Roasted Turmeric Chickpeas


I love roasting chickpeas for a healthy snack. With their high protein and fiber content, chickpeas make for a great snack. They help to control blood sugar levels, improve digestion, increase satiety, and are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. I tossed my chickpeas with turmeric, cumin, rosemary, black pepper, pink salt, and avocado oil. The flavors came together so nicely.

Roasted Turmeric Sprouted Cashews


I absolutely love cashews. Their creamy and soft texture makes for a fun and yummy snack. Cashews are loaded with healthy benefits and are a nutrition powerhouse. Cashews are rich in antioxidants, protein, vitamins (B, C, E, and K), and essential minerals (calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and sodium). These nutrients found in cashews help to reduce the risk of diabetes, boosts bone and oral health, prevents and reduces risk of anemia, can help prevent gallstones, and boosts immune system health.

Wild Crab Stuffed Mushrooms


I am always prepared when it comes to holiday parties, friends and family gatherings, or even meal preparing for myself. I was inspired by a conversation I had with a family member about crab stuffed mushrooms. The conversation was about using the best breading to make this recipe happen. A light bulb went off in my brain. Coincidentally, I found these amazing chickpea crumbs, made only of chickpeas! How great is that? I shared my healthy find, which happens to be full of fiber, protein, and deliciousness. My family asked me to prepare a dish and bring it to Christmas dinner. I was more than happy to!
I love this hors d’oeuvre because it is loaded with important nutrients, protein, and fiber to keep you satiated for a longer amount of time, allowing you to eat and crave less throughout the rest of the day. This helps you to keep on track by making smart and healthy choices. This dish is also great as a side to your well-balanced plate.

Made with extra love.
What else is there to do on a snow day other than bake some healthy treats! My fiancé and I have a deal. He shovels and I bake. I think it’s a win-win. This snowstorm was named bomb-cyclone. What a name, right?! It just makes me want to stay in and cozy up with a nice cup of tea and par-take in my favorite home-y activities.
I was recently asked to come up with a recipe without grains and nuts. Allergies can make it tough to find a healthy good treat. Well, this is why this cookie was born!
So simple to make and really delicious. Each cookie has only 3g of sugar! The banana keeps it moist, as baking with coconut flour can be quite tricky. This took me a few tries, so I am hoping you will enjoy this recipe! I do!
Enjoy these cookies with a cup of coconut milk for dunking or on its own.
xx This recipe was made with lots of love. xx
