Lentil & Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Having a family member going through chemotherapy has lead me down this trip of researching foods and fruits based on whatever mineral or vitamin that she is found to be lacking.

Portion control is key in assisting us in avoiding the unneeded side effects of foods that we consume in our daily meals.

Almond Quinoa Cookies (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Soft, slightly chewy. Best of all – no chocolate chips!! I am not sure why there are so many recipes for Quinoa cookies have chocolate chips in them. I much rather have nuts and/or dried fruits in them in order to fully enjoy the full health benefits of Quinoa. This recipe does not include any dried fruits and is not sweet. So, if you rather … Continue reading Almond Quinoa Cookies (Gluten & Dairy Free)
