Macho “Na-cho” Tacos

One of the biggest fears when transitioning into a healthier lifestyle is having to say goodbye to foods we love, especially when one makes the commitment to go raw or vegan.

Seriously, its more popular than pizza in my house and Turkey Taco night was a weekly staple. So when I decided to take a step back from processed meats, flour and all of the toxins that come withRead more

That golden glow is coveted long after the summer months have gone and often maintained through the use of self-tanning products like lotions, sprays and hours laying in tanning beds. Despite the many health risks associated with these not-so-sunny tanning methods, the sunless tanning industryRead more

Vegan Key Lime Ice Cream

To me, one of the best treats around is ice cream, especially flavors that scream summer. One of those favorite flavors is Key Lime Pie. However, my tummy isn’t a fan of all that dairy and the refined sugars & saturated fat that come along with it too can be bad for your health. So I’ve found a way to get the rich and creamy taste I love by using the texture of something a little unexpected – AVOCADO! ToRead more

Give Love Not Gluten This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we all have our way of celebrating. From dining at a fancy restaurant, making enough candy-laden cards to fill a school bus or boycotting the ‘hallmark holiday’ all together, we are ALL subjected to a “Sea of Red” at every store. Its BEYOND obnoxious. Not to mention totally Gluten laden. But what to do if you or Valentine suffer from Celiac Disease, Lactose Intolerance or a very unfortunate (but very real) Chocolate Allergy?Read more

LET YOUR ARMS FLY – MINUS THE WINGS!

It’s happened to all of us. You raise your hand in the sweet summer tank top or dress to wave yourself a cab or as a ‘hi-ya’ to a friend and then QUICKLY slam it down due to the “the jiggles”. Your arm has a now betrayed you with a never-ending wave, long after you’ve stopped the act that put it in motion. But dont fret kiddies!
