dairy-free mushroom soup

Dairy-Free Mushroom Soup

This dairy-free mushroom soup is like comfort in a bowl. It's exactly how you remember cream of mushroom soup tasting - thick, rich, hearty... but without the "cream." I may have mentioned before that I was a picky eater as a kid. Until college, my diet consisted mostly of carrots and turkey sandwiches on wheat… Continue reading Dairy-Free Mushroom Soup

Want to Eat Anti-Inflammatory? Here’s Exactly What To Do

Notice I said "eat anti-inflammatory" not "go on an anti-inflammatory diet" or "reduce inflammation."... Personally I'm tired of those words... diet. reduce. I've grown weary of all. the. rules.

Beef Tacos + Cilantro Cauliflower Rice

We eat a lot of tacos around here, especially these beef tacos. Right now I'm averaging most days where two meals a day are a taco, in some form or fashion. Some healthier than others, yes. Regardless, most days I'm drawn toward all things roll-able. When I asked you in this survey last week what… Continue reading Beef Tacos + Cilantro Cauliflower Rice

I mustache you a question. How do you feel about a green smoothie in the winter? Me, I can't take the cold. So lately I've been making a warm smoothie and while I have to admit it sounded a little weird at first, I gotta say I like the change.

Creamy Cauliflower Dip

One of the biggest lessons I've learned from changing my diet is when you close a door on one food, there's a window that opens. And it's a chance to experiment, be creative and discover something new. Four years ago I started on this journey of healing my body naturally and along the way have had to give up… Continue reading Creamy Cauliflower Dip

Smooth Summer Squash Soup

Call me crazy, but sometimes even in the middle of summer a bowl of soup can be quite nice. I had the most amazing summer squash soup on our California road trip (when it's 60 degrees in the evening hot soup doesn't sound as crazy too). Anyway, I loved it so much I decided to try to recreate… Continue reading Smooth Summer Squash Soup
