Why I love the gluten-free “fad” diet, and other Celiacs should too

Unless you’ve been living in a tent for the past couple years (can I come?!), you’re probably very aware of the gluten-free fad diet explosion, to the point of being annoyed. A huge percentage of people are doing their best to be gluten-free, advocating the diet’s benefits, and loading up the cart with dozens of […]

1 Year Gluten-Freeversary

It’s official. On this day one year ago I had just gotten the Celiac Disease diagnosis from my doctor, and I was told that the only treatment was to eat a gluten-free diet forever. Scary…at the time. I had forgotten, but I did blog about it after my diagnosis. I also like to replace “Celiac […]

Edamame means snack time!

If I haven’t already professed my love for edamame here…I will do so now. I FREAKING LOVE EDAMAME!!! It tastes amazing, and is ridiculously healthy. Though I love it with the shell still on, shelled edamame is delicious too. I usually eat it as a side, mixed in with rice or noodles, or as a […]

Rainbow Quinoa

I am so excited to share this recipe, because I not only made quinoa for the first time, but I completely made up the recipe! True, this is not very complex and there are not too many spices involved, but having never cooked quinoa before it could have turned out disastrous. The only *oops* part […]

Spinach and Black Bean Quesadilla

I’m a quesadilla nut. I’m not sure why but something about the crispy tortilla and melty cheesy goodness just makes me drool…to the point where I used to make quesadillas for breakfast…and lunch…and dinner. Thankfully I’m out of that phase, but quesadillas are still a go-to quickie meal for me. The spinach and black beans […]

Asian-Style Tofu & Edamame

This dinner is very simple, very easy, and not too fancy. Very few ingredients are involved, but it’s so delicious (and vegan)! It’s no secret how much I love tofu, but I love edamame just as much. It is so healthy, easy to make, and tasty with nothing more than sea salt. Ingredients: 1 Package […]

I am the worst offender when it comes to being a lazy chef. I always want a delicious, non-frozen, healthy meal from scratch, but sometimes it is just way too hard to get off the couch. Today was one of those days, so I solved my paradoxical food problem with the Southwestern Bowl. This recipe […]
