Beet and Orange Salad

Why beets? Cuz they're so pretty! And they're great for your liver and heart. They're cancer-fighters, too. Have problems with high blood pressure? Try eating some beets or drinking beet juice! I made this recipe up basically cuz I wanted to see these colors together....

Turkey Zucchini Burgers

These burger bites are a go-to here at the Hormek household. They're quick, delicious, they make great leftovers, and they contain veggies! We don't eat them on buns; we just pop 'em on the plate. They're so juicy! Gluten free, paleo Ingredients 1 zucchini, washed but...

Sweet Potato Smoothie

How did I end up making this? So my friend Brittany texted me "hey I have a huge bag of chopped sweet potatoes and I know exactly who to give them to." ME! Aren't I so lucky?! She works for a great company that provides produce to restaurants and food stores. So...

Obsessive Arugula Salad

Dude. I'm obsessed. I can't stop eating arugula salads. They are SO DAMN GOOD. And easy and cheap and delicious! I think I've eaten an arugula salad every day in a row for the past two weeks except for those two days we were partying in Baltimore. Just combine all...

Crisp Asparagus Salad

It's asparagus season! Gobble it up cuz it has more protein than other veggies. And it has vitamin K, folic acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, B6, and fiber! Eat it with a healthy fat to help you absorb the fat-soluble nutrients. Here's an idea for a salad that doesn't even...

Infused Water

This isn't a recipe but it's an idea. A suggestion. It’s so simple but how many of us are doing it? Infuse your water with good healthy stuff. You’ll soak up the health benefits from the herbs/veggies/fruit, and your water will also taste better, so you’re more likely...

Julie’s Ume Plum Green Beans

Ume plums are super popular in Japan. They’re fermented salty plums that are super healthy! They’re hard to find in the US. But you can buy Ume Plum vinegar. Trim the ends off of fresh green beans and discard. Wash. Toss with grapeseed or high-quality extra virgin...

Yummy Kale Salad

I do NOT enjoy a salad with big chunks of raw kale. It’s just too earthy. But there’s a secret that some restaurants obviously don’t know about—the sensual kale massage. Yep that’s right! If you give your kale a quick sensual massage, it will soften right up and gets...
