It’s 2018 and just like kale, matcha, and avocado had their time, cauliflower is ready to take center stage. I was skeptical at first, health-wise aside, I ‘d rarely choose pizza first, or even last, on a menu. However, in the past few months as I’ve observed up and coming recipe posts and the health world’s renewed interest in (cauliflower) pizza, I too chose to join in. After my own secret affair with pizza to try and discover the perfect balance between crunch and doughy, cheesy and saucy, it’s safe to say we have a winner….
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of De’Longhi Group. The opinions and text are all mine.
The holidays are, without a doubt, the most special and festive time of the year (aside from my birthday!). Some people celebrate with gifts (here’s a holiday gift guide in case you’re late) and others celebrate with Italian coffee and gluten-free cookies. I am very much a part of the latter group. It was a special day in my home last week when I received the De’Longhi Dedica DeLuxe and Dedica Grinder. I had heard of De’Longhi before, but I wasn’t particularly familiar with their functionality or product line. Lets just put it this way, if I’ve made a conscious choice of coffee over presents, then you know they’re doing something right….
Gifts are the ultimate expression of feelings, especially around holiday time. I created the first-ever Healthy Holiday Guide from TheWholeTara to help you find that perfect gift. This is the ideal list for someone who is into health, self-care, and, maybe, travel. I know firsthand how difficult gift-giving can be, so I hope this year’s gift guide gives you plenty ideas and all of the clarity you need to buy your loved one a special something for the holidays. …
Admit it. Holiday season has you running around like a crazy. You’re trying to close out the year, make everyone on your gift list happy, and, of course, stay sane while you’re at it. Whoever says there’s no such thing as holiday madness is sadly mistaken, and unfortunately healthy eating gets put on the back burner in times like this. Luckily, I’m here with a solution and you’re here reading this post….

Between the start of the holidays, dietetic internship jitters, and the day-t0-day of life as a blogger, I’m surprised I even had time to share this Brain-Boosting Spinach Chickpea Salad with you. Believe it or not, this blog work requires a lot of focus. I mean, it is a real job after all! Just within the last week I’ve been on four planes and three film sets, not to mention working on recipe after recipe. Luckily, I made it through and came out on the other side with this brain-healthy salad recipe! Definitely worth it.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, comes the sneaky temptations that make their way into every holiday affair. Between the hors d’oeuvres, saucy side dishes, and larger than usual portions, it can feel almost impossible to stick to any sort of eating regimen. My personal trick is to save where you can because chances are if you set too many restrictions on yourself before going into the meal, you’ll throw all of your rules away before the turkey is even sliced.
This Vegan Sunday French Toast is the breakfast (or brunch!) of your dreams. It’s really the easiest thing to make and is dairy free, egg free, and extra impressive. I tried to make this recipe as streamlined as possible. There are only four steps and all are fool-proof. 🙂
Things that all Sundays should consist of:
Breakfast in bed
Sunlight peaking in through the curtains
& this healthy Vegan French Toast, of course!
I’ve been extremely caught up in the Instagram land of cardboard GG crackers, tuna tartare, and fiber-filled snacks these days. It’s hard not to get sucked in when one Instagram Story after the next is another high fiber, high protein, low carb diet follower. I actually happen to believe it’s more than a craze and a pretty sustainable way of eating, especially if you’re a city girl with every one of these options at your fingertips. It’s somehow normal to go to a restaurant and order rice made out of cauliflower and noodles made out of zucchini. It’s also somehow normal to board a plane with a packet of GG crackers and smoked salmon in hand.
Ah, 2017 and the age of millennials. Nothing is good enough for us.
If you’re looking for the perfect dessert to serve guests, look no further. One of my favorite (and stunning!) healthy dessert recipes is this clean version of Dark Chocolate Glazed Marzipan Cookies. Marzipan is generally not the healthiest, especially if you’re trying to avoid high sugar and high fat sweets. I swapped the sugar for coconut sugar and in place of almonds, I used a combination of almond milk and almond flour. The result is just as good, if not better, and I even dipped them in dark chocolate and almond sprinkles!
Fiber has always been one of the magic nutrients that help with weight loss and revving up the metabolism. It keeps us full with less calories, longer. Lately I’ve been on a big fiber kick myself and have completely changed my eating habits. It’s one of those things that I always knew about, but didn’t quite put into action enough. Fiber and protein are two of the most powerful, and strategic, nutrients everyone should be consuming for overall health and weight loss. …
