Recipes

Live, whole, unprocessed foods have a great power over our overall health and wellness. Our bodies know how to utilize the live enzymes, vitamins and nutrient density of these foods to balance, restore and reclaim our energy and vitality. All my recipe development takes this into consideration and incorporates foods that nourish the body as a whole for physical, mental and emotional well-being. My recipes primarily use the power of plant-based ingredients. When animal products are used, they are local, organic, free-range and/or grass-fed and I provide vegan substitutions for when they are used. I use no refined or processed foods and only natural sugars are used in moderation. There is no one perfect diet. Each person is biochemically unique; therefore, your diet needs differ from the next person. In my recipe index, you will find choices to meet the needs of many lifestyles such as gluten-free, plant-based, raw, vegan, vegetarian, paleo, dairy-free, weight wise and heart healthy dishes.

Instapot No-Boil Healthy Probiotic Yogurt

So I finally caved and bought an Instapot. Now my hesitation has been the high pressure and high heat we know from food science destroys delicate minerals, enzymes, and vitamins. So I was really hesitant to purchase one since I felt my slow-cooker was able to produce the same convenience but gave me control over the slower temperatures to keep my nutritional value higher. However, more and more nutritional clients kept asking me for Instapot recipes, so I figured I better break down and buy one to meet the needs of my clients and learn more about it.

5 Killer Keto No-Bake Fat-Bomb Recipes

‘Fat Bombs’ and weight loss may not sound like they belong together in the same sentence but they actually do. The 1980’s-1990’s diet industry marketing did a great job of placing fear in the hearts of everyone where fat is concerned. The old idea that “fat makes you fat”, has been a hard one to shake off for many people. You can still see “low-fat” products lining the grocery store even though we know now that fats are essential for hormone balance, brain health, energy, and metabolism. Now, the catch is that NOT all fats are created equal and higher fat diets work best as it relates to weight-loss goals when used strategically in a low carb diet.

Simple Keto Meal Prep Menu

Many of my nutrition clients come to me and ask for Keto meal plans and programs to align with their goals. At first, my temptation was to decline as the default in my head was when I heard “Keto”, I just heard “Atkins” and longterm “heart disease”. However, one thing I have learned in the field of nutrition is that the “It” diet is always evolving and as a nutrition & wellness lifestyle consultant it is my job to look beyond the trendy diet and search for good ‘food science’ that supports it.

Grain & Nut-Free Granola (paleo, keto, allergy friendly)

Granola. There is something so satisfying and versatile about a good granola mixture. Granola can be a healthy breakfast option in a bowl with milk and fruit, sprinkled on top of greek yogurt, or even as a baked topping on your breakfast muffins. Granola can also be a high protein, high energy snack that you can take on a hike with you or as a 3 pm snack. Granola can even elevate your dessert by adding a crunchy topping to your roasted stone-fruit and whipped cream. Clearly, I am a fan of yogurt.

Healthy 4 Ingredient Tuna Salad Recipe

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best kinda recipes. I had forgotten about Tuna Salad for years as my association with it was this thick salad that had a higher ratio of Mayonaise to Tuna as a kid that I did not like to eat. However, working with some food insecurity groups I rediscovered canned Tuna as an affordable non-perishable protein option and began playing around ways to “healthify it”.
