Raw Vegan "Skillet" Brownies

Raw Vegan “Skillet” Brownies

I started non-baking raw vegan brownies two years ago when I began to fall in love with raw desserts and the possibilities it presented. I had always been intimidated by the concept of raw foods but the draw had been there for years. I distinctly remember sitting on my bed eight years ago scouring the...
Healthy "Otter Pops"

Healthy “Otter Pops”

 You know that I am a sucker for a good copy cat recipe. Heck, I gots an entire section dedicated to childhood favorites that have all the gluten, eggs, and dairy taken out of them. Dare I say that it gives me the biggest kick when I create these recipes most of all.  I about...
Why I Went on a Cleanse

Why I Went on a Cleanse

My health had drastically changed over the past year and I was beginning to worry about what was happening and not happening to my body. I’ve made some remarks here and there if you have been following my site for a while but I haven’t been as forthright with the whole picture. I started noticing that my lower belly was...
Baked Vegan Zucchini Fries

Baked Vegan Zucchini Fries

Maybe this shocks me more than it does you but the mere fact that I created something baked and not fried is pretty much proof that I have made some changes in my life. Of course you can always fry these Baked Vegan Zucchini Fries but that I leave completely up to you. No judgment...
Homemade Vegan BBQ Sandwiches

Homemade Vegan BBQ Sandwiches

I have been dying to create this recipe for a while now since it popped into my head months ago and planned for it onto my calendar. I was so super excited (like, spirit fingers excited) when it all came together perfectly…I love me a good gluten-free vegan recreation of a favorite! Now that I am really trying...
4th of July Watermelon "Cake"

4th of July Watermelon “Cake”

I’m still feeling a bit wary these days about baking. I did have a moment in the kitchen where I attempted at a fruit cobbler with a completely new whole grain gluten-free flour mix but I couldn’t even bring myself to eating it. Not that it was terrible tasting, in fact it was pretty good,...
Easy Pickled Veggies

Easy Pickled Veggies

  Easy Pickled Veggies The ever-so scary thing about change is never knowing where it will lead you. I have a particularly different time with change (probably just like everyone else) because not only for the first sentence but also because it takes me awhile to adjust to (probably also just like everyone else). That limbo part can...
Vegan Spicy "Tuna" Sushi

Vegan Spicy “Tuna” Sushi

Sometimes, instead of trying to keep pushing ourselves to work, work, work, we* need to learn how to relax and be okay with taking time off away from the work. The work will always be there but we* won’t if we* push ourselves too hard.  *Read: I This week has been one of those weeks for me....
Fresh Veggie Collard Wraps

Fresh Veggie Collard Wraps

  It’s been a while since I visited the beach. Now that I live more inland I really miss walking along the shoreline and breathing in the ocean air. I grew near the beach so I think it will always be in my blood. I, of course, was too young to appreciate what living next to the Pacific Ocean...
Peach Basil Chia Seed Jam

Peach Basil Chia Seed Jam

My energy levels have been less than ideal this week but considering that I am in detox mode, it’s definitely expected. I’ve been ultra tired lately, like passing out at 8pm tired. I’m also having lapses in my thinking from putting coffee grinds (for Matt’s coffee; caffeine is off-limits for me right now) into the blender...
Homemade BBQ and Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips

Homemade BBQ and Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips

I love the thought of a snack-y picnic–not eating a full meal out but rather packing up your basket full of small bites in order to settle under a tree while you eat a small bag full of homemade BBQ and Sour Cream & Onion Potato Chips (vegan, of course). Fear not, I made these chips  prior...
The Conscious Cleanse

The Conscious Cleanse

If food is our medicine then I am certain that I have been poisoning myself. I am the first to be honest and admit that I haven’t been watching my food allergies as I should. Sometimes when you get to a place of health you begin to think that you are fine now and it’s okay to slip in...
