Fresh Pressed Rainbow Juice

I recently read an article in the NY Times about the importance of cardiovascular health for women, and that the hearts of young women are especially at risk. And while many women fear cancer, more women in the United States die from heart attacks or strokes, than all cancers combined. I couldn’t help but think […]

Leek, White Bean & Tuna Spring Salad

We have Taylor to thank for this salad. Last week when she made this dinner, she added it to the menu at the last minute and it may have been my favorite part of the whole meal, I loved it so much I practically licked the bowl clean. The original recipe is from┬áThe Silver Spoon […]

Moroccan Chicken Salad

California Pizza Kitchen is hands down, Syd’s favorite place to eat. The kid would be content to eat their mac n cheese every single day for the rest of his life. Or at least until his taste buds evolve a bit. My point being, whenever there’s a special occasion to celebrate and we leave the […]

Caramelized Onion & Chicken Gluten Free Flatbread Pizza

A couple of months after I completed my first 21 day cleanse, my friend Mary decided to give it a try. She had been suspecting she had some food sensitivities, so she figured it would be a good way to rule anything out. Lucky for us, a couple of weeks in, she got a bit […]

One Pot Chicken Root Vegetable Stew

One pot meals are always my favorite kind. With the busyness of the holidays all around us, I’ve been relying on simple meals to get us through. And really, I think simple meals are the best way to go most of the time anyway – holidays or not. I’ve also really been making an effort […]

Savory Parmesan Kale Spinach Bites

I rarely go to Trader Joe’s anymore for the simple fact that each time I go in, they always steal too much of my money. They’re deals on cheese, some produce and various jarred items like honey and coconut oil make it feel like you’re going to walk in and save a ton, but they […]

Harvest Carrot Quinoa Salad

I think a lot of times I get hung up on thinking that Thanksgiving is a time for indulgence as much as it is about being grateful and spending time with my loved ones. I’m all for going along with traditions, but sometimes I also think there is a place for new traditions to be […]

Apple Cider Moscow Mules

When I was in Lake Arrowhead with my boot camp group for Oktoberfest, I made my first ever Moscow Mule. I didn’t realize how crazy easy they were to make, as the copper mugs they are traditionally served in, always made them seem like some elusive, intimidating cocktail that only the hippest of bartenders could […]

Slow Cooker Bolognese

My friend gave me a big sack of garden tomatoes. Now, I know what you’re probably thinking I’m absolutely, 100% crazy for wanting to turn those into a sauce when I should be thickly slicing and devouring them with nothing more than a sprinkle of coarse salt and fresh ground pepper. The problem is when […]

No Bake Lemon Macaroons

These little power balls, made with a bevy of awesome ingredients, are floating all over the internet and Instagram. After many of us stashed protein bars in our cars and purses for so long, we’re looking for an alternative that provides the same benefits of protein bars – filling, yummy and convenient – but without […]
