Pumpkin Bliss Bites

  Healthy homemade snacks are my jam. I love snacking on yummy bites like these myself, and I also love sneaking healthy raw nuts and seeds into my daughters’ diets. Making little raw bites like these are a perfect way to do it. I’ve almost always got a batch made up in my fridge for grab and go snacking. These bites are beyond simple to make and shouldn’t take you long at all. Your food processor does most of the work. And, you only need a few ingredients to make them. These bites are full of good fats from the raw nuts. Healthy sources of fat help you stay fuller for...

Detoxifying Green Soup + Why I Love A Liquid-Only Day

  Since I returned from my health & education retreat at Sanoviv Medical Institute a few weeks ago, I’ve been loving the practice of incorporating a liquid day (or partial liquid day) into my weekly routine. At Sanoviv, they teach holistic health and that food is medicine for our bodies, both for prevention and for healing. Sanoviv practices a liquid day once a week with their patients and guests. It’s designed to give the digestive system a rest, and it consists of a variety of smoothies, green drinks, hot and cold teas, blended soups, bone broths, nut milks, and plenty...

Sweet Chili Glazed Rice + Vegetable Bowl

Sweet Chili Glazed Rice + Vegetable Bowl

  Sometimes plain old roasted veggies won’t do. You want something a little more flavorful. A little bit spicy. Maybe you want your veggies even just a tiny bit sweet (but not too much because, sugar). That’s where this recipe comes in. This is an upgraded basic veggie saut√© with flavor from the toasted sesame oil, coconut aminos (basically a healthier version of soy sauce, but tamari or lite soy sauce works here, too), and the sweet ginger chili sauce. The recipe as is is more of a side dish to your meal. Add your favorite protein to round it out. I love to add a simple...

Simple Fish Tacos

  Nothing says summer to me like a perfect fish taco. It’s best to keep them simple, I think. I like to let the flavors of the fish and the spices really take the lead. And I think this recipe¬†does that — it’s pretty close to perfect! These tacos are light, and you can load them up with whatever fresh veggies you prefer. And my FAVORITE way to serve them is with a dollop of my Dairy-free Cashew Nacho Cheese Sauce. Trust me…don’t skip that step! SIMPLE FISH TACOS (GLUTEN-FREE & DAIRY-FREE) Makes 4 servings INGREDIENTS: 4 4-5 ounce pieces of white flaky...

Cashew Nacho Cheese Sauce (Dairy Free)

Cashew Nacho Cheese Sauce (Dairy Free)

    Go on…do yourself a favor and put this on EVERYTHING. And I do mean everything because it’s that good. And it’s dairy-free. But even if you’re not completely dairy free (or at all), you’ll still want to get in on this. I love dipping roasted sweet potatoes in it, drizzling it on my roasted veggies, on top of fish tacos (or any tacos), on eggs, instead of mayo on a turkey sandwich…you get the idea. On everything. This stuff is seriously going to change your life! CASHEW NACHO CHEESE SAUCE (DAIRY FREE) INGREDIENTS: 1 cup of raw cashews, soaked...

5-Ingredient Protein Bites

These bites might seem like they’re too good to be true, but they’re absolutely for real. I have so much trouble finding exactly what I want in a snack bar. I want one that: Tastes yummy Is low-glycemic Has plenty of protein, fiber and good fats Doesn’t contain any artificial sweeteners or processed sugar Is that too much to ask? I don’t think so. I have a lot of friends who go for “whole foods” bars with loads of nuts and dried fruit, but because most of those bars are pretty low in protein, they don’t keep me full and satisfied for very long. I...
