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

Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Pesto + The Veggie Spiralizer

It's the first week of fall and while everyone else is blogging about pumpkin flavored soup, smoothies, muffins, cookies.... I'm stuck in summer mode. As excited as I am to move on to fall, I'm still savoring the last few tastes of summer, like the basil, zucchini and tomato in this dish. The light, refreshing flavors feel and… Continue reading Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Pesto + The Veggie Spiralizer

4th of July Berry & Coconut Yogurt Parfait

I couldn’t let one of my favorite holidays go by without making something festive to contribute to the red, white and blue section of the blogosphere. This little treat is almost too simple to warrant a recipe or a post but really isn’t simple just what you need on a holiday that’s all about being outside… Continue reading 4th of July Berry & Coconut Yogurt Parfait

Seeduction Muffins

I used to be obsessed (I mean, obsessed) with this bread at Whole Foods called Seeduction bread. It’s the heartiest, nuttiest (or seediest) bread I think I’ve ever had and it’s so so tasty. If you’re not avoiding gluten or grains, I highly recommend it on pure taste alone. You know those breads that are… Continue reading Seeduction Muffins

The Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie

Last week I mentioned how I use food as medicine to help relieve pain and heal. When you approach food from this perspective, food is more than just calories or something to silence a growling tummy. It is information that tells our cells what to do and how to react. Imagine your body is like a computer and everything… Continue reading The Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie

Creamy Cauliflower and Leek Soup

I know this isn't your typical Hello, Spring! recipe for the first week of the new season... but spring sure is taking it's sweet time to get here.... at least in Texas that is. The weather here lately has been down right erratic. 80 degrees one day. 30 degrees the next. And rainy. My god, so much rain. It… Continue reading Creamy Cauliflower and Leek Soup

Oh-Mega Apple Muffins

We finally got the rest of our kitchen unpacked this weekend (woo hoo!). And I realized something; it's amazing what you find you don't need after your things have been in boxes for three weeks. In that short time I managed to get bitten by the minimalist bug. Yes, me the same person who spent… Continue reading Oh-Mega Apple Muffins

The Trick to Making a Delicious Kale Salad

How do you really feel about kale? If you're making a bitter face after reading that sentence, I understand. The No. 1 complaint I hear about kale is that it's soooo bitter. And you're right. Eaten completely raw the stuff is absolutely disgusting. There, I said it. But when kale is properly prepared, that bitterness mellows… Continue reading The Trick to Making a Delicious Kale Salad

Pumpkin Granola (Grain-free)

Are you tired of pumpkin yet? Ya, me neither. You know what I am tired of though... my Pinterest feed showing me delicious looking pumpkin treats that I can't eat. I swear if I see that two ingredient pumpkin brownie recipe one more time... So, instead of taking my frustration out on the iPad, I… Continue reading Pumpkin Granola (Grain-free)
