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

Pumpkin Almond Butter Dip and Pumpkin Week on Facebook

Calling all pumpkin lovers.... drop that pumpkin spice latte (for real, do you know what's in that cup?!) and listen up. Do you want a real pumpkin fix? You see, there's a big difference between "pumpkin-flavored" and the real deal. So this week I'm sharing my all time favorite pumpkin recipes and treats made with real… Continue reading Pumpkin Almond Butter Dip and Pumpkin Week on Facebook

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

Smooth Summer Squash Soup

Call me crazy, but sometimes even in the middle of summer a bowl of soup can be quite nice. I had the most amazing summer squash soup on our California road trip (when it's 60 degrees in the evening hot soup doesn't sound as crazy too). Anyway, I loved it so much I decided to try to recreate… Continue reading Smooth Summer Squash Soup

Salmon with Lemon, Dijon and Dill

Salmon is one of my favorite go-to weeknight mains - it doesn't take long to marinate, it cooks quickly and as a bonus I can save a dose of my Omega-3 supplements... The main reason I cook it during the week though is it's not something I usually order out. I'm going to try to… Continue reading Salmon with Lemon, Dijon and Dill

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

Almond Butter Cups

There's something about rainy days that makes me want to hide in my house and play in the kitchen. Anyone else? A few weeks ago we got a real soaker on a Sunday and inspiration struck I saw these on Pinterest. I'd been wanting to make homemade Reese's (with a few tweaks) for awhile and here was my… Continue reading Almond Butter Cups

Turkey Tacos

  As much as I love to cook, this time of year I just want to fix something quickly so we can get on to more fun things... like going for a walk, relaxing on the patio or planning our California road trip we have on the calendar in June. Summer (especially these early few weeks before… Continue reading Turkey Tacos

Red, White & Blueberry Salad

Happy Fouth of July, everyone! I just couldn't let the holiday go by without contributing something red, white, blue and edible. Now, I realize there's just no topping last year's American flag tart (gluten-free and dairy-free), so I didn't even try with the desserts. I decided to go in a completely different direction instead... salad. Before I go any… Continue reading Red, White & Blueberry Salad
