Sweet and Sour Braised Red Cabbage

This is another Danish inspired recipe, super easy and although in Denmark is served mainly on special occasions, like Christmas, I don’t see why not having it more often. I personally love cabbage, any type, and I welcome new ways of cooking it. What I love the most in this braised red cabbage is the amazing flavors given by the spices used, especially cinnamon and cloves.

Cauliflower, Collard Greens and Spinach Creamy Soup

There are two easy ways to eat a lot of veggies at one time: smoothies and soups. Smoothies are a little restrictive, as you can’t make a collard greens and cauliflower smoothie, right? But soups, you can add any vegetables you want, cook and blend them and you get some creamy goodness. This lectin-free creamy soup, only plant based, it’s delicious and packs a lot of nutrients.  Continue Reading…

Citrus and Aniseeds Infused Olives

Let’s take one thing out of the way. I love olives. I’m obsessed with olives. This is a long time love affair, I’ve been obsessed with olives since I was a kid. I could eat so many of them it’s crazy. When I read the Plant Paradox book, at one point Dr. Steven Gundry makes this statement: “all olives are allowed”. That was the decisive moment for me, when I thought I could totally do this.

Grain Free Olive Oil Sesame Cookies

Not only these cookies are grain free but they are also egg and dairy free and of course, lectin free and Plant Paradox compliant and taste super good. Since I was using organic, Greek, extra virgin olive oil, I did a quick research on uses of olive oil in Greek cuisine baking. I found that olive oil is used for cookies, so I took it as a challenge to make a lectin free version of “Greek-like” olive oil cookies.

Healing Vegetable Soup with Kale and Broccoli Sprouts

September is here and so are my cravings for soups. But this healing vegetables soup was actually born from my attempt to pack as many power veggies as possible in just one easy to make and delicious dish. Smoothies, salads and soups are the three easiest ways to combine a big variety of ingredients and have them in one go, but soups must probably be also the easiest on digestion for everyone.

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…
