pumpkin pie ice cream recipe

Pumpkins are one of the most iconic symbols of cooler weather, and of holiday gatherings in North America. Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite desserts and considerably healthy, too, so I will happily make something a bit unexpected with the same flavor and health benefits but none of the gluten.

This is a tasty, healthy, no-stress recipe to serve when people come over. The variety of tastes makes it a hit and will intrigue the palate to keep you coming back for more! It is so low-stress, it is more a loose suggestion than a recipe: Combine ingredients with pleasing flavors in proportions that suit you, top with flax oil, and serve. I recommend scooping it up with chunks of bread. Pick a loaf that is crusty on the outside…

Beet ‘N’ Berry Overnight Cauli Proats

October 25, 2019
beet and berry overnight oats

This is one of my absolute favorite overnight oat combos.  Honestly, I am addicted to the color, the taste, and how happy and satisfied I feel after eating them. Salus Red Beet Crystals have become a staple in my home. Even if you don’t like beets, these are worth a try. They’re naturally sweet, less “earthy” than regular beets, and rich in vitamins, minerals, and plant-based compounds such as betalains and nitrates.  Among their many benefits, these compounds may help…
