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.
