These muffins are super moist, flavorful and loaded with veggies, fruit, and seeds. They are the perfect fast and healthy start to your day!  I bought a giant bag of spelt flour since I’ve been doing some research on wheat alternatives.  Spelt flour is an ancient grain and a distant cousin to wheat.   I have read that most people that suffer from wheat allergies …

Plantain, Flax, and Chia crusted baked Chicken Parmesan (Gluten Free) with Zoodles & Pasta

I’m calling this one a Mexican rainbow power salad because it has the best ingredients in it to keep you full and give you energy to make it through the day, plus a really flavorful and zesty dressing that’s inspired by Mexican cuisine.  It’s filled with vegetables, seeds, beans, quinoa and a little dollop of goat cheese that I rolled up in the palm of …
