Coconut Kale With Sesame Crusted Salmon

This recipe combines several really healthy foods – coconut, salmon, kale, ginger. Even though not every single ingredient here is anti-inflammatory, the majority of them are, so I am including this recipe under the anti-inflammatory recipe section. Ginger is a top anti-inflammatory. This makes a great meal as it includes protein, veggie, and healthy fat. […]

Detox Greens Drink

Detox drinks, smoothies, teas and all manner of detox protocols are popular. Ideally, you want to keep your body detoxed on a daily basis by eating a clean diet, drinking clean water, using zero to low toxin body/bath products and household cleaners, and minimizing toxins in your environment. I developed this detox drink as a […]

Tartar Sauce

I don’t know about you, but I have not been able to find a tartar sauce at any grocery store that does not include soybean oil or canola oil. Perhaps one exists somewhere to buy, but why not make your own? And if having tartar sauce helps you to eat more fish (not fried), then […]

Making Your Own Body Scrub Can Be Better for You and the Environment

Eventually I’d like to make all my own personal care products, just like women did for thousands of years. I have several books instructing me how, but time and gathering all the needed resources is still holding me back. However, one thing that I have been making myself for awhile because it is super easy […]

Green Beans With Dressing

I tend to eat quite a few grean beans (especially when my husband grows them). Green beans aren’t in the top five highest source of any vitamin or mineral, but they do contain lots of vitamins and minerals. The dressing can also be made and used for any veggie or salad. INGREDIENTS: 1 lb. green […]

Coconut Milk Eggnog

I made this eggnog for the first time for 2013 Christmas with the family. I think it turned out pretty well, but I will note that some family members did not find it to be “sweet” enough (that was the point). This is a great alternative to dairy and excess sugar versions from the store, […]

Calories – Should You Care?

I admit that it’s hard to let go of the calorie concept for eating and exercising. There is so much science and research surrounding calories and I’m a big sucker for science and research. But I’m also quite aware of the fact that prior to the last forty to fifty years, the average person had […]

Cajun Fish

Salmon is a superfood that we should all be trying to consume, but I find that many people aren’t sure how to cook fish or how to make it tasty. It is super easy to make tasty fish! This recipe is simple to make and can be prepped ahead and then cooked when ready to […]

Creamy Maple Carrot (or Sweet Potato) Puree

Thanksgiving is almost here, so I thought I would post the recipe I am making to take to my in-laws for turkey day. I like to call it turkey day because I do eat lots of turkey! I believe in taking a vegetable because not enough people have vegetables at holiday gatherings (or anytime), but […]

Turkey Sausage Patties

In an effort to get more protein at breakfast for people who are on the go, but still want real food, these sausage patties are super easy to make and can be made ahead and then warmed up (or eaten cold). You can also use any ground meat that you like in this recipe. And […]
