    Flourless Chocolate Cake (Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

    What can I say about chocolate cake that hasn't already been said? Maybe I'll mention the high magnesium content, or the importance of a little healthy indulgence every once in awhile. I should also mention that this cake includes nutrient-dense ingredients and leaves out most common food allergens and chemicals, so it's a very good —Read More

    Lemon Tart (Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

    When I was a teenager, I loved to bake. I still do, but I had to go through a transition where I switched to baking gluten-free, dairy-free and sometimes egg-free. It was a challenge and for periods of time I rebelled against baking altogether, frustrated and angry. Now, especially with all of the new ingredients —Read More

    Strawberry Milkshake – Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free

    Strawberries that are picked when they are ripe are so much more flavorful than the ones from the supermarket - and they don't have those chemicals that are used to slow the ripening of the ones shipped across the country.

    Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie

        This is probably my favorite smoothie that I've ever made. It's ridiculously good... I think it is best made in a high-power blender so that all the the orange pithy stuff gets obliterated and the smoothie turns out nice and smooth, but of course you can still make it in a standard blender —Read More

    Getting Unstuck

    Nothing is more frustrating than feeling stuck - stuck in an emotional funk - stuck in a bad relationship - stuck in a health crisis - stuck in a draining career - and on and on. Nothing is going to get you out of that funk but change. Change in the way we look at —Read More

    3 Healthy Alternatives to Chemical Sunscreens

    Once upon a time, I laid out with my friends in my backyard and slathered baby oil all over myself to get a glowing tan. Say what?!! Yep, that was me in my teens. Of course we all know better now. Or, do we? More than 2 million Americans develop skin cancer each year (NCI, —Read More

    How to Ferment Your Veggies & a Giveaway

    Before refrigeration or even ice, traditional people preserved their food. They found that if they added salt or whey, their bounties from the fields would last for extended periods of time. The diets of every traditional society have included some kind of fermented food. Think kimchi in Asia, sauerkraut in Europe and pickles and relishes —Read More

    Gingery Butternut Carrot Soup (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo)

    Here is one of my favorite vegetables: Butternut squash. Unfortunately, it's difficult to chop without a very large, and very sharp, knife. But you can always buy it pre-peeled and chopped so you don't have to deal with it. This past week I taught a healthy cooking class at The Happy Cook in Charlottesville, Virginia. One —Read More
