Nutrition
is at the core of
everything your body
does for you.

From health to sickness,
from energy to lethargy,
from happiness to depression –
the necessary nutrients your cells
receive or do not receive affect
everything about you. If only one cell
in your body is deprived, it slowly affects
the rest of you.

How should you
clean your teeth?
Let me count the ways!
When I was a kid
going to the dentist,
my dentist always told me
I had to brush harder.
What did that mean?
When my family moved to another city,
my new dentist told me totally different
things about brushing my teeth.

My Favorite Paleo Recipes:
Thai Shrimp and Coconut Soup

evolution rI enjoy the flavor of coconut – not to mention shrimp. Thai inspired coconut soup hits the spot for me especially in the winter months. But for me, soup is good anytime – especially when the base is homemade bone broth.
 
For coconut soup, I like it to have a thicker consistency rather than a thin consistency. One way to accomplish this is to use only the cream in the coconut milk as I describe below. Also, you could continue to boil the liquid before adding the raw shrimp to reduce the liquid and thicken the soup further. I substitute the typical ingredient of fish sauce with a homemade concoction of mashed anchovies in coconut aminos.
 
Ingredients:
 
1 pound wild caught shrimp
Coconut cream from 1 can (15.5 ounces) full-fat coconut milk
1 Tablespoon raw coconut aminos
1 2-oz can of anchovy fillets (drain oil)
2 cups bone broth
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
1 cup sliced shitake mushrooms
2 Tablespoons lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Cilantro for garnish (optional)
 
Preparation:
 

  • Prepare the shrimp by peeling and deveining if not already done prior to purchase; dry shrimp with paper towel.
  • Place can of coconut milk in freezer for 5 minutes for cream to solidify and separate from the rest of the liquid; open can and remove cream to use for soup and discard remaining liquid.
  • Chop up anchovies and mix into coconut aminos in separate small mixing bowl.
  • In a pot over medium heat, combine anchovies mixed with aminos, coconut cream, bone broth, ginger, mushrooms, lime juice.
  • Bring to a boil (let boil for several minutes to reduce liquid if desired).
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add shrimp, and cook until tender which will only be additional 1-2 minutes (do not overcook shrimp).
  • Top with fresh chopped cilantro for garnish.
