I know I know, you either love or hate pumpkin, and this time of year it’s in everything. To be honest, there’s a time and place for pumpkin and I promise you this just might be it. This hearty and comforting curry is topped over coconut low carb rice and yes that's a thing. This recipe is so flavorful and on the table in less than 30 minutes and leftovers are that much better.

Spaghetti Squash with Meat & Mushroom Bolognese

Spaghetti Squash with Meat & Mushroom Bolognese

Prep Time: 25
Cook Time: 1 hour

One of my favorite winter meals, but to be honest I make it year round because it is so comforting and very satisfying. The meat sauce is a staple that I learned from my Pop and once you make it I promise your family will be begging for more!

Spaghetti squash is packed with fiber and vitamins like carotene and vitamin A, plus you do not need any special tools to make it into "spaghetti" you just use your fork.

Herb Spiced Lamb Pitas

Herb Spiced Lamb Pitas

This recipe screams summer and is perfect for a BBQ because it's EASY and all your amigos will want the recipe, I promise. At first I was confused why this recipe didn't tell you how to cook the lamb, then I figure out that you put the raw lamb mixture in the pita and what happens is the lamb cooks inside the pita, the fat will melt into the bread, creating a crunchy, vibrantly flavored meat sando that’s unlike anything you’ve ever had before, I stuffed these ones with a herbed yogurt sauce, thinly sliced red onions and heirloom tomatoes.

Not ALL meat is created EQUAL

Not ALL meat is created EQUAL

The alarming state of grain-fed meat we face today all started when cows stopped grazing in the pastures where they would eat anything green found in the wild (i.e. what they would eat naturally). As soon as humans altered their diet we started to notice unhealthy practices take place. Comparing grass-fed vs grain-fed is like looking at two completely different foods! Seriously, they are NOT even in the same realm.

Valentines Dinner Menu + Hangover free VINO

We are just a couple days away from the day that celebrated LOVE. What a better way to celebrate love then with healthy, delicious food. I have created a full menu plus recipes  so you can cook and enjoy at home. Each recipe is nutrient packed, but still feels like you are splurging on this special day.

 Can't wait to hear how you like it!


What to drink? I am VERY particular with what I drink when it comes to alcohol. I just end up feeling so horrible that its not even worth it anymore. BUT there is a company that I LOVE called DRY FARM WINES who has the ONLY Organic health focused wine club available.

Why DRY FARM WINE?

Dry Farm Wines curates only the highest quality natural wines from small, organic family farms that meet strict standards. So much of today's commercialized and processed wines have loads of sugars, molds, toxins and added preservatives.

 Have you ever had 1 or 2 glasses of wine and felt  horrible the next day? maybe a headache, brain fog, or nauseous,? Well, so many hidden things are in that bottle that most people are unaware of! When I indulge in my Dry Farm wine, I never feel hungover the next day! I think I am very sensitive to sugars and mold. 

BUY some wines today to step up your health game, you will thank me! Sending you lots of love. 

Superfood "Chili"

I am so excited to share this hearty recipe with you because it turned out amazing. We ended up eating the leftovers for dinner the next day and now looking back I should have poached an egg on top! This recipe is very nutrient filled, with robust flavors it is very satisfying for those cold winter days, I can't wait to make it on my next snow trip! I also made GF cornbread, GMO free of course, with lots of butter, recipe is still in the works, a little dry.

Cook bacon in the pot you will make your soup in. Cook bacon until crispy, remove to a plate. In oil from bacon, sauté onions until translucent 2-3 minutes. Add ground beef and spices and cook until browned. Add mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes,  jalapeños, broth, and cook for about 20-25 minutes at med- low temperature.

Add beans (I do not like to cook precooked beans too long or they get mushy) and then if you are using superfood see note below.

**Add Four Sigmatic mushroom powder about 5 minutes before serving, make sure heat remains at low temperature so you do not cook out the nutrients! USE CODE TVW2017 for a discount.

Top with greens, cheese, a dollop of Greek yogurt or nothing at all.
