1      medium zucchini, diced
1⁄2    lb cremini mushrooms, diced

carrot, bell pepper, and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are soft and lightly browned,
about 10 minutes.
2) Add the tomatoes, crushing lightly between your fingers to give the chili a coarse texture. Add the chipotle,

Mediterranean Dinosaur Salad 
Makes 1 serving

Ingredients
2      cups kale (preferably lacinato, or “dinosaur,” kale), ribs removed and chopped
1⁄4    cup cherry tomatoes, halved
4      Kalamata olives, pitted, halved
1⁄4    cup artichoke hearts (canned in water, preferably)
1⁄4    cup cooked chickpeas 
1⁄8    red onion, diced 
2      tbsp walnuts 
1      tbsp cider vinaigrette
Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

1) Before making the salad, spend a few minutes massaging and squeezing the kale. It sounds funny,
but roughing up the leaves will help break down the tough fibers, making the kale more tender.
2) Combine the kale, tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, chickpeas, onion, and walnuts in a mixing bowl.
Toss with the vinaigrette and season with salt and black pepper to taste.

Keen-Whaaa? Salad

Ingredients:
Makes 4 servings
2 cups cooked quinoa
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 bunch asparagus, woody ends removed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup cooked green lentils
1/4 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1/4 cup store-bought pesto (Note: while there is some Parmesan in pesto, the amount in this recipe is
unlikely to cause gastrointestinal discomfort. If you run into issues, consider swapping for 1/4 cup
Zero Belly vinaigrette and a handful of chopped fresh basil instead!)
1 tablespoon Zero Belly Vinaigrette
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 450˚F.
Bring a pot of water to boil, season with salt, and cook the quinoa until just al dente, about 20 minutes.
Drain in a colander.
While the quinoa cooks, drizzle the asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper.
Place in the oven and cook until gently browned and softened, about 10–12 minutes, depending on the
thickness of the asparagus. Chop into bite-size pieces.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the quinoa with the lentils, asparagus, and sun dried tomatoes.
Mix together the pesto and Zero Belly vinaigrette, and then add it to the bowl of quinoa. Toss to combine.

Quinoa

Quinoa is a complete protein with a full amino acid profile. It’s light and fluffy in texture, but has
that whole-grain ability to fill you up, and the same gene-hacking powers as brown rice.

Ingredients:
1 cup quinoa
2 cups cold water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Directions:
Rinse quinoa under cold water for 30 seconds. Drain and transfer to a medium pot.
Add water and salt and bring to a boil.
Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
Set aside off the heat for five minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork.

Green Lentils

Lentils are a ZERO BELLY favorite. A half-cup serving delivers 3.4 grams of resistant starch,
a healthy carb that resists full digestion and boosts metabolism. Cooked lentils will keep refrigerated for about a week.
Quick tip: Any amount of lentils can be cooked in this manner. Just maintain a 2:1 ratio of water to lentils.

Ingredients:
1 cup dried green lentils
2 cups water
1 bay leaf, garlic clove, or other seasoning
1/4–3/4 teaspoon salt
Directions:
Rinse dried lentils in a colander and transfer to a saucepan.
Cover with the water and the bay leaf and any seasonings. Reserve the salt.
Bring the water to a rapid simmer over medium-high heat, and then reduce the heat to maintain a
very gentle simmer. Cook, uncovered, for 20–30 minutes.
Add water as needed to make sure the lentils are just barely covered. Lentils are cooked as soon as
they are tender and no longer crunch.
Strain the lentils and remove the bay leaf or garlic clove.
Return the lentils to the pan and stir in salt.
Zero Belly Vinaigrette

There’s developing research to suggest vinegar can aid weight loss by keeping our blood sugar steady.
One study among pre-diabetics found the addition of two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a
high-carb meal reduced the subsequent rise in blood sugar by 34%. Shake up this recipe in a mason jar
and you’ll have delicious, additive-free dressing for the week!

Ingredients:
Yield: 1 cup, about 16 servings
1/3 cup raw apple cider vinegar
2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Directions:
Combine ingredients in a mason jar and shake vigorously until emulsified.
Store in fridge and shake before serving.

The Ultimate Burger

Ingredients:
Makes 4 servings
1 pound ground 94% (or leaner) beef
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 Gluten-free hamburger buns
2 cups arugula
1/2 cup Caramelized Onions (see recipe below)
Ketchup and mustard (optional)
Directions:
Heat a grill or stove top grill pan until hot.
Combine the beef, salt, and pepper in a bowl and gently mix. Form into four patties.
Caution: overworking the meat or packing your patties too tightly can make tough burgers.
Cook the burgers for two to three minutes and flip. Cook on the other side for another two to three minutes
until nicely charred on the outside, but still medium-rare to medium within. (The center of the patty should
be firm but easily yielding—like a Nerf football.)
Meanwhile, sauté the sliced mushrooms in the olive oil until the mushrooms soften and release their liquid.
Divide the arugula among the buns and top with the burgers, onions, and mushrooms and one teaspoon each
ketchup and mustard (optional).

Secret Weapon: Caramelized Onions

Properly caramelized onions take time, but make up a big batch and have them on hand for smothering burgers,
covering sandwiches, and topping juicy hunks of grilled steak or fish. Cook at least three large red onions
(remember, they’ll shrink down as the water cooks out) in a large pot with 1/2 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
over a very low flame. Add a generous pinch of salt, which will help draw the moisture out.
Cover the pot, removing the lid every three or four minutes to stir the onions. Cook for at least 20 minutes,
up to 45 minutes, depending on how sweet you like your onions.

Strawberry Banana

Ingredients:
Makes 1 serving
I scoop vegetarian protein powder
1/3 cup frozen strawberries
1/4 frozen banana
1/2 tablespoon almond butter
1/2 cup unsweetened nondairy milk (almond, hazelnut, coconut, hemp, etc.)
Water to blend (optional)
Directions:
Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Zero Belly Cookies

Ripe banana acts both as the glue that holds these together as well as a major source of natural sweetness,
while ground almonds stand in as a fiber-and protein-rich substitute for refined flour. Peanut butter and dark
chocolate complete the package, adding healthy fat, antioxidants, and a double helping of deliciousness.
The end result—nutty, sweet, chocolaty—is like a fresh slice of banana bread, in crunchy, chewy cookie form.

Ingredients:
Makes 12 cookies
1 1/3 cups unsalted blanched almonds
2 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Place the almonds in a food processor and pulse until ground to a near flour-like consistency.
In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas into a paste. Add the brown sugar, peanut butter, baking soda,
salt, and ground almonds and stir until evenly combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
Form each cookie by dropping two tablespoons of the batter onto a cookie sheet, leaving at least
three inches between cookies. Bake for eight to ten minutes, until the edges are just brown.
