  • Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

    My kids are addicted to these cookies! And I couldn’t be happier – they’re full of healthier ingredients and they’re nut-free! This is my first cookie recipe using NuNaturals Stevia (alcohol-free). Let me tell you, I loved cutting back the sugar (even unrefined sugar is sugar) and adding some stevia. If you want to skip the stevia (it’s okay, it took me a long time to come around to stevia), add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup. This recipe also uses my latest obsess...
  • 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 ...
  • Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I have a new favorite flour – pumpkin seed flour.  I’ve been experimenting with it for a month or so now and I just can’t get enough!  Oh, and you won’t believe how well it pairs with maple syrup – it just happens to be maple syrup season in these parts! There’s so much to love about pumpkin seed flour: I can make it at home with my coffee grinder; Pumpkin seeds are high in iron and zinc; Pumpkin seed flour is a nut-free replacement for almond flour; They add ...
  • 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. ...
  • Oh Mega Mix – Foods That Heal

    I’m hosting, this month’s Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free and the theme is Foods That Heal. Since the diagnosis of Pete’s celiac disease and Callum’s food sensitivities, I have witnessed first hand, the power of food. It has incredible healing powers. Nutrition has quickly become one of my passions, and one of the main reasons why I’m studying to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. I’ve been learning a lot about the importance of essential fatty acids (EFAs). ...
