Swordfish Steaks Recipe

Fish is a stable in my diet. More specifically fresh, wild caught fish. One of my favorite kinds of fish to eat are swordfish steaks as they are nutrient dense and very easy to find in most grocery stores. Swordfish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, and vitamin D. (The thyroid appreciates those nutrients!) While creating this recipe I was on a very strict low FODMAP and AIP diet.…

Air Fryer Stuffed Apple Dessert

The Air Fryer Version of Baked Apples Dessert for me generally means some sort of a fruit concoction. Due to the cooler temperatures warm fruit is a great ayurvedic option for dessert.

Oven Baked Maduros (Sweet Plantains)

As a “super food for your gut”, plantains are a staple food in my diet. This resistant starch is packed with nutrients and loaded with health benefits. As a resistant starch, plantains don’t get digested in the small intestine. Instead, they ferment in the large intestine and feed beneficial gut bacteria. This improves gut health, encourages high levels of insulin sensitivity, and helps keep the colon healthy (thank you too,…
