N’Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough (Lentil)

I wanted to create a snack that was both healthy and indulgent. The result is a not-overly-sweet edible cookie dough with protein and fiber benefits added from the red lentil base and reduced fat content from avoiding nut flours. The spices, extract flavor, and mix-ins can all be swapped out to create other flavors, but … Continue reading N’Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough (Lentil)

Sage Raisin Chicken Meatballs

These chicken meatballs (right side of the image above) are going to pair well with an earthy, salty sauce. I personally wouldn't add them to a tomato-based sauce. I think they could even do well with an alfredo-inspired sauce. I did not take structured notes for the sauce I made, but I basically just blended … Continue reading Sage Raisin Chicken Meatballs

Asian Beef Balls

I was able to write down an accurate recipe for the meatballs, but the sauce and rest of the meal was from the heart (aka no notes). Here's some of the details for those comfortable without recipes: 3 diced bell peppers (red, orange, and yellow), 1 bag of bok choy, chopped ginger root, diced shallots, … Continue reading Asian Beef Balls

You can obviously throw it out and start over, if you wish. However, we all know the pain this causes us when a … Continue reading How to Save Burnt-Flavored Yogurt

Homeopathic Methods

Update (10.23.18): I ended up taking a round of antibiotics because the infection went to my deeper sinuses causing no common sinus infection symptoms, just some pain in my cheek. After being diagnosed with UC and reaching remission, I've been terrified of the moment I may need to take oral antibiotics. Not only do I … Continue reading Homeopathic Methods

Ranch Dressing

I decided to make a ranch dressing in preparation for making chicken, bacon, & ranch pizza. Below is the recipe I ended up with. I am sure I will post alterations to this at a later date, but for now: enjoy! Notes: B I used primal kitchen avocado mayo and whole milk dripped/strained yogurt. If … Continue reading Ranch Dressing

Hair Care Review: Living Proof

I've recently become obsessed with Living proofB hair products. I have always had long and healthy hair - despite countless color applications and processing. Back in May of 2017, I had to cut my hair short because, I believe, the round of prednisone I was on for two months destroyed it. It could also be … Continue reading Hair Care Review: Living Proof

Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie

This one is too good not to have its own post off of Instagram. It's filling and gave me a needed protein boost. Enjoy!
