Taco Seasoning Recipe

Taco Seasoning Recipe

  Taco seasoning packets are processed and loaded with ingredients that you do not want in your body. Making your own seasoning is so easy, and you probably have all of the ingredients in your spice cabinet already. Do not worry about exact measurements here, taste and adjust as you go. If you would prefer to still buy pre made seasoning, I found this one here (for popcorn) that would work perfectly.   TACO SEASONING RECIPE   INGREDIENTS •  1 tsp salt (I prefer a healthy Pink Himalayan salt for the health benefits) •  1 tsp black pepper •  2...

Sweet Potato Taco Recipe {with homemade gluten-free tortillas}

Sweet Potato Taco Recipe {with homemade gluten-free tortillas}

Adding diced sweet potato to your regular taco filling adds flavor and additional nutrients. If you do not like sweet potatoes, you can always leave them out of this recipe. I do not like the flavor of sweet potato by itself, but it cooks down so you do not notice it is in there and it is a great way to get some extra vegetables into any dish. I finished this off with sharp cheddar cheese, fresh salsa (salsa recipe), and wrapped the taco filling in a soft, gluten-free tortilla wrap (gluten-free tortilla recipe).   SWEET POTATO TACO RECIPE {with...

Gluten-free Tortilla & Burrito Wrap Recipe

Gluten-free Tortilla & Burrito Wrap Recipe

I set out to create an easy wheat-free and gluten-free tortilla wrap recipe that did not involve expensive gluten-free flours or tons of random ingredients that I do not regularly have on hand. I also did not want to have to roll out the dough before cooking like flour tortillas require. I was looking for a simple “pour the batter into the pan” kind of thing. After trying a few different variations, I came up with this 3-ingredient recipe (plus optional seasonings) and could not be happier with the result. This is a new staple in our home...

Cheesy Herb & Tomato Stuffed Mini Peppers Recipe

Cheesy Herb & Tomato Stuffed Mini Peppers Recipe

  Having a snack attack and an empty fridge means thinking outside the box. Usually I grab an apple with peanut butter, or some cheese and crackers for a quick snack, but none of my usual “go-to’s” were on hand, so I tried something new. This is essentially just herbs and some vegetables (tomato and onion) with cheese, and given that colored peppers are a nutrition powerhouse (more vitamin C than an orange), this is a great choice to fuel your body between meals, or even as a meal in itself. This is what I would call a “no rules recipe”...

Spicy Thai Coconut Basil Chicken Curry Recipe

Spicy Thai Coconut Basil Chicken Curry Recipe

  I used to work at an Indian restaurant long ago while living in Hollywood, CA. Their curry was famous for its flavor and health benefits, and it was no surprise that they had many celebrities as loyal customers. The food was literally addicting. I will always have a strong appreciation for that experience since it really sparked my interest in the medicinal properties of food, particularly herbs and spices. The Chef was an Herbalist and an MD, and he would often create custom curry combinations based on the needs of that particular person. It was so interesting to...
