Carrot Ginger Soup

In cold and flu season, keeping your vitamin A status up is most important. There’s plenty in liver (paté for instance) but there’s a ton of vitamin A precursor (beta-carotene) in carrots. Each serving of this soup provides over 16,000IU of vitamin A as beta-carotene in an ‘easy to swallow’ form! Delicious! Serves 4 to…

Covid-19’s Silver Lining

We’ve long held it as true that one of the best things people can do for their health is to spend more time in their own kitchens — e.g. cooking at home with ingredients you know and trust. And this week and next (and how much longer we don’t know) as we hunker down as…

Sunshine – Vitamin D and Immune Health

The recent global outbreak of covid-19 (aka Coronavirus) has the public on edge, and rightly so since at present there isn’t an effective vaccine available to prevent it or as yet an anti-viral medication to kill it, although the Coronavirus Task Force assures us those are being fast-tracked on the way.  More than 80,000 people…

Perfection on a plate! The perfect…

The world’s best guacamole

What better way to enjoy a summer barbecue than with some really good fat?? Maybe some baby back ribs or brisket or pork belly sliders? And some slaw? But whatever your pleasure, there’s always room for the piquant fave — guacamole! Here’s our long-time family recipe. Holy Guacamole! Serves 4 INGREDIENTS ½ red onion, peeled…

Avo Mayo

I love mayonnaise. Always have. But, as I’ve written before, I find most of what populates store shelves unacceptable — filled with partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil or soybean or some other equally wretched seed or vegetable oils. And so I have tended to make my own for the last many years, using EVOO, avocado oil,…

Paleo Soups & Stews

OK, my new favorite paleo cookbook arrived in the mail today: Paleo Soups & Stews, the newest offering by Simone Miller of Zenbelly fame, who began her culinary career as a ‘soup line cook’. I’m a huge fan of soup and have quite a collection of low-carb and paleo soups and stews in my own…
