Pumpkin Fudge 3

4 Ingredient Pumpkin Fudge (Vegan, Paleo)

As far as I am concerned once August is over the pumpkin season can begin.  As much as I love summer fruits and am sad to see them go until next season, I look forward to all the produce that fall has to offer.  A foodie like me transitions from season to season based on what […]

Cauliflower Pizza Crust 4

Cauliflower Pizza Crust (Vegan, GF, Paleo)

Well I did it!  I finally made my very own cauliflower pizza crust.  For some reason I had been putting off trying it for myself for a long time but I finally decided that it was time.  Any recipe that incorporates more vegetables into my life is right up my alley.  Only until recently has cauliflower become […]

Cococnut Yogurt

DIY Coconut Yogurt 4 Ways

With more and more people looking to avoid dairy alternative products like coconut yogurt are popping up on store shelves.  I have seen brands that are cleaner than others but usually these products contain a long list of questionable ingredients including added sugar.  But what if I told you that you can make your own […]

Superfood Sundae: Acai Magic Shell

Acai bowls are all of the rage right now and for good reason.  Acai berries are the star of these bowls and have been known for centuries in the Amazon as a source of energy and health.  They are a close relative of blueberries and cranberries but contain even more antioxidants.  You know, antioxidants, those […]

No Churn Peach Cobbler Ice Cream

  I have been desperately trying to find more and more ways to incorporate the abundance of delicious summer fruit while it is still around.  When food is in season that is when it is as its absolute best!  Summer peaches are no exception.  They are sweet, juicy, and bursting with flavor.  The bonus is that […]

Mexican Polenta

  It is no secret that Mexican food is at the top of my list of favorites.  Any cuisine that used that much avocado is alright in my book.  Why can’t we put a Mexican spin on everything?  I will take any excuse to add pico de gallo and avocado to just about anything.  Even […]

Tahini cardamom ice cream

No Churn Tahini Cardamom Ice Cream

Ice cream used to be one of my major weaknesses.  If you would have asked me what my favorite food was a few years ago I probably would have said it was ice cream.  As you start to live a more and more healthful lifestyle it gets easier to resist some of the more not […]

Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette

Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette

Summer produce is in full swing which means that it is a great time of year for tomatoes.  Tomatoes are a great source of antioxidants, including lycopene. Researchers have recently found an important connection between lycopene and bone health.  Lycopene acts to decrease oxidative stress and osteoporosis risk by decreasing bone resorption.  It has also been […]

Date Bars 5

Nature’s Energy Bar: Date Bars with Strawberries, Golden Berries and Cashews

Dates are natures perfect sweetener.  I always try to use dates first and foremost as a sweetener before anything else.  It is about as whole food as you can get.  Zero processing has to be done to this all natural dried fruit.  They come off of the trees looking that way (all dried and everything) […]

Tahini Spiced Cauliflower 3

Boring Vegetable No More: Tahini Spiced Cauliflower

Cauliflower has quickly become one of my favorite vegetables.  It is not only nutritious but it is so versatile.  Make cauliflower rice, use it to make a pizza crust, eat it raw in a salad, or (my favorite) roasted to perfection.  Roasting cauliflower in coconut oil with a little salt and pepper is often enough […]

Get Out of the Salad Rut + 24 Salad Ideas to Inspire You

When it comes to eating salad people ask me all of the time, how can you eat salad everyday?  My answer is always the same.  I don’t eat the exact same salad everyday.  I am constantly switching up the ingredients, the type of lettuce, and making new homemade dressings to keep things interesting.  Plus the […]
