Paleo Turkey Tetrazzini

My favorite turkey leftover recipe in the world! Turkey Tetrazzini is NOT Italian. Yes, it was invented by the famous soprano Luisa Tetrazzini. She asked for creamed turkey over spaghetti with Parmeggiano Reggiano, and she got it! Like a true diva, she lived at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, where the chef prepared all her meals. Madame Tetrazzini was 100% Italian, and a feisty lady too! Read a bit of her story below. This holiday, I am CRAVING Turkey ...

Maple Syrup NOT Healthy! The devil is in the details.

By Jane Barthelemy. We LOVE drizzling tons of maple syrup on our gluten-free pancakes! After all, it's pure sap from maple trees. Right? Sorry, the answer is NO!  But maple syrup is unprocessed? Right? The answer is NO!  But maple syrup low in sugar? Right? NO NO NO! But maple won't acidify my body like sugar, right?  SORRY, IT ACIDIFIES EXACTLY THE SAME AS SUGAR!  Oh dear! As usual, the devil is in the details. This won't be my most popular post. Ha ...

Body Acidity: What’s Your Emotional pH?

Your body pH is a major key to living a long and healthy life. Balancing your body pH means regulating your acid-alkaline chemistry. This is a huge part of your health and protective immunity to every known disease be it cancer or the common cold. When your body pH is acidic, you’ll feel “off”. We can easily maintain an alkaline pH if we first understand the root factors that affect it. And these might surprise you! I do not wish ...

Detox Spinach Avocado Walnut Dip

This 5-minute dip is bursting with flavor and nutrients. Like a fresh pesto, it tastes zingy and alive. We can't measure LIFE FORCE in food. However we know instinctively that fresh alkaline foods have lots of healthy Qi, and processed foods do NOT. So garden-fresh foods are far higher in life force. This delicious spinach pesto is exploding with life! To make the dip, just put everything in the food processor, whiz, and it's ready in moments! I love crunchy chips, but these days I'm into colorful sliced veggies, ...

Alkaline Watercress Salad

Today I found organic watercress at the local grocery! So I made this super-easy salad with all high-alkaline veggies, like cucumber, sprouts, kelp, and avocado. 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 ...

Sicilian Eggs with Spicy Vegan Cheese Sauce!

A GREAT holiday breakfast! This high-protein, low-carb, one-skillet meal has a real Sicilian flavor when you use fresh basil, rosemary, and parsley. My vegan Spicy Cheese Sauce adds a tantalizing flavor that’s completely dairy-free. That’s because the rich, mellow flavor of this cheese is so compatible with Italian foods. You'll love this sauce and will want to pour it on everything! The sauce is made of coconut butter, nutritional yeast, and lemon juice, yet tastes almost exactly like aged cheese ...

Asparagus Gremolata

Wow! Want an easy and delicious way to eat asparagus! "Gremolata" sauce sounds fancy - but how simple is lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic and parsley? No equipment required. I like asparagus steamed al-dente, so it's sublime flavor comes through. Asparagus is a rich source of glutathione, a detoxifier and antioxidant that helps break down free radicals. It powerfully prevents diabetes by helping to balance insulin levels. It is a natural diuretic, promoting kidney health. We wouldn't want to forget that asparagus is an ...

WIFI, Poor Sleep, Dementia: A Link?

Did you know that Wifi tells your brain that its DAYTIME? Yes. Many people cannot fall sleep with Wifi. Or they sleep poorly and don't know why. But when they turn off the Wifi before bed, immediately they enjoy refreshing deep sleep. Why? I suggest we just switch the Wifi OFF at night. Studies clearly show a medical link between Wifi, brain biorhythms, melatonin, poor sleep, and increased Alzheimer's risk. WiFi doesn’t cause immediate diagnosable illness. The damage happens slowly ...
