Vegetable Noodles!

Daikon radish Pad Thai

I’ve been using a vegetable spiralizer for awhile now to make vegetable noodles.  When I switched over to a no grain diet I needed something to put my pesto and home made meat sauce on!  I started by using zucchini only as it is the easiest one to use (leave the skin on for the healthy green part, but you can peel to make it look more like real noodles!)..

How Sugar Substitutes Stack Up


I think by now we all realize that sugar is something to be avoided, but do we really know why?  In table sugar, glucose is the portion that is used by our cells for energy.  The best sources of this are starchy vegetables. Fructose on the other hand is the portion that we need to try to avoid.  Fructose cannot be used for energy by our cells, the liver must.. Read More


Bulletproof Coffee and Why I Changed The Recipe

In the past year the term “bulletproof” coffee has become a household name. Well maybe! Butter and oil in coffee????? I remember when I first heard of the concept I thought it sounded totally gross! How did this concept start, and why do people do it? The inventor of Bulletproof coffee is a guy named Dave Asprey who has a best selling book called “The BulletProof Diet”. According to his..

Slow-cooker Chicken Piccata


I am in love with my slow cooker.  I recently bought a new one on the recommendation of a friend that can brown the meat right in the crock pot.  You can find it here on Amazon.  I found that when a recipe called for me to brown the meat first I never did it because I didn’t want to waste a pan (and I’m lazy) so I’d just throw..

Maple Brussel Sprouts and Why You Should Eat Them

Brussel Sprouts

Remember as a kid, hiding these in a plant when your mom made them?  This preparation not only makes them delicious but kid and husband friendly!  What you need: 1 bag or bunch of brussel sprouts. If little you don’t need to cut, if larger trim ends and cut in half a good drizzle of olive oil to cover brussel sprouts, I’d say about 2 Tbsp’s a good drizzle of.. Read More


Iodine: Eating Sea Vegetables to Help Your Thyroid

Sea Vegetable seasonings

A simple way to boost your thyroid function and protect against cancer?  Add kelp or other sea vegetables to your eggs, soups, salads or anything you can sprinkle seasoning on.  I am not a fan of iodine supplementation in pill form (unless supervised by a Dr. for extremely low levels that have been tested).  But organic toxic-free sea vegetables are a safe way to boost your levels.  Many of us..
