Homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza
 Finally found a gluten-free (only brown rice and potato starch) pizza crust in the store today and had to jump on it. Usually most pizza crusts have sugar and other preservatives, and pre-made gluten-free, dairy-free pizzas have said ingredients, mushrooms and/or tomatoes. Sadly, my candida diet doesn't include any of those. Dan and I both enjoyed this and will definitely ...more»

Turkey and Veggie (garbage bowl) Salad
Because people were asking what was in my salad here you go: I got home from work last week and the last thing I wanted to do was cook.

Turkey and Brown Rice Taco Bowl with homemade fresh Guacamole
After walking up and down the aisle at the grocery store trying to find gluten-free pizza crust or even a full gluten-free dairy-free pizza that did not have tomatoes (not on the Candida Diet), we decided to give up eating pizza for lunch during the Patriots vs Ravens play-offs game. Instead, we opted for healthy turkey tacos. Since I'm not a ...more»

Tonight's dinner was all vegan - and AMAZING. Dan's mom sent us a zucchini spiral-er in the mail and it arrived today. Of course, we had to try it. It's super easy to use and assuming it's fairly inexpensive to buy on Amazon. The dish below had a lot of great flavors and the avocado pesto gave it a great ...more»
Healthy snacks.
"Healthy" snacks are hard to find when you're on a strict diet - or at least trying to eat healthy. I must admit that my weakness is chips and fries. I recently switched to eating these snacks - dried/dehydrated/fried/baked - whatever they are, chips. At least they are not processed and that's a start. They taste amazing and not like ...more»
Good morning breakfast!
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I couldn't agree more. Ever since I've been on the Candida diet and have been eating hearty breakfasts (in order to take many pills and supplements in the AM), my body has been craving it. It's hard to find stuff to eat that has no gluten, sugar, ...more»
Get your fig on!
I grew up hating the idea of eating anything with figs that weren't Fig Newtons. As I got older, I never really bought figs, not sure why. Then one day I went to a friend's house and she served them in a salad. Delicious! My entire thought of figs changed in that instant. They were tender, juicy and delicious, and ...more»
The Big Egg – A complete and delicious breakfast idea!
I had an unexpected visit with all of my cousins this past weekend in Florida. While the circumstances weren't the best, the family and food surely helped brighten the day. The first morning we woke up at my cousin's house and made The Big Egg. Now, this isn't something that's hard to make. It takes minimal ingredients and the best ...more»
