Healthy main and side dishes.

How to Make Healthy Korean Pancakes

Korean pancakes, called bin dae duk, are unique in that they aren't made with flour. Traditionally, bin dae duk includes small amounts of pork, but in the interest of healthy eating, this version is 100% plant-based - nothing but hearty beans, fresh vegetables, and a small amount of rice.

 

How to Make Rice Porridge

I know that this post will get some members of the food police upset with me, but I've said it before and I'll say it again: in some cases, I firmly believe that cooked white rice can be a healthy food choice.

 

How to Make Korean-Style Steamed Eggs

My mom recently told me that this is the only Korean recipe that my older sister has ever asked her for. Quite understandable, as you won't find a lighter or fluffier egg dish anywhere.

Korean steamed eggs are similar to quiche, but without a crust, and did I mention that these eggs are amazingly light and fluffy?

 

Korean Tofu Recipes

I think for most people, organic tofu is a healthy food choice. It's rich in healthy protein, and unlike flesh meats like beef, chicken, and pork, tofu doesn't tend to create inflammation in the body, which is why I generally recommend it to people with chronic, degenerative health challenges.

 

Healthy Replenishment Meal

Here's a favourite autumn dish that packs plenty of quality protein and healthy carbohydrates for days when you're craving a warm and replenishing meal. It's equally good for preparing your body for vigorous activity the next day, or to help replace glycogen and electrolyte stores after a physically demanding day.

Sweet potatoes are rich in a number of micronutrients, the most prominent of which are vitamin C and beta-carotene; both are powerful antioxidants that can decrease your risk of developing diabetes and colon cancer.

Five Reasons To Eat Navy Beans

If you're keen on limiting dairy and gluten intake, another excellent choice is the nutrient-dense navy bean. On their own, navy beans don't pack much flavour, but if you combine them with a few choice companions, you'll likely be pleasantly surprised to welcome them into your weekly menu plan.

 

Quinoa-Stuffed Avocados Recipe

Though technically a seed, you prepare quinoa as you would any whole grain - two cups of water for every cup of quinoa, bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until done, usually about 10 to 15 minutes for a cup of quiona that will make about 3 to 4 decent servings. Read more »

How to Make Your Own Soy Milk

Contrary to popular belief, soy can be a healthy food choice for the masses. In Korea and Japan, most households enjoy soy in many forms daily. The key is knowing how to prepare it for optimal digestion and nutritional benefit.

If you've never made your own soy milk, I highly recommend that you give it a try. Freshly made soy milk provides flavor and richness that I've yet to find in any store-bought variety. Plus, when you make your own, you can have an entire pitcher of rich, creamy soy milk for about 20 cents.
