Fresh Peach Tart with Walnut Crust

This recipe is adapted from Amy Chaplin’s cookbook, At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen. I made this tart for fourth of July this year after finding the best, juicy, ripe, fresh peaches and it turned out so good. I love this recipe because it is not really sweet, and allows the natural sweetness of…

Galaxy Bowl

This galaxy bowl is packed with all good things that your body will thank you for. I crave this after I have had a nice workout in and need to refuel my body without spiking my blood sugar levels. The flax and hemp seeds provide a source of protein and healthy fats, the ginger and…
