vegan almond butter cookies

it’s cookie season!!   well, cookie season never ends but for a majority of us it kicks into high gear throughout the holiday season.   and as fun as the holidays can be, it’s also a well known time of the year that can sabotage the best of your health and wellness goals. not to be all debbie downer but this is a conversation i often have during coaching sessions, and it’s become a fun place to strategize.   together... Read More

healthy homemade granola cereal

snack like a boss on a healthy homemade granola cereal.   a little here. a little there. and before you know it your jar is empty.   well, at least in my experience.   i’ve been eating it by the handful, with my parfaits, acai bowls, over soft serve, and with superfood frenzy or instant almond milk. if you can name it i’ve probably topped it off with granola and i’m not ashamed.   it’s a cinch to make... Read More

iced matcha latte

do you matcha much? pretty new to the green tea powder myself and it’s been a pleasure to experiment with.   literally. due to the increased levels of l-theanine found in matcha leaves. l-theanine is an amino acid that has been shown to increase the production of alpha waves to the brain.   these waves not only induce mental relaxation and reduce stress but they also stimulate an improvement of mood, concentration, and memory.   matcha... Read More

calming agua fresca

calming agua fresca is possibly the most refreshing and replenishing summertime drink you can get your hands on. consisting of high water content fruits like watermelon, cucumber and lime, it’s sure to up your hydration game.   in fact, reaching for watermelon or cucumber after finishing an intense workout has the potential to hydrate your body more effectively than a plain glass of water because they provide you with the natural sugars,... Read More

build your own acai bowl

its been noted a number of times that i lean towards simple things and making acai bowls is no different. building your own acai bowl is a fun and exciting way to change up your smoothie game. it’s a healthy, raw vegan, plant-based, nutrient dense form of fuel.   a few weeks ago a friend sent me the downside of smoothies from the new york times. i don’t disagree that smoothies can be overloaded with sugars. and just about anything... Read More

dairy-free vanilla protein smoothie

recently i had the opportunity to lead a small group on a winter adventure. although it was an online group program it reminded me of the wilderness trips i used to lead. it was a top notch group of participants and we had an exciting 7-days without coffee, alcohol or refined sugar. no coffee, sugar, or alcohol? no coffee, sugar, or alcohol and i consider it fun? don’t get me wrong. you know i enjoy my coffee but i also enjoy taking a break... Read More

date donut holes-the variety pack

alright, serious question…who in the world doesn’t like a treat every now and again? i obviously do as evidenced here, here, here and here. we weren’t desert wild at my house growing up but quite often a weekend morning would lend to a handpicked sweet roll plate from the local bakery. we fancied slicing them up for a sample plate and munching on them throughout the morning. these days fried doughy cake isn’t quite as exciting... Read More

not nutella

not nutella is a healthier version of the much loved nutella. it’s dairy-free, raw vegan, and one of my favorite healthy recipe hacks. it’s something i also enjoy packaging up in cute little jars with ribbons and sharing as gifts with family, friends, clients and students come holiday time. it’s a simple recipe (because, in my opinion, simple is always best) requiring 4 ingredients. a food processor, a pinch of patience and a dash... Read More

creamy cashew alfredo sauce with zoodles

recently i had the opportunity to make dinner for a few friends and decided a ‘pasta night’ would be fun. since it has still been fairly warm here dairy-free alfredo zoodles seemed perfect because there’s no need to use the stovetop and even my non-vegan buddies always enjoy this cashew alfredo sauce. so i grabbed a bunch of seasonally appropriate zucchini, pulled out my spiralizer and got to work. what you add to this dish... Read More
