10 Ingredients You Definitely Don’t Want in Your Skin Care

42160348_m-750x500

Every once in awhile, I get the urge to walk into a convenience store and nonchalantly browse the skin care aisles. I pick up a plastic bottle with some pseudo-fancy label claiming to have discovered a purer form of collagen or some advanced wrinkle-eraser ingredient. I put myself in the shoes of the consumer and think, “I’m sold!”

But these companies don’t fool me.

Instead of falling for these sneaky marketing ploys and getting captivated by words that promise me beautiful skin, I simply turn over the bottle and read the label. After scanning several lines of ingredients and vowel-heavy words that I can’t pronounce, I wonder if consumers have the same reaction as I do when I think about applying these formulas to my precious skin. I wonder if consumers are even reading the labels to begin with? Read More…

Recipe: Herb Encrusted Pork Tenderloin

Herb-Encrusted-Pork-Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin is flavorful, tender and easy to prepare. It accommodates different flavor profiles and side dishes. It transforms into lovely, deceptively fancy-looking medallions. We’re going to make a seared, savory tenderloin!

First of all, acquire some amount of pork tenderloin. Tenderloins come in various sizes, of course – most likely you’ll find them in the pound-and-a-quarter range; a tenderloin of this size will provide a round of porky deliciousness to three reasonably hungry adults if you pair it with some other stuff, especially if that stuff is edible and not a fistful of dryer lint. Then again, it will leave no leftovers for those adults, which might be a problem, since it’s going to taste very good. What I am trying to say here is that you might want two tenderloins if you’re feeding more than two people. Decide for yourself.

Recipe: Paleo Pumpkin Bread

image

Nothing screams “fall” like the smell of fresh pumpkin bread wafting from the oven. This lusciously moist, gluten free, grain-free and dairy free Paleo pumpkin bread is made with almond flour. Happy Halloween!

I want to enjoy pumpkin bread as much as the next person, but without a gluten bomb in my stomach. I don’t know about you, but when I eat gluten, I feel like I ate a brick. Solve that gluten sensitivity problem with a loaf of Paleo pumpkin bread made with high protein almond flour!

Canned pumpkin puree often lends a raw, metallic flavor to pumpkin bread. I prefer using all fresh ingredients and roasting fresh pumpkin. Yes, it doubles the time it takes to make the bread, but it will taste so much better! And you can roast some extra pumpkin and eat it for dinner. Read More…

Recipe: Pumpkin Seed Pesto

Pumpkin-Seed-Pesto-Recipe

Here is a rich and delicious pesto recipe using pumpkin seeds, fresh herbs and sun-dried tomatoes. It makes a great accompaniment to both red meat and poultry and adds a tasty flavor kick to steamed vegetables as well.

Pumpkin seeds have one of the highest protein content of any seed or nut, with around one third protein, including good amounts of tryptophan. They are also full of minerals like magnesium, manganese, iron, copper and zinc.

In addition to the healthy pumpkin seeds, this recipe has optional pumpkin seed oil. Bright green and with an intensely rich and nutty taste, pumpkin seed oil contains high levels of the phytosterol beta-sitosterol and a steroidal compound called delta-7 sterine that may help prevent hair loss and prostate problems in men.

This pumpkin seed pesto is full of flavor and nutrition, very low in carbs and adds an interesting twist to a paleo meal. Let me know what you think of it if you make it up yourself. Read More…

10 Safe Tips to Quickly Increase Your Energy

Quinoa-stuffed-Kabocha-Squash

Summer is over folks. Squash season has arrived! Quinoa stuffed kabocha squash makes for an exciting side dish or a meal unto itself. Last year squash season got away from me and before I knew it, it was May and I think I made just one pot of butternut squash soup. The horror!  

I am vowing right here and now that it will NOT happen to me again this year.  I’ve already started hoarding squash on my kitchen counter, including kabocha, acorn and butternut. Let’s use up the kabochas!

This is a vegetarian dish, but you can always add chicken or turkey sausage or ground meat to it if you like to make it a hearty complete Paleo meal. The filling is made up of a quinoa, kale, and garlic mixture which might not sound too exciting but I jazzed it up with some anchovy dressing called anchoïade because I’m an anchovy freak. Then I topped it all with some fall-appropriate colorful pomegranate seeds and chives.

If you’re trying to go full Paleo, skip the quinoa and substitute ground bison or other ground meat. Read More…
