Lechona, Colombian Stuffed Pig

This is a continuation of our Colombian trip this past New Years. This is a traditional dish that is served for special occasions, this time it was served for New Years. It’s originally from the Tolima region of Colombia, but we were staying in Cundinamarca next door in the town of Tocaima.  This popular dish consists of a whole pork stuffed with rice, peas, potatoes and spices, cooked in a brick oven for about ten to twelve hours. Not totally Paleo, but we thought it was awesome to share. The Svendblad’s would Paleoize it and it would be even better.! 🙂 Continue reading Lechona, Colombian Stuffed Pig

8 Nutrition Tips for New Mothers from Nutty Kitchen

What prompted this post you ask? Well, some of you may know, we went to visit our brand new beautiful nephew this past weekend and got to see our brother and sister-in-law. They are all super happy and looking great, but of course we could not help ourselves and throw in a little Nutty Kitchen health tips. So here is what we shared with them. Don’t assume that your doctors are experts on nutrition.  “Less than 6% of current medical school graduates receive adequate nutrition training!”  You will need to do your own studying, reading, and inquiries into what is … Continue reading 8 Nutrition Tips for New Mothers from Nutty Kitchen

Demystify Okra

We have loved Okra for long time. We like ours slimy and non slimy. There are different ways to prepare it, according to taste.  So before we share a couple of interesting ways to make it we thought it important to tell you just a little about this little gem. So what’s in an Okra: Okra is very low in calories, it provides only 30 calories per 100g, it’s a rich source of dietary fiber, minerals, vitamins; it is also recommended in cholesterol controlling and weight reduction programs. The pods contain healthy amounts of vitamin A, and flavonoid anti-oxidants such … Continue reading Demystify Okra

Demystify Tamarind

What is Tamarind?..you ask. It is an absolutely superb fruit which grows on tall trees in South America, Asia and North Africa. The pods are about five inches long and contain seeds and a pulp that become sour when dried. The pulp of the fruit is the main portion of tamarind used in food production. When still slightly unripe, it has a very sharp, sour taste with a high level of acidity. Unripe tamarind is used in many candies and dishes throughout Asia and Latin America. Check out some of these amazing health benefits: The juice is a mild laxative and … Continue reading Demystify Tamarind

Beets, Beets, Beets

We love beets, white with red swirly ones (candy-cane), yellow ones, dark red ones…we love them all. They not only taste amazing, but they are super nutritious too. Beets are high in folic acid (great for pregnant women), potassium, calcium and antioxidants (betacyanin, which is what gives beets their rich red color.). Now the beets we are talking about so far are the beet roots, the portion that grows below the ground. However, leafy beet greens are also very nutritious and can be used for juicing, or cooking as you would any other green. In fact the beet tops are … Continue reading Beets, Beets, Beets

Jicama Root

We haven’t introduced a new vegetable in a while, so today, we wanted to invite you to try some Jicama. It is readily available and it excellent raw or cooked. So what is Jicama? Jicama is the edible starchy, tuberous root of a South American vine of the morning glory family, and is sometimes called a Mexican potato or yambean. It is similar in nutrition to the sweet potato with good con-centrations of vitamin C and potassium, low in sodium, and has fewer calories and carbohydrates that the sweet potato. It’s a good source of fiber. Remember arrowroot? Arrowroot is a common cooking thickening … Continue reading Jicama Root
