Gluten-Free Apple Cake

This gluten-free apple cake is amazing! There are NO grains in the cake itself and I used gluten free oats for the topping. This one is a keeper — it’s so delicious and everyone can eat it! I scare people when I bake. I mean, I literally scare them. I often burn things, the end […]

Borscht With Beef

This Borscht With Beef is a deliciously healing classic soup filled with beets, cabbage, and beef. It’s kind of a cross between a hearty beef stew and a cabbage soup. It is amazing and even non-beet-lovers will ask for a second helping. I was working with a client a few weeks ago who had really […]

Tomato Free Marinara Sauce

If you literally can’t stomach tomatoes, this tomato free marinara sauce will have you jumping for joy! I over-indulged to such an extent this summer that I set-back my digestive system to where it was before I knew how to heal myself with food. Really… it is still quite unbelievable to me that I could […]

Fig Almond Smoothie

Fig season is my favorite season. This Fig Almond Smoothie makes great use of all of the fresh figs around right now. Late summer and early fall are fig seasons here in New York City. The farmer’s markets have tons of little baskets filled with purple and green figs. The scent is so sweet and […]

Black Bean And Pork Chili

So, why am I sitting here thinking of this Black Bean And Pork Chili? And it’s not just chili, it’s everything fall related. I never ever […]

Can You Give Up What’s Making You Sick?

Can you give up what’s making you sick? Think about it… it’s not so easy. Are you willing to give up what is making you sick? Hippocrates said that before you heal someone, you should ask them this question. Hippocrates was a really smart guy… I am going to try asking all of my clients […]

Mung Bean Coconut Curry

This mung bean coconut curry is the best curry you will ever have… it makes a lover out of people who think they don’t like curries. You have to try it!. When I was writing my book — The Chinese Medicine Cookbook, I necessarily had to test out tons and tons of recipes. I tested […]

Yes, You Do Need To Practice Self Care

Yes, you do need to practice self care! You deserve it! Self care is a catch-phrase nowadays. And, with good reason. It’s really true what they say: you can’t fill anything with an empty bucket and you can’t pour from an empty cup (and a ton of other cliches like this one). But what really […]

Tea Drinkers Have Less Stress

If you are a tea drinker, you already know how wonderful a hot cuppa can make you feel. But, did you know that research has shown that tea drinkers have less stress? It seems as if everyone is looking for ways to reduce stress. Whenever I hear of a new way to reduce stress, I’m […]
