I finally got around to making a recipe for whole grain spelt flour crackers this weekend and now I’m trying to figure out why I waited so long! They are delicious and really not hard at all, even though the flour is soaked for extra nutritional benefits. The recipe is from Nourished Kitchen and while […]

Since we’re getting close to that wonderful time of year for enjoying fresh herbs, I wanted to share my favorite pesto recipe. It’s very simple and amazingly delicious. In fact, it’s so tasty that I’ve been caught grating some parmigiano reggiano and digging in with whole wheat pita bread instead of saving it for a […]

Sweet potatoes are pretty much my new favorite food. They make absolutely delicious fries and even offer some serious nutrition including Vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and beta-carotene (as much as carrots!). This recipe comes from Food Network and is super easy to make. I had purchased a big organic sweet potato from my local health […]

A long while back, I had posted a recipe for stevia banana bread, but my mom recently gave me a recipe which I think is even better (and keeps a little longer) and the sweetener is pure maple syrup. She modified the ingredients slightly from a cookbook, which I will show below, but I’ll have […]

Even though it’s still freezing outside, I am somehow hooked on making ice cold smoothies. While I wish I could enjoy them on a beach chair under some palm trees, I’ll have to take what I can get which is the couch, a blanket, and looking out into the snow. Oh well, guess I can […]

There is no white sugar or white flour in the recipe proving that you don’t need to use these super-processed ingredients to have a tasty and hearty muffin. They were extra delicious fresh […]

I came across a delicious looking peanut butter/chocolate shake recipe online and decided that a healthier (still delicious version) must exist. I surfed the web and came across a recipe for peanut butter smoothies that used milk and bananas along with carob powder instead of chocolate syrup and ice cream. I made this version, but […]
