Classic Green Smoothie

Smoothies are always satisfying and (usually) extremely healthy. What makes the unhealthy ones so unhealthy? They’re often fruit-based and loaded with unnatural sugars and preservatives. Where do vegetables fall into the equation? Should we be scared to mix them in with their sweeter cousins? I say no! This green smoothie features a blend of kale, spinach, cucumbers and celery, combined with some of our favorite fruits to create a healthy, veggie-packed and nutrient-rich glass of satisfying goodness. Need we say more? […]

Salt and Pepper Almond Crackers

Did you know that making homemade crackers is super easy? They also taste way better than store-bought crackers because you can control the flavors and amount of salt, and there are no preservatives or artificial ingredients. These crunchy almond crackers are gluten-free and only require a few ingredients to make. You can use almonds straight from the bag, or use the almond pulp leftover after making almond milk. I like to sprinkle coarse ground salt and pepper on the top just […]

Vegan Squash and Kale Tacos with Cashew “Crema”

This meal is delicious and both vegan and gluten-free. I mean, come on: that’s a food trend trifecta. Despite containing no animal products and no gluten, these tacos are truly satisfying. The Magic Bullet does a great job of faking out Mexican crema (like sour cream, only a bit runnier); the cashews blend up into a nice, creamy white sauce, and the lime provides that classic sour tang. I got the idea for this recipe from the cookbook Tacolicious, via Serious […]

A dash of lemon juice and optional EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) round out the recipe for an amazingly fresh and seasonal meal. Allergen Information: Free of dairy, egg, corn, soy, and nut. Can […]

Because we like him. So, well, you probably don’t know him. But, let me tell you about him: he gave me this recipe. It was delicious. And deliciously easy.
