Banana Bread Made With Coconut Flour

Banana Bread Made With Coconut Flour

TweetI had some bananas that were turning brown, so I wanted to try a healthy version of banana bread using coconut flour. Coconut flour is a great type of flour to use in baking because it’s very healthy for you.  It’s gluten free and high in fiber and protein – in fact, it has more protein and fiber than any other flour so it makes sense to try to use it whenever you can. The only problem that I have found is that it makes whatever you are baking come out a little on the dry side and rather dense.  The key to using it...

TweetAvocados are a wonderfully delicious fruit that are underutilized in todays diet.  They have a host of health benefits and a variety of nutrients and antioxidants that can boost your health tremendously.

Frozen Berry Coconut Smoothie

TweetWho doesn’t love berries? They’re delicious and have a huge amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. In fact, blueberries, have one of the highest antioxidant values of any food. If you care about your health, you should eat lots of berries and combining them into a smoothie is one way of accomplishing this. I like to keep frozen blueberries and raspberries on hand in the freezer just for this purpose. Sure, I like to eat fresh berries too, but they don’t keep very long in the fridge (especially the...

Chocolate Cake with Coconut flour and Coconut Oil

TweetThis cake is a great healthy alternative to regular chocolate cake.  Despite the coconut flour, coconut oil and coconut cream frosting the cake doesn’t taste like coconut at all! You can see the original recipe here but I made a few variations – replaced the butter with coconut oil and used turbinado sugar instead of brown sugar. For the frosting, I made coconut butter from this recipe and then I added in the following to sweeten and flavor it: 1 teaspoon powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 cup skim...

This recipes satisfies my goal for healthier eating by including turmeric and it also satisfied my goal of easy meals because...

Foods That Give You Energy

TweetWho doesn’t get tired in the middle of the day? I know I do sometimes. But grabbing a sugary soda or energy drink can actually be harmful to your health.

Luckily, there are a bunch of healthy foods you can eat that will help increase your energy: Soy Nuts Watermelon Skim...

White Bean Blondies Recipe

TweetHere’s a sneak peek from my book Healing Desserts. Blondies were always one of my favorites desserts so when I heard about this version made with beans I was intrigued. Can beans taste good in a dessert?  I was skeptical to say the least. Of course, I turned to Google to see what there was for recipes and I found several like this one, this one and this one.   I decided to kind of take the best from each and give them my own healthy twist that you can see below. Oh, and to answer the question… Yes, beans CAN taste...

Quinoa Spaghetti With Spaghetti Squash Recipe

TweetOne of my favorite foods is pasta, but pasta isn’t really all that healthy so I was pretty excited to discover that there is a pre made Quinoa Spaghetti made from quinoa flour and corn flour which tastes just as good as traditional pasta.  Yay!  Oh, and did I mention that it is totally gluten free? Of course, I like to have a heaping bowl of it, so I decided to pair it up with spaghetti squash so I could add some volume as well as nutrients and fiber to the dish.  They go together perfectly and it lets me load up a big...
