Healthy gingerbread loaf made with whole wheat flour and packed with heavenly spices. This will make your house smell amazing and is perfect for brunch.

This weekend was LOVELY and I hope yours was similar.

On Friday, we stayed in and watched the movie Moneyball. I hadn’t seen it before but fell in love with the storyline.

Saturday was a busy day for us as many of you already know that we’re leaving this coming weekend for our honeymoon! I’ll be gone for 3 WEEKS in Australia & Hawaii so Tony and I spent A LOT of time doing research, booking hotels, and trying to figure out how we were going to make the most of our time there. Finally later Saturday evening we ventured out into the tundra for ice skating at the Park at Wrigley. If you haven’t been and live in Chicago, I highly recommend it (they have hot cocoa and food there too).

Adorable paleo gingerbread cookies made with coconut and almond flour. These grain free and gluten free cookies are the perfect treat for the holidays!

It’s day 3 of cookie week and I’m loving today’s spicy paleo gingerbread cookies!

When I was young I never really appreciated the deliciousness of gingerbread cookies. I was never one who enjoyed molasses cookies either. The flavor of molasses just wasn’t in the cards for a girl obsessed with pumpkin pie.

The softest grain free snickerdoodles with hints of cinnamon + sugar in every bite. These will be your new go-to snickerdoodle recipe!

I’m laying on our couch watching Tony eat a huge plate of my latest creation: vegan tofu nachos (recipe comin’ soon). The best part is that he has no idea that I made them with a healthy cheese sauce made from nuts, or that the ‘meat’ is actually tofu. This is exactly why I love doing what I do: I love helping people eat healthier and more nutritious without sacrificing taste.

And sometimes you need a cookie that’s the best of both worlds: both sweet and a little more nutritious.
