Orange Chocolate Paleo Cakies (Egg-free)

A while back I was talking with my friend, and fellow health coach, Chloe Lauer of Zest for Life Today. We were talking about coconut flour recipes and I was commenting how every recipe I saw had eggs in it. Unfortunately for me, I have an egg sensitivity. So I usually make my baked goods […]

Beef Tajine (Slow Cooker Recipe)

I was at Whole Foods recently doing my monthly meat shopping trip. I generally buy a lot of meat at once and freeze it for convenience. I usually get my produce at the farmer’s market, so then I just have to pick up all the other small items I need at my local store once […]

Gluten-free Lasagna with Italian Sausage and Basil Cashew Cheese

I made this delicious lasagna the other night kind of on a whim. I had been thinking about making a lasagna with a fresh tomato sauce, gluten-free noodles, and substituting the cheese for cashew cheese. I got home from a friend’s book signing event on Tuesday and decided I would see if I could throw […]

Slow Cooked Tomatillo Chicken Tacos

Do you have a slow cooker? If your answer to this question is “no”, then drop what you are doing and get to your local Walgreens, hardware store, or Target. My slow cooker was less than $30 and works like a champ. This nifty little machine is such a time saver, you won’t understand how […]
