If you’re a fan of authentic old-world breads, you’ll love the subtle flavors of this dark rye loaf. Pleasantly dense with hints of fennel, caraway, and pumpkin seeds, one bite transports me to Eastern Europe. This bread slices and toasts beautifully, which is very surprising for a gluten-free, grain-free, Paleo loaf. Even better, it’s loaded with protein and whole-food nutrition. Sweetener is optional—I suggest a bit of raw honey. This bread is even tastier toasted and spread with Vegan Cream Cheese or grass-fed butter. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Or slice and freeze in an airtight […]
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 c. 10,000 years ago. Peanuts are also a potential source of anti-nutrient lectins, causing intestinal distress in many people. Even more alarming is the fact that peanut allergies have doubled in the last decade. Why is that? Most people aren’t aware that peanuts and peanut butters are very high […]
Last month I came down with a terrible case of Trigeminal Neuralgia. Yes, that’s oral shingles, with scabs all over my face, mouth, and terrible pain. It’s almost completely healed now, but I can assure you it was awful. This wasn’t a case of suffering from a long-term chronic illness. Not at all – I’m basically very healthy. It was a humiliating experience of discovering I’m not superwoman, and I have to take care of myself like everyone else, especially in the winter. As a serious health enthusiast and would-be example of a healthy lifestyle, it was quite a humbling […]
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, loaded with vitamins, potassium, and beta carotene. Even better, they’re grain-free and extremely low in the carbs that cause weight gain, especially if you use the zero-carb chicory root sweetener suggested. Oh, and if you’re out of sweet potatoes, they’re also very tasty with yams, […]
Kitchari is my favorite soup for cleansing – especially after the holidays. There’s something so satisfying and nourishing about it when I’m tired. A staple in Ayurvedic cooking, kitchari as been used for thousands of years to cleanse and heal digestion. It is a combination of rice or quinoa with split yellow or red dahl lentils and spices, that does not create gas. Delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Kitchari adds nutrition-supporting spices and vegetables to stabilize blood sugar. It helps to burn fat and release toxins. Sprouting the quinoa and lentils removes the seed coatings, and adds another level of cleansing and vital […]
