Rhubarb. She’s a tall, slender, pink friend, who takes us tartly by the hand to tell us: “Spring is here. I’m not a fruit, but I taste like one. Let me walk you slowly toward strawberries and peas. But, for now, be content with me.” She is first to whisper, “Fruity” when the winds of winter still howl. Embrace her! …

Making a cup of chicory (herbal) coffee is as easy as making a cup of tea. But this herbal coffee is dark, for those of us who love a rich, bold, slightly bitter punch, and tastes a lot like real coffee. To add to its allure, it has the nutritional benefit of containing prebiotics, actually the highest concentration of inulin …

The thing about cake is that it can quickly get complicated. What with frostings and layers and wanting it to be pretty and hoping it will be moist… This cake solves that problem because when it’s done all we do is a little cocoa dusting; and it’s so pretty. The filling is FAST. The cake is LOVELY. The overall eye-appeal …

One of the greatest allures of the Instant Pot is not just the ease with which it produces soups and stews, but its ability to make puddings, breads and yogurts. This versatile appliance coaxes creativity and the desire to make healthy comfort foods in a new and easier way. Bread pudding calls to me each fall and winter. The grain-free …

Mojito is one of the best ice cream flavors. We serve it at our cafe, a dairy-free ice “cream”, and it’s well loved. We love the addition of cucumber, so I’ve added it here, too. These popsicles are the perfect grown-up celebration treat. For those who enjoy alcohol, like my hubby, it’s super fun and restful during an afternoon or …

Megan Breakfast, Drinks, I may receive a commission if you purchase through links in this post, Whole Food Recipes 27 Comments

I love making high-protein, gelatin-fortified hot chocolate. Resistant Starch & Gelatin My many variations evolved yet again recently when I decided to add resistant starch (RS) to the mix. Fact is, I can’t get a baked good or prebiotic veggies into my body everyday! Yet I do best (stabilized blood sugar levels and no constipation) when I have a form …

Megan I may receive a commission if you purchase through links in this post, Main Dishes, Soups and Stews 14 Comments

With only two veggies and pre-cooked sausages, this is a realistic weeknight meal that gives you bone broth and creamy goodness. Which sausages? Look at your market for Applegate or some other large link sausage that is pre-cooked. Or find a raw, sustainably-sourced mild Italian sausage. (Simmer them whole for 12 minutes. They’re now ready for this recipe.) The season …

GRASSHOPPER PIE~ Paleo & dairy-free!

Megan I may receive a commission if you purchase through links in this post, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 14 Comments

Paleo Grasshopper Pie. It’s good. Have you had the original version, made with creme de menthe? Not surprisingly, that version was likely developed in the 1950’s and contains dye from the green alcohol, not to mention many other -ahem- unnatural ingredients. This nutrient-dense version makes me smile: containing collagen, coconut butter, cocoa butter and spirulina. The crust is made with …
