Whether you think probiotics are a healthy solution or not, there's no denying that there's a big stinky digestive health problem in the United States. Digestive health is not only a serious health issue, it’s a serious financial issue too. The direct medical costs associated with treating digestive health diseases (including GERD, diverticulitis and viral and intestinal cancers and infections) are astronomical. But before we get to that...I want to introduce you to someone important in history. Elie Metchnikoff. He’s the scientist who discovered probiotics in the late 1800′s. He is well known for pioneering research in the field of [...]

This isn't just about the Fuerte avocado. This is about history...and dinner! Read more... Earlier this week, I found these Fuerte Avocados at my favorite neighborhood market. I've been a fan of the Haas variety for a long time, but this was my first taste of the Fuerte...and my oh my. The texture is creamy just like the Haas, but with a nutty flavor so it's a great accompaniment to leafy greens, grains or dressing you'll make during the winter months...especially the recipe that follows. I learned that December and March is this avocado's natural season but unfortunately, if you [...]

These cabbage nori rolls are my raw food twist on the traditional sushi roll. Filled with fresh, raw veggies and a parsnip sun-dried tomato paté, then wrapped in nori and cabbage you'll want to make a few more for later. They are a great addition to any dinner party, or make a great appetizer to the rest of your "Asian" themed dinner. This recipe makes 6-8 rolls. Ideally, you'll need a vegetable peeler, a food processor, a small pot (for wilting the cabbage), a cutting board and a sharp knife. You can make them in less than 15 minutes (minus [...]

If you like to "do-it-yourself" and you like cabbage, then you'll love this DIY raw sauerkraut recipe. A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about pooping, probiotics and the importance of having a healthy gut, so instead of just talking the talk, I figured I'd take you on the walk with me. I think fermented foods are amazing and can be easily integrated into a daily meal plan. These days, probiotics come in various forms, including shelf stable probiotics, but there are also fresh probiotics including fermented milk products (yogurt, kefir, lassi) and fermented tea (kombucha), but I especially [...]
