Hello and welcome to the IPOM recipe page! Here you will find all recipes categorized below according to category. All recipes featured are made using whole, real, & recognizable foods with limited requirements for kitchen gadgets & appliances, though there is surely a place for a high powered blender in any kitchen and it is worth every penny of investment, in my opinion.

The philosophy here is simple: cooking and eating well needn’t be overly expensive and time consuming (unless you want it to be), but it should be enjoyable & accessible. To many healthy meals!

  1. You have so many great recipes. Best of luck putting the book together! It’s sure to be a success.

  2. Hi Shira,
    I just ran across your blog, and your recipes look great. Good luck with the book.

  3. Hi Shira,
    I came across your blog recently and scanned through all of it :) LOVED the recipes and am all set to try a couple of ‘em including the brussel sprouts salad. Frankly a lot of your recipes have inspired me to try out greens that I never did (for whatever silly reasons!). Thanks! Looking forward to many more and the book :)

  4. Hey, just wanted to let you know your Sweet Summer Smoothie link isn’t pulling up the smoothie post (cherry almond). I was trying to just e-mail you (didn’t want to leave comment) but couldn’t find a contact e-mail.
