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…

Fresh Mango Guacamole (Paleo and Vegan)

Sweet and spicy. It’s the best combination. You’ll love this homemade mango guacamole and everyone that you feed it to will love it too. Not joking.  What you need: 2-3 avocados (tomatoes- see salsa option below) 3-4 tablespoons cilantro 1 Serrano pepper 1 mango 1/3 cup red onion (chopped) 3 teaspoons olive oil 1 lime (the…

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…

Spinach Souffle

Popeye the Sailor Man. Love that guy. He made me love spinach, which is good for you. Although if I remember correctly, he also smoked a pipe which is not good for you. At all. So it’s  good thing spinach eating the most memorable. This soufflé is super easy… you basically can’t screw it up. I…

Ging-ah Curry Chicken

Chicken with a kick. I LOVE this, 1. because I love spices (obviously) and 2. because these specific spices are incredibly beneficial towards your health. These spices are beneficial for a multitude of health reasons, some being that they give your metabolism a boost, act as an antioxidant, improve your cardiovascular system specifically in reducing…

Kale Pesto

YAY, this was delicious. So two things. 1.) I know I’m not the first to make a kale pesto- but this is an original. As a common tread, I once again didn’t like the ones I was trying from the internet. I had pretty low expectations when I made this, but it magically became one…

G-ma’s Chunky Tomato Sauce

Straight from Alanno-scalo Italy- I present to you: my grandmother’s quick and easy chunky tomato sauce (I call her G-ma, you can too). As pictured to the left- my super Italian grandparents in Italy. Yes, G-pa looks like he’s in the mob. He’s probably not. I assure you. About this sauce. It’s great to make as…

Steamed Broccoli with Pine Nuts

“Eat your broccoli; it’s good for you.” I was a weird little kid so my mom didn’t really have to say that to me, ever. I was too busy pretending to be a Brachiosaurus dinosaur  that had to chomp all the tops off of the trees (more commonly known as broccoli florets). Weird, but healthy. Right. So I’m…

Apple Pancetta Stuffing (healthy & wheat-free)!

**Featured in The Paleo Magazine’s 3rd Annual Holiday Cookbook** THIS IS SO GOOD. I would choose it over traditional stuffing any day (yes, it’s true). I came up with this recipe because I wanted to make a wheat-free healthy stuffing that doesn’t simply replace the bread with loads of gluten-free bread or pounds of sausage. Oh- and…
