Can a 4th of July dessert really help you feel fuller longer and prevent you from going back to the picnic table for seconds? This one can. Powered by healthy fats and a good amount of protein, this strawberry shortcake can even be a breakfast meal. Almond flour packs the same nutrition as whole almonds.

This is a great salad to enjoy this spring. Arugula is a cruciferous veggie (part of the broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprout family) and is one of the best detoxing veggies you can eat!
I am so thrilled to have come up with this super energizing and cooling shake!
Seriously, just try this and I promise – you will never bother to reach for a milkshake or Frappuccino again.
Here at Be Well, we often work with clients that skip breakfast or potentially worse, grab something not-so-great to go such as a muffin or bagel! While everyone is different, we find that most people feel more energized when they nourish themselves with a healthy breakfast in the morning. Even during busy mornings, it’s easy to get together a quick, delicious and nutritious breakfast.
In my opinion, cheese can be one of the hardest dairy items to give up while on the Cleanse, so instead of feeling deprived, I love to make this cashew cream cheese to keep in the fridge. It makes a great dip, adds a nice creaminess to gluten free pasta dishes, and goes great with just about anything else that you would like cream cheese on. And you don’t have to be on the Cleanse to enjoy it!
Plus, its vegan, raw, gluten-free and dairy-free, which means that it can suit many diets.
Now that it’s finally warm out, I love to grill. It’s a great way to add extra flavor to your favorite fish, poultry or meat. I pick up wild fish and fresh corn from my local farmers market. Grilling a delicious salmon is easy and the perfect summer-time meal when paired with avocado salsa!
I’ve had a lot of fun starting solid foods with my little one this year. She’s responded very well to healthy whole foods like sweet potato, acorn squash, broccoli, avocado, eggs, salmon and coconut oil. But I’ve noticed that when she goes on playdates with the other kids, she’s exposed to a lot of finger food like Cheerios, Goldfish and Puffs
Now that spring has finally arrived, we’ve been frequenting our local farms. I love stocking up on fresh eggs and local produce directly from the farm. We often take the kids so they can learn about how and where our food is sourced.
Also known as Golden Milk, turmeric tea is a warm and nourishing drink that helps the body fight inflammation while boosting the immune system. This bright orange herb has been used in different cultures for thousands of years to treat and prevent disease by supplying the body with many beneficial antioxidants and healing properties, making it a great way to turn your food into medicine!
If you like Lara bars, you’ll love this homemade cashew bar recipe. It’s gluten, dairy, soy and refined-sugar free. It’s super easy to make and tastes delicious — much better than snacking on processed bars with a long list of ingredients!
