There’s nothing like a creamy, dreamy dish of homemade mac and cheese — unless, of course, you’re vegan or dairy doesn’t do your body good. But thanks to this out-of-the-box recipe, anyone can enjoy this childhood favorite. Instead of cheddar, it’s made with cauliflower “cheeze,” cleverly blended from fresh florets, nutritional yeast and almond milk to mimic the smooth texture and savory-sweet taste of dairy cheese.

When you think lasagna, rich red sauce and gooey, melted cheese–probably not vegetables–come to mind. But this raw recipe is going to turn your idea of this traditional Italian dish upside down. Layered with tender, fresh veggies, homemade tomato sauce and vegan macadamia nut “cheeze,” this raw, vegan and gluten-free entree can be eaten without an ounce of guilt. Get ready for a round of “delizioso” cheers from the family!
Someone broke your heart. You walked by a bakery. It’s three o’clock and you’re staring at a computer. Whatever it is that flips the switch, you want chocolate and you want it now!

A “clean” diet isn’t a quick-fix diet—it’s a lifestyle diet. Unlike most diets, a clean diet doesn’t involve intense restriction or going hungry. You don’t have to avoid any particular food groups. Read more →
Peas, string beans, butternut squash, carrots…the labels on those cute little jars of baby food sound so wholesome. But if you’re not choosing organic baby food, your baby’s first bites from a spoon might be anything but wholesome. Although the U.S. Department of Agriculture does not (yet) make claims that organic foods are more nutritious than conventional produce, here are 5 reasons why this mom of three thinks it’s not worth taking the risk on infant foods that don’t have the non-GMO, certified organic stamp.
Growing up I was anything but healthy. Soda drinker, fast food consumer, microwaver-of-everything — and when it came to exercise, let’s just say I could barely spell the word. Over time I realized that the decisions I made here and now not only impacted my short-term future, but my health and well-being down the road as well.
