Zucchini Pasta Alfredo with Chicken

I love Italian food, especially when it’s pasta! But why eat high-carb spaghetti that’s nutritionally empty? Zoodles are SO easy to make on a mandoline slicer or vegetable spiralizer. Traditional Pasta Alfredo is made with heavy cream and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, a dairy load some people can’t tolerate. This delicious Paleo recipe uses nutritional yeast and lemon to give a cheese flavor that's dairy-free. It uses 1 can (1 ¾ cups) of thick full-fat coconut milk instead of cream. ...

Everybody loves this smooth, savory soup, especially children. The mellow flavor of butternut squash with onion and coconut make it a rich, satisfying meal.

When I have time, I use whole squash. I remove the seeds and toast them, because they're so delicious and it doesn’t make sense to throw them away. The seeds are high in ...

Pumpkin Golden Milk

This creamy rich Golden Milk is deep satisfaction in 5 minutes. SOOOOOO Delicious! Turmeric stimulates blood circulation. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory superfood that destroys cancer cells. Essentially turmeric helps to tonify the organs to keep the immune system in peak condition. But before you start sprinkling turmeric on everything, please know that curcumin (its major active compound) is poorly absorbed in the body. To boost curcumin absorption, always try to eat turmeric with ...

Kashmiri Curry Chicken Tenders

This exotic dish will warm you deep inside. I love tantalizing Asian spices like turmeric, coriander, and Thai ginger. Easy to prepare, just marinate the chicken, roll in coconut flakes, and bake until crispy! And it tastes absolutely divine with my No-Peanut Sauce! The secrets to its flavor are Turmeric and Galangal, also called Thai ginger. Galangal is somewhat spicier than regular ginger root and gives the flavor a tantalizing kick. You can find Galangal in Asian markets, in the ...

Spike your day and uplift your immune system with this delicious 3-minute snack! Turmeric health benefits are widely publicized, and Golden Milk is all the rage. Oh yes, we can guzzle it down up in every flavor. However, turmeric is rather difficult for the body to absorb. Very few people understand how to prepare Golden Milk to optimize absorption.

Omega-3 Italian Fish Stew with Garlic and Saffron

This recipe is inspired by an amazing day on the Southern Adriatic coast. After teaching a Qigong workshop in Italy, I spent a few magical days in the charming beach town of Sirolo. Of course there's nothing to do but relax and eat fish! The sky and sea were calm and brilliant blue. We lounged under umbrellas all day, while the aroma of roasted garlic, olives, and the freshest fish beckoned us from the restaurant. ...

Zoodles with No-Tomato Sauce

I love Italian food, especially pasta with tomato sauce. However it's tough on my body, which prefers this amazing recipe with Zoodles and No-Tomato Sauce (or your favorite pasta sauce), and Vegan Parmesan Cheese. Why eat spaghetti that's high in carbs and nutritionally empty? I react to the acidity in tomatoes, a nightshade, like many other Caucasians. And nightshades are tough for some members of my family that have arthritis inflammation. If this isn't an issue, just use your favorite ...
