Whole foods such as whole wheat, whole grains, and unrefined sugars produce lower levels of sugars in the body when broken down by the digestive system.

  2. Coconut Sugar Blood Orange Cake

    “This time around it’s a coconut sugar and blood orange cake. While coconut sugar is not exactly new, and debate rages on as to whether coconut sugar is a good alternative to regular sugar I had fun playing with it the other day, I really enjoyed using it in this Blood Orange Cake.”

  3. Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake with Cashew Cream and Figs

    “The whole wheat and almond meal give the cake a hearty texture that becomes fudgier and moister after a day or two. Instead of sugary glaze, I opted for cashew creaam, which I have decided is a truly magical thing. It’s buttery and not overly sweet, like fluffier nut butter.”

  4. Oprah’s Favorite Grilled Cheese

    “Everyone we’ve ever made these for has been so hesitant about the ingredients list, whole wheat bread, havarti cheese, fresh basil, garden tomatoes, and honey. Yes, honey. And trust me it’s exactly what the sandwich needs. It’s like a little twist on the classic caprese flavors.”

  5. Blackberry Amaranth Porridge

    “Unlike Cream of Wheat, amaranth is gluten-free and a good source of fiber, protein, amino acids and magnesium. It also makes a simple, quick breakfast. I use fresh blackberries and a raw blackberry honey but you can substitute regular honey and any berry you like.”
