I officially have a Dr’s prescription to nosh on more succulent crustaceans and umami mollusks. Yeah, that’s right. You see, I recently had my labs done which revealed I’m low in Zinc (but otherwise looking good thanks to my nutrient dense diet, huzzah!) To boost my levels of this important immune system mineral, I’ve started some supplementation, and I’ll also be enjoying more zinc-rich foods like shellfish. Doctor’s orders. Oh, I’m loving this.

(Click HERE to learn more about the nutritional radness of garlic chives.) However, if you can’t track some down, substitute regular onion chives or scallions.

A low carb, high fat, creamy iced latte with notes of nutty sweetness.

I love strong, black iced coffee. However, since adopting a ketogenic diet to help myself heal from the neurological aspects of Lyme Disease, I’ve been experimenting with different “bulletproof” coffee drinks.
