Healthy Chickpea Cookie Dough Blondies (vegan, gluten free)

Confession: there is no cookie dough that has ever passed by me and gotten to the oven fully intact. So I’m so excited about this recipe, which uses chickpeas as the base for chocolate chip blondies.

Cold & Flu: 10 Easy & Effective Home Remedies

  This winter has been particularly cold and rough. As people around me were dropping like flies with cold and flu, I self righteously kept reassuring myself that I had nothing to worry about. I never get sick anymore! Until I woke up one morning with that feeling…sore throat, achy ears, stiffness all over. Uh

Beet Hummus

This beet hummus is not only beautiful but also a delicious alternative to traditional hummus, especially for those who find digesting chickpeas problematic. I love it for using up my beet juice pulp, but whole beets can be used as well. This is a year-round recipe; the bright hue is perfect for holiday parties, and

Raw Chai Tea Oatmeal

  This is an exciting discovery / creation. I love the taste of chai lattes but avoid them with the usual added sugars and dairy. This oatmeal is gluten-free, raw, and vegan, yet creamy, delicious, and satisfying. Perfect as the days get colder… 

Pumpkin Spice Sweet Potato Pulp Muffins (vegan, gluten free, oil free)
