My Favorite Spring Recipe: Omega Yogurt Berry Popsicles

My Favorite Spring Recipe: Omega Yogurt Berry Popsicles

  Spring is quickly transitioning into summer here in Colorado–YAY!–and one of my all-time favorite snacks (and pregnant cravings) is yogurt, fresh berries and honey. I love this recipe that I found from Dale Pinnock’s book Healing Foods. He takes my favorite ingredients and makes them into simple, medicinal recipes that I often recommend to my friends and patients. Pinnock’s “Omega Mania Ice Lollies” are an excellent spring / summer treat to easily up your omega intake. Plus, this recipe includes my main criteria for a good recipe: no cooking. đŸ˜‰   Why increase your omegas?   Omega fatty acids (like fish oil or flax seed oil) are wonderful for balancing your hormones and mood, producing radiant skin, shiny hair, and strong nails, boosting fertility, supporting a healthy pregnancy, and so much more. Yogurt nourishes Kidney yin in Chinese medicine, which plays a huge role in women’s fertility, as well as improves digestion due to its probiotic content.

Healthy, Easy, Divine Chocolate Macaroons

  Hellooooooo! What an honor to be guest blogging for my beautiful wife, Josie. Valentine’s Day is her favorite day and chocolate is serious business, too. So you know these must be damn good.

Let me clarify, that’s local, unrefined honey and organic, virgin, unrefined coconut oil if you want to keep it as classy and healthy as possible. IMPORTANT: Keep the heat as low as you can so you don’t damage the enzymes in the honey. As soon as this...

Holiday Blog Series: My Favorite Winter Salad Recipe

Holiday Blog Series: My Favorite Winter Salad Recipe

  I always find it more difficult in the winter months to make sure I’m getting enough fresh veggies in my diet. I seem to crave mostly warm, cooked meals, and the thought of a salad makes me chilly. However, the other day I stumbled on this combination that had just the right amount of heartiness for winter.   Josie’s Winter Salad: A few handfuls of baby spinach leaves (pre-washed makes it super easy!) Handful of dried cranberries (not sweetened with sugar) 1/2 can of  drained “Salad Beans” (garbanzo, kidney and white beans) 1/4 fresh avocado, cubed A few thin slices of red onion to taste Bragg’s Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette (or make your own dressing using 2 parts olive oil, 1 part balsamic vinegar and add minced ginger and sesame seeds.)   Other delicious variations: Try tossing in some cooked quinoa, wilting (quickly steaming) the spinach, adding feta goat cheese, tofu, chicken and/or nuts.   Registration opens next week for my popular online nutrition program where I share many...
