She’s also a chef, health coach, wife and mama.

Clean Mac and Cheese

by Arielle J on January 21, 2016

Healthination - Jan 4, 2016

On this episode of my show Clean Eating on Healthination,
I show you how to make an unbelievably delicious clean eating
version of Mac and Cheese – Clean Mac and Cheese!

Decadent and creamy, yet still light,
it’s your favorite comfort food gone healthy!

I use brown rice pasta,
which tastes just like regular pasta but is much healthier.
Brown rice pasta is full of fiber, so you can enjoy the taste and texture of
traditional pasta without feeling heavy and weighed down.

And instead of heavy butter and milk which typical mac and cheese calls for,
I use a much lighter alternative – almond milk.

When it comes to cheese (and you can tolerate dairy), I recommend the best quality you can find –
grass-fed organic cheddar cheese for a creamy, gooey texture.

When the cheese sauce is ready, pour it over the cooked brown rice pasta and stir to coat all the pasta with cheese.
You can serve it as is, or take it up a notch if you want a fancier casserole dish to serve at dinner.

This is a super easy meal your whole family will love!
There’s no need to make boxed macaroni and cheese when you can make a guilt-free clean eating version all by yourself!

Clean Eating Mac and Cheese
2 cups brown rice pasta (elbows), cooked
1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
½ tsp sea salt
1 cup almond flour
4 tsp coconut oil
1 cup organic grass-fed cheddar cheese
¼ cup frozen spinach
Black pepper to taste

Directions: watch how to make it here.

Apricot Chicken

by Arielle J on January 8, 2016

Apricot Chicken

Sweet and sour, so delicious and so easy.

Perfect dinner to pair with some quinoa or brown rice and greens.

Apricot Chicken
What You Need:
4 Organic Chicken Breasts (approx 2lbs) (1 per person)
1 Tbsp Coconut oil
Olive Oil
1/2 Lemon
2 cups apricot jam (unsweetened)
4 tsp honey, maple syrup or raw agave
1 cup Raw Cashews or 1/2 cup coconut

1. Rinse chicken under water and pat dry with a paper towel
2. Place chicken in a plastic baggie, shut closed and wrap with a towel or paper towel. Using a tenderizer or a hammer (or something heavy like a glass), place bag of chicken on floor and bang on the chicken until it flattens. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, watch this video.
3. Once the chicken has flattened, take out of plastic bag and place on a cutting board. Cut off any remaining white or fat.
4. Coat a pyrex dish or baking sheet with coconut oil so the chicken doesn’t stick
5. Drizzle a little olive oil onto each piece of chicken and lemon juice. Then, spread 2 Tbsp of apricot jam, coating each side of each piece of chicken.
6. Place in oven on broil or at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes. The top side should be white and cooked through. Flip and cook another 10-15 minutes. If it looks pink or glassy, cook a few more minutes and then cut through the chicken and check again.
7. Add 1Tbsp of apricot jam and 1 tsp of honey, maple syrup or raw agave on top. Sprinkle some cashews or coconut on top. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Plate them and add a slice of lemon on top as garnish.
Voila! Enjoy!

*Serves 4

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

by Arielle J on January 8, 2016

creamy butternut squash

If you’re looking for a quick, easy and delicious healthy soup,
you’ve found it!

I made this Creamy Butternut Squash during a private cooking class last week and the girls were obsessed.

The hardest part? Cutting the butternut squash and the onions. And,
that’s not even hard. Watch how to cut a butternut squash here (you can skip the peeling part) and watch how to cut an onion here.

