But what if I told you that your diet doesn’t have to be bland, but rather a door to delicious possibilities? That you can indulge in mouthwatering meals that not only satisfy your taste buds but also soothe your skin? Let’s embark on this flavorful journey together, where each recipe brings you one step closer to freedom from discomfort and a renewed joy in eating.


Recipe 1: Quinoa Salad with Roasted Vegetables and Lemon-Ghee Dressing


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 small head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 cup diced rutabaga
  • 1 cup chopped leeks
  • 2 tablespoons ghee, melted
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onions for garnish


  1. Pre-cook Quinoa: Rinse 1 cup of quinoa under cold water. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the quinoa, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and let it sit covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

  2. Roast Vegetables: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Toss the cauliflower, rutabaga, and leeks with 1 tablespoon of melted ghee, salt, and pepper. Spread on a baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes until tender and golden.

  3. Prepare Dressing: Whisk together the juice of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon of melted ghee, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

  4. Combine: In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa with the roasted vegetables. Pour the lemon-ghee dressing over the salad and toss to combine.

  5. Serve: Garnish with chopped green onions. Serve warm or at room temperature.



Recipe 2: Hearty Bison and Vegetable Soup

  3. Simmer Soup: Return the bison to the pot. Add the beef bone broth, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour, or until the bison is tender.

  4. Finish: Stir in the juice of 1/2 lemon just before serving.
