The Amazing Benefits of Tumeric Milk!

You really need to try this. Now.  I’ve been using Tumeric as an anti-inflammatory pain medication for about 4 years now, as a safer and more effective replacement for over the counter pain medicine. The results are immediate – my pain level starts to disappear before I’m even done my mug and the medicinal benefits…

Chia and Baobab Antioxidant Smoothie

If you  haven’t tried Baobab powder yet,  you really should.  The benefits are nearly instantaneous and amazing. After just one week, wrinkles fade, nails grow stronger and the skin literally softens, glows and retains moisture beautifully. Also, I’m a little late to the chia seed party, but I am so glad I came. Chia seeds…

Nutribullet Fun!

Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything new. Hope everyone out there had a fabulous holiday. 🙂 So… I got a nutribullet pro for Christmas. How fabulous life is now!! It’s easy to clean, takes up hardly any room on the counter and is powerful enough to liquify just about anything… so far. Aside from…

Mexican chicken pizza

So today I cleaned out the fridge. It was a task long overdue, as is a good trip to the grocery store. This recipe is a total slacker trip, but it worked in a pinch and made good use of the foods I had leftover. Ingredients: 1 gluten free pizza crust 1/2 Cup of daiya…

Persimmon and Avocado Salad

Earlier this week, a friend of mine offered me a fresh Persimmon. Now, I grew up on the East coast, where my exposure to fruits and vegetables was a pretty mundane affair, and after childhood I mostly rejected them. Meat, dairy, bread and potatoes were the standard fare. Now I live in California, where a…

Event Horizon – bulletproof style mocha

Oh my goodness. Since going bulletproof with the coffee, I haven’t had a decent mocha in what seems like forever. Then today, I noticed that I was out of coconut oil… The horror! I’ve been housesitting, so I had to find a decent substitute and came across raw cocoa butter. Also, I found this gluten…

Egg White Breakfast Sandwich

I woke up this morning with a craving for a cafe-style bacon, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. This is a surprisingly good substitute, which is meatless, gluten/dairy free and is really yummy! I whipped it up in minutes. It’s an easy breakfast for those days when you’re on the go. Note that I do make it…

GF/Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Scones

As fall comes around, I start craving baked goods for breakfast and at tea time. I’m not much of a baker, but in my previous life I could usually manage a decent scone. Today I felt like trying my hand at a GF/SF/Vegan adaptation, mostly because I had some bananas sitting around that were getting pretty…

Tempeh Reuben

Here’s another dish I tried making the other day that is so easy. All you need is a frying pan, a toaster and a sharp knife. Most of the ingredients are ones that anyone usually has lying around, although I do look forward to trying different kinds of sauerkraut. The Russian dressing probably needs a…
