Recipe: Slow Cooker Sunday Roast (from the new Deliciously Organic cookbook!)

I’m so excited to tell you about my friend Carrie Vitt’s new cookbook today! Carrie’s blog, Deliciously Organic, began several years ago after she figured out she could overcome her debilitating migraines by switching to an organic diet. After experiencing the power of this change, she once again turned to real food when years later she started dealing with other unexplained health issues.

Shortly after a dental appointment gone wrong, she fell ill, lost all energy, and, worst of all, suddenly had painful hives all over her face and neck. For months she went from doctor to doctor until she eventually found one who agreed to help her figure out the root cause of her illness – instead of just treating her symptoms with prescription drugs. She was diagnosed with a thyroid autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s.

The doctor didn’t provide a very hopeful prognosis and thought she’d be on medication for the rest of her life. So Carrie decided to look elsewhere for solutions and met with a nutritionist who recommended a more holistic approach, which included a grain-free, nutrient-dense diet. She was obviously desperate at this point and willing to try almost anything! And it’s a good thing she did. Continue Reading »

Recipe: Spaghetti Squash + Roasted Tomato Sauce

This is a guest post by team member Kiran. To learn more about Kiran check out our team page!


Okay, I’m gonna be honest, I had a horrible experience with spaghetti squash in high school. Back then I was all into spaghetti, pasta, and basically anything that was full of refined carbs – thank goodness I found real food! Anyhow, I’d read these fantastic things about this vegetable that tasted almost like regular noodles but had all the benefits of a vegetable. I was sold! I headed to my closest grocery store and picked up a package of already prepared squash “noodles.” I took it home and heated it up, anxious to give my new-found favorite food a taste. But I just about gagged when I took the first bite. The rest went into the trash, and I vowed to never eat this food again.

Flash forward to just a few weeks ago. I was shopping at Trader Joe’s with my youngest, who spotted the snack station. They happened to be serving – you guessed it – spaghetti squash topped with a little marinara. Somewhat hesitant, I still gave it another shot. And this time I was really sold. On the taste. It was so yummy! I started chatting with another customer who gave me some tips on cooking them, and the next thing I knew, I found myself heading to the bin with these oval-shaped goodies. And so I’m here today to tell you about what a great, versatile dish this can make. So whether you’re already a spaghetti squash lover or you’re feeling fearful, I’ve got a great recipe for you to try.

Recipe: Homemade Chicken Pot Pie

Okay, I am not gonna lie – this is not your super quick weeknight kind of recipe. BUT if you were to chop all the veggies, cook and shred the chicken, and make the pie crust dough in advance I think it could happen on a busy night. And I don’t have to sell Chicken Pot Pie. We all know How. Incredibly. Delicious it is!

It’s possible though that I do have to talk you out of using convenience ingredients like cans of cream of mushroom soup and packaged pie crust. Trust me, making this dish from scratch in order to avoid highly processed additives like partially hydrogenated oils (i.e. trans fat), artificial dyes, and MSG is so worth it. Not only will it taste amazing, but you’ll feel good about the dish you’re serving your precious family.
