One Saturday a few weeks ago, I needed a protein packed bite to eat right after my workout but was short on time since I needed to be at the grocery store within the hour. So what’s a culinary health resource foodie to do?!?!?
Since I was at the end of the week, there were only small amounts of my weekly haul of kale, spinach, green onions, and fresh herbs left over in the fridge crisper unused from the week’s meals.
Now I have posted previously on how to make a delicious ‘green’ omelette, but this is just a reminder that when you’re bored with the hum-drum of scrambled, fried, and/or boiled eggs, it’s always a great idea to use what you have on hand in the fridge to make something protein rich, folded(lol!), and tasty!
And what delicious warm beverage do I sip in the mornings while feasting on my breakfast? Why a cup of DELICIOUS coffee of course! But not just any cup of coffee, my Bio Coffee! Bio Coffee is the ONLY true alkaline coffee on the shelves today with a full serving of vegetables and wheatgrass! Ok, a bit much for your usual morning java? Seems to good to be true? A 'healthy' coffee with all this goodness and mercy couldn't possibly taste good, right?
This satisfying vitamin-rich blend reminds me of a favorite cappuccino mix from a certain company with an 'international' name. It's truly an amazing treat that my hubby and I enjoy literally every morning. The aroma is so enticing that you have to indulge in a cup! No worries if you need it to be a tad bit sweeter, simply add a tablespoon of your favorite plant based creamer and WHOLA!
So while you're reducing food waste by making my Easy Refrigerator Greens Omelette, DON'T FORGET get your cup of culinary health morning joe!
What are some dishes you create from left over items in your fridge? Let me know in the comments below!
For the record, I was raised on the goodness and mercy of a big pot of greens sitting on the stove on any given Sunday. Simmering bushels of leafy collards crowded with several ham hocks, onions, and peppers. Ohhhhh the days!
Don't get me wrong, this leafy vegetable remains a cornerstone dish in my kitchen and I'm certain many other kitchens alike. However, once you know better you absolutely have no choice but to do better. So after tossing the ham hocks (nope, not even a smoked turkey wing!), I imagined a healthier and just as tasty version of this essential green. The creation of my Quick Sautéed Collards w/ Garlic & Sherry helped me maintain the best of both worlds.
This delicious health-full plant is prepared in such a way that the vitamins, minerals, and valuable nutrients stay locked in- hence the 'quick' in the recipe title, lol! Unlike back in the day where that pot of greens would stay boiling on the stove ALL DAY long!
*History Taste Bud*: Pot Liquor, as it's often referred, is essentially these liquid/juices from the greens that cooked all day on that very stove in most African American homes. This pot liquor was oftentimes consumed separately as an additional supplement and also given to babies for nourishment because of its rich nutrient content.*
And the texture! The sherry adds a tasty component that helps in breaking down the leaves with added flavor that matches a days worth of cooking. These greens are amazingly tender, delicious, and so filling that you'll want to make more! And that's a good thing health wise as well as time wise- I mean really, the whole dish is ready from prep to plate in less than 15 minutes! This dish is also heart healthy with the use of garlic and olive oil in combination with this vitamin and mineral rich green. What's not to love about that?
What do you like to eat with your greens? let me know in the comments below!
Ever been in the produce section of the grocery store, and while picking up a package of your favorite salad blend you notice that container of broccoli shreds? You know, it resembles the bag of shredded cabbage and carrots for a make-quick coleslaw, but it's green?
Well I've grabbed a bag here and there, usually when it's warmer out though. I'll mix it with a zesty garlic dressing and toss in some grilled shrimp for a light and delicious quick summer dinner. But what else could I use it for? I mean it's broccoli for crying out loud! Accompanied with nutrient rich carrots and purple cabbage. It's a package full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber goodness and mercy! What else would make it sing as a side or a main?
Enter Broccoli Slaw & Rice Noodle Stir-fry!
What an absolute genius way to make this convenient crisp and crunchy veggie mix sing! I mean, in 15 minutes or less this light and healthy dish comes together with great texture and Asian flare! Kicking it up a notch and stepping outside-of-the box, I opt for the rice 'noodle' as opposed to the more traditional long or short rice grain. Add your choice of grilled, baked, or broiled protein such as chicken, tofu, and/or seafood, and you're set for a one pan experience! However, my preference is having it alone as a noodle bowl with the addition of only a splash of sriracha.
I say an 'additional' splash of sriracha because the recipe calls for my ACAOF Stir-fry Sauce to be mixed in the dish which includes the spicy condiment. Now, feel free to use your favorite store bought sauce, I just love this sauce because I know exactly what's in it and don't have to worry about the extra ingredients I don't need.
ACAOF Stir-fry Sauce
It's simple, just mix together:
This sauce brings the dish together in such a delicious way, it's no wonder I chose to devour it all by itself!
