Epic Quinoa Salad with Citrus Dressing

I did a delirious dance of joy when I tasted this epic salad. The orange citrus dressing has a complex sweet and spicy flavor that will make you weak at the knees, and the crunchy, sweet, and peppery elements of the salad make this dish a satisfying meal or side dish, and a showstopping addition to a potluck or party. I included this sensational salad as part of a series of recipes I created using the new KitchenAid® high-speed blender. You can view all of my recipes on the

Lavender Almond Chia Pudding

Living an alkaline lifestyle was a game changer for me. Watch the facebook live video I did about the importance of eating alkaline forming foods. Since I posted that video, I've been overwhelmed with hundreds of emails about alkalinity, and requests for awesome alkaline recipes. Hands down, the best alkaline cookbook I've seen is Eat Well, Live Better, Feel Better by Julie Cove. Founder of Alkaline Sister, Julie is a Canadian holistic nutritionist and plant-based cook.

Moroccan Carrot Dip

This quick easy carrot dip is infused with a delicious blend of Moroccan-style spices that will make you weak at the knees. The steamed carrot brings in a nice sweetness and the tahini delivers a rich, creamy texture. I love this dip with seed crackers or veggie sticks, and adds awesome exotic flavor slathered on sandwiches and wraps. I always add Massel broth to my dips to infuse an extra layer of flavor. Massel has a range of gluten-free, vegan, kosher broth powders and liquids in…

Orange and Poppy Seed Muffin Smoothie

This orange and poppy seed smoothie that I created for the launch of the new KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender tastes like a muffin in a glass, and satisfies a craving for a baked treat without the need to bake. It's also a healthier sweet treat. Depending on the size of your oranges you may want to tweak the amount of orange to get the balance juuust right for a magic muffin experience. The secret to nailing the batter flavor is a blend of raw cashews and rolled oats. To that, you…

Tomato and Eggplant Pasta

I love eggplant! And I'll take it any way I can get it. I'm quite partial to some miso-roasted eggplant squares, it makes fabulous low-carb replacements for conventional pasta sheets in lasagnas, and it's magic in tomato-based pasta dishes. This recipe I'm sharing today is a staple in our house. It's super easy to throw together and is absolutely delicious. I'm not a fan of pre-packaged pasta sauces. They always lack depth of flavor, and they're not as fresh and nutrient-dense as the…

Paleo Chimichurri Abundance Bowl

I'm enjoying all of your emails about the new KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender. It's been available exclusively at Williams-Sonoma for the last few months, and it's about to hit the shelves at Macy's, Bed Bath & Beyond, and other retailers in the next month. The blender will be available in Europe and Australia in September/October/November. It's an exciting time in the blender space. Finally, we have style and substance. One of the biggest complaints with high-speed blenders is…

Vegan Caramelized Onion Chickpea Frittata

We’re in an era where the word is out: Sugar is the enemy of health. The relationship between sugar and disease has been well documented – sugar causes inflammation, and excessive and inappropriate inflammation leads to disease. Refined sugars found in processed foods are the worst offenders. But, so-called “natural sweeteners” like maple syrup, coconut nectar, coconut sugar, agave, and others, when eaten in large quantities also wreak havoc in our bodies. I would also suggest that…

Vegan Nacho Cheezy Popcorn

This vegan nacho cheezy popcorn from the Eaternity cookbook by my dear friend Jason Wrobel is so ridicously delicious that we have been making batches all summer long for our games nights and movie watching. All of our friends have been freaking out about it, and I've printed off the recipe more times than I can count. When I first read the recipe I thought, "that makes a lot of popcorn! We'll never eat it!" Well, there's a reason why the recipe is so generous, because it is so good…

Pomegranate Doogh (Yogurt Soda)

Yogurt lovers: I've got a treat for you! Award-winning food writer Cheryl Sternman Rule (author of one of my favorite books, Ripe) released another incredible cookbook last year celebrating everything you can make with yogurt! The book, titled Yogurt Culture: A Global Look at How to Make, Bake, Sip, and Chill the World's Creamiest, Healthiest Food is utterly fabulous. I've been wanting to share this book with you for over a year, but my overwhelming book commitments got in the way…

Green Tea Avocado Skin Mask

"What do you use on your skin to keep it so smooth?" I get asked this question every week. While I maintain that you love your skin from the inside out by keeping hydrated; eating a diet rich in high-water-content foods like leafy greens and non starchy veggies, healthy plant-based fats, and antioxidants; getting lots of sleep; and staying out of the sun; using natural topical masks and creams does bolster your internal agenda. What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we…
