Neapolitan NiceCream with Sliced Bananas and Chocolate! Oh Mama Mia!
This dessert inspired breakfast is actually healthy for you and absolutely lick-your bowl delicious! I added super-foods in the chocolate and berry mixture to provide us with the fuel needed for our day.
*Tip if you place your dish in the freezer first it helps prevent melting.
Today we went to our favorite Thai restaurant only it was in our kitchen! I felt like preparing a delicious and big meal for a late lunch that would be sure to give my husband the fuel needed for the rest of his day. I started by preparing a marinade for the tofu and covered the tofu in a shallow dish. Then I placed some jasmine rice in a rice cooker.
I prepared a delicious almond sauce and chopped chopped chopped to prepare for the raw and vegan rice wraps!
I placed the rice wraps one at a time in warm/hot water, carefully pulled them out and then filled them with fresh vegetables and almond sauce. I placed it on a plate with the leftover chopped veggies to create a beautiful platter. My husband said "did you make that?" success!
Then I fried the tofu in a wok and placed it on a bed of chopped veggies and served it with the hot rice. Bon Appétit!!! WoW your loved ones with this meal! You could totally enjoy one or the other vs. having it all at once, lately I have really been enjoying offering a wide variety. It's very appealing to the senses!

Watermelon, mixed berries, lime, a dash of stevia and water create a refreshing and healthy drink! We enjoyed this beauty before our walk and we both loved it! What a fun way to drink water. It reminded me of a berry limeade but super healthy!
Plus it's really easy to make!
Enjoy this quick shot of vitamin C and a boost of antioxidants to go with it any time of day!
Glow on beautiful!

This soup is sweet yet spicy, rich, creamy and full of vibrant flavors. Sweet potatoes and radishes combined with curry adds a new layer and dimension to the soup that is both delightful and unexpected.
This soup warms you up from the insight out and makes your belly and body smile! Sweet potatoes are loaded with Vitamin A, radishes detoxify your body and curry powder helps protect the immune system from bacterial infections. These foods combined create a magically delicious and healthy soup!
This recipe was inspired and modified from "The Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook" which I absolutely love! It has a wealth of information, fantastically delicious recipes and funny commentary to go with it.
Cheers to a happy healthier you!
Ever since I discovered how to make a Pumpkin Spice Latte from the beautiful and talented Kathy Patalsky of Healthy.Happy.Life my husband and I have been hooked! With no pumpkin in our house and a serious hankering for a latte a new creation was born. A Cinnamon Vanilla Latte inspired by one of our favorite guilty pleasures we enjoy but this one is guilt-free, sugar-free and absolutely savory!
Note: I have a Blendtec that can handle hot liquids. It could be blended cool and then heated. I do it in this order for foam optimization. A handheld blender could also be used!
I hope you and yours enjoy this as much as we do!
With love, health and good vibrations!
Snickers NiceCream with Berry Beet Soft Serve for two! Today we started our day with a dream in a cup, a slice of heaven on earth and a bowl inspired by the gods! A touch of this a dash of that and voilà a beautiful meal fit for a king. My husbands eyes lit up when I brought it to him. I love those meals!
The base is 3 cups of frozen bananas, 1/2 of a frozen raw snickers bar (recipe from @lilsipper on Instagram in her Health-e-Cookbook - Also in my new cookbook available in my store for less! Or you could use my new recipe for peanut butter caramel slice, that would be divine.
An extra tbsp of frozen raw chocolate and 1 tbsp of almond butter pulsed and blended until it forms a beautiful ice-cream. Take an ice-cream scoop and place on the bottom of a cup or bowl, place in freezer while preparing the next layer.
For the top layer take 1 cup frozen berries, 1 small frozen banana, 1 tsp beet powder and opt to include 1/8 cup frozen coconut meat, blend until creamy. Use an ice-cream scoop to place on top and surround with fresh banana slices. Heavenly!
I broke 2 spatulas in the making but it was worth it! My husband asked if everything was alright today (haha!) I told him it was my HER-cules force. Oops! I said may they rest in peace, he said pieces. Bahaha. Thankfully he took the pieces that didn't snap and created a new improved spatula for my she-force! ;)
Blend, Scoop, Serve or place in freezer and proceed to layer 2!
Berry Beet Soft Serve
Blend, scoop, serve on top of the Snickers Nice-Cream and Serve with Banana Coins! I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
With radiant love & light!

Meatless Monday calls for good eatin'! Tonight we had Blackened Black Bean Burgers with Steak Fries. This recipe is so good I can't wait to share it with y'all. Steak Fries are a new favorite in our home, it's a real treat plus they are oil-free so I don't feel so bad whipping up a big batch. Tonight we did it up. We had homemade tomato soup leftover from last night. I reheated it and when I came back from setting it down my soul mate left me a message! It's the small things in life that make my heart SWOON!
We only had enough soup to dab our fries in and get a couple spoonfuls. I thought I'd "beef" up our meal with Blackened Black Bean Burgers and Steak Fries. It was one hell of a meal that left us both with a nice full belly and a ton of satisfaction.
This meal is SO good I highly recommend making it for you or your loved ones. Plus it is HEALTHY! No guilt here folks.
I've been enjoying oil-free fries for a while now but never had the "perfect" fry. It turns out I was missing a secret step! This was revealed to me on Instagram. I LOVE Instagram if you aren't following please swing by, I post pictures and sometimes recipes when I'm not blogging. I love connecting with a broad community of like minded healthy foodies! It's really fun and I learn awesome tips and tricks. One trick I was introduced to me by one of my favorite talented girlfriends Nika @thefitfruitbat! She revealed the secret - curry powder! You slice and BOIL the potatoes with 2 tbsp of curry powder until they are half-way done and then you proceed to bake. It doesn't impact the flavor yet brings forth crispy oil-free fries that are to die for.
Elizabeth writes "I love your burger and fries and the idea from Ig on the fries is something I never heard before. The colors and designs in your food are amazing as always!"
And for dessert Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte's!
This recipe is SO good and helps stave off cravings for a cappuccinos and lattes! The recipe is from the glorious Kathy Patalsky of Healthy.Happy.Life. I love her blog and recipes. I modified the recipe to use a dark batch of coffee vs. espresso due to what we have on hand and stevia vs. maple syrup for a sugar-free latte!!! Oh yeah! Watch how to make it by clicking HERE.
I love finding delicious alternatives to some of my unhealthy habits. May you enjoy endless healthy and delicious meals and continue to thrive!
Best wishes for a vibrant week ~ Shine on!
