Berry Chia Jam

I will never buy jam or jelly from a grocery store ever again. Neither will you after you make this delicious berry chia jam. There's just something about all-natural, homemade jam that tastes so much better than store-bought jam. Fresh with the just right amount of sweetness. Not to mention, chia seeds are loaded with [...]

Black Bean Burrito

Ah, black beans. I have so many good things to say about them. They're packed with protein... high in fiber... great for your digestive tract... I could go on and on. For these black bean burritos, you can use any tortilla of your choice. My favorite tortillas for these are the wheat and corn flour tortillas [...]

Mango Sticky Rice

For years, I was so excited to go out for Thai food because Thai restaurants were the only place I could order mango sticky rice for dessert. For some reason, it never occurred to me to make my own... and I never realized how easy it is! For most mango sticky rice recipes, you have to soak the [...]

Coco-Roons: My New Favorite Vegan Cookies!

If you've read any of my other blog posts, then you know how much I LOVE healthy snacks. Especially if they're vegan. And gluten-free. And contain coconut.  I was shopping at Walmart this weekend and my friend and I discovered Sejoyia Coco-Roons in the gluten-free section. We were looking for healthy poolside snacks, and needless to [...]

Quinoa & Oats Breakfast Bowl

For this breakfast bowl, you can use either rolled oats or steel-cut oats. Steel cut oats sit lower on the glycemic index, but they take longer to cook, at least 30 minutes. (Those on a gluten-free diet will want to make sure to use pure oats that don't contain wheat.) For the granola, I recommend [...]

Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Cups

I can’t believe I went my whole life without knowing how easy it is to make your own chocolate. And of course, after learning this, my first impulse was to make my childhood favorite candy – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Sorry Reese’s, but these homemade peanut butter cups are so much better! They’re vegan, gluten-free, [...]

Homemade Coconut Popsicles

In high school, my friends and I used to buy coconut popsicles every day in the school cafeteria. They tasted just like these popsicles (minus the whole dairy-free, sugar-free element.) I recently remembered these pops and realized how easy they'd be to make, considering I make most of my homemade ice cream with coconut milk. [...]

Vegan Snickers Ice Cream Bar

Sometimes, when I'm making a new recipe, it doesn't always turn out the way I'd hoped. Other times, it turns out even better. This is one of those times. I have to give credit to Minimalist Baker for inspiring this vegan Snickers ice cream bar recipe. I had to tweak it a bit and eliminate [...]

Vegan Plantain Tacos with Mango Lime Sauce

A few years ago, I went to my very first vegan restaurant in L.A. with a friend of mine who was a strict vegan. While looking over the menu, I had no idea what half of the menu items were Seitan? Tempeh? It was like a foreign language. So I settled on an item that [...]

Constipation No More! The Best Constipation Remedies

Confession: Up until about a year ago, I had battled with constipation my whole life. I tried every constipation cure known to man: prune juice, probiotics, ginger, laxatives, enemas, you name it. I even went so far as to have colonics because they were the only thing that helped eliminate the constant blockage I felt inside of [...]

Best Restaurants in Los Angeles (Vegan and Gluten-Free Options Too!)

Part of the reason I moved to Los Angeles from the East Coast was because of the incredible selection of diverse restaurants in the city. When it comes to dining out, I generally look for places with good ambiance (modern decor, trendy vibe), yummy drink selection, and healthy food (vegetarian meals preferably, and the more [...]

Homemade Chocolate Covered Cherries (Raw & Vegan)

I'm pretty sure my life changed the day I discovered that I could make my own chocolate at home. With only three ingredients. My kitchen is always stocked with coconut oil, cocoa powder, coconut butter and sweetener, so I can whip up a homemade chocolate snack when I have a craving. (Peanut butter works too if you [...]