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
What You Need:
1 butternut squash (3lbs), chopped into 1-inch cubes with skin (approx 6 cups)
1 onion (.5lbs), chopped (approx 2 cups)
1 Tbs coconut oil (aroma-free/refined)
1 cup almond milk
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
5 Tbs pure maple syrup
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup pumpkin seeds

1. Cut up the butternut squash and onions
2. Place coconut oil in a large soup pot and heat on medium heat. Add
onions and cook for approx 2 minutes until onions look glassy. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon
3. Add butternut squash and cook on medium heat (with lid on) for about 10-15 minutes until the butternut squash
is soft (place a fork in a piece to determine how soft it is – it should go in easily). Stir every 5 minutes to make sure the mixture is well coated and so the onions don’t burn to a crisp (its ok if the onions brown – it will taste delicious)
4. Once butternut squash is soft, add it to a blender
5. To the blender, also add almond milk, cinnamon, ginger, maple syrup and sea salt. Blend on high until creamy and hot.
6. Pour into bowls and add a few pumpkin seeds on top to make it pretty.
Voila! Enjoy!

*Makes approx 6 cups (good enough for 3 people)

be creamy. be delicious. be healthy.

Healthified Sweet Potato Kale Latkes

by Arielle J on December 11, 2015


Sweet Potato Kale Latkes

Tonight marks the third night of Chanukah. On this holiday, it’s a tradition to eat latkes (otherwise known as potato pancakes). The oil for cooking the latkes is symbolic of the oil that kept Israel lit with a long-lasting flame.

Typically, latkes are made with white sweet potatoes, eggs, white flour or matzo meal and then fried in vegetable oil.

To lighten things up (pun intended), I decided to make Healthified Sweet Potato Kale Latkes. Instead of white potatoes, we use fiber-rich sweet potatoes, swapped the white flour or matzo meal with protein-packed almond meal and sautee them in organic aroma-free coconut oil, instead of fry them in bad quality vegetable oil.

I also added a dose of greens to add some color (and nutrition). A paleo, gluten-free and wheat-free treat any day of the year, but particularly special on Chanukah!

Sweet Potato Kale Latkes
Healthified Sweet Potato Kale Latkes
What You’ll Need:

1 sweet potato, spiralized or grated (equal to approx 6 cups spiralized)
1 white onion, spiralized or grated (equal to approx 6 cups spiralized)
2 kale leaves, cut into thin slices (chiffonade)
3/4 cups almond flour (or “almond meal”)
2 eggs (pasture-raised), whisked
sea salt

1. Chop spiralized sweet potato (into 1-inch long pieces) and the spiralized onion (into 1/2-inch pieces) otherwise, the pieces will be super long. I used this spiralizer.
2. Place a paper towel over the sweet potatoes and over a sink, ring out the sweet potato, releasing any extra moisture.
Then, repeat with onion. Be careful of your eyes!
3. Place sweet potato and onion into a bowl, add eggs, almond flour, salt and pepper and mix well with hands.
4. In the meantime, heat up a pan with coconut oil on medium heat. When you drop in a piece of sweet potato and it starts to sizzle, you’ll know it’s ready.
4. Scoop out 2 Tbsp of the sweet potato mixture, roll in a ball with your hand and place on sizzling pan.
5. Pat down with a spatula to flatten and cook on each side for approx minutes on each side or until crispy.

Serve with some apple sauce, organic sour cream, plain yogurt, or my apple-ginger soup!
Sweet Potato Kale Latkes

Perfect to make for Chanukah or a pairs perfectly with (grass-fed) meatloaf, chicken or salmon.


Be festive. Be bright. Be kind.

Be Well,

Healthified Apple Cider Donuts

by Arielle J on December 8, 2015


healthified apple cider donuts by arielle haspel of

If you know me well, or follow me on instagram (@bewellwitharielle),
you’ll know that I’m obsessed with going to the farmers market.

The Union Square Farmers Market in NYC is literally downstairs from me,
so I happen to go (almost) every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday when it’s on.

My favorite thing to do is walk around and check out what’s in
season, but I also can’t help but
smell the delish apple cider donuts every time I pass by the apple purveyors!

In celebration of Winter approaching, I decided to make some
apple cider donuts, and of course, healthify them so you can eat them
for dessert (or breakfast) without the guilt!

