Homemade Raw Sauerkraut

  Hello dear readers, Well another season is blazing by – Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving is upon us in less than two weeks. This morning I ordered my gluten-free pie crust from Bacano Bakery and perused the beautiful sugar-pie pumpkins at the farmers’ market. The weather is finally chilling in California and […]

Chocolate Quinoa Coconut-Almond Bars

Thank you to all who posted website links and ideas for candida-diet recipes this past month.  I especially enjoyed the Ricki Heller blog Diet, Dessert & Dogs. Some creative and original ideas there!  It has been a challenge, but my husband is now in phase II (Woo-hoo!). Here’s a quick, easy dessert I came up […]

Chicken In a Pot With Eggplant

    Last week my husband was diagnosed with candidiasis, an overgrowth of the harmful yeast candida albicans, after having issues with constrictions of his esophagus.  Now, in addition to avoiding gluten, dairy and sugar, he has to cut out all carbohydrates for 5-6 weeks.  That leaves pretty much meat and vegetables!  He was certainly […]

  Before we say goodbye to asparagus season and while it is still abundant, I thought I would pass along a delicious and creative way to use more of it.  I had some leftover salmon and roasted asparagus the other night, so guess what went in my eggs in the morning?  It’s also a great way to […]

Raw Asparagus & Kale “Guacamole” Salad

  I’ve been on a raw food kick lately.  I started doing yoga again a couple of weeks ago and really feel motivated to detox.  But forget special detox diets and supplements – the best way to do that is to juice regularly and incorporate more raw foods in your diet, especially fruits and vegetables.  […]

Sesame Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  Lunch is usually my least complicated meal of the day.  Easy preparation, little clean-up.  Usually I make a simple salad with whatever greens and veggies I have from the farmers’ market, add some beans or smoked turkey, and top it with some variety of nuts and an olive-oil/lemon dressing.  Today, Friday, was the last day […]
