Lotus seeds roasted in a pan with a wee bit of ghee, cinnamon, salt and ground Nigella sativa and fennel seeds. That's a tasty crunchy medicinal snack. Food is good. This is a recipe that would have made my friend Yasmina proud. ...
It's been a long time since I did a food post. I suppose some of you don't know that I do that sometimes. There is a collection here on Beyond Meds. I also have a food blog that I've not posted on in a long time that has a lot more variation because I was doing it while my diet kept changing and changing as I learned what my body needed at any given time. ...
Fresh cut beets look like candy! Roast them with garlic and onion too. Topped with cilantro and hemp seed pesto. … [click on title to read and view more]
I don't tolerate fish oil in supplement form, nor any other Omega 3 supplement so I was thrilled to learn I do okay with flash frozen (right upon catch) salmon...(histamine intolerance has its challenges) and Omega 3 fatty acids are very important to heal the iatrogenically injured brain -- anyway...this was breakfast a few days ago: Piece of salmon on top of a bed of burdock root, garlic, parsley & artichoke hearts. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
As much as it seems to annoy some people, I do like tweeting what I'm up to in the kitchen. Sometimes people ask me for recipes. I generally don't use recipes. I throw things together on the fly based on whims. Sometimes that works out real well. It did this time. So I patched together a recipe of sorts below.

This is actually the one I have. I borrowed the picture to the right from google because I failed to take a photo. The picture of... Continue Reading →
A recipe in tweets. I announced what I was cooking in a tweet: apple, carmelized onion and ginger chutney currently cooking on stove... Someone requested the recipe and so I tweeted the following: … [click on title for the rest of the post]
Had a hankering for something crunchy and I haven't eaten chips of any variety in eons (literally several years) ...so I did the only thing I could do in this circumstance...I deep fried my own sweet potato chips in coconut oil... photographed below is one of the batches...I ate each batch as the next batch fried...I'm shameless... … [click on title to read and view more]
Odd but wonderful concoction: blended sweet potato, apple, chia seeds and LOTS of garlic...baked the "batter" in cast iron pan till crispy. It turned out tasting vaguely of baked or fried grits or polenta, both foods I miss but can no longer eat. This was a delightful surprise as I made it up totally on the fly with no real sense of what the final product would be like. You know what they say about the mother of invention. I need variation and diversity in my diet and so I am forever playing with new ingredients. My diet may be restricted in certain regards, but I make it a habit to add new foods I've never tried before as well as new combos all the time. This means I don't generally feel deprived as I'm always eating new and delicious foods. … [click on title to read and view more]
