Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we thought we would teach you how to make one of those quintessential breakfast staples which can also moonlight as a snack or as dessert! To me nothing is more fun or romantic as a yummy breakfast shared together, and I also happen to love making a great delicious breakfast for myself when Carlos has to work early. It’s a great form of self love and self care to take the time to prepare and serve a breakfast you really feel like eating, so in this month of celebrating love, we’re making these scrumptious waffles. Perfect whether you’re celebrating the love of having friends around a big brunch, a romantic breakfast for two, or the perfect party for one.Read More
Let's face it, smoothies are in because we've finally found a way to make adult milkshakes and have them any time of day. For some it's an excuse to have a post workout boost of nutrition, for others it's the ideal meal on the go. For some of us smoothies are all about piling on the veggies to make sure we're getting plenty of greens and other nutrients throughout the day. For me though, although many of these reasons play a part, I love the silky smooth texture, combined with its really cold temperature, and of course, having something sweet yet nutritious.
If you're like me though, you've settled on one or two that you really love and keep making them over and over again. Today's post and episode is all about mixing things up.Read More
I've gotten so many requests for this video I can´t even tell you. I think people are always curious when it comes to how to fill your plate when you eat a vegan diet and rightfully so.

Although I'm constantly sharing some of our meals in the blog and podcast, I thought it was time to show you "a day in my eating life", only this time do it on video! What you'll get to see are the goodies we ate this past Saturday in which we also took a walk with the doggies, went to the farmer's market, did some grilling and of course ate delicious food and brought you along for the ride.Read More
My mother used to say that whenever you had something that was keeping you up at night or making you sad, there was one magic remedy and that was making homemade bread. As with almost everything my mama was right. There's nothing like creating your own bread at home. Starting with a bag of flour and turning it into breakfast. Plus you get that extra heart warming feeling of having your home smell like a wonderful bakery.
The process of making bread usually involves developing the yeast in warm water with a bit of sugar, preparing your bread dough, kneading it and then letting it rise, sometimes twice and for one or two hours. Suffice it to say it's a long but beautiful process. Today however, we're sharing this amazing recipe for a no knead, no rise Irish soda bread! Plus we're addingRead More
