  • Easy Peasy Crunchy Chopped Salad

    We can't seem to get enough of asparagus around here!  Where we live, it's our first local crop that bursts outta nowhere and carries us into Summer's beautiful bounty! Pete and I love it steamed and roasted, but this year we tried throwing it raw into our salads. And it's delightful. Asparagus is super high in vitamins and minerals (like vitamin K and vitamin A) so why not try to sneak it in to more meals. We like to eat a lot of salads at our house, and we like to switch up our ...
  • Savory Gluten-Free Crackers

    I think most of you know what a few of my favorite things are: cookies, muffins, smoothies, and pumpkin seed flour! I’m slightly obsessed with it lately, but that’s a good thing. Pumpkin seed flour is a super nutritious way to get some vitamins and minerals from your diet. You must use raw pumpkin seeds though! Roasted pumpkin seeds don’t have the same oil content, or the same nutritional value. This recipe for gluten-free crackers was born for a good cause. My friend Tess from ...
  • Omega 3 White Bean Dip

    I like bean dips because you can sneak all sorts of goodies into your food processor and end up with a protein-boost. It’s fabulous. Plus, my kids love to dip! When I’m feeling a little lazy, it’s so easy to grab a can of beans and whip up a nutritious bean dip. It’s also really easy to use some leftover cooked beans to make a dip. I added some hemp hearts to this bean dip recipe so I could up the amount of heart-healthy omega 3's.  They help reduce cholesterol and lower your ...
  • Nut-Free Granola Bars

    It’s maple syrup season in these parts and I am making the most of it.  How can we not when the stuff is flowing from the trees, begging us to use it! As you know, I’m in love with pumpkin seed flour so naturally I had to try my hand at a nut-free granola bar recipe. Pumpkin seeds feature prominently in this recipe, and why not?  They’re naturally high in iron, magnesium, and zinc; all are essential minerals for women’s health and wellness. Honestly, you’d never ...
  • Sweet Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick’s Day

    This is an old family recipe that I finally converted, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.  My Mom is famous for her Scone, and has been making it for years.  Pete and I haven’t had any since going gluten-free, so I knew St. Paddy’s Day would be the perfect excuse to convert my Mom’s recipe to a gluten-free and dairy-free recipe. As always, I used whole grain gluten-free flours to make my conversion.  If you’re familiar with scone or Irish Soda Bread, you know the flavor ...
  • Vitamin C Green Smoothie

    We love our morning smoothies. My kids don’t drink one every day, but Pete and I do. We’ve recently gotten my parents hooked too. And my sister!  Who's next? Green smoothies rock for so many reasons: 1. You can literally feel your cells lighting up moments after drinking your green smoothie. 2. It’s such a great way to get a salad in you before noon. 3. You can load up your blender with super foods. 4. They’re tasty and you can change them up every time you make them. 5. ...

We may be thousands of miles away from each other, but that’s not ...
  • Foods That Heal

    As you know, I had the honor of hosting January's Go Ahead Honey, It's Gluten-Free event.  I chose the theme Foods That Heal and I was completely overwhelmed by the response I had. I can't wait to share it with you. Sometimes, foods that heal means your body needs healing; perhaps after illness, disease, surgery, or just time to recover after finally discovering your allergies. Other times, foods that heal refer to preventative healing.  I'm a huge believer in using food to prevent ...
  • Homemade Rustic Vegetable Soup

      I’m hosting January’s Go Ahead Honey It’s Gluten-Free event - the theme this month is Foods That Heal. At the beginning of the month I shared my recipe for our Oh-Mega Mix.  As January ends, I want to share my recipe for homemade rustic vegetable soup.  It’s a pretty simple recipe, but my kids love it and that makes mealtime so much easier. We always make a batch of soup when someone in the house is feeling under the weather with a cold.  Soups are fast, nutrit...
  • Cookie Dough Milkshake – Swap Your Sweeteners

    Welcome to the third installment of New Year, New You! Hallie of Daily Bites and Lexie of Lexie's Kitchen have organized an inspirational blogging event with the goal of encouraging all of us to Take the Pure Living Plunge! What does Pure Living mean? For me pure living refers to eating whole foods and nutritious foods. Pure living also means eating foods that keep your body clean, and make you feel your very best. Pete and I spent most of 2011 taking the pure living plunge, and ...
