I was that kid in high school and university that everyone hated because I always got my essays done early. While my friends were pulling all-nighters on the weekend before a due date, I was out partying and whooping it up (though, as it turned out, in the company of strangers–since my friends were home […]

Spirulina Granola Snack Bars

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that grows in freshwater lakes and other natural sources of water. Used for thousands of years for its health benefits, it’s undergone a renaissance in recent years, even earning the coveted moniker of “superfood.” In fact, some experts deem spirulina the most nutrient-dense food on the planet! That’s because it […]

Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies

[photo: Celine Saki] I’d been wanting to develop a Christmas sugar cookie for years.  My first attempt was a wonderful variation with spelt flour and agave nectar, but when I reaffirmed my commitment to the anti-candida diet and cut gluten out, I had to find an alternative.
