Quick-Fix Chili

Quick-Fix Chili

Growing up my mom would always make us some warming chili once the weather started turning colder.  Now every year I get a craving for this delicious chili, that couldn’t be any easier to make! To maintain the healthy element, I always purchase organic grass-fed […]

Healthy Hot Chocolate

Healthy Hot Chocolate

My daughter loves, I mean LOVES hot chocolate, but I prefer her to enjoy it without having unnecessary ingredients and loads of sugar.  This version uses only pure and nourishing ingredients, and still satisfies that hot chocolate craving. (Note: If you have access to raw […]

Coconut Milk Egg Nog

Coconut Milk Egg Nog

Egg nog is what my husband looks forward to most during the holidays. I have to agree with him, however, store-bought varieties can be really frustrating to me, with all the ridiculous ingredients added to preserve, thicken, and sweeten it.
 
A good quality cream (preferably raw if you can find it), is what delivers the rich, creamy texture of egg nog. Cream is also rich in healthy fats, vitamin K, and many more nutrients too, so don’t shy away from it! 
 
So once you combine delicious cream with egg yolks, grass-fed gelatin, and coconut milk, you have yourself a creamy, nutrient-packed festive drink!
 
(And if you’re wary about consuming raw egg yolks, please don’t be! Raw egg yolks are highly digestible and full of readily-available nutrients. Just make sure you buy only true organic eggs from pastured hens!)

Creamy Sweet Potato Broccoli Soup

Creamy Sweet Potato Broccoli Soup

This is my 4-yr-old daughter’s favorite soup right now.  She gobbles it up without question, while repeatedly telling me how I’m the best cook in the whole world. 🙂  It’s also very easy to make, and oh so good for you!    

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are my all-time favorite kind of cookie.  I love the cakey texture, pumpkin flavor, and of course the addition of chocolate.  I didn’t think it was possible to make a healthified version of this traditional flour-based cookie, but these will knock […]

Tuna Cakes

I love to make these tuna cakes for lunch to switch things up a bit. It’s such a simple and great way to get some Omega 3 fatty acids into your diet.

Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler

Peach season is here! So that means peaches & cream, peach smoothies, and peach cobbler! Growing up, my mom would make the most divine peach cobbler recipe ever! But since it sadly doesn’t fit my gluten-free, refined-sugar-free criteria, I was determined to create one as close […]

One-Pot Chicken Dinner

One-pot meals are seriously the best. Not only is this a healthy, crowd-pleasing, easy-to-make meal, the clean up is also a breeze too!

Make sure you use organic chicken and veggies if possible, and even enjoy reheating these tasty leftovers the next day.
