Recipe: Candy Apple Banana Pancakes

There’s just something special about fall. We moved to LA over the summer, so leaves changing colors, caramel apples, pumpkin spice lattes, and apple pie give me these nostalgic, warm & fuzzy feelings…I woke up this morning murmuring about candy apples & my grandma’s pancakes lol. However, I’ve been on a strict vegan diet lately so I’ve been […]

Recipe: Vegan & Gluten Free S’mores Pop Tarts

I’ve always loved Pop Tarts and S’mores have been SO good to me, but the thought of a store bought S’mores Pop Tart sickens me to this day. HOWEVER, I had a dream that eating a S’mores Pop Tart could cure cancer so I decided to come up with a recipe I would even eat! […]

Recipe: Cinnamon Rolls From The Gods

Who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls?! Growing up I ate the store-bought kind for YEARS, until I taught myself how to cook. In this recipe, I’ve taken a classic cinnamon roll and added a tropical twist. These were necessary this past winter during a series of arctic snow storms! Anybody that knows me, knows I HATE […]

Recipe: Paleo Dessert Crêpes

A few years back I ate at this AWESOME restaurant called “Wang Gang.” They only stayed open for a few months, but during that time I had at least 20 chocolate spring rolls. These sound gross, but they weren’t anything like traditional spring rolls. They reminded me of a chocolate phyllo being rolled into little […]

Recipe: Too many overripe bananas?

Traditional Southern Banana Pudding is quite possibly the most delicious dessert on the planet. However, between the sugar, butter, and chemical crackers (vanilla wafers) you’re asking for medical problems y eating this one. If you’re not into killing yourself slowly, you could always go for my favorite healthy breakfast/dessert, “banana nice cream.” You can find some “nice […]

5 Misconceptions About Food

There are so many misconceptions surrounding food and diet. Like much of what we hear in the media, mainstream information about nutrition is usually someone’s opinion, rather than fact. There’s always a new “healthy” fad (acai, avocado, garcinia cambogia, etc) or weight loss product in the news. There are also products and diet plans that actually […]

I Can’t Cook

I recently read an article that said the number one complaint of millennials is that we “can’t cook.” I’m sure this has something to do with the fact that we grew up in an age of total comfort and convenience. With a booming fast food industry, and rapidly advancing technology at our fingertips – it’s no longer necessary to know how to cook.   […]
