Blueberry Salsa

I’ve seen peach, mango and even nectarine but until the other day I hadn’t even thought to make salsa using blueberries. And why not? Cilantro and blueberries are two of the best foods for cleansing and ’tis the season for these little blue wonders. Toss your berries (you can cut them smaller if desired) with…

Beat the Sweet

The average American now consumes approximately 130 pounds of sugar per year. That’s a whole extra person……  Dietary sugar (sugar that we eat) can be naturally occurring, as in fruit (fructose) or milk (lactose) or added. Added sugars are those we add at the table, as well as sugars and syrups added to foods in…

What Do I Eat?

Over the years I’ve had a lot of clients ask me about my own eating habits.  I’m the first to tell you that what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work the next and part of achieving health is taking the time to learn YOUR unique body and what it needs.  That said, I feel…

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies

A no bake cookie that’s vegan, gluten-free, paleo friendly, organic and tastes ridiculous? It exists. I modified this recipe from the original to cut the sugar down slightly and they are still delicious.   I keep mine in the freezer and grab one here and there when I have a craving for something sweet. Ingredients…

Summer Supper

Keep it simple and refreshing on warm summer nights. Roasted Spaghetti Squash sautéed in olive oil and garlic. Topped with fresh chopped basil, heirloom tomatoes and slivered almonds.

Zucchini Walnut Muffins (Gluten-Free, No Sugar, Paleo Friendly)

I’m a week and a half into playing around with a grain-free diet and I’ve lost six pounds (which wasn’t even intended), have tons of energy and am sleeping soundly through the night for the  first time in years amidst the LA background music of helicopters and sirens.  But I am missing bread and with these…

No Bake Almond Cookie Balls

These little cookie balls are something else.  Anyone who has a tendency to eat chocolate chip dough while you’re attempting to make a batch will fall in love with them as much as I did.  Gluten-free, vegan and naturally sweetened with dates there is nothing but goodness to be had here.  Prep time is minimal…

Simple Kale Salad

  This salad took me less than 10 minutes to make and hits a home run for taste and nutritional value .  I didn’t measure ingredients because it really is one that is best suited to personal taste so the measurements below are rough guesses.  It really doesn’t matter with this – add or subtract…

Afternoon Delight

I’ve gotten my coffee habit down to a half of cup of decaf at most – and not even every day.  But today is a rare grey and cool day in sunny LA and I was craving something to warm up my afternoon.  This little mix I came up with was absolutely perfect, and I…

Coconut Chocolate Kale Chips

I succumbed to an impulse buy while waiting at the register the other day at Whole Foods.  Chocolate Kale chips?  That’s two of my favorite things put together.  I have to say while I was mildly skeptical at first that the taste would be great, I was pleasantly surprised.  However, I didn’t love the price:…
