10 Minute Meals
This is an easy weeknight meal. It will take about 20 minutes to prepare, not including the time to bring the meat to room temperature. It is a good way to prepare a fattier cut of lamb, like shoulder, or some lamb stew meat, without having to cook it for a long time. Cooking [...]
My new adventure. As you might have noticed from my previous posts I have embarked into a new adventure…a ketogenic diet! As I want to use this diet both for therapy and for weight loss with my patients, I have been doing it myself, and researching like crazy. I still have tons to learn, but [...]
Living in the inland area of the Sierra Nevada Foothills, fish is not exactly local food, with the exception of sweet water fish form the local streams and the Sacramento river. As we do not fish, my choices are two: wait for a generous donation from a fisherman friend or go buy some. FEW POINTS [...]
I have been mulling for a few weeks about starting a detox. As you might or might not know I work for a nutritional practice where we do a lot of it (It is the A in the ABC of nutrition!). We use the Purification Program, which is an amazing program created by Standard Process, [...]
I know when it comes to Asian foods, the Thai Coconut Soup is a favorite of many people.

Mineral Chicken broth is one of those magical medicinal foods that just so happen to taste great and be really useful in the kitchen as a base for all kinds of recipes!
It’s not over! even though we are heading into Spring, it seems like Flu season is far from over. People around me are getting sick by the dozen, and I was very proud of myself to have dodged the germs….until yesterday! I REALLY hate getting sick, and when the first symptoms arise all my alarm [...]
It’s Winter…everywhere except here in California! We have been having this really wonderful days, 70 degrees and blue skies, which would be great except the horrible drought that is plaguing us. For this reason our Farmers Market has been almost totally depleted of vegetables. Between the extreme frost of December and the dryness, barely anything [...]
