Have you been contacted yet by your friendly neighbourhood Arbonne consultant? We all know one, don’t we? This might have something to do with the fact that the number of Arbonne consultants has doubled, worldwide, in the past year. Unfortunately, Arbonne…
Does February seem like it just passed? Maybe so, but we don’t mess around here when it comes to our retreats. I’ve already been researching, planning and booking and can’t wait to announce all the details of our upcoming 2014…
To say that last week was a busy rush of insanity would be a minor understatement. You saw the roundup right? I was running from to and fro on the UnDiet book promo train and when I wasn’t out and…
Raw cookie dough made like this, is the perfect fuel for the nervous system. The true definition of comfort food. I never really understood the cookie dough thing. It just didn’t make sense to me. People go nuts for the stuff….
Passover is a Jewish holiday that extends for eight days, requiring observers to avoid leavened bread. That’s the basic rule. No problem. I don’t remember the last time I ate leavened bread. Beyond this- the rules get a little fuzzy….
I was never into vegetable loaves. I think it went back to the days of the mystery meat dishes we were served at summer camp. The whole thing about a loaf is that you really have no idea what kinds…
We choose diets like vegan, raw, pale etc. in the hopes of achieving health. But can sticking to this diet too closely make us sick?
Cutting back on meat and don’t know what to make that will be hearty and warming? Try Meghan’s amazing no-meat Shepherd’s Pie and rich creamy gravy.
I know, I know- soy is a hotly debated topic in the whole foods community. This post caused a bit of a stir, naturally, as I pointed out all the places GMO soy likes to hang out- often in places where it’s completely unnecessary. As such, it landed itself a sweet spot on our Best of 2012 coming in at #6. Do you know where your soy is?
‘Tis the season of holiday soup making and pot luck meals. Meghan shares her latest recipe creation, an easy roast butternut squash and apple bisque with extra richness of coconut milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and maca.
We’ve got a new feature here on the Love in the Kitchen blog- we asked some of our all time fave peeps and superheroes the same five questions and asked for their heartfelt responses. The result? A super sweet glimpse into the inner workings of some of our UnDiet vibrant living rockstars! Do you know Chef Doug McNish? You must – and if you don’t, what rock do you live under?? He is a raw vegan chef and recent author of the AWESOME cookbook Eat Raw, Eat Well. We asked him to play along and he happily obliged. Check out his responses below!
I’m so home. I can barely remember filling my days with hikes, urban exploring and currency conversions. Actually, that’s a lie. I do remember it. I think about it ALL the time. When I’m sitting infront of computer at work, striving to fix my 42-page table content in Word, I remember the joy of watching whales breach in the Pacific, while eating fresh papaya.
It seems like people are a lil’ bit sensitive about their soy products, which we discovered recently when Meghan wrote about her Natural Products Expo adventure. In case you missed it, here’s the gist: foods splashed with lofty health claims are usually not healthy, including faux sausage, turkey and hot dogs, which are almost always made out of soy. Some peeps believe that eating fakin’ bacon is a better choice for personal health, the environment and animal rights. We don’t agree, and here’s why:
Delicious, gluten-free and vegan muffins made with natural sweeteners. You won’t be able to resist them.
Want to try a delicious way to use leftover pulp from juicing? Look no further than this quick, simple and delish pate.
Social situations can be awkward when you’re trying to be healthy. How do you navigate sticky circumstances without offending your loved ones? Find out how to say no to food without appearing like a self-righteous jerk. Plenty of people don’t see food as nourishment – they view it as a vehicle for socializing, spreading the love and bonding with others. But what is the best way to respond to well-meaning friends, family and coworkers when we’re presented with an item that doesn’t jive with our food philosophy or health style? Do you accept the offering and feed it to the family dog, or do you snort with haughty derision? Unless you have Meghan’s wit and charm, the latter will likely land you alone with only your kale chips and goji berries to keep you warm at night.
