This recipe was inspired by my favorite coffee shop that serves the most amazing blueberry muffin. I go there a few days a week to work and they have the absolute best cappuccino ever - strong and smooth - and I always get their paleo muffin. Its a perfect blend of light and fluffy, tasty, blueberry filled, a bit of crunch and very filling! I would eat one of these and be satisfied for at least 3-4 hours which if you know me, is quite a feat! So after paying $4 for my favorite muffin several times and carefully studyihg each bite, I decided to give it a try and make it myself!Read More
This is one of my favorite recipes and I LOVE making this in the fall to warm my belly. I may have started the process early because I was craving it in August but we had a cool week here in Denver and really put me in the mood for warm soul food.
This recipe is very simple and I love to use my crock pot for this recipe. It makes life easy for me the more I can use my crockpot. I've tried every type of "healthy" vegan split pea soup - normally it comes it with ham - and this one is soooooo incredibly creamy and smooth AND contains NO dairy! How amazing is that?Read More
Yes, I know its been 9 days since I've posted a recipe but the creative juices just weren't flowin! Ya hear me? I mean it really takes some creative inspiration to come up with these recipes and really execute well so I have to do it when I'm in the zone. And well today, friends I'm back in the zone!
For this recipe you can really swap out to make it fully paleo or vegan and I'll give you some variations in the ingredients list. Its very simple and however way you decide to spin it, I'm sure it will turn out to be bomb.
This bake has a sweet and cakey-vibe but then add in the lemon curd and.......daaaannnnggg. Legit! So I decided to add the curd till last minute and then wanted to stack it and make it a double decker delight with the custard in between just to create a more interesting looking dish. However way to decide to make this, it will rock your taste buds.Read More
Before I stared this recipe I had no idea how it would turn out. I really was just looking to create a fresh sweet bake with some fresh fruit. Well it turns out it turned out pretty amazing. It was light, filling, tasty and completely guiltless! Very excited to share this recipe with all of you!Read More
If you can't tell by looking at my blog I LOVE desserts. More importantly, I LOVE chocolate and cookie dough. However, if I'm going to eat cookie dough, I'm going to make it healthy because I really want more than what I should have and I know my limits! Once I start into it, I lose it. So its better to know I'm eating "healthy" versions to keep my health in check!Read More
One of my favorite cakes ever is carrot cake! I’m not a huge fan of cake but if I’m gonna eat it, its gotta be carrot, or red velvet all the way. I tried this variation to make a cleaner and healthier version of some of my favorites. I happen to love this recipe and it was very fudgy, diary free, gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan and all around wholesome ingredients.Read More
According to my husband, these turned out quite well! It was a dabble in trying to create more "meat" friendly recipes. Clearly as you can see by reading my blog and recipes that I do not eat meat, however that doesn't mean I don't prepare it. My husband is a huge fan of all types of meat, poultry and I do make it for him on the reg! This recipe was inspired by him wanting to eat chicken fingers - don't ask me why he had a craving but he was ready to order from the kids menu using our baby as an excuse to eat them! Rather than him going that route, I decided I needed to try a new chicken recipe - and a healthy one at that - to help him satisfy his cravings:)Read More
This actually turned out much better than I expected and am VERY happy with the result! The whole family enjoyed this one! Total prep time was about 30 minutes and total cook time was about 15. Overall 45 minutes for a delicious meal isn't bad! If you add to this recipe you can create a meal for 2 dinners / 2 different days if you want! I just happen to have a very hungry husband that never leaves leftovers! I hope you enjoy!Read More
The name is everything! I couldn't think of a better description for these and this sounded right on! So this is the easiest nut mix ever to create and it takes literally no prep time at all. Throw them in the crock pot - or I guess if you have a modern day Insta Pot - and voila! I'm still stuck in the stone ages and I happen to LOVE my crock post so if you have another means I guess you can just speed up the wait time for the deliciousness!Read More
