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


Healthy Snacks Delivered to Your Door Step… Sign Me Up Please…

I used to loooooooove Fruit Roll-ups when I was a kid. When snack time rolled around at school, I'd whip out my tube of strawberry flattened fruit, unroll that puppy and then roll it right back up around my little finger to make one, long, fruity finger. Classy, I know. Hey, I was in first grade... and… Continue reading Healthy Snacks Delivered to Your Door Step… Sign Me Up Please…

Broccoli Crunch Salad

Years ago I remember having the most incredible broccoli salad. I couldn't tell you where I was (which is bugging me), but I can still taste it. This salad (remember, I use the term loosely) ingeniously combined broccoli, red onion, raisins and bacon dressed in creamy deliciousness. I'm sure mayonnaise was involved, which I publicly… Continue reading Broccoli Crunch Salad


For the Love of Mac & Cheese

Last night my roommates and I hosted a macaroni and cheese cook-off. The only thing healthy about this was the green beans we made as a side/palate cleanser. Actually, I take that back. There's nothing wrong with a little pasta, cheese and milk when it agrees with you. These dishes were made with real, wholesome… Continue reading For the Love of Mac & Cheese
