Paleo Raw Cookie Dough

Are you one of those people who blissfully *ignores* the raw egg warnings and eats raw cookie dough by the spoonful? Don’t feel bad. Everyone does it… but stop. And eat this instead. It’s a healthy, paleo, and raw cookie dough recipe without any of the butter, sugar, flour, or raw eggs. Ahhh yes, enjoy! What…

Paleo Pumpkin Bread

 Pumpkin everything. Yup. Judge me. After countless Fall seasons, a plethora of sugar laden mixes in the ‘health’ food stores, and numerous failed recipes on the internet, I’ve finally come up with the one. And this one is anything but your BASIC pumpkin bread. One because it’s paleo and two it’s actually healthy. This pumpkin bread is moist (we all hate…

Peppermint Johnny’s

My family has a history of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, as do most families living in the US. Heart Disease is huge in America. It affects 1 in 3 Americans and one person in America dies of a cardiovascular disease every 40 seconds. Actually, the problem goes beyond America: it affects most people in the world, no matter where they…

Pie Bite Trilogy

  Holiday Pie Bite Trilogy (Apple, Maple Pecan,& Pumpkin Bites) These tiny little bites of goodness are inspired by my love of LaraBars. If you have 5 minutes of time and want to save yourself some money, just take a little trip over to see my good friend Trader Joe’s house and get yourself some bags…

Pumpkin Skinny Spice Latte (Iced and Hot)

Pumpkin Coffee Time. It’s fall and that means one thing… PUMPKIN time. Which means PUMPKIN COFFEEEEEEEEE. My favorite kind of coffee. Literally. It’s a problem. I seriously have to watch myself in the fall, because pumpkin drinks are everywhere and they are usually around 300-600 calories each. Truth.   My all time favorite place is Dunkin Donuts. The pumpkin coffee there only has…

Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites

Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites This recipe is inspired by my friend and her family as they are OBSESSED with Banana Babies (those mini chocolate covered bananas on a stick). Whenever I visit, they are always in the fridge and we always end up eating them all. They are also sold at Trader Joes as chocolate covered banana…

Berry Love Trifle. Dessert BLT.

  Trifles are a staple summertime dessert. They’re sooooo good and so un-nutritious. Yep, made that word up. You love it. You’ll also love- this healthy version of layered goodness. It’s gluten/wheat free and replaces sugary messes with more beneficial messes. You’re going to need to make BAM muffins in a cake form first. But this recipe’s super easy. That’s…

Healthy-ish Lemon Cheesecake (Wheat-free & Gluten-free)

Cheese is delicious. Cake is delicious. Cheesecake, oh my gosh, whoever  invented that should get an award. It’s totally not healthy though. Surprise! I know you all thought it was… hah. Typically, it’s loaded with cream cheese, sugar, sour cream in addition to a graham cracker crust averaging around 500 calories per slice. Spoiler Alert: an…

Paleo Vegan Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I must preface this with the statement that while these cookies are technically paleo deliciousness… one must try not to eat the entire batch. You will want too. Consider yourself warned. Having a wheat intolerance, I pretty much avoid anything with wheat in it… or else I’ll feel pretty sick. Thank you GMOs. One of the hardest things…
