Mind Pump Ahoy! Keto Cacao Nib Cashew Cookies (Paleo / Vegan)

A few weeks ago, I published an episode of Actually Adultish with Adam and Sal from the Mind Pump podcast, which has been one of my all-time favorite podcasts for a long time. The hosts of Mind Pump – Adam, Sal, and Justin – are incredibly knowledgeable and have a ton of experience in the fitness industry. Their podcast addresses pretty much every health/fitness/diet trend and myth you could think of, and they cut through all of the BS in the industry to help people figure out what information they can actually trust. Basically, we have the same agenda. They’ve…

Chocolate Chip Coconut Zucchini Muffins (Paleo / Vegan / Sugar-Free)

When I first transitioned over to eating a healthier diet a few years ago, I became obsessed with baking healthy treats. I have always had a sweet tooth, and I probably always will. When I changed my diet, I was in college, and I was surrounded by people who ate cookies and muffins and cupcakes and ice cream all the time without thinking about it. At first, I was sad that I wouldn’t be able to do that anymore because of my food intolerances. Then, I turned to the Internet, and I discovered a whole new world. I spent hours…

Keto Cinnamon Fudge Avocado Brownies (Paleo)

The thought of sharing this brownie recipe with you brings an evil grin to my face because they are so delicious, it’s almost cruel. I’ve been plotting to make reaaaaallllly fudgey brownies for a long time now. I cannot even begin to explain to you how determined I was to make the perfect brownie. That’s my favorite type of brownie – the fudgier (is that a word?), the better. Honestly, if I’m making brownies for myself, I prefer them undercooked so that I get that “heavy” texture. Top it with some ice cream, and I’m in pure heaven. Creating a…

Sugar-Free Vanilla Coconut Collagen Cookies (Paleo w/ Vegan Option)

This week just happens to be Mind Body Green’s No Sugar Week, so I figured these incredibly delicious no-sugar cookies were very appropriate. MBG’s No Sugar Week has caused quite a stir on the Internet, but I won’t get into that here. I say, DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU.

Caffeine-Free Coffee Almond Banana Bread Muffins (Sugar-Free / Paleo / Low-FODMAP / SCD)

Since the moment these beauties first came out of the oven, I’ve been dying to share this recipe with you! These muffins got an overwhelmingly positive response from all of my taste-testers, so I have full confidence you will fall in love with them as well. Especially because they’re sugar-free! Since going on my anti-Candida/anti-food-intolerances diet, I’ve been really into  experimenting with sugar-free baking. I think that most people consume too much sugar. So many people feel dependent on sugar, whether or not they have Candida, and I really want to show people that you don’t need to add sugar or sweeteners to everything. There’s…
