You can’t resist pumpkin spice lattes this time of year! But I’m always hesitant to buy them at a coffee shop – even in decaf – because who knows what they put in it (often fake syrupy flavorings). I love making this because I know what EXACTLY goes in it and I feel good about…(Read More)

Zucchini w avocado sauce

Zucchini noodles are so popular for a lot of reasons right now.  Paleo folks love them because they are grain-free and low-carb. I love them because I have a personal goal to eat as many servings of fruits, veggies, and leafy greens as I can each day.  These definitely count! Our garden is…(Read More)

I love this lightened up version of potato salad. I use organic Yukon Gold potatoes as they are creamy and moist, and don’t require a lot of dressing and/or liquid like potato salad usually does.   Since I gave up eggs (mayonnaise), this is my go-to recipe! It is light, lemony, and delicious…(Read More)
