Orange Creamsicle Probiotic Popsicles

In Playa del Carmen, Mexico fresh juice is sold on every corner. You can literally walk into any little mom and pop restaurant and order orange juice and they will freshly squeeze the oranges right in front of you and serve it to you.  I feel spoiled!  Not only that but a litre of freshly…

Dairy-Free Spicy Salmon Dip

I love quick and easy meals! Although I called this dairy-free spicy salmon dip, it’s usually my lunch with a bunch of carrots and not a snack or appetizer. Sometimes I go wild and use plantain chips 😛 This salmon dip uses mayo instead of cream cheese or sour cream. I used to be that…

Immune Boosting Amethyst Gem Elixir Recipe

The whole spiritual awakening process is weird.  You’re going through life and having fun and then suddenly it’s like someone taps you on the shoulder and says it’s time to awaken.  Then you go through your dark night of the soul which is hardly ever a one night event and you come out someone you…

No Sugar Added Strawberry Watermelon Drink

“Peanut Butter” Balls

I love peanut butter and chocolate. However, peanuts are legumes and the paleo diet encourages you to avoid legumes, so that leaves us with almond butter as an alternative. I prefer almond butter made from roasted almonds with a touch of sea salt. Use your favourite almond butter to make these delicious balls. This is…

Are Your Condiments Gluten-Free?

More and more people are realizing they are sensitive to gluten – you don’t have to have full-blown Celiac or Crohn’s disease to have a bad reaction. While it’s fairly easy to avoid gluten in the usual suspects—bread, pasta, breakfast cereal, and anything labeled ‘wheat’—gluten is tricky and can show up in the most unexpected…

Fall Harvest Salad

I created this fall harvest salad way back in 2016.  It seemed perfect to share this fall salad now.  I love the mix of cranberries, clementines, pecans and bacon! This salad is the perfect fall salad.  It is a sweet salad that is hearty.  When I want to cut down on the sugar in the…

My review copy arrived literally an hour before I left for my flight to California.  I…
