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.

Vegan Toast Toppers 6 Ways

By | 2017-02-07T10:13:16+00:00 February 6th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Snacks|

As much as I love bread and toast, I don't eat it often anymore unless it's made with sprouted whole grains or real sourdough (fermented 48 hours or longer), and now I'm going to explain to you why. Grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes are naturally shielded with antinutrients - such as phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors - to protect [...]

By | 2017-01-31T08:22:32+00:00 January 31st, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Drinks/Smoothies, Snacks|

Buckwheat smoothies are one my favorite foods to have for breakfast and when I realized I didn't have a recipe for them on the blog yet, I knew that had to change ASAP! Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, nor is it a cereal grain. But rather a fruit seed related to the [...]

Caraway Buckwheat Bread (V/GF)

I love buckwheat bread thanks to its deep nutty flavor. Unfortunately though, I haven't been able to find a good brand that has a clean list of ingredients without ten lines of additives, preservatives, and different names for sugar! So when I came across this simple recipe by the Healthy Chef, I knew I had to make [...]

If you've been following my Instagram page for a while, you probably know how obsessed I am with green smoothies. That being said, I have to say I'm a big proponent of eating according to seasons.

Nothing says weekend better than a tall stack of warm and fluffy pancakes. Are you with me on that? As much as I love to have pancakes every day, they do take quite some time to prepare, so they are usually a weekend affair at our place. I have been trying to simplify this process, however, [...]
