How to Make Kim Chi

Originally posted in September of 2009

Of the countless varieties of kim chi that are made in Korea, by far the most common and celebrated version is made with Napa cabbage.

Kim chi that's made with cabbage is loaded with indole-3-carbinol (I3C), a compound that is well recognized as a powerful cancer-fighting compound. Numerous studies indicate that I3C can offer protection against many different types of cancer and may even stop the growth of existing tumors. Read more about How to Make Kim Chi

Organic Tofu

I've long maintained that when eaten in moderation, organic soy can be a healthy food choice for most people. One of the major arguments against eating soy is that it contains phytates that can prevent absorption of minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron. To this point, I think it's important to consider that minimally processed organic soy has been assessed to contain anywhere between 1.4 to 3.0 percent phytates, while highly processed and concentrated forms of soy like soy protein isolate typically contain closer to 5 percent phytates.

How to Make Healthy Chocolate Cashew Butter Cups

A healthier version of Reese peanut butter cups, these chocolate cashew butter cups deliver plenty of heart-healthy flavonoids and healthy protein. If cashew butter isn't your thing, feel free to substitute with your preferred nut butter - almond butter and organic peanut butter work just as well, though both are less naturally sweet than cashew butter, so you may want to add a little more honey to the filling. - Ben Kim

How to Make a Raw, Dairy-Free, Dill Cheese Dressing

I've long maintained that pasteurized and homogenized dairy products should be avoided whenever possible, as regular intake of cooked casein in dairy is associated with a number of health challenges, the most common of which are chronic ear infections, nasal congestion, acne, eczema, a variety of autoimmune illnesses, and even cancer.

Sunflower Dill Sauce

I almost never eat dairy products, but like a lot of people who follow a dairy-free diet, I find myself craving different types of cheese from time to time. If you're like me and long for the texture and flavor of cheese on occasion, I hope that you give the following recipe for raw, dairy-free dill cheese a try. In the proportions listed, this recipe comes out as more of a cheese dressing; if you prefer it thicker and richer, start with less water when you blend and adjust if necessary by adding small amounts of water.
