Delicious Basil Pesto

We eat a lot of pesto at our house. It is great for all kinds of things, eat it as a main dish or side with pasta, or anti-inflammatory "pasta" such as zucchini or spaghetti squash, make salad dressing or add it as a flavoring for sandwiches or eggplant, tomato, pesto bites (my replacement for...

Black Bean Burgers

Black bean burgers are a delicious, versatile and protein and fiber rich lunch or dinner. I'll talk about 3 different cooked toppings I made, but they are just as tasty with simple burger toppings such as tomato, lettuce, salsa and guac (mustard can be ok too as long as there isn't added sugar which can...

Ginger Turmeric Latte

Cold, snowy days call for warm cozy beverages. Below is my attempt at the delicious ginger turmeric latte I had at Hovey & Harrison (pictured above) in Edwards, CO (about 15 minutes from Vail). Mine definitely didn't look as pretty, but sure was tasty. Start by grating up about 1 tbs each of peeled fresh ginger and... Continue Reading →

Tofu Scramble

Many say breakfast is the most important meal. It is the foundation of your day, and can be key to getting your metabolism and energy going. And it should account for a good portion of your daily calories (about 30% or so). Having a good mix of protein to nourish and healthy fat to keep... Continue Reading →

Anti-inflammatory Adventure

Taking care of people in Boulder, I have a lot of patients who have gone gluten free or dairy free or something-else-free, not because they are allergic but because they just feel better. It makes sense...a lot of what causes disease, asthma, allergies, chronic pain, gastrointestinal disease, is related to an overactive inflammatory response, and... Continue Reading →
