Sugar-Free Cookie Dough Bites (vegan & Plant Paradox friendly)

Lectin-Free Caesar Salad (vegan & gluten-free)

Caesar Salad is a simplistic dish, made from nothing but a creamy dressing – containing garlic, mayonnaise, anchovies, and Worcestershire sauce – tossed with crisp, romaine lettuce, served piping cold.

Garlic Cauliflower Rice with Italian Stir-Fry

Raise your hand if you love simple dinners. *slowly raises hand*To be honest, when I’m not working on a recipe, I usually enjoy big ole’ salads for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner.

In all actuality, that pre-chewed mush works to our benefit – when a smoothie such as this is ingested, less energy is required for digestion, meaning the body can use that energy on productive things, such as writing, doing that thing you’ve been putting off…
