Bars for Days!
At home having ready-to-go healthy snacks is essential. I never know if I need to grab something for a movie, a hike, in between meals, running errands or even road trips!Read More
There are days when cashew cream slathered on bread sounds mighty delicious and then there are days (more often than not) where something fresh and green makes my body swoon.
In this recipe, I’m bringing together a refreshing, nutritious, DEFREAKNLIOUS green salad and a gluten-free, NON-GMO, low calorie, Sunfood Coconut Wrap that'll leave you swooning for days.
Aside from the surprising amount of flavor this wrap packs, it’s perfectly filling–leaving you pleasantly satisfied versus couch ridden.
Two Moms in the Raw are at it again, but this time they have altered their ingredients…FOR THE BETTER! Taking a page from the progressive book, they have taken out agave and replaced it with coconut nectar.
Coconut nectar is still processed, but it is far less processed than agave. Agave may rank low on the glycemic index making it a suitable option for diabetics, but it ranks very high in fructose content. So high in fact that it is on par with high fructose corn syrup, which is a really big no no.
I’ve thought about trying a meal delivery service plenty of times—I’ve always been curious, but I’ve never taken the time to seek out which delivery service would fit my dietary needs and wants.
My thoughts on the subject have always been that it seems like a great way for one to stay on track, to facility productivity and to introduce variety into ones diet. At the moment all the reasons above pertained to my current situation, which made the timing perfect to sample Veestro-a plant-based, non-gmo meal delivery service.
These tasty bites are a perfect snack, pick me up, pre or post-workout booster and a sweet tooth craver nixer. Fancy terminology right there.
Lately, I’ve been adding more and more superfoods to my pantry instead of just running out and grabbing quick snacks all over town. I’m doing this for cost efficiency and for quality control.Read More
Do you know Klean-Slate? I mean, do you reallly know Klean-Slate? Cause if you do, you may know my slight obsession with kale chips. Lately, my horizons have been expanding into brussels, cabbage, broccoli and pretty much anything else you can dehydrate and make into a chip. But, my heart will always lie with the pioneering kale.Read More
If you are looking for a great caffeine substitute that still packs an energy punch, try adding some maca. Maca comes in a powder form and has a malty flavor. I use it in smoothies, desserts and hot drinks like the one above.Read More
I may have grown up in a house where my dad was a chef (definitely not a vegan one) and I do feel very naive for saying this, but I didn’t realize how much fun and engaging a cooking class could be! It’s only taken me…oh…almost 30 years!Read More
All veggie burgers are not created equal! There are some fantastic brands out there (like Hilary’s Eat Well) that take the time to research and create higher-quality frozen veggie patties then some of the most popular brands out there, like MorningStar and Boca. I remember years ago when I first tested the veggie patty waters and I became a big MorningStar fan. It’s almost a right of vegetarian/vegan passage.Read More
I work a regular 9-5 job and normally workout afterwards, so my extra time gets sucked up pretty fast during the week. One of my goals this year is to break out from my routine and spend some more weekday time in the kitchen.Read More
