RAW and VEGAN Raspberry ‘Cheesecake’

I have to admit I don’t like cheesecake. At all. Ever. Which is fine because it doesn’t really like me either. At least not my gut. There’s definitely no love lost in their relationship but I do have to say I LOVE this cheesecake. Which is awesome because it actually loves me too. It told me so in the way it didn’t have me writhing in pain or running to the loo or clearing out a room in 10 seconds flat. So I repeat, I LOVE thisRead more

Is This USDA Organic Or Just Portlandia Organic?

Its seems like everyone and their mama is on the ‘O’ train. From food to clothing, advertising and even just simple table conversation, it’s all about the ‘O’ and ‘O’ being Organic. While we love this public embrace of a personal cause, truth be told there’s a few folks slapping an ‘O’ on products that are far from it. But other than visiting the local farm to see for yourself just how organic it really is, do we really have anyRead more
