Peanut Butter Cup Macaroons (Low Sugar, Gluten and Grain Free!)

August 3, 2013

Last week, right before my birthday weekend, it occurred to me how different it is to be single and living in a studio apartment compared to my old life (the opposite of that). My college friend, Jenn, was coming to visit from Florida and I was really excited—we had a good chuckle over our dorm-style-living [...]

Almond Maple Macaroons

February 11, 2013

I made these when I was staying at my Mom’s house and they’re amazing… I made them again recently, but for some reason did not take pics. I’ll just include the original pic, even though they are in ball-shape instead of macaroon-shape. They work either way! Almond Maple Macaroons Mix: 1 cup coconut 3/4 cup [...]

December 31, 2012

This feels like a random combination of content for a post, but I’m pretty sure if I don’t just talk about it all in one post, something will get neglected later… Yogi Clothing I was sent some great stuff by the company to try out and wear… and I want to show it to you! [...]

Orange Apricot Coconut Macaroons (or Truffles)

May 29, 2012

Sugar free, grain free….easy, and not many ingredients. That’s just how I do things. I was really surprised about how well these truffles/macaroons turned out. They really can be two different things, depending on if you dip or drizzle the chocolate! These do not need to be baked or dehydrated (in fact, I think that [...]

Dark Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Truffles – Grain/Gluten free, Dairy Free, No Sugar Added…

March 20, 2012

I’ve always been a fan of dense chewy freezable (but eatable right out of the freezer) macaroons and truffles…. In the past, I always made the standard raw food community blond and chocolate macs, but I just reviewed that old recipe and discovered that it has an entire cup of maple syrup in it. In [...]

Saturated Fat Benefits and Coconut Cream Mousse

December 17, 2011

I love all things coconut. Coconut is super high in saturated fat. I’ve learned so much about saturated fat over the last few years—the nutritional scape goat villain of the last few decades turns out to be not at all what I thought. Did you know that saturated fat studies (you know, the ones that [...]

Giveaway: Emmy’s Organics Macaroons and Granola!

May 1, 2011

It’s no secret around here that I love macaroons. I’m a huge fan of coconut products, and once bought 25lbs of raw unprocessed coconut flakes because I didn’t think about how much that actually was (it was on sale online at Wilderness Family Naturals! …Note: I also almost bought this again recently, knowing how much [...]

Taking Charge, Investigating Health Mysteries…and Why PIP?

February 19, 2011

One of my foremost goals in wellness coaching is to empower people to take responsibility for their own health and happiness. Often, I feel like I should have a degree in psychology instead of health because I also notice the range of perceptions by people about what role they play in their health. My dream [...]

Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream

June 12, 2010

I’ll keep this post short and simple and sweet—just like the recipe! Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream (coconut milk + vanilla + a dash of guar gum + a dash of xanthan gum + sweetener) blended in the blender and then put in an ice cream maker or frozen in the freezer. You can leave out [...]
