These fragrant cookies are nothing short than sent from the heavens. I am utterly in love with them and have been drooling and dreaming about them endlessly since creating this divine recipe. They are incredibly festive and would make a fabulous addition to any holiday (hint hint, New Years Eve coming up)!!
At Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live Retreat in Southern California, I create all kinds of desserts with and for the guests. These cookies are not only delicious but also super healing. Made without added sugar, oil, salt, dairy, flour, butter, or processed ingredients, they are ideal for indulging a healthy sweet tooth.
According to Dr. Fuhrman, saffron is a powerful tool in fighting depression. We love putting it in our food, especially something as delicious as cookies!
Guiltless fruit dip that is easy to make and will blow the socks off of your family and friends! It has a vanilla caramel taste and definitely satisfies a sweet tooth. The best part is it is completely salt, oil, and sugar free! Compared to a slice of cake [even whole food plant-based cake], this dessert is far easier, faster, & healthier :)
Growing up, Honey Mustard was my absolute favorite.
When I learned that honey was processed just like sugar and the traditional base of the dressing was mayo, I disappointingly abandoned all hope of having it again.
After several years eating a whole food plant-based, I have learned easy and amazing substitutions.
In the Fall of 2017, I watched a friend order this dressing and thought to myself, "I could totally recreate this using only high nutrient, healthy ingredients."
AND I DID!
Here is finally a way to guiltlessly enjoy high nutrient unHoney Mustard!!
It's time to use that Eggplant that is in season!
Here is a quick and easy recipe with such minimal prep that is melt in your mouth delish <3
Dairy-free tzatziki to pair with baked falafel, stuffed eggplant, as a spread on sandwiches or whole wheat pita, in lettuce wraps, as a salad dressing, or as a dip with carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, and veg!
To all the crouton lovers out there who still want to eat healthy <3 These Toasty Chickpeas are perfect when traveling or when added on a salad in place of croutons! They add a wonderful crunch to any main dish!!
A healthy way to enjoy Dairy-free Mozzarella? You better believe it!
I created this recipe because I have seen the ingredients in the vegan cheeses and I do not love them. There generally is a ton of oil, gums, salt, and highly processed ingredients.
So I came up with this recipe! Adding this NOTzarella with sliced summer tomatoes, fresh basil, and a balsamic drizzle is an amazing way to impress guests! It also works fantastically on homemade pizzas or as a spread on sandwiches!
Cauliflower wings make an excellent and satisfying meal! Pair with dairy free ranch and you have the perfect party/game day dish to share with loved ones :)
The secret to these cauliflower wings is “breading” them, baking them, then tossing them with the buffalo sauce to create the perfect texture and flavor!
Almonds. Ginger. Quinoa. Colorful Veggies. Explosion of flavor. Need I say more?!
A popular dessert in England, this nutrified Banoffee [banana & toffee] Pie is a decadent and healthy way to enjoy dessert!

Sun dried tomatoes will always have my heart <3 After spending time in Italy, I came back with three giant bags of sun dried tomatoes. I couldn't wait to start creating with these babies!
This spread can be used on sandwiches, wraps, lettuce boats, as a veggie dip, or thinned out with a little water and used as a salad dressing :)
Looking for a healthy, non-dairy sauce to drizzle on top of tacos, sweet potatoes, pasta, corn on the cob, black bean burgers, roasted veggies, salad, avocado toast, and, let's be honest, just about everything else. This recipe is a great substitution for sour cream that adds an extra kick. It can be used in so many different ways!
The simplest way to make marinara sauce! Blend & simmer and you’re ready to make an incredible meal :)
Most marinara’s on the market are filled with salt, sugar, and oil. The best option is to make your own. With this recipe, it’s never been quicker!!
This recipe is one of my favorite ways to celebrate fall flavors. Perfectly pumpkiny yet creamy and savory at the same time. Whole foods never tasted so good!!
Healthy dressings are hard to come by. And I mean HARD. Most on the market are filled with sugar, oil, salt, artificial and natural flavors, concentrates, dairy, various fillers and emulsifiers, the list goes on.
Why ruin a nutrient dense salad with a crappy dressing??
The easy solution is to make your own! In the beginning of the week, I make a big batch of this Creamy Cashew Dressing. Having it on hand at a moments notice has been nothing short of a life savor. Prepping this recipes weekly really encourages me to eat more salad and acts as my mayo replacement on sandwiches and other recipes!

You can now have your Chia Fig Bar and eat it too!
