Superfood Coconut Oats – Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of this. That’s what jet lag does to a person… I thought I took a picture, but I didn’t. I guess you’re going to have to take my word for it. So this is not a traditional Malaysian recipe (sorry). But, it’s a dessert, and it’s healthy. And here in…

Sugar-Free, Vegan Banana Cake

This recipe could easily be adapted to a cupcake recipe as well. Simply use cupcake liners and a cupcake tin and bake for 15-25 minutes instead! I find that this recipe turns out best after it’s sat in the fridge to set for about 3 hours, but fresh out of the oven is delicious too,…

Creamy Coconut Rice

When I was much younger, one of my “go-to” healthy snacks was instant rice mixed with cinnamon and sugar. Although by no means healthy, at the time, that’s what healthy meant to me. Ever since, I’ve been trying to figure out how to make this childhood snack in a legitimately healthy and flavorful way. Below is…

Melted “Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups”

This originally started as an experiment in cookie-making without granulated sugar options. I was hopeful after I saw how beautiful the cookie dough was and how nicely it formed into balls. But, after about 7 minutes in the oven, I saw that the cookies were melting all over the place! I left them until they’d…

Delicious Homemade Hummus

I’d forgotten how much I like hummus until I very recently was put in the position of having to try it again. Except this time, I got to make it the way I wanted to (no store bought stuff, just whole ingredients put together). Chickpeas are high in vitamin B15, a little known vitamin that can improve energy…

Chocolate Brownie Bites

This was a super fun discovery! I’ve been seeing the “protein bite” trend going around on Facebook and Pinterest, and although I don’t really buy into the whole protein powder thing (I’d say the vast majority of protein powders have ingredients like sugar and/or some other unnatural sweetener along with a number of other trans-fat-related ingredients),…

Carrot-Chia Muffins

I recently made some non-vegan carrot muffins that included coconut sugar as a sweetener instead of stevia, but since we’re no longer eating eggs (the final straw — we’re now officially vegan), and we’re not planning on eating any added sugars for at least the next 2 months until the end of our cleanse, I needed…

Banana Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is slowly becoming one of my new favorite desserts. I wouldn’t have ever probably tried chia pudding again had it not been for our temporary change in diet, so I’m very grateful that I got the opportunity to experiment with something new! I’ve done chocolate chia pudding a few times now with great…

Buckwheat and Oat Flatbread Crackers

I love hummus, guacamole, salsa, and just about any other similar dip. And I love corn chips with these dips (particularly the Totopos that you can find here in Mexico!). But, on the candida cleanse diet we can’t eat corn… so therefore, that means no corn chips. Every day I look fondly at the Totopos sitting…