Get excited, because these are gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo and made without refined sugar.

healthified apple cider donuts by arielle haspel of

Healthified Apple Cider Donuts
What You Need:
1 cup organic apple cider
1 3/4 cups Organic Gemini tiger nuts flour
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp cardamom
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp all-spice
1 egg (preferably pasture-raised), room temp
4 Tbsp coconut oil, liquified

Cinnamon – Sugar Topping:
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/4 cup coconut palm sugar

1. In a small saucepan, bring apple cider to a boil.
Continue cooking over high heat until it reduces half way
(approx 12 minutes). Cool completely. (Will reduce to about 1/2 cup)
2. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients –
tigernut flour, coconut palm sugar, baking powder, sea salt
and spices.
3. In a small bowl, whisk egg, melted coconut oil (use only 3 Tbsp – use the extra 1 Tbsp to grease the pan) and cooled cider.
4. Mix the egg mixture into the dry flour mixture until the dough is moist and sticky.
Refrigerate covered (with plastic wrap) for 1 hour or until firm enough to shape.
5. Grease the donut pan with a 1 Tbsp coconut oil. Scoop out about 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp dough and pat it down in the circle on the donut pan. Make sure the middle area of each donut is free of dough.
6. Bake at 350F degrees until cooked – approximately 20-30 minutes. (Ovens vary. Using a fork or toothpick, stick it in a donut and if the fork comes out with dough, cook a little longer until it comes out clean)
7. Cinnamon Sugar Topping: In a small bowl, mix 1 Tbsp cinnamon and 1/4 cup coconut sugar. Toss with warm donuts.
Break off a piece and enjoy!

Makes 6 mini donuts

healthified apple cider donuts by arielle haspel of

I used this mini donut pan. And I used Organic Gemini tiger nuts flour – full of fiber and perfect for baking.

Thanks to Taste of Home’s recipe for the inspiration. I ended up totally healthifying it! I swapped all purpose flour for tiger nuts flour, coconut palm sugar for brown sugar, coconut oil, for butter, and baked them in a donut pan, instead of frying them!

Hope you enjoy them!

Arielle - stress relief and mind body acadamy with Grace Smith TV and Jovanka Ciares

I’m busy woman with a lot on my plate (pardon the pun)… and a lot on my mind.
So, I’m always looking for new and unique ways to de-stress and feel more calm so I can ultimately more productive and happy at the same time.
When my beautiful friend, Grace Smith, asked if I would like to join her
Mind Body Academy,
I wrote back with the biggest “YES!”

When Grace and I officially met a few years ago at a health
and wellness conference, I instantly fell in love with her
light, zen, peaceful and happy energy. You’ll feel her energy the second you listen to her speak –
her voice is BEYOND calming and soothing.

Recently, I’ve been feeling more anxious than ever –
I spilled water on my computer the night that I got back from Thanksgiving vacation,
which just so happens to be two days before I was about to launch my new group coaching program.

I’ve been tapping into my favorite tools that usually help me feel more calm in the moment
and have been trying to be as positive as possible.
But no matter how many positive thoughts we think –
if the underlying subconscious beliefs driving those thoughts remains that same, so do we.

So I’m really ready to learn new tools to feel at peace from
Grace, one of the most qualified, experienced, and highly sought-after stress-relief experts.

grace smith - how to transform your life

Grace teaches others all over the world how to transform limiting thoughts into empowering beliefs. She also teaches us tips on how to thrive without sacrificing our healthy because so often we work so hard to be successful that we get sick in the process.

Her famous motto is: “just close your eyes and get free”. With her guidance, trust me – you will feel
more free, calm and less stressed instantly.

The first time I listened to one of her meditations (after literally just 15 seconds, I drifted off to sleep!!)
It was pretty amazing.

Grace, along with Jovanka (the founder of the “Wellness Smackdown”)
have developed a method like nothing else I’ve experienced, and they are teaching their breakthrough MindBody Method for free this week!
I am so excited for you to learn these special techniques.
As one of Grace’s personal fans and clients, I am a proud affiliate and will be personally joining all of you who sign up here today
to learn the MindBody Method: here.

What you’ll learn by signing up for this FREE MindBody Method training:
•How to improve your relationship with your body so you can finally get new healthy habits to stick
•How to excel in the workplace without sacrificing your health
•How to find that balance in your life without losing your drive, so you don’t need to be sick to be successful

If you want to learn the science behind getting new healthy habits to stick,
I HIGHLY recommend you sign up and learn this MindBody Method with me.
My favorite part in Video #1 starts at 10 (min):13 (seconds).

