Lemon Drop Energy Balls
For those of you who missed my Healthy & Delicious snacks class, I thought I'd post the class's favorite recipe- Lemon Drop Energy Balls! Rich in good fats and protein, this snack will keep you energized and satisfied with just 1 or 2 bites! It's also slightly tart and tangy, which reminds some people of lemon squares or desserts with lemon curd. I like adding maca root powder to my energy balls because it's great for regulating hormones (for men and women) and has been found
Mint is considered a carminitive, an herb that reduces gas and bloating. Mint has been used historically for dyspesia, nausea, IBS, and stomach cramps. Combined with peppers, this dish is high in Vitamin C and A. Coriander seeds and leaves are also considered carminative and help chelate heavy metals.

Bison Stir Fry
Grass fed (and finished) Bison is super high in iron, zinc, B12 and lean, low fat protein. Compared to beef, bison is higher in omega-3 fats and lower in saturated fat.

Most bison farms also maintain strict standards that prevent antibiotic and hormone

Smokey Romesco Sauce
Every time I make this recipe at a party, it's a huge hit and everyone asks me for the recipe. I thought I'd finally share my secrets to the smokey delicacy - my modified low FODMAP, garlic free recipe that tastes even better than a traditional Romesco with almonds and garlic. It's amazing how the flavors come together when you add ingredients that are already so flavorful and delicious! Red peppers and tomatoes are both high in lycopene, Vitamin C, B vitamins and Vitamin K.
Roasted Parsnip Mash
As the weather gets colder, it's great to have warm, savory root vegetable like parsnips. Not only are they super comforting and tasty, they're also high in potassium, Vitamin C, magnesium and phytonutrients. Parsnips are low in fermentable sugars, meaning they won't cause bloating like some other starches (butternut squash, sweet potato) if you have IBS. This recipe is low FODMAP, low gylcemic index, nightshade free, gluten free, and vegan if you use coconut oil- all the fre
Anti-inflammatory Herb Sauce
Lately I've been making lots of herb sauces from our garden, since we have lots of thai basil, rosemary, parsley and cilantro. Fresh herbs are loaded with antioxidants and phytochemicals that reduce inflammation and prevent disease. Many culinary herbs like oregano and parsley actually contain anti-microbial compounds and facilitate the body's natural detoxification process. I love that I can get anti-inflammation, medicinal properties and delicious flavor by making a differe
