Recipes: Cashew-Free Raw Vegan German Chocolate Cake

At 11pm on Tuesday night, I crawled into bed with a handful of cookbooks and asked my boyfriend, “If you could have any one dessert for your birthday what would it be?”

We flipped through the cookbooks of NYC’s beloved vegan bakery Babycakes and found some close winners. But Matthew Kenney & Meredith Baird’s Everyday Raw Desserts took the cake, literally.  Our eyes settled on their recipe …

Recipes: Chopped Summer Salad with Lemon Dill Vinaigrette

Somewhere in between traveling to Tulum for pure escapism and a trip to Alaska for a wedding and a workshop…summer happened.  My mind is still in May, yet the calendar says it’s…what! Mid-August?!

Perhaps it’s because I’m finally out of school and still adjusting to the different meaning summer has taken on now.  But I feel like I missed out on those long lazy days lying under the …

Recipes: Vanilla Rhubarb Tartlets

Get ready for a slew of summer dessert posts! Right now, I’m inspired by all the fresh berries and gorgeous produce that’s in season now. This post in particular was inspired by my summers growing up in Southeast Alaska, where rhubarb grew like weeds in our backyard.  Not much really grows in the leached out soils of Ketchikan, where the annual rainfall can be as much as 200 …

Recipes: Grapefruit Lavender Juice

Two weeks ago I did a photoshoot with my talented friends, Greer Inez and Sara Kate.  We shot inside one of my favorite buildings, the historic Fred Jones building in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City.  It was built in 1916 as one of the original Ford factories where they assembled Model-T’s into the late ’20s.  The building itself is a dream, with 4 …

Recipes: Cleansing Cabbage Salad

If you’ve been following my Facebook page, you’re probably beginning to think I subsist solely off of juices and smoothies!  I have a fresh juice and a serious green smoothie (by serious, I mean 32oz mason jar filled to the top) everyday to nourish my body with high-alkaline, bio-available, easily digestible nutrients.  But a girls gotta eat, and as my good friend Kathleen loves to proudly announce, “I’m an EATER!”. …

Recipes: Root Chakra Juice

The Muladhara Chakra (mula=root, adhara=foundation, support) is located at the base of the spine at the sacral plexus.  It connects us with the earth and provides feelings of groundedness. It governs survival, our right to exist, and basic trust in ourselves and others. When this chakra is clear and energy flows through it freely, we feel secure and confident that we can easily fulfill our needs.  We cultivate a …

Recipes: Dark Chocolate Beet Brownies

I adore baked goods.  Absolutely adore them.  But the truth is, I don’t really get to eat them since I avoid gluten, dairy, and most processed gluten-free alternatives.  I’ve also learned the hard way that just because things are raw and vegan, doesn’t necessarily mean they should be eaten all the time.  I got caught in the trap of thinking anything ‘raw’ was automatically amazing for you.  Many times, raw …

Recipes: Toasted Chickpea & Broccoli Salad

In the winter, my body craves cooked foods – as it should! From an Ayurvedic perspective, we should eat warming, grounding foods in the wintertime to keep us well…warm and grounded.   So instead of a raw broccoli and chickpea salad, I decided to toast the chickpeas in the skillet with caramelized onions, lightly steamed broccoli and lacinato kale.

If you’re sprouting the chickpeas, make sure to …
