Fixate On This Recipe

tuna-cucumber-salad

While I have FINALLY finished “MUNCHING THE MED“… It’s going to take a hot minute or two for me to get over my EXTREME EUROPEAN FOOD COMA… So in the meantime, here’s a message from “our” sponsors… Autumn is the time of year where pumpkins tend to whore themselves out worse than juicing tries to convince you that it’s healthier than eating the actual piece of produce (but you don’t fall for that, right?). Don’t get me wrong, I love [Read On!]

This ICE Is Nuts

COCONUT LIME POPSICLES

A lot of people think I am kind of nuts. My rebuttal to this claim is typically: If the saying, you are what you eat, holds true… Then I am 100% NOT nuts… Because I cannot eat them!  However… Some might consider coconut to be a nut (NEWSFLASH: it’s a fruit), and as you all may very well know at this point, coconut byproducts are my go-to staples for pretty much all of my recipes (although I have yet to make [Read On!]

Not Zipping My Lips Over This!

Dairy, Gluten, Soy, Sugar, Nut, Fruit- Free

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ZiplocBackToSchool #CollectiveBias    I am not one to zip and lock my lips… Ever. In other words, I “suffer” from what you might call, “word vomit,” much to my mother’s chagrin. I could blame genetics… But I mean, I won’t? So when there are thoughts/ideas swimming through my mind, my mouth fires them out like cannon balls. Anyone cannon ball into a pool yet this summer? [Read On!]

Top 10 Daily Tips for a Healthy and Fit 2016, Guest Post

Brownie-Protein-Bars-No-Bake

Maybe you know me as the delicious recipe creator, pumpkin-loving, graduate school girl who’s on her way to be a registered dietitian over here in the blog atmosphere… Or the girl that challenges bouncers to push up contests… More probable though, you remember me as THIS girl who made an appearance in Gigi’s Top 10 Fit Foods post and video… Or our video of taste testing Whole Foods Frozen Meals that ended in this… But honestly, the most likely situation [Read On!]

The Unicorn of Pumpkin Pies

white-pumpkin-pumpkin-pie-unicorn-pie

Recipe evolution is much like the game “Telephone”… Who else is now humming Lady Gaga’s song… SORRY! That recipe your mother or father passed down to you; may not be anything close to what the original recipe was. Great Grandma Gladice’s stick to your ribs stuffing very well may have included ham hocks way back when she was introduced to it, but her recipe you now make for your friends and family contains chicken feet instead. The same can be [Read On!]

Stuff Everything But The Kitchen Sink, In Your Mouth

Vegan-Stuffed-Acorn-Squash

GiGi Eats Celebrities has opened the door to a Narnia-like domain for myself (and perhaps all of you as well, when you stop by). I have conducted much sorcery in this sphere of mine… I mean, have you seen… This pie that will make you cream… Or these HEALTHY Oreos… What about these MEAT BAGELS? In my dimension, I’ve accomplished… Just to name a few… Co-piloting a commercial flight alongside Denzel Washington… Throwing jabs at Kevin James in an MMA fight… [Read On!]

A Tasty Recipe For Disaster!

Vegan-Artichoke-Celery-Root-Puree made by Leslie Durso

I should really get a tattoo on my forehead that saying WARNING: Ticking Time Bomb… I will detonate if even just an iota of a food I am allergic or intolerant to seeps into my intricate system. It’s hard for some people to swallow the amount of intolerances I have… And after giving the laundry list to those who ask… I often need a nap because it’s exhausting. However, I woke from my quick doze-off when Leslie Durso arrived at my doorstep, [Read On!]

The D Train: Are You On It?

Jack Black GiGi Dubois James Marsden

As you may remember… In all of the MEN IN BLACK movies… Extraterrestrials walk among human-beings, posing as humans themselves… And aside from Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and the rest of the MIB gang… Human beings are oblivious…. Although… Sometimes we do suspect… Something. What if I told you that… this movie is very much NONFICTION… Well, okay… If you relate it to… FOOD.  HOLD UP! I guess the “aliens walking among us” idea could actually be real, but WHO [Read On!]

Protein-Packed Crunchy Love Bites

Healthy Chocolate Truffles with Hemp Seeds, No Bake, Manitoba Harvest

You know that one day of the year (that happened to have just past) where everyone showers their loved ones with flowers, candies and chocolate hot sauce in bed other gifts (ahem, how many of you got engaged and/or married on this day?)? Well I don’t get why showing your love for others is dedicated to only one single day of the year… Shouldn’t you be experimenting in the bedroom on the daily? You see, my Valentine’s Day wasn’t all that different from any [Read On!]

Maria Menounos, Thank You!

Maria Menounos Eggplant Casserole, Every Girl's Guide to Diet & Fitness

We should all really be thankful every single day of our lives… However Thanksgiving week tends to bring out the thankfulness in even the deadliest of hippos… That being said… I just want to take a minute to appreciate a few things* I feel as though I have been taking for granted lately…. So thank you… EGGPLANT for… Being a silky smooth “operator” and taking a page from the Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger’s book and morphing into lasagna noodles for all those paleo, gluten-free, [Read On!]

Cozy Up With A Bowl of Johnny Depp

Vegan Paleo Mac and Cheese

We all have fantasies, am I right? Some of us want to run a marathon in under a two hours… Others want to feed their signature recipes to Al Roker as he reports the weather on the Today Show… While a select few of us want to go sledding down a frozen cloud, splashing into a hot spring filled with Ryan Gosling and Reynolds clones… Only to be immediately served some sizzling salmon skin by Eric Winter in gonad squeezers… Oh, [Read On!]
