Nori Rolls with Smoked Salmon - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Nori Rolls with Smoked Salmon – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This is the perfect meal for a busy, modern life. It’s pleasing to the eye and the palate, and it’s a cinch to make. You’ll need nori – available at most markets these days – sheets of dried seaweed, smoked salmon (from the Pacific) or trout, fermented vegetables (kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles), avocado, sprouts, a spritz […]

David's Black Bean Tacos - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

David’s Black Bean Tacos – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

After a trip to Sian Ka’an, a biosphere just past Tulum, on the Yucatan Peninsula, to hang out at my friend Todd’s new place, I was hooked on the food. Everyday was another really delicious meal cooked by David, Todd’s chef. Breakfast was fresh fruit, a satisfying, filling but still light enough to snorkel the rest […]

Fish Tacos - An Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Fish Tacos – An Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This is one of my favorite fast dinners to make. Especially when I’m craving a taste of the beach and the sun and sea. They’re fresh, full of great, good-for-you vegetables, and eating them with cabbage leaves as your tortilla stand-in is an option, if you want to make them paleo-friendly. I, however, love my […]

Grilled Corn and Cabbage Salad - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Grilled Corn and Cabbage Salad – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

My new favorite salad, created on the fly using the bounty of Farmers Market corn, zucchini, and crunchy, crispy pickling cucumbers. Got the red cabbage at the store since I’m on a can’t-stop-won’t-stop taco kick and shredded cabbage goes so well with any kind of taco action. (I’ll make a taco out of anything, and […]

Pico De Gallo

Pico De Gallo

The simplest salsa you’ll ever make. Perfect for those overripe tomatoes at the Farmers Market, the ones they have in a box, sold at a discounted price because they’re bruised, battered, and ready to eat 5 minutes ago. These juicy tomatoes make the best pico de gallo. 

Grilled Steak Tacos - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Grilled Steak Tacos – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

“Here’s an idea: Spend the same $30, or $50 or $100 or $300 on meat that you now spend each week or month, but buy less and buy better.” I’m beginning this steak taco recipe with a this quote from one my favorite cookbook writers: Mark Bittman. If you haven’t checked out a Mark Bittman cookbook, […]

Quinoa Bowl with Sesame Dressing

Quinoa Bowl with Sesame Dressing

Fresh veggies, quinoa, and a simple dressing are you need for a really delicious, ageless meal. Big batch cook your grain for really quick preparation. It’s an easy meal that’s perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Substitute quinoa for the grain of your choice, if you want.

A tasty, simple, healthy meal to make for lunch, dinner, or whenever you want. A perfect lunch that’s filling, stops midday snacking, and keeps you lean. Raw, vegan, paleo and primal friendly, gluten-free, and 100% ageless, they’re delicious, and easy to make!  

Twice-Cooked Crispy Potatoes - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Twice-Cooked Crispy Potatoes – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

There’s a restaurant in the Union Station of Denver, Colorado that serves a good burger with a side of potatoes, not french fries, something better. They are twice cooked crispy potatoes. They used fingerling potatoes, but for this recipe, I’m going to cheat with a more readily available potato – baby yukon golds. You could […]

Coffee Energy Bites - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Coffee Energy Bites – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

These no bake coffee energy bites are the bomb. Infused with freshly ground coffee, they are sweet, energizing, rich in antioxidants, great post-workout or for a snack later in the day. These little guys are ideal for travel too. I take them with me on the plane, especially on those dreaded 6 AM flights. With a […]

Rolled Oat Energy Bites - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Rolled Oat Energy Bites – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I’ve got balls of energy! Pun intended… Inspired by the Christmas treats a nutritionist gave me, I created this recipe. I wanted to recreate those tasty energy bites – balls or truffles or whatever you want to call them – Lauren made us. They’re perfect as a post-workout treat or as dessert. They’re totally ageless […]

Savory Breakfast Porridge - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Savory Breakfast Porridge – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I am a creature of habit. I seem to thrive with a routine, and it doesn’t bother me. Some might find this (and me) boring, but I dig my daily routine. Perhaps it’s because I write, and I work at home, that I stick to my habits. They give my day a shape and a […]

Burrito Bowl - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Burrito Bowl – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I love legumes because they’re easy to cook, versatile, affordable, flavorful, chock full of nutrients, and perfect in almost any dish. Legumes, like black and kidney beans used in this recipe, are low in fat, have no cholesterol and are high in folate, potassium, iron, zinc, B vitamins, copper, and magnesium (most Americans are woefully […]

Smoky Cashew Sauce - An Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Smoky Cashew Sauce – An Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This is a great addition to almost any meal when you’re craving a little something creamy and rich but you don’t want the inflammatory issues that come from eating dairy. It’s also a perfect dip. This recipe was inspired by Chef Alex Stupak at Empellón Taqueria in New York. I’ve modified it a little. The […]

Baba Ghanouj - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Baba Ghanouj – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I’m not a big eater of eggplant (or aubergine for you UK loving types). But it is a versatile vegetable. In the nightshade family, like tomatoes, the eggplant or aubergine is toxic in huge quantities. But we’re not eating pounds and pounds of eggplant, we’re making Baba Ghanouj or Moutabel. Now that I’ve mastered hummus, […]

Spicy Roasted Romanesco - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Spicy Roasted Romanesco – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Romanesco is one of those beautiful, wild, weird-looking vegetables. A lime green – almost chartreuse – color, romanesco is a happy marriage between a cauliflower and a broccoli. Texture-wise it’s more like cauliflower, and it can be used in just about any recipe that requires cauliflower, brussels sprouts, broccoli rabe, or plain broccoli. It’s slightly […]

Moroccan Chickpea Stew with Chard - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Moroccan Chickpea Stew with Chard – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

It’s late winter in the United States, and it’s been a particularly snowy and cold winter this year. Hearty stews and soups with root vegetables are kind of de rigueur. I am, however, in South Africa working on a film project, and it’s summer here. Glorious summer. Warm breezes, sun, crisp white wines, ripe tomatoes and […]

Quick Black Bean Tacos - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Quick Black Bean Tacos – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Part of making cooking ageless easy and delicious is creating fool-proof recipes. My go-to’s on busy weekdays and nights are endless variations of these three meals: tacos (or wraps), what I call bistro salads (loaded with plenty of good stuff), and grain bowls. This black bean taco recipe fits in beautifully with this easy sort […]
