Post image for July Seasonal Shopping List

Summer produce is here and will be overflowing the stands at your local market! Keep your eye out for perfectly ripe tomatoes and sweet melons this month. Stone fruits are at their peak this month so be sure to pick some of those up as well — they will add the perfect amount of sweetness to your fresh salads. Add squash blossoms to a quesadilla and make homemade salsa with tomatillos. There are so many possibilities with these ingredients! Read more »

Love eating seasonal foods. I'm always excited for summer blueberries, just in time to bake lots of things like blueberry bars! (http://www.theneverendingstomach.com/2013/07/blueberry-bars-with-almond-crumble.html)

Post image for 3 Natural Substitutes For Sugar

It comes to a certain time of day and my sugar craving starts to kick in. All I can think about is a chocolate chip cookie to help push it away, but I find that when I do this I become sluggish and extremely tired afterwards. Read more »

I do trust all of the ideas you've introduced to your post. They're very convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for starters. May just you please extend them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

Yes, honey and maple syrup have natural occurring sugars but this article is referring to refined sugar (i.e white, cane, castor etc). All 3 options are fantastic substitutes as they are jam-packed full of trace minerals and B Vitamins, especially maple syrup which is aka "the blood/life force of the maple tree". Look for 'raw' honey, 'B Grade' maple syrup and 'preservative (220) free' dates, as they are your most nutritious options. Molasses is fantastic too, in particular for vego's, vegans and those with anemia as it is naturally rich in iron. Coconut sugar and nectar are also fantastic choices, especially for those who need a low GI alternative. In regards to natural "sweeteners" stevia (tablets, powder, liquid), agave, rice malt syrup and xylitol are okay sugar-free products, however are often HEAVILY processed and genetically modified so in my opinion they aren't the best choice available. To curve your apatite there are two natural options. Add ground cinnamon to your food or take chromium caps/tabs. Both options balance out your blood sugar levels. Certified Organic, Fair Trade and Sustainable options are always best! :)

Save the egg yolks! I kept mine when I tried this recipe (wonderful by the way). I used them with coconut milk to make rosewater ice cream :)
Gezelle -Jul 02, 2013, 1:24PM
I made this today for the office - very simple, festive and light! Thank you, FP!!! with respect to the visual, i kinda wish the glaze was airy/fluffy, not gooey - kinda like a whipped cream. I guess i can play with the recipe .. or maybe i did something wrong? the glaze used in the photos above resembles white frosting. hmm. xxoxOXo happy 4th everyone

Yeah, I agree with Victoria - I would probably use a third as much spinach and half as much parsley.
Julia -Jul 22, 2013, 7:52PM
I made this for my family, and it smells great. However, there was way to much spinach, and it took forever for the broth to be absorbed I only used a cup because the rice was al dente when it finally absorbed.

How do I substitute 1 cup of potato starch for almond flour? also 1 cup of white flour for almond flour?
Carolyn -Mar 05, 2014, 1:41PM
I have left gums and starches out of my breads, and have made the most appealing bread, that is also nutritious with ancient grains all made into flour. I have found the perfect balance and the bread does not fall, 2 eggs are used in the recipe but no dairy. This was done because I was diagnosed with Lupus in 1990 and have had arthritis since I was a teenager. My intestines have been inflamed seriously and this change has been a turning point in my life. My husband and I eat no gluten, and do not buy packaged gluten products because of all the starches. Have you read the ingredients in the Robinhood Gluten free flour. Well I am not impressed! If anyone would like a healthy gluten free bread recipe that is not gritty or gummy but slices for sandwiches and has no white flours or starches visit jacolynsattic.com and leave your E mail and I will send a recipe free

Last week I tried something new: a juice cleanse. The 3-day Nekter Juice Cleanse, to be exact.

Here I’ll share my experience with the cleanse, and how it helped or affected me overall! Have you ever tried a juice cleanse? Which one? Let us know your thoughts, we would love to hear!
