Spaghetti Squash Lime Peanut Noodle Bowl - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Spaghetti Squash Lime Peanut Noodle Bowl – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Any dish that uses my most favorite lime peanut sauce is a winner to me. I love this sauce. It’s my personal (healthy, ageless) crack. And, using it on a dish with a low-glycemic index, making it anti-inflammatory, is a bonus. Instead of rice noodles we’re using spaghetti squash, which is sweeter and much healthier […]

Tahini Cocoa Truffles - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Tahini Cocoa Truffles – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

A new treat for you ageless beauties who have a sweet tooth. This one has a Middle Eastern flair to it, reminds me a little of my favorite dessert in Istanbul, besides baklava, called halvah, which is essentially a sesame paste with some sort of sweetener. These truffles have a more exotic taste than the […]

Superfood Green Smoothie - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Superfood Green Smoothie – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

This smoothie is a superfood powerhouse. It’s also creamy, mildly sweet, filling, and delicious. It’s perfect for an afternoon snack or for breakfast. What makes this smoothie so good for you and energizing? Well, of course it has kale, but the real stars are the added maca powder, bee pollen, and hemp seeds. These are […]

Chinese Chicken Salad - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Chinese Chicken Salad – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I used to love the Chinese Chicken Salad my aunt would make. It was sweet, savory, and 100% addictive. However, it was not ageless. After writing the Ageless Diet book, I wanted to revisit some of my favorite inflammatory recipes, those dishes that tasted so good and made me feel so bad, and try my […]

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. 

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
