Barley With Sundried Tomatoes & Pine Nuts + Good Carbs vs. Bad Carbs

Barley With Sundried Tomatoes & Pine Nuts + Good Carbs vs. Bad Carbs

This barley recipe is gonna load your body up with healthy, glorious carbohydrates. Yes, I said carbs…and just like healthy fats have lots of scientific studies linking them to various health benefits…so do complex carbohydrates (aka the good carbs). Low carb diets like Keto, Bulletproof, and Adkins are rapidly gaining popularity. And I’m not saying […]

Vanilla Protein Sweet Potato Freezer Fudge (Keto, Paleo, Vegan)

Vanilla Protein Sweet Potato Freezer Fudge (Keto, Paleo, Vegan)

It amazes me how versatile the ole sweet potato can be. Even better, combine it with vanilla…Yes! 🙂 The more I experiment, the more I can’t help thinking to myself, “Why didn’t I think of doing this years ago?!” Pretty much anything pumpkin can go in—so can a sweet potato. And nowadays I seem to […]

Easy Paleo Broccoli Salad + My Top Tip For Choosing The Best Mayo

Easy Paleo Broccoli Salad + My Top Tip For Choosing The Best Mayo

I absolutely love broccoli and one of my fave things is a homemade broccoli salad. You know, the kinda side dish that’s usually displayed on the table during the holidays or some other special occasion, and fully loaded with some not-so-healthy ingredients. One of the main ingredients that gives it that amazing flavor is mayo…afterall, […]

Simple Paleo Honey Mustard Dressing + Dipping Sauce

Simple Paleo Honey Mustard Dressing + Dipping Sauce

I love dressings and dipping sauces and this Paleo Honey Mustard one is super easy and delicious. The problem with so many processed condiments is the horrible ingredients, like high fructose corn syrup with nasty added sugars and GMOs. Ugh. Nowadays there are some healthy options on the store shelves, but sometimes I just don’t […]

The Best Crispy Baked Chicken Strips (DASH Diet Friendly)

The Best Crispy Baked Chicken Strips (DASH Diet Friendly)

This is hands down one of my favorite “not fried” chicken recipes. It’s baked but it still has that moist and crispy deliciousness that you get from good fried chicken—without all that extra grease. The secret to keeping the moisture locked in and getting that extra crispy exterior is –> Mayo and Cereal. But to […]

OMG I am loving these Banana Bread Sweet Potato Protein Bars for an easy and quick breakfast in the morning! It’s Paleo, Mediterranean Zone, & DASH diet friendly and Gluten Free.

Simple Mediterranean Paleo Sumac Salad With Shrimp

Simple Mediterranean Paleo Sumac Salad With Shrimp

Back in nutrition school, I experimented with dozens of different diets while studying over 100 of them (some diets I didn’t try out because I just knew they weren’t for me—for example, anything with processed food was an automatic no go). After all that exploring, I discovered that what works best for my body was […]

Refreshing Aloe Green Juice

Refreshing Aloe Green Juice

Aloe has so many wonderful health benefits (from digestive repair to anti-aging) so I snuck a chunk in my green juice today. I’ve been juicing for a couple years now—and I LOVE it! It makes me feel so good! When I first started, I had to add in various fruit—oftentimes green apples—to add enough sweetness […]
