6 day sugar buster bootcamp

When you struggle with a sugar addiction, getting started with a sugar detox plan from someone who knows how to overcome it the right way makes all the difference. ************************************************************ Get started with the 6 Day Sugar Buster Bootcamp now. ************************************************************* I used to underestimate the way added sugars were impacting my health, yet deep down, I knew I could be feeling much better by: having more energy experiencing better mental clarity reducing bloat and digestive discomfort having less anxiety. When God first started telling me to detox from sugar, I resisted the thought because it felt overwhelming and scary. …

no bake chocolate mint squares (vegan, no added sugar, paleo, gluten free)

.   There are three things I have to do before I start writing a blog post: get my pictures purdied up, make sure my nails are clipped short and fix my hair in a ponytail. The pictures are essential. The other two? Just a couple quirks that minimize distractions for me. LOL Now that those are out of the way, let’s chat about these no bake chocolate mint squares.     They are a minty take on a couple of recipes I frequently use for desserts and are fast and simple to whip up. The only downside, perhaps, is …

sunshine bliss balls (vegan, dairy free, gluten free, no added sugar)

  It’s funny, but often I get my recipe inspiration when I have an event or theme to work with. Probably because the possibilities are endless when it comes to dreaming up recipes and it’s one way of narrowing things down. LOL I created these Sunshine Bliss Balls as I was preparing to head to Cincinnati a few weeks ago for a Bible Study Fellowhship leaders retreat. If you’re not familiar with BSF, it’s an international Bible study program and one that has been an ah-mazing resource for me and thousands of others around the world. Anyway… Whenever I travel …

easy weeknight meal: sweet potatoes with cheesy pistachio dust (vegan, gluten free)

  As a food blogger, it can be tempting for me to post oodles of complicated, fancy recipes that have a big wow factor. Because those are the things that get a lot of splash and attention. But, that’s not reality. As a mom of four and business owner two times over, I don’t have time most days for complicated and fancy. I’m guessing you don’t either. Which is why I’m sharing more of a meal idea than a “recipe” with you today. It’s an easy weeknight meal that is uncomplicated, but tasty. Simple, but satisfying. Light on ingredients but …

rainbow brownie pizza (vegan, no added sugar, gluten free)

  Rainbows and bright colors have been on my mind lately because here in Ohio, this time of year can be really hard. Those of you living in northern and cloudy climates who struggle with winter blues will know what I mean. #wink Which is why the more color I see on my plate the better, like this recipe I shared last week. And this rainbow brownie pizza? It’s like a sweet reminder of the promise that summer is coming.   So let’s dig in, shall we?   To make the rainbow brownie pizza, I started with a base made …

rainbow plate with roasted chickpeas and citrus garlic tahini sauce (vegan, gluten free)

  As a food blogger, I want to believe that everyone will absolutely love what I create and share. One hundred percent. All the time. This, of course, is not realistic…as my family frequently reminds me. Take this rainbow plate, for example. Yum, right?! Except if you don’t like red peppers, sweet potato, chickpeas, kale and/or eggplant, roasted, seasoned or dressed but not disguised in a soup or sauce. Since I happen to love all these veggies, this is a plate I want to dive into on repeat. I was hoping my family would want to do the same. My …

chia cherry goji berry energy bites (vegan, gluten free, paleo)

  Whether you need a quick pick-me-up as you’re on the go or a little something to hold those sugar cravings at bay, these chia cherry goji berry energy bites are just the thing. Fortunately, they are much easier to whip up than they are to say (LOL) with just seven ingredients. Since the name is kinds of a mouthful, I decided to shorten it to “Bing-Go Bites” for the bing cherries and goji berries. So much easier – and fun! – to say. I created this recipe while I was packing for our mission trip to the Dominican Republic …

blueberry banana bread bars (vegan, no added sugar)

  I love hard-working recipes – especially ones that can work as breakfast, dessert or a snack! And these blueberry banana bread bars are perfect for all three. I have a particular soft spot for these since it’s one of the first recipes I tried (thanks to the inspiration of Angela’s muffin tops recipe at Oh She Glows) that didn’t require any added sugar. And didn’t end up a yucky gummy mess which can happen when you remove the dairy and the added sugar. These blueberry banana bread bars are just one of the recipes featured in my 7-day plant-based …

festive vegan yogurt parfaits with no added sugar berry jam

  Mmm, mmm, mmm. Aren’t these pretty? I love the colors in these vegan yogurt parfaits and the combination is so festive! While yogurt parfaits usually are associated with breakfast, I prefer them as a snack or dessert…I have a hard time parting with my go-to oatmeal bowl each morning. LOL Plus these are so pretty, I think they can hold their own on the dessert table and offer a refreshing alternative to heavier desserts. To make them, grab your favorite non-dairy, no added sugar yogurt (I used a cashew-based one here), whip up a batch of granola (I recommend …
