Raw Vegan Nori Roll - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Raw Vegan Nori Roll – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

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 […]

Thai Basil Beef - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Thai Basil Beef – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This recipe is adapted from one I discovered in Bon Appétit. I’ve changed it to suit my tastes and to make it ageless- no sugar! I love the strong flavors in this dish. Lots of lime juice, fresh herbs – the basil and cilantro (and mint, if you want) work very well together here – […]

Butternut Chickpea Arugula Salad - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Butternut Chickpea Arugula Salad – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I’m kind of obsessed with butternut squash these days. Well, perhaps obsessed is an overstatement. I’ll admit then to  loving the gorgeous deep-orange (or is it burnt sienna?) color, the firm flesh, and sweet flavor as much as I adore my beloved chickpeas. And, I can’t believe it took me this long to create a […]

Bistro Salad - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Bistro Salad – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

The Bistro Salad is a kitchen sink kinda salad. Inspired by the salads you order at French bistros (or should I say French bistros in New York?), these salads are wonderfully flavorful and textured, with the raw and the cooked, the luscious and the crunchy, the healthy greens and the rich fats… I use roasted […]

Ginger Soy Citrus Salmon - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Ginger Soy Citrus Salmon – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Wild-caught salmon is a wonderfully versatile fish. Sure, it’s fatty, but that’s good, because it’s got the right kind of fats. Some people complain that it’s fishy – hey, it’s a fish after all! But, actually, it doesn’t have to be. It’s all in the way it’s prepared. Because this omega-3 rich fish adopts flavors […]

Shredded Chicken Tacos

Shredded Chicken Tacos

Another taco recipe for you… yes, I’m obsessed! They’re so easy to make, and taste so good. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize a taco (corn tortilla or lettuce or cabbage leaves) is such a great vehicle for all these different ingredients. Today’s taco or tostada (you can skip the folding […]

Easy Huevos Rancheros - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Easy Huevos Rancheros – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This is a variation on one of my favorite breakfasts – Huevos Rancheros. Though, nowadays, I often cook it for a hearty, quick dinner. This recipe is part of my plan to make cooking the Ageless Diet as easeful as possible. I’ve created three meals that work for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, with endless variations. They […]

Homemade Trail Mix - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Homemade Trail Mix – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This recipe was created because I needed something energizing to give to Scott, who was running 200 mile plus relay race from Miami to the Florida Keys in a 36 hour period. Something with enough protein, fiber, fat (good, plant-based fats), and heft to power him through his race. So, an ageless trail mix was […]

Salty Sweet Cashew Bars – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Energizing Raw Coconut Maca Fudge - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Energizing Raw Coconut Maca Fudge – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This is another raw vegan (depending on the sweetener you use) fudge recipe. All these vegan, raw, paleo dessert recipes I test are different, with fun variations, and this one has a really cool new addition. The twist on this fudge is the maca powder. I’m new to maca powder; I’ve just started adding it […]
