ABOUT MY RECIPES

I create my recipes with a focus on clean eating.

I use as much fresh produce and cook with a wide variety of seafood, lean meats, and eggs. A lot of my recipes feature nuts, seeds, healthy oils, and apple cider vinegar.

All of my recipes are gluten-free. Many of my recipes are also grain-free so a lot of my baking is made with nut flours and coconut flour, although I sometimes use grains such as oats. I occasionally use chickpeas, beans and lentils as well.

I never, ever use refined sugar. This means all of my recipes use natural sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup and dates. (Read more about baking with natural sweeteners here.)

None of my recipes use cow’s milk. I love to incorporate goat’s cheese and feta cheese and plain yogurt in my recipes. I also use almond milk and coconut milk.

Making your own spices and condiments is fun and easy, so I’m excited to share my best recipes for making things like grainy mustard or curry powder.

    I am so delighted you have created this wonderful place for healthy eating. I spend so much time raising food that I never get a chance to explore new recipes. It’s maple syrup time right now. What recipes incorporating maple syrup do you recommend!!

      Hi Connie! So great to hear from you. I’ve been enjoying the goat anecdotes you shared on Facebook.

      As far as maple syrup… I’ll add your great question to Question and Answer queue for this Wednesday. Check back and I’ll have some fun suggestions for you. :)
