About The Harvest Kitchen

The Harvest Kitchen is a whole foods recipes blog.  Here you’ll find hundreds of delicious whole foods recipes that are easy to make whether your tribe is vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian or paleo.  Many of these recipes are plant based recipes that celebrate fresh vibrant organic produce like this Crunchy Detox Salad and Lemon Ginger Morning Detox Drink.  You’ll also find crowd-pleasing salad recipes like this Italian Chopped Salad and this Tuna Pasta Salad, as well as lots of plant based protein recipes and a lot of quinoa recipes.

In addition to providing whole foods recipes, I will also from time to time share practical tips (like how to freeze bananas and how to cook pinto beans from scratch), natural remedies, and information gathered from various sources on the Internet about nutrition and health benefits pertaining to certain foods (like detox diet and  benefits of eating onions).  I also share recipes that will help you stay hydrated and flush out toxins (like this fruit infused water,  immune boosting ginger tea and these turmeric shots).

I believe that nutrition matters and what we put in our bodies will either feed health or feed disease.  Cooking meals at home from scratch using fresh organic produce, plant protein, lean meats (such as chicken and fish) and other immune boosting foods, is one of the best ways we can take care of ourselves and our family.  At the end of the day, what really matters to me most is to provide you with healthy recipe options that will help you achieve your daily wellness goals.

About Deborah

I’m Deborah Duncan!  I’m a former corporate real estate paralegal turned full-time food blogger. I have one grown son (Kyle) and three dogs (2 Shetland Sheepdogs and 1 Maltese who was born blind).  I was born and raised in sunny Southern California. My mom was a big influence on my cooking style which is mostly a plant-based or Mediterranean diet. She always served big leafy green salads and vegetables with every meal and lots of fruit (especially cantaloupe and tomatoes) with breakfast.  She’s been my taste-tester and co-recipe developer for many of the recipes you’ll find on this site.

I’m so happy you’re here!  I hope you stay awhile and find some new recipes that you’ll love and will want to make time and time again.
