  • Matcha Green Tea Latte

Healthy Matcha Frappuccino

Did you know a Matcha Frappucinno at Starbucks is over 400 calories and 65 grams of sugar!?  While matcha itself is super healthy, these blended sugary and high calorie beverages are not so much.  Here, I lighten-up and veganify (is that a word?) the popular matcha drink. I have been trying to like matcha for so [...]

  • Green-aid

Green Aid

Talk about a reset drink: Green-Aid to the rescue!  When I need to start fresh, I go for this five-ingredient, easy to make drink.  It reboots my systems and literally makes me feel like I'm glowing from the inside out.  It more than quenches my thirst and provides loads of beneficial nutrients.  I find cucumbers and parsley help [...]

  • Salty Fig Hummus EatingbyElaine

Every Oscar party needs a red carpet-worthy hors d'oeuvre.  This elegant dip is sure to dazzle your guests and steal the spotlight.  It is a lightly sweetened version of hummus that is surprisingly delicious.  With just three main ingredients (chickpeas, olive oil and figs) and a pinch of salt, you can whip this up in less [...]

  • Healthy Chocolate Pudding

Vegan Chocolate Pudding

This pudding is the easiest dessert out there so you can quickly whip it up without any stress.  No oven, no stove and no fancy kitchen tools. I'm going to be completely upfront and let you know that the base of this dish is avocado.  Now you might be skeptical about the idea of avocado and chocolate together [...]

  • Healthy Orange Julius

Healthy Orange Julius

This drink is like a liquid creamsicle (think: vanilla and orange flavor combo).  I feel like a sophisticated kid drinking this frothy, cool, creamy, orange-y sweet treat :) It is not thick or quite as filling as a milkshake or smoothie.  Instead, it is lightly frozen, slightly creamy and very frothy.  A classic orange julius is made [...]

  • Vegan Blueberry Muffins 2

Vegan and Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins

I have never been able to find a blueberry muffin recipe that is healthy AND vegan AND gluten-free AND nut-free.  This may be the only one out there.  And it actually tastes good too.  It is simple to make and uses sorghum flour which is my new favorite baking flour. You are probably wondering, what [...]

  • Which Chocolate is Best

Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes with Avocado Chocolate Frosting

Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, soy-free, nut-free, refined-sugar free, oil-free, healthy and delicious?  Seems impossible, right?  Wrong! And what's more?  An entire can of white beans is hidden in this recipe.  And would you completely faint if I told you the frosting is made from avocado?  (gasp) It all seems so wrong for a cupcake.  I know. [...]

Purple Haze Smoothie

This vibrant and nutritious smoothie is bursting with chocolate flavor.  So much that it is hard to believe there is a vegetable in it (and 2 cups of blueberries).  It is date-sweetened and completely refined-sugar free.  Plus it contains flavanoid-rich cacao nibs and cacao powder. It is raw, vegan, nut-free, dairy-free, soy-free and gluten-free. Purple [...]

  • Red Wine Pasta

Red-Wine Spaghetti with Mushrooms and Parsley-Pesto

Pasta drowning in red wine.  What is more Valentine's Day than that? I never thought to cook pasta in wine until I saw a recipe in Food & Wine magazine that featured this cooking technique.  It gives the pasta such a unique flavor and pairs well with garlic and parsley.  It is a great alternative [...]
