coconut paleo oatmeal What did you have for breakfast today?

All-too-often lately I have slid into a no-breakfast cycle, alternating with a sad breakfast without protien (like a banana or two) or one with no variety (eggs, plain).  While the somewhat uninspired breakfast is better than nothing, there is simply no excuse for not eating well in the morning.

Without something delicious to start the day, things are less energetic. And after learning that every day it is optimal to have two to three cups of berries and other dark fruits (here’s more, as THIS way to eat will revolutionize your life!), the imerative need to sneak them into more meals has been a real thing on my mind.

By the way, science has proven that we do eat with our eyes, so its worth not just having breakfast, but also having it look good, too!

Time has been, of course, my biggest excuse for living breakfast-free.  So, I scoured my favorite grain-free blogs to find breakfast ideas… and on one of my favorites I found what became the base concept of this crazy-awesome wild berry coconut oatmeal! It is 100% Paleo, Gluten & Grain Free, SCD legal and totally satisfying!!! Continue Reading…

banana cashew pancakes

What do you do with your browning bananas?

Typically I freeze mine, but in a spree of inspiration, and a desire to have breakfast for dinner, I decided to whip up these 4-ingredient  banana pancakes that are truly stunning! You will not believe that they have no grain, and not even nut flour or coconut flour in them!   Continue Reading…

white beans

This white bean salad is quite a lunch tableau and it takes all of two minutes to make if you have beans already cooked.

If you’ve stayed far away from those beans that are dried in the bulk bins out of intimidation, today we are going to reverse that trend.  These little guys are total food magic- filled with protien, fiber, minerals and super-delicious in a zillion ways! Continue Reading…

blueberry smoothie

I am deeply obsessed with magenta. It may have temporarily been crowded out of my closet by red, but I predict it will make a comeback as my birthday approaches.  Magenta is the color that is not really a color- it is the space between the spectrums of red and blue that our mind imagines as magenta.  For this reason, magenta is somewhat extra magical. It’s a color that is made up yet very powerful, very much like we create every bit of our lives!

That said, a magenta smoothie was born out of necessity…as well as wishful, radiant lust for color!   It can help you change your mind, your mood and your immune system.  Also, it is addictively delicious.  Continue Reading…

vanilla plus cupcakes

I am in a very celebratory mindset  right now- so much to be grateful for!- and as I am dancing around my house in a lime green dress with purple flowers (I have no idea how Alice & Olivia finds this fabric but i can’t get enough!) I just had to make cupcakes.

Vanilla cupcakes. And lots of frosting. But something without grain, sugar or chemicals.  So… I did! And they are glorious enough to share!  Continue Reading…

paleo granola

While my 2/3 of the year Resolution is to start swinning in food styling and killer photography, this crazy awesome grain-free Apple Cinnamon granola has me making a batch of super yogurt (its the strongest-probiotic brilliance of yogurt, how-to is right HERE) and so, it went straight from an Instagram snapshot to the blog. My Canon is charging, and I even have wild lights to capture lots of the majesty of food without grain, gluten or sugar, but in the meantime, this snapshot and instructions will set you on a course toward blissfully stuffed! Continue Reading…

carrot cake smoothie

Seriously, the natural sugar and sunshine in a giant batch of this carrot cake smoothie will open your eyes, fuel a hike, or substitute for a more traditional dessert.  It takes about 30 seconds to make. And, incidentally it is Paleo, SCD and Gluten-Free.

I lack the words to express how delicious this is or how stirringly-amazing the brain-buzz is after a few good sips…!!! Continue Reading…
