sugar-free, candida diet, vegan Peppermint Nanaimo Bars on rickiheller.com

Chocolate + mint. Could there be a more divine combination? I’m kinda partial to chocolate + caramel as well, come to think of it. And chocolate + cherry rocks pretty well, too. Oh, and chocolate + pumpkin. And what the heck–chocolate and chocolate is always a winner, isn’t it?) But yeah, chocolate + mint is way […]

Whole Foods Knockoff Kale and Beet Salad (aka the Easiest Kale Salad You’ll Ever Make)

candida diet kale and beet salad recipe on rickiheller.com

It’s kind of a cliché already; you’re probably familiar with “Whole Paycheck Market” (aka Whole Foods).  Or maybe you’ve heard it referred to as the grocery store where they accept “Yuppie Food Stamps” (aka twenty dollar bills). Where eco-conscious, health conscious, modern parents shop (aka rich folks. Or food bloggers).

Before I get to today’s post, I’m excited to tell you about the free live webinar series I’m offering–starting tonight!

Are you a romantic? I’m pretty sure I’m what you’d call a “hopeless romantic.” Did I cry at Titanic? Let’s just say I felt responsible for at least 50% of all that gushing water that swept Jack away from Rose while I was watching that movie. Do I hoard  save mementos from my former beaux? […]

If you follow a whole-foods or traditional diet, you’ve probably eaten your fair share of lacto-fermented sauerkraut (in fact, it’s probably fair to guess that you’ve even made some from scratch, right?). Lacto-fermented sauerkraut–and other naturally fermented foods, like kimchi–are staples on most anti-candida diets, too. They’re bursting with healthy probiotics and taste great as […]

[photo: Nicole Axworthy] Okay, before I even begin today’s post, let me state unequivocally: I am not going to make any references whatsoever to the Super Bowl. (Oh, wait, I guess technically, I did just that. Harumph). As many of you long-time readers know, the HH and I have virtually no interest in football, or […]

Quick and Easy Curried Cabbage

Gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan Quick Curried Cabbage Recipe

It may have taken a while, but I’ve finally come to embrace my inner nerd and display her proudly (rather than try to quash her idiosyncracies, as I did when younger). Maybe it’s related to the success of The Big Bang Theory, which makes nerdiness cool; maybe it’s the effects of menopause (after which you […]

Vegan, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Bircher Muesli recipe on rickiheller.com

You likely already know that my diet is 100% dairy-free (a vegan diet is, by default, free of dairy). Though I grew up with milk as the primary beverage in our house, had cottage cheese for breakfast, ate cheese-laden pizza for dinner and scooped ice cream for dessert, once I switched to a vegan diet, […]
