Almond Golden Milk

The most beneficial warm fall drink you can ever have.

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
