A few months ago I was feeling some anxiety. I was not sleeping, becoming agitated easily, and my stress levels were noticeably elevated. This was unfamiliar to me as I have always had a calm demeanor. Maybe it was the pandemic or a big event that was in the near future. A few weeks later, an article caught my attention of a professional athlete that I follow on social media.
Healthy comfort food. Sounds impossible, right? Getting creative with ingredients is a great way to adapt any recipe to create something that is delicious, satisfying, and nutritious. I love taking classic dishes and using lots of fresh herbs and vegetables to add more flavor. This Zucchini Lasagna is an excellent example of that, and also happens to be paleo, gluten-free, and vegan!
Breaking down what actually is on those food labels and how they can help you to meet your nutrition goals.
Inviting over a group of guests always sounds like fun. Feeding a big group can send even a calm cook into panic mode. “Stress levels naturally run a bit higher when you’re having a party! Planning is the key to alleviating a lot of anxiety, and if you have a great time, your guests will, too.
This has always been one of my favorite vegan dishes to make for potlucks as it’s a great plant-based dish everyone will like. Being from Southern California ceviche is a dish that makes me think of sitting outside in the heat and enjoying a nice cooling dish. Hearts of palm is a very sustainable product and has a great salinity like fish. Enjoy this dish with crispy tortilla chips, sliced cucumber, sliced jicama, or just by itself! Feel free to add other veggies or spice up with your favorite hot sauce. This is a very versatile dish, and many items can be substituted.
Success is often defined by numbers. How much has your business grown? What income bracket are you in? How much weight have you lost? What if I told you that the most valuable success cannot be quantified?
I love fall. Who doesn't appreciate a new season and even in southern California, where the change may be subtle, I notice a slight coolness and a inimitable fragrance in the air at night. Maybe it's the eucalyptus blowing in the warm Santa Ana winds that get me. In regards to all things culinary, it's exciting to welcome the beautiful fruits of the fall. Winter squash can be so versatile from utilizing in lasagnas to tacos, it's perfect for a vegetarian/vegan palate, and can even satisfy the carnivore with some varieties having a meaty texture.
Shakshuka is the breakfast your day is missing! It's dairy-free, grain-free and fully customizable to your tastes. Here's the perfect started recipe and then let your culinary intuition take over.
Are you afraid to cook fish? I hear people say that a lot. It's not that difficult. When purchasing fish, make sure it's fresh and I suggest cooking it the same day as you purchase. This dish is a favorite of mine. Halibut is an easy fish to cook, it can get pricey so any firm white fish will do. I sear the filet in a hot pan to obtain a nice crust and finish it off in the oven. The sauce is a staple in my kitchen as it is very versatile. The tomatoes cook down to a saucey almost melted consistency and the more garlic the better. It's great for pasta and you can add anything to it, herbs, olives, capers are great too. I've even used it as a spread for sandwiches!! So, Don't let cooking fish intimidate you. Give it a try and impress your friends.
