In Defense of Emotional Eating

"The problem of obesity and diet-related disease is not that we eat for comfort.  It’s that we eat junk for comfort and overeat it when we do.  The baby who turns to his mother’s breasts for food and comfort is getting a nutrient-dense source of life.  When we turn to fast-food we are getting nothing.  Hence the need to keep searching and keep eating.  It’s like going back to your Ex for comfort knowing full-well he or she has let you down every single time.  Time to replace the Ex, not swear off love altogether!
What if comfort food really did comfort?  What if it really did feed our bodies at the same time soothe our souls?  When you want to reach for the candy-bar, reaching for a piece of the darkest chocolate instead, takes intentionality.  But, we can relearn and our taste-buds are trainable.”

Avocadorotica: 5 New Ways to Pursue Your Lust for Avocados

"In the heat of the day, with no desire to prepare lunch, I walk over to Juan’s fruit stand for an ice-cold pipa (coconut water), a bag of plantain chips, a lime and an avocado. My hands carefully brush over the black bumpy skin in search of perfection—a score that’s not too soft, not too firm, just right and ready to eat. Juan watches me with trepidation that I might bruise some of his sacred stock. 
At a mere 500 colones a pop, which translates to roughly a dollar each, these babies are edible dreamboats. I crave the crunchy, creamy, salty meeting of a perfect avo with fresh chips made from the region’s abundant plantains.
But I’ve also found many more uses for the green super food, an ingredient I wouldn’t want to live without. Grown throughout Costa Rica, avocados are as delicious as they are teeming with nutrients. The fruit is a natural source of lecithin (a.k.a. brain food) and rich in minerals such as copper, which assists in red blood cell formation. See Healing with Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrition, by Paul Pitchford, for many more excuses to eat them.
Needless to say, I never miss a chance to satisfy my avocado love. I massage it into kale, add it to salads, smoothies, desserts and dips, and use overripe ones to moisturize my skin and hair—you can literally rub it all over yourself Here, five recipes to satisfy your own avocado obsession.”

Roasted Broccoli & Bacon Recipe

"Really tasty.  For variation, I think this dish tastes great with a bit of acid (a squeeze of lemon or a splash of your favorite vinegar) and/or a shower of microplane-grated parmesan cheese."

Battered Fish–Welcome back fish & chips and fish sticks!

"The batter recipe was a secret that I was one of the privileged few to know.  To be honest, I don’t actually remember what the secret ingredient was, but I seem to remember thinking it was very simple (I think the batter only had 4 or 5 ingredients).  Years (and years) later, when I went through a homemade fried fish phase, because I couldn’t remember the secret recipe any more, I made a different batter recipe, but one that I thought was just as tasty.  And while I’d love to claim that this recipe is inspired by the secret recipe I learned at the hole-in-the-wall chip shop, it’s actually the recipe I played with years later that inspired this paleo version.  This actually means the credit should go to my Uncle Bob who one day told me something to the effect of “homemade tempura batter is easy!  you just whip up some egg whites and add some corn starch”.  I don’t actually think this batter is that tempura like.  But it is very yummy!"

Dark Chocolate Shortbread Cookies (Sandies or Meltaways)

"These dark chocolate shortbread cookies were actually an accident. They were one of the variations that I came up with (#3 to be exact) while I was trying to create my Decadent Double Chocolate Cookies (Nut-free, Coconut-free, Egg-free).  My first thought was complete disappointment that the texture was so crumbly and melty and shortbread like, even more “short” than the two variations previous.  Man!  This recipe has two eggs in it!  How can it make a shortbread!  I was frustrated (I was trying to develop a chewy cookie after all).  However, the flavor was so good that I decided to shelf that variation for future recipe development.  And this is the result!   A super luxurious dark chocolate shortbread cookie.  Drizzled with homemade white chocolate.  Perfect!"

A Recipe: Fermented Hot Chili Sauce

"Fermented hot chili sauce – explosive with heat and teeming with food enzymes, beneficial bacteria, vitamin C and carotene.  Traditionally, all hot chili sauces were prepared through fermentation – and many of the world’s most renowned and well-loved sauces are still prepared through this time-honored technique of combining hot chilies with salt and allowing it to sit and brew away.  Both Tabasco sauce and sri ra cha are traditionally prepared through lactic acid fermentation – chilies, salt and time are the only absolutely necessary ingredients."

Paleo Shrimp-Stuffed Mushrooms

"I grew up eating Chinese dim sum, but I can no longer tuck into a basket of dumplings without feeling grossed out about the soy, vegetable oil, cornstarch and MSG in every bite. Thankfully, Paleo-friendly dim sum can be whipped up in a hurry. This recipe, from our best-selling Nom Nom Paleo iPad® app, is a great party dish ‘cause it’s simple, crowd-pleasing, and stealthily Whole30-compliant."
