Quinoa Cannellini Bean Burgers

I thank Dianne for the inspiration for these quinoa burgers. She casually mentioned planning to make some, so I thought I would follow suit. These were pretty tasty, and my discerning taste-testing team gave them a hearty “2-thumbs up”. The recipe is a tad “scavenger” as I used what was on hand, so I encourage…

Broccoli Avocado Soup

I’m writing this as I enjoy a nice, warm cup of Holy Basil tea, and I can’t help but think that I never would have thought that I’d be sharing a soup recipe in the middle of May! Climate change sure is bringing us tumultuous weather! We enjoyed this tasty soup earlier in the week,…

Raw Vegan Date Squares

Oh my goodness we adore date squares. Robb likes to conduct “research” by visiting bakeries and testing out date squares (and butter tarts I might add) in efforts to find “the one”. It’s a tough job, I know, but one he bravely and tenaciously takes on – all in the name of research! Looking for…

Coconut Cacao Chia Pudding

Wishing for a departure from my traditional smoothie for breakfast, I’ve been experimenting with chia pudding. Chia is a remarkable seed, jam-packed with nutrients, and it is incredibly versatile.

Sesame Chews

Oh how I loved those sesame crisp candies when I was growing up. Not only did you risk breaking your teeth, but once softened, they stuck to your teeth and yanked out fillings….my dentist’s dream! Kidding aside, sesame seeds themselves are a nutrition powerhouse. They are packed with important, bone-building minerals (calcium and magnesium), iron,…

Enter broccoli and spinach. Both lend themselves well as substitutes and pack a punch nutritionally. To further boost the nutrient content,…

Sweet Potato Bliss

The inspiration for these incredibly yummy roasted sweet potatoes came from an Instagram feed I follow called project sunny. It was such a great idea to load up roasted sweet potatoes with a variety of tasty and nutritious toppings – brilliant! So, with full credit to project sunny, I set out to make my own version with…

Rice Cake Peanut Butter Balls

One night last week we both had a hankering for something sweet. Trouble was we had nothing in the house – oh no! No fear, Robb donned his magic apron and got right to work – is there nothing this man can’t do? Within minutes, Robb presented these tasty treats that really only did take…

Raw Chocolate Walnut Stuffed Dates

I recently had what I thought was a brilliant idea – stuff dates with brain-healthy walnuts. Easy, tasty, and nutritious – bam! Then I thought what would really knock them out of the park would be to dip them in chocolate. To keep them healthy, it couldn’t be just any old waxy, processed chocolate. It…
