Stirring & Frying Without Oil | Flavorful Oil Free Stir Fry

IMG_0559I’d like to direct this post to my clients, as their dedication to their nutritional programs and lifestyle changes with food continue to inspire these oil free food creation recipes.

For newbie oil free lifestylers, it’s easy to reach the false conclusion that you aren’t able to eat anything on a diet that’s oil free. This is often the conflict my clients run into within their logical breakdown. I don’t blame them either! We’ve learned to prepare foods with mass amounts of oil, which I have learned is often unnecessary. However, what is required is the will and motivation to be open to a new way of preparing foods 🙂

Most recipes require oil, which poses the question of how to replace the oil when it seems so mandatory in a recipe? Continue reading

Creamy & Dreamy Oil Free Pasta

IMG_0378

Oil free life-styling can often be intimidating for the person who loves to eat pasta, or anything with grains, really.

In college, I loved pasta in the simplest form : garlic, olive oil, with salt & pepper. Now that I live oil free, I still love to enjoy pasta the same way, just without the oil. However, I also love to enjoy bland foods 🙂

For the sake of your pallet, lets make this a bit more enjoyable for you!

When it comes to choosing a grain for pasta, I love to use Farro by Rustichella d’Abruzzo. I trust their product because of their incredibly authentic farming practices and the quality of pasta they produce 🙂 Loaded with protein, fiber, and minerals!

For tomato sauce pasta lovers, there’s an available product that’s oil free! Love to advocate Engine 2 as a pasta sauce alternative if you don’t have time to make your own 🙂

Ingredients

All organic ingredients
Serves 3-4 people
  • 1 Box of Farro
  • 1/2 head of broccoli
  • 1 cup Engine 2 pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup Wallaby Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tsp ground oregano
  • 2 Tsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric
  • 1/2 Tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 Tsp air dried sea salt
  • 1 small handful of baby heirloom tomatoes

 

Directions

Boil purified water in a stainless steal pot. When water is done boiling, add dried pasta and cook for about 15 minutes, or until soft.

Chop broccoli into florets and soak in purified water for at least 20 minutes to enhance their vitality 🙂

Drain pasta, leaving about a 1/4 inch of water in the pot. At this point, add your broccoli to the pot with hot pasta. Cover the pot with a lid to allow the steam from the pasta to lightly blanch broccoli. Let sit for 5- 10 minutes.

I prefer to blanch my veggies this way so they’re not exposed to high amounts of heat for long periods of time. It leaves them with plenty of texture 🙂

Once broccoli is lightly blanched with pasta, you may add the remaining ingredients.

Mix softly and gently with a wooden spoon so pasta doesn’t fall apart.

Serve with a side of greens and mix it all together for full flava 😉

Get Ready To Parfait | The Clean Superfood Way

Image(3)When you first begin to recreate your lifestyle by making healthier choices, it can often seem as though you’re going to be missing out on the beautiful pleasures of life! All that encompass food, really.

I’ll definitely be one to tell you that in my childhood years of constant dieting, I often felt deprived. However, at the same time, dieting became my way of life that in reality I learned to love.

Today, my food creations seem to be greatly inspired by my childhood favorites 🙂

One of my all time unhealthy favorite foods was the McDonalds Fruit and Yogurt Parfait. The thought of it now is a bit disgusting just by knowing what’s in their food products.

SO, with reminiscing on this childhood fav…I’m excited to share this super simple remake with you!

Just in case you need to jaunt your memory…

If you stay away from dairy products, then you can substitute with a clean source of dairy free yogurt.

Keep an eye out for those chemicals in dairy free products, please!

I love to advocate Wallaby Yogurt because of their wide variety of cultures use in their products 🙂

I refer to them in a previous post featuring the best fermented foods you can purchase in the grocery store.


Ingredients

1 cup Wallaby Whole Greek Yogurt

1/2 cup fresh strawberries

1/2 cup wild frozen blueberries

1 Tsp raw unheated honey

1 Tbsp bee pollen

1/2 cup of rolled oats



Directions

Let blueberries thaw out for 10 minutes before making your parfait bowl for the perfect texture

Cut tops off of strawberries and slice them, in quarters or in thin slices 🙂

Scoop yogurt and place on top of berries. Sprinkle oats and bee pollen over yogurt, followed by drizzles of honey 🙂

I love to enjoy this bowl after a great long lap swim! This beautifully nutritious bowl sustains my “fuel tank” all day!

Enjoy every bite of this perfect parfait!

Ladies and Gents, have you been thirsting for that inner Latin flame? | The Latin Torch

I decided to take some time to fast with liquids as a way to allow my body to alkalize, “clean house”, rejuvenate, and gain some clarity in aspects of life.

I had intended on using the traditional lemon, cayenne pepper, maple syrup cleanse (replacing the maple syrup with raw honey), but came to the conclusion that I’d welcome other fresh flavors 🙂 Continue reading

Hangover Body Bounce Back | Instantaneous Hangover Relief!

As much as I’m involved in supporting my health, I will hid behind no blanket by admitting that I love to enjoy fine wine 🙂

Somewhat recently over the past 6 months I woke with the notorious nausea, dehydration, and spinney feeling from having a bit too much wine, or perhaps a not so great quality grape. Drinking poor quality wines don’t strike my body too well… 

The morning I woke with this hangover feeling, I happened to have a small amount of oat milk left in my fridge from the batch I made the day prior. There was only about 4 oz left of it. I thought, “Okay, I just need something cold in my stomach and this last bit of oat milk sounds amazing right now…” Continue reading

My Secret Ingredient For The Past 8 Months | Alkaline Kangen Water

The weekend has arrived!

This will be a post that is out of usual pattern, but I’m excited to share this large piece of the world of my recipe creation 🙂

Almost 8 months ago, I chose to make an investment in my health.

In my vision of health, it all begins with the food. There is so much truth in the statement, “you are what you eat!” The beauty of this, is that it not only begins with what you eat, but also what you DRINK.

I’ve spent the past 7 years purchasing organic produce, making smoothies, evaluating ingredients. Three out of the 7 years have been spent making 85% of the foods I consume, simply because the quality of food available to us is just not good enough!

Gratefully, we have an option to choose the quality of our foods, including the water we drink. Continue reading
