Low-Carb Parmesan Truffle Fries (Low-Carb, Keto, Vegetarian)

I love me some truffle fries or any variation of them, so to discover that there was a way I could enjoy them on a low-carb diet made me so very happy! The secret? Jiacama root! While technically a tuber, jicama is low in carbs (11g in a cup, about half of which is fiber)…

My Battle with Chronic Inflammation: Insights from Ayurveda

Why Ayurveda? After going keto/ low-carb in April, most of my brain-fog and double-vision dissolved, my energy went up, and I was finally able - or mostly able, at least - to function like a normal, productive human being again. I thought that, finally, I had things figured out! But then summer came, I was…

3 Days on the Desert Island of Lemnos

"There is a desert I long to be walking. A wide emptiness. Peace beyond any understanding of it" - Rumi There’s something about the desert.

After almost two years of practically no GI issues (I credit Paleo for that), last month I started experiencing atypical bloating and pain in the abdomen. I upped the amount of probiotics (sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha) I was consuming, but still things didn't really feel right. So, I took a closer look at my diet and…

Anti-Inflammatory Golden Milk Chia Pudding (Low-Carb, Dairy-Free, Paleo, Vegan, Keto)

Chia pudding, when done right, is one of the best high-fat desserts and on-the-go breakfasts out there! Yet, for a long time, chia pudding wasn't my jam. I tried various recipes, but I always ended up with a watered-down, kinda "meh" consistency. I like rich, decadent flavors that make my brain melt in a fit…

White Chocolate Drink with Cardamom (Paleo, Dairy-Free, Keto, Low-Carb)

I find hot drinks very soothing for the nervous system and crave them even when it's 100 degrees outside! Although, usually, I'll whip up a quick matcha or spirulina latte with some ghee and coconut milk, sometimes I crave something a little more decadent! This white chocolate recipe combines a rich and indulgent creamy taste and…
