This recipe is thanks to my friend Judy. Judy and her husband follow a plant-based, whole-food, low-fat diet, and she shared these yummy muffins with us following a (physically-distanced) hike. They're super satisfying, easy to make and have NO wheat, dairy, eggs or oil!  I restrained...

  It gives me such reassurance knowing that I have healthy, nutritious food at the ready. When I'm running short on time, have late days/evenings at the studio or simply have no idea what to make for dinner, I absolutely love knowing that I have something...

I've always been a little bit of a mad scientist. I love creating various "potions"...
