With Mother's Day coming up, we are soon ushered into brunch season! Lots of wedding showers, graduation celebrations etc. on the calendar, and that means lots of eggs! But what if you are allergic to eggs, you are watching your cholesterol or fat intake or simply don't want to put them on your plat...

Recently, I was invited to created a recipe for Kitchen Club Kids and they requested a farro recipe aimed toward kiddos 3-5 years old. I'm a big fan of having healthy snacks around the house and what kid (big or small!) doesn't like a sweet snack that you can eat with your hands? So, the no-bake far...

Sure these pancakes are cute; who doesn't like heart shaped food? And yes, they're pretty darn good for you, too - I've added date past for the sweetness, created a flax egg and there is no-oil! But the real kicker here is the BEETS! These little gems effortlessly increase levels of our nitric oxide...

Think a smoothie is the only way to get your greens in during the first meal of the day? Think again. You'll enjoy these savory little nuggets while reaping the benefits of the cocoa, walnuts and spinach. With no added sugar or oil, you can pop these all day long.

No way baby, this is NOT last night's dinner! This is your new breakfast: Breakfast Pizza. This plant-based, oil-free, guilt-free pizza does not require a hangover needed to nosh a pie in the a.m. You're starting off the day right with a kale and basil pesto, topped with creamy and cheesy organic t...

These cookies are a powerhouse for your bod! The beans deliver protein and fiber, the flax and the walnuts usher in omega-3s and even more fiber! Forget any flour and sugar, they're a no-show. You won't be slapping any hands caught in the cookie jar this time.

Tofu, yes you ca-do! This is a perfect brunch dish (anytime, really) as it's easy enough to whip up for just your or a crowd. It keeps for about 3-4 days, covered in the fridge, and it very versatile. Add whatever vegetables you'd like (or maybe none at all - I don't want to hear about that!), spice...

Now you can have your cake and eat it, too (for breakfast)!  These plant-based (vegan) and gluten-free carrot cake pancakes are somehow puffy and yet still dense, they give just a bit at that first decadent bite, but are not gooey at all. Top them with a creamy coconut vanilla cream sauce and you ha...

Five ingredients and no baking required?  Sign. Me. Up! These little bites of sunshine will keep you full in between meals, qualify for breakfast and help you prep for AND recover from that workout.  Full of fiber, protein packed not a speck of added sugar, these bites will be just what you (and t...

Created for an upcoming event I will be doing here at Dimvaloo in St. Louis that features Lorna Jane Active Living, I have created what I believe is quite possibly the the greatest pre/post workout nourish bite you can offer that beautiful bod of yours.  Packed with all the right complex carbohydrat...
