Grapefruit, Greens, Ginger Smoothie

Delicious, refreshing, detoxifying for breakfast or snack, grapefruit makes a great anti-oxidant smoothie. Even better, it's low-glycemic and tastes yummy with ginger. I like the mild flavor of baby spinach, however any greens will do such as kale, chard, collards, dandelion, arugula, watercress, etc. Imagination and variety are my keys to making breakfast interesting, and this smoothie is a great way to start the day! Serves 2. ...

Nori Wrap, a Meal in Minutes

When I want a healthy meal in a minute, I grab a seaweed wrap. Seaweed is a superfood loaded with healthy Vitamins B12, C, D, E and K. It is rich in minerals such as potassium, selenium, calcium, iodine, magnesium, and potassium. Oh, and even better, it boosts energy levels and libido in both men and women. Nori sheets can be expensive, so I look for those thick nori packs in some healthy grocery stores, or Japanese markets. One pack lasts me 8-12 months. You can put just about any filling you ...

Addicted to coffee? This healthy brew will protect your Kidney Jing!

85% of Americans use caffeine daily. We drink 400 million cups of Joe every day. Our coffee obsession is a roaring $30 billion industry! However, if you're an independent soul like me that wants to be truly healthy, here's a delicious alternative. I'll cut to the chase: Coffee is addictive. It slowly depletes the kidney energy, according to Chinese Medicine, which means it's VERY bad news for your creativity, long life, and your S.E.X drive, I mean your libido. Yep. Are you addicted?  Do ...

Hiziki Seaweed Carrot Salad

Here's a tasty way to get your sea vegetables. Hijiki seaweed is a delicious nutrient-dense superfood, high in fiber, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K.

Serve this versatile salad alone, on a bed of greens, or over zoodles! Store for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. Serves 4. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe...

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 the healthy organic or non-GMO papaya with real seeds, as many papayas are genetically modified. This papaya milkshake tastes like the papaya "batido" beverages I used to buy on the street in Mexico, except those are usually made with (uh oh!) sweetened evaporated milk and sugar! I love the tantalizing tropical...

Asian Salad & Wild Salmon for Lunch!

Many of my clients ask me for quick and easy lunches for one person. Here is my lunch today, a Japanese-inspired salad that is satisfying, high protein, low-carb, and zero sugar. Wild Alaskan salmon is a rich source of protein, vitamins, and minerals, and the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 in wild salmon is far superior to farmed. Look for wild salmon, and avoid salmon labeled “Atlantic salmon”, as it usually comes from fish farms. Instead look for “Wild Alaskan Salmon” or “sockeye ...

Low-Carb Cauliflower Risotto alla Milanese with Saffron

When I lived in Venice, Italy, I enjoyed risotto almost every day. Ha Ha! But sadly, it's loaded with carbs, and I gained a lot of weight. Traditional ingredients for Risotto alla Milanese are arborio rice, aged Parmiggiano Reggiano, and saffron. Oooh! I love saffron! I've resolved the carb problem with this Paleo-Vegan adapted recipe, so you won't gain weight like I did. It's super-low in carbs and even quicker to make. With Cauliflower Rice, you don't have to stand over a hot stove stirring ...

Paleo Chocolate Mousse

When I need a luscious snack or dessert in 5 minutes, this is my favorite treat. Creamy, rich chocolate is not only a gentle aphrodisiac. It also contains natural mood elevators such as Theobromine, and Phenethylamine, often called the “Love” chemical. Avocado lends a beautiful smooth consistency, and its taste disappears in the mix of chocolaty flavors. BTW avocado vitamins and minerals are off the charts. Not only does it top the high-potassium foods list, but it’s also a great ...

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. ...

If you're one of the 40% of Americans that are nightshade-intolerant, this easy soup is for YOU. Just boil, immersion blend, and enjoy! ...

I'm crazy for BEETS this week! Yep, those are my teeth marks in the photo. I dare you to try this luscious Natural Buttercream Frosting.

Instant Pumpkin Spice Latte

Paleo Pumpkin Latte is a quick and satisfying pick-me-up. It's also a great breakfast! This Vegan latte uses non-dairy milk, such as coconut or almond milk. It's also a Paleo recipe, free of gluten, grains, processed ingredients, GMO's, and extracted oils. Real original whole foods are satisfying, flavorful, and healthy for the body. Frankenfoods are low in nutrients, with less flavor, but far more profitable to sell. Starbucks sells millions of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I wonder what ...

Sparkling Virgin Pomegranate Punch

Like spiced wine, this zingy raspberry pomegranate punch is quick to make and perfect for any holiday gathering. The flavor is deep and refreshing. Just blend, add sparkling water, and serve. It's filled with with vitamins and anti-oxidant nutrients from berries, pomegranate, and cherries. Makes about 3 quarts punch. Serves about 20 people. You can always dilute it to make more by adding more sparkling water. I made it virgin, without alcohol, however you can spike it as you please. ...

Paleo Butternut Squash Soup with Toasted Seeds

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’m short of time, this is my #1 quickest soup recipe. I sometimes use pre-cubed organic squash, cook, blend with an immersion blender and serve in 5 minutes! 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 ...

Their family includes Broccoli, Cauliflower, Bok choy, Cabbage, Collard greens, Brussels sprouts, Kale, Turnips, Watercress, Daikon, Radish, Arugula, Rutabaga, and ...

Paleo Bone Broth

When you're feeling weak and tired, bone broth is the #1 best cure. Real broth tastes delicious and is easy to simmer for hours or overnight while you do other things. There’s nothing in the world like homemade soup made from tail bones. Ha Ha! Commercial broths are often made from unknown animal discards with sugar and MSG. Yuch! However, this bone broth is far more delicious, deeply satisfying, with an off-the-charts nutritional profile. Scroll down for complete instructions. I learned ...

It's a Green Bliss Smoothie! Imagine a creamy young coconut milkshake. Now add smooth avocado and uplifting matcha green tea.

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. ...
