Hidden Greens Chocolate-Cherry Protein Smoothie

Chocolate…Sweet Cherries…Protein…Greens…Antioxidants…Fiber… too much!  I almost didn’t know what to call this decadent creation without it having the longest title in recipe history!  It is basically a meal replacement since it contains vegetables, protein and antioxidants (all from plant-based sources).  And did I mention it contains over a cup of packed spinach that you can’t […]

Berry Chia Jam (no cook)

Homemade Jam! 4 ingredients, no cooking needed, loads of nutrient-rich chia seeds.  Bam!

Why buy your jam in the store when you can control the sweetness and ingredients at home?  You really can’t find a recipe more simple than this.  All it requires is a blender and a jar.  It literally takes 2 minutes to […]

Peach Salsa

We are deep into summer and I’m dreaming about sweet and juicy peaches – the ultimate summer fruit.  They really are nature’s candy.  Nothing against tomatoes at all, but lately peaches have stolen my taste buds… Salsas are easy to make and definitely kid-friendly.  I made this recipe with my 2 year old daughter, […]

Strawberry Guacamole

June is officially here!  Which means it is the start of strawberry season when you can enjoy this amazing fruit at the peak of flavor!

And since guacamole is always in season in our household I thought why not combine the two!?  This recipe is easy, take your typical guacamole recipe, subtract the tomatoes and […]

Spiralized Green Apple and Purple Cabbage Slaw with Nuts

Fruit, veggie and vegan protein all in one tasty dish!

I can’t believe grill season is already here!  This warmer weather could not have come soon enough after such a long and dreadful winter.  I’m so excited to experiment with fresh recipes for this grilling season.  First up is this super healthy slaw recipe which […]

I have officially jumped on the smoothie bowl bandwagon!  And I’m loving it!  It really is fun to decorate the smoothie bowl with your favorite boosters and healthy garnishes… It definitely makes for a heartier and more satisfying smoothie by adding a bit of crunch and some different textures to each spoonful.  We all eat […]

This is a raw and gluten-free spin on classic tabbouleh.   In addition to cauliflower, it is loaded with tomatoes and an assortment of green veggies including kale, green pepper and cucumber.  Its refreshing flavor comes from the fresh mint, fresh parsley, lemon juice, olive oil and salt/pepper.  This dish is great for picnics, lunches, […]

Vegan Chocolate Mousse

But how!?  The answer is…avocado!

Avocado??  Yes.  I was skeptical at the thought of avocado and chocolate together in one dish.  While I love both independently, I wasn’t sure how they would jive together.  I can honestly say (and my husband wholeheartedly agrees) this mousse is so silky, creamy and velvety… it is hard to believe there […]
