Vegan Pesto Two Ways With Vegetable Noodles

Vegetable noodles (zucchini or spaghetti squash) and homemade pesto is a great healthy swap when yearning for comfort food. Once you’ve made the pesto, there are so many creative ways to enjoy it from flatbread and pizza to eggs, veggie dip to chicken marinade and more. You can use your spiralizer to make zucchini noodles or bake a spaghetti squash and use a fork to scrape out the strands! Then simply toss the noodles in our pesto, add in additional veggies […]

Mediterranean Style Egg Frittata

Eggs, glorious eggs! We eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. Eggs are pretty much the perfect food (unless you have an intolerance, of course). Each perfectly packaged egg contains 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of heart healthy fats, generous amounts of B vitamins, folate, selenium, vitamins A, D, E and K and calcium and zinc. Eggs are also an excellent source of choline, a nutrient critical for brain growth and function. So eat up! These eggy […]

Breakfast Bars: A New Family Favorite

It was January 1st and I resolved to use up some of the superfoods stored in my pantry. I walked in to face bags of chia, hemp, flax, seeds, cacao and more. A Holistic Health Coach’s playground! But how to use them all in a delicious, easy, family friendly way? And then it hit me: Breakfast Bars! I took all of the superfoods out of my pantry, spread them out on the counter and grabbed a large mixing bowl, measuring […]

Recipe: Cookies You Can Feel Good About Eating!

My nieces live across the street from me and stop by often, which I love! They are 9 and 7 and full of energy and laughter. They frequently ask if we can bake something together. Something delicious, easy enough for them to help make and healthy! Yes, healthy! These requests are always spontaneous, so we have to work with whatever is stocked in my pantry and fridge. And of course, our creativity. This morning we made our second version of healthy […]

Sweet Super Seed Bread: Vegan, Gluten-Free and Addicting

Recipe: Sweet Seed Bread I’ve been wanting to make a vegan, gluten-free superfood seed bread for so long! I’ve read countless recipes and tasted dozens of dense and delicious creations at healthy bakeries. They always seems so daunting to make, but this slightly sweet version is super simple, quick and too good to miss out on. This loaf is jam packed with protein, fiber, omegas, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents and more. Most of us already know about the vast […]

Peach Coffee Cake with Pecan Crumble: Healthy and Decadent

Coffee Cake is that beautiful, delicious yet forbidden treat that begs to be eaten at every coffee shop and bakery, every brunch and morning gathering. It smells of cinnamon and sugar, is dense and satisfying, and usually calorie and sugar laden. Not this one! Our Peach Coffee Cake with Pecan Crumble is everything you crave in a sweet bread without any of the guilt. It is gluten-free and void of any processed sugars. So go to your local farmers market and […]

Zucchini Blueberry and Chocolate Protein Muffins

Get your fruits, veggies, protein and antioxidants all in one delicious gluten-free and vegan muffin! Great for a healthy snack, breakfast or dessert. Who knew zucchini with chocolate could taste good? We got our weekly Our Harvest (www.ourharvest.com) farm fresh delivery and were in awe of the beautiful local yellow zucchini and fresh blueberries. Delivery arrived at 7 pm and we just had dinner, but wanted a healthy bite that the kids (and us!) would enjoy. So, we came up […]

Cauliflower, Miso and Chive Soup

Bright yet savory nourishing and detoxing soup using local organic summer goodness! Drink in the antioxidants and vitamins. Cauliflower is high in vitamins (great source of vitamin C), minerals, potassium and phytonutrients that helps neutralize damaging toxins. It’s also great for detoxing due to the Glucosinolates, sulfur-containing compounds. Chives are delicately sweet and have an onion flavor. They contain a noteworthy amount of antioxidants, plant fibers, minerals, and vitamins (high amounts of A and K—145% and 177% respectively, of the […]

Warm Cauliflower ‘Couscous’ with Herbs and Kale

We were entertaining and wanted to prepare something different than the traditional green salad. So, we came up with this fresh, bright and detoxing 10 minute low-carb goodness! The beautiful local herbs inspired us along with the lovely green cauliflower. We adore warm veggies or grains on salads. The warm grated cauliflower creates a couscous like texture that melts into the fresh herbs and olive oil. Bliss. The spicy pepitas sautéed with cayenne add a richness and pop. Serve as […]

Beet, Tofu and Basil Burgers

Vegan, gluten free, antioxidant and protein packed goodness! We’ve made a few variations of vegan burgers over the years and finally came up with a version that we adore with the right consistency. They are colorful, fresh and savory. Perfect healthy option for summer gatherings and grilling! Kids love them too. Many vegan burgers fall apart because they don’t use eggs. We use chia seeds as our egg replacement and it worked brilliantly. We are huge fans of chia seeds. […]
