It tastes better than tuna fish and actually has more health benefits. This quick and easy salmon recipe is for those days when I am feeling a little bit lazy. All you need to do is chop up the ingredients mix everything up and enjoy with crackers, toast or by the spoonful!

Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Make sure to break up the salmon with a fork so there aren’t any big chunks. Serve with veggies, crackers, toast, or enjoy your salmon salad with a spoon!
Easter is almost here and I have been searching Pinterest all week for some interesting and healthier desserts to make. I wanted to keep whatever I am going to be making gluten and dairy free as there are some people in my family who are avoiding them at the moment.
There are so many pretty and delicious looking ideas on Pinterest that I am having a hard time deciding what to make! I was thinking I would go the vegan cheesecake route but then I heard the Pale Lemon Cupcakes calling my name!
Maybe you could help me decide what to make!
Paleo, Gluten or Dairy Free Easter Dessert Recipes
Normally I wouldn’t bother recreating candy that you could buy at the store but sadly Cadbury Creme Eggs are not gluten free. This recipe seems easy so I am considering making it. I mean what is easter without Cadbury Creme Eggs?
I have been seeing unicorn everything lately. Unicorn lattes, toast, makeup brushes, you name it! So why would cheesecake be any different? This is another recipe that’s visually stunning and sure to impress.
These mini egg balls are in cookie dough form (eggless) and couldn’t be cuter! Anything that involves cookie dough is alright with me! They are simple to make, so even if I don’t make them for Easter I will be trying these out another time!
Oh my gosh! This is just about the prettiest cheesecake I have ever seen! The pretty pink color and how she decorated the cake with flowers and strawberries. It is just perfection! I’m sure this recipe will be quite impressive to your guests.
Which ones would you like to try? I’m still undecided so help me out and let me know in the comments!
Green tea and oatmeal two of my biggest breakfast obsessions. I decided that I needed to combine these two ingredients to make the ultimate breakfast oatmeal made with green tea! Beware! This oatmeal has a very strong green tea flavor so if you aren’t a green tea lover like I am then it might not be for you.
For this recipe, I used matcha green tea powder. Matcha green tea powder is just ground green tea leaves, which means it has a very strong green tea flavor and is packed with antioxidants! In Japan, this is the powder that is used for the tea in their traditional tea ceremonies. You can find matcha powder at your local Asian market, online or at Teavana.
1/2 Packet of Stevia or sweetener of choice (optional)
Splash of milk, almond milk or coconut milk
Brew a cup of your favorite green tea. While the tea is brewing pour oats into a microwavable bowl. Once the tea is ready, pour 1 tsp. matcha powder into the brewed green tea and stir until it is dissolved. Pour over the oats, and microwave for about a minute and a half. Top with blueberries, sweetener and a splash of milk for added creaminess.

There you have it! A simple and healthy oatmeal recipe. What are your favorite oatmeal recipes? Do you love matcha green tea as much as I do? Let me know in the comments or on social media!
I will admit it. I have an addiction, a really really big addiction to nut butters! Nut butters are just so creamy, smooth, filling, versatile and tasty that I just can’t get enough! My favorite nut butter of all time is almond butter but sometimes you just gotta have a change. That’s when I decided to use up some of the pecans sitting in my cabinet and make some pecan butter! Not just any pecan butter though, a chocolate coconut pecan butter! This simple recipe will go great with fruit, graham crackers or just eaten off of a spoon!!
Feel free to adjust the amounts of each ingredient to suit your tastes. You can use more coconut oil or even a little water for a creamier butter. You can even adjust the amount and type of sweetener (sugar, honey, agave, etc.) you use. Try it out and let me know how you like it!

Mini Berry Cream Pies– These mini berry cream pies look impressive and are so simple to make. You simply pour the pie mixture into mini phyllo cups and serve.
Blueberry Squares – These blueberry squares from Eating Well are so pretty and look sooo good! These will take a little more time than the mini berry pies, as you are making the crust from scratch, but they sure do look worth the extra effort.
Whipped Berry Pudding– I’m noticing a trend here with the berries! This berry pudding only has 5 ingredients and looks super easy to make. Just be sure to make it ahead of time because it needs to set in the fridge for about two hours to set.
Red White and Blue Fruit Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt Dip– This one is perfect if you are not a big fan of berries. It’s a low fat cheesecake dip that you can serve with slices of cake, fruit, graham crackers or anything else you can think of! Maybe you can be extra festive and add red or blue food coloring to the dip.
4th Of July Bark– Another recipe that I always make for Christmas is white and dark chocolate bark. For Christmas I will add in candy canes, but this recipe uses red, white and blue sprinkles and M&M’s.
Firecracker Popcorn– This cute easy recipe is a festive way to dress up popcorn for the holiday! It includes drizzled white chocolate and rock pops. So much fun!
Rocket Pops– Made with Jello and Cool Whip these festive ice pops are a fun way to cool off on the 4th of July.

For the past few days I have had a huge hankering for a bowl of crunchy sweet granola. For me, granola is a comfort food, it’s right up there with mac and cheese, garlic mash, and a hot cup of coffee (I wouldn’t eat that all at once of course…….or would I hmmm).
Whenever I make granola, I like to peek inside my cabinets and throw in whatever dried fruits and nuts I have.After noticing how much dried coconut I had in my cabinets, I decided to go with a coconut granola. I already had an opened can of coconut milk in my fridge, so I wen ahead and added a bit to my granola. Since the coconut milk adds a little bit more moisture, you are going to have to bake the granola for a little longer than usual in order to dry it out, but it’s worth it! I think that this recipe would also taste great with some coconut extract for an extra kick of flavor and maybe even some dried pineapple or mango. Try it out and let me know what you think!
