What better treat on a hot summer’s day than a nice dollop of ice cream? It’s creamy, delicious and a great way to cool down.

But what if I told you that you can have your ice cream and have it nourish you, too?! My Strawberry-Banana Nice Cream is the perfect treat on a hot summers day, filled with lots of cool nutritious goodness.Read More

I love a good muffin! But visiting the local bakery or café can provide some challenges if you are looking for a healthy option. Most muffins are made with dairy, refined sugar and lots of wheat gluten-filled flours. So I set out on a mission to make my own muffin that would be both delicious and made without these pro-inflammatory ingredients.Read More
I like to have a roasted chicken from time to time, and rather than throwing out the carcasses, I will freeze them until I have enough to make a delicious, nutritious and versatile chicken bone broth.
Bone broth is so good for you! It’s loaded with so many great nutrients, including collagen – a protein found in the skin, bones and muscles. When the chicken carcasses are boiled down, the collagen in the bones becomes nutrient-packed gelatin.Read More
