Fig Jam


Summer figs are so delicious, but sadly their season is quite short. Make your summer figs last longer by preserving them in this sweet (but unsweetened) jam.

Lemon Ricotta Sauce


This sauce is intended for use with pasta, ravioli or tortellini. I like to toss it with spaghetti and wilted spinach.

Campfire Cornbread


Unlike most cornbread recipes which are made with sugar or honey, this recipe is sweetened with corn. It’s also gluten free and dairy free!

Baked Potato alla California


For me, baked potatoes are major comfort food. They always hit the spot and fill me up. This veggie-topped baked potato incorporates a variety of fresh, nutrient-rich produce which makes a great dinner any night of the week.

Cheese-less Cheese Sauce


Lemon juice, roasted red peppers, almonds, nutritional yeast, and dried minced onion come together to make a mouthwatering sauce you’d swear has cheese in it.

Chai Green Smoothie


Tea is a great morning pick-me-up. It gives you a calm, focussed energy as opposed to the jitteriness and crash that often accompany coffee. This smoothie combines chai tea with spinach, banana and rice milk to make a low calorie drink that is high on nutrients and low on the twitch scale.

Scalloped Potatoes


Normally scalloped potatoes are slathered with butter and cheese while drowning in a sea of cream until there’s not much potato left to speak of. While undeniably delicious this is not a particularly healthy dish. My scalloped potato recipe is simply potatoes, garlic and vegetable stock. If that wasn’t healthy enough, I even slipped in a little broccoli.

Strawberry Jalapeño Jam


A little sweet and a little spicy, this jam tastes great on top of toasted rye bread or corn bread. Just like my strawberry jam, it is very low in sugar, and the coconut sugar means it is low on the glycemic index.
