I'm on a mission to cook more for myself in order to save money, eat healthier, and reduce packaging. Now that I'm a gluten, soy, & sugar free diet I have to be more creative. Last night I put together a great dish with 3 elements - it was flavorful, satisfying, and extremely healthy.


Minted Quinoa with Pine Nuts, adapted from Whole Foods recipe:

I recently bought millet to cook with for the first time, and this dish was a perfect introduction. I love lentils and wanted to make something without gluten, soy, sugar, and oil - I succeeded. This easy and quick recipe has been adapted from The Way of Happy Woman.

Banana Mint Chip (Almost) Ice Cream


I should probably call this recipe Banana Mint Chip Chilly Cream, since it's not very icy. It doesnt really matter though - the consistency isn't what makes this dessert worth whipping up (literally), it's all about the flavors. Easy, quick, inexpensive, and guilt-free.

If you're wondering, "what is a frappucino", clearly you don't go to Starbucks, and I don't blame you. While their coffee and tea drinks are tasty, they're certainly not healthy - they're full of sugar and usually not organic. Plus, there are only a few vegan options (though they're working on that and have been adding more to the menu). I recently tried their soy frappucino (which by the way is a sugary, blended iced coffee drink) and while it was good, I felt super guilty knowing what was in it. But every now and then I crave that sugary coffee taste, so luckily there's a healthy option!
