If you live in Athens or the Greek Islands, you’ll find this easy everyday breakfast on the street corners. My friend Kalpita in Athens says it will stave off a big fat Greek hunger all morning.

5-Minute Sprouted Buddha Bowl

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, this is a great way to use leftovers. If you have leftover brown rice and a few veggies on hand, it's a nutritious 5-minute meal. Start with 2 cups brown rice, preferably soaked or sprouted. Add a few sautéed veggies, and top with avocado. Egg and meat are optional. "Brown rice" is just unpolished rice, so it is fully nutrient dense, and tastier. If you pre-soak it, then it starts to sprout, so it is supercharged with living nutrients. As a grain, rice isn't ...

Easy, succulent and irresistible finger-licking morsels of spicy chicken with a crispy lemon-ginger coating. These are quick to make and indescribably luscious with green chili dip.

Rainbow Shaved Root Veggie Salad

Refreshing and alkalinizing, try this tangle of multicolored root vegetables - turnip, radishes, golden beet and carrots, tossed with basil, lemon-dill dressing. Since the veggies are raw, they need to be sliced very thin with a sharp knife or a peeler. This makes a gorgeous colorful salad any time of year. Use any toasted nuts you like. Pumpkin seeds are especially high in protein and magnesium. Even better, they're the only seed that is alkaline-forming in the body. And that's a very ...

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 ...

Everybody loves a slushy when it's hot outside! Blend them in just 5 minutes with whole fruit, which is WAY healthier than juice! Store-bought fruit juices are heat processed, stripped of fiber, acidifying, glycemic, tasteless, and low in nutrients.

Blueberry No-Cornmeal Pancakes

Here's a fantastic Father's Day Breakfast that anyone can do quickly. It's easy, gluten-free and luciously delicious. Instead of flour it uses shredded coconut and almond meal. A few years ago I loved my traditional cornmeal pancakes. Back then, corn was healthy, non-GMO, with an authentic homemade flavor and crunchy texture. But Uh Oh!

It uses blended coconut flakes for an old-fashioned texture that tastes just like corn. Ha Ha! I'm happy now. Throw in your blueberries at the end and stir by hand. Try these pancakes! ...

Baked Eggs in Avocado

Even when you're in a hurry, it's always possible to enjoy a nourishing meal. Simply crack two eggs into a sliced avocado and bake. When you finish getting dressed and checking your messages, breakfast is ready. Wow, was this delicious! Choose a large size avocado with a large seed and hole, so there's room for the egg without spilling over. The best choice is a Hass avocado. Not a Pinkerton or Fuerte avocado - as they have very small seeds, i.e. small holes. You may need to hollow out the ...

Wild Salmon Salad with Fennel

This zesty Asian-style salad is loaded with flavor and omega-3 nutrition. Steaming is a quick and gentle way of cooking salmon that retains enzymes and never exceeds 212°F. Serve this salad warm or cold, either as a lunch or a light main meal. Fennel's delicious flavor compliments the salmon, avocado and crunchy almonds. I suggest wild Alaska salmon as the safest fish, to avoid toxins in farmed fish and "Atlantic-raised" fish. To maximize health benefits from fish, I believe it's important ...
