Grain-free Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Ok, I finally gave in. Cauliflower pizza crust has been everywhere recently, and I have been a little hesitant to give it a shot for a few reasons. First of all, pizza is sacred. I’m all about healthifying recipes, but I have issues with messing too much with anything as perfect as pizza. Second, I [read more…]

I’m enjoying an amazingly relaxing (much needed) vacation with my family in Cabo this week! I’ll be back next week with new posts, but just wanted you to know that I’m still getting off my tush on vacation.

Kale Caesar Salad

Kale Caesar is SO hot right now. It’s on the menu at every trendy restaurant, disguised as the healthy choice. Don’t get my wrong, kale is amazing for you, but drowning in heavy dressing and covered in cheese, it’s only slightly healthier than the original. My version is not only way healthier but equally flavorful. [read more…]
