Updated: Sep 7, 2020

In conjunction with my article and Heather’s, I have included three recipes that support men’s health! These recipes include ingredients such as wild-caught salmon (Omega-3s), roasted tomatoes (lycopene), and pumpkin seeds and pine nuts (zinc). Enjoy!

Fresh citrus kale salad:

This salad is tangy, nutty, and perfect for summer!

One large head of organic curly kale (about 8 heaping cups chopped)

Two tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

Juice of two lemons

1 tbsp organic, raw honey

¼ tsp Himalayan salt

¼ tsp garlic salt

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

2 tbsp toasted pinenuts

2 tbsp organic pumpkin seeds (raw)

4 tbsp organic, pastured parmesan cheese (grated)

Finely chop both heads of kale and refrigerate until ready to serve

Mix EVOO, juiced lemons, and honey in a separate bowl*

*If honey is solidified, heat very slightly before combining

Toss kale with dry seasonings (salt, garlic, red pepper)

Pour wet ingredients over kale and mix thoroughly

Grate parmesan over kale and toss to combine

Garnish with pinenuts and pumpkin seeds

Serve immediately

Savory roasted tomatoes:

One of our staple household recipes comes from my mom! The recipe is not her own, but it’s been around so long, we aren’t sure where it originated! Needless to say, this recipe is a must.

2 pints of organic cherry or grape tomatoes

Juice of 4 limes

4 tsp of toasted sesame oil

4 cloves of garlic, crushed

4 tbsp of balsamic vinegar

2 tsp of salt

Black pepper (to taste)

Preheat oven to 225 degrees

Line roasting pan with parchment paper

Cut at least two deep slits into tomatoes (important step!) and put on roasting pan

In a bowl, mix lime juice, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and salt

Pour mix over tomatoes, and toss well. Season with pepper to taste

Bake tomatoes at 225 degrees for one hour

After an hour, turn the oven off and let tomatoes sit in warm oven for an additional hour

Remove from oven, tomatoes should be tender and some of the sauce reduced


Baked Salmon:

When it comes to fish, I keep it simple! Let the flavors stand for themselves, and don’t overcomplicate it.

2 wild-caught salmon filets

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp avocado oil

Himalayan salt and black pepper

Heat oven to 400 degrees

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Season skin side with Himalayan salt and black pepper

Flip over and drizzle each fillet with avocado oil, season with salt and pepper

Bake for 10 minutes

Remove from oven, squeeze fresh lemon over fillets, serve!
