Prosciutto Egg Cups

So I am now two weeks into my great Whole30 Experiment! And I am happy to report I feel better than ever. I am enjoying the culinary challenge of coming up with new recipes although it can be challenging to plan every single meal. I’ve remedied this by spending a few hours cooking on Sunday. Yesterday I made these egg cups, 3lbs of almond chicken fingers, a roast beef, roasted beets and sweet potatoes, and cut and washed a ton of veggies. All that prep should make a weeks worth of meal a bit simpler. This recipe is laughably simple. It makes for a great breakfast and can be eaten [...]

Bora Bora Fireballs

So far the Whole30 Experiment is going great! Thank you all for your supportive comments and emails. I am happy to be a guinea pig for those toying with the idea of trying something like this for themselves. I think what has made this experience relatively painless for me is that I’ve been cooking some really great new recipes that I’m super excited about. Since I’m new to this type of cooking and eating, being the good student that I am, I sought out some additional resources. I found The Clothes Make the Girl, completely fell in love with Melissa and her recipes, and then downloaded her paleo cookbook, Well [...]

Paleo Almond Chicken Fingers

So the Whole30 Experiment is going pretty well so far. I am definitely feeling pretty great after a few days. No stomach aches, no headaches and I’ve been sleeping really well. I am excited to see how things progress. I am eating a lot of food and I feel super full and satiated. I don’t however, feel sluggish or bloated, which is awesome. So for my first new recipe I wanted to share these amazing chicken fingers. I was actually compelled to start blogging about this experience because these were sooo damn good. I have made a lot of baked chicken fingers on this site – but these were my [...]

Whole30 Challenge

I’m back! After about six weeks of no blogging I am rested up and ready to go. For the past few months, I’ve been toying with the idea of changing things up, diet-wise. I have always been pretty set in my food philosophy. I cook my own meals with whole, organic ingredients and prioritize whole grains and veggies with the occasional treat. However, over the past year, I have not been feeling like myself. I’ve been sluggish and plagued by constant stomach aches. My sleep habits went from decent to terrible and I’ve been breaking out like I’m hitting puberty all over again. After some blood tests to rule out [...]

Taking a Break…

Hello Beloved Readers! I know it’s been a while since I posted. I have been taking a much needed break from blogging and social networking for a bit. My last post occured on Monday April 15th, which was the day of the Boston Marathon bombing. This event and the weeks that followed were pretty stressful here in Boston. I decided it was a good time to take a break and reflect on some things. I love blogging very much, but balancing my day job with these responsibilities has been extremely challenging and has made me neglect some other areas of my life. So it seemed to be the right time [...]

Thai Quinoa Squash Salad – Guest Post at Whipped

Hello! I am very honored to be guest posting today for Kristina at Whipped. If you don’t know Kristina, I suggest getting to know her ASAP. She is a brilliant and creative cook who mixes lovely healthy recipes with yummy desserts. My favorites include Homemade Oreos, Butternut Squash Salad with Maple Vinaigrette, Turkey Sloppy Joes, and Spicy Shrimp and Avocado Crostini. When Kristina asked me to guest post, I agonized over what to contribute. I wanted something healthy and flavorful. I settled on my favorite superfood: quinoa. This Quinoa salad combined creamy roasted squash with tangy Thai flavors. It’s a great make ahead vegan meal that will give you [...]

Takeout Makeover: Baked Falafel

I LOVE falafel. It is one of those foods I only have once in a while from a food truck or a take out restaurant and I always think to myself “I should make this at home.” After Craig and I grabbed falafel last weekend he persuaded me to make a healthier version. Challenge accepted! Falafel is actually an incredibly simple vegan recipe. Just combine chickpeas with parsley, onions and a whole bunch of spices and cook. Traditionally, falafel is deep fried, but I decided to bake them instead. I baked and then broiled for a few minutes to get a crisp exterior. There are many fabulous ways to eat [...]

Super Slaw

So, a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win the most amazing giveaway. The lovely Katherine Martinelli was giving away a Magimiz by Robot-Coupe food processor to celebrate her 2 year Blogoversary. I was the lucky winner of this giveaway and I have been BLOWN AWAY by this food processor. It has a whole bunch of different blades for slicing, julienning and pureeing. In addition, I was lucky enough to get the juicer and smoothie attachments as well. So, I’ve been having a blast experimenting with my new toy. I’ve done some soups, some baking and some slicing but I decided it was time to try a slaw! [...]

