I’ve not been asked very often to bake cakes, mostly because I think I am really a terrible baker, which essentially just comes down to me being terrible at following precise measurements. I like to explore, create and bend the rules. Baking doesn’t allow for this. However, there are a few things I have been requested to bake, oatmeal raisin cookies, Christmas cake, and cranberry orange scones. I’ve now recreated two of these to be grain-free, I haven’t yet nailed the third. But these were… Read More
Sometimes I often forget how much I miss certain flavors and styles of eating until I have them. That’s where the idea for these sesame ginger meatballs came from. It’s similar to the concept of “out of sight, out of mind” for me when it comes to certain foods. It’s like the instantly I pick up chopsticks to eat sushi I am reminded how much I love using chopsticks to eat, but outside of that situation I rarely think about using… Read More
When I first thought about recreating a pasta salad I considered two things. One being that it had to have a Mediterranean flavor, and two was that it must have black olives. I have a deep love for olives! Follow & Share!
This recipe for lemon herb stuffed omelette is one I shared while taking over the Whole30recipes Instagram page! It’s light and fresh, perfect for summer! It’s also incredible simple but has a touch of elegance and decadence which qualifies it to be served for brunch! Follow & Share!
In the springtime I crave fresh, simple and beautiful food. It’s all about colors, textures and the experience of eating the food, just as much as it is about the food’s flavor. This perfect Paleo spring brunch is ideal for the coming months of fresh simple produce and warmer sunny days. I love these savory “grits” because they are so light comparatively to their corn inspiration. I grew up eating grits coming from a southern family and to me they are the epitome… Read More
This green goddess sauce gets it’s name because it is fantastic on everything. You can’t go wrong with adding this sauce to any protein, soups, even grain-free breads or thinning into a dressing on everything!! Not only is it absolutely to die for, but it is a powerhouse of pungent and medicinal herbs that help the body detox and eliminate. The combination of garlic, parsley and cilantro enhances all of these together to help aid the body in it’s natural process of detoxing the body,… Read More
There nothing quite like chocolate and raspberries when it comes to a dessert. Am I right? I’ve gotten to the point where sweets really aren’t a huge part of my life, but having something that satisfies that craving once and a while is so nice! That’s why I love this four ingredient fudge. I’ve been making this “fudge” forever now but never posted it. It’s one of those “it’s so simple you don’t need a recipe” kind of recipes. But then again that’s pretty much… Read More
When spring and summer come all I can think about are getting my hands on all the fresh produce and vegetables possible. It’s a time when I leisurely walk the farmer’s markets. I am constantly inspired by fresh local produce, and right now there is so much to be excited about. Between fresh berries, figs, collard, dandelion greens, zucchini, and asparagus there is so much right now to make healthy eating super convenient. Seeing all of the green vegetables as I tote them home in… Read More
Prior to the days where I no longer eat grains and legumes I loved hummus! Seriously I’d dip whatever I could into it, pretzels, carrots, cucumbers, spread it on tortillas the list goes on. When I think about how I used to eat, it was never a poor diet, the main difference between what I felt was healthy then, and what I know is healthy now is a matter of nutrients. And even though my diet lifestyle was seemingly “healthy” is was nutritionally void. I… Read More
It’s the newest trend in the foodie culture to sit down to a big bowl of grains filled with all kinds of warm yummy toppings like eggs, greens, vegetables and other delicious edibles. So in doing what I feel is a public service to what I’d call the “non-grain community” at large is create a “grainless” bowl that resembles it’s original inspiration, yet tastier, more nutrient dense, and vegetable focused. These bowls are the perfect dish to transition from winter to spring as they’re… Read More
