My 7 Nut Milk Experiments: Which is Best?

Wow! Once you've tasted the original flavor of homemade nut milk, you'll never go back! I've always been curious to compare flavor and nutrition in nut milks. Today's experiment was to compare seven nut milks made with the same easy recipe - see it below. I used Almonds, Brazil nuts, Cashews, Coconut flakes, Hazelnuts, Hemp seeds, and Pumpkin Seeds. The results were amazing, and I hope you find them helpful. For yummy flavor additions, see my recipe post: Spike Your Nut Milks! Not...

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...

Pho Ga Vietnamese Soup with Optional Chicken

Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, this super-easy favorite is satisfying and highly nutritious. Every bite is a different experience, with chunks of ginger, basil, cilantro, garlic, spices, and lime. The key to scrumptious flavor and off the charts nutrition is your BROTH! Most Asian restaurants use chemical broths, GMO-fed meat, and cheap rice noodles, all low in nutrients. However this recipe is 100% real food, non-GMO, and grain-free! Zoodles are zucchini noodles, quick ...

You'll need a food processor. Pumpkin seeds are a true superfood loaded with a wide variety of healthy nutrients from magnesium to copper, protein and zinc. ...

Spiced Vegetable Dal, Nightshade-free!

Eat beans and live a long life! I especially love curried red lentils and confess that this dish is my comfort food. Yes, I know they're not officially Paleo. However it turns out that beans have been discovered at Paleolithic fossil sites all over the world, and in some areas were found to be their primary plant food. What about the anti-nutrients? Aha! Some people say they can't eat beans. Well, you have to soak them first! To destroy those pesky lectins and make beans highly ...

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.

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 ...

Adzuki Bean Salad with Butternut Squash

The earthy flavor of adzuki bean with vibrant lime and basil make this a zesty bean salad, delicious at room temperature or slightly warm.

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.
