My recipes are built with simple, whole, inclusive, and uncomplicated nutrition principles in mind.
This means I do my best to ensure that my recipes offer options for particular ingredients to be inclusive of a variety of eating styles (i.e. use almond flour versus wheat flour for those with gluten allergies) and to be mindful of different economic demographics (i.e. use cacao or cocoa, fresh or frozen fruit based on what fits your budget and you have access too).
Integrating simple whole foods into our daily lives can have a powerful impact on our overall physical and mental well-being. Therefore, my recipes primarily use whole foods, are family-friendly, and use ingredients you can get at your local grocery store.
My approach is to never label foods as “good” or “bad”. There is no one perfect diet. To respect the diversity of diets, you will find swaps and options within many of the recipes. In my recipe index, you will find choices to meet the needs of many lifestyles such as gluten-free, plant-based, raw, vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free, and natural sugar-free options for inclusive recipes to respect the diversity and uniqueness of each person’s food story.
You will find simple & delicious recipes organized by category below or you can search recipes by ingredients or diet preferences (i.e. gluten-free) using the search option in the top right-hand corner of the navigation bar for ease.
