Cilantro is a super food full of healing properties and incredible phytonutrients. In addition to chelating heavy metals from the body, cilantro helps to build healthy skin and hair, and reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Cilantro also contains antimicrobial properties (this is likely why it’s been widely used in cooking for cultures in warmer climates, prior to the development of refrigeration).
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll notice that I often post photos of my healthy green […]

Salmon Wasabi Burgers are perfect if you adore spicy food, and enjoy the pungent, hot taste of wasabi and ginger. I make these spicy burgers with wild caught salmon and just a few other healthy ingredients, and serve them sans buns. When I do need a bun, I use lettuce or other greens as a serving vehicle for my burger recipes, and find that crispy Romaine lettuce works especially well. Boston, or bibb lettuce also works superbly for this purpose.
I serve these Salmon Wasabi Burgers with my Asian Cole Slaw recipe, the flavor combination is absolutely fabulous, and this is how I depicted these fish burgers in the photo above!

I first made this Spicy Chicken with Grilled Lime recipe for a Sunday night dinner when my in-laws were visiting. They were delighted by this easy chicken recipe and impressed with how quickly I was able to throw it together after we arrived home with them from a weekend in the mountains. The best thing about grilled chicken? The grill! As in no messy pans or baking dishes to clean up.

This Paleo Carrot Soup recipe with spicy ginger and rich coconut milk will warm you to the bone on a snowy day.
During the last year my husband and I were lucky enough to eat at the Post Ranch Inn in Northern California. We had an incredible meal which included a stunning salad as well as carrot ginger soup, and more. I spoke to our server to get an idea of what was in that amazing carrot soup so that I […]

Beat the summer heat with this refreshingly healthy green drink.
I have a new favorite green juice recipe. Although I’ve never done a full on green juice diet or green juice detox, I think that green juice has major benefits and drink it several days every week. I feel so healthy when I get a big bowl of vegetables into my diet, in liquid form, in addition to the veggies I eat all day long.
I found a mojito green juice recipe […]

Serve tangy Mustard Lime Chicken for dinner with a side of asparagus, or any other healthy green vegetable.
I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes for chicken breast, so I was mighty happy when a reader left this comment on my post for grilled Mustard Lime Chicken:
Fantastic chicken! Our son was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease about one month ago, and I have to tell you that your recipes have been such a help. We all loved the […]

Spicy ginger and tart lime team up to make a mean mocktail.
I don’t drink alcohol, however, I absolutely love fun, girly drinks in fancy glasses. Hence, this deliciously refreshing, non-alcoholic beverage that I am calling a Ginger Lime Mocktail. I think you could also call this sparkling zesty drink liquid superfood. The ginger is full of anti-oxidants, good for digestion and is also anti-viral and anti-fungal. The lime juice is packed with Vitamin C and bioflavanoids.
Today was our first beautiful […]

I’m thrilled to be a part of Pacific Natural Foods’ Everyday Chef Challenge! For the first round of the competition, $5 Dinners, Aggie’s Kitchen, Herbivoracious, A Savory Nest and I will be using a “secret” ingredient along with one of Pacific Natural Foods’ broth products *.
The secret ingredient for this round? Mushrooms. I used shiitake, though any type will work for the recipe below. And I have chosen to use their Organic Vegetable Broth.

Thanks everyone for your cupcake suggestions. The idea for these gluten free Coconut Key Lime Cupcakes came from comments left by sas and laura in my Jelly Donut Cupcake post –the post that launched my own personal month of cupcakes.
These gluten free cupcakes were a real winner with my children. Whenever I get out the icing bag, they go bonkers and yesterday was no different. I had to hold them back when they arrived home from school, so that I […]

½ cup agave nectar or honey
¼ cup lime zest (I use a microplane zester) (3-4 limes)
In a large bowl, whip the cream, agave and lime zest with a hand held mixer

I’m loving this gluten free, dairy free Strawberry Lime Shake made of fresh homemade coconut milk. My boys love it too. After I took a picture of the shake yesterday and placed it in the fridge, the boys grabbed it greedily and drank it all down. They have a certain penchant for consuming my photo shoots like that.
Here’s the recipe so you can make your own.
Strawberry Lime Shakeprint
1 ½ cups coconut milk
1 10-ounce package frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon lime juice, freshly […]

Take a look at the picture above. No, that’s not a floating grapefruit. If you look closely, you can see the tip of my younger son’s fingers lifting a grapefruit from the bowl of salad. This quick and easy (and of course gluten-free) salad is delicious anytime of year, though perfect right now as we approach the end of citrus season.
Kale Salad with Grapefruit
1 bunch kale
1 tablespoon olive oil
⅛ teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 grapefruit, […]

With baseball back in the picture and our afternoons filled with practices I find myself looking for quick entrees that offer a lot of protein without a lot of work. This Chipotle Lime Salmon is one of those. My husband loved it, pronouncing it blog-worthy after his first bite.

The other night while I was tucking in my super snuggly 10 year old into bed, we discussed possibilities for the next night’s dinner.
“Fennel” he suggested, “I really like it because it’s sweet and also very healthy!”
“What would you like for our protein dish?” I asked. “What about that roasted chicken I made the other night that you guys gobbled up?”
“No, something else, something sweet and sour,” he replied.
“Ok,” I said. “What about agave lime chicken?”
“Yum! That sounds great.” my […]

It’s too darn hot here to turn on the oven; the high today is supposed to get up to 100°. The solution? Fire up the grill and throw on some chicken breasts ever so briefly. The mustard lime chicken pictured above is a tangy hit of protein on a hot summer’s day.
I hope it cools off a bit tomorrow as my son plays in the finals of the little league tournament. His team (the “B” team […]
