Broccoli Fried Rice

By | 2017-04-18T11:41:03+00:00 April 18th, 2017|Categories: Main|Tags: , , , |

I am so excited to bring you this broccoli fried rice recipe today for so many reasons! First, I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of broccoli. I can't stand how it tastes when raw, especially when added to salads (mom, for the 100th time, please don't add broccoli to my salad!) :D So the fact that [...]

Raspberry Coconut Smoothie Bowl

Spring is finally here in our corner of the world! The days are longer, the weather is warmer, and it's time to bring back the smoothie game! If you've been with me for a while, you know that I'm a big proponent of eating with the seasons. That is, lots of cooked or baked foods like [...]

Homemade Sesame Milk + Sesame Fig Bliss Balls

By | 2017-04-04T08:05:08+00:00 April 3rd, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Drinks/Smoothies, Snacks|

Have you ever tried making homemade nut or seed milk? If you do, I am pretty sure you will never ever go back to those store-bought cartons! I used to think that making my own nut/seed milk would be quite a time-consuming process. Boy, was I wrong! The only issue there is that you need to [...]

Blueberry Lemon Ice Cream Cake (V,GF)

By | 2017-04-01T22:41:25+00:00 April 1st, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

I made this raw, vegan, and gluten-free ice cream cake a while back and totally forgot about posting the recipe! For some reason, at the time I made it, all I could think about in terms of colors were yellow and purple! Not sure if you're also like me where each of your days has [...]

Mushroom Quinoa “Risotto” with Pumpkin Cream (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-31T13:32:39+00:00 March 31st, 2017|Categories: Main|

If you love quinoa and mushrooms, then this recipe is for you! It's such a lovely--and of course healthy--twist on the traditional risotto by substituting arborio rice with quinoa. Quinoa is one of the most nutrient-rich foods out there. While it can be eaten in the same way as grains, it serves as a complete protein source and has [...]

No-Bake Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-25T08:31:12+00:00 March 25th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Soft, chewy, zesty, with a hint of orange and chunks of dark chocolate. That's how these no-bake cookies taste in a nutshell. Baking is not my favorite thing to do. It's rather difficult for me to stick to the exact ingredients and measurements since I tend to play around with recipes all the time. That's [...]

Monday, March 20th, marked the first day of spring and Persian new year! In Persian culture, we have beautiful meaningful traditions to celebrate new year and the arrival of spring, a time of rebirth and rejuvenation. We prepare a cute spread called "Haft-Seen", meaning seven-'S', that consists of seven items starting with the letter 'S' in Farsi. [...]

Healthy Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-14T09:49:25+00:00 March 14th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Soft, chewy, decadent... but best of all healthy. That's how I would describe these little bites of heaven that are guaranteed to satisfy the strongest chocolate cravings! Chocolate cravings often stem from hormonal imbalances and deficiency in magnesium. Raw cacao is one of the top 10 sources of magnesium and is also high in disease-fighting antioxidants. [...]

Peanut Butter & Jelly Fudge Bites (V,GF)

By | 2017-03-07T10:46:33+00:00 March 7th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Peanut butter and jelly... A magical combo that reminds most people of their childhood. Not me! I didn't grow up with it. In fact, I think I was in my early teenage years when I first tried peanut butter and I didn't like it at all! My sister brought me a jar as a souvenir from [...]
