A few weeks ago, we met my cousin and his family for brunch at this adorable kiddo friendly farm to table restaurant in Los Altos. In fact, the woman who started the restaurant is Mary from Five Mary's Farm. If you haven't checked her and her amazing family out, you should. She's one of my [...]

This year is off to a crazy, albeit awesome, start, and I am taking my clean eating with me. Busy days are no excuse to let food quality go to the wayside. In fact, the busier life gets, the more important it is to eat nutrient dense foods because they keep energy levels high, mood [...]

Ever heard of a tigernut? No, it's not made from tiger genitalia (I thought I would get that out of the way from the start). And no, it's actually not even a nut! TigerNuts are actually tubers, another radical root that has stolen my heart and my tastebuds. Even cooler? Tigernuts actually comprised up to 80% of [...]

MY husband and I have gotten really good at a once a week shopping trip to farmers market that lasts us the whole week. Usually, Friday and Saturday turn out some pretty awesome, creative meals as we work to use up whatever is left  before our Sunday trip. Soups turn to sauces, meals might look [...]

cranberry lemon swirl pancakes

Pancakes... oh how I love pancakes. There was a time, after realizing how severe my intolerance was to certain foods, when I thought I would never get to enjoy pancakes again. I tried all kinds of "paleo" pancakes and would always end up feeling bloated, heavy, and uncomfortable from loads of almond flour and a tummy [...]

cranberry sauce scones

I think it is a tragedy that every holiday season, globs of delicious cranberry sauce are thrown wastefully into the garbage. Cranberry sauce is one of those feast accompaniments that no one really knows what to do with once the meal is over and the leftovers are consumed. But that is all about to change. Put [...]
