Zucchini Pizza Crust

Hi friends! When it comes to dinner on a Friday, I always end up wanting pizza! It’s such a fun laid back meal and I love that you can customize homemade pizza however you want. In a continued effort to increase my veggie consumption I typically make a zucchini pizza crust for our Friday pizza

Turmeric Meatloaf

Hi Friends! Growing up I never really liked meatloaf. I don’t know when that changed but now as an adult I love it! I find meatloaf to be comforting. Just the word conjures up images of a 1950’s Donna Reed type housewife in her apron, and since becoming a stay at home mom, I guess

4 Ingredient Cinnamon Banana Pancakes

Hi friends! This is a fast, easy recipe that’s great for a little snack or to add to your weekend brunch menu. Now, these little pancakes don’t have the fluff or rise of traditional pancakes, so I hesitate to even call them that. If you’re looking for a fluffy pancake recipe…this isn’t it! These are

Broccoli Dip (Broccomole)

Hi friends! Like most people, I’m a huge fan of guacamole! Aside from all the wonderful health benefits of avocado, it just tastes good! In my opinion there’s just not much better than a big bowl of guac! Since we’re on a budget, you can imagine my dismay when over the past few weeks the

Sweetened Almond Milk

Hi friends! Have you ever had store-bought almond milk? Have you ever glanced at the ingredients in that store-bought almond milk? It’s not pretty! The rule of thumb I try to follow is that if I can’t pronounce the ingredient and/or it’s not something I would typically find in my kitchen, I don’t eat it.

Mint Pea Soup

I know it’s the middle of summer, so posting a soup recipe might seem a bit silly but this one is just too good not to post! For me, summer in Florida means hibernating inside with the A/C cranked! Then when those afternoon/evening thunderstorms come rolling in I always end up craving something comforting, and

Paleo Lemon Tart

Hi Friends! I don’t know if anyone else is a fan of The Great British Baking Show, but I’m obsessed. I stumbled upon it on Netflix one night and now I can’t get enough of their British accents, affinity for tea or the delicious looking baked goods they make. They’re genuinely nice to each other

Paleo Lemon Curd

I don’t know about you but summer makes me crave food and drinks that leave me saying “Ahhhhh!”. I just want refreshing! Well, this lemon curd is just that. It’s not too sweet and it leaves you with a bit of a puckered mouth, which is exactly what I want! The lemon curd is sooooo

True confession…I despise touching raw chicken. Like REALLY, REALLY despise it! Beef and seafood don’t bother me at all, but

Coconut Flour Vanilla Mug Cake

I’ve always had a huge sweet tooth, so giving up sweets when I started on this new dietary lifestyle a few years ago was very difficult! Even now I have a tendency to eat too many “healthy” sweets and baked goods. That’s why I love the idea of a mug cake. It satisfies my need
