Tempeh Salad With Miso-Dijon Dressing

  In my recent quest to increase my iron intake, I have been eating a lot more meat.  Now in addition, I am trying to increase my estrogen level, which my acupuncturist told me is a bit low.  The first food that comes to mind when it comes to plant estrogen is soy, which is very high in […]

Wild Salmon-Salad

  The great news I had this week is that I got my latest lab work back and my iron shot way up to mid range after only a month, the B-vitamins are perfect and the white blood count numbers are half-way to normal.  My accupuncturist said that she could tell that the jump in […]

Apple-Turnip Chicken Salad

  Last week I got these beautiful turnips at the farmers’ market.  I love a crisp, ripe white turnip and could just eat it raw – they are so sweet!  These were great because the greens were in good shape so I used them to make juice in the morning and then I tossed a […]

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.  […]

Trader Joes’ Marinated Three-Bean Salad (and other healthy lunch options)

Cranberry Wild Rice & Buckwheat Salad

  Did you know that wild rice is not actually rice at all, but it is a seed-bearing grass that grows in marshes and shallow waters in the Midwestern United States?  Despite its name and resemblance to traditional rice, it is not in the same family.  It is however very nutritious – high in protein, […]

Tomato Cucumber Cilantro Salad

  Walking through the farmers’ market in late July and August, one cannot miss the signs that it is tomato season in California.  Everywhere you turn there are piles of ripe, organic tomatoes – bright red, yellow, orange ones, multi-colored heirlooms, cherry and grape tomatoes, you name it.  This is one of my favorite times […]
