Nutritional Information and Recipes

The more I work with people and food, the more I realize how individual people’s need are. There are so many excellent resources online. Here are a few that I recommend regularly:


Dinner, A Love Story – No special diet here, just well written, humorous anecdotes and recipes that explore parenting, cooking for kids and the importance of the family meal.  She’s written a few cookbooks too.

100 Days of Real Food – How a family changed their diet to whole foods only.

Worlds Healthiest Foods – A good resource for simple whole food recipes and nutrition information about different foods, although I find this one a little hard to navigate.

American Institute of Cancer Research – has nutrition information and a growing database of healthy whole food recipes.

FERMENTED FOODS – I often recommend the consumption of fermented foods to improved digestive health.

Getting started: Summer Bock has many resources and articles as does Cultures for Health

Sauerkraut is a great place to start – cabbage, salt and time!  Here is another sauerkraut recipe.

Or you might be ready for some kimchi!

I love the book “Fermented Vegetables” by Christopher and Kirsten Shockey so much that I wrote a book review about in 2015.


The Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen – Whole food inspiration, with recipes that are mainly gluten, dairy and soy free. Vegetarian, vegan and omnivore options.

Elana’s pantry – A huge resource for gluten free, grain free, paleo and specific carbohydrate diets.

Paleoplan – A paleolithic diet resource.

Every Day Paleo – Another paleolithic diet resource.
