Jane’s Recipes

DSC_2602 - Version 2

My recipes are all original. Every one! Food should bring you energy, clarity and JOY! Perhaps my biggest discovery is how to make sweets that don’t elevate blood sugar or cause weight gain. We believe desserts are BAD for us (and most of them are)! However sweets can be HEALTHY! In an epidemic of sugar-related diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer, THIS is the solution: Use low-carb, original, unprocessed ingredients. There’s no need for deprivation. Here are some of my recipes. Try them and send me your comments!  Jane

Luscious Lemon Yogurt Cheesecake

A taste of sunlight! Everybody loves this creamy dessert, without even knowing about its cancer prevention qualities, because of the invigorating lemon flavor, revitalizing honey, and crispy nut crust. As you may know, I study the work of German physician, Dr. Johana Budwig, a 7x Nobel Prize nominee for her research and 95% success rate healing cancer with Omega-3 essential fatty acids. Dr. Budwig was a brilliant biochemist and physician who discovered the roots of cancer, much to the chagrin of the food industry.

Tiramisu, Paleo Style

Tiramisù means “pick-me-up” in Italian. It definitely does that, with layers of creamy filling, espresso syrup and chocolate. This Paleo version will rival anything you’ll taste in Milano. Chefs love it too because it's so easy to make. This tiramisu has three parts: 1) two cake layers 2) pastry cream 3) espresso syrup. It tastes sinfully decadent, however it is full of nutrient-dense ingredients like pure coconut meat, cashews, high-protein almond meal and eggs. It won't raise blood sugar or cause weight gain if you use one of the natural zero-carb sweeteners.

Chocolate Superfood Travel Snack Bars

Hi everybody! Did I tell you I'm going on a trip? I'll be away for two months in London, Mumbai, Ganeshpuri, Kathmandu, and Tibet, doing a medical service tour and Qigong study. When I travel I always bring uplifting treats from home. And these are my absolute favorite! A comforting snack with heavenly flavor and a superfood kick is an absolute necessity on a trip - or a hike. They'll go in my backpack so they're handy to grab. Airports are sorely lacking in nourishing food, so we have to be ingenious!

Heavenly Carrot Soup

The last time I was in Paris I innocently ordered Potage Crécy, carrot soup, in a fine restaurant. The moment I tasted it I almost fell off my chair, it was so delicious. Velvety smooth with heavenly flavor and deeply nourishing. Amazed, I asked the waiter what was in it. He disappeared into the kitchen and returned with the chef, who politely said: "Madame, this is the easiest dish we make. It is simply carrots, butter, chicken broth, and heavy cream. But of course, it all depends on the broth."

Paleo Dark Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Chocolate cheesecake is a necessity of life! Imagine luscious New York cheesecake merging with dark chocolate truffles. Sounds like heaven, right? Only this recipe is super-easy to make and totally dairy-free, of course. Its vegan cream cheese texture comes from blended lemons and coconut butter. These are pretty intense and chocolaty, so I suggest small pieces. You'll get a little endorphin lift from the chocolate - Oh yeah! But there will be no sugar spike or weight gain if you use the suggested natural non-glycemic sweetener. Yay!

Paleo Sprouted Almond Flourless Blender Bread

Do you love bread? Aha! Flourless blender bread is super-easy, with the most wonderful flavor! It's Paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, high in protein, and it cleans your intestines as it nourishes your body. Yay! Sadly all flours have the annoying habit of getting stuck in the intestinal wall as a gluey mess called mucoid plaque, causing unwanted bulges and belly flab. So I've almost eliminated flour from my kitchen. Now that we have blender bread, we don't need flour at all. Ha ha!

Sweet Potato Pakora with Garlic Scapes

If you have a food processor, they're a snap to make, rich in flavor, filled with crunchy aromatic veggies. The word pakora comes from Sanskrit meaning a 'cooked lump of dough'. In India they're usually fried in ghee. Except these are baked, not fried. Yay! They're pleasantly spicy with curry, but not particularly hot. Goji berries give a tantalizing sweet flavor and orange color.

Today I needed a refreshing bite of lemon & ginger. These bars have a zingy citrus flavor, plus they're raw and alive with powerful anti-oxidant lemon nutrition. In Chinese medicine lemon is cooling -- yes I get it. And ginger moves Qi, the vital force in the body -- well, I definitely need that. Super-easy to make, you don't need any equipment for this recipe, although a food processor is a wee bit quicker. There's no need to bake these bars, as

Today the kitchen was almost bare - just a few apricots, blueberries, a handful of spinach, lemon, and a bit of fresh basil. OK, that's perfect! I tossed all these ingredients together - every one loaded with delicious flavor, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and alkaline power. It took about 3 minutes to slice them and blend a dressing. Whew! It was a fabulicious lunch! Try it!

Easy Almond Fudge, Burfi from India

Burfi is a dense sweet fudge from India. I created two recipes for a recent event and both turned out fabulous! This is super-easy to make on the stovetop, and doesn't have to be baked. Burfi is often made at Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights in the Autumn, and there are hundreds of varieties. Almond Fudge, or Badam Burfi is made with almond meal.

Tibetan “Cream Cheese” Candy, Dairy-free

This was a favorite at my recent musical Tibetan Solstice ceremony gathering in Santa Fe. After chanting we shared this delightful candy called Burfi. It is usually made with sweetened condensed milk and sugar. Instead this Paleo-adapted recipe uses coconut milk, coconut butter, and natural zero-carb sweetener. Looks complicated, but it's so easy to make! I wanted it rich and thick, so I added 1/2 cup Vegan Coconut Milk Powder from Edward & Sons, which is optional.

Paleo Pumpkin Seed Pesto

Alive with flavor and life force, this pesto is an easy nutritional powerhouse you can enjoy in 2 minutes flat. It looks and tastes just like authentic Pesto Genovese, but dairy-free with pumpkin seeds instead of pine nuts. For this vegan pesto, I used lemon juice and nutritional yeast to give a tangy parmesan taste. You'll need a food processor. Pumpkin seeds are a true superfood loaded with a wide variety of healthy nutrients from magnesium to copper, protein and zinc.

How Much Life Force is in Your Food?

Is your food glowing with life force? Or is it lifeless? When a food has just been picked, it's LOADED with life force and nutrients! Life force is vital energy or Qi. After harvesting, the life force gradually declines. At the very last stage of decline, microbes take over, it disintegrates, dies and gets recycled back into the earth. When food is processed at high heat, it loses life force, so high temperature baking, frying, and irradiation cause a loss in nutrients. When raw foods are dried or dehydrated,