How would you serve this dish? Are you solo, or would you top it?

*happy NATIONAL TACO DAY*
Even though the shell has been replaced with a cool and refreshing crisp lettuce leaf, the warm vibrant and rustic flavors of the curry spice balance this one-handed masterpiece perfectly. With Abstract Spice as the all natural seasoning base for flavor, the added rich fall spices of curry and paprika are heightened for a more distinguished tasting taco. Taking this flavor to an additional level is the arugula. Usually I have fresh cilantro as a garnish for my tacos that packs bright flavor, however, the 'peppery' bite of arugula deepens the warm spice tones to pair even more harmoniously with these tacos. Finishing with a squeeze of lime adding delicious zing to the layers of flavor and freshness, these tacos are a force to be reckoned with!
Like with many of my newer recipes, my Green Goodness Curry Taco Boats also include simple ingredients and preparation making it an ideal recipe to prepare during the week. You can even prepare the curry seasoned filling ahead of time and just heat and serve when you like. These are also super convenient for packing for lunch!
HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR TACOS? LET ME KNOW AND MAYBE I'LL FEATURE YOUR RECIPE IN A POST!
Hey hon! Because salmon is not always in season I try at all times to get it wild, obviously even when it IS in season. However, if it's out of season I try to purchase it at @costco where they have a sticker on the package of their fresh salmon when it's out of season that states it's antibiotic free/responsibly raised. Try to go to a fish market if possible though. You know our ❤30349❤ connect 'Fulton Bay Fish Market' on Roosevelt is a trusted neighborhood spot- but remember they're closed Sun-Tues😉. And if you want a larger selection, you can't beat @yourdekalbfarmersmarket - open err'day from 9am-9pm! (except for Christmas and Thanksgiving). As far as the types of fish that I ADORE, and of course good for you😜, are trout(my fav right now❤), good ol' whitting is awesome as well. Cod is also an excellent thicker meaty fish compared to these others I mentioned. Hope this helps babe!! Let me know!!
What are your reservations about fish? What is your favorite way to prepare it? Let me Know inthe comments below and maybe I'll try it out and feature you in my next fish post!
And can you believe it, they have the nerve to be better for you than your standard white flour based pancake too!
Around this time right at the turn of the season, grocery store shelves are packed with pumpkin spices throughout! I snagged my spice at one of my favorite farmer's markets that I have been patroning for as long as I can remember! Yep, none other than Your Dekalb Farmer's Market! My goodness, they have everything in there!
These Fall Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes are sure to become a season tradition in our home. Obviously butter and maple syrup are a must. But adding warm spiced apples on top would definitely set these babies off right!
There's no better way to say 'Welcome Fall'!

These bars are perfectly convenient to grab-go-and-toss in your lunch or workout bag. I enjoy a bar 30 minutes prior to my workout to get the fuel needed to power through my workout with a 'boosted' calorie burn weapon!
The sweet-tart juicy burst from the dried cherries combined with the creamy chocolate goodness of the chips is like a symphony of flavors backed with the satisfying crunch of the walnuts. While I would not recommend these bars as a dessert treat since their sweetness is mainly derived from the cherries and dark chocolate alone, this dense bar is a super delicious treat that motivates me to live my best workout!

Well, it depends ultimately on what you're looking for. Salads are light and refreshing meals that don't make you feel guilty...right? Well you may be surprised to find the calorie counts to be high and health ratings low in some of your favorite salads. This is largely due to the high-fat content in the dressings that make them taste sooooo good! For the amount of dressing added to these 'healthy' salads from our favorite restaurants, calories can skyrocket upwards of 300 calories alone! Not only that, but add the cheese, nuts, dried fruits, meats protein, boiled egg, croutons, etc., and your healthy-option-salad is running neck-and-neck with, if not exceeding the calorie count of your average cheese burger combo meal.
No fear, AC Art Of Food is here! My Black Bean & Greens Salad is a super healthy flavorful one that includes a modest selection of ingredients that are flavor-packed and nutrient rich. Simplicity speaks volumes!!
RULES OF THUMB:
- Less is best- choose your favorite 3 ingredients, no more than 4 and add to your salad greens.
- Oil & vinegar, or my favorite, lemon & oil are super delicious with a pinch of sea salt, garlic powder, and fresh cracked pepper- don't knock it 'till you try it, you'll be surprised!
- Want more of a creamy taste- make avocado one of your toppings with the dressing option above.
- WRAPS: Size is everything! Smaller wraps tend to run between 75-120 calories, much lower than their larger counterparts and are just as filling! Portion control is key- EVERYTHING in moderation.

I’m super excited to share this, so come along and join me in this true journey of culinary health! Comment below with your thoughts on eating to increase the health level of your blood.
