My mother-in-law first introduced me to the idea of pickles in a meat dish. The fermented tang makes this loaf shine! Turkey is high in tryptophan, which gets converted to 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), and then to serotonin, the neurotransmitter that helps improve mood. Onions are often overlooked on the nutrition scale, but they contain some of the highest levels of an antioxidant called quercetin, which works as both an antihistamine and an anti-inflammatory. Ingredients:...

  When talking to readers about their dietary concerns one of the first things they ask me about is breakfast or more specifically, breakfast cereal. For a large portion of the North American population, a bowl of cold breakfast cereal is a normal way to start the day. Bacon, eggs and toast might be an option for the weekend but people on the go want something quick and convenient. Problem is that convenience is one of the worst ways to start your day. The content of most...

They have become a popular “superfood” over the past few years due to their high nutrient content and antioxidant properties.

  Pumpkin is very easy to digest. The flesh of a pumpkin is used to make pies and soups that are healing and soothing. Consider that pumpkin is a type of squash and is one of the first foods introduced to babies because of its ease of digestion. And pumpkin puree is a perfect way to thicken sauces without adding fat and flour.    One cup of cooked pumpkin contains 146 percent of the daily-recommended intake of beta carotene, which protects cholesterol from oxidation,...

This is a perfect compliment to a holiday meal. No cooking here which saves stove top space in a busy kitchen. Just pop these ingredients into a food processor and blend.

Ingredients: 12-oz             fresh cranberries, rinsed and picked over 4 tbsp             honey 2 tsp  ...

  Sauerkraut is sour because of lacto-fermentation, a process in which probiotic bacteria break down the cabbage. A serving of sauerkraut gives you a powerful dose of these healthy probiotics, which aid digestion, and research has found raw sauerkraut prevents cancer cells from forming. It contains sulfur-containing compounds known as glucosinolates, which help the liver eliminate excess estrogen and xenoestrogen. I use purple cabbage because it also contains anthocyanins, a...

The hazelnuts (and hemp seeds in the mayo, if using) provide a good amount of vitamin E in one meal, which is wonderful for nourishing your adrenal glands. Adrenals are among the organs that store vitamin E, an important nutrient that fights stress. Vitamin E also restores glutathione levels in the liver, which is important for detoxification.   Ingredients:    Salad: 2 cups     thinly sliced fennel (or use celery if fennel is unavailable) 2⁄3...
