The joys of preparing food go deeper than a hobby or the taste testing. This recipe is a perfect example of that. Making a meal at home for yourself and/or the ones you love goes beyond saving money or eating clean; it allows the opportunity to nourish on a deeper level, no matter how fancy [...]

coco-butter tea… modern day take on a Tibetan tradition

By | January 19th, 2016|Health, Nutrition, Recipes, To Drink|

While I absolutely LOVE my locally roasted organic coffee, I also think that there is something to be said for keeping things varied, and for not loading the body with tons of caffeine every morning. Variety is the spice of life, you know. Plus, studies have shown that consuming high amounts of caffeine can negatively impact cortisol.  Caffeine acts [...]

The chocolate chip cookie. A favorite of kiddo and adult alike. The cookie that when baked from scratch can solve most any problem. From the baking to the eating, the experience is like none other. Which is why I've come up with this super simple chocolate chip cookie recipe. Gluten is simply off the table [...]

And this time of year, nothing sounds better. So, I've gone to work to create a delicious grain-free classic chicken pot pie that will fulfill [...]

Cheers to a great 2015. Loads of change came my way (and by no happenstance also to Radical Roots). The blog got a whole new facelift. I moved to a whole new state.

The holidays are in full swing at the Radical Roots homestead, and that means it's sugar cookie time. My husband is a cookie fiend (if you didn't know that already), and since the day after Thanksgiving, he's been asking for sugar cookies to have with homemade eggnog (next recipe coming your way). We had a [...]

pumpkin pie bites

Pumpkin pie easily makes my top ten favorite desserts list. It's so good, in fact, that I've decided to make a whole new dessert inspired by this favorite. This past month we had a group of friends over to hangout. We provided a variety of nibbles but no sit down meal. I wanted to make [...]
