Asian Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

I had the best lunch last week at a local Thai place that serves incredibly flavorful food. It was one of those meals that you just keep thinking about, and I knew I was going to need to recreate what I had to share with you too. So the thinking about lunch turned into an obsession, and I cancelled the ...

Molasses Ginger Cookie Energy Bites

My favorite cookie of all time is my Grandpa's Molasses Ginger Cookies which I made into a gluten free version last year. They're highly addictive, and so good that I don't make them too often because I lack a little thing called 'willpower'! So I thought it might be fun to take the same flavors of this classic cookie, and ...

Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites

Energy bites are one of my favorite things to have around because they're awesome as a snack on a mountain top in Glacier National Park. Or they're equally good in the car on the way from one appointment to another when I just don't think I can make it until dinner time. On one of my recent grocery trips, I ...

Pineapple Orange Banana Green Smoothie

It's been a little while since I've come up with a green smoothie recipe. So long in fact that I went back into the archives to see, and it turns out that the last time I posted a green smoothie was in February of this year! Of course there's always a reason behind everything, and in this case there's several. ...

Samosa Style Twice Baked Potatoes

I've had the idea for this recipe floating around in my head for a little while now, but somehow I've just never gotten around to making it. That's probably because Indian cuisine isn't exactly my forte by any means. I absolutely love every Indian dish I've ever tried, but apart from Butter Chicken, I rarely make it at home. Most ...

Chunky Monkey Smoothie Bowls

You want to know the secret for really beautiful smoothie bowls? The answer is so simple - just be messy! I don't know why I've always tried to arrange perfect rows or fruit, or make the toppings look just right, (maybe it's all those pretty pictures on Instagram or something). But these smoothie bowls are the first ones I haven't ...

No Bake Banana Cream Pie

This morning started off just like any other regular work day in the country. We got up in the dark, made scrambled eggs and coffee before my husband headed off to work just before sunrise. However this morning he got a serious surprise on the way out to his truck. I had just locked the door behind him and headed ...

Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Smoothie

This is my new favorite breakfast on the go! It's packed with protein (15g per serving), really quick to make, and can be made year round with either fresh or frozen berries. It doesn't hurt that there's peanut butter in there either, which makes everything so tasty. To be technically accurate, it's actually peanut butter powder which is really high in ...

Avocado Zucchini Hummus

Did you know you can make hummus out of zucchini instead of beans? I know I would've never thought of this awesome idea in a million years, but open any raw foods cookbook, and you will find all sorts of good ideas like this. Usually raw foods also tend to be very low in fat, so you'll find my recipe ...
