Soft “Oatmeal” Cinnamon Raisin Cookies

Posted 14 June 2014 | By | Categories: almond flour, cookies, gluten free, grain free, healthy dessert, recipe | No Comments

When I was little, chocolate chip cookies were my favorite type of cookies on the planet. Oatmeal raisin? Not so much. It wasn’t that I didn’t like them, because I did, they just weren’t at the top of the list. It wasn’t until I started cooking and baking when I was 9 or 10 that […]

I’m a big fan of coffee cake. Don’t ask me why, but I really love the dense texture and its perfect balance of sweetness. This Paleo coffee cake includes one of my favorite ingredients of all time – pumpkin. Pumpkin treats, such as cookies, cakes, and pies, often bring with them a host of memories […]

Good and Bad Foods

Posted 10 January 2013 | By | Categories: health, healthy dessert, healthy foods, healthy weight, how to eat healthy | 2 Comments

I wanted to clear the air about one topic here on The Healthy Advocate, and that topic surrounds the idea of good and bad foods.

My Favorite Brownies

Posted 11 October 2012 | By | Categories: chocolate, healthy dessert | 4 Comments

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 […]

Chocolate: An Ounce a Day May Keep the Doctor Away

Posted 20 August 2012 | By | Categories: chocolate, health, health food, healthy dessert | 1 Comment

I eat chocolate literally every single day. Sometimes, when I feel a need for a break from caffeine, I will replace it with carob, or not eat it all together. But, I just couldn’t imagine going without it for myself. Many people, upon hearing my love for chocolate, are shocked that I support such a […]

Thanksgiving is a time for being grateful for the things we have. Above all things, I have to say that I’m incredibly grateful for my family – not just my relatives, but also true friends who treat me as if I were their own. The other thing that I am very grateful for is my […]