Friday Links & Carb Love

Another week goes by and March begins to wrap up. I for one can’t wait for April. March has been plagued by lots of snowstorms, colds and the inability to wear cute spring shoes. Things are looking up – when I leave work it is still light out (sometimes) and I am begining to get a bit of spring fever. I have the overwhelming urge to go out and buy sandals and shorts despite the fact that today is a warm 40 degrees. Anyway. Have you checked out my CARBS Pinterest Board yet? I am constantly updating it with lots of carby goodness. I also just started a BACON board, [...]

Pistachio Quinoa Pilaf with Harissa

Quinoa is one of those amazing healthy foods that I enjoy but nonetheless neglect when it comes to thinking up fun recipes. Lately, my grain experimentation has mainly included bulgur and farro, but I decided to fix that pronto. Quinoa is a seed, actually – not a grain, but you catch my drift… Did you know? Quinoa is actually a seed, not a grain and related to the spinach family. It has been grown for centuries in South America, where it was a staple of the Incan diet. Quinoa is a great source of both protein and fiber. It contains all 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. [...]

Healthy Snacks to Include in Your Kid's Lunch Box

Giving kids healthy snacks does not end at the 4 walls of the home. Since they spend most of their day in a week at school, it is important that the snacks they consume are just as healthy as those that you give them at home.

English Trifle Recipe

Being away from my home in Scotland for so long now, there are some recipes that, if I don't make them myself, I just never get to eat them. This is one, trifle. For us Brits, pretty run of the mill stuff, maybe even a bit standard, but by the same token, it is a definite crowd pleaser. I haven't met anybody yet who doesn't (if they are honest) love a trifle. When I started getting myself organised to make a trifle, I realise that it took a bit more thought than I had imagined. When my mum made it, it just seemed to appear like magic from the fridge. I hadn't considered the work involved. I don't want to put you off, though, it's not complicated, just needs a little bit of time on the chilling and setting front. So not even your time, but that of your fridge.

Tiramisu Recipe: No Cookin', Just Chillin'

These are the kind of desserts that I love to make (and eat!). This is ideal to make if you have friends and family coming round. Why? Well, you can make it in advance, and when you have had your main course, you can enjoy the company and the conversation in the knowledge that when everybody is ready for dessert, so are you. Just whip it out of the fridge and off you go!

An Apple A Day, Helps To Fight Heart Attack Away

The old Adage of "An Apple a day, keeps the doctor away" actually proves its worth. Little do we know how Apples can benefit us in heart health. You've got to eat it, to know it!

Coconut-Oatmeal Crisps With Cherries

For many, Christmas means lots of baking, especially baking Christmas cookies. There are hundreds of recipes to choose from, including cut out cookies, rolled cookies, and drop cookies. Drop cookies are probably the easiest type to make. This recipe brings flavors and the red color of Christmas together.

Amaretti Cookie Torte With Fresh Raspberries

The holidays are a busy time, a time of rushing and gift-wrapping and fixing meals for family. Even if you love to bake, you may not have time to bake a fancy dessert. This dessert, which uses Amaretti cookies imported from Italy, looks fancy, tastes fancy, and requires only about 12 minutes of prep time.

Cinnamon-Applesauce Cake With Eggnog Whipped Cream

The holidays are approaching and you're pressed for time. What will you serve for a holiday dessert? This recipe combines two holiday flavors -- cinnamon and eggnog -- is a flavorful ending to any meal. You can make the cake days ahead and freeze it.

Selecting The Right Frozen Yoghurt Machine For Your Business

If you are planning to set up a frozen yoghurt shop, it is essential that you will have to get an appropriate machine for the same. There are frozen yoghurt suppliers, who deal with gadgets meant for preparing it as well. As this is a kind of investment for your business, you should be careful about the selection of the right device and the right supplier. As there are many dealers and manufacturers dealing with them, it will surely be confusing to arrive at the best. Even, you might be thinking about hiring a device rather than purchasing one. So, you will have to decide whether hiring or procuring one would be the ideal alternative after considering your present financial condition. This is a major decision to be made towards the future of your startup company.

