Fresh herbs add flavor to our Clean Eating recipes
Growing Your Own Herbs is a simple way to add depth to the salads you are growing. It also allows you to add a lot of flavor to many recipes without all the expense of buying more fresh herbs than you can use and then throw away half of them a week later.
Buying herbs in supermarkets can be expensive. When it comes to buying culinary herbs the best alternative is growing your own. It provides ample supply for your needs and even a novice can be quite successful at raising herbs.

This is the best of Clean Eating – Growing your own Salad
Growing Your Own Salads can be a lot of fun and you will enjoy salads made with foods that you personally grew, more than any salad you have ever purchased.
We really enjoy growing and harvesting our own Salads. Green salads that are made fresh daily always seem to taste special. Other salads such as potato or a pasta salad is usually better if left overnight in the refrigerator to allow all the flavors to meld together. Here we are talking about green salads, fresh lettuces, ripe tomatoes, herbs and various vegetables. I want to see them at the Chefs Kitchen Table daily. We like to make them a complete healthy meal. Here in Mexico, the mid-day meal is eaten around 2 o’clock in the afternoon. It is larger that the evening meal and for good reasons, which we will cover in another article

When you make your first zucchini pasta, you will fall in love with this little gadget.
I wrote this post about Spiralizing Your Vegetables a year ago but we are having zucchini pasta for dinner today and I thought it might be a nice time so share it with you again. I love using kitchen tools to make food look more presentable or at least, not the way most guests expect it to look. As a chef, The way I present food at the Chefs Kitchen Table is equally as important as the taste of the food. Spiralizing is one of the ways I achieve that look.
The spiralizer might sound like something from a Continue reading
Buckwheat pancakes with fresh fruit can be served at any meal. It does not need to be just for breakfast. And they are gluten free. Buckwheat is a berry and has nothing to do with the wheat family and while considered a grain by some, it is a berry from a flowering plant. When buying buckwheat flour it is still wise to make use that it is certified gluten-free because there could be items with gluten produced in the same facility.

Grilled Lemon-Ginger Chicken is the item for today. I don’t think there is anyone that likes ginger more than I do. I use it in my morning green tea along with turmeric and again during the day. The flavors we add with herbs and spices is what makes our foods what they are. While you get great flavor from something like an apple or an orange, foods like chicken breasts need help to give them flavor. So today we are adding ginger and garlic along with the citrus flavor of fresh lemon (or limes if you prefer) to give some taste to the chicken breast. Continue reading

When Grilling Outdoors Think Fruit. We covered a little about veggies last week but have you ever given much thought to grilling fruit. I must admit that the first time I grilled watermelon I was a little nervous that the water would put at the coals but everything worked out fine, including thrilling the grandchildren who were as interested in trying grilled watermelon as I was.

Delicious Grilled Veggies are a big favorite at the Chefs kitchen table. We love them, not only for their great taste but also because of all the healthy vitamins and minerals that they give our body and mind to work with.
As summer approaches and you break out the grill, your diet can take a beating with too many high-fat foods. One of the easiest and definitely the most delicious ways to eat healthy is by grilling veggies.

Grilling Burgers Outdoors has a special meaning up north where some have been living inside for months while snow and sometimes ice covered the ground and it was just too darn cold to be cooking outdoors. The grill had been covered in late fall and the long wait for spring and the return to the grill begin. But now the weather is changing, green is returning to the lawn and trees and it is time to uncover the grill and start planning the meals. Continue reading
