Recipe: Greek Yogurt Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
In case I haven’t beaten a dead horse enough with consuming Greek yogurt, here goes yet again! I love using Greek yogurt for baking breads or muffins because it adds moistness, increases the protein content and if you use flavored Greek yogurt you could potentially decrease the sugar you add into the recipe.  For example, while I am in [...]

Recipe: Almond Meal Muffins

Recipe: Almond Meal Muffins
A friend of mine in Mumbai was headed back to USA and had a pantry full of goodies to share. Being in Mumbai has been an eye-opening experience from the food and nutrition perspective.  When she suggested I take bags of nuts (including almonds), baking goods and other yummy treats I couldn’t say no.  With 4 bags of whole almonds, I beg [...]

Recipe: Coconut Flour Pancakes
I was recently inspired to make some “wheat-free” recipes, and this is for two reasons.  First, we’re traveling to India and parking ourselves there and within India, coconut is quite popular – as an oil, as a flour, as an Ayurvedic remedy. Secondly, I would love to build some non-gluten favorites for our family to enj [...]

Recipe: Chicken Noodle Soup
