Falafel with Israeli Cous-Cous Tabouli


The dish is complex and rich in middle eastern flavors.  The herbs and lemon in the tabouli give it a much needed freshness and earthiness.  The Israeli cous-cous adds a chew factor to the equation.  The falafel is crusty on the outside and soft inside and the yogurt bean sauce  gives a richness in flavor […]

The hardest part to this salsa is figuring out how to peel a mango. […]

Deviled Eggs – Paleo Style (The Unprocessed Version)

So, I love deviled eggs.  In fact, I could probably eat a dozen or so in a single sitting if you’d let me.  The problem is that the ingredients aren’t exactly “paleo” friendly nor are they unprocessed.  Sure, you could whip up some homemade mayo but who has the time for that? The solution? Deviled […]

What Eating Only Unprocessed Foods has Been Like

real unprocessed food

A few months back I made the decision to try to go completely unprocessed in terms of diet.  Truth be told, I didn’t formally make the leap until about 2 months ago.  But in these last 2 months, some of the changes have been surprising and others, not so surprising. For those that are new […]

(un)Natural Flavors in your Beef

I try to eat as natural as possible. In fact, most of the meats I buy are typically of the “organic” variety, partially because I believe that a cow that is pastured and that eats what they are supposed to eat (as in grass) is probably healthier than eating a cow that is born and […]

100% Unprocessed? My 1 year Challenge.

Here’s something I’ve been thinking about. What if you were NOT to eat any(or hardly any) processed foods over the next year?  How would it affect your body and mind?  Would you lose weight?  Would you have more energy? I know the answers to these questions because last year, I went “unprocessed” for roughly 2 […]

Cauliflower Rice – Kid Approved

Not the cauliflower rice I made but will post a picture on the next batch!

My wife and I were driving home from the gym last night and she asked me what was for dinner.   I had made some beef stroganoff sans the rice (making it paleo friendly).  I had also told her I was going to experiment with cauliflower rice as an alternative to noodles or rice.  To […]

Simplifying Food for Better Health

natural food

  About 5 years ago, my wife went down to our local Y for a “nutritional” class.  At the time, I kind of scoffed at this.  I had my own beliefs about food (everything in moderation) and exercise (run and work out hard).  I figured it was going to be yet another class on the […]

Green Thai Curry the Easy Way – Me vs. Food

Green Thai Curry

“That doesn’t look like curry,” my friend said as I was showing off my latest dish.  “It’s too pale”. “I can promise you….it’s fire on a plate.  And it’s greener than it looks” Thai food is  one of my guilty pleasures.  The only problem was that it was one of those cuisines that I never […]
