I don’t usually pay much attention to oil use, or fat-free-ness: when my kitchen plans hum along normally, I find that a whole-food plant-based diet sort of naturally works out for me health-and-weight-wise, without oil restriction needed.

Bringing Back Butterscotch in a Healthy, Organic, Low Calorie Pudding (that’s vegetarian and gluten-free, too!)
One of the toughest parts of the holidays is indulging in rich, high calorie desserts. And you’ll be hard pressed to find a bakery with organic goodies on display. But the most difficult, for me, is baking at home where the temptation to voraciously consume an entire bowl of gooey batter is too much to resist […]
