In the process, we come across some amazing resources for easy meals that prove cooking healthy doesn't have to be expensive or a giant time suck. And now, we want to make a habit of sharing them with you!
This week's featured foodie is Alexis of Lexi's Clean Kitchen. After discovering firsthand the healing power of food, she was inspired to create recipes that omit negative health instigators, like gluten, grains, most dairy, and refined sugars, while still delivering serious flavor.
