  • Quick & Easy – Make Your Own Almond Milk (and Flour)

    Check out this recipe for homemade almond milk, almond flour, and learn how to avoid common mistakes.
    Almond milk has become popular even among those who do not have dairy sensitivities – the mild nutty flavor is a great addition to chia seeds, cereal, smoothies, coffee, or on its own. Grocery stores offer a wide variety of almond milk – vanilla, unsweetened, strawberry, chocolate….but unfortunately most options contain added sugar, artificial flavoring, and a hefty price tag. Until a few months ago I never realized how easy it is to make – and I haven’t used store bought almond milk since! Homemade almond milk is entirely customizable and only takes 10 minutes to make. Plus, the leftover almond meal can be used to make silky smooth almond flour.

  • Kicking Off Whole30

    I am NOT an expert at healthy eating [at all]. I’m the type of person that will eat KFC just because I feel like it or go to McDonald’s whenever I am craving something salty. Starbuck’s Frappuccinos find their way into my hand at least 4 times a week [how did it get there?!]. I am French so the thought of not eating bread or cheese for a month is terrifying!
