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 […]

French Lentil Salad with Potatoes, Cucumber, Olives – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Perfect salad for late summer when there’s a bounty of potatoes and cucumbers, but this salad will work well any season. This one is chock full of protein, fiber, and good flavors. This salad is a meal for 4 or a great side dish for 6. If it’s summer, I’d serve this with a big […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Miso Soup with Tofu - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Miso Soup with Tofu – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Miso is considered one of the healthiest foods out there. And it’s really delicious. A miso paste adds that umami flavor we all love. It’s a fermented food, made from a mostly soybeans (and barley, brown rice and several other grains with a fungus, Aspergillus oryzae) so make sure you buy organic miso paste. Miso […]

These grain bowls are adaptable, insanely flavorful, and easy to put together. Cook up the ingredients for your veggie/whole grain bowls at the beginning of the week, and mix and match ingredients as the week goes.

These quinoa bowls make for a flavorful, satisfying, and easy-to-prepare lunch. This recipe also makes the case for cooking a batch of whole grains on Sunday for a workweek of healthy, tasty lunches.

Pecan Brussels Sprouts - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Pecan Brussels Sprouts – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I love Brussels sprouts. And this recipe is one of the easiest ways to prepare the petit cabbages. These are one of those vegetables we should all be eating more of because these sprouts are high in phytonutrients, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Brussels sprouts are high in a chemical thought to contain anti-cancer properties; it’s called […]

Lemony Lentil Salad - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Lemony Lentil Salad – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Beluga lentils, beloved by chefs and home cooks, are often featured on the menus of the fanciest of restaurants. They get their name from their resemblance to the caviar. They’re shiny, black, and smaller than most varieties of lentils. Like all lentils the beluga variety is a great source of fiber and protein. Belugas are […]

Fresh Herbs & Mushroom Omelet – an Ageless Diet Recipe

I know what you’re thinking, “another omelet/frittata/egg dish recipe?” Yes, and only because they’re so easy and so delicious and totally ageless approved. There’s a good reason almost all major cuisines of the world have egg dishes they eat for fortifying snacks, lunches, brunches, and dinners. This particular fresh herb and mushroom omelet I cook […]

Fresh Tomato & Red Lentil Soup – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I love this soup. It’s bright – from the citrus – fresh tasting and still filling. Lentils are so good for you. And anything with this many herbs is an energizing recipe. It’s part of the Ageless Diet because it’s one of those perfect dishes – anti-inflammatory, delicious, savory, and full of good carbs and […]

Vegetable Stir-Fry - Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Vegetable Stir-Fry – Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I’ve been craving a stir-fry. If you’ve never made one, they’re simple to make – most of the work is in the prep and that’s just chopping vegetables. And I wanted to create a vegan version (well, vegan except for the fish sauce which you can substitute with more tamari or dashi or miso or […]

Summer Corn Salad - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Summer Corn Salad – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Even though corn is not necessarily a low-glycemic vegetable, it’s irresistible in the summer. Who doesn’t love fresh corn, just shucked, from the Farmers Market, grilled up or lightly blanched and in a salad with other garden fresh herbs and vegetables? I certainly do. And, corn is relatively good for you because it’s high in […]
