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 alternative that has more of a texture than rolled oats. This recipe was created after having leftover millet from dinner one night. I saw a […]

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

**Update as of 8/31/2022: I no longer recommend drinking nut milks, and instead fully endorse raw milk. I believe animal milks are highly nutritious and have been part of our diets forever. If you insist on drinking nut milks for whatever reason, at the very least, make it yourself! 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 […]

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 […]

Paleo Apple Almond Bread

This has been my favorite bread recipe yet; I think I can safely say I have mastered it. The basic ingredients stay the same while I play with spices and various wet ingredients. In the summer use shredded zucchini. In the fall, use pumpkin, sweet potato, or squash. Any other time you can use homemade applesauce (which is so far my favorite addition), or banana. Add your choice of nuts and seeds, dried fruit, or […]

Green Peas, Spinach, and Garlic with an Over-Easy Egg

Organic frozen peas are one of those staples you should always keep in your freezer (if you like peas, that is) because they are so easy to make and add a substantial amount of vegetable to your day. I always make mine with tons of garlic, sometimes spinach, and grass-fed butter. Served with an over-easy egg, and this combo is one of my favorite go-to breakfasts. Growing up we rarely ate peas. And if we […]
