Tasty Tuesday

Biosyntrx is committed to doing everything we can to encourage appreciation for, and consumption of, nutrient-dense foods, as well as making healthy lifestyle choices that help lower the risk of mostly preventable degenerative diseases, and the public and private financial burden associated with these diseases.  

Vegan Lavender Latte

Tuesday, October 09, 2018

As the first autumn 2018 snow on Pikes Peak started to fall, with temperatures predicted to dip below freezing tonight, a cozy vegan lavender almond milk latte captured the Monday afternoon attention of Biosyntrx employees. We chose lavender, since the research office gardens still have both dried and blooming lavender that will be done for the season when the first snow falls in town, if the dried and new autumn blooms are not cut and moved inside.

Autumn Chili Verde

Tuesday, October 02, 2018

We are lucky here in Colorado Springs because just before the snow starts to fall on Pikes Peak, most of our garden stores celebrate the incoming autumn season by roasting large amounts of both red and green chilies as a customer appreciation gesture. They make them available in quart or gallon Ziploc bags for immediate or freezer use.

Food Waste

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Given that we are battling a very real food waste problem in our country today, we decided to discuss this issue instead of providing a nutrient-dense recipe.A United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)-funded study revealed earlier this year that American consumers waste almost one pound of food per day, accounting for 225 to 290 pounds per person per year, or almost a third of all food produced.

Quinoa Chicken Casserole

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

This tried and true, nutrient-dense Mexican casserole from Well Plated is weeknight mid-September perfect. It includes Greek yogurt, ?cheese, and a mix of fresh ingredients ?such as bell peppers and onions, and canned pantry staples such as black beans and fire-roasted tomatoes, to create a healthy dinner ?that's reasonably easy to prepare for busy families, single folks, or for empty-nesters who love leftovers, since it is almost as good on day two and three as it is on day one.

Early Autumn Green Smoothie Detox

Tuesday, September 04, 2018

Drinking this cucumber / celery / spinach green smoothie twice a day for a few days is a great way to detox after Labor Day, which seems to signal, (along with fresh snow on the summit of Pikes Peak that another year end is coming and we need to be ready.

John McCain's Ribs

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

Nothing makes me happier than grilling for family and friends. I have lots of energy, it keeps me moving.  ~John McCainWith the Labor Day holiday coming up, it seems fitting for our Tasty Tuesday recipe to feature Senator John McCain's recipe for grilled ribs. It's reported that since he could not move his arms above his shoulders, he often said that he considered grilling his sport and made it a habit to entertain friends and elected officials from both sides of the aisle at his Arizona ranch as often as possible. 

Easy & Quick Chicken Larb

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

As we reach the last few weeks of summer 2018, we want to spend less time in the kitchen and more time having fun, including on weeknights. ​Today's recipe is a Biosyntrx test kitchen favorite from Bon Appetit, and we agree with their suggestion that anything you can stick in a leaf of lettuce and call it lunch or dinner is most likely bound to be nutrient dense, and all right with us.

Hot August Nights Sweet Corn

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

According to one of our most favorite NYT food writers, Martha Rose Shulman, August is the month to serve lots of fresh sweet creamy corn, and we certainly agree. Since the heat wave has finally broken in Colorado and a few other places around the country, we are including one of Martha's cold salad recipes and her recipe for hot creamed fresh corn, which tastes a bit like exquisite fresh polenta. 

Layers of Flavor Fruit Salad

Tuesday, July 31, 2018

When was the last time anyone waxed poetic about your or anyone else's fruit salad?  We are confident that today’s Tasty Tuesday recipe will change that. Any mixture of five or more brilliantly colored fruits will do. We used both red and yellow cherries, peaches, blueberries, bananas and strawberries.

Grilled Shrimp with Wilted Spinach and Fresh Peaches

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

The first 2018 Western Slope Peaches reached our Colorado Springs markets early this year, probably because it was unseasonably warm this spring, and the heat continued right into summer...until today.This recently discovered, nutrient-dense, Tasty Tuesday recipe has been hanging out in my New York Times box waiting for peach season. The ingredient amount are perfect for a generous main course dinner for two, or for a light starter for four or more.
