I used to hear the word ‘cleanse’ as if it was a 4 letter word. It taunted me, teasing me to consider trying it, knowing the whole time I would have to make some serious compromises from my normal routine.
Could I stick to it? How could I manage juicing and raw foods while at [...]
Think you don’t like or need Coconut Water? Perhaps you think it’s just another latest craze? Nick Garcia, Holistic Nutritionist, shares his thoughts on why it’s a must-have for everyone (and sheds light on why Hawaiians are never thirsty
The Many Benefits of Coconut Water
Most people think I’m crazy when I recommend coconut [...]
Love Chocolate? Good – it’s actually good for you! Chocolate has more antioxidants than blueberries, green tea and red wine, and nearly eight times the antioxidants found in strawberries. Cacao has more antioxidant flavonoids than any food tested so far, including blueberries, red wine, and black and green teas. In fact, it has up to [...]
Every once in a while I fine tune a recipe to the point that both guys in the house admit they like it. Neither one of them is very good at sugar-coating their thoughts on my dishes, so when I do get something right, I’m always excited to hear them tell me they like it. [...]
This week I’ve been craving something sweet. Some days I’m stronger than the cravings, some days they’re gone, and some days my mouth waters thinking about a hunk of dark, semi sweet chocolate.
Most of my cravings are gone thanks to a grain and sugar-free diet, but occasionally my mind wins and I find myself staring at [...]
Green, lean and packed with energy!
This is one of my favorite ways to start the day – keeps my mind clear and gives me great motivation and energy!
I have a Jack Lalane juicer, but I’ve never quite mastered the whole juicing thing. It’s messy, time consuming and typically not [...]
Vegan Cashew Squash – a nutritional powerhouse, clean start to the day!
A little while back I posted a recipe that I make for breakfast which includes sautéed butternut squash, spinach and bacon. Since I avoid eggs to follow the Auto-Immune Protocol diet, and can’t eat grains, my breakfasts are typically leftover dinners or a [...]
Breakfast for dinner was always one of my favorite things as a kid.
I loved it when my mom would make scrambled eggs, french toast and bacon for dinner. I’m not sure why it has such a strong appeal, but our son is just as excited about the whole ‘breakfast for dinner’ thing today as [...]
When you’re avoiding grains, it’s common to find yourself in a side dish-rutt (I know this from experience!) Ours tend to be spinach, asparagus and green beans. And while the hubs makes an amazing simmered green beans dish I’ll share with you soon, even they can seem dull at times. So to shake things up [...]
I was excited to see the Today Show sharing some healthy, allergy-free friendly foods on the Today Show. Chloe, of Chloe’s Kitchen is a Vegan chef who shares some Vegan, Dairy-free and Gluten-free options. From creamy Penne ala Vodka, creamed with a homemade cashew cream, to Roasted Veggies and a Vegan Chocolate [...]
Like many of us are now, I’m craving comfort foods. Perhaps its the colder weather, perhaps its the Shady Hook tragedy, but this is a time when I’m craving comfort. And for my family, comfort = a warm bowl of fresh, homemade soup.
One of my fave soups is a carrot, ginger, cashew blend that’s [...]
Recently, while browsing the vendors at the weekend farmers market in downtown Austin, I stumbled on a booth run by a super cute lady spewing the health benefits of hemp. She was excitedly telling someone who had stopped to try her samples how hemp changed her life; she went form a high-powered, high stress career [...]
Eggs – I used to love them scrambled, hard boiled, over easy, and just about any other way you could make ‘em. Today, I have to avoid them, along with grains, dairy, gluten and several other more obscure foods, so I find myself testing various egg replacers while baking and cooking.
There are tons of reasons that [...]
Yesterday I posted a Gluten-free Key Lime Pie recipe, and no sooner did I get the post live, did my loving friends harass me for posting one that I can’t eat myself. Sometimes I feel like my restrictions are hard to follow, and I hesitate sharing recipes which only I can eat because they’re more involved than [...]
Living gluten, dairy and grain free means I sometimes miss foods of my past, especially around the holidays. It’s true that when you cut carbs and sugar from your diet, cravings fade, but what can sometimes stick around are the emotional cravings tied to foods that elicit a happy response. Meaning, the foods from our [...]
