Green Juice w/ Apple & Fresh Oregano

Why Use Oregano? Oregano helps with the common cold, coughs, asthma, croup, bronchitis (nobody got time for that), heartburn, bloating, menstrual cramps, rheumatoid arthritis, urinary tract disorders including urinary tract infections (UTIs), headaches, heart conditions, muscle pain, acne, dandruff, toothache, bloating, intestinal parasites, earache, fatigue, and even repelling insects. You can also take oregano oil to prevent and cure these ailments. Drink up! Ingredients: 1/4 cup [...]

Green Juice: Pear

I just got a Vitamix and I am so excited to finally be able to make my own juices. I can’t stand spending 10 dollars on a juice from Organic Avenue or Juice Press when I can make the same thing at home for 1/3 of the price. And Organic Avenue opens at 8am, which [...]

Salmon & Arugula Salad w/ Walnuts, Onion & Heart of Palm

I was unsure what I wanted for lunch today, so I went with an easy option…and pretty much the only thing I could make with what I had in my fridge. This salad is really easy and while the salmon cooks, you can prep your veggies and clean up, so when all’s said and done, [...]

Homemade Almond Milk

I have come to love making almond milk; it’s quick (under 15 minutes with cleaning), healthy and delicious. …And now that I have a Nespresso coffee maker, I’ve been making fancy coffee drinks with my fancy homemade almond milk—so fancy. In addition to coffee, you can use your almond milk for smoothies, oatmeal or even [...]

Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I never was a huge fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups, but I do like dark chocolate and peanut butter so I consulted my friend, Google, and found this delicious recipe from the Goodness Green blog. I changed the cocoa to cacao, but really it’s probably all the same. I made these three times and [...]

Cauliflower & Lentil Porridge

‘Tis the season to eat lentils! I mean, they are so much tastier than a cookie or egg nog, right? Exactly. With the onions and carrots in this dish, you will be eating sweet vegetables, which actually helps with sweet cravings and regulating blood sugar – I like to call this a win. Embrace our [...]

Arugula, Scallop & Brussels Sprout Salad

Scallops are great on their own, but if you want to change it up or if you’ve never made them at all, they make a lovely salad topper. I normally make my salads with chicken or some kind of fish, but I ordered a ton of scallops and needed to use them up. In addition, [...]

Baked Asian Chicken Salad w/ Heart of Palm

I used to hate cooking chicken. I mean, I think we can all agree that a piece of uncooked chicken is not that attractive, or any raw meat or fish, for that matter. But, alas, we need our protein, and if cook and eat animal protein, we should get accustomed to handling the meat, right? [...]

Garlic and Olive Oil Mahi Mahi over Sautéed Kale

I have learned to love making mahi mahi. This fish is light in color and rich in nutrients and can be be pretty much topped with anything, making it similar to chicken (okay, maybe that’s like saying you can cook a snake with some lemon and it tastes like chicken, or camel, but you get [...]
