Auntie Jovita’s Brazilian Cheese Bread

I remember first time I had Brazilian cheese bread. It was at a Churrasco restaurant in Dubai, and I ate so much I was barely able to have any meat after. They were so good. Since they are originally made with cassava flour and easy to make Plant Paradox compliant, I’ve been contemplating making them for a long time, but I’ve always been intimidated by the recipes that seemed rather complicated. Well, what I have here is a treasure, because is absolutely delicious, it takes 10 minutes to put together, and the recipe comes straight from Brazil. You guessed, from Auntie Jovita.

Lectin Free Avocado Salsa

Who is eating avocado daily? I do and sometimes I’m bored with all the classic ways of eating it. This morning, while reading the new Special Issue of National Geographic about Blue Zones and the science of living longer, I found this recipe of avocado salsa inspired by Loma Linda vegetarian cuisine (Loma Linda in California is one of the seven blue zones in the world, where people live the longest and healthiest lives).

Turmeric Sweet Potato

Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite foods, so tasty, nutritious and so many ways to cook it. Today I was trying to find a way to have some Turmeric Tonic, because I’m having a little bit of a sinus pressure, and Turmeric Tonic always helps, but I did not want a warm drink. So I decided to cook a small potato on the stove and add the turmeric elixir at the end.  Continue Reading…

The Ultimate Plant Paradox Meatloaf

If you look at Dr. Gundry’s new Food Pyramid, you will see meat is at the top of the pyramid, meaning is to be had sparingly and only from 100% pastured cows. But we all know real life beats theory, and if we have to feed a big family that is not yet completely into the plant paradox lifestyle, we need to find ways to work around it. So finding ways to hack classic comfort food and re-create healthier alternatives is my mission. This plant paradox meatloaf might sound like a heavy meal, but what if I told you more than half of it is made of vegetables? Continue Reading…

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast Three Ways

Plain chicken breast can be boring even if done right. But stuffed chicken breast, that’s another story and this spinach stuffed chicken breast is tasty and moist and so versatile. We had three totally different meals out of it and and all three were perfect. If your chicken is pastured raised and you use a plant paradox compliant cheese, the whole meal is a lectin free meal prep staple.

Turmeric Macaroni and Cheese with Macadamia Butter

Macaroni and cheese must be the ultimate comfort dish in many cultures, although is not something I had often growing up and I don’t feel the need to have it now. But, for the sake of experimenting and giving y’all some more kids (and adults) friendly recipes, I tried this version and it came out super tasty. This is a grain free macaroni and cheese, but is not dairy free because I used Parmigiano Reggiano and ghee. Which can be totally skipped if you want a complete dairy free option. For the macaroni I used the Ziti shirataki noodles from Miracle Noodle.

Happy Birthday Carrot Cake

Hello friends. This was my birthday cake, totally Plant Paradox compliant, grain and sugar free, lectin free and absolutely delicious. I’ve had my share of carrot cakes in my life, especially while living in Dubai, where for some weird reason, carrot cake was one of the most popular cakes around. I wanted to recreate something as good as the best carrot cake I can remember and I have to say I was pretty close. Continue Reading…
