A couple weeks back, I came down with a cold. It started the first day of spring, believe it or not, and so I used what energy I had to find a couple products that would help me through the week and get me to the weekend healthy and ready to enjoy the promised spring weather! If you read the title, you can see that I chose all of remedies to be drug free. So, if you’re interested in how to get over a cold- naturally (and yes, I mean without DayQuil, NyQuil, and all the other crap that doesn’t actually help but just hides your symptoms) then read on my friends- I’ve got the goods.
Hey All! This healthy sweet potato breakfast quiche couldn’t have come to me at a better time. With a full weekend of apartment hunting, Brett and I needed a quick and filling meal to get us through the day and this recipe came through big time!

Make sure to scroll to the bottom for the full recipe- I now make it so that you can print the recipe straight off the blog so check it out and let me know your thoughts! Now- let’s get cookin’-
Valentine’s Day is coming up! For those of you looking to spice up your day- I’ve concocted a quick, healthy Valentines’s day breakfast that is gluten-free & paleo!

This upcoming weekend is Super Bowl Sunday! Hooray Sports! I get a lot of questions around this time of the year, like “what can you eat?” or “is butter a carb?” (#meangirlsquote) But really, I do get asked quite a bit if I can enjoy the Super Bowl along with the rest of my friends. My answer to that is always -hell yes! The past couple of years we’ve been going to Brett’s friends house for the game, and they always put out an immense, almost entirely gluten-free spread. The first time they pulled this off, they knew almost nothing about my allergy- and to this I say- if they can pull it off on their first try, so can you! But this post is more than just easy gluten-free super bowl snacks, it’s a collection of some healthier, protein focused recipes that you can whip up without missing a play (or in my case, a commercial). Oh- and they’re all dairy free. HOW CAN THIS BE? You’ll see. I’ve also included a naughty surprise at the end as well as some drink ideas. Intrigued? Excited? … Salivating? Huddle up and let the recipes commence!
One of my Christmas presents from Sir Brett was a cooking class at The Wooden Spoon- a kitchenwares shop on Clark street that also offers incredible classes where you cook a three course meal and sip on wines paired with each dish. I will admit when I heard what we were doing I was nervous- a cooking class for someone strictly gluten-free? With people who may have not even heard of the allergy? Brett clearly did his research (shout-out to Amanda!) because this experience was not only delicious, but it was 100% gluten-free friendly- keep reading to find out how!
