You may find as you get older that your body does not tolerate dairy like it used to. All my life I’ve been sensitive to dairy and instead of taking pills every time I ate it, I decided to find some recipes that were dairy free but still delicious. Now these recipes also don’t contain any meat but can always be modified to include it.

It’s everyone’s favorite holiday! At least mine anyway. There’s just something about this day that makes me want to go a little crazy (probably all of that green beer). But before we indulge ourselves in adult beverages, let’s be sure we celebrate first with some good ‘ol Irish food. Here are some recipes to get you in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit!

Happy Monday friends and fellow bloggers. I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to the work week. This weekend I did a little overindulging so I’m going to give my body a much needed break and refuel it with a lot of delicious and nutritious vegetables. So these recipes I am going to share with you contain no meat but can definitely be modified to include meat if you were good and didn’t over do it this weekend like me. These recipes still pack a protein punch so your body will be able to rejuvenate and your stomach will be just as happy!

Happy March everyone! This month snuck up on me as well. If the months keep passing this quickly,it’ll be 2018 before we know it. With March comes (almost) the beginning of Spring so I know we are all itching to start growing our own fresh fruits and vegetables to use in our recipes. So here’s a look at what’s in season for March and what yummy concoctions you can come up with to use all of these incredible ingredients.
