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!
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.
Man, oh man, are these fluffy, moist, and totally tasty. Super easy to make, and I was stunned of their texture being exactly the same as any other cupcake. One cannot tell the difference between these and cupcakes made with flour. Thus, why not then make the healthier cupcake, if there is no sacrifice of taste? Your body and health will thank you for it 🙂
Gluten-free/grain-free, lactose-free, and with only honey used for sweetener, these are a cupcake you can feel far better about eating!
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).
Ready for a brown sugary, moist, lightly sweet, delicious cake? And, one that is gluten free/grain free, lactose free, and not especially high in sugar? Here you go. This one is light and lovely. Perfect with a side of whipped cream and fresh fruit, or, just as delicious on its own.
Happy Monday, all! The perfect Monday treat: triple chocolate mousse. Though this is a version you can feel far less guilty on eating. Oh man, is this decadent and delectable. Dont take my word for it though. Try it out yourself, its a cinch to whip up.
Its gluten/grain-free, and with way less sugar than usual mousse recipes.
Oh my gosh, is this stuff tasty! Initially I worried about it being a bit bland or of an odd texture, as its made with almond and coconut flours. However, the end result was a moist, cinnamon-y, lightly sweet, blueberry laden, divine cake! Or, blueberry buckle, if you will.
While slightly involved, its overall, an easy one to toss together. A fun interplay of textures going on here too, with the crunch of walnuts on top, the spongy cake texture, the burst of fresh berries on biting into them.
On whipping this up, you will be gifted with having something scrumptious to accompany your wintery warm drinks with each afternoon for the week. Enjoy!
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.
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.
Happy Wintery, Snowy Monday, my fellow dessert devotees,
