Mixed Ceviche (without Onions)

We love ceviche just about every way. This past spring we enjoyed some variations with juices and coconut milk  in Bogotá, Colombia. In my opinion, Colombia has some of the tastiest ceviche. Ours today has three different seafood in it, for taste and texture. We chose to leave the onions out of this dish this time, and we did not miss them, actually. It is very important to get enough lime juice and the proper balance of spices. I am not a big fan of adding spices in which the dish is marinating, rather we prefer to sprinkle cayenne and … Continue reading Mixed Ceviche (without Onions)

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

Halloween Treat Alternatives

Halloween is a fun time for kids, but Henry and I are having a hard time handing out candy to kids these days.  The typical Halloween treat bag will only add to our obesity epidemic, childhood diabetes, and other health and wellness issues.  Don’t rain on my kid’s parade you say?  Well, we actually want to help your kids’ health and try to offer alternatives to hand out this year.  You can make it fun for them with more meaningful treats. I’ve heard people say, “oh, just get some ‘granola bars’ on sale, they are still better than chocolate or … Continue reading Halloween Treat Alternatives

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
