Prosciutto Wrapped Artichoke Hearts

This one sheet pan easy meal was born from another attempt to find ways to eat artichokes. I don’t know about you, but those artichoke hearts – frozen or from a jar – are not exactly the tastiest thing you can eat, and I’m a little bothered by texture. But these prosciutto wrapped artichoke hearts might be the best way to eat them.

Brussels Sprouts Salad with Pecans and Basil Vinaigrette

This is a lectin-free, plant based salad inspired by a salad I ate in a restaurant and really liked. Shaved Brussels sprouts make great salads, and if you don’t feel like doing the work yourself, you can buy them already cut (what I did). Roasted pecans, basil vinaigrette and few optional adds-on make this an easy and nutritionally dense, lectin-free  lunch or dinner.

Italian Style Mustard Greens and Sweet Potato Soup

Mustard greens are not something you easily find in stores, especially if you shop at small stores like I do, but you most probably find a vendor selling mustard greens at the farmers market. We went to Dallas farmers market on Saturday and found a super nice lady from whom I bought the mustard greens, some small and super delicious carrots and a big bunch of daikon radishes with the greens on.

Nine Lectin-Free, Grain-Free Healthy Wraps

Let’s start this one by saying that tacos must be the most loved food in the world. And I think that besides the taste of a good taco, the reason people love them is the experience of eating them. When eaten at home, it can be a fun sharing experience, and everyone can add their fillings and toppings of choice. And I don’t know about y’all, but I love eating food with my hands. Of course, there are many other popular foods that requite a wrap or a base, such as hot dogs, burgers, rolls or sandwiches. This list includes my favorite lectin-free, grain-free wraps and my favorite ways to use them. They are a blessing if your are following the Plant Paradox lifestyle.

Mushrooms and Napa Cabbage Miso Stir-Fry

I think one of the most important things for my health I learned by adopting The Plant Paradox way of eating (and living) is how to eat more veggies and how to look for creative ways to incorporate greens and vegetables into my diet. And contrary to what some may believe, my diet is now way more diverse than it was before eating the Plant Paradox way. Creating lectin-free recipes is fun and healthy.

Five-Spice Pork Belly with Cauliflower Rice and Broccoli Sprouts

Recently I asked for feedback on Instagram about what you ladies and gentelmen will love to see more on my website in the new year, and some of you asked for more Chinese inspired dishes. I love Asian inspired food, but we all know it is close to impossible to eat Plant Paradox compliant in an asian restaurant. So I made it a mission to create more lectin-free asian inspiried recipes.
