    Healthy Berry Crunch Recipe

    “I saw the Lord always before me … therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will live in hope.” Acts 2:25-26 NIV Of all the foods from my healthy friends in my high-school girl’s trip group, this one is my summer favorite.  I’ll share some savory recipes like Turmeric Soup later as weather gets cooler.  You know . . . when it feels more like soup weather. 🙂 Fresh blueberries are now in season (yay!), but they won’t last forever.  The organic frozen fruit medley from the grocer makes the perfect quick and easy berry crunch, no matter the season.

    Almond Joyous Healthy Hack

    Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! (Psalm 34:8) Before we get all springy with making salads with fresh garden veggies, let’s pause to splurge on a sweet treat I relied on last Christmas.  Why do you need this now?  Well…..mostly because I shared the base to start this recipe last week – the Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free Sweetened Condensed Milk. The whole reason for that post last week was because I discovered quite by accident when making this candy that I was actually making the sweetened and condensed milk in the early steps of the process.  So, for today, we…

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk Substitute

    Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free Sweetened Condensed Milk

    “Kind words are like honey — sweet to the soul and healthy for the body. (Proverbs 16:24) This dairy-free, refined sugar-free sweetened condensed coconut milk is the basis for some sweet treat recipes I’ll share in the future.  This sweet concoction will healthfully replace your usual sweetened condensed cow’s milk.  Hurrah! I learned over the Christmas holidays that it’s extremely hard to resist the unhealthy treats unless you have your own healthy alternatives within arm’s reach.  If you allow yourself even a small amount of processed sugar, the cravings are ON!  Don’t we regret the decision of one simple cheat resulting in a full-blown hard-to-resist pull of addiction?  The cheats…

  • 3-Minute Sinless Chocolate Almond Candy

    How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth. (Psalm 119:103) Does including the word sinless in the title of this candy make you less interested in this recipe or more interested?  Do we somehow associate really decadent chocolate candy with naughtiness? After writing this full post yesterday, I went on Facebook LIVE this morning to demonstrate the quick and easy process for making this candy.  It really does take only three minutes to stir everything together.  Surprisingly quick! Please excuse the brief camera debacle at the beginning.  It’s been a long time since the last time I made a FB LIVE video.  But, it…
