grilled chicken tikka

This favorite recipe packs lots of flavor with very little effort.  When using curry powder, make sure that you haven't had it in your cupboard for more than a year.  Flavor and nutrient will fade with those forgotten spices, so head to your nearest store with a good bulk spice section and stock up on some new curry powder.  Common Crown in Gloucester has two great options, one with salt (a little spicy) and one without salt (more mild).  The longer you let this marinate the more flavor and more tender the chicken will be.  I usually aim for about an hour. 


Kale and Cabbage Slaw with Pistachio vinaigrette

Kale and cabbage, both members of the cruciferous family, are anti-inflammatory and rich in sulfur and vitamin C. Sulfur-rich foods can help the body detoxify from Lyme disease die off more effectively. 


Spring Asparagus & Kumquat Relish

This is an incredibly clean side dish that pairs beautifully with grilled, seared or baked chicken or halibut.  It is gluten and dairy free, and can easily be modified for folks working to clear up SIBO (substitute shallots with sliced scallion tops, and if you can't do asparagus use any other green vegetable that works for you).  

Gluten free quiche recipe

This is a great make-ahead weekday breakfast or snack for the whole family, and can be eaten warm or at room temperature. Although this does contain dairy, it is far lighter and much more nutrient-dense than traditional quiche- Enjoy!
