Brussel Sprout Chips with Hazelnut Oil

These super easy chips only have three ingredients and are packed with nutrients and antioxidants. If you’re a nerd like me, here’s some brief health info on these ingredients: 1. Brussel Sprouts help prevent cancer, help detox our bodies, and act as an anti-inflammatory all at the same time. Not to mention, they are PACKED…

Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream

Paleo, vegan, healthy ice cream? Yup, it’s possible- Thanks to this delicious recipe that my friend, Cindi Mitchell, shared with me! This ‘ice cream’ is loaded with potassium, protein and vitamins, doesn’t have any sugar or dairy, and it tastes just like chocolate ice cream. On those days when you just want a sweet dessert… this will surely satisfy your craving. Before…

Arugula Fig Salad with Pecans and Honey Cider Dressing

Arugula is my favorite type of salad. To make it even better, this salad only takes 15 minutes (not even) to make. AND it looks like it’s gourmet (illusions illusions). If you have grilled chicken or salmon, you could always add some on top. This is a great as lunch, dinner, a side dish, appetizer,…

Mighty Meat Stew

It’s MARCH and the cold winter is (unfortunately) still here.  In hopes of improving my mood, I downed some Vitamin D and made this stew.  It’s simple, healthy, and hearty. Essentially you chop up some meat, veggies, pour in some broth, and cook it in the crockpot all day until you get home from work….

Beat mashed banana with…

Stuff Your Sole

I don’t know about you, but I question most online fish recipes. Why? a.) because it’s easy to mess up a fish dish and b.) fish tends to be expensive so it’s a shame to try a recipe only to find that it’s not so great or that you screwed up somehow. I realize that…

BAM! (Paleo Gluten Free Banana Apple Muffins)

Gluten free, sugar-free, fake sugar-free, grain free… muffins that taste GOOD. Sidebar: I was at Panera the other day and saw that my favorite the ‘pumpkin muffin’ is 590 calories. That’s A LOT of gym time. This is what happens when there is 2.5 feet of blizzard snow outside waiting to be shoveled, I put…
