Cucumber Chickpea Salad {Vegan Recipe}

I had a very exciting morning so far--I just placed a bulk order for nuts, seeds and dates through a co-op located in the Northwest.

Creamy Kale Green Smoothie Recipe {Cleanse Day 2}

How are you, loves? I am feeling fantastic.  I finished off day 1 of our 3-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse and woke up 1.5 lbs lighter this morning.

Raw Vegan Recipes | Okroshka

I  woke up with no sense of hunger at all. It took me a couple of hours to get there, which put me in a very exploratory and creative mood... for desserts :) [lucky for you]. I snacked on less than a cup of what was left over from Borscht and then went on a scavenger hunt through our fridge. I had planned to make a soup or salad and raw desserts. A while back I found a … [Read more...]

Back then, I do not think that we intentionally fermented cabbage with other veggies for the health benefits, but it was a fringe benefit for sure--we simply did it to preserve enough cabbage to last us through the … [Read more...]
