Recipes

Integrating simple whole foods into our daily lives can have a powerful impact on our overall health and wellness. 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 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 bar for ease.
From my kitchen to yours, Xo Jo
