Rustic Potato Leek Soup
I developed this recipe during the cold winter months, when I wanted some good comfort food that would support my health. As you can see, it's chalk full of healthy ingredients that are especially good for conditions like candidiasis or when the immune system is low, maybe while fighting a cold or infection.
Leek & Swiss Chard Quiche*
This recipe is certainly a crowd pleaser! It's perfect for a hearty breakfast and can be doubled to last throughout the week. It's so delicious that no one can ever believe that it's gluten-free! Like all of the recipes that I share, it's full of health-promoting ingredients. This recipe, in particular, is very alkaline for the body.
Leah's Loaded Granola Bars*
These granola bars are a real treat and very easy to make! I love recipes that don't require too much work and that give me a lot of bang for my buck! While there are many healthy ingredients in these bars, the steps are easy. After a little time in the kitchen, you'll have plenty to go around all week! Adults and kids alike, love these granola bars.
Quinoa Confetti Salad*
This beautiful salad is perfect for either an appetizer or an entrée. It's an easy and festive dish to take to parties or potlucks, sure to get you compliments, for both flavor and visual appeal. Besides all the vegetables in the salad, that are rich in micronutrients, vitamins, minerals, and alkalinity, the salad is also a good source of protein, healthy fat, and fiber.
Leah's Lentil Soup*
Who doesn't love a warm soup, on a cold, winter day! Not only is this soup delicious and filling, it's so simple to make and one of the cheapest too! It's good before a meal or as an entire meal itself. It can also be added to a grain, like brown rice, barley, or buckwheat, but is certainly just as filling alone. The spices will keep you warm too! Take a look!
Creamy Cashew Sour Cream
This dairy-free sour cream is super easy to make, so easy, in fact, that it only takes minutes! Not only is it delicious, but it's very nutritious. Unlike dairy sour cream, which is acidic, this one is very alkaline for the body, keeping disease and sickness at bay, also a source of probiotics. This basic recipe is a staple in my house, a go-to when I need this condiment.
Sweet Potato Soufflé Smoothie &
Carrot Cake Smoothie
These dairy-free smoothies are great for the fall and winter seasons. They're so delicious you'll think you've made a souffle or cake and put it in the blender! They're packed with nutrients and make the perfect fall treat, whether enjoyed as breakfast or a snack. I especially love to enjoy them on the warmer fall and winter days we have here in Florida.
Chilled Summer Gazpacho
If you've never had this Spanish summer classic, you're in for a real treat! Not only is this summer soup cooling and refreshing, it's also loaded with antioxidants to help keep you looking and feeling younger! The first time I had this soup in Spain, it was served as a drink. I was told it was like spicy V-8, but boy was I in for a treat! "Move over, V-8! I've got something way better!" This is my husband's homemade recipe. Salud! (Translation: Health!)
Cool As A Cucumber Mint Salad
Both the stars of this recipe are great ways to stay refreshed and cool down when the heat starts rising outside. This simple yet delicious salad makes a great appetizer or the perfect side dish for an outside gathering. As you eat mindfully, try to see how many flavors you can taste in just one bite.

Refreshing Virgin Mojito (Alcohol & Sugar-Free)
While real mojitos can be a hazard to your health, they certainly are delicious! With this virgin recipe, you'll stay hydrated and won't have to worry about all the side effects of the added sugar and alcohol.
Sweet & Hearty Salsa
This delicious salsa has a full-bodied, robust flavor that makes you keep going back for more! Of all the salsa combinations I've tried, this one is my favorite, every bite bursting with flavor! Since it's full of fiber, protein and fat, this succulently delicious dip can easily serve as a meal, keeping you fueled for hours. A true crowd pleasure, indeed: every time we serve this dish, we get requests for the recipe!
Get ready to lick your lips between bites, it's so good!
Savory Potato Salad
In a world afraid of carbs, it's hard to imagine that potato salad could actually be good for you! Potato starch, like some other starchy carbohydrates, turns to a resistant starch when cooked and cooled, which means it "resists digestion" until it reaches the small intestine, making it great for blood sugar levels and a healthy pre-biotic to feed the probiotics in your gut. Red potatoes provide a good source of potassium and vitamins C & B6. They can also help boost serotonin and dopamine, improving your mood! So help yourself to a serving of this delicious potato salad, guilt-free!
Remember: whenever possible, always use ingredients that are...
YOU'RE WORTH IT!
