Berrylicious Fruit Smoothie

will make about 60 oz. 


  • 3 cups plant milk or water
  • 1/4 ripe pineapple
  • 2 bananas*
  • 2-3 cups frozen berries (I have a mix of strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries and pomegranate)
  • dates for sweetness, if needed

Blend in a high speed blender until smooth.

*you can substitute bananas with papaya

I think that I will sneak in a huge handful of greens into mine :)! Have to have greens!


  • Mix water, liquid sweetener (honey, agave, maple syrup, etc.) and lemon juice and you got it!




Main Course

(soy and gluten free)

My husband also requested vegan hot dogs, but I am still mulling over that one, since imitation hot dogs are not really REAL food. I might give in, however, since it is a once-a-year occasion for him. 🙂

He also asked for the best Vegan Macaroni and Cheese. I think it is an overkill ;), but might make it for him the day after.


Eat to Live!

With all of this good eating, the goal it to eat just enough, not too much :).  I hope that you will remember to do the same.   I am planning to stay more with fresh salads, smoothies, and, most likely my veggie burger.  I have a fridge filled with delicious, raw plants, so I will be taking advantage of that.
