recipe without them. Nightshade vegetables are a common allergen (tomatoes, peppers, white potatoes, eggplant).

Sprouted Hummus, Original Lebanese Recipe

We think of hummus as a healthy snack, a staple of the Middle Eastern diet. But how healthy is store-bought hummus? Every Lebanese grandmother knows how to make authentic hummus with sprouted chick peas. Traditional soaking and sprouting makes beans sweet, digestible, healthy, and quick to cook.

Fuji & Fennel Smoothie

Detoxifying and refreshing with a hint of sweet licorice, here’s a great use for those feathery fennel greens. High in anti-oxidants, vitamin-C, and bioflavonoids, fennel’s exotic flavor comes from the essential oil anethole, also found in anise and licorice. Fuji apples are pleasantly sweet, and relatively low in sugar, so

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!

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
