New Recipe: Chunky Monkey Flourless Cookies

I love sweets. It’s my one dietary downfall. In order to have (more) treats in my life without feeling guilty I do weird things like sneak protein powder in them. This is sort of a “thing” in the bodybuilding/powerlifting community. Is it something you should start doing? I would say yes! These cookies are magical. Granted they aren’t perfectly shaped or anything, but peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven! I think we can all agree there, am I right?!… Read more

Updated Raw Chocolate Mousse

Things have been so crazy busy with my business but I wanted to say HI and give you an updated version of the mousse I’ve been eating like almost every night. I’ve updated my already delicious raw avocado chocolate mousse that I posted years ago in 2010 by throwing in some protein powder and only sweetening it with dates.

Fruit Salad with Sorrel and Almond Lemon Cream

August Cooking By Color – Red As August comes to a close summer in Texas still burns on. My diet this summer has been high raw, maybe about 50% on most days. I’ve been crazy about fruit. We get beautiful berries at the beginning of summer and then stone fruits like peaches, plums, nectarines, pluots, apricots, and other hybrids start popping up later. When these two types of fruit come together in a fruit salad it’s pretty magical. Wouldn’t you agree?… Read more
