Cherry and Lemon Acai Bowl I have to admit, I looked in my fridge and threw this smoothie bowl concoction together on a whim! I didn’t know how it would turn out with the addition of the lemon juice. I love lemon and add lemon juice to the majority of my juices, however, I’m not sure why I wasn’t adding it to my smoothies. Well, I did, and I love how it turned out. There’s just a hint of that fresh, citrus taste and then with the sweet cherries and acai, this bowl has quickly become a favorite of mine and my hubs! He actually said, “who needs ice cream when you have that?!” It was so cute he said that and said it with such enthusiasm. That means a lot especially because he does love ice cream! With that kind of encouragement, I knew I had to share on the blog!  keep reading

Gluten-Free Biscuit + Jam Valentine Cookies It kind of seems unfair that just a month after the beginning of the New Year, which typically involves resolutions for a healthier year, that Valentine’s Day arrives. A day that centers around love, but also lots of chocolate and candy. But, no need to worry! There are plenty of tasty ways to still enjoy this holiday without the sugar coma or bloating or breakouts that often come with too much sugar. I’ve been recipe testing different recipes to share this Valentine’s Day, and this one I have to say I L.O.V.E! Honestly, though, the first batch I made I didn’t like at all. They had way too much coconut flour or almond meal or both. So, I got back in the kitchen the next day and tried again…this time with different measurements and guess what…I approve!  And so does my husband and my mom who I had taste them as well. Only the best recipes for you!  keep reading
