Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes

The added pumpkin and spices make these grain-free pancakes over-the-top delicious!  I love making these all year long, but especially during pumpkin season.  My 2 year old repeatedly says, “mmmm, yummy pancakes,” while devouring them.              

Oven Baked Salmon

Oven Baked Salmon

Salmon is a wonderful source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamins A, D, B6, B, E, and it also has significant amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc!

It is, however, very important to consume only wild salmon, and not farmed, to avoid potential antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides and/or GMOs.  Good news, Alaskan Sockeye salmon is not allowed to be farmed.

I love cooking my salmon this way, because it is loaded with delicious flavor, and is never overcooked.  It’s by far my most favorite way of consuming the healthiest fish on the planet.  My kids really love it too!

One Pot Vegetable Rice Soup

One Pot Vegetable Rice Soup

I love soups so much, but I don’t make them very much in the summer, for obvious reasons. But when the clouds rolled in today, and the rain started to fall, I knew that this extremely simple and wholesome soup was just the fix. It’s a […]

Simple Vegetable Stir Fry

Simple Vegetable Stir Fry

Coconut Aminos is created when the coconut tree is tapped. It then produces a very nutrient-rich sap that exudes from the coconut blossoms. This sap is very low glycemic and is an abundant source of amino acids, minerals, vitamin C and more. It is however […]

Healthy Homemade Almond Milk

Healthy Homemade Almond Milk

Almond milk is a fantastic alternative to milk. It’s lactose and casein free, which makes it a healthy and easy to digest choice for most people.

Homemade almond milk is so silky, creamy, flavorful and insanely delicious. Once you realize how easy and cost effective it is to make yourself, you’ll never want to turn back to the watered-down carton varieties (which can also contain fillers and preservatives).

(You’ll need to purchase a mesh nut milk bag to make your milk)
