Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

One of my youngest clients, Sarah, dubbed this lemony breakfast treat the ‘polka-dot muffin’. To save time, double the amount of batter and freeze half a batch in paper muffin liners. When you’re ready for another fresh- baked round, pop them into a muffin pan and bake in your pre-heated oven!

Eggplant Manicotti

Manicotti, which means “muff” in Italian, are idea for filling with cheesy ricotta. Slices of eggplant mimic this pasta-free way to enjoy the same flavors you’ll find in the original recipe. Adding kale to the filling boosts nutrition, lowers calories and fat.

Roasted Lemon Asparagus

Asparagus pokes through the cool dirt of early spring though it can be found in grocery stores year-round. Look for the thick stalks for this recipe, or if you are using pencil-thin asparagus decrease the cooking time by 2-3 minutes.

Chocolate Toffee Grahams

Chocolate Toffee Grahams

These are a fast and simple treat, adapted from a recipe my granny used to make. Fun and fast, it’s the ideal recipe to make for an impromptu party or an easy, rewarding project to do with kids.

Kale Chips

Homemade Kale Chips

Making kale chips is fast, easy, and cost effective. Any type of kale works, just be sure that your washed kale leaves are dry before adding olive oil for ultimate crisp chips!

Peppermint Biscotti

These festive cookies are so sweet but low in fat. Crunchy cookies with a hard candy coating make the perfect treat for kids with a mean sweet tooth or even prancing reindeer!

Superfood Slimming Salad

Peanut Pomegranate Salad

Whether I’m looking for an energy boost, or a tasty unique meal, Superfoods always come to mind because they do both best.

Gluten-Free Lasagna

This is no ordinary lasagna, it’s gluten-free and fortified with two of my favorite superfoods, mushrooms and kale. Gluten-free diets can be unhealthy when you don’t include veggies, but this one dish meal has it all.
