This vegan, plant based dish is a great substitute for a meat. Grilling the mushroom brings the familiar grilled flavor and combines with the hearty texture of the mushroom to fully satisfy your tastebuds!
One of Chef Courtney's culinary specialties is cooking for the keto diet. She has honed her knowledge and expertise in this area and has come up with a proven weight loss diet. In fact, she currently is cooking for a client who has lost 15 pounds in 2 months while on this diet!
I just love the Fall season. The beautiful warm colors bring me such excitement and joy. Where families start to celebrate the holidays. Who says you can’t do plant-based in the Fall?
Butter can be a point of tension when starting a new diet. If you're going dairy-free or reducing fat, but you need butter for cooking or baking, what can you do? Chef Rebecca has crafted a butter-less butter recipe that is so tempting and desirable, people are making the switch regardless of diet choices!
Most people have in mind when the new year begins it means starting fresh or lets start that diet and change our habits. The easiest way is to start small. Take baby steps. Your changing your way of eating long term not short term. Here are some easy steps to follow to get you on track:
1. Drink water instead of high sugar drinks – Stay away from carbonated drinks and stick with water
2. Try to eat healthy meals at home instead of going out to eat – eating clean at home is healthier than heading to a restaurant where not-so-healthy ingredients are used
3. When grocery shopping, read labels – make sure your not buying ingredients with additives
4. Use smaller plates – make sure you're controlling your portions and not eating more than what is recommended
What if I told you there was something you could do to decrease your depression, level out your mood swings, get better sleep, lose weight, fight disease and improve your overall health? Most of us would spend loads of money on whatever pill we had to take to get these results, am I right? Now what if I told you that the change is totally free? Too good to be true! What’s the catch? The catch is there is nothing you can add to medicine cabinet that could help you to achieve all of these results. It isn’t anything you can add at all, but something you must give up. Sugar. I know, now you’re thinking, “Great another health nut here to preach about diet fads”, but bear with me. I am not here to preach at all, simply to let you know that if you are struggling with depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, disease or weight issues (I think I just described the entire population of America..) Sugar could be the cause of some, or all, of these symptoms.
“I’m trying to be healthier. But being healthy means cutting SO much out of my diet, it’s impractical! So, what the heck CAN I eat?”
A lot! There are so many options that are actually delicious and easy to make...once you get the hang of it. And, it can be fun to find foods that not only add to your health, but taste amazing! I really have enjoyed the creativity of recreating recipes of some of my favorite comfort foods, in a healthy way.
Transitioning into an organic, whole food diet can take time to get used to. If doing it all at once is too much, make small changes little by little.
Do the Holidays mean “Automatic Weight Gain” to You? If they do, you are among the many who simply accept that they’ll gain 10 to 20 pounds during the next two months. I want to point out that it doesn’t need to happen to you! You may want to consider just WHY those sweets and other delicacies, not normally available to you during the rest of the year, are too tempting to pass up at this particular time.
Cumin seed, the essential Indian spice that is an exotic addition to several dishes. I add this spice to my dish not only for an amazing flavor, but also for one of the many health benefits; cumin seed can assist you in weight loss.
Add a teaspoon of cumin seed to a glass of water and bring it to boil. Once the water changes color to brown, turn the stove off. Let it cool and pour yourself a glass of this delicious water. If your goal is to lose weight have an 8 ounce glass of this in the morning and again before dinner.
Today I want to talk about collagen. Unfortunately, as we age our bodies get depleted of so many nutrients and other vitally important things that keep us moving and happy with ourselves. Lacking in collagen hits home in a big way for me because I’ve always had beautiful skin, people have always commented on my skin, and now it’s what I dislike most about myself when I look in the mirror. I’ve been looking closely for a supplement to help me restore the collagen levels I need to improve elasticity, vibrancy, and hydration. I came across the top 10 collagen killers, which I will talk about, but first, here are some facts about collagen from Dr. Axe:
