Spiced Nuts

Nuts are such a simple thing to snack on throughout the week. It’s one of my go-to snacks like hummus or energy balls. They’re kind of boring by themselves so I try to switch up the flavor when I season them up. You can put whatever spice or herb you want on the nut mixture….


Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

I just led a retreat in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was the most magnificent time and truly gave me the opportunity to cook for the fall. We had a packed schedule with hiking, yoga, and face masks so our meals had to be quick but delicious. I wanted these women to feel like they could make these…


Rosemary Lemon Dressing

Rosemary is probably my favorite herb. It’s useful in reducing the severity of asthma attacks because of its anti-inflammatory compounds. According to the World’s Healthiest Foods, “rosemary contains substances that are useful for stimulating the immune system, increasing circulation, and improving digestion.” It can also help with improving concentration because rosemary helps increase blood flow…


Black Bean Tacos with Goji Berry Salsa

Black beans are such an easy thing to have on hand so I use them in multiple recipes. They can be made into black bean veggie burgers, hummus, or these delicious tacos. Goji berry powder is a totally different ball game. It has a fruity taste and it’s packed with so many benefits. Goji berries…


Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

My mouth is watering as I write this post. I wish I still had some of this vinaigrette in the fridge right now but I ate it on nearly every salad or quinoa bowl I had last week. You can keep your cilantro in a jar with water and it will last longer than in…


Southwest Salad

A southwest salad may mean Fritos and tons of meat to you but this one is packed with as much crunch, flavor and ingredients that are really good for you. I whipped this up at my Summer Self Care and Salads workshop and it was a hit. This was probably my favorite of the three…


Chocolate Pudding

This chocolate pudding is seriously better than a Snack Pack. I used to eat a Snack Pack nearly every day as a kid. We’d top them with some Oreos and add in some gummy worms and it was the best dirt and worms ever. This variation is actually good for you. The chocolate taste comes from cacao…


Spaghetti Squash with Beet Sauce

Anything with beets just amazes me. The color is so vibrant and luxurious. You’ve heard me say similar things before if you’ve read my beet hummus blog. Plus, you cannot beat the flavor of beets! Seriously. Mix them with spaghetti squash and you’ll be sure to enjoy a fantastic meal. I used the leftover sauce on…


Spicy Chocolate Bark

The spicy chocolate bark was another addition to our Savor the Moment chocolate and wine meditation. This was my favorite. The spice gave it just the right kick. I also made coffee, almond and coconut chocolate bark, Almond Joy energy balls and chocolate, oat, flaxseed energy balls. Let me know in the comment section which chocolate…


Balsamic Chicken or Chickpea Lettuce Wraps

Angie, one of the co-leaders for the Palm Springs Energy Mastery Retreat posted a photo of these chicken and chickpea lettuce wraps. we made for our tasting. Two of the girls said that’s what sold them on the retreat. We made chickpea and chicken so people had a meat-free option! We used butter leaf lettuce, which was…
