Many people aren’t too familiar with tofu. Tofu is one of those versatile, can’t go wrong plant-proteins. I always make sure I buy organic and if you can find it, I’d recommend you get organic and sprouted tofu. Having the tofu sprouted makes it easier for the body to break down. Tofu doesn’t have much of it’s own flavor, you can really add tasty spices. One trick I use: I squeeze my tofu between a few sheets of paper towel to get rid off some of the water before...

Beans are another source of an easy, plant-based protein. Many come in cans, which makes them easy to have around, and if you prefer to use dried beans and cook them yourself, even better. Bottom line is: they are easy to store and use as they keep well. This bean dip can be prepared with any kind of bean that is listed on your plan. Again, it’s an easy recipe to batch, and take with you. I love to add fresh herbs to this and image myself somewhere in the Mediterranean, over looking the...

Yogurt is a natural probiotic food and is well balanced with proteins and good fats, make sure to always use full fat dairy. You can use cow, goat, sheep or soy yogurt, see which...

Your Questions about Nutritional Yeast, Answered!

inspiration Dec 29, 2017

Nutritional Yeast is one of those unpretentious, easy to overlook superfoods.

I am all about finding and using high quality foods and adding more nutrient density to our foods to give our bodies more nutrition to thrive. So many of our foods (even organic ones!) contain less nutrients due to over farming and harvesting practices. Most fruits and veggies get harvested before they are at peak ripeness and then get transported all over the world.

Nutritional yeast is one of those powerhouse...

Nut and Seed Salad

lunch/dinner recipes Dec 04, 2017

Many Metabolic Balance® Plans have Nut and Seed combos as a protein option. Nuts and seeds are another nutritional powerhouse, and a great alternative to animal proteins and cereals. When you combine almonds with either pumpkin or sunflower seeds, you’ll get a well balanced amino acid (protein) profile. In addition to vitamins B and E, they contain abundant dietary fiber, which aids digestion.

Before consumption, they should be roasted, soaked or cooked. 

This is an easy recipe...

recipes Dec 04, 2017

This 100% Rye Sourdough Loaf isn't just any bread, it’s a superfood!

You may wonder, why can you eat only rye bread while you are on your Metabolic Balance® plan?

Rye has been shown to be more beneficial on blood sugar levels, as it takes the body longer to break down the carbohydrates in rye than in other flours. Read the study on this here. Many people who cannot tolerate wheat gluten can tolerate the...
