I’ve come to a desperate point in losing the baby weight where it’s just not coming off anymore. We eat really healthy. I’m nursing. But can’t exercise (awesome abdominal injury). So it’s really frustrating that there’s not much more I can do! Enter: 17 Day Diet. I’d never heard of it until a FB friend […]

There is a fabulous Korean spa that my mom religiously goes to in Dallas called King Spa and Sauna. It is an amazing and relaxing place with unbelievable health benefits. We’ve made a monthly date of it with our BFs. They are HOOKED now, too! “Utilizing ancient Asian treatments, King Spa and Sauna provides the […]

    Put as many eggs as you’d like to do onto a rimmed baking sheet and put into a cold oven.

    Hello, do you not need water or salt?
    Wont they explode without water?Ive seen this recipe done in a rice steamer.ReplyCancel

    • They won’t explode :) I make these all the time this way and have no issues. No water needed. I do salt them before eating, though!ReplyCancel

These were made as an easy and healthy snack that hubs could take to work, but I’ve started to double the recipe so that we can have some at home, too. They’re super filling and delicious- a perfect midday snack to carry you between meals.       Prep: 10 minutes Serves: 10-15 balls   […]

    Dafni, I’m totally stalking your entire blog recently because I’ve decided (finally) that whole and unprocessed foods are truly the way to go. But I have so many questions! I hope you’ll be able to find them on here and respond. I apologize in advance. First, for this recipe, do you just use Craisins for the cranberries? Also, where do you get not-crazy-expensive ground flax seed, oat flour, almond meal, almond butter, etc? I feel like no regular grocery store sells it here in Ann Arbor, which is kind of crazy, and things are REALLY expensive at our Whole Foods. Ideas?ReplyCancel

  • Katie! What an awesome decision! :) I am of course 100% fine with any and all questions that you have! I’ll try my best to answer them.

    I just buy regular dried cranberries. Those would be fine, really any dried fruit that you want. Just watch the ingredients for added sugar and preservatives.

    I get ground flax at Sprouts. I don’t think you guys have that in Michigan :/ You don’t need much of it, so that may be ok to get at Whole Foods. You may also want to do research and see if there are any Sprouts-type stores in your area as an alternative.

    Almond meal is best blanched, and there’s not really any way around the cost of that. Nuts are expensive. Honeyville almond flour is supposed to be good quality and fair price. Buying in bulk online will probably be the most cost-efficient.

    Oat flour you can make yourself! Buy rolled oats and grind them in your food processor or blender. Love how easy and cheap this is because oats are not at all expensive!

    Almond butter is also expensive, but we get it at Costco for a ridiculous price. I love Costco for a lot of reasons, but their selection of organic/natural foods is a huge one. That’s where we get our organic eggs, almond butter, rice milk, organic pure cane sugar, etc. Oh! They also have big bags of flax seed, too. Maybe that’s something to look into. :) Huge savings there.ReplyCancel

I had a funny experience last night while making dinner that I thought I’d share. I made honey roasted chicken and started making a gravy from the pan drippings once I took the chicken out of the oven. Now, I make sauces all the time this way. This was a 100% LARGE brain fart that […]

This is a recipe that my Safta (Hebrew for grandma) makes frequently. I Skyped with my Mom last night for a few minutes to show her the girls and found out that we were both making them for dinner. That’s how good they are. You can make these as a side or eat them on […]
