Freezer Cookie Nuggets (Raw/Gluten-Free)

Roasted Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi is an often-overlooked winter veggie that deserves more attention. I find it delicious whether raw or roasted, boiled or mashed.

Healthy Snack Ideas

Full disclosure— I’m always hungry and I love to eat. Here are the snacks I’ve been munching on to keep me satisfied.

Crunchy Arugula Combo

I always seem to have these ingredients on hand and this recipe easily lends itself to substitutions. You switch the cheese type, add some chicken or turkey, change out the greens or herbs.
