Pistachio Cacao Truffles

Chocolate is a guilty pleasure of mine. I love sweets and if they're healthy and raw it's a win win. The holidays are coming and there is nothing better than a little box of these sweet babies to share a gift or make as a treat for everyone to indulge. I'm all about a good time, fabulous party or gift ideas. This is my famous raw almond...

Giving Thanks For This Body – Stop ...

As Americans, we spend an inordinate amount of time hearing about how inferior our bodies are. We're too tall, or too short, or too fat, or too skinny.

For me, I’d hate to die with regrets.  To feel like I could have but didn’t. Knowing I really wanted to do something but never really...

Raw Vegan Pizza

I love pizza.  And just because I eat a raw diet, does not mean I'm going to sacrifice this dish.  Nohow, no way. Last week I had the opportunity to spend 4 days with Alissa Miller, gourmet raw food chef, going through her Raw Food Teacher Training.
