What I Learned from Whole30

A month ago, we started Whole30. This means, we have officially completed 30 days of eating no added sugar or processed foods, and only foods with ingredients we could recognize. Although weight loss is a nice side effect, I’m amazed at the lifestyle change that took place in the last month and the mindfulness of food that comes with such an experience. The question that keeps coming to my mind is “Why didn’t I eat this way before this experiment?” How did I eat  ...

Vegan Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

The thought of a “healthy” dessert honestly makes me want to gag.  Why would you ever want to make something and sacrifice flavor and all enjoyment just so that it is good for you?  And we have all fallen victim to Pinterest’s yummy looking so called healthy sweets only to make them and realize they taste like, well, garbage.  So when I say I have found a healthy dessert to share, you can be sure it’s pretty amazing for me to advocate.  This  ...

Dairy Free Quiche

I am such a fan of the brunch club, y’all already know that.  And one of my favorite brunch foods is a good quiche (if you’re in the Boise area, A’Tavola serves the best one in my opinion!) But since becoming dairy free, you know the drill- it’s the same sob story I normally complain about, I had to cut that food out!  Or so I thought.  Since I made the dairy free pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving and fell in love with the dairy free crust, I figured there  ...

Dairy Free Almond Cranberry Scones

I feel like the only recipes I share on the blog are for breakfast foods, but it’s usually because I’m so excited that I have found a decent dairy free alternative that I have to post it!  That’s how I feel about these scones.  Becoming dairy free meant at every coffee shop or bakery, I have to turn down the yummy looking baked goods (unless I want an extremely fussy child and an upset tummy for myself).  So finding an alternative that I can have for said baked goods is  ...

A Dairy-Free Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!  This year I feel overwhelmed with how much my little family has to be thankful for.  2016 brought struggles, tears, lots of love, and baby giggles.  On the food side of things, I was nervous about planning a dairy free Thanksgiving meal.  How can you make mashed potatoes without sour cream goodness?  But for most of the recipes, rice milk or amond milk were used as substitutes and turned out pretty great!  My awesome mother in law made the  ...

Dairy Free Chocolate Almond Oatmeal

The hardest meal for me to eat dairy free is breakfast.  The days of good ol’ milk and cereal or a yogurt with fruit are gone!  And I can not seem to get into having cereal with any other type of milk.  So I have been playing around with some other options and I’m loving this version of oatmeal.  It keeps me full and is delicious!   1/2 c. rolled oats 1 c. water 1 T. nut butter of your choice 1/4 c. Dairy/Soy free mini chocolate chips 1. Microwave rolled  ...
