So, I’ve been cooking a decent amount lately and this is the organic dinner that I made for myself last night.

Quinoa topped with black sesame seeds and walnuts. In Chinese medicine, black sesame seeds are used to promote a healthy kidney and liver, and they are also high in calcium, iron, copper, magnesium and phosphorus.

Additionally, I like the way black sesame seeds taste. They are earthy and full-bodied.

On the side, you see greens and sauerkraut. I’m trying to incorporate more fermented foods, such as sauerkraut, into my diet since they provide beneficial bacteria and aid in digestion.

Sauerkraut is also high in Vitamin A and C, and has plenty of fiber.

The whole meal took less than 15 minutes to make and was well under $10.

    Hi Max,

    Thanks so much for posting this. I truly like everything on your plate, esp sauerkraut. Yes to fermented foods! Did you make the sauerkraut yourself?

    Yes – I can’t remember the name of the salad I always get at One Lucky Duck but it has an asian dressing and lots of cabbage, beets and sesame seeds… all shredded and beautiful. I recreated it at home a few times too 🙂 But if I lived in NYC – I could eat it everyday!

    I will email ya! Can’t wait to touch base on that…

      I can’t remember the name of it either. I usually get the S&M salad. One Lucky Duck is phenomenal!!

      Talk soon!

      Live well,
      Max

    Max – There are only 4 places that serve organic juice – 2 of them don’t serve past 6pm, then other one is too far away (15 mile drive) and the one place that has juice until 8pm – their juicer is 50% always out of order. Terrible – right? When I was coming up to NYC over the summer a bunch for work – I’d have my cab take me immediately to One Lucky Duck on 17th to load up before heading to my office! So amazing! Thinking of opening a juice bar in Uptown where I live – Would love to talk to you about it over the phone to get your opinion….I really want to spread the juice love to EVERYONE EVERYWHERE 🙂

      Hi Vani,

      4 places in Charlotte actually isn’t bad at all. That is much more than Boston, which has practically nothing.

      Yes, One Lucky Duck is a great place. I am not surprised in the least that you LOVED it. Amazing salads!!

      Send me an email (contact info is on the site) and we’ll set up a time to talk. I have seen all the business models around juice and have a clear sense of what not to do, what to expect.

      Live well,
      Max

    Yeah for cooking in Max! I want to incorporate more fermented foods in my diet too. I love how simple and easy good, holistic, nutrient dense food can be… We almost went out to eat tonight because I didn’t feel like putting anything together – my husband convinced me to stay in – we ended up making sprouted lentils which took less than 10 mins and roasted sweet potatoes… 15 mins… So much healthier than eating out and easier on the wallet 🙂 We both drank a huge glass of fresh kale & celery juice while we were cooking too… something that’s impossible to get at night time here in Charlotte.

      Hi Vani,

      Sounds like you have a very supportive, healthy-eating husband!!! To live with someone who shares your values (health, organics, juicing) makes all the difference in the world.

      Yes, not only is it great tasting but it is much less expensive. While we have plenty of organic restaurants here in NYC, oftentimes it is much easier to stay in.

      No organic juice bars in Charlotte????? Nothing????

      Live well,
      Max
