How I kicked the flu in 24 hours

I’m not sure if I ever really had the flu before and if I have, it’s been quite some time. With the constant badgering from the government to get flu shots via commercials and other advertisements, it’s a wonder that people share a common fear of the dreaded flu. I am anti-vaccine (a conversation we…

Raw Chocolate Cake

This cake is so rich and delicious. Make sure you have a few people to share it with, you won’t be able to finish it on your own (although I could, but I won’t). It is so insanely delicious, it is like a combination of cheesecake and fudge, it’s blissful. I think I need to…

Blossom

Located in Chelsea, New York this seemingly hidden vegan restaurant provides an elegant setting without the extravagant prices.

Raw Pizza and Pie, Oh My!

It was my son’s fourth birthday party and the plan was to order pizza for all of the guests. After all, not everyone is vegan and on a raw diet! I needed to make food for  myself  and wanted a little extra for people to try. I have a few family members that are very…

Brownies and Fudge Everyday!

I have always had a sweet tooth. My main love is chocolate, but I embrace most delightful treats. Unfortunately, as soon as the scrumptious desserts hit my lips, it’s as if they magically transferred right to my stomach and thighs; the two parts of my body that I can’t stand the most. Im currently in the midst…

Going Raw!!

For months now I have been considering changing my diet from vegan to raw vegan. It just makes sense to me that the best foods for our bodies, are the purest. Those that are provided from the earth, and not modified or processed in any way. While my health has improved dramatically over the course…
