Live Green Miso Lemon Dressing

Around Christmas time I went to the Hippocrates Institute in West Palm Beach. This raw and live food paradise is known for its healing practices. I wrote about my experience there in this and this post.

Kind Curried Cauliflower Soup

Recently, many of my friends were complaining of increased bloating and digestive un-ease. Not a pleasant feeling but quite expected during the cold windy Fall! While there are some effective bloating-busting tricks, food is one of the main ones. During the times when your belly feels overtaxed and not happy, one of the ways to help it heal is to be kind to it. Easy-to digest food made with foods that combine well together and spiced with digestion stimulating spices is the best way to go!

Liver Detox Salad

Living in a polluted city, going through the rush and stresses of the modern life, and eating more fat and sugar than our ancestors ever did, we put a huge burden on our liver. Liver is responsible for purifying our body from all the toxins. It helps to break down fats and sugars besides all the medications that we mindlessly put in our body. It also plays an important role in the metabolism of protein and stores the vitamins A, D, K, B12 and folate and synthesizes blood clotting factors. In one word, you can’t afford to have a malfunctioning Liver if you want to live an active happy life. Unfortunately, if you have ever been to a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine or Ayurveda, you were likely told that you Liver needs some help, that it needs to be strengthened and purified.

Power Up Baklava

Since I started working at Pablo Fitness, in midtown east, I also discovered the best Baklava place in the city or maybe even in the world besides Turkey.
