Chef/Owner - Michael Schulson
He lost 30 pounds by working out and mostly changing his diet - no caffeine, no white flour, no sugar! He suggests that people "substitute" ingredients for fats/butters and sugar. (like olive oil and lemon juice instead of butter .. and natural agave nector for sugar? cauliflower instead of potatoes) Here are three healthy recipes that YOU can do at home:

Roasted Salmon with Cauliflower and Pesto:
1 portion

8 oz. fresh salmon
1 cup cauliflower florets
TBSP pesto
3 TBSP olive oil
Salt, to taste
10 leaves arugula
1 diced tomato
Juice from one lemon

Heat 1 TBSP oil in pan. Sear salmon 3 minutes on each side. Saute cauliflower in separate pan with 1 TBSP oil. Add pesto and sauté until tender. Mix arugula with TBSP olive oil, half of the lemon juice and tomatoes.

Plate cauliflower first, then salmon on top. Use remainder of lemon juice and squeeze over the salmon. Place the tossed salad on top of the salmon.

Kale Salad:
1 portion

2 cups chopped, washed kale
2 TBSP feta cheese
2 TBSP roasted red peppers
1 radish, shaved or thinly sliced
1 TBSP sliced raw onion
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TSP agave
1 TSP Sherry vinegar

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Plate

Green Juice:
1 serving

4 Leaves kale
6 leaves parsley, with stems
1 stalk celery
1 cucumber
4 romaine leaves
1 green apple
The juice from ½ lemon

Blend until smooth.
