Homemade Cashew Milk (You Won’t Believe How Easy This One Is.)

This blew my mind the first time I made this homemade cashew milk. You see, I'd had in my head that making your own nut milk was this inconvenient and involved process. I've bought the cheese cloths, nut milk bags and in the cabinet they have sat. Back in the day, pre-kids, pre a lot… Continue reading Homemade Cashew Milk (You Won’t Believe How Easy This One Is.)

Dairy-Free, No-Mayo Coleslaw Salad

With Potluck in the Park coming up this Sunday (you're coming right?!) and it being the middle of football season, I thought I'd share with you this coleslaw salad recipe which has become my go-to for BBQs right now. I've made this coleslaw salad a few times lately to go with brisket and the tangy, crunchy combo… Continue reading Dairy-Free, No-Mayo Coleslaw Salad

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

Watermelon Gazpacho

You know what the best part about this watermelon gazpacho is? The only thing you have to turn on is the blender. No heat required. Which is becoming my new requirement for summer cooking. If it requires a heat source other than a grill or a slow cooker, it's gonna have to wait till October.… Continue reading Watermelon Gazpacho

https://vimeo.com/321575210 Originally I planned to make this dairy-free butternut squash soup part of The 7-Day RESET meal plan but if you've ever tried to cut up a butternut squash, you know it can be a pain in the you know what. I didn't want to do that to you. So for the RESET I went… Continue reading Dairy-Free Butternut Squash Soup

Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie Cake

This peanut butter chocolate brownie cake I made last week was just way too good not to share. I found the recipe, thanks to my aunt, who recently introduced me to Sweet Laurel, a whole-foods bakery near where she lives in Los Angeles. If you haven't heard of them yet, you gotta check em out… Continue reading Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie Cake

Healthy Truffles

If there really were such a thing as a healthy truffle recipe, this would be it. I say that because I realize calling this a healthy truffle recipe to begin with is a bit of a stretch. Kind of like calling a cauliflower steak "steak"... no one's buying it. Where's the meat?!?!? So let's for… Continue reading Healthy Truffles

Chocolate-Dipped Easy Coconut Macaroons

I did something this weekend that I haven't done in years. I baked with white sugar. Gasp! I know. I debated if I should even post this recipe here because it will literally be THE only one that calls for it. Blasphemy! Buuuuuut, I felt like I had to share these easy coconut macaroons... because… Continue reading Chocolate-Dipped Easy Coconut Macaroons
