Blueberry Coconut Superfood Smoothie

Posted by on Aug 31, 2014 in | No Comments

  I try and drink one green smoothie per day but my taste buds were bored with kale and spinach as the green components. I did some research and decided to order Vitamineral Green to super boost the nutrition of my smoothies without adding spinach or kale.  A large container is around $60 but the […]

Raw Summer Fruit Tart with Lemon Cream

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in | 10 Comments

I found some amazing peaches and blueberries last week at the Farmers Market.  They don’t need any cooking or extra sugar so I used them as a topping for this healthy raw tart. I love raw desserts because they taste amazing and so I don’t feel guilty about having a second slice.  And when you’ve […]

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in Featured, Recipes | No Comments

This is the first raw dessert I ever made and it is still one of my favorites.  The title alone contains four of the most delicious words in the english language (chocolate-raspberry-ganache-cake) so it’s off to a good start, don’t cha think? It’s incredible how walnuts, dates, raw cacao, avocado, and agave turn in to […]

I used to make almond milk way more difficult than it had to be by peeling the skin off of each almond before blending.  That was silly.  Ain’t nobody got time for that. Homemade almond milk is super easy to make at home.  Plan to soak the almonds a good 4 hours at room temperature […]

Lightened Up Morning Glory Muffins

These moist delicious Morning Glory Muffins chock full of pineapple, carrots, coconut, apples, and pecans are one of my favorites.    Many recipes use high amounts of sugar and oil, resulting in an overly sweetened and greasy muffin.  I have cut back the sugar, substituted half whole wheat flour for all-purpose, and used applesauce to […]

Warm Spinach Salad with Mushrooms and Pine Nuts

Posted by on Feb 23, 2014 in | One Comment

Often warm spinach salad recipes contain heavy amounts of bacon, hard boiled eggs, and cheese.  This Warm Spinach Salad with Mushrooms and Pine Nuts has no bacon or egg (the small amount of cheese is optional) and, I think, is even more delicious. The sauteed mushrooms and shallots wilt the spinach so it is not […]
