It was early on in my healing journey when I dipped my toe into the world of gluten-free muffin making. And let me tell you, I had some total disasters. Bitter buckwheat hockey pucks. Grainy rice-based mounds that crumbled to the touch. Oh, and let’s not forget the vegan flaxseed cornmeal muffins that even my […]

Spicy Detox Salad (Daily Bites)

Okay. I seriously try not to talk too much about the weather on my blog (especially when it comes to complaining about winter), but I’m breaking the rules today. In my several decades of life on this planet, I’ve never experienced a cold snap quite like the one we’re having right now. By the time […]

Roasted Squash Salad with Pomegranate & Hemp Seeds

Roasted Squash Salad with Pomegranate & Hemp Seeds

I’ve been having way too much fun with pomegranates lately. They are such a seasonal delicacy. I wait all year to enjoy them only in the month of December when I’m making festive holiday recipes. Foods that are naturally bright and colorful with deep red or purple pigments are often the highest in antioxidants. Pomegranates […]

Brussels Sprouts with Shallots & Dates

When I originally made this recipe back in July, I hadn’t eaten Brussels sprouts in months so I was a bit skeptical if they would taste as good I originally remembered. But my memory served me right and they were every bit as a delicious as I recalled. Brussels sprouts? Delicious? Isn’t that sort of […]

Tahini & Smoked Paprika Kale Chips

Kale chips are kind of like sunsets. They’re amazing and beautiful and worthy of thousands of words…and when you get behind the camera to photograph them, no angle or type of lighting can do them justice! If you’re familiar with my blog, you know that I don’t have one single kale chip recipe posted here. […]

Strawberry, Blueberry & Radish Salsa

Are you ready for the 4th of July? I’m getting excited. It’s one of my favorite holidays because I love celebrating summer and our country’s many freedoms. I love the fireworks, the red-white-and-blue color theme, the festive flags and bunting, and—of course—the food! Whether you’re grilling out, staying in, going to a picnic, hosting a […]

Green Goddess Kale Slaw

Every meal is made better with the addition of kale in my view. If I allowed myself, you’d be getting a new kale recipe every week from me…but I try to throw in some variety so that I don’t kale you out. That said, you can expect to see a little more kale around here […]

"Cheesy" Cauliflower Popcorn

Oh yes I did. Popcorn made out of cauliflower? You had to see it coming. I mean, I’m the girl who puts kale in her brownies and spinach in her chocolate shakes. So really, cauliflower popcorn isn’t so far-fetched, is it? Join me at The Balanced Platter for the recipe! – A Few Favorites There […]

Light & Easy Avocado Dip

Light & Easy Avocado Dip

Earlier this week, I shared my recipe for Spicy Sesame Sweet Potato “Tots.” Every tot needs a sidekick, right? I call this avocado dip “light and easy” because it so easily complements just about any light summer dish that I’d be silly not to share the recipe with you. I’ve been making this exact dip […]
