Coconut Rice from Aim True

  As promised on the Festival Cookies with Liz Moody episode of Free Cookies, I give you: COCONUT RICE! A few updates and pieces of advice on this recipe (found on page 186 of Aim True): You can use light or full fat coconut milk in this recipe. Obviously full fat is super creamy and […]

Homemade Grain-Free Tortillas (+ stuff to put on them)!

Long live the flour tortilla — the perfect fluffy vehicle for all delicious foods desiring to be swaddled. Of course, these days gluten and flour aren’t always the popular choice. I’ve opted for corn tortillas only to longingly stare at someone’s traditional burrito, dreaming of the pure bliss that is experienced with each bite. Nothing else […]

‘Cure Me’ Chicken, Kale + White Bean Soup

  ‘Tis the season for everyone to be sick. Seriously—it’s a war zone out there full of aggressive germs with no mercy. I’ve been personally fighting off a mini sinus infection, and knew I could knock this out through good food, a ridiculous amount of neti pot-ing, and homeopathic approaches. I’ve been pounding my sinus […]

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

I would happily eat ice cream everyday for the rest of my life. If I could deal with dairy. But I can’t, which used to make me incredibly sad. So sad that the ice cream maker that arrived as a wedding present last year almost seemed like a cruel joke. That is, until I decided […]

Coconut Cream Fruit Bowls

    My Sweet Tooth’s Hero!   I’m more of a savory person than sweet, but when my sweet tooth aches, it aches hard! I keep chocolate bars around for those hankerings, but sometimes they just don’t hit the spot. I need something more purposeful. An actual dessert with a spoon instead of breaking off […]

Golden Beet Pasta with Okra

  Pantry Pasta to the Rescue! I had a full morning with very little fuel. I kicked off the day by teaching a local class for Under Armour at Belk, followed by a martial arts conditioning and sparring class that had me resembling a ripe, drenched tomato by the end of class. I ran a few […]

Sweet Potato ‘Pasta’ with Spicy Vodka Sauce

Different Than the Real Thing, Baby! . . . .and different is a good thing! I’ve gotta say, I’m in a pretty committed relationship with my spiralizer. Dr. Will Cole has me off grains for a while as we work on strengthening my digestion, so I’ve been replacing my deep affinity towards pasta with veggie noodles […]

Walnut Meat Tacos with Sun Dried Tomato Spread

Meaty Meatless Tacos!   I was recently getting my lashes done with the amazing Daniella Allen out of Charleston, SC. I basically lay there for an hour or so with my eyes closed, so we have ample time to talk about anything ranging from family life, travel, to recipes. She was going on and on […]

Wild Salmon in Sweet and Spicy Carrot Sauce

The Best of Two Worlds I was recently in New York speaking at an event for my management company. It was an amazing event with their fantastic clients (aka powerhouse women and athletes) followed by a delicious meal at my favorite place on earth (well, on my top 10 list): ABC Carpet & Home. We ate […]
