Hi-Protein Strawberry Milkshake

Raspberry Rhubarb Goji Bars

These luscious bars came to me in a dream. So I HAD to try them! A fantasy in warm red raspberry-rhubarb filling oozing out of a rich, crumbly cinnamon shortbread, with refreshing goji berries. They came out pretty much like I imagined! Guilt-free superfood bars, low-carb, and tantalizingly luscious. Goji berries are higher in protein than any other fruit, and they're the only fruit in the world that contains ALL essential amino acids. Gojis are also loaded with vitamin C, anti-oxi...

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! Nowadays corn is GMO, lifeless, and tasteless. Sadly, I miss my favorite pancakes! So, I just invented this easy one-step recipe. It's free of grains, gluten, sugar, and GMO's. YAY! 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 ...

This nutrient-dense treat gives you everything you need – vitality, yummy texture, and sublime taste. Just blend and enjoy! It could be your easy breakfast, snack, or dessert.

Berry Parfait with Coconut Kefir

For a quick breakfast or a snack, there's nothing like a creamy parfait. Use your favorite berries - today I used blueberries, raspberries and black elderberries. This is yummy with Easy Homemade Coconut Yogurt, coconut kefir or goat yogurt. Kefir and yogurt are easy to assimilate, as the proteins are mostly digested by healthy bacteria. I added a dash of vanilla and optional sweetener. Today I used sprouted, toasted organic almonds. This is an easy breakfast or snack. It serves two, but I ...

Fiddleheads! What to do?

Today I had just 10 minutes for lunch. These coiled-up fern shoots showed up at my local organic market. They come up in the forest in the spring. Their taste is sweet - something like wild asparagus and green beans. Since I love asparagus omelets, I thought I'd experiment with fiddleheads, throwing in a few shiitakes and garlic. Yummilicious! A Fiddlehead Shiitake Omelet! If you can scramble an egg, you can make an omelet. And there's nothing comparable to the flavor of fresh wild ...

Papaya Tangerine Smoothie

Today's breakfast was a refreshing flavor treat of creamy, luscious papaya. I added tangerine, coconut milk, and strawberries for a WOW! Intensely luscious smoothie! Look for healthy organic or non-GMO papaya, as many papayas are genetically modified. This papaya milkshake tastes like the papaya "batidos" I used to buy on the street in Mexico, made with (uh oh!) sweetened evaporated milk and sugar! Fortunately, papaya offers a tantalizing tropical taste with a relatively low sugar ...

Sweet Potato Golden Milk with Turmeric

Golden Milk is a delicious way to get your daily dose of turmeric. Quick to prepare, this spicy chai will warm your heart and stimulate total vitality. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is a powerful anti-inflammatory that destroys many types of cancer cells. But it is difficult for the body to absorb. This Golden Milk recipe is especially formulated to help you assimilate ALL the health benefits of turmeric. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber, vitamin C, potassium, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, manganese, magnesium, and copper. They get their orange color from beta-carotene, an antioxidant. Homemade Golden Milk is way healthier than any store bought beverage, as it's free of dairy, sugar, GMO's and chemicals. ...

Spanish “Tortilla de Patata” Frittata with Cauliflower

Easy "Tortilla de Patata" is a favorite meal-in-minutes from Barcelona to Madrid to Seville. This recipe is a cauliflower take-off on that national dish of Spain. Cauliflower is an ideal substitute for potatoes, because it's delicious, a highly nutritious cruciferous veggie, low in carbs, and so quick to cook. It can be ready in a snap fo breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Potatoes and peppers are not on my diet, as they're in the nightshade family, which causes intestinal problems for some people - ...

Have you ever tried GABA Kitchari?

Kitchari is a nourishing miracle of everyday wellness from Ayurvedic cooking. This recipe is especially rich in minerals, amino acids and GABA. What is GABA? When we activate the Gamma-aminobutyric acid in unprocessed beans and rice by presoaking overnight, it stimulates the life force so these foods are higher in nutrients, more digestible, and won't give you gas.  Soaking or sprouting the beans and rice is easy. It removes any bitter seed coatings, adding a superfood level of cleansing ...

Here's a quick snack with high-protein nutrition. Even better, yummy probiotics will keep your inner micro-biome running in top condition.

And chocolate is one of the highest anti-oxidant foods on the planet. Hooray! However, chocolate must be 100% and sugar-free to reap the benefits, because sugar causes body acidity and disturbs gut microbiome. ...
