Initially from Europe, eggnog was once only a drink of high society (and didn’t contain alcohol – gasp!) to toast to one’s health. Luckily, milk and eggs are no longer rare commodities and all can enjoy this creamy, comforting holiday tradition. Since the 17th century, eggnog has been twisted and tinkered with to satisfy different tastes. In this version, you’ll enjoy all the original flavors of egg, cream and sugar without tummy troubles or an aching hangover. Cheers to that! Read more →

Turn back the clock to 10 years ago and say “Coconut oil.” Odds are that people would say “Huh?’ Now coconut oil has become one of the hottest food trends, along with all coconut-related products. Coconut oil ranks in the category of healthy fats. In order for your body to absorb certain types of vitamins, which are known as fat-soluble supplements, your body needs fat – and coconut oil is a great way to fulfill that need. Coconut oil also contains lauric acid, a unique medium-chain fatty acid that may offer some health benefits.*
One sip and you’ll know: this blue-hued beverage is no ordinary smoothie. Sweet, creamy coconut milk takes the place of typical dairy or non-dairy milk, while fresh ginger adds zing to the mild blueberry flavor. The best part? Not one but three power-packed protein ingredients are blended in, making this gourmet drink as nourishing as it is delicious.
Almond butter is tempting on toast or crackers, but don’t stop at spreading when it comes to splurging on this creamy, nutty treat. Scoop some into your blender along with a can of pumpkin, a splash of coconut milk and a couple of spices for a quick, tasty pudding that doubles as dessert or a healthy snack.
Why bother with white sugar when raw honey is just as sweet–and good for you?! “Raw” refers to the non-filtered, non-processed form of this sticky substance, made by bees from the nectar of flowers. In its pure, natural state, honey is swimming with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, live enzymes and other beneficial nutrients. Plus, it tastes great, whether swirled into a cup of hot tea, drizzled over a warm muffin or eaten straight from the spoon!
Comfort food doesn’t have to be unhealthy. Instead of reaching for a calorie-dense snack, try a bowl of this delicious veggie-packed soup, courtesy of Chef Oonagh Williams.
Fast food that’s healthy? You can’t score one of these “burgers” in a drive-through, but in less time than it takes to wait in line, you can make a meal far better for you than anything brought home in a hurry. Combine sautéed fresh vegetables, white beans and hemp powder for a hearty, protein-packed patty, then pan fry in coconut oil for a tropical taste!
