BBQ’d Veggie Bowl | Carcinogen Free Indulgence!

Image(12)

What I love most about eating an oil free diet is that it allows be to indulge in the true flavor of food, and the pleasure that comes in the simplest meals.

When consuming foods with oil, the flavor is covered up in what I like to refer to as slime, masking the full rainbow of blasting firework flavor 🙂 Continue reading

Carried Away By Caraway | Sauerkraut

When it comes to fermenting foods, I take it quite seriously. I firmly believe that we need to be consuming foods that have the strong ability to heal, restore, and maintain our bodies as much as possible. In my personal opinion, this goes far beyond consuming just  the right whole foods.

By now you’ve probably noticed that I strongly advocate the elimination of processed oils in the daily diet, with a firm advocation of whole foods and fermented “experiments” as well.FullSizeRender(32) Continue reading

Stirring & Frying Without Oil | Flavorful Oil Free Stir Fry

IMG_0559I’d like to direct this post to my clients, as their dedication to their nutritional programs and lifestyle changes with food continue to inspire these oil free food creation recipes.

For newbie oil free lifestylers, it’s easy to reach the false conclusion that you aren’t able to eat anything on a diet that’s oil free. This is often the conflict my clients run into within their logical breakdown. I don’t blame them either! We’ve learned to prepare foods with mass amounts of oil, which I have learned is often unnecessary. However, what is required is the will and motivation to be open to a new way of preparing foods 🙂

Most recipes require oil, which poses the question of how to replace the oil when it seems so mandatory in a recipe? Continue reading

Get Ready To Parfait | The Clean Superfood Way

Image(3)When you first begin to recreate your lifestyle by making healthier choices, it can often seem as though you’re going to be missing out on the beautiful pleasures of life! All that encompass food, really.

I’ll definitely be one to tell you that in my childhood years of constant dieting, I often felt deprived. However, at the same time, dieting became my way of life that in reality I learned to love.

Today, my food creations seem to be greatly inspired by my childhood favorites 🙂

One of my all time unhealthy favorite foods was the McDonalds Fruit and Yogurt Parfait. The thought of it now is a bit disgusting just by knowing what’s in their food products.

SO, with reminiscing on this childhood fav…I’m excited to share this super simple remake with you!

Just in case you need to jaunt your memory…

If you stay away from dairy products, then you can substitute with a clean source of dairy free yogurt.

Keep an eye out for those chemicals in dairy free products, please!

I love to advocate Wallaby Yogurt because of their wide variety of cultures use in their products 🙂

I refer to them in a previous post featuring the best fermented foods you can purchase in the grocery store.


Ingredients

1 cup Wallaby Whole Greek Yogurt

1/2 cup fresh strawberries

1/2 cup wild frozen blueberries

1 Tsp raw unheated honey

1 Tbsp bee pollen

1/2 cup of rolled oats



Directions

Let blueberries thaw out for 10 minutes before making your parfait bowl for the perfect texture

Cut tops off of strawberries and slice them, in quarters or in thin slices 🙂

Scoop yogurt and place on top of berries. Sprinkle oats and bee pollen over yogurt, followed by drizzles of honey 🙂

I love to enjoy this bowl after a great long lap swim! This beautifully nutritious bowl sustains my “fuel tank” all day!

Enjoy every bite of this perfect parfait!

Fermented Foods You Don’t Have To Make | What To Buy & Why

phonto

For the past three years I’ve been making my own fermented foods at home. I fell in love with fermented foods the first moment I tasted a homemade batch of fermented sunflower seed spread, almost as if it were a love affair! From that moment on, I began preparing ferments at home. There’s a beautiful sense of fulfillment that continuously grows when preparing fermented foods in your own environment! Especially when you notice you’re reaping the benefits 🙂  However, I’ve learned that there are many moments where it seems like the time is not available to prep! Continue reading

Kraut de Purpz | Fermented Cabbage!

Happy fermentation Friday!

So, I’ve spent all this time talking about fermented foods, and posting fermented photos on my Instgram. The entire time of taking pictures and talking about these fabulous healing foods, a few subscribers have helped me realize that I don’t even have a basic step by step process for you to actually make your own batch! I love this method of fermentation because it literally requires such a small list of required fermenting ingredients 🙂

An easy vegetable to begin fermenting with is red cabbage. Its full of flavor, an erupting color explosion to any plate, and supports digestion. What more would you ask for?  Continue reading
