Recipes – index

Most of these recipes are quick, easy, nourishing, and inexpensive. They use common ingredients, foods, herbs, and spices available in Europe and North America. 

No special equipment is required, except a knife, a cutting board, a potato peeler, a blender, a pot, a steamer basket, a frying pan, and a pressure cooker. Spagetti of zucchini squash (courgette) requires a device called a spiralizer.

You can easily vary the ingredients and spices to prepare different dishes, using the same basic recipe. For example, one night you could steam broccoli and then add hempseed oil and rosemary. The next night, you could steam carrots and then add flaxseed oil and oregano. This is one recipe  – steamed vegetables.

This list of recipes is divided into the following categories:

These recipes follow the ideas of health via food:

Specifically, the recipes substitute pure stevia (extract or dried leaves) for sugar, almond or coco milk for cow’s milk, and oat or buckwheat flour for wheat flour. They also avoid combinations of starch and protein, such as flour and eggs, and combinations of two proteins, such as ham and eggs, in the same recipe.

Both vegan and paleo recipes are included.

Green smoothie (O, A)

Ingredients: spinach (or kale or other leafy green) carrot beet apple (or blueberry) lemon or lime or grapefruit clove or ginger (O) or cinnamon (A) stevia powder or leaves pumpkin seeds (or flax seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, walnuts, or almonds) Brazil nuts bee pollen carbonated water (O) or non-carbonated water (A) If you include kale, then chop it first, so the blender can cut it up. Likewise, chop carrots into slices. Look for pre-cooked red beet. Cut the lemon or lime into quarters, and then cut out the flesh or squeeze the quarters into the blender. To give it a sweet taste without sugar (without a bitter aftertaste), use pure stevia in the form of the dried powdered leaves or the liquid extract with at least ninety-five percent steviodies. Add all ingredients to a blender, and then run on high speed for two minutes. The green vegetables have magnesium. The carrots have potassium and beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. The beet has iron and nitric oxide, which can strengthen your blood vessels and your heart. The ginger has copper. The combination of magnesium, iron, copper, and vitamin A can stimulate the growth of new red blood cells. The lemon or lime has vitamin C, which can have a detoxifying effect. Blueberries have anthocyanins, which can strengthen the eyes. Brazil nuts have some selenium, depending on the soil where they were grown. Pumpkin seeds have zinc. Hemp seeds, flax seeds, and chia seeds have healthy poly-unsaturated oils (omega-three). Walnuts have vitamin E. Bee pollen has vitamin B. If you include ginger, exclude pumpkin seeds, and vice versa, since the zinc and copper can interfere with each other. Optionally, add vitamin C, vitamin B3 (niacin), chlorella, cocoa, reishi (or he shou wu), apple cider vinegar, one or two drops of peppermint oil, or your favorite supplement.  

Fruit smoothie (O, A)

Ingredients: spinach (or kale or other leafy green) banana (O) apple pear lemon or lime clove or ginger (O) or cinnamon (A) stevia hemp seeds (or flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, walnuts, or almonds) Brazil nuts bee pollen carbonated water (O) According to chrononutrition, it is better to eat sweet fruits at night. The natural sugar in the fruit can act as a gentle sedative, if you drink this at least an hour before you go to sleep. If you include kale, then chop it first, so the blender can cut it up. Include one or two Brazil nuts (for selenium). Add all ingredients to a blender, and then run on high speed for two minutes. Optionally, add chlorella, cocoa, reishi (or he shou wu), apple cider vinegar, bee pollen, one or two drops of peppermint oil, and possibly vitamins C, vitamin B3 (niacin), B12 (cobalamin) or D3, or your favorite supplement.
