Quick Bone Broth Veggie “Noodle” Soup

Bone broth is a delicious, restorative, highly nutritious broth made by simmering meat bones in water for 8-10 hours. The broth  completely absorbs all the micronutrients from the bones themselves.  AIP and Paleo diets both recommend consuming bone broth every day.  However it can get boring, so I tend to add it to a thick soup or make a nice soup out of it from scratch, like this one.

Feel free to swap out the kale and mushrooms with any other vegetables (raw or cooked) you already have in your frig. Continue reading “Quick Bone Broth Veggie “Noodle” Soup”

Recipe Notes
  • It's super important to check the labels of any jarred sauce you buy.  Make sure there are no added chemicals, sugars, HFCS, MSG, or "added coloring".  Citric acid is ok as a preservative but if you see anything you can't pronounce, put it back on the shelf.

Curried Chickpeas and Rice

Curried Chickpeas with Rice

Here’s another recipe from Cooking Light magazine, which I adapted to make even healthier.  The original recipe used pork but I made it vegetarian by using chickpeas instead.  I also swapped out the regular dairy milk and used light coconut milk, and swapped the white flour to millet flour, although it would probably be just fine without any flour at all.  I added garam masala and increased the amount of curry powder because the original was bland.  I think the result is a really nice vegan meal.  Having pre-cooked rice and chickpeas on hand makes it a super-fast weeknight meal.

Black Bean and Salsa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

This meat-free dinner is adapted from a recipe my husband found on his favorite cycling podcast website. So you know it’s got to be good if it was developed with athletes in mind, right? Well, we made this and dug into it and thought we went to heaven.  The spicy smoky flavor of the black beans combined with the creamy sweet potato is a marriage of flavors that’s meant to be. I’m not kidding, try it and if you don’t see angels I will eat my cycling socks. Continue reading “Black Bean and Salsa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes”
