Nothing like a great Summer Squash dish in Season!

Summer Squash Gratin

Amy No Comments

This week at Insti­tute for Inte­gra­tive Nutri­tion, or IIN, as I fond­ly think of it, we are learn­ing all about Ayurvedic Med­i­cine. It still amazes me how much wis­dom and knowl­edge there is to be found in ancient ide­olo­gies like Ayurvedic Med­i­cine and Tra­di­tion­al Chi­nese Med­i­cine. In our West­ern world, we’ve often been taught to think these ways of life are prim­i­tive and infe­ri­or to our West­ern Med­i­cine tech­nolo­gies and devel­op­ments. Not to say that West­ern Med­i­cine hasn’t brought many great advance­ments Read more […]

For some of you it may be start­ing to look and feel like Fall, but here in Cal­i­for­nia it still feels like Sum­mer to me! Vis­it your local Farmer’s Mar­ket to take advan­tage of all the deli­cious end of Sum­mer pro­duce for this bright and cleans­ing Sea­son­al Sum­mer Kale Sal­ad. You can even exper­i­ment with the dif­fer­ent vari­eties of kale they have to offer. For this sal­ad, I used a com­bi­na­tion of my two favorites- Curly and Pur­ple Kale.

Simple Sesame Stir-Fry

One minor adjust­ment I’ve been mak­ing to my rou­tine these last few weeks with IIN is con­tin­u­ing to add more and more veg­eta­bles into my diet in order to crowd out or reduce the amount of ani­mal prod­ucts I’m eat­ing. Don’t get me wrong, I already eat a ton of veg­eta­bles com­pared to the aver­age Amer­i­can diet, but we can always use more. As you may know, Paleo could mean eat­ing tons of meat with the most pop­u­lar cur­rent trend idol­iz­ing bacon, but it cer­tain­ly doesn’t have to.

Bacon adds depth to this delicious green bean salad

Green Bean and Radish Salad with Parsley Buttermilk Dressing

Amy No Comments

These hot August days con­tin­ue to call for cool­ing Sum­mer sal­ads! This green bean and radish sal­ad with creamy pars­ley dress­ing is a great dish on its own or as a side dish for siz­zling Sum­mer BBQ fare. Bring it to a pic­nic or potluck, or host your own end-of-Sum­mer din­ner par­ty and pair it with my Paleo Slow-Cook­er Baby Back Ribs or Spinach-Dip Stuffed Chick­en. The orig­i­nal recipe calls for yel­low wax beans, which would be fan­tas­tic to the eye and your taste buds, so if you’re lucky enough to find Read more […]

My obses­sion with Mediter­ranean food is no secret! In gear­ing up for my incred­i­ble Mediter­ranean back­pack­ing adven­ture, I’m enjoy­ing some deli­cious Paleo Mediter­ranean cui­sine right at home. Along with the Lime-crust­ed Tilapia with Cit­rus Sal­sa, this Paleo ver­sion of Tab­bouleh had me day­dream­ing of enjoy­ing this meal on a patio under the sun with the Mediter­ranean sea breeze blow­ing across my face. Next month that will be a real­i­ty!!! In the mean­time, I will con­tin­ue to enjoy all of the fresh ingre­di­ents Read more […]
