I LOVE your site. I just made the cauliflower pizza tonight and it was AMAZING. I defiantly will be making it again, and next time taking your advice about freezing one. Just was wondering what other recpies of yours you recommend to use my leftover goat cheese with. I bought a little too much because it was on sale and want to put it to good use!
You could try using it in my Eggplant Lasagna recipe, or throw it in an omelet! I also love sprinkling soft goat cheese chunks over my salads.
Made this for dinner enough and it was phenomenal – my husband (who hates cauliflower) also loved it! It`s a keeper I`ll make again and again.
I’m looking for the recipe pineapple whips. Sounds so good to me.
I want to apologize in advance for the ignorant question I am going to ask, but the more I read all these amazing recipes (especially the desserts!), the more I catch myself wondering: “now, is this a starch or a protein overall, i.e. should I eat this dessert after a carb meal or after a protein meal?” I realize most of the desserts have some kind of a sweetener, so probably that would make them a carb, but, Megan, would you please, please, please, put also the information into your recipes about what the end product is, i.e. where it falls into the Food Combining Chart? Many thanks in advance!!
All you have to do is look at the ingredients to determine which category they fall into. For example, the cauliflower pizza crust is made with eggs, goat cheese and cauliflower, so looking at the Food Combining Chart you can assume that it is a “flesh” meal. Try not to think in terms of carbs and protein, because that can get confusing. (i.e. Honey is neutral in the digestive system, so including it does not make the overall result a “carb.”)
We go by the terms I use in the chart, which are starches, flesh, nuts/seeds and fresh fruit. Almost all of my non-dessert recipes are properly combined, so it’s easy to determine their category– it’s either a starch, flesh or nut/seed meal. The baked dessert recipes are NOT always properly combined, because I consider them a “treat” and not something you’d consume daily. Almost all of my raw dessert recipes are properly combined, falling into the starch category if they use avocado, or the nut/seed category if they feature nuts and seeds.
Thanks for the reply, I’ll try to do that! I’ve been on a food-combining way of eating for years, but I was only dividing food into carbs and proteins, so now having few more categories is a bit confusing for me Also, I’ve always considered nuts & seeds a protein, so I was happy to include them in my salads, together with cheese, eggs, etc., so now the fact that I should eat your delicious nut desserts on their own is a bit of a pain
Just dropping a thank you on one of your general pages.
Stumbled on your stuff today and you’ve got an absolutely wonderful website. I love pretty much all of your recipes and am so happy to have found an accessible and informative website which caters for all my food preferences in one go!
Great stuff, and thanks for all of the hard effort you’ve put into it! My family’s tummies are sure to appreciate it.
Just wanted to tell you i love your website , I have always counted calories fat and carbs I’m sure sacrificing nutrition and not allowing myself to indulge. I started searching healthy non dairy gluten free recipes after a good friend told me about her raw diet. I have tried your Almond Fudge and Macaroons amazing and can’t wait to try more! Thanks again Kelly
OMG…… Just made the Strawberry Shake and broccoli chips with yogurt ranch dressing……. Heaven!!! Sweet and Salty without the guilt or extra pounds!!!
You are the best Megan!!
Love Love Love your website and recipes! My first was the bacon, egg and guyere casserole… thank you for all the information and inspiration!
I saw your website and started to research about using Henna. I have been using permanent or semi permanent hair color at a salon and was recently diagnosed with breast cancer stage 1. My question is this: is using foils of semi permanent hair color safe to avoid my scalp absorbing the color during touch ups? I am going gray and would like to cover it, and I don’t think I want to go all over red and do the henna. I am a auburn brown now about a shade 7 when he colors it and he has also put in blonde highlights that pop out when my color fades. I believe they use Redken at the salon I go to. ….thanks
Hi there! I recently found your website and absolutely love it! I am strongly considering doing the same program you did through IIN but at this point it’s just a matter of timing
I wanted to ask, are all recipes on the Detoxinista your own? I have been working on creating my own recipes from scratch and can only hope I have this much ability!
