summer stone fruit caprese salad

Stone fruit season is my favorite!  (Stone fruits = peaches, plums, nectarines, cherries, apricots, etc…) You can make this salad with any stone fruit. Really. But I love a tart plum and a sweet peach because they contrast each other beautifully. Serves 4 Ingredients 3 nectarines or peaches, sliced 4 plums, sliced 1 container baby tomatoes,…

raw coconut oat milk

This new vegan milk has become a fast favorite at The Source.  We’re used to seeing nut milks in place of dairy milks. But what if you’re allergic to nuts and not into soy? Enter oat milk. (If you want pure oat milk, use 1/2 cup oats and take out the coconut flakes.) I love…

paleo almond bread

I love this paleo almond bread because I can pack extra protein in it, and it’s super easy to grab on the go. I load mine up with extra collagen, and I actually freeze it and then take it with me when I travel cross country. It’s super easy to make – just put everything…

stuffed mushrooms

I always know I’ve created something extraordinarily lovable when I see unusual behavior around the food.  Like when all of the meat-eating men at a party can’t stop eating the vegan tapa! That’s what happened with these stuffed mushrooms. I love these because they’re tasty, filling, and they have that meaty mouth feel.  Of course…

cauliflower ice cream

I love this ice cream because it’s all veggies and no fruit… and because I love tahini. It might seem weird to put tahini in your ice cream, but believe me, you’re gonna love it.  I love to stir in the blue majik at the end, and then top it with cacao nibs, seeds, coconut,…

It’s never too late for self love.

I meant to post this yesterday, but it was a busy day at The Source, and the truth is that it’s never too late for self love. Whether you are still basking in the energy of love that was so present yesterday, or you’re glad to be past Valentine’s day,  you can treat yourself to…

super meals to keep you nourished

It’s holiday season and you probably have lots of parties to attend. Of course it’s always fun to be festive, and you always want to be polite and eat the food that is served to you – – but how do you maintain a healthy body, mind, and spirit when you’re not in charge of…

peppermint cacao fudge

Our Healthy Holidays Class on Thursday was so much fun. I love when people are happy to learn my non-traditional holiday recipes, and when they ask me tons of questions. We ended with this peppermint cacao fudge, and it’s safe to say we had a class full of happy eaters! (This delicious fudge is paleo,…

super simple banana “ice cream”

I taught a private cooking class last night for a fun group, and our final course was this “ice cream.” We discovered it really is best right out of the blender, so make this one right when you need it. I freeze my bananas whole inside their peel, then when I need them, I just…

cauliflower oatmeal (paleo)

You asked for it, so here it is: the paleo cauliflower oatmeal we made at the AIP class with Carly.  You probably know this, but I love to get veggies in whenever possible, and I’m not huge on carbs unless I need them for exercise. Oh, and hot cereal is one of my favorite treats….

Collagen Date Balls

You know I love to make healthy, natural, easy snacks. Why should it be hard to enjoy a treat? These collagen date balls have protein AND reduce waste by using nut pulp from making nut milk. There are a few steps involved, but they’re pretty easy. See below. Ingredients 1 cup date paste* 2 cups…

paleo chocolate brownie

I made this as a cake for my moms birthday and was a huge hit! I wanted to make something high in protein and low in sugar, so I used monk fruit sweetener and dates.  If you don’t mind the sugar, you can substitute 1 cup coconut sugar for the dates and monk fruit.  This…
