grain free sugar cookies

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 [...]

thanksgiving recipe round up

Thank you!! Thanksgiving is upon us, and I would like to take some time to THANK YOU. Thank you for reading. Thank you for caring, sharing, and for exploring new ideas, new recipes, and new ways to nourish yourself, the earth, and the ones you love. This has been one hell of a year so far, [...]

on the move

Oh moving. The joy. The excitement. The anxiety. The stress. Oh, and the bruises (at least I used all of my fitness)... But it's all worth it. We have officially moved up to the Pacific Northwest, we're putting down roots in our little Radical Roots Homestead, and we couldn't be happier. I've been getting a lot [...]

creamy tomato soup… a favorite family tradition

By | 2016-12-20T11:26:53+00:00 December 29th, 2014|Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

As far back as I can remember my family has spent Christmas Eve at my great aunt and uncles (the coolest God Parents a girl could ask for). Some of my most cherished memories are from this night once a year where the parents would eat raw oysters (which I thought were nasty). Where I had [...]

holiday spiced cran-apple kombucha sangria (that’s a mouthfull)

By | 2015-04-01T08:22:57+00:00 December 15th, 2014|Recipes, To Drink|

If you haven't learned by now, I just love this time of year. The spirit, the food, the flavors, and the continuos merriment. What's not to love? Everything is spiced perfectly with cinnamon, nutmeg, and all of the flavors of the season. There are unlimited excuses to get together with family and friends to celebrate [...]

cranberry lemon swirl pancakes

By | 2015-03-31T13:40:09+00:00 December 11th, 2014|Breakfast, Recipes|

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

By | 2015-03-31T13:40:11+00:00 November 30th, 2014|Breakfast, Recipes|

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 [...]

By | 2015-04-01T08:41:31+00:00 August 11th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

This past week, Rusty and I took a trip down to Southern California to catch up with great friends at Deuce Gym in Venice, stay with my amazing cousin in the Cactus Casa, and have a blast celebrating our wonderful friends’ wedding. It was a treat to say the least! This trip reminded me of [...]

fluffy fudgey brownies and why the ones you love most are the hardest to help

By | 2015-04-01T08:41:32+00:00 July 17th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

I have been blessed with a pretty outstanding family. My parents are just the best, and I couldn’t have asked for a better childhood, or adulthood for that matter. My mom is the most selfless person I know, and my dad comes over just to hang out with my husband, which makes my heart so [...]

the joy of food, fourth fun, and a guest dessert recipe!

By | 2015-04-01T09:16:58+00:00 July 6th, 2014|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes, The Mind|

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! Holidays like yesterday are such a wonderful opportunity to spend time with the ones we love and to truly appreciate all of the blessings in our lives. In my opinion, one of the most important aspects of any holiday or celebration is sharing delicious food [...]