An awesome not-so-new Super Food I adore is amazing matcha! I was already a fan of green tea when I discovered this powerfully beneficial beverage. I first became aware of matcha several years ago from Dr. Oz and became obsessed with finding out more!
Simply put, matcha is finely ground green tea leaves- the best of the best tea leaves that is. Matcha has been a beneficial zen hot beverage of choice in Japanese culture for thousands of years and is a ceremonial tea tradition. Similar to the already cancer fighting, immune boosting properties, and weight loss aid of the traditional green tea leaves that are steeped for tea, matcha is that much more potent. Matcha also breaks down fat in the body from entering into cells which makes it an amazing defense against cardiovascular disease and obesity. Be mindful that matcha’s fine green powder contains about 30 grams of caffeine. However, this caffeinated ‘boost’ is more of a calm alertness as opposed to the jolt-then-crash that coffee often times causes.
It is suggested that you have a small bamboo whisk in order to blend the fine grounded powder completely into the boiling water. The actual process of whisking the tea is itself a traditional Japanese zen ritual, and it is highly recommended to prepare this tea properly. However, I never picked up a whisk, but I did rediscover an alternate way of dissolving and getting the most out of my sipping. Actually my Aunt Colette taught me this process years ago with her coffee:
- Add your small amount of matcha powder to the cup.
- Add in a liquid sweetener such as agave or honey.
- The sticky texture adheres to the fine powder and dissolves it as you stir this mixture together with a fork. You’ll notice a deep green shiny paste.
- Mix in your hot (not boiling) water and you have a delicious zen, disease fighting beverage to get your day going. I like mine with a touch of almond creamer.
This beautiful antioxidant green powder can be found in health food stores, some mainstream groceries, specialty food stores, vitamin shops, and as well as online. Unlike regular, yet beneficial green tea, matcha costs a pretty penny. However, a very small amount is needed when preparing this tea. Beware of the premixed matcha ‘drinks’ that are heavy ladened with sugar and milk cultures that can defeat the entire purpose of sipping this green medicinal gem. So make sure you check the contents and seek a 100% matcha powder. This way you have control with your add-ins of sweetners, non-dairy creamers (latte), etc.
An interesting find in my research is that of the lead content in matcha. Most of the superb quality green tea leaves are grown and harvested in Japan where the natural elements of preserving the tea leaves increase the levels of this element. Approximately 90% of the lead remains in the leaf after being steeped for traditional green tea. However, since matcha is the actual green tea leaves themselves grounded, all is consumed. For this reason, I would suggest one cup in a day. And remember when steeping regular bag tea not to leave the tea bag in your cup. Steep to your level of taste strength, which should be anywhere between 2-4 minutes, then toss.
Not much of a tea fan? No problem! Matcha powder can be added to pancakes and waffles, smoothies, salads, cocktails, ice cream, many pastry items such as cookies and brownies, and so much more! Just a teaspoon of matcha goes a long way and adds endless possibilities to your culinary creations. There's something for everyone to enjoy to benefits of this ancient healing powder!

As I glanced over at the fruit on my counter, I noticed an almost too juicy pink grapefruit that had about one more day left before I would toss it into my compost bin. That’s when the ‘AHA!’ hit me! Why not?! It’s in the citrus family but with a sweet and bitter twist at the same time. Why not try a different and complex flavor boost with grapefruit? And it did not hurt one bit for me to be reminded as I gazed out my kitchen window that fennel was growing beautifully in my garden this season- I thought it the perfect accompaniment with this fruit. What’s more, fennel greens/tops pack a similar, yet more potent punch in comparison to dill.
End result, my favorite seafood seasoning of the summer! These flavor combinations resulted in this trout being off the taste charts!!
Now, I simply adore the sharp zip in flavor I get from citrus when enjoying seafood, but all seasonal fruit is fair game!!😋

The Verdict: I felt the crab croquettes lacked flavor. I was somewhat disappointed that I didn't taste the sea-sweetness of fresh crab in these little bites. While I was thankful they were not loaded down with stuffing/breading like some, basic bland crabmeat rolled in panko and deep fried, unfortunately allowed much to be desired. Not to mention I was saddened by the very sauce I've seen Chef make on TV. The 'Comeback Sauce' reminded me of the combination of a well known salad dressing sandwich spread and ketchup mix. Thankfully my palate was saved with the broccolini which was prepared to perfection! And the hubby's club sandwich was fresh, delicious, and exactly how I would make it!! Trust, adding sliced boiled egg and avocado to a traditional club sandwich makes everything right with the world!re to edit.
The Verdict: AWESOME!! I do believe my favorite part of the bar though was the amazing variety of sweet and luscious tropical fruit- truly earth's candy if I ever tasted. Our amazing server Bridgette gave us an awesome tip: Come down to dine 30 minutes prior to the end of the buffet. That way we'd pretty much be satisfied for most of the day! Boy was she ever right! And as an added bonus, Bridgette became such an insight to me as our 'culinary health' discussions regarding blood conditioning provided validation for a facet of AC Art Of Food. She was and is a true gem!
