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

Natures 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 […]

Tiger Nuts

What are Tigernuts? + Tigernut Flour Crust (vegan, gluten free, paleo)

What the heck are tigernuts?  I had never heard of them myself until recently.  I had seen a handful of posts by fellow bloggers regarding tigernuts and I was immediately intrigued.  I do love learning about the latest and greatest in healthy foods after all.  So when Organic Gemini contacted me about testing out some […]

Beet Sliders: Two Ways

As a dietitian I believe that one diet does not fit all.  Not everyone’s body can tolerate all of the same foods.  One person may tolerate grains well but then someone else may not.  One person may tolerate dairy well but then someone else may not.  You get the idea!  The one thing that I do […]


Clean Version Star Crunch (Only 6 Ingredients)

Oh Little Debbie how I remember you.  It has been sooo long since I unwrapped one of your delicious treats.  I am sorry but you just didn’t fit into my real food lifestyle.  For a long time I have been wanting to recreate some of my favorite treats as a kid but make them cleaner and a little bit […]


Strawberry Lemonade Green Smoothie (Lower Sugar Option)

  Why is everyone so afraid of the sugar content of fruit?  Fruit is healthy for us right?  Fruits is an amazing source of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.  Yes this is all very true.  Unfortunately our grocery stores are full of foods with added refined sugars.  Things like barbeque sauce, salad dress, cereal, ketchup, snack bars, […]

Do You Need a Skin Cleanse? with S.W. Basics

Eating as clean as you possibly can is so important to health and wellness.  Food has a much bigger impact on our bodies then many people give it credit for these days.  I am always happy to see more people coming to this realization and taking a stand against processed junk food.  Not only has […]

Cauliflower Risotto 2

Cauliflower “Mock” Risotto with Spring Vegetables

I have never had anything against cauliflower but for some reason (until recently) it was not a vegetable that I bought or cooked with much.  I really have no idea why exactly but I guess that I just didn’t know what to do with it.  Maybe you have the same problem?  Since figuring out how to make […]
