Roasted Almonds

Roasted Almonds

I eat a lot of almonds. As a snack, as almond butter, as a crust for my cheesecake recipe. You get it – there’s a lot of almonds around here. I like my almonds to be roasted before I snack on them. Eating them raw just doesn’t seem to do it for me. However, when it comes to some recipes, raw works perfectly fine! So, instead of buying different kinds of almonds (because let’s face it […]

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Lately, I’ve had an obsession with avocados. Like I’m talking the kind of obsession where I have 12 avocados on my kitchen counter right now and tried to buy more at Jewel yesterday before Michael talked some sense into me. I’d say it’s an unhealthy obsession, but really it isn’t because so far, I can’t find anything bad about it! Avocados are healthy fats, low in sugar (meaning they’re great for the Candida diet), excellent source of vitamins, […]

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

Sauteed Brussel Sprouts

  Have you ever hated something your entire life only to find out that you really love it? I’m assuming the answer to that question is yes for about 95% of you. Because who didn’t grow up pretending to eat their broccoli, spinach, basically any green vegetable and then hide it in their napkin when their parents weren’t looking? Brussels sprouts was the worst of all the vegetables for me. It wasn’t until my cousin, Rena, made this […]

Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter Cups

Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter Cups

This post is going to be a rant with some chocolate if that’s okay. Because today, I feel like letting off some steam about a small obstacle I’m facing and I want to be real with you. If you haven’t noticed, I’m on the sugar-free grind lately. I have been on the candida diet/cleanse for the past month or so. This is literally the hardest diet I have ever been on. I thought that when I […]

Bacon Veggie Hash Skillet

Bacon Veggie Hash Skillet

Happy New Year everyone! It’s right about now that everyone flocks back to the gym and eat healthier in hopes to start their New Years’ resolutions off on the right foot, and here I am, eating bacon. In all seriousness, I eat ridiculously healthy now that I have an absurd amount of food intolerances, but bacon is my jam, my clutch, and my rock (I’m serious when it comes to bacon). I can’t live without […]

Snowflake Sugar Cookies

Snowflake Sugar Cookies

Oh the weather outside is frightful! Oh wait? It’s not? Seriously. It was 50 degrees last Friday. IN CHICAGO! What! We took advantage of the weather and walked to the Lincoln Park Zoo to see the Zoo Lights (basically the whole zoo is covered in Christmas lights and you can see some of the animals, although most were sleeping). It was unseasonably warm out so naturally the zoo was packed with people. I mean what […]
