6/29 Cool Beans & Reminder 1 day until Vegan Challenge

I love things that are convenient. I am not afraid to pay for convenience. In fact, I usually encourage it. Whatever it takes to get the whole foods that are best for you into your body is what I believe.  Even if I thought I could make  almond milk, I wouldn’t….why would you do that?? [...]

6/28 Oh My! Orzo Salad

Summer is my favorite time of year. Everything inside of me comes alive when the sun is warm and the days are long. I adore summer fruits like watermelon and nectarines and can’t get enough basil and cucumbers. The best thing ever is when it is so warm out that you only crave cold salads [...]

6/22 I Scream, for More

I whipped up another popsicle creation. This green-tastic one is Pistachio. They are creamy and refreshing. The roasted nuts add a nice crunch and a slightly salty taste. It has been so perfectly warm and muggy over the past few days. I absolutely love it like this. It is the ideal popsicle weather. Ingredients: 1 Box [...]

Happy Monday and Summer Solstice. I discovered something  this weekend that felt like an important find.  Once I tested the validity of my new tip, I knew I had to share it with you. I was at the grocery store on Saturday and in the produce section I saw a bag of crinkle cut carrots [...]
