Body Ecology Tart Cranberry & Almond Smoothie

I'm posting this Body Ecology cranberry smoothie in honor of the release of Donna Gate’s new book, “The Baby Boomer Diet” and the companion DVD series, “Growing Younger". Those of you who've been following me for a while would be familiar with how The Body Ecology Diet changed my life. I had suffered lethargy and candida my whole life, and after trying every whole foods diet known to man, I started on Body Ecology stage one and never looked back. Donna had successfully cherry picked…

Raw Lemon Cranberry Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

It is cranberry season and I could not be happier! I admit to having performed my signature dance of joy with reckless abandon in the middle of the farmer's market on the weekend whilst salivating over all of the plump delicious fresh cranberries on offer. The "tart-at-heart" in me was rejoicing as I contemplated "death by excessive cranberry consumption." Just call me the scarlet lady! What can I say, those plump glossy tart little berries were just begging to be exploited! So, I…

Super Spinach and Chickpea Burgers

I am posting these spinach and chickpea burgers in honor of my dear friend Kris. Those of you who have been following me for a while will remember Kris from many of my posts: the potato salad, key lime mousse, cherry limeade mocktail, spinach dip, socca and many many others others. You might also remember her packing my car with the precision of an obsessed surgeon when I moved to LA last year! I have made many trips back to Missouri, she has come to visit me in LA, and we speak almost…

Vegan Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

I've got a simple little gem today. This soup is a staple in our house during the fall. When butternut squash is in season in North America I always crave my mother's roasted veggies. I love heading up to my local farmer's market and picking some different varieties of squash to roast with some carrot, onions, and garlic. Roasting is righteous. Baking these foods brings out the natural sweetness and gives you a beautiful depth of flavor. The ginger and cilantro root is mellow,…

Super Fruity Fever Green Smoothie

This smoothie is heavenly. It's one of my favorite sweet blends. If you've never tried baby bok choy in a smoothie, add it to you leafy green rotation because it's mild in flavor, and goes into most blends unnoticed. Pair with sweet fruits like pineapple, mango, banana, apple, pear, citrus, berries, and grapes. Start with 1 cup, and add to taste. In large amounts, it can get slightly bitter. Rich in vitamins A, C, and K, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous,…

Green Tea Ice Cream Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

I enjoy a cup of green tea, and I absolutely love green tea ice cream. But after rubbing my dairy-drenched belly on way too many occasions I had to develop a recipe that would enable my addiction without the need to coat-check my colon! This recipe from The Blender Girl smoothies app hits the spot. Now, I'll warn you, this smoothie is for green tea lovers. If that's not you, move onto the next smoothie. This smoothie has distinct strong green tea flavor. What I love the most about…

Vegan Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie from The Blender Girl Smoothies app

Those of you who've tasted the pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie, blueberry pie, peach pie, cherry pie, and lemon cheesecake smoothies may already share my pie-in-a-glass-smoothie obsession. If not, here's my spiel: On days when you're not inclined to bake to get your pie-lovin fix, a liquid pie smoothie satisfies the cravings. This healthier spin is gentler on the hips but no less delectable on the lips. Today, I cast the sensational orange-flesh sweet potato as the star attraction…

Salty Alkaline Kale Green Smoothie

This salty and savory smoothie tastes like liquid guacamole and is an alkaline avenger containing some of the top alkaline forming foods to bolster health. Kale - 1 cup can be added to most smoothies without changing the flavor. Pair with tomato, avocado, coconut, chile, lime, lemon (juice and zest), and bell pepper in savory blends. Powerful phytonutrients in kale have antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties that are unleashed when the leaves are blended. Packed with calcium, iron,…

Awesome Alkalizer Green Smoothie My Go-To Breakfast

After indulging in what felt like a toxic acidic orgy and love fest with Mr. Darcy, I've decided to lovingly offer a detox with one of my favorite alkaline green smoothies to celebrate International Green Smoothie Day. I get a lot of emails asking me about oxalate toxicity. To avoid this, I rotate my greens to include romaine, kale, chard, collard greens, radish greens, beet greens, dandelion greens, parsley and many others. I only use spinach in a lot of the recipes on the blog…

Raw Alkaline Tomato Kale Chips

Well....our love affair and obsession with Mr. Darcy comes to an end today (well, for a while anyway) as I share the last fabulous recipe from our "Pride and Prejudice" movie marathon. I shared the lasagne, coconut balls and mint chocolate chip cookies. The last recipe from the evening was these sun dried tomato pesto kale chips. I offered the disclaimer last week that these raw kale chips were hard to quit eating. But I feel I must stress the point again. You and your will power have…

Raw Vegan Choc-Mint Almond Cookies

Thank you for all of your lovely emails, Facebook and Twitter messages, and comments about our "Pride and Prejudice" marathon movie night. It is nice to know there are so many fellow Jane Austen fans out there! Seeing as I couldn't zap you all to our event (believe me, I would have if I could have) I will share the remaining two recipes on our delectable raw menu. Today I am sharing the mint chocolate chip cookies, and next week I will post the sun dried tomato kale chips! I will…
