Coconut sugar has become the new sweetener of choice for the health-food industry. I see chocolate bars, snacks, and Paleo recipes using it as a natural sweetener. With an epidemic of diabetes and obesity worldwide, everyone is looking more closely at sweeteners. Manufacturers tout coconut sugar as a healthy alternative to table sugar and better than high-fructose corn syrup. But is coconut sugar really healthier? Or is this just marketing hype? How is Coconut Sugar made? Coconut sugar actually comes from a variety of palm sources. It is also called coconut nectar, coconut crystals, or palm sugar. Coconut sugar is [...]
I confess, it took me 8 tries to make a vegan quiche worthy of sharing with you. This Paleo-vegan recipe has a wonderful flavor and just the right consistency. The texture is similar to traditional quiche – except it’s egg-free! Instead of eggs, blended cashews, coconut, and grain-free flour bind it together. Super-easy to make, it tastes divine, and there’s no crust to worry about. It makes a nourishing breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack that’s chock full of vegetables. Use your favorite veggies – I used carrots, zucchini, olives, and peas that were on hand. I added low-carb almond meal [...]
If Xylitol is your favorite sweetener read no further – I’ll never disturb a beautiful relationship. But if you’re still on the fence about Xylitol, read on. Here are some surprising pros and cons that will help you make an informed choice. What is Xylitol? Xylitol is a granulated sweetener that tastes almost exactly like sugar, made from fermented plant pulp. Originally made from birch bark, now it is most often made from corn stalks, cobs, and husks. Xylitol is naturally found in low concentrations in fruits and vegetables. It can be extracted from raspberries, oats, mushrooms, corn, sugar cane [...]
Firm, moist, and extremely flavorful, this olive loaf is a grain-free, no-knead, no yeast bread. Just mix, bake and enjoy. Instead of yeast, it uses old-fashioned baking soda and apple cider vinegar as leavening. Artisan bread baked in a pot is as old as the hills, and I think it’s by far the easiest way to make bread. Pot baking essentially steams the bread, so it stays moist and rises more than dry-baking. I used a Le Creuset 22 cm (3.5 quart) pot because it is heavy and really retains heat, however any medium sized pot will do if it [...]
Today I found organic watercress at the grocery! So I made this super-easy salad using all high-alkaline veggies. Watercress, with its pleasantly pungent flavor, is helpful in reversing acidity and purifying the blood. It has been used as a healing food for thousands of years. Watercress is especially high in anti-oxidants and Vitamin K (that’s the one most of us are lacking). Dr. Mercola says watercress contains over 15 essential vitamins and minerals, more iron than spinach, more calcium than milk, and more Vitamin C than oranges! Watercress is strongly alkaline due to its high potassium content. Add parsley, cucumbers, [...]
