The Magic of PMS

Isn’t PMS wonderful? If you didn’t answer right away with an exuberant “YES!” then read on to learn how you can love PMS … well, one form of PMS, anyway! A few weeks ago, y’all left great suggestions for healthy dessert makeovers. One of your suggestions was so interesting I had to try it out right […]

Ginger Peach Curry

Two years ago, when I timorously announced to the blogworld that I enjoy eating something I dubbed “savory oatmeal,” I never expected the idea to become very popular. I figured people would think I was nuts! But here we are, in 2010, and it suddenly seems everyone’s tried savory oatmeal! Along with it, I’m also […]

Peanut Butter Banana Soft Serve

So remember when I said all I wanted to do in this hot weather was sit around eating salads and ice cream? Forget the part about the salad. And double up on the ice cream to make up for it. In this particular peanut butter and banana soft serve, the banana gives the recipe its […]

Healthy Chocolate Sauce

Healthy Chocolate Sauce!                   About a year ago, I fell in love with Artisana Cacao Bliss. However, my wallet was not so smitten: $11 for an 8-oz jar? In the interest of saving money, I vowed to attempt making my own Cacao Bliss… it turned out even […]

“Fudge You!” High-Protein Chocolate Cake

Above and below, covered in Vegan Whipped Cream. Possible problems with making a whole pan of brownies: After only a few days, they get hard and crumbly (especially the end pieces). If you live alone, it’s hard to finish a whole pan by yourself before they go stale. If you’re my mom, you disagree with […]

Magic Mushrooms

Story time! One day back in high school, my art teacher (we’ll call her Mrs. Smith) decided to show off a mushroom-shaped piece of pottery constructed by a student. “Look, class,” she said.  “Isn’t this gorgeous?” Her question was met with snickers. Confused, she asked, “You don’t think it’s beautiful?  Just look at the skill; look […]

Healthy Breakfast Pizza

It’s a pizzert! Pizzert/ noun. Dessert pizza. A pizza topped with anything sweet. Bonus points for chocolate. Above, with Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting. Breakfast Pizza Pizzert Serves 2 …unless you want to eat the whole pizza so you can say “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing” like in the commercial! 1/2 cup white […]

Raw Cheesecake

Not just any raw cheesecake, either. Raw Banana Split Cheesecake with a hot chocolate crust! Don’t let the long name fool you; this “cheesecake” could not be easier–or quicker–to make! Raw Banana Split Cheesecake (If you want a traditional-sized cake, double the recipe) 1 cup raw cashews (120g) 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 1/2 a medium […]

Raw Carrot Cake Macaroons… and Carrot Cake Pizza!

Lately, I’ve been on a huge-normous carrot cake kick. You’ve heard of the Midas Touch? It’s become the Bugs Bunny Touch!  One of my most-recent Carrot Cake experiments took place yesterday, with these guys: Carrot Cake Macaroons (Or shape into bars, for Carrot Cake Larabars!) peeled carrot dash of cinnamon ingredients for the original raw […]

The Definition of Carbo Loading

Carbo Loading: (verb) To consume large amounts of carbohydrates through food intake. Above: spiralized zucchini noodles with my homemade Alfredo sauce, veggies similar to the ones from Thanksgiving, and two toasted whole-wheat English Muffins with jam. Two muffins are better than one ;). . Speaking of carbs… I’m finally getting around to posting the recipe […]

Oatmeal Cookies for Breakfast

Is it a cookie?  Is it a pancake? Who cares! Oatmeal Cookie Crepe Cakes (Makes 8 cookie-sized cakes) 20g white whole wheat flour (about 1/6 cup) 20g oats (about 1/6 cup) 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and 3 drops almond extract sugar or stevia (if desired) a bit over 1/16 tsp salt ¼ tsp ener-g egg […]

Make your own Liquid Crack

(Oh boy will I probably regret this title when I see the resulting Google searches it may get.). A few years ago, I ventured into a little, unknown cafe in NYC called Bonobos. Although the cafe was quaint, it was also very quiet.  My mom and I were the only ones in the joint for […]

So easy a Muggle can do it

(For those who haven’t read Harry Potter, a “muggle” is a person who lacks magical ability.) Red Pepper Magic Soup (Makes 1 generous serving) 200 grams raw, sliced mushrooms 200 grams red pepper slices Oil, water, or broth for sautéing Milk of choice (I like almond milk) Garlic (I use 1 and 1/2 tablespoons) Salt […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Babies

Nursery Shenanigans One fateful night, I laid my Cashew Cookie Truffles in their playpen next to the dark chocolate bars.  But something happened while I slept… come morning, the bouncing babies were gone! I didn’t have to look far to find them, though: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Babies As children, how many of you ate […]

Homemade Cashew Cookie Larabars

Cashew Cookie Larabars It all started with the Hot Chocolate Fudge Babies. I love them. You love them. Everyone loves them. And so the time is ripe to introduce another flavor: cashew cookie. I initially created these to be a replica of the Cashew Cookie Larabars. However, this homemade version ended up tasting so much better than the packaged bars! I might […]