NEW Group Coaching with Arielle

by Arielle J on November 13, 2015

Arielle's coaching course

I’m psyched to share this this exciting news — I’m hosting a 4-week group coaching workshop in December!

In 2009, shortly after I was laid off from my job, I starting attending Gabrielle Bernstein’s coaching sessions… in her cozy NYC living room. Every week, we would sit around candles, drink tea and talk about what was blocking us from achieving our full potential and happiness. In those sessions, I was able to clear up the negative chatter in my mind and ultimately find self-love, fall in love.. and open up a business.

If you’re looking for a spark of inspiration and want to make a shift in your life, body and/or mind. I welcome you to join me for an amazing 4-week group coaching workshop.

Do you feel confused about what to eat and when to eat? Do you rely on coffee and crave sugar when you need a boost? Do you start a diet/food plan and then fall back into bad habits after a few days? Do you feel out of control after you eat, especially during the holidays? Do you feel like you have to cleanse to jumpstart your healthy lifestyle? Do you want to feel healthier but don’t know where to begin?

crispy gluten-free pizza by arielle haspel of

You’ll learn how to let go of unwanted habits and replace them with new healthy tricks.

The four-week coaching course includes:
* Must-have foods for your body-type
* Daily morning and evening rituals
* Cooking skills
* Grocery store tips
* Tips to satisfy cravings
* Body appreciation exercises

I absolutely love health coaching and I’m really excited to
be able to do it in an intimate, cozy group setting.

Get ready for some holy deliciousness. My friend, Courtney, is obsessed with Speculoos spreads and cookies. The one she loves is made of wheat, lots of sugar and corn syrup – not #bewellwitharielleapproved.

This smoothie is made without refined sugar, and theres no gluten or wheat.

Instead, it’s packed with good-for-you nut butters, healthy sweet dates, a drop of organic vanilla, creamy almond milk, and a dash of special spices to make it taste just like your favorite holiday treat.

I have a feeling that you’re going to love this one!

Apple-Cinnamon Tea

Apple- Cinnamon Tea

No need for tea bags or sugar with this recipe. The cinnamon pairs perfect with the apple and the apple lends some of it’s natural sweetness to the tea. Warm and comforting on a chilly Fall day.

1/2 apple, sliced
4 cinnamon sticks
2 cups water


  1. Place all ingredients in a small saucepan with water. Boil for 5 min. Turn off heat and let cool in pan for approx 3 minutes until cooled and steeped, then pour into a mug with ingredients and sip!

P.S. The longer you let the apple steep in the water, the sweeter the tea becomes, so I recommend leaving the apples and cinnamon in the mug.

Makes 1 serving (approx 1 cup after water evaporates)

soul camp west

Back in the day, I went to Summer camp
and it still is one my favorite life experiences to date —
the activities, the memories, the friends, the fresh air can’t be
beat. And can you believe we had all of that fun even without yoga?!

Well, the fun gets even better, because
adult sleepaway camp for the soul is here… and there’s definitely yoga involved – Soul Camp in California!
Bonfires, color war, talent shows, late-night dance parties and concerts by the lake.

Spend the weekend doing yoga and IntenSati, get your
chakras cleared, and end the night in a kayak on the lake under the stars. Sounds incredible, right?

1/2 apple (approx 2.5 oz)
5 Tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp raw, local honey

Blend in blender until smooth.

Apple-Honey Vinaigrette

Romaine with Gouda, Caramelized Walnuts and Apples

2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbs coconut oil
1 apple, chopped
10 leaves, romaine, chopped (approx 2.5 cups)
1/2 cup gouda cheese, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts


1. In a small saucepan, head on medium-heat coconut oil, maple syrup, walnuts and apples. Stand by stove and stir for approx 5 minutes until apples are soft and walnuts are caramelized.
2. In the meantime, chop up the lettuce and gouda cheese.

and enjoy!
