Disclaimer: this soup is for those who love celery root. If you have never tried it before, I suggest to start with a different recipe. For example, try the Celeriac Mash found in this post and see if you like the taste of celery root.

Celery root, also known as celeriac, is just what the name suggests – the root of a celery plant. The flesh of the celery root is white and starchy which makes it a good substitute for potatoes if you wish to reduce using potatoes in your diet due to it’s high glycemic index.

I like baking muffins on a Saturday morning so that we have something to snack on all weekend long. It’s also nice to have a house filled with the aroma of muffins and coffee on a weekend morning. These muffins taste great when they are still warm so no need to cool them completely before…

No Churn Vegan Mango Ice Cream

No Churn Vegan Mango Ice Cream

I really like ice cream but can’t have much of the store bought kind because it usually has too much sugar. Even the healthier ice cream is still too sweet for me. In addition, I don’t like to eat dairy with sugar because it pretty much guarantees me a blood sugar crush. So, for myself…

7 Shades of Green Spring Quinoa Salad

Fist of all, I would like to publicly declare that I haven’t watched that movie (you know which movie I am referring to, right?). And I haven’t read the book either. I’ve heard mixed reviews from friends, starting from “it’s just a movie” to “it’s offensive to women and people should boycott it” and everything…

Homemade Sugar Free Granola

I know you are going to love this granola recipe because it’s sugar free and naturally sweetened with apple sauce. Store-bought granola is usually full of sugar and not so healthy fat.
