Cranberry Orange Smoothie Bowl

I first made my Vitamin C Booster Cranberry Orange Smoothie 3 years ago, and I been making it nonstop ever since. But sometimes I'm more in the mood to eat something while at the same time craving fresh flavors. Whenever that mood strikes, I always opt for a smoothie bowl. So I've altered one of my favorite smoothies of all ...

Tropical Spinach Salad with Creamy Coconut Lime Dressing

I'm really quite predictable with my seasonal cravings. With every fall that arrives I'm overly enthusiastic about all things apple and of course sweet potatoes. But as the months wear on into winter I start longing for the summer produce again. I know there's things in season for a lot of people, but from where I'm sitting, the world outside ...

Asian Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

I had the best lunch last week at a local Thai place that serves incredibly flavorful food. It was one of those meals that you just keep thinking about, and I knew I was going to need to recreate what I had to share with you too. So the thinking about lunch turned into an obsession, and I cancelled the ...

Molasses Ginger Cookie Energy Bites

My favorite cookie of all time is my Grandpa's Molasses Ginger Cookies which I made into a gluten free version last year. They're highly addictive, and so good that I don't make them too often because I lack a little thing called 'willpower'! So I thought it might be fun to take the same flavors of this classic cookie, and ...

Pineapple Orange Banana Green Smoothie

It's been a little while since I've come up with a green smoothie recipe. So long in fact that I went back into the archives to see, and it turns out that the last time I posted a green smoothie was in February of this year! Of course there's always a reason behind everything, and in this case there's several. ...

Avocado Zucchini Hummus

Did you know you can make hummus out of zucchini instead of beans? I know I would've never thought of this awesome idea in a million years, but open any raw foods cookbook, and you will find all sorts of good ideas like this. Usually raw foods also tend to be very low in fat, so you'll find my recipe ...

Glowing Berry Beet Smoothie

I hope the word 'beet' sorta hiding out there in the title hasn't scared you off! I'm a recovering beet hater myself, and it's only been recently that I've even entertained the idea of trying some new things with beets. For some reason I've never cared for their earthy flavor, which I've always described as 'tastes like dirt'. But then I ...

Cantaloupe Nice Cream Bowls

I was daydreaming about these Cantaloupe Bowls last week while walking on the beaches of Tofino, Vancouver Island. The sun was shining and there was sand beneath my toes for the first time in 4 years. The heat of the sun on my face had me wanting something frosty and refreshing, but since we were miles and miles from anywhere, ...

Watermelon Thirst Quencher

I feel like I've been holding back on you with this recipe, (not intentionally by any means). But I've been making this for over a year, but somehow I didn't get a recipe written until now! It started last summer when I heard about people making their own gatorade type drinks. And I thought why not use blended up watermelon, ...
