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 [...]

Berry Chia Jam

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 [...]

Chickpeas, blended with peanut butter, sweetener and oats, and mixed with chocolate chips, tastes [...]

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 [...]

Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

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 [...]

Zucchini Lasagna

This veggie zucchini lasagna recipe is so good you won’t even miss the meat or the pasta! And it’s much healthier than regular lasagna because it’s pasta-free (lower carbs!), and includes fat-free ricotta cheese and part-skim mozzarella cheese. Great for vegetarians or those on a gluten-free diet. I like to add fresh diced tomatoes to my [...]

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 [...]

Apple and Goat Cheese Bruschetta

One of my favorite sandwiches is goat cheese and honey topped with sliced almonds. I was in the midst of adding this recipe when I started poking around the internet and came up with this apple and goat cheese bruschetta recipe that's a million times better! (Not that the sandwich isn't delish... this bruschetta just has [...]

Spinach and Goat Cheese Phyllo Triangles

Spinach and goat cheese phyllo triangles are one of my favorite appetizers! Typically, feta cheese is used in Spanakopita recipes, but personally, I think it tastes better with goat cheese. And goat cheese is healthier because it’s lower in calories, fat, and dairy than cow’s milk, so it’s easier for your body to digest. You're welcome [...]

Lentil Sloppy Joes

This is the best idea ever! A new and improved version of your old childhood favorite... except with protein and fiber packed lentils! I'll admit, I struggle with dinner recipes. I love to snack, but when it comes to concocting healthy dinner recipes, I have to be really stoked about it. Pizza and tacos are [...]

Electric Lemonade Cocktail

I have a thing for blue drinks. Or really, any drink that looks pretty. My go-to cocktail tends to be flavored vodka and soda water, since it's the healthiest low calorie, sugar-free option. But after a while, a plain ole transparent drink tends to get a little boring. So I have to improvise. I have [...]

Black Bean Burrito

Ah, black beans. I have so many good things to say about them. They're packed with protein... high in fiber... great for your digestive tract... I could go on and on. For these black bean burritos, you can use any tortilla of your choice. My favorite tortillas for these are the wheat and corn flour tortillas [...]

Strawberry Banana Crepes

These strawberry banana crepes are topped with an easy, dairy-free, 5-ingredient Nutella sauce. Normally, Nutella is made with hazelnuts, but I used peanut butter in this recipe because hazelnut butter isn’t sold in most grocery stores, and making your own hazelnut butter requires a food processor. (If you have a food processor, feel free to [...]
