High Protein Banana Oat Bran Muffins

I went to put on some bacon and realized that I would have to  make a run to the store (since there wasn’t enough for everyone to have 2 or three slices, and you KNOW how sizzling bacon gets people out of bed from a dead sleep), but I thought, now, let’s make some muffins…

Black Beans

Gotta love the beans and these beans are easiest to digest because of the overnight soaking and then slow cooking with kombu seaweed.  It helps remove the gas-producing properties, according to Dr. Weil, and I also know that adding kombu helps our overstressed thyroid and adrenal glands with the added iodine from the source that so many…

Breakfast Salad

Here was my concept this morning. In my quiet time I was writing out and processing all my feelings and then wrote up a salad idea, of which I eat for breakfast ever so often.      I sketched it out on my iPhone’s little notepad. Then made a little check box for myself and said,…

Cinnamon Pear Buckwheat Muffins

Simple ingredients equals rockin’ muffin nutrition.  They have just a hint of sweetness, plenty of protein, good carbs and chia fiber (thumbs up source of calcium) so that your blood sugar is stable, and you’re calm, which makes them a grab and go for the high functioning non-morning humanoid. Done the night before, keeps out the door a bit more stress free…

Pete’s Chicken Paprika

Since bone broths are all the rage now, I want to share a recipe that’s been in my husband’s family for years, with his twist and some of my allowed modifications according to him. This is a stewed chicken dish that has a reduced broth of intensified, melded chicken and pepper flavor with the kick…

Amaranth Chia Cherry Bowl

Amaranth is one of those grains that A Blood Types do well on…as well as those who don’t handle wheat and gluten all that famously. It is nutty in flavor.  For this recipe, I soak the amaranth and chia over night with the water (and leave it out on the stove, covered). Doesn’t take long,…

Sweet Potato Chorizo Hash

Sweet potato is considered paleo, did you not know? Ahhhh maybe because the word “sweet” is in it, you thought that might not be a good idea.  Sweet potatoes have so many benefits because they are a whole food.  Don’t get me started or you’ll starve before you ever get to the recipe. Serves 4-6….

Green Salad, Salmon, Egg and Brown Rice Lunch

A well rounded meal keeps up my mood, how about you?  This has a little something for all of that.  The Salad detoxifies, the salmon has great protein and omega 3’s for your well being (especially if it is wild caught) and the easy 11 minute steamed hardboiled egg will keep the hunger pangs away…

Greens, Beets, Artichokes and Avocado Salad

Greens, Beets, Artichokes and Avocado SaladWhat would detox be without salads?  Detox can be done all kinds of ways, but most of us don’t do very well without having something to crunch on now and then, and since veggies come cram packed with micronutrients, it’s basically a win win.  The most detoxifying veggies are the…

Berry Mint Blast Smoothie

This is a nice ending to a meal or between meal snack.  If you added your favorite protein powder then it would suffice as a meal.  It is creamy because of the avocado, and full of calcium because of the almond milk brand, and chia seeds, like 64% of your day’s supply.  Something about mint…

Oats, Seeds, Nuts and Baked Apples

One way to get lots of bang for your sugar buck is to bake or stew apples.  I also had some dental work done last week and I’m still eating on one side of my mouth, so I figured how to make the best of a not so great situation.  Baking or stewing the apples…

How do I know where to start with my detox?

     A detox can be a severe all or nothing “gotta get this perfect from the start “or it can simply include healthier items in your food choices every day.  The body does clean itself out as you crowd out your unhealthy habits and foods with healthier ones. As your body, brain and emotions get…
