Do you enjoy delicious pasta with a creamy sauce? I do! I had been seeing recipes for noodles made with zucchini, sweet potatoes, carrots and more. I wondered what they were like, but didn't have a spiralizer. Thankfully, my sister came to the rescue!
When I was growing up as a vegetarian, my mom used to buy a product called "Nuteena". It was a peanut butter based loaf that came in a can. Unfortunately, it seems that they no longer make it, but I missed it. I came up with this recipe and its pretty close to what my mom used to make.
I made it gluten-free and it came out just fine! I used the Trader Joe's brand gluten-free flour. Bonus: My husband loves it!
For a long time, fat was considered bad in any form and supermarkets were flooded with a variety of low-fat items. The truth of the matter is that they didn’t really do anything to improve health! Our bodies need fat to function properly. It just needs to be eaten in moderation and the right kinds of fat need to be consumed. Some fats are actually really good for you, some are kind of in-between, and others are downright bad for you!
I'm sure you've heard the buzz about fresh green juices. It seems everyone who's into health is drinking them! It can be a bit pricey to buy gree juices, but you can save a little money by making your own! The bonus is that you get a ton of nutrition and antioxidants in a serving of green juice. It is estimated that you get at least 5 servings of vegetables in a serving of juice! This is why I juice - my husband doesn't love to eat big salads like I do, and this is one way I can get lots of nutrition into him!
I checked my email and noticed that the theme for this last week's potluck was Healthy Food - trying to keep everyone's New Year's Resolutions going strong! Now, I always try to cook healthy foods, but I was still at a little bit of a loss as to what to make. (My husband was a huge advocate for PB&J sandwiches!) I finally landed on a recipe that I thought should fit the bill. (Original recipe here). Of course, I always modify my recipes to meet my specific dietary needs due to being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease (Low FODMAP diet plus vegan) and to meet my tastes! To make a long story short, I didn't bring any leftovers home and got lots of requests for my recipe. So, here it is, folks!

The thought of some delicious dark chocolate makes me smile! Throughout my life I can count on one hand the number of people I have met who don’t like chocolate. You may have read that dark chocolate has health benefits, but did you know its actually good for your digestion? It turns out the good bacteria, or probiotics, in your gut love cocoa as much as you do!
Do you love the aromatic, spicy flavor of ginger? I have to admit that I didn’t used to love it, but it has grown on me and now I love it! Did you know that ginger’s amazing flavor comes along with a host of health benefits?
Ginger and Digestive Health
The holidays can be a stressful time, but a large part of it may be self-inflicted. By changing how you set yourself up during the holidays, you can change your experience. By learning how to deal with difficult or challenging family members, you can cut down on a lot of the anxiety of the holidays.
There are always those family members who may be difficult to deal with. Remember to have realistic expectations, or maybe even no expectations. Accept those people for who they are. This will make you happier and them happier!
The holidays are not the time to have a confrontation. Avoid talking about “hot topics”. If there is a subject that needs to be addressed, talk about it after the holidays. If you feel like you need more help, talk to a respected confidant or counselor about family issues and how to deal with them. You can brainstorm with them or even try some role-playing.
If you would like more tips on how to survive the holidays, read my previous blog posts on this topic. Merry Christmas!
