Vietnamese Salad With Calamari

GLUTEN-FREE | GRAIN-FREE |  DAIRY-FREE


This colorful salad is light but filling and perfect for summer. The calamari are cooked quickly -- so they stay tender and juicy -- then dressed with sour lime juice, savory fish sauce, a touch of honey for sweetness, and the brights flavors of mint and cilantro -- so they are incredibly flavorful as well.

Coconut Lime Smoothie Pops

GLUTEN-FREE | DAIRY-FREE | DETOX-FRIENDLY


I'll let you in on a little secret: I'm not that big on smoothies. I usually prefer to chew my food. But sometimes smoothies are good options. Like when you need breakfast on the run. When your digestive system needs a rest. When you need to incorporate liquid or powdered supplements or an extra handful of greens into your daily routine. When you need a quick protein-filled snack. Or when you're doing a detox.

Dark Chocolate Roulade with Raspberry Cream

GLUTEN-FREE | GRAIN-FREE | NO ADDED SUGAR


For Father's Day I'll be serving my dad this light and fluffy dessert. It does require a few steps but none are too difficult and it's certainly worth the trouble for a special occasion.

Because the chocolate cake is really just a large, flat souffle made of egg whites and dark chocolate, there isn't any flour and this dish is gluten-free. There is also no added sugar. The filling is composed of cream and raspberries, which makes it just sweet enough and unbelievably light.
