Lemon Garlic Chicken with Cauliflower Mash

Easy and Delicious: Lemon Garlic Chicken over Cauliflower Mash

This is a terrific recipe for a great lemon chicken dish sent to us by Al Klapperich. Use free range chicken if available, and if you choose to add the dairy products, make sure to choose organic, again, if available. I am a big fan of cauliflower, not only because it is a brassica vegetable and therefore quite helpful in terms of detoxification, but because it is also a good source of prebiotic fiber that helps nurture your gut bacteria!


A New Flavor for a Healthful Breakfast

I’ve received a number of questions lately on how to bring some new flavors to breakfast. While keeping in mind that a brain healthy diet is rich in a number of foods, I certainly have a few favorite breakfasts that are my regular go-tos on days that I decide to eat breakfast

One I’d like to share with you today is this delicious recipe for pumpkin breakfast pudding. It’s a great source of the nutrients you need to start the day, and tastes great without being full of sugar. So give this a shot tomorrow!

And in the comments, let me know what some of your favorite breakfasts are!

Grain Brain Thanksgiving Turkey

The Thanksgiving Table

We’re just one week away from that most food-centric of American holidays, Thanksgiving. Myself, I’m very much looking forward to carving a big turkey with my family and feasting on some brain-healthy sides, like broccoli and cranberries.

Next week, I’d like to feature some recipes that you can use to produce a Grain Brain-approved Thanksgiving dinner that nobody will forget. If you have something you want to share with our community, send it to me at recipes@DrPerlmutter.com, and you may see it features here on the site!


Calling all Gluten-Free Recipes!

Now that it has been two weeks since the launch of Grain Brain, my hope is that many of you have had a chance to thoroughly examine and digest the conclusions of the book, and are beginning to incorporate the lessons and suggestions into your daily lives. As you already know, a central part of doing so is changing your diet to be completely grain-free, as well as gluten-free. Certainly, there are plenty of resources available, both on the internet or in print, for gluten-free recipes. However, since we can’t eat grains on the Grain Brain diet, many of these resources fall short of the standards required for a Grain Brain-friendly meal. So, I need your help.

On this website, I’m trying to build a robust collection of recipes so that folks looking to go grain- and gluten-free have a valuable resource to turn to for meal ideas. Unfortunately, I can only come up with so many avocado or coconut oil-inspired dishes before I run out of ideas. That’s where you come in. If you’ve got a Grain Brain-friendly recipe idea, email it to me at recipes@DrPerlmutter.com. Include all the pertinent information (ingredients, instructions, serving), and a photo wouldn’t hurt either. If it sounds tasty enough, I just may feature it on the website!
