Asian Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

So I’ve just moved to the most beautiful little town. Hood River, Oregon is just 45 minutes East of Portland nestled right along the Columbia River. I can see Washington from my front porch! I also have a lovely view of Mt. Adams (Washington) and if I run just down the street a bit I…

Sun-dried Tomato and Spinach Quiche (Nut-Free Option)

Don’t forget that you can win raw honey for one more week!    I’m a huge fan of make-ahead breakfast. Preferably something a little fancy, and full of flavor, protein and healthy fats. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day…so even if its on the go, I want it to be good. I often make…

Easy Homemade Almond Milk

When I first cut Coffee Mate out of my life, I used full fat coconut milk or the occasional half and half in my coffee. It’s pretty good…but the minute I realized how easy homemade almond milk is to make (and then tried it), I can’t go back. I’ll splurge on half and half when…

10 Tips for Surviving Grad School (Without a Microwave)

Okay, so truth is…I do have a microwave. But it’s never used for cooking a meal, mostly just for reheating my coffee. Or warming up some coconut butter. Eating well is so crucial to staying healthy. Making a habit of microwave meals or grabbing fast food are great ways to make yourself tired or sick, or…

What I’m Loving Now (January)

I may not be loving writing comprehensive exams, but I’m loving being in my last semester of grad school and I’m loving these things… RxBars I talked a little about these on my Facebook page. I’m in love with these. They are a less sweet, more substantial (higher protein) version of the Larabar — with whole ingredients,…

A Different Kind of Fish and Chips and a Giveaway

This post also could have been titled: Double-dipped Coconut Fish Nuggets and Eggplant Fries I know, fish nuggets and eggplant fries don’t sound like the most delectable dinner you’ve ever had, but I promise this twist on traditional fish and chips is delicious! The best part? You can win the coconut I used as the coating for…

Paleo Purple Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Say that three times fast! I’m not sure what is so magical about little potato dumplings. Oh, but they are! I’ve never been a fan of pasta. Well except for my entire childhood, but it had to be bright orange and come from a blue box. I’ve been wanting to try Paleo gnocchi for awhile…

Trust Without Borders

It’s here. 2014. I would say I’ve been waiting for this year for forever, but that wouldn’t be true. Only about 3 years. In just 126 days I will graduate with my Masters degree (Lord willing I pass my comprehensive exams that just arrived in my inbox). And then there’s moving (a few times), starting a…

Acorn Squash Breakfast Scramble

This is Fall in a meal. Y’all, I love this breakfast. I loved it even more when I found out that acorn squash contains vitamin A, niacin, folate, thiamine and vitamin B-6 AND at least 20% of your daily dose of Vitamin C in one serving! It’s also a great source of potassium, magnesium and…
