7/30 Last Day of the Juice Fast

7/23 Vegan Vichyssoise

Happy Meatless Monday. I love soup, even in the summer. It is a meal that transcends seasons because it is comforting, fillng and can be easy to create.

7/13 Getting Prepared

I have three more days to  prepare my body and mind for the fifteen day fruit/veg/juice fast that begins on Monday. I am more afraid than I thought I would be. It is funny how enthusiasm can so easily make way for fear  the closer the  starting line approaches.  I am all of a sudden [...]

7/9 DIY Black Pepper Lime Popcorn

Happy Meatless Monday. I have an all natural, inexpensive and incrediblly easy snack to share. My favorite kind. I do food demos at an in-store kitchen where I work.
