easy breakfast – carrot cake oatmeal

We made this carrot cake raw oatmeal in my last cooking class. I love raw oatmeal because the oats retain their nutritional value when they’re raw, and because it’s an easy meal to prep, though you do have to start it the night before. This carrot cake raw oatmeal takes it to the next level,…

zucchini-butternut squash smoothie bowl

Another Saturday, another superfood & veggie smoothie bowl!  The deep dark green comes from the chlorella, matcha and zucchini. With all that green, you know this is nourishing you! Blend everything together in a high speed blender and enjoy tons of nutrition in one little bowl.   1  frozen raw zucchini, chopped 1/2 cup frozen…

matcha chlorella lemonade

You might multiply this recipe and make a big batch on a Sunday to enjoy all week long. I blend everything together in my vitamix so the matcha and chlorella powders dissolve completely.  I love matcha for its clean jitter-less energy and I love chlorella for its protein and chelating properties. Together they turn this…

cauli-sweet potato smoothie bowl v2

Another day, another smoothie bowl. You may remember the original cauli-sweet potato smoothie bowl I posted last month… but this one’s just a little bit different with no dates, maca or lucuma, or mesquite, adding cinnamon, reishi, and collagen. You know I love sweet potatoes, and to keep the color beautiful here, I’m using a white sweet potato along…

paleo beet hummus

Not all of us can eat beans… so I created this bean-free (paleo!) hummus. It’s super easy and delicious. Just give yourself enough time to soak your walnuts and roast your beets. In the picture, it’s layered with avocado and some seeds in an endive boat,  but you can eat it any way you would…

raw carrot-banana probiotic coconut yogurt

I love the coconut family and all of its health benefits, so naturally I’m kind of obsessed with raw coconut, and I’ve been having fun creating coconut yogurts.  Coconut meat is great to keep in the freezer to throw into smoothies or soups, or blend with water to make your own coconut milk. This yogurt has probiotics in…

vegan fruit gummy

I’ve been making gelatin gummies for a while now, but what about the vegans? After getting a few requests for a vegan gummy, I finally had some time to play around in the kitchen with some agar agar and make it happen! This is a great light snack for kids and adults. Agar agar is…

cauli-sweet potato smoothie bowl

As you know, I love to use frozen veggies in my smoothie instead of frozen fruit to keep them low-sugar. Cauliflower is so mild that it’s a great filler you can hardly taste, so it’s a good one to sneak into kids’ smoothies! I really love all sweet potatoes, no matter the color. For this…

cauliflower puree with chlorella oil

This is such a great alternative to mashed potatoes!  It’s super creamy with coconut butter, but you can also sub ghee or butter if you prefer.  And it was so fun to make this chlorella oil… now I’m drizzling it on top of roasted veggies, my favorite soup and this creamy cauliflower puree.  Add Protein Option:…

strawberry gummies

These gummies are full of protein and taste like a dream with NO added sugar. The sweetness comes from the strawberries alone, which means there’s no reason to feel guilty about eating these or feeding them to your kids. You can buy all kinds of silicone molds these days to make fun shapes for your…

This charcoal smoothie is perfect for your festival weekend. Taking charcoal before ingesting food and drinks that are more toxic/unclean than your usual intake can help your body to cope. Anytime you take charcoal,  you’ll want to accompany it with extra water to help flush the toxins from your system. This smoothie is great for intestinal…
