Nutrient-Dense Delicious Pho Recipe

The only good things about winter are snowboarding, snow, hot chocolate and soup. In no particular order. Everything else is just meh. Ok, ok, those aren’t the only good things. Some people hate on winter (like the Starks a la Game of Thrones…I’m still weeping over Ned Stark. Oh, and Rob Stark. And Catelyn Stark…basically, all the Starks and the long list of characters which fell prey to the GOT bloodbath), but I actually love all the seasons. I’m a hippie at heart, and each season brings with it some amazing outdoor playtime. D.C. winters are pretty mild (now that I’ve written that, the weather gods are probably going to send a raging snowpocalypse on the DMV area), but my husband Samuel and I get our fill of winter, because we usually go skiing at least two or three times a month to some of the surrounding resorts in-between our trips to Colorado. We love the snow so much, we would build an igloo and camp out if we could. I’m probably going to be featuring non-stop …

Gluten Free Banana Bread

When I was growing up, I had an obsession with banana bread that I’ve yet to live down with my family. I was a little more than mildly fanatical about it, and since it’s not exactly cake and it’s not really just bread, I would usually try (unsuccessfully) to convince my mother that it was in my best interest to let me eat say…the entire loaf. Let it not be said that I was afraid of carbs as a child. Though I’ve developed a moderate ability to reign myself in when it comes to committing total carbocide, I still just love a delicious, moist piece of banana bread with a cup of tea and a good book. That’s a scene from a little corner in my heaven, friends ๐Ÿ™‚ Being gluten free, sugar free, preservative free, etc etc etc often feels like it ends up being taste free. Texture can be unpleasant as well, and the final result is a really bad knock off from whatever original recipe from which it was fashioned. I don’t …

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes: Because Too Much of A Good Thing Is Delish!

Can you ever have too many pumpkin recipes? I submit to you that you can not! If you read my last post about making pumpkin bread, you’re probably aware of my crazed enthusiasm for all things fall and pumpkin related. I can’t even feel bad about this…I mean, fall is the most wonderful time of the year (take that, Christmas! Kidding, I kid…Santa don’t send me coal!) Plus, pumpkin is AMAZING for your health. The bright orange flesh is chocked full of ingredients that aid digestion, immunization, anti-aging (SIGN ME UP!) and even helps with disease prevention. (For fellow nerds who like to research, check out this link on the benefits of pumpkin) My favorite meal is Brinner: breakfast for dinner. It’s all the benefits of breakfast with the perks of dinner. ‘m wide awake, loving life, and ready for a hearty meal. Unlike at breakfast, I have no thoughts of how much I’m missing my bed. I also tend to drink only lemon water and a green smoothie for breakfast to let my digestive …
