After going sugar-free in 2010, I rarely use honey; however, I do often use it in small amounts every now and then if I’m in a pinch, often combining with other sweeteners, like coconut palm sugar, xylitol, and stevia. Substituting honey for sugar in your recipes is definitely a science, as it has many different […]

If there’s one thing that has really helped me improve my overall health it is the daily practice of saying “thank you”. Gratitude is a powerful emotion that improves our health.

This post is part of Intoxicated on Life’s Wellness Wednesday Well, it isn’t winter yet, and heck, it doesn’t even feel like winter in my part of the country. Yesterday it got to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, in the beginning of December! Craziness. But despite that (and in my rebellious spirit), I’ve wanted to share with […]

Posted 26 November 2012 | By | Categories: top 10 list | No Comments

We’ve all been there. Vacations and traveling are exciting opportunities that help us see the world in a new way, and to experience different cultures, ideas, people, climates, and foods.

If you have been following Proposition 37 recently, you already know that there is quite a bit of concern over GMO foods. With 50 or so countries requiring labeling or restrictions on genetically modified foods, isn’t it curious as to why we don’t label our own?

Posted 24 October 2012 | By | Categories: happy, healing, health, health benefits of meditation, meditation, mood | No Comments

A couple of weeks ago I asked a question over on my Facebook page about television and the evening news. I had a mix of responses (which was great!), both either defending the nightly news or shaming it for its negativity. In all honesty, both sides have a point. Yes, we need to live in […]

Posted 22 October 2012 | By | Categories: candy, chocolate | No Comments

Halloween is upon us. Do you feel it? I certainly do. I’ve been drinking Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes, watching Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown, and littering the house with Halloweenie (I just made that a word) type decorations. Autumn in general is my favorite season, but Halloween may be one of my two favorite “holidays”. I […]


My Favorite Brownies

Brownies were a delicious, warm chocolaty treat that I’ve always known since my early childhood. For a couple of years now, I’ve been putting off perfecting a grain-free, gluten-free brownie recipe. Black bean brownies, you say? Yes, they are delicious. They do not, however, come close to “the real thing”, in my opinion, and I […]
