Cauliflower is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when I say pizza. Not as a topping and certainly not as the crust. I have to say I was even a little skeptical myself. I highly recommend next time you have a craving for pizza and want a fun spin and a healthier option, I dare you to give this recipe a try. You won’t be disappointed! Ingredients: 1 cup cauliflower couscous (process raw cauliflower florets in food […]
I have to be in a swimsuit in exactly 15 days, 15mins and 3 seconds. I have 5lbs that I would prefer not to take the beach. So cooking favorite meals and dropping the calorie intake is my mission. I am a tortilla girl. The way I grew up, if I was hungry I would heat up a tortilla, add butter + salt and voilá! Insta-snack. Add the cheesy gooey love and, well, it is a recipe of thighs and hips. […]
As I’ve gotten older, it has become clear to me that I’m slowly morphing in to a creature of habit. I know it’s good to know what you like and what you don’t like, but falling into the same routine day after day puts you at risk of not living up to your potential.. It’s important to get outside of your comfort zone every once in a while. For that is when you truly find yourself. Personally, I love a […]

Having a dinner party to meet all dietary needs these days can be quite a challenge. Recently I hosted a dinner party and the menu needed to be vegan and gluten-free. I wanted to make sure my meat eater friends were also happy and full. As I don’t want to edit the guest list, I have been challenging myself to create full flavor dishes that make all palates happy!!

My cousin recommended I watch the documentary Fat Sick and Nearly Dead by Joe Cross. Well it was a game changer. The movie blew my mind and scared the shit out of me!! I ran literally to the store the next day and I bought a juicer. I can say 100% juicing has bettered my health, but what about my Oliver’s (dog) life? Oliver my darling sweet 12 year young golden retriever. Like his mommy, he suffers from tummy issues. […]

Fall is here and transition is upon us from clothing to food. As the days grow shorter, I start to crave hearty meals. I love making big pots of soup and baking breads. I even transition my salads into savory meals with warm nutty flavors. This Happy Hemp corn salad is the perfect meal for a cool fall day.

Certain foods take me back to being a kid…. Cracker Jacks is one of them. Growing up I was a tomboy through and through. Hot wheels over Barbie. Race tracks over dolls. I seem to always have scrapes and cuts all over my knees, mud on my face, hair in knots and a half rubbed off Cracker Jack tattoo on my arm. I wanted to recreate my favorite treat, but jazz up the healthy side and not lose the flavor. I […]
