Another great recipe submitted by Katherine Lawrence of www.plantbasedhealth.com
This stew was inspired by a vacation—it was time to clear out the fridge, stoke up on immune boosting beta-carotene and have leftovers in the freezer upon our return home.
I love thick, hearty chili in cold weather. It’s always so satisfying and filling, so it makes a great comfort food…especially when served my favorite way: over warm grits!
Coconut Lemon Macadamia Candies are full of flavor in a tiny candy size. Family tested & kid approved!
A healthy recipe for a traditional holiday treat.
With or without the pecan topping, this decadent-tasting pumpkin pie is sure to be a crowd pleaser during the holidays…or anytime you get a craving for a treat! (NOTE: The pecan topping, obviously, adds fat. You can make a truly fat-free pie by using a fat-free crust and skipping the topping.)

A little while back she also posted a link I shared on my blog’s facebook page to an article/video by Dr. Gregor about treating multiple sclerosis with diet. He gives an overview of Dr. Swank’s pioneering work, stressing how those diagnosed with […]
