As a license acupuncturist part of my job is to teach my patients about the value of preventative medicine in maintaining their health & wellness.  Good nutrition is imperative towards this goal.

I am a big believer that you can do this and have it be simple, inexpensive satisfying and taste wonderful!

Chocolate Zucchini Brownie

This is a Zucchini Brownie recipe that I have made for my, shall we say, non-healthy eating friends.  And they never knew that not only did it have zucchini,  it has no flour in it.  It is moist and chocolatey and dee-lish!!!

ENJOY!!

Cauliflower, Coconut oil, Ginger, Turmeric Stew

This delicious stew is perfect for vegetarians or meat eaters. And it’s full of healthy fats! Comforting and warm, add in some chicken or tofu for extra protein.

This soup promotes blood circulation and boosting the immune system, harmonizing and warming the digestion, Reduces inflammation and supports tissue healing and repair.

Chia Seed, Almond Butter & Almond Meal Cookies

These cookies are so chewy and good.  Of course, I've had to augment them by either adding almond flavoring, dried fruit and / or a demi-dip in some dark chocolate.  I also love this website for Paleo recipes.

Fermented Wheat-free Tortillas

I make these beauties with Mung Bean (good for nourishing the blood) and Quinoa (a nice high protein grain).  I've made them with cinnamon and eaten them as pancakes as well as added savory herbs to use for sandwiches.

 

Greens with Eggs & Sweet Potatoes

According to TCM, spring is the season of the liver and the gallbladder. These organs are in charge of regulating a smooth and soothing flow of energy throughout the whole person (body and mind).  Living in accordance with the shift of the seasons can benefit your health in many ways. The wisdom of TCM dates back thousands of years, but it’s just as important today as ever. 

Bitter foods like dandelion greens will help support your

liver.
