Blender Beet Juice

My favorite drink at the local juice bar is called Roots Remedy. It’s a lovely juice made of beets, apple, lemon, and ginger. I enjoy the way that it’s both refreshing and warming at the same time. The bright pink color the juice takes on from the beets is sensationally satisfying. If I close my eyes now, I can just see myself: the sun shining, a nice walk along the river, with a beet juice in hand.

The Secret to Staying Motivated

Time after time, I find that diet plays a much bigger role in body physique than exercise does. Sure, both are vital when it comes to living healthfully. But if you're wanting to look leaner without spending hours in the gym lifting weights or doing cardio, start paying attention to what type of food you are putting into your mouth.

Healthy Tangerine Orange Muffins

Muffins are one of those recipes that many people think is a healthy option, but more often than not, they are actually packed with empty calories. Most bakeries, cafes, and grocery stores use low quality all-purpose flour, unhealthy fats, and a day's worth of sugar. In today’s recipe, we are going to use only high quality ingredients to create a super moist muffin full of fiber and delicious citrus flavor perfect for the warm weather months ahead.

GAPS Friendly Rutabaga Fries

Rutabaga fries are my absolute favorite kind of fry! Not only are they GAPS Diet friendly, but rutabagas are high in vitamin C, zinc, potassium, and support digestive health as they are high in fiber and also stimulate bile production.

Make-Ahead Braised Cabbage and Bratwurst

A few months ago, my mom made kielbasa and cabbage for a gathering at her house. I thought it was out of this world. Shortly after, I was out for a run and because it was rainy and cold, by the time I got back to my parent’s house, I felt a chill in my bones. I heated up the kielbasa and cabbage and not only did it warm me up, but it made me feel so healthy and satisfied.

Apple Bacon Stuffed Chicken with Fennel

Fennel has a very distinct flavor, when eaten raw it is crunchy like an apple yet tastes like black licorice. When roasted, fennel becomes soft and a bit sweeter. Fennel and apple are an excellent flavor combination and tastes incredible when combined with the smokiness of the bacon.

3 Gluten Free No Bake Butter Bars

Repeat after me: Fat does not make you fat! Did you know good quality fat is actually the preferred source of energy for the body?  Think of your body’s energy as a fire and carbohydrates are the quick burning sticks and grass you use to start the fire and the logs are what maintain the fire for a long period of time. This is exactly how our bodies work!
