Carrot Cake Cookies (Made with Almond Butter!)

with one comment

carrot cake cookies

I came up with a recipe for carrot cake cookies this week that involves no flour whatsoever. Nope, it’s all almond butter. The entire batch went in one day of course, but hey, you’re eating carrots, so who has time to feel guilty?

The recipe is over on Foodie Underground, but I can tell you it’s as simple as having some carrots and almond butter and a few spices on hand.

Why We Have to Normalize Food Consciousness

with 3 comments

I was pulling out ingredients for dinner from the refrigerator and my friend was visibly squirming looking at the quart glass bottle of green sludge that was on the first shelf.

“It’s just a kale smoothie.”

She looked at me and rolled her eyes.

“I know, I know… who has kale smoothies in their refrigerator?” I responded. I paused for dramatic effect in order to underline the absurdity of my next statement. “It has chia seeds in it too.”
