It was a record year on the blog with over 45 million page views in total – WOW! I love to see so many people taking an interest in kicking highly processed food to the curb. So, in case you’re wondering, the list below summarizes what readers were most interested in this year.

I grew up drinking tea from a very young age. My father is Indian, and it’s custom to drink “Indian tea,” as we called it, or chai to others, a few times a day.
If you’ve never had (or heard of) Shrimp and Grits, it’s one you’ve gotta try!
As you hop from party to party this month I do think it’s nice to bring along a little something extra for the party host – entertaining is a lot of work after all!
The cookies I took to my neighbor’s cookie exchange were one of my all-time favorites – Snickerdoodles! I even used half whole-wheat flour to make them a little better, and I honestly don’t even think you could tell, because the outcome was deeelicious.
I have a little gift for you today. It’s all the recipes in my cookbook organized by dietary need in chart form. Most of this info is already listed in the back of the book, but it’s not in a chart, which I think makes things a little easier when it comes to families with more than one dietary need. PLUS I added a Peanut/Tree Nut Free column to this list, which is not already in the book. So all you have to do is click here (or on the chart below), select print, and voila – you now have a free tool to make navigating my book even easier. Oh and a bonus – for those who haven’t already purchased my book you can now see every single recipe that’s included! Enjoy :) Click image for free download:
Before you head out with your shopping list, we’d love to touch on what can be lurking in some of today’s kitchen and toy products. Hannah Helsabeck of Wild Mint has partnered up with us to share some of her knowledge on toxins and what to avoid. (And a special hint—read on down below for a great giveaway!)
If you’ve got lots of potluck events coming up this month, then I’ve got the perfect solution for you. Make a big batch of these super yummy (and also impressive) savory Pesto Cream Cheese Turnovers, throw them in your freezer, and then pull out (and defrost) however many you need to take to each event!
It’s that time again for a misleading product roundup to recap misleading food items I’ve been sharing on Facebook. I know we’re all currently caught up with the holiday craziness, but please don’t let the busyness cause you to be fooled by some of these highly processed products!
It’s officially the biggest shopping day of the year! So we figured why not offer you a few Black Friday “real” deals for the loved ones on your list (or hey, even for yourself—no judging here!)?
Carrie says she loves to pair this roast with a side of Greens with Onion and Bacon and Creamed Cauliflower (both also in her book and pictured below) for a complete meal.
