Lighter and healthier than the traditionally sugary edibles we’re used to, these baked fries are vegan, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly. Opt to infuse your own cooking oil at home using avocado oil or olive oil, or for an easier alternative, ask your dispensary if it sells pre-infused oils.
Halloween has earned itself a bad reputation for kicking off unhealthy habits that last for the rest of the year. Once you get started, it’s hard to stop.

At one point this past summer (a point that I’m not particularly proud of), I ate burgers for dinner for an entire week straight. In my defense, I was on a burger-high from discovering Ashley Rodriguez’s special burger sauce, had just discovered that my Emergency-Use-Only Fire Escape doubled as the perfect Burger-Eating Nook, and was doing “research” for an article. My recipe was simple and unchanging: I layered buns swiped with Ashley’s sauce, a freshly-ground patty, a tomato slice, onion rounds, and arugula.

These holiday wreaths will make a festive display. Light and crisp in texture and flavored with fresh lemon and herbaceous thyme, they taste as good as they look.
I was so excited to receive a copy of Purely Elizabeth’s new cookbook, aptly named “eat purely.” I’ve long been a fan of Elizabeth’s granolas and oatmeals packed with goodies like organic puffed amaranth, organic quinoa flakes, organic millet flakes, chia seeds, and more – and often stuff them in my bag during last minute travels. This recipe makes about 30 cookies but you can easily half it! INGREDIENTS 1 cup Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Original Oatmeal 1 cup almond flour ¾ cup millet flour ½ cup olive oil ¼ cup maple syrup ½ cup coconut sugar 3 tablespoons chia seeds ½ tsp Himalayan sea salt raspberry chia jam 1 cup frozen raspberries Chia seeds maple syrup METHOD For the chia jam: Warm the raspberries or let defrost to room temperature. Use the back of a fork to mash together with about a tablespoon of chia seeds and sweetener to taste. Set aside for a few minutes until the chia seeds begin to expand.
