About Recipes

All the recipes on this site are whole-food based, low-GI (except for some desserts), vegan, raw vegan, vegegarian, or seafood recipes that are free from gluten and meat and are easy to make.

I will try to include some healthier dessert, but I do not focus on gluten-free baked goods here because sweets, especially gluten-free baked goods, have a high glycemic index and do not support weight loss or the prevention/control of type 2 diabetes.

Vegetarian diet: No recipes on this site include meat because I am a pesco-vegetarian (former macrobiotic and raw vegan) by personal choice and am simply not good at developing  meat dishes.  I respect, however, bio-individuality meaning that each person is a unique individual with highly individualized nutritional requirements.  It is not my intention to try to convert any of my clients to vegetarian.

Gluten:  All the recipes on this site are gluten-free because I am sensitive to gluten myself and believe that gluten may cause various unknown health issues in many people.  If you are healthy and certain that gluten has no adverse effect on your body, please feel free to use regular flour or other ingredients that contain gluten.

Eggs:  Some recipes include eggs. If you are allergic to eggs, I recommend a product called Egg Replacer for baking. If you eat eggs, I highly recommend buying only cage-free, organic eggs.

Dairy:  Some recipes include dairy products such as yogurt and cheese because they contain lower levels of lactose and some people with lactoce interence including myself can toleralte yogurt and cheese better than regular milk.  I would rather recommend high quality organic dairy products containing a few simple ingredients than highly processed dairy-alternatives that contain a long list of undesirable ingredients including those derived from non-organic soy.

Soy:  Some recipes contain organic tofu.  While I don’t recommend consuming soy products on daily basis, I believe eating organic tofu a few times a month would not cause any harm.  My personal choice is organic sprouted tofu because of its better digestibility.

Other common food allergens include peanuts, corn, and shellfish.  In my consultation, I recommend an elimination diet if there is any doubt that my client might be allergic to any of these foods mentioned here.
