12 Steps to an Easier Plant Paradox Journey

When I started this article I had no idea was going to be that long. I thought I can stick to 10 steps, but it turns out, even with the 12 steps I didn’t manage to cover everything. I obviously believe in the power of food as medicine. I truly believe that we are what we eat. But, unless food is also our passion – we are chefs, foodies, food photographers, food producers etc – we should not build our life around food. I call this food freedom – even if I am a foodie, a food blogger and photographer and food is a big part of my life – I still consider food just a tool to keep me healthy so I’ll be able to live my best life and reach my potential.

Thyme Roasted Mushrooms with Millet Polenta

This simple yet delicious meal recipe was shared in my first newsletter, sent out last Friday, and since is almost time for the next newsletter, I share it here for easy reference. This meal was inspired by the October issue of Bon Appétit magazine. They always have great ideas for seasonal meals and I love making some of them Plant Paradox compliant.

Italian Almond Biscotti with Tigernut Flour

This lectin-free Italian biscotti is one of my favorite recipes. I used to love biscotti and I had to find a way to bake and eat them again and these are as good. Not too difficult to make, they can be prepared in advance, frozen and had whenever you feel like a crunchy treat. I even take them with me when I go on coffee or tea dates and I have friends who make them and do the same.  Continue Reading…

Lectin-Free Miso Ramen Soup with Shirataki Noodles

Miso Ramen soup was one of my favorite meals to have in Japanese restaurants but since I started the Plant Paradox lifestyle it’s not something I’ll be able to eat out anymore. So I decided to learn how to make it and enjoy it at home. This lectin-free miso ramen soup is easy to make if you have the essentials: the stock, the cooked chicken and the miso paste.

Romanian Style Beef Soup (Ciorbă de Văcuță)

You can take the girl out of Romania but you can’t take Romania out of the girl, they say (haha). One of the most iconic culinary habits in Romania, at least if you ask me, is having soup at every meal, except breakfast, but some people even do that (my dad used to).  So soup is one food I miss the most. I’ve been wanting to make one Romanian style soup for a while so today, after speaking with my sister and talking about Romanian food, I felt motivated and inspired to make a lectin-free version of the traditional Romanian beef soup.

Back To School. Six Lectin-Free Lunch Box Ideas (Part 2)

This article is a continuation of my first lunch box feature (Part 1), which is linked below. I started this feature because I always get requests from parents for ideas of meals for their children. I also know that is hard to come up with new meals every day, and keep it healthy and nutritious at the same time. These lunch boxes are lectin-free because that happens to be the lifestyle I follow, but beyond the labeling they are just ideas of healthy food choices for your kids (and for you too).

Sea Vegetables Chicken Salad with Miracle Noodles

This salad was born when I discovered the Sea Tangle Mixed Sea Vegetables in Whole Foods. I’m not sure if this is available in other stores, but I’m sure you will find some sort of compliant sea vegetables elsewhere. Just make sure they have no weird ingredients added, they should only need salt. This is easy to put together and works as dinner but also can be packed for a workday lunch.
