Oils for Fresher Mouth

Did you know that digestion actually begins before you put one bite of food into your mouth? Chances are you’ve longingly gazed at a delicious meal (or beautiful fruit crisp!) a time or two and noticed an immediate increase in the saliva production in your mouth. After all, it’s where the description “mouthwatering” comes from. […]

Beets n' Sweets Kale Salad | DailyBitesBlog.com

Kale salad and books. Those are the topics of today’s discussion. And they happen to be two of my faves. Perhaps it’s the long days or lazier pace of summer weekends, but I’m all the way into reading lately. I currently have about half a dozen books scattered around the house that I pick up […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp with Oatmeal Walnut Topping | DailyBitesBlog.com

My dad is pretty much the best guy ever (which you probably already know from this post), and so to celebrate I made him Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp! My dad is cool without being the stuffy kind of cool. He’s smart, kind, humorous, and eager to learn—but it all comes off naturally and never seems forced. […]

Let’s Use Food As Medicine!

June 10th, 2014 at 5:05 am · Post a comment · 8 Comments

My body and mind are freshly flowing with inspiration and tons of great new information since I returned from California over the weekend from the Food As Medicine conference. It was a full few days of learning, but my spongy brain soaked it right up. Using food as medicine is something that I’ve devoted the […]

I’m off to California for a conference this week, but before I take to the skies I wanted to share with you my newest frozen treat recipe. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream hardly needs an introduction, except when you’re sandwiching it between grain-free chocolate cookies! I loosely based this recipe on my Mini “Oatmeal” Raisin […]

Why I Don’t Use a Microwave

Say No to the Microwave!

When I tell people that I haven’t used a microwave in over a decade, the reaction is usually one of these two: “You what?” [followed by a look of complete shock and a dropped jaw] “Oh, you’re one of those people.” [paired with an eye roll] – Often their initial response is followed up by […]

Carrot Cake Bites | www.DailyBitesBlog.com

One of the first recipes I shared here in the early days of Daily Bites was for my Carrot Cake Bites. I’ve been making them ever since, so I thought it was time to resurrect the recipe from the archives, tweak a few things, snap some (way better) new photos and share with you Carrot […]

Mismatched Monday

Mondays are for tackling to-do lists and getting into the swing of the week, right? For most of us, a case of The Weekend Is Over Syndrome sets in around 9 am on Monday mornings…and we end up kicking off the week in a rather sour spirit. Well I say we turn that Monday frown […]

Lemon Coconut Bars | DailyBitesBlog.com

It’s almost Mother’s Day, which means it’s time we start talking about sappy greeting cards and dainty lemon bars. Believe me, I love my mom, but when it comes to Mother’s Day I’ve learned that less is more with her. She’s not one for fancy brunch buffets or extravagant bouquets of flowers. A simple note […]
