Design Your Life

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow

Happy 6 Month Anniversary SE Asia!!

Exactly 6 months ago I hopped on a plane to Bali with no return ticket to the US (much to the airline’s chagrin…that’s another story). I remember, like yesterday, the feeling of dread and fear in the pit of my stomach before I left–or, rather, leapt. It’s a feeling I’ve had before and continue to

If I was stranded on an island, I would bring vegan chocolate truffles

Carly Dintaman found her way to us on the beautiful island of Gili Air and her timing was impeccable as we had just opened a café and needed professional advice. Not only did she give us advice, but she spent 2 weeks with us educating and training us on gluten free snack recipes. She may

Eating up Bali

Bali food has definitely been one of my favorite parts of this journey…where do I even start? Well, as I sit down to write this, I’ve just finished drinking the fresh juice out of a coconut and am getting ready to scoop out the tender meat for a little post-yoga snack. Okay, it’s not so

Pumpkin Smoothie

This smoothie is a delicious, rich, healthy fall-in-a-glass/mug situation.

Easy Peasy Mint Pea Soup (vegan)

Summer is officially here! I’m craving cooler foods now, and this mint pea soup is one of my go-to’s, as it’s super simple, delicious and packed with good-for-you things, including lots of PROTEIN! This is my answer for those who say you don’t have time to make healthy food, as it probably takes ten minutes

The BEST Chocolate Fudge Brownies (raw, vegan, gluten free)

This is one of my go-to dessert recipes—simple, chocolatey, and satisfying to even non-vegans / raw foodies. It’s a great raw dessert to share, as it’s one that holds its shape well, even when set out at room temperature for several hours.

Raw, Vegan Cake Batter Truffles

The best part about making a cake is licking the batter out of the bowl. These truffles taste just like that – minus any dairy, refined sugar, gluten, or guilt. The only challenge is to not eat them all at once.

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

Caffeine-Free, Vegan Coffee Alternative

After months of tea as my only caffeinated beverage, one summer morning I found myself salivating at the sight of a tall, creamy iced coffee a coworker was sipping. I don’t believe in depriving oneself in the name of health, and I figured there could be a creative alternative that would be both healthy and

Quick & Raw Date Syrup

Date syrup is my favorite natural sweetener, and it’s incredibly easy to make. Dates are low on the glycemic index, meaning they won’t spike your blood sugar and leave you craving more sugar, not to mention they include fiber, vitamins, and minerals. I use this to substitute maple syrup, honey, agave, etc. in a lot

Easy Gluten-Free Vegan Cornbread

Cold weather calls for chili, and chili calls for cornbread. I’ve been craving warm cornbread like Mom used to make, but most of the pre-made stuff is loaded with sugar, salt, dairy. After several batches, I came up with a recipe that’s absolutely delicious, gluten free, vegan, super moist, and satisfying. Warm with honey for

Healthy Holiday Gingerbread Smoothie (vegan)

This is the perfect holiday drink. Spicy, sweet, and creamy, this has helped ease my sugar cravings. AND it’s packed with iron and protein, so I’ve been loving it post-workouts. It would also be a party-hit (shall we add some bourbon to this too?) or lovely fireside.

Hot Second Vegan Hot Chocolate

One of my favorite drinks for winter is hot chocolate. One of my favorite drinks in general is chocolate milk. This recipe can be either (heat it up or don’t), and it’s literally two, simple, healthy ingredients with a multitude of possible variations (make it spicy, minty, mocha!)

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 Tamari Carrot Pulp Crackers

These are my go-to raw cracker! They use up a bunch of my carrot pulp from juicing and can be dehydrated/baked more or less to make a softer bread or  cracker texture. Sometimes I just miss that tactical feeling of a sandwich! I think this is an easy recipe, but if you’re lazy or don’t feel

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

  I’m always looking for new ways to use up my juice pulp. Lately, I’ve got a lot of sweet potato pulp from my favorite cold weather juice, just waiting in the freezer  to be used. And, boy, am I glad I’ve been saving those “scraps”! These muffins are incredibly moist, fluffy, and perfect for

Sweet Potato Pumpkin Spice Juice (and Pudding)

  I used to count down the days until Starbucks would release its seasonal pumpkin spice latte. I can no longer stomach the sweetness of that beverage, though, and have created something that, in my opinion, perfectly encapsulates Fall in a glass (or teacup, as I prefer to drink it). 

Raw Cashew Milk Recipe

  Cashew milk is one of the most simple and most satisfying nut milks to make! Since cashews become very soft after soaking, there’s no need to strain through a nut milk bag. This recipe is so rich and creamy, it feels like an indulgent treat. Perfect cold on a warm day or warmed up
