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…

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…

Paleo Granola!

My friend gave me this recipe from paleotable.com over the summer, because a bunch of us were trying to eat ‘paleo’ and I was getting so sick of eggs and meat for breakfast.  Most other breakfast options are wheat and dairy, but not this granola. It beats almost every other I’ve tried, and it’s perfect…

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,…

Sunflower Coconut Balls

Yup. Paleo protein balls of coconut and sunflower goodness. That’s all I have to say. Now, go make some: Ingredients: 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 1/3 cup sunflower butter 1/2 cup shredded coconut (and some extra to roll the balls in) 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate (I used dark choc. chips) 2 tbsp honey (maple syrup…

Paleo PANCAKES!

As my friend Jack Johnson sings about making banana pancakes and pretending like it’s the weekend, … break it down, paleo style- Ingredients: 1 mushed ripe banana 1 egg white 1/3 cup almond flour 1/2 cup blueberries 1 tbsp vanilla protein drink (or almond milk will work great as well)  What To Do: 1. Beat mashed banana with…

Gluten Free BB Brownies

Sounds disgusting, but I promise you these brownies actually taste like chocolate. You cannot even detect the slightest hint of black bean AND the best part is that it’s practically all healthy for you. When I tell people about these brownies, they ask “what’s the point? Why not just have a brownie if you want…
