Lemony Fennel Tuna Salad

Vibrant Method Test Kitchen “Original Recipe”.

This is one of my favorite lunch salads or a 'lazy weekend' snack for when I'm hungry but don't quite know what for. I usually buy a fennel bulb each week as a staple veggie, so this recipe was inspired by my lonely fennel who was begging to be included in the tuna salad. All other ingredients are always kept on hand making this refreshing salad a regular in my weekly rotation. Vitamin C-rich fennel is a crunchy and slightly sweet, adding a refreshing contribution to this dish. Lemon juice, mustard, and english cucumber add a much needed brightness and acidity to dress up a boring can of tuna fish. *Note - Be mindful of the canned tuna fish you purchase. Always read your labels and make sure your seafood is wild-caught, sustainable, and packed with only pure ingredients. For an added grain element, you can always mix in a serving of cooked Quinoa if you have leftovers on hand.

Lamb Sliders with Celery-Yogurt Sauce

Vibrant Method “Approved Recipe” sourced from Whole Foods.

Lamb is one of my favorite adrenal-support red meats. It's the first animal protein I reintroduced into my diet when realizing a vegetarian, then vegan, then back to vegetarian diet was depleting my system. I eat red meat at most twice a week, but feel this (and bison) are the best animal sources of Vitamins B12, B3, protein, and selenium. Make sure to purchase high-quality, organic, grass-fed lamb from New Zealand. These slider-style burgers offer an easy and fun introduction to the delicious taste of lamb. These sliders are topped with skyr, a tangy Icelandic dairy product with a thick consistency like strained yogurt, and a sprinkling of celery leaves. If you cant find skyr, then use organic, plain, full-fat greek yogurt. If you are intolerant to wheat or gluten, substitute the buns for Udi's gluten-free brand. Serve along side sweet potato fries and a super-greens salad.

Skillet Eggs + Smoked Salmon Hash

Vibrant Method Test Kitchen “Perfected Recipe” adapted from Whole Foods.

Serve this comforting meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner with a salad of baby greens on the side. If you've got leftover ham, you could certainly substitute, but you really must try it with the awesome salmon. Make sure to purchase nitrosamine-free smoked salmon from a reputable brand such as Changing Seas found at Whole Foods Market. Salmon is an excellent brain-health food rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.

Healing Bone Marrow Broth

Vibrant Method Test Kitchen “Original Recipe”.

Bone Marrow Broth is a common healing food that is now being recognized for its incredible health benefits ranging from overcoming food intolerances and allergies, improving joint health, reducing cellulite, creating a youthful skin tone, and boosting the immune system. Nutrition researchers Sally Fallon and Kaayla Daniel of the Weston A. Price Foundation explain that bone broths contain minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others. They contain chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, the compounds sold as pricey supplements to reduce inflammation, arthritis, and joint pain. Broth can be consumed plain with a little salt, ground pepper and crushed garlic, or used to braised and roast meats, as a base stock for soups and stews, and when braising vegetable. Add a small amount to your pet's food for added nutrient benefits.

Red Lentils with Cauliflower + Chicken Sausage

Easy and filling, this one-pot meal pairs flavorful chicken or turkey sausage with creamy red lentils and tender cauliflower. Perfectly filling for the fall, serve with naan bread for easy scooping. Make sure to soak the dried lentils up to 6 hours prior to cooking to remove hard-to-digest elements.

Chicken Sausage + Portobella Ragu over Creamy Polenta

One of my favorite ultimate comfort-dishes! Polenta serves as a gluten-free alternative grain topped with savory combination of chicken sausage, earthy baby bellas, and a bright tomato zing. Perfect for a weeknight dinner and sure to impress your guests at dinner parties. You can choose vegetarian sausage to make this vegetarian-friendly. I usually add a tablespoon of brain-healthy butter in the final polenta stir, because organic butter is a Vibrant Method approved brain food when used in moderation.