The Verdict: A toe-wiggling winner!
The Verdict: The perfect ending bite to a perfect vacation!
All the more reason to Jazz Up The Ordinary!
I try my very best to develop and enhance recipes that are the tastiest versions of plants. While I have a few tricks up my sleeve that produce delicious outcomes, one of my favorite methods is using infused oils and vinegars- full flavor less guilt. You can always make your own collection of these tasty culinary accessories and bottle them, as I tend to do from time to time. But what I love to do (and most convenient) is pick up the delicious bottles of gourmet oils and vinegars from the foodie aisles of my neighborhood TJMaxx, HomeGoods, and Marshall’s.
From exotic herb steeped vinegars to rare truffle and fruit infused oils, you can’t beat these culinary-dream-finds that for the most part are under $10! And some for as low as $4.99! Plus the flavor enhancement it adds is unbeatable. Both my roasted green beans and grilled rainbow trout were popping with amazing flavor. The added benefit also is that these oils are healthy ones full of the 'good fat' our bodies and brains need to thrive. The general base of the oils I find are olive(virgin and extra virgin), grape seed, and avocado. Did I mention these make wonderful gifts for the foodie in your life? #WINNING
So the next time you’re out shopping for throw pillows for your couch, or that perfect dress for your vacation, don’t forget to visit the specialty foodie aisles and grab a few bottles of these treasures, your tastebuds will thank you!
Be sure to comment below and share your fav finds from these stores that you’ve discovered, I’d love to hear about them!
This very well may be one of the easiest, quickest, healthiest, and super delicious ‘no fuss’ way to celebrate with your tastebuds as well as your eyes! Super simple because all you need is fresh veggies (or fruit), Abstract Spice, sticks, and a fire! Now, I do generally like to add a drizzle of flavored olive oil once the kabobs are done for an extra layer of flavor!
5 KABOB KICK-OF TIPS
- Be sure to soak your wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes prior to making your kabobs. This prevents potential mini fires when setting the sticks directly on the heat.
- For best results, DO NOT soak/marinate your veggies/fruit. While this is an awesome flavor booster, it doesn’t work well with kabobs simply because marinating veggies and fruit will leave them wilted and soggy. Not ideal for grilling kabobs since the heat will already soften the veggies/fruit in the process.
- Try to pierce each ingredient as much in the center as you possibly can. This helps with balanced cooking and easier eat-ability(yep, made that word right on up, lol!). There’s nothing worse than going in for a bite of your kabob and having pieces fall off the skewer because they were pierced too close to the edge.
- When grilling your kabobs, temperatures may vary based on a traditional charcoal or gas grill. For this reason watch your kabobs and turn when the char on your veggies is prevalent on the edges, maintaining the veggies still at their bright color in the middle. This way you get the desired bbq flavor with the veggies still crisp and vibrant. Try turning approximately every 2 minutes.
- If adding an animal protein to your kabobs, be sure they are in small portions to adhere to the short cooking time on the grill. For this reason, marinating land protein such as chicken or beef is essential since this process breaks down the meat. However, for seafood, I do not recommend marinating since sea protein cooks super fast. *For contamination purposes, prepare animal protein and vegges separately*
FRUIT: Pineapple, Nectarines, Watermelon, and other melon are seasonal and perfect for the grill. Because of their firmer flesh they can withstand direct heat better than most other fruit, maintaining and even intensifying their flavor!**
Pretty easy, huh? Feel free to throw in marinated tofu or tempeh as well! The veggies/fruit you select to go on your skewers is completely up to you. This also goes for the order in which you stack them. Personally I always shoot for the 'rainbow' in trying to find the brightest most vibrant plants, which coincidentally are so easy to find in the summer!
We're not perfect, and neither is cooking food. Many people make the assumption that because you can cook you automatically are an awesome baker...WRONG! Baking is more like chemistry and 'exacts'. See, no, that's not cooking at all. Something tastes off? Add a pinch of this or a dash of that to balance the taste. Texture of your sauce too loose? Make a slurry with cornstarch or flour to thicken it up. You can even step it up a bit and add pureed white beans. See, you can't do this in baking. Your soufflé didn't rise? Oh well, you gotta toss that bad boy and start over again!
So enjoy this delicious egg pie that you can serve for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner with a salad on the side. And don't forget to make your own. Don't like shrimp? Add cooked chicken or omit it all together. Not a fan of kale? Spinach is a delicious and just as healthy substitute!
Ahh, the beauty of cooking! Where do you think I came up with my mantra, Make It Your Own? You see, with cooking, you can!
