Soup is one of the most overlooked ways for incorporating a rich variety of vegetables in your diet. That goes double for summer soups. We’re loving this keto- and Primal-friendly Zucchini Basil Soup that can be served either warm or chilled any day of the year. But the nutritional goodness isn’t just in the vegetables and herbs. It also serves up the richness of full-fat coconut milk (feel free to use whole milk or cream if you prefer regular dairy) and all the benefits of collagen protein with the help of Bonafide Organic Chicken Bone Broth. Enjoy—and be sure to check out our community giveaway with Bonafide Provisions below!
When you stop to think about it, mushrooms are remarkable.
They’re closer to animals than plants on the tree of life.
They can break down plastic and petroleum.
The single largest organism on the planet is an underground honey fungus spanning almost 3 miles in the the state of Oregon.
They carry messages along their underground fungal networks using neurotransmitters that are very similar to the ones our brains use.
They’re a kind of “forest internet” which plants and trees use to communicate with each other.
And, as it turns out, they possess and confer some very impressive health and therapeutic effects. Several years ago, I highlighted the culinary varieties and explored their considerable health benefits. Go read that, then come back here because I’m going to talk about the different types of adaptogenic mushrooms today. These are the real heavy hitters, the ones that appear to supercharge immune systems, stimulate neuronal growth, improve memory and focus, pacify the anxious mind, increase the libido, and enhance sleep quality.
How many carbs can you eat in a sitting and still “stay keto”? What constitutes a “keto meal”?
I’ve gotten many questions about this topic.
First of all, let’s get this out of the way: Keto is not a religion that punishes heretics with eternal damnation (or eternal reliance on exogenous sugar for energy). This post is not intended to make people feel guilty for eating five grams of carbs over the” limit.” It’s not even intended to set a hard limit in stone. It’s simply to provide people who care about this sort of thing a basic, admittedly rough, guideline for staying below the keto carb threshold within meals throughout the day.
The first time I had cauliflower and mushrooms together, it was a beautiful moment. (Thank you to that incredible German cook.) It was also a game changer for how I saw cauliflower. There’s no error in calling these steaks here. When you pair cauliflower and mushrooms together, in this case a delicious adaptogen mushroom mix from friends at Four Sigmatic, what you have is a smoky-tasting, umami-rich feast. I could easily put away a few of these all by themselves, but what I love even more is the added kick that paprika and fresh chimichurri (one of my favorite sauces) give these steaks. I can’t think of a better vegetarian- and vegan-friendly dish—one that will bring even meat lovers to the table (and asking for more). Enjoy, everyone.
