Anyone else have a lot of memories eating Nutella as a child?  I do!  And I’m so excited about this “healthier” gluten free recipe for Nutella muffins. With healthier swaps, such as almond milk, coconut oil, gluten free flour, and maple syrup instead of sugar, this is sure to be a crowd pleaser! I had such a great time making this recipe last weekend. My … Read More Double Chocolate Nutella Muffins (Gluten Free)


Salad for Breakfast

I’ve been drinking a lot of home-made chai lattes lately because I’ve been trying to limit my coffee intake.  Coffee can increase my anxiety because of the caffeine.  I think I feel better when I start my day with tea.  I am able to hyper-focus on what needs to get done, rather than being stuck in my thoughts. I’m a big fan of what … Read More Salad for Breakfast

5 Steps you can take TODAY to end your perfectionism (#4 is stupid easy)

1. Quit all or nothing thinking & add the word “yet” to the end of your black and white statements This has probably been the biggest change that I have made in recent years.  All or nothing thinking (or black and white thinking) is the act of using exaggerative terms to describe occurrences, including negative self talk.  For example, “I am always awkward and … Read More 5 Steps you can take TODAY to end your perfectionism (#4 is stupid easy)

Gluten Free Zucchini Bread Pudding

Zucchini bread is grandma’s classic. My mom says that stuffing breads with vegetables was considered virtually the same as a side of vegetables growing up. While the thought of that makes me shiver, this is definitely a healthy alternative to straight up bread.   I typically sweeten my baked goods with applesauce and maple syrup. I’ve made this recipe with both maple syrup and … Read More Gluten Free Zucchini Bread Pudding

PB&J Gluten Free Oat Muffins

I’m pretty sure I ate a PB&J sandwich for lunch every day in grades 1 through 5. Listen, my mom loved me and everything. It was a different time, people. Moms weren’t sending their kids to school with grass fed, certified organic, wild caught, gluten free, dairy free [insert trendy hippie food here]…even in Austin. (s/o to my hometown)   After 5 years of … Read More PB&J Gluten Free Oat Muffins

Ultimate Summer Bowl

It was in the ‘90s in DC yesterday and in honor of the transition to warmer weather (finally!), I’ve developed not just a summer bowl, but the ULTIMATE summer bowl.   I wasn’t planning on calling it that, but this seriously turned out AMAZING. The cucumber, corn, cherry tomatoes, and mango are refreshing on a hot summer day. The lemon vinaigrette took about 30 … Read More Ultimate Summer Bowl

Paleo Carrot Muffins

I am so excited at how these muffins turned out. I ate half the recipe in one day. That’s six muffins in one day and I’m not even pressed about it.   This recipe is essentially a variation on my spinach muffin recipe, but with carrots instead…and I have to say–I think I like the carrot muffins better! I also used my paleo flour … Read More Paleo Carrot Muffins

Paleo Flour Blend

After a fair amount of experimentation, this is my favorite paleo and gluten free flour recipe. A lot of gluten free flours that you buy at the store may be made with rice flour, starches, bean flour, potato flour, etc. There isn’t a problem with this unless these types of foods disagree with you.   The paleo diet recommends eliminating rice, beans, and white … Read More Paleo Flour Blend

Spinach & Zucchini Paleo Quiche

  This is THE BEST grab and go breakfast to bring to work. I have been slacking lately, but for a while, this was my Sunday go-to. I would make this quiche every Sunday and cut it into 5 slices, one for every day of the week. I’ve discovered that I feel better when I start my day with egg, rather than grains (even … Read More Spinach & Zucchini Paleo Quiche
