Gluten-Free Chocolate Pie

Chocoholics, this one is for you. It’s wheat-free and gluten-free (not the same thing, contrary to some people’s assumption), and lower in sugar than many typical desserts. The base of this cake, though, is fudgy and rich, and the other two layers are whipped, creamy, light, and delicious.

The Best Raw Carrot Cake with Maple Cashew Frosting

Hi Fellow Foodies!

I realize it’s been a long time since I posted a recipe, but, better late than never, yes? So, here we go. I have a gem for you.

This one is super easy to make. It’s delicious, with a fun texture, and is way healthy to boot.

No wheat or gluten, very little sugar, no dairy, and made with raw ingredients which are excellent for your health.

Yes, it’s raw, which means that texture-wise, it will not be comparable to cake made with flour, however, this aside, the taste is fantastic. Don’t take my word for it, though. Whip it up and taste yourself. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

This is a cake you need not feel guilty about eating!

The Food You Eat is Either Feeding Disease or Fighting It.

The things we put into our body, food and drink, as well as other factors in how we treat our bodies, like getting enough sleep and controlling our levels of stress, all of this is either contributing or encouraging toward disease, or, helping to fend off disease from building.

Here is how.

Paleo Vanilla Cupcakes

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!

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!

Olive Oil Cake

This one is lightly sweet, springy in texture, and just delectable.  Though not gluten-free, it is lactose-free and, while not especially low in sugar, isn’t over the top either.  The cake is a scrumptious treat, the olive oil lending it a delightful flavor and texture.

Enjoy!
