MUSIC FESTIVAL ENERGY ORBS

So this weekend I am off to party with 80,000 other music fans. No big deal. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that I never go anywhere unprepared, and my healthy tummy, no matter where I am, always comes first. Although I’ve heard that there will be fruit stands and …

MANGO CASHEW SUNSHINE BITES

I made it. My bean dip and everything else has officially passed through security on all three legs of my journey to Kauai. I am writing this 30,000 feet above the blue ocean, about two hours (out of the thirty eight!) from our final destination. I have never been so excited to get off a plane in. …

SWEET PEA & PEARL ONION PESTO SMOTHERED ZUCCHINI NOODLES

I have such a special treat for you today. Since I am in the final stretch of writing my manuscript (!!!), I’ve asked Julie from the Alkaline Sisters to take over this week. She’s created a gorgeous spring recipe for all of you who really need a bite of brightness (I figure that is anyone who has survived the …

SUPERFOOD HAUTE CHOCOLATE

Is it just me, or do the holidays sometimes feel more stressful than joyful? Tons of running around, last-minute gift making, endless social events, and no time for much else! I catch myself skipping meals and losing sleep just to keep up. Not very relaxing. This year I am making a concerted effort to book time for treating myself, …

THE GREAT JUICE FEAST

I am taking a bit of a break this week…a break from food! I am juice feasting. “Is that like juice fasting?”, you ask. Well, yes, they are essentially the same thing – a liquid diet of fresh pressed fruit and vegetable juices, except that with a juice feast, the idea is to consume a little …

INTRODUCING SUMMER LIGHTS + THE MOJITO SMOOTHIE

Summer is here! I’ve officially crossed the pond from freezing cold northern Europe to tropical southern Canada! I am pretty happy to feel the sun shining and the heat in full force. Finally. As I was looking at my calendar the other day, I realized that my summer holiday doesn’t really include much “holiday”. So in …

I LIKE IT RAW

Yes, that’s right. I like it raw, alive…uncooked. I’m talking about my food, and more specifically, that little date square. Since it’s a raw food, all the nutrients contained in the dates, oats, maple syrup, and orange, that would have otherwise been lost thought he cooking process, still remain. In fact, this dessert is so …

ORGANIC GARDEN IN YOUR KITCHEN

Since we’re now in the dead of winter and we’re not exactly getting much in the way of local produce anymore, I thought it would be a great time to introduce ya’ll to the wonderful world of sprouts! I’m sure that most of you have eaten sprouts before and seen them in those little plastic …

STRAWBERRY SUNRISE

What better way to start your day than with a glass full of fresh, strawberry beauty? This is what I woke up to this morning and it was so delicious. With strawberries now in season, the time has come to worship their mouth-watering deliciousness with a drink fit to raise to the rising sun! Strawberries compliment just …

GREEN DREAM CHLORELLA CREAM

Okay, Sarah B. has got another superfood obsession on her hands and she needs you to get on the bandwagon so she doesn’t seem so insane (perhaps not talking in third person would also remedy this). What is it this time? It’s chlorella. Yup, I’m mowing down on the pond scum. Have I sunk to a new …
