This is my version of the creamy tahini and lemon “Goddess” dressing that Annie’s made famous. Hat tip to my friend, Kat, who made her own version that was so delicious that I just had to replicate it!
We looooove kale chips in the Fotheringham household: they’re delicious, nutritious, and satisfying, and they provide a bit of salty, crunchy goodness in our lives without us having to resort to less healthy alternatives (I’m looking at you, soybean oil laden tortilla chips…). Plus, they provide a painless way for veggie-phobes and picky eaters to get more greens into their diet. The problem? They are ridiculously expensive when you buy them premade at the store (not to mention the ecological implications associated with the packaging, desiccant packs, etc.). Fortunately, they are super easy to make at home!
So, you’re doing a sugar detox, like the Radiant Reboot, the RESTART® Program, or the 21-Day Sugar Detox and you need some low-sugar, clean-eating recipes to try. Look no further!

Recently, a friend posted something online about the grossness of processed meat and how it made her “want to go vegetarian.”
It got me thinking about how many of us think that there are only two options:
Eat meat and support horrible, unethical factory-farming processes and grain-feeding (not the animal’s natural diet), OR
Abstain from meat altogether and be vegetarian.
What makes this more of a compelling argument is the common misconceptions that fat is bad for us, that cholesterol is bad for us, and red meat is bad for us. Doesn’t it seem like going vegetarian is a better answer?
Most store-bought salad dressings have things like high fructose corn syrup (or even just sugar), thickeners, gums, preservatives, highly refined vegetable oils, and all kinds of other yucky, inflammatory ingredients. Luckily, there are options for making your own, and it doesn’t have to be difficult.
For nearly two decades, we’ve been bombarded with sensationalist headlines claiming that “red meat causes cancer.” Terrified by the news, many people have significantly limited or completely given up their consumption of beef and other red meats, opting instead for chicken or fish. Some have decided to give up meat altogether, adopting vegetarian or vegan lifestyles they believe are better for their bodies and the planet. As you will see below, however, not only does red meat not cause cancer, it is in fact an extremely healthful, nutrient dense food that can help you avoid the very degenerative diseases it’s been claimed to cause.
