Shake It Bay-Bee Shake It!

As part of our new way of eating for the new year, we’ll be doing our best to up the leafy greens in our daily diet and cut the meat at least one day a week. Given we’re HUGE fried chicken lovers (with a honkin’ side of steak, of course) combined with our busy schedules, this new found culinary plan has potential of being quite a challenge. But when it comes to our health we refuse to give up, so we considerRead more

Rockin Raw-Violis

When we think of raviolis, our mind often goes to round gluten-laden pillow puffs filled dairy-based fillings first. They are delicious, of course, but for those with allergies or those simply taking charge of their health and wishing to stick to a living, plant based lifestyle, traditional ravioli dishes are no longer an option. Until now! Meet my Rockin’ Raw-violi – the all natural vitamin filled, super tasty, LIVING dish that does what no traditional pasta can! It’s high inRead more

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. We all have our “comfort foods”; those favorite go-to’s that we could eat all day, everyday. For my family, it’s tacos and burritos. 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

Choco-Raspberry Mousse Tarts

When it comes to holiday desserts, who doesn’t love a little Chocolate? Something about it’s rich savory-sweet goodness makes it a perfect treat no matter what the occasion. But when dairy isn’t an option, those milk chocolately goodies can be more of a pain (literally) than a pleasure. Until now…Meet Cacao! Cacao beans are where cocoa comes from; which are then heated and filled with added sugars and milk fats to then create chocolate. It is truly the purest formRead more

Savory Mac & Cheese Cupcakes, Please!

OOOOH WEEEE, MAC & CHEE!!! There’s nothing we love more than taking the foodie treats of our youth and revamping them into something a bit more ‘grown up’. Case in point – Macaroni & Cheese. (Or as we lovingly refer to it in our house – Good Ol’ Mac & Che) When we were below 4 feet in height, all it took was the promise of “The Cheeseiest” courtesy of Kraft on our plate and we were on our best behavior the whole dayRead more

Easy No-Bake Vegan Pumpkin Pie

It’s safe to say that when it comes to Fall, Pumpkin is the superstar of the season. From adorning our doorsteps to filling our lattes, muffins and more, we just can’t get enough of this bright orange gourd. Maybe that’s why every holiday doesn’t feel complete without atleast one pumpkin pie on the table. But for those of us who can’t handle the high saturated fats of a gluten-filled crust, heavy cream or tons of processed sugar, we can beRead more

Give Flakey Lips a Mint Chocolate Kiss

When the weather outside gets brutal, one of the first victims of the bitter cold is your lips. That pretty little pucker gets dry, chapped and flaky faster than you can say Pillsbury and lip balm just doesn’t quite cut it. Fixing this common problem is as simple as a lip scrub….which you can find anywhere. But lets be honest, if it’s going on your lips its going in your mouth so you want to keep it as natural (andRead 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

On-The-Go Peppermint Cocoa Kits

When the weather get’s chilly, all it takes is a mug of chocolatey cocoa goodness for us to get warm. Add a touch of peppermint and ‘monster mallows’ to the mix and we’re in heaven. Since most of our friends & family feel the same, we decided to come up with a super easy kit to give on the go with ease. The best part is it’s cute, cheap and 100% delicious! Regardless of your gift giving packaging, you’ll need aRead more

SPICE UP YOUR LIFE!

All of the anti-aging, super-power healthy benefits we’re always on the hunt for may be as close as our kitchen cabinet. Rather than pop another pill to make ourselves better from the inside out, taking a closer look at the spice contents of our our kitchen may be all the tasty basdirection we need!  For example…   RED PEPPER / CAYENNE — The active ingredient capsaicin is used topically to relieve pain of peripheral neuropathy. It also stimulates bile acid and mayRead more
