5 Food Mistakes I No Longer Make

These 5 food products used to be a regular part of my diet, but I gave them the boot. What do you think happened next? Spoiler alert: I'm 20 pounds lighter, but more on that later. A favorite saying in the health and wellness community is "know better, do better." I think that pretty much sums it up. Obviously most of us want to be healthy and to make better choices, but sometimes we don't know where to start, or worse, we don't know what we don't know. So for those of you who are looking to make some small (and easy!) dietary changes, this post is for you. I hope it helps you reach your goals, or at least makes you think a little harder about what makes it into that grocery cart. ...more

3-Ingredient Paleo Apple Pancakes

Whether your eating paleo, diving into keto or just trying to oomph up your intake of plant-based versus processed noshes, there is one undeniable truth: at some point, you will wish you could motorboat a pile of pancakes. A big, glorious pile of soft and floury flapjacks, patted high with butter and drizzled with pure golden maple syrup. Alas, science tells us those pancakes are doing more ill for our bodies than they are benefitting our tastebuds ....more

pistachio, lime & zucchini loaf

If you don’t really ‘do’ cakes (like me!) give a loaf cake a go – they’re just so easy. The Pistachios, lime and zucchini in this one are a match made in heaven, I reckon, and the cream cheese frosting is just the ‘icing on the cake’ (or the frosting on the loaf, more like).
