Shrimp Guacamole

You don’t need an excuse to eat guacamole all day!  Guacamole is not just a side dish anymore.  Did you know that National Guacamole Day is coming up on Thursday, September 16th?

The Haas Avocado was born in 1935, by a farmer in America, and it’s now the most popular avocado variety out in the marketplace.  The avocado is well known for its health benefits related to its high vitamin content and lots of cholesterol-lowering healthy fats. 

There are hundreds of ways to prepare guacamole! Some people like to spice up their guacamole and add things like onion, garlic, cumin, tomato, cilantro, and more.  

You can easily get into the celebratory spirit of National Guacamole Day by visiting our client SideChef’s website where they have several unique recipes including; Crab Guac (what???), Roasted Sesame Guac (yum), Skinny Guac (ok!), and Loaded Guacamole with Chili Shrimp and Roasted Plantains (excuse me?

Not a Chef? Not a Problem

Make the Best Thanksgiving Meal & Sides with SideChef!

Well, friends, we have an interesting challenge coming up as we look toward Thanksgiving this year: Thanksgiving without those we are most grateful for, namely, our families. These are strange times, to say the least, and 2020 continues to ask us to dig deep into our hearts and souls to find the lessons, and to take them with us into 2021.

We may not be able to be with our families this year, but since Thanksgiving is about gratitude, let us try to be grateful for our health.

And just because we can’t be with our families doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy the delicious eats that this holiday always has to offer! If you find yourself challenged in the kitchen and wondering how to make a gourmet Thanksgiving meal, we have got a solution for you!

SideChef is a cooking app for the modern chef, the chef who can follow a recipe but who doesn’t necessarily know what the heck it means to “blanch” the asparagus or “mince” the garlic (and the chef who knows those terms too). The app was created by a guy named Kevin. Standing in front of his girlfriend, wanting to make dinner for her…but not knowing how to! That was 4 years ago, and SideChef was born.

Today, SideChef features over 16,000 recipes with robust search filtering, meal planning, ingredient delivery, step-by-step guidance with photos, instructional videos, voice command, in-app timers, and smart appliance control. SideChef has simplified the process of making delicious meals and has proven that anyone can cook (we’re happy to report that the founder’s girlfriend eats quite well these days!).

Want to know what else SideChef offers? Virtual cooking classes! They have partnered with Panasonic to bring you, virtual cooking classes! The first featured Belqui from @belquistwist where she taught everyone how to cook two recipes with a microwave oven – yes, a microwave!

Whether you join them virtually or just head over to their site for some recipes (like this Thanksgiving roasted chicken, or this apple turkey melt for day-after-Thanksgiving leftovers), SideChef has got your covered this year.

Kale Walnut Pesto Pasta With Salmon

A 4th of July Recipe…For Heart Health!

As you head into your 4th of July celebrations this weekend, they are probably going to look a little different, to say the least!

So, it won’t be a crowd, and likely won’t be a party (unless you’re practicing quaran-teaming with a few other families, in which case, you all might get together). But there is no reason not to celebrate anyway!

The good news is that you won’t have to dodge all of those party favorite treats that never serve to make you or your tummy feel very good (cupcakes, whipped cream, fried foods, the works).

This year, make a crowd-pleasing dinner to for heart health from pharmacologist, Dr. Lou Ignarro!

Dr. Ignarro was awarded the 1998 Nobel Prize in medicine for his discovery of Nitric Oxide (NO) in the human body, and many of its health-protective roles. His goal is to use these discoveries to help eliminate cardiovascular disease. After spending more than 40 years doing basic research, he decided he wanted to bring my message to the world. Although trained as a pharmacologist, he wants each and every person to begin on a natural path to good health.

Try his recipe below!

Kale Walnut Pesto Pasta with Salmon

The American Heart Association recommends eating fatty fish like salmon twice per week for the Omega-3 benefits. I enjoy pairing my salmon with whole wheat pasta tossed with a delicious kale walnut pesto sauce and spinach. This is a healthy, satisfying lunch or dinner that also works great as a post-workout meal.

Start to finish: 25 minutes (with pesto already made)

Servings: 4

1 tablespoon olive oil
One 16-ounce package whole wheat or gluten-free spaghetti
4 ounces Heart-Healthy Kale Walnut Pesto<link: Heart-Healthy Kale Walnut Pesto>
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
Four 4-ounce salmon filets
Half a lemon (optional, to squeeze over salmon when finished cooking)
Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Sweet Potato Bacon Salad: A Terry Wahls, MD Approved Recipe!

PREPARATION: 15 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 15 MINUTES
SERVINGS 4 TO 6
by Heather Christo
I love potato salad, but I hate mayonnaise—even before I found out I wasallergic to it—so I’ve always gravitated toward German-style potato saladwith a mustardy dressing. This one gets gorgeous color and crunch from sweet potatoes, celery, and a bit of bacon. Serve this at your next backyard BBQ and no one will be missing the goopy white old-fashioned potato
salad.

Kosher salt
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
MUSTARD VINAIGRETTE
1 red Fresno chile, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced
1⁄4 cup rice vinegar
1⁄4 cup olive oil
Kosher salt
4 uncured bacon slices, cooked until crisp and crumbled
1 cup thinly sliced celery hearts
1 cup thinly sliced green onions

Bring a medium-large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the sweet potatoes and simmer until just fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and briefly and gently rinse them with cold water. Set aside.
To make the mustard vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the chile, mustard, garlic, vinegar, and olive oil. Season with salt.In a large bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, bacon, celery, and green onions and toss with the mustard vinaigrette. Season with salt. Serve warm or at room temperature, or refrigerate and serve chilled.

