Asian-inspired cuisine has always been a delight to my taste buds. Unfortunately, most Asian restaurants use substandard ingredients and lots of additives, so unless I make something at home or come across a rare gem of a restaurant I hardly ever eat this kind of food.
With this in mind, I recently decided to make some ginger salmon and add as much Asian flare that I could think of.
In case you’re wondering, I try to eat at least 4 fish-based meals per week. This allows me to obtain a healthy dose of Omega 3’s without supplementing. If it’s a good week I’ll get 6-8 meals in. A lot of people question whether or not they should supplement with Fish oils. I think if you’re eating wild caught fish at least 4 meals per week, then you likely don’t need to supplement. Unless you’re looking to get out of a flare, lose more than 20 pounds of fat, or dealing with neurodegenerative problems. This could always change but it appears to be a good guideline at this point.

If you didn’t carve up all your pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, it’s time to cook with them. And what better to do than make a big pot of deliciousness that you can eat for days (or easily feed a family of five).
There’s a six-week span every year in which I’m thinking pumpkin everything. Pumpkin bacon? Yes, Whole Foods has it (I saw it there yesterday). Pumpkin pie? I can’t wait! I’ve been seeing some recipes making their rounds (thanks Wellnessmama), so my engineering brain thought what the heck? Why not pumpkin chili? Let’s see if we can add some spice and take it to the next level. [click to continue…]
When life gives you lemons make lemonade… right? Well how about an SCD frittata.
I tried to help save the environment by only taking one paper bag at the grocery checkout (forgot my re-useable ones). When the bag guy handed it to me, I got a bad feeling in my stomach – it was super heavy.
I returned home, and as soon as I got out of my car, a dozen pasture-raised eggs smashed on the concrete as the bag broke.
Bummer right? Well, when life hands you a problem like a digestive issue, or cracked eggs, you are faced with two choices – do nothing, or take action. As I stood there gazing down at a bunch of cracked eggs I racked my brain for an answer…why not a frittata?! [click to continue…]
You scream. I scream. We all scream for ice cream!
SCD legal ice cream that is.
That tastes amazing and heals your body, instead of adding inflammation and toxins. It might sound too good to be true… but it’s not.
And shockingly, you’ll see it’s almost all fat. Which is why it’s so healthy. Our bodies need loads of fat, cholesterol and fat soluble vitamins to properly heal. And why not consume it via ice cream? [click to continue…]
As I’m writing this… it’s 95 degrees in Montana.
