Cream of Mushroom Soup (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo, Vegan Option)

With the holidays upon us, there are some staples that one cannot live without this time of the year. Unfortunately, allergies, food sensitivities and auto-immune syndromes can often lead to feeling like we have to miss out on many of our favorite foods. Not so, I say! With the exception of baklava, there are few […]

Rainbow Salad

One day, my husband looked at me lovingly and said those five little words many of us never expect to hear: “Honey, I miss your salad.” Yes, my salad. I guess it had been a few weeks since I had made one of my nutrient-packed salads and my husband had a craving. Now if only […]

Coconut Flour Apple Crumble (nut-free)

When Phoebe invited me to her Virtual Viewing Party and All-American Potluck, the first thing that popped into my mind was apple pie. I mean, besides hot dogs, what is more American than apple pie? Only, I am not a huge fan of apple pie. Don’t ask me why, I am not 100% certain; I […]

Have you met my friend, Gluten-Free Gigi? Gigi is a scientist turned health specialist and I simply adore and always learn so much from her “A Side of Science” series.  Gigi was one of the guest-bloggers for last year’s Healthy Lunchbox series where she shared a delicious chocolate chip mini-muffin recipe.  This year she made me […]

Healthy Lunchbox 2012: Peachy Coconut Streusel Muffins

When most people think of muffins, they think high-carb, grain-filled, low-nutritional value item. The last thing I want to feed my children is anything that meets that type of description. The great thing about grain-free cooking is that a majority of flours (nut, seed and coconut) are naturally high in fabulous fiber, protein and nutrients.  […]
