gluten free persimmon loaf

By | 2017-12-10T11:13:01+00:00 December 10th, 2017|A Little Sweet Tooth, Breakfast, Grab and Go, Health, Recipes|

I LOVE persimmons - persimmons with nut butter, persimmons in salads, persimmon muffins, persminis, and now, in what is potentially my new favorite persimmon thing: my gluten free persimmon loaf. This loaf is somewhere between a bread loaf and a blondie, with the perfect amount of sweet and a heartiness that leaves you feeling satiated [...]

creamy apple fennel soup

It's winter in California, which means that delicious apples are everywhere. For that reason, it's also the only time of year that I crave them. It's pretty impressive how the body can be so in tune with the seasons, even so much so that cravings follow suit. That crisp bite, the sweet aroma and flavor. Apples [...]

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 [...]

fermented farmers market chutney

This recipe is not only delicious, it just so happens to be beautiful too! What makes this chutney even more awesome is the story that inspired it. My husband and I love New Years Eve, but we don't love to celebrate like most. Instead, we make a point every year of getting "off the grid" [...]

creamy carrot and fennel soup, plus the power of “why?”

By | 2015-04-14T14:33:02+00:00 December 5th, 2014|Autoimmune Paleo, Recipes, Soups, Salads, Sides|

How often do you ask "why?" "Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers." - Voltaire As a kid I was constantly asking why (probably to the point where it was annoying). I was never content with "because I said so" or "because that's what everyone else is doing." I'm happy to say [...]

festive arugula salad

It seems like all summer long, I crave salads; it turns into a salad a day kind of season. Farmer's market is loaded with all kinds of veggies that are fresh, delicious, and just asking to be tossed in a bog bowl, dressed up nicely, and enjoyed in the sun. But what happens when the [...]
