Coconut-Raisin Flakes Cereal

Cereal & Cartoons. A nostalgic duo reminiscent of Saturday morning in the 90’s! Growing up I loved sugary cereals like Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Puffs, Captain Crunch, etc. After making this lifestyle change, I don’t crave sweets much. I even like stevia now! I never use white, granulated sugar in anything I eat. Usually, Stevia, coconut…

Raw Vegan Challenge Week 4_Days 22 to 28

As usual, I’d start the week by cleaning out my refrigerator and getting rid of anything that had gone bad or added leftovers to smaller containers. Next, I would write down the items I didn’t have to create my full grocery list of items I’d need for the week. So for example, if I still had…

Discussion: Shopping list, Budget, Exercise, How I felt overall, Weight loss & Meals To start my week right, I’d do lots of research, scouring the internet for recipes or I’d flip through Kimberly Snyder’s books for raw recipes I could try.

Lemon Greek Potatoes

Greek/Mediterranean cuisine is my favorite! It’s fresh and filling. When I used to travel for work, I discovered a Mediterranean restaurant in a small town. This was the first time I was exposed to lemon potatoes. I was, for some crazy reason, skeptical about lemon soaked potatoes. So very tasty. Of course I had to try to…

Elephant Wrap

Elephants are vegan! Who knew? These large, intelligent, remember-it-all mammals love greens… And so do I! Rice Flour, gluten-free wraps are usually my go-to wrap. However, since I aim to eat light to heavy, I am attempting to save carbs for dinner time. Therefore, I decided to use this collard green in place of a…

A Farmer’s Caesar Salad

Salads are my favorite go-to lunch and appetizer. I am constantly thinking of new ways to revamp salads to make them less boring. Growing up salads were not meals and usually consisted of iceberg lettuce, tomato and cucumber with Italian, French or Thousand Island dressing. Today, none of those dressings ever rest in my refrigerator…

Spanish Cauliflower Rice & Beans

Cauliflower contains vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B6 protein, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, potassium, and manganese-to name a few. Cauliflower also has half the amount of carbohydrates as white rice and…
