Hi all,

Happy healthy eating, with the upcoming warm weather, as well as in celebration of health in general, regardless of temperature or time of year!  This one is homey, cheesy, delicious, and yet, it’s without any grains or gluten.  It’s to-die-for-delicious though.  Skeptical?  Try it yourself.  We make this one almost every week, it’s that good.  It may just become a staple in your home too!

Tempeh Teriyaki Quinoa Bowl

This umami inducing, oh-so-scrumptious and satisfying, totally-hits-the-spot entree is one on which you will soon be hooked.  It’s also incredibly healthy, made with a base of quinoa (gluten/grain-free, as this is actually a seed), scallions, red cabbage, marinated tempeh, and then though not pictured, I recommend it topped with a fried egg.  SO good, a cinch to make, and with flavors that pack a punch.

Gluten free and Low Sugar Chocolate Cheesecake

Happy Wednesday, all!

This chocolate cheesecake is the perfect guilt-free (or nearly ;-)) treat.  Made with no added sugar (honey aside), its gluten free (sans crust), though is decadent and delicious.  Swirled through with Greek yogurt and bittersweet chocolate.  This is a cheesecake you can feel significantly better about eating, as opposed to the traditional versions (which are far more laden with sugar, usually with a gluten-based crust, and more fat).

Here is how to make it!

Apple Nachos

Dessert nachos!  I realize this is a bit of a cheat recipe, given there arent really instructions needed.  Still, I hadn’t considered this as a snack possibility until stumbling upon it online, then, like a light bulb, found myself delighted and excited by this new snack idea.  Its surprisingly very satisfying.

And the topping ideas, despite my photo only showing one variety, are endless.

Crustless Veggie & Cheese Quiche

This one looks humble and unimpressive, but it is TASTY!  Made with kale, zucchini, and lots of cheese.  Yes, please.  Its fluffy, light, cheesy, oh so satisfying and good.  This one is gluten/grain free, and of course, sugar free.  I use dairy-free milk, though the cheese of course has lactose.  Thus, if you wish for a lactose-free quiche, I recommend either no cheese or vegan cheese.

Here is how to make this delicious dish.

Paleo Fish Tacos

Tacos are one of the best dishes on the planet.  However, in consuming a diet largely void of grains/wheat/bread, this makes continuing my love affair with said hand held treat a tough one.  However, to my relief and thrill, I found the most delicious recipe.  Granted, these are more toastados than taco, but man oh man, are they tasty.  Totally on par with and hitting the taco spot, though without the bad-for-your-body ingredients.

Grain/gluten free, lactose free, sugar free, these are a homey, scrumptious meal that is also awesome for your health!
