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.

Put down the $6.00 store-bought sugary pumpkin spiced latte and walk-away! LOL. I find that you have to be very careful if you say anything negative towards this cult classic in the month of October, but the more I examine what is actually in it the less I want to drink it. BUT, I enjoy the taste of a pumpkin latte and want the health benefits of pumpkin.
As the temperature drops our bodies naturally desire warming foods. Sometimes the idea of “comfort foods” in the field of nutrition implies foods that are heavy, high calories, and low in nutrition density. However, our immune system needs good sources of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and digestible proteins to sustain us on those cold days or chilly fall hikes.
Here are 5 of my favorite warming recipes that are perfect to heat and fill your thermos with from sweet oatmeal to savory meals.
What is BBQ without a good dry rub? It’s like serving homemade warm pie without some vanilla bean ice cream or a coconut whipped cream… not happening. When I mention I make my own spice rubs and seasoning to people, it is usually followed by an eye roll and a comment of “… of course you do…”. Haha!
I believe that each person needs to identify what they need for their optimal health and wellness, and once you find that you should do what makes you feel the best. Therefore, I threw the hesitation of making a CBD oil recipe out the window and wanted to provide it for ALL my clients and those that use this plant as part of their health regime. So without further ado here is my Feel Good CDB-Infused Latte.
