Baked Sweet Potato Tots with Honey Mustard Dip

There's a German restaurant up the street from my house that has the best sweet potato tots. I go there all the time just to order the tots, but for some reason it never occurred to me before to learn how to make my own. I thought it was going to be difficult, but I just [...]

Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad

This quinoa tabbouleh salad is a little different from your average tabbouleh because: A) I use quinoa instead of bulgur for it's nutritional values. (Low glycemic, gluten-free packed with fiber!) B) I use chopped spinach instead of parsley, and add diced cucumbers and crumbled goat cheese for additional flavor. C) I like to serve it [...]

These zucchini pizza boats are the perfect light, healthy meal, and they only require 6 ingredients to make! It's hard sometimes to come up with recipes that don't include heavy grains, so I love recipes like this where you can substitute a vegetable for bread or pasta.  (I also love making recipes with heirloom tomatoes this [...]

Very Berry Oatmeal Cups

This is one of those recipes that took me forever to get right. You'd think muffins would be easy to whip up. But I wanted to make these muffins packed with protein, so I had to make a few adjustments. The biggest adjustment was replacing flour with rolled oats, because oats are richer in protein than wheat flour. [...]

Chocolate Almond Bark

It took me a while to perfect the art of homemade chocolate. I explored different sweeteners... agave, maple syrup, raw honey... and I finally decided that coconut palm sugar was the winner. Coconut palm sugar also has over 40% less fructose than cane sugar and over 75% less fructose than agave nectar. I use different sweeteners [...]

I will never buy jam or jelly from a grocery store ever again. Neither will you after you make this delicious berry chia jam. There's just something about all-natural, homemade jam that tastes so much better than store-bought jam. Fresh with the just right amount of sweetness. Not to mention, chia seeds are loaded with [...]

Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

During my cooking experiments, I've found that the simplest recipes are often the hardest ones to perfect. The two recipes I had the hardest time with were berry muffins and chocolate chip cookies. I try to use minimal flour and minimal sugar in my recipes to create healthier versions, but I found that both recipes [...]

Years ago, I stopped eating meat due to digestive issues, which is one of the reasons I started this blog… to create and share healthy, flavorful meat-free recipes! Over time, I discovered many great alternatives out there: black beans, chickpeas, lentils, marinated tofu, and even… cauliflower! After a while, it became a fun challenge to [...]

Greek Yogurt Potato Salad

This was my first time making Greek yogurt potato salad and I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. I LOVE potato salad, but I tend to steer clear of it since it’s overloaded with mayo. I didn’t think it would taste as good with Greek yogurt, but I’m happy [...]

Skinny Mocha Frappuccino

There's nothing I love more than a frozen mocha frappuccino on a hot summer morning. But as delicious as those Starbucks drinks may be, they also contain a lot of sugar, and cost quite a bit. (I also like having my coffee first thing when I wake up without having to leave the house.) These homemade [...]
