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. You too? This is my philosophy: we add in to crowd out. I came to it from my own experience. In my own health journey, at… Continue reading Want to Eat Anti-Inflammatory? Here’s Exactly What To Do

And potato pizza bites were born. Think like those Bagel Bites we used to eat when we were kids... in whole-food, plant-based… Continue reading Potato Pizza Bites – Gluten-Free Pizza

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.

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
