“Where do I find calcium in a plant-centric diet? What are sources of calcium?”. This is such a common question I receive from readers all over the globe and my clients. In regards to health and our bodies, calcium is a mineral required in the body for multiple processes and most importantly bone and skeletal health. Calcium isn’t just needed for strong and healthy bones; calcium plays a vital role in muscle contraction (think of our heart, a muscle!), hormonal secretion, nerve function, messaging between cells, and vascular contraction/vasodilation (i.e. blood flow). Our bodies do a pretty amazing job at keeping the calcium in our blood tightly regulated, meaning no matter what, our bodies try to keep it from fluctuating. A downside to this regulation is calcium can be leached from our bones (i.e. a calcium reservoir) if we’re not supplying our body’s externally with enough calcium. So, how in the world can we get enough calcium if we’re eating plant-based foods or a dairy-free lifestyle? Simple.
Vanilla Bean Banana Crepes, a.k.a. the easiest crepe you’ll ever make… a.k.a. the only crepe recipe you may ever need (actually, I lied there are more crepe recipes in the Nutrition Stripped cookbook that are must trys). Bold statements I know, but they couldn’t be more true! I know how often I describe my food and recipes to be simple, but that’s what I’m all about. Creating really delicious whole food recipes and making them simple enough for everyone to make across the globe- no matter if you’re a foodie or not.

Hello fall (insert hand wave). My favorite fall fruit by far is the apple. I’m constantly trying new ways to use apples or reinventing the wheel on classic recipes using apples. This cookie recipe was inspired by an apple crisp believe it or not- apple crisps are incredibly simple to make and contain apples, raisins, oats, and typically a fat (like butter) or a sweetener (like refined sugar). Obviously in the Nutrition Stripped lifestyle, we’re all about whole foods, therefore I’m letting raisins to the sweetening and turning to tahini for some of the fat as a binder. Also, these are naturally gluten free and vegan taboot- a win win for everyone.
