Boy o’ boy have I got a yummy recipe for you today!

How is it already the end of April? Yipeee for May this week.


This cornbread recipe is soft and moist- and guess what? It doesn’t contain any gluten, grains, soy, nuts or dairy!

I’ve been having a ball in the kitchen experimenting with coconut oil and I’m excited to share this successful recipe with you guys.


I added a touch of cinnamon, orange zest and chocolate chips just because…well, by now I think you all know I can’t simply just create a plain Jane recipe. No sir. I’m always tossing a few different odds n’ ends into my recipes to make them unique and fun for your taste buds.

Now grab that organic cornmeal and get to work.


You’ve gotta fabulous desert waiting for you right here.




And if you are free TONIGHT, join me at 6 PM EST on the Barlean’s Facebook Page where I will be LIVE answering your questions on Detox, Inflammation, Autoimmune Disease, Healthy Recipe Ideas and much more. We’ll be giving away prizes to FOUR lucky attendees!

Hope to see you all there!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
