Indian Spiced Tomato and Black Bean Soup


Apple and Blueberry Crumble

This apple and blueberry crumble was exactly what I was looking for…

Since the beginning of June, I have cut out all refined sugars from my diet. Except for the coconut cookie the other day, but that doesn’t count because somebody made them and I had to be nice and eat one.¬†Ok, so since the beginning of June, I have tried very hard to cut out all refined sugars from my diet.

Anyways, I have been playing around with recipes that use sugar substitutes. Dessert is my favorite meal and if I was going to give up sugar, there was no way that I was giving up dessert. I had to find something to satisfy my sweet tooth.

I looked through my cookbook selection and came across Alicia Silverstone’s cookbook, The Kind Diet. Not only is it vegan, but it does not use processed foods or refined sugars in any of the recipes.

Chicken White Bean Chili Verde

A few mornings ago, I woke up and the ocean fog had rolled in overnight and cast a thick gray layer overhead. With a slight chill in the air, I knew that a big pot of this chicken white bean chili verde was about to be simmering on my stove.

I normally calculate how mild or severe the winter has been by how many times I have put on my heavy coat. After my very scientific calculation, I concluded that I had not put it on once this year, not once!

So, as you can imagine, I was all set for a cold day where I could snuggle up with a blanket and some warm soup. By noon, the fog had burned off and it was sunny and warm. This setback, however, did not interrupt my plans. I still made this chili!
