Recipe Potpourri

Today I thought I'd share recipes with you from food/health blogs I follow. It'll give you a bit more variety than the vegan/vegetarian fare I've been dishing out...although I notice I didn't stray too far.

Gluten-Free Pancakes @AlkalineHealth
Gluten-Free Raison Nut Pancakes from Jeff Yentzer serves up some yummy pancakes for dinner (that's right... dinner), but you can have them for breakfast. I follow Jeff for his tips on keeping my diet slightly alkalizing. The typical diet of artificial ingredients, red meat, and sugary foods is very acidic in the body. An acidic body translates to a weak immune system.

Chicken, Black Bean Soup @Kaylyn'sKitehen
Chicken, Black Bean and Cilantro Soup from Kaylyn's Kitchen. Kaylyn serves up a regular helping of healthy recipes. I can modify them if they have ingredients I avoid, like chicken. Take a tour on her sight. You'll see there's lots of delicious stuff to add to your culinary repertoire.

White Bean Soup @ChezUs
White Bean Soup from Chez Us. Denise and Lenny, a San Francisco couple—she cooks, he eats. Plenty of good food to consume at this site.

Broccoli Salad from Dr. Weil's Daily Blog. Dr. Weil is a pioneer in Integrative Medicine, teaching that making prudent daily decisions about diet, exercise, stress management and how we connect to others is key to optimum health.

Shaved Fennel Salad and Cannellini Beans and Red Onion from Over the Hill and On a Roll. Interesting recipes by Danny whose primary interest is digital photography, particularly of food. Danny hopes to spark your creativity through mouth watering photography, I'll take that he means creativity in cooking.

Chocolate Mint Brownies @SimplySugar&GlutenFree
Top it all off with Chocolate Mint Brownies from Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free. Amy Green bakes up healthier desserts that are sugar-free (no offending chemical kind either) and gluten-free. St. Patrick's Day may be over, but it's never too late for a green dessert, especially when it looks this beautiful.

Finally I must include The Vegan Epicurean. Created by a 40-something woman who loves to cook. A cancer diagnosis caused a change to a healthier diet for her and her husband. If you want to know the daily details of a healthy menu, check out her site. She is amazing in my book!

Let me know how you like these recipes once you try them.
