Creamy Millet Porridge

Growing up, I was never too crazy about oatmeal and porridge. Perhaps because it was always made quite bland and ended up being weirdly thick and slimy. Only recently has my love for breakfast propelled me to experiment with all different kinds of recipes. This millet porridge is a wonderful option, not only because it has a rich and creamy consistency, but because it is made of an ancient grain that holds a host of […]

Warm Butternut Squash Breakfast Bowl with Sliced Pear, Yogurt, and Granola

Paleo Spiced Pumpkin Bread – Hold the Sugar

You may be surprised to hear this recipe has no sugar. Nope, not even the “natural” sugar alternatives like maple syrup or honey or that present in fruit. I did this, one because sugar is highly inflammatory to the body, even when consumed in fruit (though that is better, it is still not ideal), and two because why not? In a culture where sugar is snuck into almost every item you find on the shelves […]

Anti-inflammatory Matcha Chia Pudding

Inflammation in the body can show up in so many different ways, and for many different reasons. Let’s face it, we are all mildly inflamed, unless we eat an immaculate diet. Anyone who drinks coffee, alcohol, or juice/soda high in sugar, or eats high-sugar fruit, gluten, grains, anything fried, poor quality dairy, or meats in excess will probably have some form of inflammation in their body because all those foods are inflammatory. The more the […]

Blueberry Overnight Oats with Yogurt and Almond Butter

I recently went shopping at my local market only to find these gorgeous blueberries that were local AND organic. There was not even a question in my mind before I grabbed two and headed to the checkout. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and cherries are the seasonal fruits where I live these days, and I’m loving every last bite. Used for on top yogurt, in smoothies, or just snacking throughout the day, I seem to be eating […]

Homemade Almond Milk

Why is it that we would rather get in our car, drive to the store, and buy pre-packaged and pre-made foods instead of making them at home? Since when have we decided time and convenience is more important than our health? Because let’s face it, we don’t make things at home because it takes too much time, and we just don’t feel like it. We have become lazy. We have lost the connection of cooking, […]

Raspberry Brekkie Bowl with Chia Pudding

Breakfast (or brekkie as some say) is undoubtedly my favorite part of the day. It always has been with the stillness that accompanies the mornings, but now with the new found love for chia pudding and the unlimited possibilities of breakfast bowls, I am really in love. Chia pudding is something else entirely. It is not a porridge or oatmeal, and does not resemble yogurt quite like you’d think. The combination of chia seeds and […]

Grounding Parsnip Root Hash

I’ve been feeling a little flighty lately. You know when you are not really “here”, but off thinking about other things? Wondering what the future has in store; worrying about the past; planning too much or not enough. This feeling of being all over the place instead of right here and now tends to leave me feeling thin and washed out, ungrateful and not present. I have so many plans and ideas about what I […]
