If you’ve been following me on Instagram for the last couple of months, you might have seen I have a new favorite dish to make–my 6 minute salmon. As much as we all say we like variety, most of us eat the same foods over and over again. I’m no different from anyone else in that way, though some of foods/meals I …

Smoky Coffee BBQ Spice Rub | Diane Sanfilippo

Smoky Coffee BBQ Spice Rub (Trader Joe’s copycat, made organic!)

Diane Sanfilippo 21DSD, Basics, Recipes, Spices & Seasonings 8 Comments

I recently purchased a BBQ coffee spice rub from Trader Joe’s that many of you may be familiar with as well. It’s delicious, but, sadly, it’s not organic. Most of the spices at Trader Joe’s aren’t organic. And while I’m not against using non-organic spices now and then, I typically seek out better quality spices to be in my regular …

Homemade Almond Milk & Almond Meal

Diane Sanfilippo Basics, Breakfast, Recipes, Treats & Sweets 0 Comments

I recently posted a few photos to social media of almond milk labels and Nutrition Facts/ingredients panels. Much to the surprise of many of you, a very popularly sold brand that is stocked in the cold section of the grocery store (health-washing at its finest here, folks – you’re tricked into thinking it’s healthier since it’s sold as perishable, sigh…) …

Perfectly Grilled Chicken Breast

Diane Sanfilippo 21DSD, Basics, Poultry, Recipes, The 21-Day Sugar Detox 0 Comments

This grilled chicken breast recipe is hands down my favorite way to prepare this cut of chicken and prevent it from drying out. Cooking whole chicken breast tends to be one of the easiest things to mess up in the kitchen, yet many people attempt it first! The biggest trick to this recipe is to butterfly the chicken breast ahead of seasoning or marinating to grill …

Easy Recipe: Home-Brewed Kombucha

Diane Sanfilippo 21DSD, Basics 149 Comments

The first time I tried kombucha was in 2007. I was working at Lululemon Athletica part-time in San Francisco while I was working on the business plan for Balanced Bites – originally a grass-fed/organic meal delivery business. Yes, really. One of the many cool things about working at the store was that we’d get a “treat” each morning or evening …

How to: Make Clarified Butter or Ghee

Diane Sanfilippo 21DSD, Basics 48 Comments

It’s been a while since I made clarified butter or ghee. Heck, our kitchen has been under construction for about two months, so, it’s been a while since I made anything other than quickly skillet-cooked or grilled food! I was thrilled to not only see one of my favorite grass-fed butters (SMJÖR brand) on sale at my local Whole Foods, …
