Ginger Tahini Salad Dressing

I’ve been working on a trio of immune boosting salad dressings. So far, in our house, the oregano garlic dressing has been a hit. And this one with ginger and tahini, I have poured over shredded cabbage for a slaw and tossed with chopped raw broccoli and sliced almonds for a salad that is delectable. Next, I’ll be formulating a salad dressing with turmeric, yogurt and raw local honey! The ginger and tahini have immune boosting powers. Ginger is anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative. Tahini is a butter made from sesame seeds that are high in zinc, selenium, copper, iron, vitamin b6 and vitamin E. Ingredients: 2 inches or 5 T. frozen ginger root 3 T. tahini ½ C. Apple cider vinegar 2 t. Pink sa

Molly’s Chicken Wings (and other healthy replacements for unhealthy foods)

There are a lot of foods that are knee weakening delicious but they don't nourish your body. But, there is ALWAYS a better, more nutritious version of any food you love that may not love you back! My husband is a big fan of (restaurant) chicken wings. When I made my wings at home and he said they were his second best (second to a REALLY good place in Cincinnati Ohio, his home town) I thought I was on to something! Right off the bat, if you are cooking at home, your food will have less salt and sugar. You can also choose better meats (grass fed, free range, pasture raised) and fats (butter, ghee, lard, avocado oil, coconut oil) . My recipe uses the best wings I can find. When available, my f

SOAKED AND ACTIVATED NUTS. WHY??

Years ago was the first time I'd heard the term "activated nuts" and something about how they were better for your digestion. It was one of those things that I put away for a day and time that I was ready to incorporate another, new, healthy routine into my life. When I was ready, incorporated the process of activating nuts into my own routine. Not all the time but sometimes. Now I'll share it with you. The amount of nuts you'd like to activate is up to you. I like to do quite a bit so that I have enough to store and so that I don't have to do it often. You might have learned that raw nuts are better for you than roasted. I think the taste of a raw nut tastes very healthy, too healthy...hea

Chocolate Collagen Honey Bomb With Chocolate Bomb Sauce

This treat is a multi-purpose bite. It works when you have a sweet tooth. It can be a pre-workout fuel if you need to eat something before you workout. It is also post workout recovery! I came up with this because I like to follow the Paleo diet most of the time. It’s hard to find a paleo bar. There are some tasty one. There are also bars that use the label “PALEO” but use ingredients that aren’t paleo. To create my own paleo “bar”, I’ll put ingredients that sound good in a bowl, mash it up and call it a day! That method works with these ingredients. You can also take the extra step of packing the mixture in a four tablespoon ice cream/muffin scoop. I realize as I write this that that is p

What To Think About Fat?!?!?!

In the early 90’s, I would eat anything as long as it didn’t have fat. Licorice? Of course, it was labeled fat free! Bread? As long as I didn’t put butter on it. Diet cookies? They were marketed...I mean, made for me...full of sugar and zero fat. Potato chips with Olestra? Just once. Since the low fat/no fat craze decades ago, we have learned all about good fat and why having no fat was not a great idea. But...old habits die hard. So, in case you need reminding. Fat has essential fatty acids. Essential means something that the body cannot make itself. We need fat to absorb certain vitamins (A, D, E, K). It’s not a wonder I felt so sick through college...I was (as was a big portion of America
