Gluten-Free Cranberry Ginger Muffins

You may be surprised to hear that there is always a baked good offering on my countertop. From gluten-free brownies to banana bread and chocolate chip cookies, none are hard to find in my home. Having a treat around as an option actually makes me even less likely to devour it. It’s also a request […]

Turmeric Latkes

With Hannakuh came along those lovely Jewish food traditions my family celebrates. This year we kept it pretty basic, but there was one thing I couldn’t go without making and that would be those delicious potato latkes. The humble potato tastes great when fried (I think we can all agree on that!) and I discovered […]

Oatmeal Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Bites

If you’ve taken a brief look at my blog, my social media, or just about anything I share, you will see I’m not much of a breakfast eater. If I have my matcha latte or my bulletproof coffee, I’m pretty good until lunch time. Until now…I discovered these oatmeal apple cinnamon bites and they make […]

Studies have shown they can improve digestion, help protect against disease, and enhance […]

Veggie Potstickers

A common misconception of going plant-based is that you have to say buh-bye to all those craveable foods that you love.  You should know that I still eat many of the foods my clients might think are no longer a part of my life and I make them actually kind of good for me by […]

Coconut Battered Squash Rings

Who doesn’t love a classic fried onion ring?  I meant that crispy crust, savory bite of onion sweetened by the heat.  It’s a classic combination that is so crave-able!  I’m all for an onion ring on occasion, even better if they’re homemade and crisped in avocado or coconut oil.  But, this season, with squash reaching […]

Broccoli Arancini Balls

Broccoli and cauliflower are two of my favorite super foods and cleansing foods. They’re not only rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber, but they’re loaded with antioxidant and protective phyto-chemicals as well. They help clean out free radicals which can cause damage to your DNA and can lead to cancer. You simply can’t enough of […]

Flaxseed Wraps

These wraps will revolutionize your meal prep.  That’s something I don’t say lightly, but upon tasting, this gluten free alternative to bread and tortillas is now going to be used to wrap up everything I love.  Today’s recipe showcases the wraps with a schmear of Kite Hill Almond Cream Cheese and diced chicken and veggies, […]
