Mango Lassi Smoothie

And don’t worry, the yolks make the smoothie even more creamy – you […]

I’m excited the message about real, unprocessed foods is slowly reaching the mainstream. Last week, the New York Times announced that a “large and exhaustive new analysis by a team of international scientists found no evidence that eating saturated fat increased heart attacks and other cardiac events.”.  This latest study only affirms this study from […]

The Perfect Fudgy Brownie (Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten Free)

February 6, 2014

Thick, Homemade Yogurt (with Dairy-Free Option)

December 10, 2013

These are grain free?!” That’s what Pete said after he took his first bite of a freshly-baked molasses cookie. I laughed. I haven’t used grains in my cooking for over two years – of course it was grain-free! Quite the compliment, actually. I watched as he went back for two more cookies. When Pete goes […]