France Gets Its Very Own Ratatouille-themed Restaurant

Who doesn’t love Pixar’s movies? They’ve pretty much set the standard of what a modern animated feature can aspire to. That opening scene of Up? Yowza. The first half of Wall-E? Ha cha cha.

Now It’s Getting Ridiculous: Introducing the Doughscuit

Somewhere in this mysterious, grand world of ours there exists a group of food wizards who just love combining stuff. First, they stuffed a donut and a croissant together and created the Cronut, and the people wept with joy. Next, they mashed a bagel with a croissant to create the horribly named Crogel, and the [...]

Meatless Monday: Sochi-Inspired Beet Salad

Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. It’s not a campaign to turn everyone in the world vegetarian or vegan; in fact, many involved are meat-lovers. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving [...]

(Mostly) Adorable Food That Looks Like Groundhogs

Now There is a Vending Machine That Pops Out Tomatoes

Vending machines are great. Where else can you get a dusty candy bar from 1983 at a truck stop in the middle of the night? On that note, however, most vending tend to have some pretty gross stuff in them. Sure, there have been exceptions, but for the most part it’s chips and soda. Now [...]

The Extraordinary Miracle Berry Conspiracy

Back in the 1970's the sugar industry was on the verge of being upset by an all-natural organic alternative. Sadly corporate greed and political influence kept this amazing substitute from seeing the light of day... until now.

Recipe for Poached Salmon With Potato and Radish Salad

Please, don't get the wrong idea, I mean, my whole business is built on healthy eating. Difference is though, I try and do it all year, for ever (with exceptions, of course - you've seen all my Christmas food offerings, I am not pretending that they were low-cal alternatives by any means). In fact I think that a little bit of what you fancy does you no amount of good! So the big January push on healthy food, goes a little against my principles, but I understand the need.

Herbal Remedies - Cayenne Pepper

In case you are keen on eating hot chili or salsa, you would probably be interested to know a bit more about one of the main ingredients in them - the cayenne pepper. What is cayenne pepper? Capsium annuum or cayenne is actually coming from the Greek verb "to bite".

Delicious and Healthy Snacks For Healthy Living

Snacks are the food items that we munch on at odd times to keep the hunger pangs away until meal times. Can we indulge on snacks? Yes, as long as it is healthy. Over-indulgence on fried and sweet snacks causes weight gain. Eating healthy snacks on the other hand keeps us slim and helps in our quest for weight loss too.

The Benefits of Cayenne Pepper Powder

Cayenne pepper is a spice some people would happily put in their meal to spice it up, while on the other hand, some would avoid it, afraid not to burn their tongues. No matter which type of person you are, the capsicum (its other name) has undeniable advantages for your health. That is why including some cayenne pepper powder wouldn't bring any harm, right?

Making Homemade Vanilla-Flavored Greek Yogurt

Because Greek yogurt is generally such a good treat for the health-conscious consumer, I advocate incorporating it into your diet if only sparingly. It helps if you can learn how to make your own, so as to avoid the sometimes excessive cost of yogurts like Fage and Chobani on supermarket shelves - when they aren't on sale, that is. Many people refuse to pay more than a dollar for yogurt (understandably), which makes my mother's homemade vanilla Greek yogurt recipe such a timely treasure to share.

Chinese Cooking for Low Calorie Meals

It is really great to note that people are getting more conscious of their health lately. Perhaps the Internet has a great contribution to this. Anyway, as people become increasingly aware of their calorie intake and levels of saturated fat, sugar and cholesterol, they are getting hesitant of buying and consuming even the foods they love.

Smoothie of the Month: Green Apple and Green Tea Breakfast Smoothie

To create Food Network Magazine‘s trimmed-down mac and cheese (pictured above), we skipped the usual butter-flour roux and used pureed cooked cauliflower as a thickener.

YOU ARE NOT AT RISK - Excerpt from the book "Its Mom' Sharon Carson -

By examining a patient’s family medical history, physicians try to determine if there is an increased risk of the patient developing a particular disease or inherited condition. From a spiritual perspective, however, Christians are part of the family of God, their father God, his Son Jesus, and The Holy Spirit; and there is neither sickness nor disease in the history of this family, and there never will be. When Jesus died on the cross, He took upon Himself as a vaccination, all sickness and disease known and unknown to man and provided us with immunity from them. We as Christians are not, therefore, at risk for any sickness or disease.
