yesterday’s nosh

My morning started with some overnight oats. My recipe is foolproof and fabulous. I did it with almond milk and added blueberries. Trader Joe’s has organic blueberries right now which are HUGE and delicious! Five out of five would recommend. I also had a soy latte. I use unsweetened, unflavored soy milk. The stuff I…

overnight oats

This is my foolproof recipe, which can be modified and added to in a million different ways! Start with the base recipe and then get creative. Add cocoa powder or different fruits. Flax seed would be good instead of chia. You can use almond milk, dairy milk, soy milk, hemp milk, coconut milk. Or sub…

will work for pastries

We need to talk french pastry. Because here in Baton Rouge, french pastry is a thing. I will tell you, based on my internet research, the best place here to get my favorite french pastry, the humble croissant, is a little place called La Madeleine. (I am sure there are other places doing homemade french…

taco-style zucchini boats (GF, low carb)

Ok guys, I have decided this recipe is one of the greatest low-carb recipes on the planet. I served it with rice mixed with black beans and corn, so the whole low carb thing was not my end goal. For me, it was more about upping the veg and fiber in my life. Funny thing about pregnancy…you need a lot more fiber. But this recipe is also a great way for GF eaters to eat tacos without suffering through tortillas that have the flavor and texture of cardboard.

why you should stop drinking your food, and eat it instead

2016 was the year of debunking 2015’s health crazes. And I love it. Unfortunately some myths die hard (take anti-vaxxing for example), and so we must persist in the battle against bad diet advice for all. As a yoga teacher, I am surrounded by other yogis all the time. I love them and their weird…

the perfect hardboiled egg

As promised, to continue my obsession with eggs. The key here is chill out. Don’t boil the poor things for 15 minutes. They can’t take it. The eggs will burst apart at the seams and you will end up with a mess…not to mention overcooked yolks. Thats how you get that nasty gray (sometimes greenish)…

yesterday’s nosh

The morning started off with a bowl of my favorite Siggi’s Yogurt, a drizzle of honey, and some sliced banana and kiwi. Siggi’s is a brand of Icelandic style yogurt called skyr. Skyr is a traditional type of yogurt made in Iceland which is very thick (thicker than greek yogurt) and high in protein. You can…

the best f***ing vegan chocolate chip cookies ever

I almost left out the word vegan in the description. They are so good, they might be better than any traditional chocolate chip cookies I have had. That being said, I am not a fan of super sweet things. So these are much less sweet than regular chocolate chip cookies. But they will satisfy a…

freezer foods: breakfast burritos

I know National Burrito Day was yesterday. But it got me so in the mood for burritos that I decided to make some breakfast burritos to stuff in my freezer. This recipe is super easy. And I suck at measuring but I’ll do my best so you can replicate it. These will freeze for 3…

the perfect scrambled eggs

Picture it. Michigan. 1965. My father is 16 years old. (Can you tell I’ve been catching up on Golden Girls recently?) But I digress. It is early in the morning. He and his friends had been up late the night before drinking on the beach, no doubt. They awake, ravenous. Eggs, they think. Perfect hangover food. But…

April 6: National Burrito Day

It is every pregnant woman’s dream. An excuse to eat burritos…not that I need one. I thought about making my own and posting about it, but I didn’t feel like it, so we ordered takeout. #realtalk Remember that episode of Desperate Housewives where Susan goes to the Lamaze class with a burrito in hand? One of…
