Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2014
These are very good but I ALWAYS use organic extra virgin olive oil in baking, not canola or other refined oils which are so highly processed our cells do not recognize them as fats, let alone healthy fats. You cannot taste the olive oil in baked goods. I keep the oven at 325 degrees for all baked goods because EEVO has a "smoke point" of 325 degrees at which it oxidizes and forms free radicals, turning one of the healthiest fats into a health damaging one. I used half the sugar and added a little stevia powder. I stirred a small chunk of cooked beet into the batter for color, then removed it instead of using chemical food coloring. With these changes I felt good about serving these, otherwise they're a flour/sugar bomb with artificial oil. Next time I'm going to try all purpose gluten free flour to save time... and experiment with a portion being coconut flour since it has such a low glycemic index. Thanks for the recipe, we love red velvet!

Italian Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
DELISH BUT NOT HEALTHY AS WRITTEN. I'm surprised at how many recipes give a false sense of health. Frying/ browning food in oil creates carcinogens, so I always cook in a small amount of water or broth and add organic EEVO at the end of cooking for the health benefits. I stirred in the chopped spinach at the last minute and used organic since spinach is high in pesticides and loses nutrients when cooked. Fresh chopped tomatoes added near the end so not mushy (and some dried basil and oregano) instead of canned since acidic foods leach more chemicals from the can lining. Half quinoa and half pasta, plus 1/2 can cannellini beans and it was really good. Organic cheese instead of factory farmed. And we SAVE money by eating healthy:) (and not buying unnecessary chemicals like air and fabric fresheners, etc.) Thanks for the yummy base recipe!

Easy Lemon and Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
Really good!! BRIGHT GREEN broccoli has antioxidants in the green color at their peak, and 10-15 minutes is too long. I cooked it for about 4 minutes, cut in smaller pieces so the stems were tender crisp.
