Eggless egg salad stuffed avocado

This egg-free egg salad is something incredible. And that is because of the special dark Kala Namak salt. This salt is also called “Indian Black Salt”. It is pure and unrefined black salt with a unique, sulfuric taste that tastes like boiled eggs. I usually make this egg salad with chickpeas but sometimes with tofu, […]

Broccoli , Coconut & Lime Soup

I make broccoli soup incredibly often. In several ways. This is one of my favorite recipes. Easy to make, super satiating, full of fibers and all incredibly healthy properties of the so-called “cruciferous” foods (cauliflower, broccoli, kale, green cabbage, red cabbage, Brussels sprouts) – especially for wheelchair users. Onion and garlic are immune boosting ingredients. […]

If you’re on a plant based diet and do not eat meat and dairy, like more and more people do, people often talk directly about the 3 alleged nutrient deficiencies: calcium, B12 and iron. But did you know that the vast majority of meat and dairy eaters do not have just just 2 or 3 […]

Quick gluten-free buckwheat wrap

Buckwheat belongs to the list of recommended Sit Smart Diet -Proteins (see The Sit Smart Diet, page 63). Like quinoa, buckwheat is a gluten-free “pseudo-grain”. It is actually not a grain but a seed. That’s why many people (especially wheelchair users) who are sensitive to grains can still enjoy buckwheat. Wheelchair users are often quite sensitive […]

Proton pump inhibitors and magnesium deficiency

Proton-pump inhibitors; many wheelchair users use them and many of us use them even for years. That’s unfortunately not without risk. The reason that they are prescribed is usually the lack of real knowledge about nutrition and lifestyle medicine (that is very new and unknown territory in the first place for the vast majority of […]

Do you need meat, eggs and dairy as a wheelchair user?

When you hear the word “protein” most people think: meat and dairy. Most of us have been conditioned to equate protein with animal-based food. But the myth that plant–based protein sources are high in carbs, can’t build muscle, and are of low quality are just fallacies that float around nutrition circles. Especially in circles of […]

SCI and accelerated ageing

People with SCI are faced with accelerated ageing (Top Spinal Cord Inj Rehabil. 2015). This is not ‘just one of the many common secondary health conditions in SCI , but in fact thé most important consequence of a wheelchair bound existence, which – I am pretty sure- you are never told about during your rehab. […]