SWEET POTATOES 
are one of nature’s best sources of vitamin A and a great source of vitamin C. One 8-ounce sweet potato will give you 100 percent of your recommended daily vitamin A. If you consume a little fat with the sweet potatoes (like the olive oil in the recipe here), it helps your body utilize all the vitamin A even more efficiently.

The Accidental Paleo: Easy Vegetarian Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle!

Consider featuring pastry chef turned healthy chef Lauren Lobley and her new cookbook, “The Accidental Paleo” in your outlet.  Lauren’s got a great concept that you don’t want to miss.  What if you want to go Paleo but you don’t eat meat?  What if you want to go Paleo but you are a vegetarian?  Lauren’s got you covered!

Vegetarian. Vegan. Paleo. Can you be all three?

Lauren Lobley, former pastry chef turned healthy chef, thinks yes. 


Don’t miss her debut cookbook, The Accidental Paleo: Easy Vegetarian Recipes for a Paleo Lifestyle! 

So, you want to change your diet for insert-reason-here. You’re vegetarian friend got great results from cutting out meat, and your vegan friend’s skin has never looked better. But your paleo friend is now lean and looking like a super athlete, and you’re left thinking: I want all of that! How is one to choose? What if you like the concept of eating like our ancestors but don’t really have a taste for meat most of the time? What if you don’t want to go completely vegetarian, but you like the idea of eating fewer animal products?

THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO (FEBRUARY 2, 2017, Primal Blueprint Publishing) is spearheading a new movement in the world of food. The foodie landscape in one where dietary groups have a cult-like following and affinity for their particular eating principles. But like life, diet isn’t always that cut and dry. We go through phases where sometimes, we crave meat and lots of it. Sometimes, we can’t stomach it. Sometimes, we just want to eat plants and lots of them.

How is one to choose? What if you like the concept of eating like our ancestors but don’t really have a taste for meat most of the time? What if you don’t want to go completely vegetarian, but you like the idea of eating fewer animal products?  Read how Lauren “accidentally,” wrote a cookbook to satisfy all those inbetweeners…

THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO

Making her debut on the cookbook scene, Lauren Lobley, former pastry chef and head baker to Food Network star, Duff Goldman, gave up her pastries for healthy food almost ten years ago. For the first 25 years of her life, she was a carnivore. But things changed, and at times she has been a vegan, vegetarian, lacto-ovo, pescatarian, paleo, and/or some combination of all of them. After years of testing, she has found her sweet spot:  Vegetarian Paleo.

 

FACTS:

  • Eating for health and longevity: there were almost 8 million vegetarians in the US in 2008, with another almost 23 million Americans following a vegetarian “inclined” diet.” And according to an article in Shape Magazine last year, if anyone was going to try a new diet, it was going to be the Paleo one.
  • But for those who are skating the line between paleo and vegetarian – and even vegan – there is good news:  You can have it all. And here’s a bonus: most experts agree that the single best thing you can do to ensure you live a longer, healthier life is to eat a more plant-based diet. We already spend about $300 billion a year on pharmaceutical drugs to treat diseases that are mostly preventable through diet. Something has to give.

“You have a responsibility to try and be as healthy as possible. I decided to pick the diet (a plant-based diet) that I thought would maximize my chances of long-term survival. You have to make a conscious decision to change for your own well-being, and that of your family and your country.” – President Bill Clinton

In THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO, Lauren has compiled her favorite vegetarian paleo recipes into one user-friendly, something-for-everyone cookbook. Lauren takes a carnivore’s approach to plant-based eating. By being mindful of textures, layers of flavor, colors, and nutrition in every concoction, the recipes in this book are designed to satisfy every palate, whether they prefer their meals with or without meat.

The desserts are refined sugar free (and in most cases, naturally sweetened, like the almond butter banana cheesecake), the appetizers trick the palate with their clever use of nuts and plant-based milk to feign a creamy texture (like the warm spinach and artichoke dip – to die for), and the main meals carefully build upon an array of vegetables and sauces to leave everyone full and satiated (like the butternut squash lasagna).

THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO is culinary fun for the whole family, and a sure fire way to ensure the health and longevity of you and your loved ones. A feast for the eyes and the taste buds, get ready to fall in love with plant-based eating like you never imagined you would. And rejoice in the fabulous fact that when it comes to being vegetarian or paleo, you don’t to choose. You can have it both ways.

Breakfast: Paleo Banana Walnut Blueberry Pancakes

Lauren Lobley Bio:

Lauren Lobley is a Canadian born and raised former pastry chef turned healthy chef. Together with her husband, Ted, and 22-month-old daughter, Madison Grace, they run and operate a yoga studio in Malibu, California, where Lauren provides the freshly baked vegan gluten-free granola, and Ted teaches the best class on this side of Malibu.

After culinary school, she joined the ranks and worked her way up as head baker to celebrity chef and Food Network star, Duff Goldman, churning out thousands of cakes a week at his West Hollywood location. Realizing how terrible she felt by consuming so much gluten, dairy, and sugar, Lauren began recipe testing with one goal in mind: to make healthy food taste good. She blogged about her experience on her website, Delectable You, and began featuring her recipes both on that site and on her increasingly popular YouTube channel.
