Food in times of Coronavirus… A recipe, vegan, affordable, nutritionally dense

To be honest, I didn’t want to use the word “Coronavirus” in my article, because I’m never the one to write my articles based on dumb SEO rules… I just want my posts to be short and sweet, to the point, informative and easy to navigate. But today, really, I don’t know what else to write. I can’t even give a name to this recipe. All I see and hear and think about is this (see, I won’t use the name again, I promise).

Greens and Sweet Potato Hash Bowl

Lately I’ve been eating out more than usual, in a place in Dallas called Origin. They are Plant Paradox friendly, although I’m not sure they are aware what the Plant Paradox is. They have these bowls that you can personalize and the one that works for me is half plain sweet potato hash, half Brussels sprouts. I also add some fresh arugula, and sometimes grass-fed hanger steak or pasture-raised eggs. So I created this bowl at home, with my adds-on I wish I could find in a restaurant. The result was delicious.

Kohlrabi Chicken Soup with Lemongrass and Ginger

I have been having my eye on kohlrabi for quite some time, and I have been exploring different ways to cook it and eat it. In my new cookbook I have a recipe for kohlrabi fritters, and I enjoy eating it raw as part of my raw veggie platters. But this soup must be my favorite so far. Not only this soup is lectin-free, but it is also low histamine.

Reintroducing Beans. Three Easy and Delicious Recipes

After 2.5 years following the plant paradox program, I finally reintroduced beans and legumes and I’m having fun. I don’t seem to have reactions to beans if properly prepared, but we did notice that my husband doesn’t tolerate lentils even if soaked and pressure cooked. This to say, reintroductions, whatever they are, are bio-individual and different from case to case; and the best way to find out is to try. If you feel you are at that point, here there are few ideas on how to prepare black beans, Lima beans and chickpeas to significantly lower their lectin load. Plus, three ideas and recipes for how to incorporate them in your daily menu. They are all as lectin-light as possible and low hisatmine, if you tolerate beans.

Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Pesto

lectin free

I used to eat a whole roasted cauliflower in a restaurant here in Dallas. However, I just found out that their pesto had cheese, so all this time I thought I’m not eating dairy, I was actually, every time I was going to this restaurant (fortunately, not that often). So I’m going to start making my own whole roasted cauliflower and sharing the recipe with you, because is delicious and super simple to make.

Instant Pot Beef Taco Bowl with Tostones

lectin-free

I’m finally falling in love with my Instant Pot. I love it for the convenince when having to cook this type of meal. A steak cooks unattended until super soft while I prepare the rest of the ingredients. And since I’m not a planner, a fast cooking device suits me much better than a slow cooker. We rarely can decide what we are going to eat a few hours in advance. This taco bowl is delicious, healthy, lectin-free and with few modifications, low-histamine.

Instant Pot Oxtail with Root Vegetables and Horseradish

With the arrival of the cold season and shorter days, I felt the need for more warming and grounding meals. It’s still summer in Dallas, but I can smell fall in the air and I think my body is in tune with the change of seasons, regardless the temperatures in Dallas. This is a simple lectin-free and low histamine meal made in an Instant Pot, ready in one hour from start to finish, and we all know that the Instant Pot cooking time is time you can use to do something else.
