Recipe: Raw Mexican Spiced Hot Chocolate

Día de los Muertos. I’ve always preferred this celebration over modern halloween because it’s all about honoring our ancestors and the sacred cycles of life and death. It reminds us to love this one life we have because everything is impermanent. Oh and there’s also that magical element that celebrates good food, drink and general feasting with family and friends. I can get down with that.

To celebrate, each year I start my day with this …

Recipes: Raw Chocolate Orange Mousse Cake

I’m celebrating this week.  Celebrating life, blissful connections, new opportunities, spending time in nature, being with close friends and beloved family, sweet weddings, golden orange and pink sunsets on the beach, crisp clean saltwater-scented air, long meals and laughter in the kitchen…and much, much more.

Recipes: Radish & Hemp Seed Tabbouleh

My first introduction to real tabbouleh was through my Lebanese friends in DC.  My college roommates and closest friends were from Beirut, so we’d spend a few evenings throughout the year eating incredible home cooked Lebanese food with their families.  I was straight up spoiled. They had a big influence on my culinary tastes, and you’ll find my kitchen always stocked with za’atar, sumac, and plenty of fresh …

Recipes: Using Herbs & Citrus for Sugar-Free Juices

There’s something about drinking a green juice that makes my body vibrate on a higher level and the whole world seems to glow a little bit brighter after each sip.  Why is this?  It’s because when you drink a freshly-made, unpasteurized juice you’re infusing every cell of your body with high-alkaline, enzyme-rich, bio-available nutrients.

Maintaining a balanced, slightly alkaline pH is essential to good health.  Juicing fresh fruits and vegetables provide …

Recipes: Blueberry Orange Amaranth Pancakes

This morning we woke up with heavy hearts and thunderstorms still pounding outside our window.  Oklahoma’s largest recorded tornado swept through Moore yesterday, a town just 15 minutes south of us.  I had listened to the tornado sirens sound all day while watching the hail pound the just-bloomed trees.   It was nerve-wracking and eerie, listening but not knowing where it would hit or if it would at all.  I’ve been …
