Dairy Free Living: Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

Something that I really, really, really, really miss about eating dairy is indulging in spoonfuls of Nutella chocolate spread. When cowboyfriend and I found ourselves at a grocery store a town or two over we found something magical…no, something dare I say it, downright divine. Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter spread fulfilled all of my needs when …

Tips For Cutting Down On Sugar

Last night Cowboyfriend and I watched a documentary called Sugar Coated that broke down the marketing ploy that made sugar such an immense part of our diet. It also explained how this is assisting in a rapid increase in fatty liver disease in adolescents and children which was unheard of before the 1980’s. This got …

The Quest for Healthy Bread

I’m sure I know what you’re thinking. Healthy bread? Impossible. Who does she think she is! Well guys, the reality is that the bread that we’re buying from stores tastes nothing like what bread really tastes like. There are sugars and preservatives and dangerous things added to mass produced bread products that can cause IBS, bloating …

Indian Bean and Rice Stew or Kitchari

Two people, one milk allergy.

This means we often walk out with full bellies that don’t digest very well. After a couple of days …

Buffalo Chicken Salad with Dairy Free Blue Cheez Dressing

We love salad night, it’s truly a blessing that Josh is a cattle rancher that loves salads.

This salad was inspired by this amazing dairy free blue cheese recipe that I got from …

How To Make Oat Milk

It has been a long time since I drank regular milk but I must say I’ve pretended that Lactaid worked for me and eaten cheese a couple of times since I admitted to myself that I was lactose intolerant. As I’ve continued to cook with almond, soy and coconut milks I have been feeling increasingly …

Porkchops and Savory Apple Gravy

Some of my favorite dinners are just thrown together using what’s already in our fridge and pantry. Lately I’ve been really playing with the combination of pork chops and gravy and this has been my most favorite combination yet. The apple cider vinegar adds a delicious tang quality to the delicately sweet and savory dish. …
