Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin, & Zucchini Muffins

It is just about that time of year again when the fall baking has begun and pumpkin flavor makes its big debut. Soon enough your kitchen will begin to smell like pumpkin spice and everything nice, but all those sweet pumpkin treats might add up quicker than you think. It seems you can’t go anywhere…

Cheers For Being 5 Years Soy-Free!

…and why I still choose to be soy-free for another 100 years.   It was a long and winding road, before I started to feel healthy again. I was in a state of slight depression at the time, thinking I would never regain access to my former chipper self. Where did I go wrong, how did…

“Lemon Poppy Seed Almond Cake with Raspberry Glaze”

Who has a birthday without the birthday cake? For The Healthy Chew’s 1st Birthday, I decided a little cake was in order. I wanted to have my cake and eat it too! But I didn’t want just any cake, I wanted to create something special. This cake embodies a nutty and savory yet zesty lemon flavor,…

“Herb Frittata”

I don’t know about you but here in the Rackley household, we tend to be a little uncreative when it comes to breakfast time. I personally like to start out the day with something that leaves me feeling good, you know like something healthy and contains quite a bit of protein. Most days, that leaves…

Happy Fall Y’all, we are just now beginning to see a drop in our 100 degree weather. Evening walks with our dog, Winston finally calls for a light sweater, but I would be crazy to say that I need boots when going outside. Regardless of the weather outside, when the calendar turns it’s page to…

“Oatmeal Apple Pie Bars”

I think it’s safe to say, “Happy Fall Y’all” in Texas. The cooler weather finally decided to come knocking at the door, and when I say cooler weather I really mean a temperature drop to 80 degree weather instead of 99 degrees. Southern girls get a little ahead of ourselves this time of year, there…

“Cranberry Walnut Energy Muffins”

Cranberry, walnuts, flax oh my! These muffins are so protein and energy packed they should be your next go-to snack to make. These little guys are great for two reasons, 1. they fill you up and 2. they don’t contain any refined oil, sugar, butter, dairy or soy. Okay so maybe that was six reasons…

“Orange Infused Almond Cookies”

Gluten, Soy & Dairy Free These simple almond cookies are the perfect fix for that sweet tooth that craves all things bad for you. When I went looking for a cookie recipe that contained neither butter nor oil, I didn’t realize it was like looking for a needle in a haystack. Most cookie recipes out…
