When creating healthy baking recipes, I usually find a basic recipe on the back of a flour bag and work off of that. It helps to know how much to start with to make a serving. I use whole wheat spelt flour which is much easier for the stomach to digest than regular flour. Spelt flour also helps boost the body’s metabolism and—ready for this?—aids in the creation of sex hormones! Don't be afraid of the whole wheat flours either; taste is not compromised!
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than creating your own sultry chocolate dessert. Traditionally, we tend to give our loved ones conversation hearts, boxes of chocolate, or truffles. Perhaps it’s the aphrodisiac effect the chocolates have on our bodies or perhaps it’s the sweetness that is presents.
Fruit salads are great for breakfast or for a refreshing afternoon snack. But when they’re enjoyed as a dessert, they’re mainly topped with whipping cream, yogurt, or chocolate sauce. This coconut cashew cream is a delicious alternative to the usual toppings you would add to your fruit salad.

Want a delicious dip for your next party? This dip is guaranteed to be a touchdown! It’s fantastic with blue corn chips, crackers, or spread on bruschetta. I like to double the recipe for larger gatherings, but it can easily be cut in half for a smaller portion.
Energy bars are an amazing way to get some quick energy, loads of nutrition, healthy calories, and above all they can be made within a few minutes and with any combination of nuts, seeds, and fruits of your choice. Two of my favorite energy bar recipes are Macadamia Coconut Crunch and Cashew Chia Bars.
An absolute staple for anyone needing food in a hurry: hummus! There are endless varieties you can make, as well as endless ways to use it. I keep a stash in my freezer to tap into when I have little time for food prep or when last minute guests arrive. I even take some with me when I travel.
Thai food and Asian inspired dishes (like yummy nori rolls and seaweed salad) are some of my absolute favorite meals to eat. A lot of these dishes are also naturally plant-based and gluten free! There tends to be a bigger focus on rice based (instead of wheat based) foods in these cultures, and in dishes where meat is used, it is typically easy to turn them into veggie only dishes
Roasted beets are like candy to me, and this oh-so-pretty salad is a hit with most everyone. It can be served in numerous ways, including over a bed of cooked grains such as quinoa or freekeh. If you don’t have a spiralizer simply omit or shred beets instead. It serves 4 yet you may want to double the recipe so you have leftovers. It’s that good and sure to become a favorite. If you do double the recipe, don’t dress with the vinaigrette until ready to enjoy.
