Firecracker Salmon Rice Paper Rolls

I literally did a happy dance the first time I bit into one of these Firecracker Salmon Rice Paper Rolls. I didn’t know it was even possible for a healthy dish to be so crispy and delicious. Imagine your favorite crunchy spring rolls from your go-to Asian spot and now imagine a nutrient-dense version that […]


Vegetable Moo Shu

If you are anything like me, when the Chinese food craving hits, there’s almost nothing you can do to distract yourself. The only solution is to … eat Chinese food! But I’m not a fan of the tummy troubles that typically accompany dinner at an Americanized Chinese food restaurant. That’s why I’ve been playing with […]


Mini Vegan Tostada Bowls

When I first started eating more plant-based, I was really nervous about missing certain foods. For example, I worked myself up thinking I would rarely be able to enjoy Mexican cuisine because of how much meat and dairy are often used. But over the years, I have found some INCREDIBLE dairy-free, nutrient-dense products like Forager’s […]


Asparagus & Peas Green Goddess Pasta Salad

Is it just me, or does anyone else get wicked cravings for pasta salad when the weather is hot? We’ve been experiencing a heatwave here in Los Angeles, and I’ve had pasta salad on the brain! Traditional pasta salad is riddled with saturated fat from mayonnaise and simple carbohydrates from the refined white pasta. That’s […]


Anchovy & Olives Tapenade

Some people avoid using anchovies in their cooking, but I encourage my clients to incorporate them from time to time. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which offer powerful benefits for your heart. They are also high in vitamin B and iron. Anchovies don’t have to be overwhelming. You can incorporate them subtly into […]


Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Drop Biscuits

Talk about a sweet treat without any of the downsides that typically accompany desserts! These Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Drop Biscuits are a dream for health nuts like me who can’t kick their sweet tooth. The biscuits are completely dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan. They boast the perfect amount of tart flavor, which can be attributed to […]


Creamy Roasted Sweet Potato Pasta

Sometimes when I meet with a new client, they assume I’m going to tell them they need to cut all of the “fun foods” out of their diet in order to be healthy. They’re often shocked to learn that I still regularly enjoy many foods that some health practitioners consider healthy. For example, I am […]

Green Gazpacho

It’s summertime, but that doesn’t mean I’m cutting back on my veggie soups! In fact, I’ve been eating more soup than ever as I try to strengthen my immunity as much as possible. But don’t worry, I’m not encouraging you to sip on hot broth in this heat. Instead, start exploring various cold soups! This […]


Edamame Gluten-Free Pesto Pasta

I have always been a huge fan of pesto. The herbaceous flavor enhances any dish, in my book. My two gripes with traditional pesto are that it lacks protein and is often made with dairy, which I find to be totally unnecessary. That’s why I developed this Edamame Gluten-Free Pesto Pasta recipe. Instead of just […]


Creamy Broccoli Soup

I’ve been trying to find ways to help reduce my food waste, and a great one is using food scraps that would usually be thrown away. Take broccoli stems, for example. They contain the most fiber out of any part of the vegetable, are high in antioxidants, and contain vitamins Em, and K, and calcium. […]
