Updated March 2022! They weren’t the first frozen yogurt shop to feature dairy-free soft serve, but 16 Handles has definitely been the most innovative.

At last count, 16 Handles had 30…

I absolutely love the cute and creative food ideas that pop up for Halloween. But sometimes, they’re a bit intimidating. Luckily, this spooky eyes toast recipe is so easy, even kids (and less crafty adults, like me) can make it. It calls for basic, everyday ingredients, and takes minutes to make. You can serve these little toast pairs as a fun surprise for breakfast, pack them into lunch boxes for a little fright, or serve them at a Halloween party. They’re great for kids, but I also like this concept for work gatherings or casual Halloween get togethers. This recipe…

In honor of Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary and National Salad Month, the chefs at Dole created a Steamboat Willie Green Apple Waldorf Salad. I’ve adapted their recipe to be dairy-free, but it’s just as nutritious and delicious. Green Apple Waldorf Salad that’s Loaded with Healthy Ingredients This robust, meal-worthy salad is filled with fresh produce. The recipe is also naturally mayo-free and oil-free, but it did use Greek yogurt. I substituted part coconut cream and dairy-free yogurt to get the same rich consistency. The coconut cream also adds prized medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) to this dish. If your canned coconut milk…

I love Mexican nights – from both a cooking and eating perspective. They’re quick to throw together, and have great build-your-own potential. These dairy-free, gluten-free mushroom beef tacos, for example, are easy to prep, fast to cook, and everyone can top them however they wish. You can even use the mushroom-beef blend to build burritos or bowls instead of tacos. Mexican Mushroom Beef Tacos for Fast & Easy Allergy-Friendly Dinners Mushrooms cook seamlessly into beef dishes, so even picky eaters won’t notice them. But they add to the rich flavor of the dish while providing micronutrients like selenium, B vitamins,…

Sadly, the entire original Chobani Non-Dairy line, made with coconut, has been discontinued. But, they’ve moved forward with their dairy-free oat-based line. You can still get Chobani Oat Yogurt Cups and Chobani Oat Yogurt Blends. Despite releasing a new non-dairy line, Chobani is staunchly against using dairy terms like “milk” and “yogurt” on dairy-free products. This isn’t a debate that I would typically weigh in on, but Chobani has failed to address one major thing. If you don’t call it yogurt, what do you call it? They’ve simply slapped the name “Chobani Non-Dairy” on all of their dairy-free products, no…

This hearty beef stew is rich with flavor, but relatively light on fat and calories. How is that possible? First, the winter vegetables are roasted to promote caramelization and bring out their delicious flavors. Then a lean cut of beef is seared in just enough olive oil. Finally, red wine (or apple juice), stock, and herbs are simmered in the hearty beef stew to add body and aroma. And believe it or not, this hearty beef stew comes together rather quickly, making it an easy weeknight meal or a fulfilling weekend supper, particularly on chilly and snowy winter days. You can…

I recently learned of the very cool site, Reviews.com. They are an unbiased organization that reviews entire categories of products – from the best Treadmill to the best Credit Card – and this week, they revealed their picks for the best protein powder. Guess what? Out of 697 flavors of protein powder investigated, two dairy-free brands came out on top! And the Best Protein Powder is … The testing criteria required that the best protein powder would not contain any controversial food coloring (22 products cut), artificial sweeteners (487 products cut), or steroids (142 products cut). Finally they had to…

What sets these spicy Asian chicken wings apart from the rest is a flavorful tea marinade. Black teas from India, Sri Lanka and China, as well as the teas most common to Western Europe (such as English breakfast and Earl Grey) have a strong aromatic flavor that holds its own with heartier foods like meats, eggs, and dark chocolate. In keeping with the theme, serve these spicy Asian chicken wings with unsweetened black iced tea on warmer days, or a pot of your favorite hot black tea (Asian tea set is optional, but recommended) as the days shorten. This recipe is from Cynthia…

What an interesting divergence from your typically protein powder-enhanced bar. Epic Protein Bars are a unique cross between jerky and energy bars that get their protein exclusively from all-natural and grass-fed meat. All of the Epic Protein Bars are dairy-free, gluten-free, and almost Paleo (I don’t think our ancient ancestors were chowing on brown sugar-sweetened bacon), and they were a hit with me, since I follow a dairy-free, gluten-free and mostly grain-free diet. My wife liked that they use 100% grass-fed organic bison and beef and all-natural turkey (no antibiotics, fillers, etc.), and that the bars are free of nitrates or other funny…
