How to Make a Roasted Red Beet Salad

Red beets are right at the top my list of foods that everyone should aim to eat at least a few times a week. Per ounce, few other foods are as dense in nutrients that prevent cardiovascular disease, all types of cancer, and neurological damage associated with high homocysteine levels.

Spinach & Warm Beet Salad
Red beets are especially rich in folate, which is why they are useful for lowering blood homocysteine and reducing risk of birth defects.

How to Get Kids to Eat More Vegetables

We had it easy with our firstborn - he was eating handfuls of lightly braised Shanghai bok choy before he turned 2. So it furrowed our brows some to discover that vegetables were not our second son's thing. We started blending our green food powder in with his smoothies from the time he could sip from a straw, but we were still eager to see him eating substantial portions of freshly cooked green vegetables.

My Return To Being Gluten-Free

Back when I ran a residential fasting clinic, my diet was virtually free of processed foods, including bread. Breakfast was usually a large bowl of fresh fruit, avocado, romaine lettuce, and celery; lunch was typically a large salad with vegetable soup and some type of legume, often chickpeas or green peas; and dinner usually consisted of a large salad, steamed vegetables, and some type of gluten-free grain like quinoa or brown rice with guacamole or another nutrient-dense dressing. When I craved organic eggs, wild salmon, or homemade chicken broth-based soups, I ate them with gratitude. Read more about My Return To Being Gluten-Free
