Chicken Cassoulet with aromatic herbs Rosemary and Thyme. Boost brain power while you cook!

Not all of our readers eat strictly a vegan or vegetarian diet. We have paleo followers, as well as “normal” families just trying to eat a cleaner, more wholesome diet. No matter what types of food you consume, spend the extra time and money to purchase free range/pasture raised, hormone and antibiotic free meat. Look for local, family owned, non-GMO, and organic options, and always choose pesticide, chemical, and preservative free foods. Nutrition and health come from food first, and the choices you make today impact the future of your health and the health of our planet.

Recipe: Cicatelli Pasta with Pumpkin and Sage. Full of vitamin A and Carotenoids. Also high in fiber.

This is a great fall comfort dish and can be made with or without the prosciutto. Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A and other carotenoids such as beta carotene. It is also high in fiber, so a huge portion of this pasta is not necessary to feel full. Save the pumpkin seeds and roast them for a healthy snack, or save them for use in the Winter Squash Soup Recipe found on the blog!

2 Recipes: Halibut on Chickpea Puree and Egg Lemon Sauce

Halibut on Chickpea Puree

This is my all-time favorite seafood recipe. I’m not the best seafood cook, but this recipe always turns out great. Try to find wild Alaskan halibut. It is higher is nutrients and easier on the environment than farmed halibut. The chickpea puree compliments it well. Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, are very beneficial to your digestive tract. They are high in insoluble fiber and is metabolized by bacteria in your colon to produce short chain fatty acids, which feed the cells of your intestinal wall. This recipe is adapted from one by Sara Moulton.
