TURMERIC MILK 3 WAYS

I love turmeric milk and often recommend it to my clients especially since I always start with a focus on gut health. What’s interesting is that 90% of all cells and genetic material are in your gut and 80% of your immune system is in your gut. Many of your hormones are manufactured in your Read More

Almond Pancakes

I love almonds! Always have, always will! I remember as a young girl, I really loved marzipan, I mean it’s just so delicious. It was by far my favorite dessert and my grandpa used to buy me a cake with marzipan in it for my birthday ever year. This recipe has that amazing almond taste Read More

Ginger Cinnamon Cookie

This recipe was inspired by my daughter. She’ll be decorating cookies at school this week and I wanted to offer her something that she’ll love, but that is also a healthy treat, and so I created this Paleo bear claw. We tested them out together, had fun working on the recipe and she got to Read More

PLANTAIN WAFFLES

I love plantains! They’re so versatile! These waffles are so easy to make, you’ll want to make them everyday. All you need is a blender, the ingredients and a waffle iron. Let me tell you more about plantains and why I like them so much. Plantains look a lot like bananas but they are starchier, Read More

OLIVE TAPENADE

OLIVE TAPENADE I love olives! They’re very high in vitamin E, monounsaturated fats as well as powerful antioxidants including polyphenols, which have proven anticancer, anti-diabetic and anti-aging effects. They are known to boost heart health, help regulate blood pressure levels, help fight infection and are a natural probiotic. The monounsaturated fatty acids found in olives, Read More

BREAKFAST SEED “OATMEAL”

This twist on a traditional oatmeal recipe is oat-free making it both gluten and grain-free. It’s also an opportunity for women to use this recipe as “seed cycling” to balance their hormones primarily estrogen in the first 14 days of their cycle (follicular phase) and progesterone days 15 and on (luteal phase), until the end Read More

CHOCOLATE CHIP VANILLA MUFFINS

CHOCOLATE CHIP VANILLA MUFFINS I created this recipe for my kids’ upcoming birthdays. I wanted something tasty and delicious without all of the nasty ingredients store-bought cupcakes have to offer. What’s great is that I’ve decided to work on reducing the added sugar content by switching out the maple syrup for date puree, so the Read More

AVOCADO BREAKFAST BOWL

AVOCADO BREAKFAST BOWL Breakfast is one of those meals that can be so daunting! Remove toast and cereal and it’s an enigma. We’re so conditioned to believing that breakfast is cereal, oatmeal, toast or eggs. But this is a recipe for disaster. Kids rely on cereal for nourishment but this couldn’t be further from the Read More

CAULIFLOWER TABBOULEH

CAULIFLOWER TABBOULEH I love Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine so much! Who doesn’t right? I mean, the ingredients, the spices, the textures, the lemon, it’s all so delicious! And since I like playing around with recipes and creating new dishes, this Cauliflower Tabbouleh was inspired by the traditional tomato-bulgur tabbouleh dish, but with a few Read More

Mixed Berry Chia Jam

MIXED BERRY CHIA JAM In every possible case, I always try to avoid processed foods. Processed foods are filled with food-like products such as preservatives, chemicals, hydrogenated fats, etc. So when at all possible, I’ll prepare food from scratch this way I know what’s in them and what I’m feeding my family. Jam is no Read More
