This Paleo Carrot Soup recipe with spicy ginger and rich coconut milk will warm you to the bone on a snowy day.
During the last year my husband and I were lucky enough to eat at the Post Ranch Inn in Northern California. We had an incredible meal which included a stunning salad as well as carrot ginger soup, and more. I spoke to our server to get an idea of what was in that amazing carrot soup so that I ... read more →

Beat the summer heat with this refreshingly healthy green drink.
I have a new favorite green juice recipe. Although I’ve never done a full on green juice diet or green juice detox, I think that green juice has major benefits and drink it several days every week. I feel so healthy when I get a big bowl of vegetables into my diet, in liquid form, in addition to the veggies I eat all day long.
I found a mojito green juice recipe ... read more →

Celebrate fall with gluten free muffins made from freshly roasted pumpkin and coconut flour, along with a glass of almond milk.
If I had a grain free muffin of the month club November would be pumpkin spice muffins. September would be banana muffins and May would be blueberry muffins. Of course, I have no such club, however, I do love a good healthy muffin.
For those of you who have nut allergies? These grain free Pumpkin Spice Muffins are nut free.

I love a good cool, yet spicy drink in the summer. This Iced Ginger Chai recipe is based on one of my favorite products, Bhakti Chai. It’s heavy on the ginger, cardamom and black pepper which I love.
While I love Bhakti Chai, it does not like me; there is way too much caffeine in this drink for my body type (vata). Even the decaffeinated product contains small amounts of caffeine, so in my version, I use roiboos tea as ... read more →

Spicy ginger and tart lime team up to make a mean mocktail.
I don’t drink alcohol, however, I absolutely love fun, girly drinks in fancy glasses. Hence, this deliciously refreshing, non-alcoholic beverage that I am calling a Ginger Lime Mocktail. I think you could also call this sparkling zesty drink liquid superfood. The ginger is full of anti-oxidants, good for digestion and is also anti-viral and anti-fungal. The lime juice is packed with Vitamin C and bioflavanoids.
Today was our first beautiful ... read more →

I like to serve this delicious Orange Ginger Sauce with the gluten free Chicken Fingers from my book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. It’s sweet enough that my children enjoy it and gingery enough for me –a perfect condiment for the entire family. I also like to dip steamed broccoli into this sauce. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!
With all of the cold weather we’re having here in Colorado, I’ve been relying on ginger quite ... read more →

I’m eating one of these Spicy Power Bars as I type this. I’m slightly obsessed with them. Because they remind me of my past.
About 20 years ago, when I was living in New York City and had just hooked up with my adorable husband, I became very interested in Ayurveda. One of the amazing practitioners that I learned from, Pratima Raichur, had created her own version of a healing tonic, referred to in Ayurvedic circles as chyawanprash. Her product was ... read more →

I’m slightly obsessed with coleslaw these days, especially any coleslaw made with purple cabbage which I find to be delectably sweet and crunchy. I’m always craving a good crunch in my food.
I like to serve this spicy slaw with my Turkey Burgers from The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook or my Grilled Chipotle Orange Chicken.
Spicy Slawprinter friendly
½ head purple cabbage, shredded
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1 carrot, grated
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced

A while back, I posted a recipe for Cabernet Cookies, using Cabernet Grape Seed Flour from AprèsVin. I thought they turned out very well –not too sweet, full of antioxidants and rich, dark chocolate; basically, my family was hooked.
Recently, I was reviewing the comments for that post and saw this one that Jenné from sweetpotatosoul.blogspot.com left. In it she mentioned making some cookies with grapeseed flour, so I hopped over to her blog and to take a peak. Jenne had ... read more →

These cookies were inspired by Dorie Greenspan’s delicious looking Molasses Spice Cookies which I saw in a recent Parade Magazine. I read Parade every weekend (it comes in our local paper), and I especially enjoy checking out the recipes in it and then renovating them for my gluten free higher protein desires.
Spice cookies are perfect for this time of year, a little zing and boost after the holidays and warming as well, which is nice given all of the cold ... read more →

This recipe was inspired by Jaden’s Lemongrass Chicken and Coconut Soup from her fabulous book, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook. I received it in the mail on Friday and played with it all weekend long. It is a captivating book, full of gorgeous pictures (which she styled and shot herself) and easy recipes. I’m in love. Last night, I made this Coconut Chicken Soup, Jaden’s Grilled Fish with Kabayaki Sauce (also from The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook) and some stir fried broccoli.

Soup mania continues. And this dairy free creamy pumpkin coconut ginger soup hits the spot. I decided I had to make something pumpkin today after making pumpkin pies from my gluten free cookbook (The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook) and finding myself with a bunch of leftover roasted pumpkin. Of course soup was the easiest thing to make after making one too many pumpkin pies for family and friends.
We’re having nice weather here, in the 60′s and sunny, however ... read more →

When the cold weather comes I’m in the mood for soup. This gluten free Green Soup with Ginger that I found on Heidi’s website 101cookbooks.com is quite comforting on a chilly day. And I must confess, I often eat it for breakfast to start my day out right.
I’ve probably mangled the work of art that Heidi had on her site, however, I was in the mood for something very soothing so I decided to puree this soup. I also used ... read more →
