Anti-Inflammatory Banana Muffins

I love to cook, but I am not a baker. I experiment in the kitchen, making concoctions and adding in a little of this and some of that, an avid recipe reader, but not a very good recipe follower.

How would I make […]

Chickpea Salad–A Simple 5 Minute Meal

We love this chickpea dish for its versatility. Prep a big batch and then enjoy it all week in a variety of ways! This is our vegan and gluten free version of a healthy tuna or chicken salad, loaded with protein, fiber and omega 3s (healthy fat!). It takes 5 minutes to toss together and you can enjoy it so many ways. Try serving it over a chopped spinach salad, make a “melt” on an Ezekiel bread or tortilla, fold in some chopped […]

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).

Eggs are also an excellent source of choline, a nutrient critical for brain growth and function. So eat up! These eggy […]

I took all of the superfoods out of my pantry, spread them out on the counter and grabbed a large mixing bowl, measuring […]

Peach Coffee Cake with Pecan Crumble: Healthy and Decadent
