    Getting Grounded Green Juice

    “Change is the only constant.” – Heraclitus Every time change comes, our bodies need grounding things inside us and around us to keep us more stable and secure in spite of whatever uncontrollable situation(s) around us.  It is my opinion that mineral and nervous system weaknesses can easily become exasperated in times of change or…

    Vegan Freezer Fudge

    Here goes again. Another dessert recipe. It’s the Autumn now, and sweet treats seem to be raining from the sky… it starts with Halloween in October and continues on until January hits, when people make those traditional “New Year’s Resolutions” to lose weight, or cut out sugar, or whatever fad “diet” that continues to bypass…

  • Squashy Mac-N-Cheese

    Squashy Mac-N-Cheese

    Imagine this: A mac-n-cheese alternative that tastes good AND is free of all of this::: Nuts. Dairy. Eggs. Meat. Soy. Corn. Gluten. Wheat. Grain. I made it happen one night at dinner. I’ll be honest… I felt like a kitchen-super-mom when my husband even approved of the final outcome during the “taste test.” Seriously… where’s…

  • Crazy Cocoa Bites

    Crazy Cocoa Bites

    I’m not gonna lie. I love chocolate. My daughters love chocolate. My husband loves chocolate. We are also somewhat health-conscious, yet always searching for budget-savvy ways to get a chocolate fix that isn’t detrimental to our health (or my daughters’ behavior!). This is how our Crazy Cocoa Bites came into existence…. Simple ingredients Affordable Easy…
