Pumpkin Pecan Bread with Pumpkin Cinnamon Coconut Butter

My first furbaby that I rescued & adopted passed away last week and needless to say, I’ve been heartbroken over the loss of both her and her husbunny Jack within a 2 month span.  To work through it I’ve been drowning myself in recipe testing & finalizing.  Enter my pumpkin pecan bread: this has been in the works for a year, and I was never 100% satisfied with the outcome, until now!  There’s something extremely comforting on a cool fall morning to have your house fill with the scent of pumpkins & pecans baking.  I love this bread sliced, topped with my pumpkin cinnamon coconut butter, then toasted to melt the butter into the bread! Enjoy! xx Leesmarley 1 scene1 scene2 Continue reading

Chia Seed Breakfast Bowl Two Ways

23 Apr

titleIMG_7322s IMG_7317s

I love this nutrition-rich breakfast bowl (it also makes a great dessert!).  I used hemp milk (my personal favorite) as my non-dairy milk choice.  Check out the nutrition punch of this breakfast bowl from the hemp milk & chia seeds.

Chia seeds have 2 times the protein of any other seed or grain, 5 times the calcium of milk (PLUS boron that helps transfer calcium into your bones), 2 times the amount of potassium than bananas, 3 times the reported antioxidant strength of blueberries, 3 times more iron than spinach, and omega 3 & 6.  How do they make this pudding?  These great little seeds absorb 9-12 times their weight in water!  Want to learn more?

Classic Cinnamon Buns

Over one year ago I transitioned to a gluten-free diet.  I’ll admit, I was having some very strong cravings for the most glutenous foods I could imagine.  While some avoid gluten for a “fad” diet, I avoid it due to serious health complications (don’t even think of coming near me after eating gluten, you better check yourself & sanitize!).  I’ll be honest, it is hard not being able to have a social side of life & go out to eat, but I know I can whip up more delicious & nutritious noms in my own kitchen AND know exactly what is in them!  This is why I am so passionate about food & health; I know exactly what struggles all of us allergy-friendly eaters endure & I want to bring healthy & mouth-watering recipes to the world, educate others about the allergy-friendly life, and bring hope to those that are struggling internally, thinking they’ll never eat “normal” food again.  Hey, normal is boring; we food freaks have to eat too! buns
