Recipes & Resources // jessicaespinoza.com

Real food and clean products are the foundation of our wellness. I have compiled this online resource of my favorite healthy recipes, products, and services that I use every day in my home.

RECIPES

All of my delicious real food recipes are found on my Delicious Obsessions website. After 5+ years of recipe development and creation, we have 100s of tasty items to suit almost any dietary style of eating. Almost all the recipes are going to be gluten-free, with a large chunk being dairy-free as well. In addition, you can easily find the recipes that are completely grain-free and autoimmune protocol (AIP) friendly as well. In addition, there is a wide range of information on real food nutrition, tips, tricks, kitchen hacks, and more.

DIY TUTORIALS & HOW-TOs

For many years, I have been a DIY-er. I love to make things like skin care and home care products at home and have a number of recipes on my site for things like lotion, body butter, perfume, deodorant, disinfecting wipes, and more. In addition, we also have a great library of how-to articles that show you how to become more self-reliant in a world that is getting more and more chaotic.

RECOMMENDED RESOURCES

Here are some real food and natural living resources that I would recommend to anyone who is embarking on a journey to eat real food, wants to improve their health, or just wants to learn something new. I only recommend products that I, myself, have tried and believe in. If I don't believe in the product or like it myself, I will not promote it! This list is continually growing. If there is a brand or a website that you love, feel free to share and I'll check it out! I love getting personal recommendations!
