Pear Crisp Smoothie

Committing yourself to healthier eating shouldn’t leave you feeling deprived. It’s just about choosing alternatives that are better for you. Desserts call my name from time to time. Sometimes, I can easily ignore their calls, but there are those moments where playing hard-to-get just isn’t working. So, that’s kind of how I got started turning… continue reading »

Sweet Potato Casserole

When I was newly married, my Mom would send me big envelopes filled with recipe clippings she’d find in magazines and newspapers. On them, she’d jot down notes, circling things she liked and crossing out things she didn’t. I never really appreciated those clippings as much as I do now…almost twenty-five years later!

Almond Joy Smoothie

I’ve eliminated all added sugar from my diet for the past month and I’ve never felt better. Once you get past the first few days, your cravings really do subside. The thing is, Halloween happened. And there’s that one candy that I think every parent steals from their kid’s stash…Almond Joy. Sigh. I love those… continue reading »

Sweet Potato Apple Ginger Juice

You probably already know by now that I love juicing. Yes, you’ve heard me complain endlessly about cleaning the juicer, but somedays, it calls to me. With a fridge full of produce, I spent most of my Saturday morning playing mad scientist. Nothing was safe in those veggie bins! By the end, I bottled more… continue reading »

This salad has become my newest favorite! It combines so many great fall flavors with the added bonus of being packed with superfoods!

Gazpacho

While driving the other day, my daughter and I pulled into a roadside farm stand. There was the sweetest and most adorable older woman proudly arranging her tomatoes. For every basket my eyes landed on, she’d say, “Go ahead and try one!” That sweet lady knows exactly what she’s doing. I walked away with more… continue reading »
