Magic Mineral Broth

RECIPE - Magic Mineral Broth

This is my Rosetta stone of soup, a broth that can be transformed to meet a myriad nutritional needs, serving as everything from a delicious sipping tea to the powerful base for more hearty soups and stews. So no matter what a person’s appetite, it can provide a tremendous nutritional boost. This rejuvenating liquid, chock-full of magnesium, potassium, and sodium, allows the body to refresh and restore itself. I think of it as a tonic, designed to keep you in tip-top shape.

Veggie Lover's Pizza

This is one of my favorite new pizzas to make at home. It’s made of veggies and topped with veggies – what could be better? I start with the cauliflower pizza crust from The Detoxinista and load it with tasty toppings. It also has no artificial additives, yeast, or sugar that sometimes gets added to other gluten-free crusts.

Garlic Honey Mustard Greens

Garlic Honey Mustard Greens

Garlic Honey Mustard . . . isn’t that more like a topping for wings? Not when you’ve got mustard greens. I can’t resist them when I see them in the store or farmers market — bright yellow-green leaves, with delicate frilly edges and a spicy fresh smell. But the first time I brought them home, I couldn’t think of what to do with them, until I thought, “Well, honey mustard is one of my favorite flavors, so why not give that a try?” With zippy lemon and honey balanced with some fragrant browned garlic and earthy walnuts, this recipe is a lightly sweet take on greens I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do.

Pick Me Up Truffles

Pick Me Up Truffles

Whole food ingredients, date sweetened, healthy fats and proteins, taste reminiscent of a Snickers bar. No gluten, no dairy, no refined sugars, no nuts. Perfect for that time of day when energy begins to slump and the urge for something caffeine-y and/or sugar-y starts to kick in. I call it the 4pm hour.
