    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. It’s my blogging-anniversary! I’ve been at this blogging thing for five years this week. It’s been an amazing 5 years and I’ve met and connected with some really incredible women. I am so grateful for all of my readers, recipe testers, and recipe tasters. I have learned so much in the past five years - about baking, taking food photos, nutrition, and so much more!  I ...
  • Date-Sweetened Granola

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Berry season is in full swing where we live – we had a delicious crop of strawberries (did you see my recipe for Strawberry Oat Squares ?) and now we’re in the middle of raspberry season. I can’t seem to get enough of these delightful little berries. One of my favorite ways to eat berries is on my cereal. When I was younger I would douse my Shreddies in brown sugar and ...
  • Easy and Every Day Raw Food Recipes from Choosing Raw

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. When I first discovered raw foods I was a little overwhelmed. I didn’t have a dehydrator (I didn’t even know what it was) and I was just getting into green smoothies! I wish I’d had a resource like Gena Hamshaw’s new book Choosing Raw: Making Raw Foods Part of the Way You Eat. Gena is the creator of one of my fave blogs - Choosing Raw. I’ve been stealing quiet moments ...
  • Nacho Night With Neal Brothers (And a Recipe for No-Fuss Bean Dip)

    Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. Once in a while we like to make a really easy dinner, especially when the kids have swimming lessons that run until 6:15! Most of the time, our dinner requires planning and preparation since we make most of our food from scratch. Our fast food nights usually involve ordering in from one of our favorite gluten-free friendly restaurants, and when we want to skip take out and make ...
  • Apricot and Almond Loaf

        Make sure you subscribe to my newsletter to get your copy of 10 Easy Recipes For The Gluten-Free Beginner. This Apricot and Almond loaf has been pretty popular around here. I have been baking it and giving it away as gifts to our Osteopath and our Naturopath. Both of them love it. If you’re planning on giving loaves of homemade quick bread away during the holiday season, this is your recipe. This Apricot and Almond loaf is low in refined sugar, high in protein, and ...
  • Homemade Gluten-Free Tortilla Chips

    I am a huge fan of guacamole.  I would happily eat it every day (with a spoon or a cracker, but especially on a corn chip from our local Mexican restaurant). Sadly though, corn and I don’t get along very well.  Which I am okay with most of the time (except when we go to that local Mexican restaurant, then I give in). At home, it's much easier to avoid corn.  We don't eat many packaged foods, so we don't get it there.  If I do buy corn, I make sure it's organic and preferably ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, and Dairy-Free Blueberry Buckle

    I don’t know about you, but I am in love with blueberries. They are a powerful little berry. They’re super high in antioxidants, and did you know they actually have anti-aging effects? That's why we start each day with a shot of organic blueberry juice. My two-year old loves snacking on frozen blueberries. Her fingers and mouth get stained and stay stained most of the day. Her clothes undoubtedly get spotted with blue smears, as does the floor. Sometimes I even find a smooshed ...
