Sprouted Quinoa Salad with Avocado

This is my favorite way to eat quinoa, because it is delicious, nutritious and super-quick! Quinoa is a gluten-free, celiac-safe complete protein, which makes it an ideal nourishing vegetarian meal. Quinoa is an ancient Incan plant related to beet and chard. Since it's not a grass or a grain, I guess it sort-of qualifies as "Paleo". Quinoa has countless health benefits: It is high in magnesium, fiber, minerals, and it acts as a natural pro-biotic to promote intestinal health. Sprouted seeds ...

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 ...

Bangkok Meal in a Leaf

Here's your 5-minute lunch in a kale or chard leaf! My favorite Thai appetizer is called Mieng Kum, a symphony of flavors that tantalize the taste buds.

Vary the recipe according to your taste, your diet, and ingredients you have on hand. The basic idea is to wrap foods in a leaf, with an amazing Asian sauce. If you order this in a Thai ...

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 ...
