6 Easy Ways to Encourage Family to Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

6 Easy Ways to Get Your Partner to Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

In many ways I feel like I was born to write this post. Because, to put it mildly, my boyfriend is not friends with too many vegetables. Corn, carrots, potatoes, and raw cauliflower (!) and that’s about it! Green vegetables? Not a chance. So in the 5+ years we’ve been together, I’ve come up with […]

Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls (gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, vegan)

Pumpkin Pie Energy Balls

It’s very uncommon for me to eat, and even rarer for me to post on this blog, a recipe that calls for ingredients so out of season as pumpkin.

This quintessential summer bevvy is a bit like me: refreshing, tart and spicy. Okay, probably more tart than anything! There’s nothing that seems to quench the thirst better than lemonade on a hot summer day, am I right? Except maybe a frosty cold b-e-e-r, but we’ll save that for another day. I’ve had homemade lemonade […]

Do you ever have mornings when you just don’t have the time or energy to make a big breakfast? Of course you do. I know I do! Which is why I wrote a cookbook called 10+ Breakfasts You Can Make in 10 Minutes or Less. This cookbook is perfect for people like me who love […]

Inside Out Peppermint Cups (no added sugar, gluten-free, vegan)

Inside Out Peppermint Cups (vegan, gluten free)

Many moons ago, when I was in high school, I dated a boy who worked at a local movie theatre. Between the Friday night shows, the cheap afternoon matinees and the special “employee exclusive” previews, it’s safe to say I spent a lot of time watching movies. It’s also safe to say I spent a […]
