I've got to thank Uncle Howard and Gluten Free Gus for the most amazing Valentine's Day (or any special occasion) chocolate mousse pie. It's gluten-free, vegan, low sugar, healthy, raw and downright decadent. Oh, and it's pretty darn easy to make too. I absolutely love...

Sometimes the veggie burger and salad menu needs some perking up and who doesn't love a good chip? This is such an easy and healthy way to have some fries that you are going to want to do this at least once a week. The...

I try to mix things up in the off-season: spin classes, yoga, weight training, and basically having fun staying fit. Not that I don't do that when I'm training for an event, but now is the time to spend more time with your family,...

I love to make treats to share with friends at the holidays and a few years ago I decided to tackle the persimmon. Now, if you haven't had one, you might be a bit curious about their taste which is sort of pear-like even though...

In the process of making my kale salad I decide to go off on a tangent and throw a few things in the Vitamix. I read about a white bean and kale dip on Emmy Cooks and that was my inspiration. I...

  I have to thank Elisa over at Eating Whole for the most amazing gluten free bread recipe ever! I merely adapted her recipe to make muffins with ingredients I had available. I've made them 3 times so far and they've come out perfectly every time.  I also learned about ratio of 1:3 for flax...

I'm still working with acorn squash and this coming weekend I have some beautiful butternut squash to work with which may involve making my coconut curry butternut squash soup  (if I do I'll share!) which is so delicious.  We wanted a simple dinner that highlighted...

Beans can be such a wonderful and simple savory meal.  They are not only low in fat and cholesterol, but are a great source of protein. This was a meal prepared in less than 30 minutes.  After sauteing an onion and garlic with a little...
