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.

How to Reduce Your Risk of Cognitive Decline, According to Experts

For the most part, we take our brains health for granted. Even if we are on a health journey, we never think about the brain (or not in the past, anyway). We attend to all other organs of the body, not to the brain. But recently the brain health paradigm is changing.

The new paradigm is that cognitive decline is a lifestyle, autoimmune condition, with a complexity of root factors that need to be addressed. The bad news is that living a classic western lifestyle is most probably leading us to neurodegeneration, but the good news is that we can do something about it before it happens. And sometimes is as simple as changing your diet or making sure you sleep better. Sometimes is more complicated, that’s why I decided to gather all the information I came across so far and put it in this article in a form that easy to digest and to make you take action (I hope!). Disclaimer: these are not my personal opinions, these are conclusions taken by pioneers, scientists, medical experts who have studied cognitive decline in the past two decades.

Rutabaga, What Is It and How to Cook It?

rutabaga lectin free

Every single time I shop a rutabaga in Whole Foods, the cashier asks me what that is. The problem is that I can never pronounce it the way Americans do, so we always need a little time to figure out how to add it. The thing is I really love to cook with this root vegetable, also called ‘swede’ in Europe, so I wanted to share the ways I enjoy it.
