Before summer ends I thought I would share one of my favorite summertime activities... berry picking! Growing up in the South there was never a shortage of blueberry bushes or blackberry vines. In the summers it was always hard going home with a substantial amount of berries because we would end up eating them right off the bush.Read More
Summertime = traveling so let me take you to southern France, the home of the socca bread. While strolling through the markets in France, you will find socca (healthier than pancakes) everywhere. Socca is made with 4 simple ingredients: chickpea flour, water, salt, and olive oil. As you can see, socca is free from gluten, dairy, and grain while being high in fiber and protein.
Chickpea flour is simply grounded chickpeas and is minimally processed. You can purchase chickpea flour or make your own! If you are making your own chickpea flour, you can boost the nutritional value by using sprouted chickpeas! Like other beans and legumes, soaking and sprouting makes them easier to digest.Read More
After finding out that I was sensitive to gluten, my love for rice krispie treats grew. I know that sounds bad and unhealthy, but hey, at the time, there weren’t too many gluten-free options when it came to desserts!
But within a year of only eating rice krispie treats, I felt like I was done for life. 5 years later, that’s all I crave! So, without further ado, I have made for you a healthier rice krispie treat -- but with a spin.Read More
Growing up as a kid, we didn’t eat sweet potatoes often. The few times we did, it was usually in the form of sweet potato casseroles or sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving. Now that I’m older, I can’t get enough of them.
That’s why, regardless of the weather, I wanted to create a super cozy and comforting sweet potato muffin made with chocolate chips (because why not!?) and chai spice!
If you can’t tell from my Instagram, I use this chai spice seasoning on almost everything. Before diving into this muffin recipe, you should totally whip up this amazing chai spice seasoning if you haven’t done so already, then we can get to cooking!Read More
I tried so hard not to create a copycat PF Chang’s lettuce wrap recipe, but in the end, I have done exactly that. I know, sounds cliche and basic, but I can’t hide the truth.
This recipe has a total of just three easy steps and takes less than 30 minutes to make.
Step 1: Brown the ground chicken
Step 2: Prepare a marinade to drizzle over browned chicken and veggies.
Step 3: Make the most delicious almond butter sauce known to man.
If you are concerned with your sodium intake, I have a great alternative -- I use liquid aminos. If you are not familiar with liquid aminos, it’s a vegetable protein from soybeans.Read More
