I love food. Perhaps a bit too much. Especially desserts…sugar will surely be my downfall. Thus, in order to develop healthier habits, I’ve spent the past few years working on finding lighter alternatives to the wide array of carb-loaded cuisines that tempt our tastebuds daily. In this blog, I will share some of the best recipes I’ve found, as well as recipes that I’ve adapted. My main goals in cooking are to…


  • Nutrients (pile on the veggies!)
  • Protein
  • Healthy fats


  • Refined carbs
  • Added sugars
  • Saturated fats

…all without sacrificing flavor or presentation. After all, both make up your total score if you’re competing on Food Network, so why not bring those principles into real life? Grab your aprons and let’s get cookin’!

*Disclaimer: Special occasions sometimes call for “un-healthified, straight-up” runs of recipes . You’ll find my favorites here too!
