By Ashley | Dessert , Uncategorized

When you really want to knock the socks off of your less-than-healthy friends and family who demand the most sugar-filled, butter laden holiday desserts (and always manage to steer clear of your kale salad and raw pecan pie), you make Bourbon Butterscotch Custard Pie! Because who doesn’t want their dessert spiked? And who can resist the sweet buttery flavor of butterscotch? Or custard? And to be truthful, the holidays are just cold, dark, sad winter days if […]

No-Fail Falafel

By Ashley | Entree , Uncategorized

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I generally have no problem saying “No” to fried foods. I mean, sure. I love a certain level of grease just as much as the next person, but I have found that nut butter and coconut oil based treats usually satisfy my craving for fat. And avocados. Always avocados. Ohhhh, and Spaghetti Aglio, because you can’t beat pasta smothered in superb olive oil and sooo much garlic. Anyway, I can […]

And although I do not plan to follow a strict vegan diet in the near future, I have realized how satisfying a diet free of added sugar, dairy, refined carbohydrates and packed with nutrient-rich plants can truly be.

Juicing – Day 4

By Ashley | Uncategorized

I never thought I could love apple, lemon, and leafy green juice but after four days I can officially say the combination is wonderful! Today wasn’t so much a juicing day because I had more smoothies than juices but it everything I consumed was nutritious and energizing! I gave one 16 oz. juice to a coworker who needed much more than I did, but I replaced it with a smoothie with greens, tahini, vanilla, and […]
