Green ice cream

  What better way to kick off summer than green ice cream, right?  To be totally honest, I’m having a hard time digesting raw greens these days, and cooked greens are super unappealing to me right now.  So, this was my attempt to get my greens in on a hot summer day. I juiced a […]

Meatless Mondays

  What’s for dinner tonight?  Now that temperatures in LA have dropped just a bit (I know this empirically because my coconut oil is not liquid anymore), I am getting back to incorporating more warm, comforting seasonal foods.  There are many plant-based versions of mac and cheese, but this recipe, is by far my favorite […]

Homemade Almond Milk

  There are a ton of recipes out there about making your own almond milk (or hazelnut, macadamia nut, brazil nut, etc) but I’ve finally perfected my own method, thanks to my friend Elizabeth, and wanted to share it with you. First, you will need a high-powered blender like a Vitamix or BlendTec.  You can […]


  Hello friends! I have really enjoyed my dinner – steamed kale, quinoa, chickpeas, tomato, avocado, hemp seeds, dressing –  last night and lunch today (it was a repeat) so I thought I’d share it with you all virtually…(I wish you could take a bite out of the screen, it’s so yummy!)  This is a […]

Roasted Brussels

I know you’ve probably been eating roasted brussels sprouts for a while now – and you can’t believe how good they are!  You remember when you were a kid and no one liked them.  Well, that might’ve just been because they weren’t cooked well. That’s the thing with vegetables.  When they’re fresh, in season, and […]

Savory Breakfast – Pudla

  I have always been a savory breakfast person.  But as a plant-based eater, there aren’t a lot of options if you want something that’s soy free and protein-rich. I recently discovered this recipe on this blog and I’ve made it twice this week.  I’ve made socca before.  This is a little different as it’s […]

The Juice Craze

soon these pics won’t be sideways 😉 If you came to our society from outer space, it would be especially tough not to notice the juice craze that is currently in full effect.  In Los Angeles, especially, it seems there is a new juice company, replete with their own cleanses, popping up every week or […]
