How To Make Healthy Pickled Radish

Pickled radish has long been a staple side dish in Korean cuisine. It's sweet, sour, and crunchy, and is almost always a component of traditional sushi rolls (kim bap).

Quinoa: One of Nature's Healthiest Protein-Rich Foods

If you're looking for a truly healthy, protein-rich food to anchor your diet, I highly recommend that you consider quinoa (pronounced keen wah). Called the "mother of grains" by the Incan empire, quinoa is native to South America, and is naturally rich in all nine essential amino acids - these are amino acids that we humans can't make from other nutrients, so must obtain from our diet. Quinoa is one of a few grains that are gluten-free, and for most people, it's easy to digest and utilize. Read more about Quinoa: One of Nature's Healthiest Protein-Rich Foods

 

Swiss Chard with Raisins and Pecans Recipe

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
