It's really hard to find healthy store bought jams & jellies. Like, really hard. They've all got fillers and loads of added sugar. Honestly, I sometimes even question the integrity of the fruit used. That being said, I'm a jam girl. I love some jelly spread on my pancakes, swirled into a cake, or sandwiched between some peanut butter & bread. I can make healthy versions of all those other things, but I struggled with the jam... until now!Read More
Did I ever tell you guys I'm not that into beans? Well, this recipe just doesn't count because I could eat this stuff all day long. It's the perfect white bean dip that you've all been looking for (you just might not have realized it yet). It's reminiscent of hummus, perfectly thick & creamy with hints of tangy lemon and a mild bite of garlic.Read More
As you guys can probably tell, I'm all about the healthy fats, especially at snack time! That's why one of my favorite snacks is smooth & creamy almond butter. It's got healthy Omega-3's and toasted nutty flavor in an easily spreadable form... perfect. You can get some pretty good almond butter in the stores, but a lot of them have unnecessary added ingredients like cane sugar or are loaded with salt. Good news is, almond butter is so easy to make right at home as long as you've got almonds, a food processor, and a little bit of time.Read More
Pesto is a really great tool. It can take on many forms and flavors, be nutty and fresh, have a tang or a kick. Pesto can be mixed into pasta, blanket a pizza, or smother chicken & fish. It can be tweaked and improvised, but best of all it can be a great way to use up stuff you've got lying around the kitchen. That was the idea with this pesto.Read More
Are you a mayo lover? Do you slather that stuff on everything?
Or maybe you despise mayo with a deep-seated fiery passion? The mere thought of the stuff elicits icky vibes.
