Homemade GF Granola

I attempted to make homemade granola once before. I literally set off the smoke detector. And because we have The Nest, it texted a message to my husband at work that there was “smoke detected in the kitchen.” Thanks for telling on me, Nest. Today I was inspired to try making my own granola again

I-Wish-These-Were-Samoas Cookies

I love me some cookies. And with the infiltration of Girl Scout cookies all over my social media feeds and outside my stores, I am craving Samoas like nobody’s business this week. I appreciate that their organization has forayed into gluten-free offerings with their new Toffee-Tastic and Trios, but for the love of all things chocolate,

Avocado Bowls

Lazy snack idea: fill the hole of half an avocado with salsa. Eat with a fork or spoon. Nature’s bowl.

Top 5 Ways to Re-Set Your Body

Last week I was glutened. I have never experienced such severe pains, short of natural childbirth. I contemplated going to the hospital before somehow falling asleep. I wasn’t going to point fingers at the food that caused this, but honestly, I don’t see how it was anything else. Luna Lemon Zest bars are now being

3 Years of Gluten-Free Living

I just realized this week marks my 3 year anniversary of being gluten-free but, more importantly, 3 years of being completely off drugs for ADHD. I can’t believe it has been that long but I have never felt better! There are still days where it’s rough—mainly at holidays and parties—but the pain and discomfort I feel

Pumpkin Quinoa

Quinoa is a fantastic canvas for almost everything in your spice cabinet and produce haul. I have a lot of fun throwing in a variety of ingredients on a whim and tonight was no different. I’ve had this can of Trader Joe’s organic pumpkin taking up precious cabinet space for months and I finally was

Lemon Zest

Good morning! The secret to an invigorating bowl of sunshine is lemon zest! Plain Greek yogurt, banana, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and chia seeds. Something about the lemon just multiplies the freshness. Have a kickass Thursday!!

Frozen PB Banana Sandwiches

Amazing: Peanut butter banana “sandwiches” Life Changing: Frozen peanut butter banana sandwiches! Easy, refreshing treat on hot summer days. Kid-approved for taste, and mommy-approved for no sugar, no dyes, no high fructose corn syrup, and no chemicals that are the main ingredients of store-bought popsicles. Cut banana length-wise and then into thirds. Coat inside with

Overnight Oats

I wasn’t going to bother posting overnight oats on my blog since I figured so many others have before me, and it’s by no means my own recipe or creation. However, when I posted a photo of it on my Instagram last week, I received so many great questions and comments about this tasty breakfast, I realized

Brinner Bowls

I just made THE most delicious dinner I have arguably ever made. I went so rogue on the original recipe that I’ve struggled to come up with a name for it, but my husband recommended “Mishmash Kickass” or more specifically, “Awesome. Just Call It Awesome.” I have decided to go with the elusive “Brinner Bowl” because it’s

Real Fast Food

Maybe it’s because I just drove up to New Hampshire and back this past weekend, but I feel so inspired recently to make it my personal mission to prove the fastest food is healthy food. It won’t be elaborate recipes obviously, but I guarantee it will be more satisfying than the crap they sell at

Smoothie Popsicles

Anyone else the parent of a super picky child? It’s frustrating for parents and children, and the amount of food that’s wasted on a daily basis is embarrassing. If you’ve ever wondered if a child can subsist on Goldfish crackers alone, the answer is yes. There’s many a day that we’re left wondering how we

Grain-free, Sugar-free Protein Pancakes

I’ve been fiddling around with protein pancakes for well over a year now. I’ve successfully made my Grainless Banana Pancakes but I’ve grown tired of their flavor, as well as their stickiness. Most people recommend using protein powder as an added “flour” but we only ever keep chocolate protein powder in the house, and it’s not very often I

Zucchini Pizza Gondolas

This recipe is part of my Produce For Kids series to support the Get Healthy, Give Hope campaign (learn more here), this recipe primarily features a healthy vegetable dressed up in a way your kids won’t be able to refuse. Pizza, particularly from Manco & Manco’s (previously Mack & Manco’s) down the Jersey shore, is probably the

Eat Your Smoothie

In the midst of the smoothie craze, I’m going to openly admit that I prefer eating the ingredients of my smoothie whole, instead of blending them up. I know there are incredible benefits to finely pureeing fruits, veggies, and seeds so the superpowers of their nutrients are more readily absorbed, but sometimes it just feels

Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Pudding

This post feels like I’m cheating. This recipe for pudding is identical to my No-Bake Vegan GF Brownies but with more water. I came upon this discovery completely by accident but for once mommy brain totally worked in my favor!! In pudding form, this dessert is so decadent and feels indulgent, but it’s completely clean

Awesome Sauce Applesauce

I’ve been introducing solids to my 5 month old for the past few weeks. We started with avocado, and he has since successfully eaten bananas, sweet potatoes, and now this delicious applesauce. My first son got pre-packaged baby food from the grocery store because I was working 60 hours a week and any free moment

Crock-Pot Chicken Fajita Bowls

Anyone else ever throw a bunch of ingredients into their Crock-pot without any foundation or inspiration of a real recipe, cross their fingers, and hope for the best? It’s a lot of fun and about as wild as I get these days! Today was such a beautiful Spring day! We had a lovely, though jam-packed, morning

Noodles + Zucchini = Zoodles!

My favorite obsession lately are zoodles! What are those? Naturally gluten-free, grain-free “pasta” made from zucchini. Noodles + zucchini = zoodles! Back in February, one of my birthday gifts was a spiraler. This awesome little contraption is basically an enormous pencil sharpener that turns zucchini, summer squash, carrots, potatoes, and other oblong-shaped vegetables into thin,
