Mocha Nice Cream Shake (Vegan)

Inspired by my recent trip to Italy, I set out to create a healthy affogato-like treat to snack on over the weekend. Affogato, meaning "drowned"  in Italian, is a coffee-based dessert that takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato "drowned" in a shot of hot espresso. Instead of a hot shot of espresso, I made a mocha shake using an instant [...]

Are you getting your 8-10 servings of vegetables and fruits? One of my favorite ways to ensure I'm getting enough veggies is by having smoothies. Fruits, I love to eat on their own. But vegetables I prefer to get them either in smoothies or salads. My favorite go-to's beside greens are frozen cauliflower and zucchini that add [...]

The wait is over! It's finally summer and with hot sunny days come lots of refreshing smoothies and parfaits! I always love to add a layer of chia pudding to parfaits, since these tiny miraculous seeds are one of the best plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids and complete protein. I couldn’t resist adding some greens, so I [...]

Breakfast has got to be my most favorite meal of the day! Not only does a nourishing breakfast set the tone for the rest of your day, but it will also provide your body with the nutrients and energy it needs to thrive and function optimally. When it comes to nutritious breakfast options (that taste ridiculously good [...]

I have to admit as much as I love smoothies and chia pudding, sometimes I get bored and want to try something new for breakfast. Especially with my parents visiting, I wanted to make them something healthy that not only appeals to the eyes, but also to their rather particular taste buds! Since they both love yogurt and [...]

It's perfect for those days when you're on the road or away from your desk/kitchen and not able to snack in the middle of the day. It fills you up for hours thanks to the [...]

I have explained some of the health benefits of chia seeds in the aforementioned post. So today, I'll be focusing [...]

A peek at my Instagram feed will reveal how much I adore chia seeds, especially when mixed with non-dairy milk or yogurt for a decadent chia pudding! However, I realized besides this saffron rosewater chia pudding, this spring detox smoothie/chia parfait, and this blueberry banana chia pudding, I don't have many chia pudding recipes on the [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]
