EAT THIS: Delicious Classics from the Genesis Recipe Archives

Posted on December 31, 2011 by


Our clients are, as a group, brave souls who courageously push the envelope on foods that are new to their diets.  They want Transformation and they are willing to risk the changing of the habit-based taste bud.  We both admire and encourage this behavior, as we reach for the frontiers of healthy eating, ourselves…

These are classic recipes that our clients reach for again and again.  Most of them are formulated by our clients  and grow in popularity on our forums.

Good food is a fun thing.  The recipes:

Chia Hot Porridge

A nice change-up for oatmeal.


5 TBS thick rolled oats, dry

.5 banana

.5 tsp ground cinnamon

1 oz light coconut milk

1 tsp raw honey

1 TBS chia seeds


Bring one cup of water to a boil; add all ingredients to water; continue stirring for about 5 minutes or until you get nice texture. Serve and pour over with coconut milk.

Vege Egg Scramble

This is an easy way to get protein and healthy veges to start your day.


3 eggs

.25 cup mushrooms, sliced

1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

.25 cup onions, chopped

.5 cup spinach


Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in saute pan. Add onion and mushrooms, saute 5min. Add egg and spinach and stir occasionally until egg is cooked and spinach wilted. Serves 1.

Orange Julius Smoothie

Easy and a yummy, light sensation for the taste buds.


1 banana

1 orange

1 scoop GT vanilla whey protein powder


Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  No water needed if using fresh fruit.

Sheri’s Basic Salad

This is a huge recipe – and the volume will depend on the size of the veggies, but it will make about 20 cups, or 5 quarts.


2 cups green cabbage, chopped

2 cups red cabbage, chopped

1 cup carrots, chopped

1 cup celery, chopped

1 cucumber, chopped

3 oz red leaf lettuce, chopped

8 cups romaine lettuce, chopped

6 oz red onion, chopped

1 zucchini, chopped


Rinse all produce. I like to chop the lettuce into about 1 1/2 inch pieces. Now, because this is so large, I layer rather than toss. I combine all the veggies but lettuce, then layer lettuce-veggies-lettuce etc until the bowl is full. Keep it in the fridge either covered in plastic or with a towel draped over the top of the bowl.

Carribean Chicken Stew

Exotic Caribbean flavors and lots of good antioxidants –


15.5 oz canned black beans, no salt

4 cloves garlic

3 limes

1 tsp ground nutmeg

1 cup onions, chopped

16 oz canned diced tomatoes, no salt


In a large pot, heat oil. Add onion, green pepper, garlic (minced); saute 3 minutes. Add spices, plus .5 tsp cayenne and a bay leaf; saute 3 minutes. add tomatoes, broth, COOKED chicken (torn into strips), cubed raw squash, and undrained canned beans. Simmer, covered, 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove bay leaf. Serve with squeezed lime juice.

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

This spicy dish is good over rice,  grated zucchini (as a pasta substitute!) or as is with salad.


.25 cup fresh basil

4 garlic cloves

2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp dried oregano

.125 tsp ground red pepper

1 lb raw shrimp

28 oz canned diced tomatoes, no salt
