Orange Spice Olive Oil Cake (GF,V Option)

By | 2017-05-29T15:06:08+00:00 May 8th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

To bake or not to bake? Personally, I prefer "unbaking" (preparing raw/frozen treats) to baking, since I often tend to substitute common ingredients used in baked goods such as all-purpose flour, butter, and sugar with more nutritious alternatives. If you've ever baked before, you know that baking is science and chemistry, which is why you [...]

By | 2017-05-03T18:23:53+00:00 May 3rd, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Desserts, Snacks|

As mentioned in one of my recent posts, I've been trying to add more chia pudding recipes to the blog, simply because they're delicious and fun to whip up, not to mention quick, easy, and nutritious! I have explained some of the health benefits of chia seeds in the aforementioned post. So today, I'll be focusing [...]

Chocolate Cups with Moringa Cashew Cream (V,GF)

By | 2017-04-29T19:23:55+00:00 April 29th, 2017|Categories: Desserts, Snacks|

Dark chocolate cups are one of my favorite go-to's whenever a chocolate craving sets in. This time I decided to boost the nutrient content of this already-nutritious treat by filling the cups with moringa cashew cream. The richness of the dark chocolate is perfectly balanced by the light and fluffy cream nestled inside, yielding an irresistible treat full [...]

Coconut Raspberry Chia Parfait (V,GF)

By | 2017-05-03T11:20:41+00:00 April 23rd, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Desserts, Snacks|

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 [...]

Raspberry Coconut Smoothie Bowl

By | 2017-04-21T21:08:01+00:00 April 8th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Drinks/Smoothies, Snacks|

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 [...]

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 [...]

Persian Herb Frittata (Kookoo Sabzi)

By | 2017-03-23T16:45:55+00:00 March 20th, 2017|Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Main, Snacks|

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. [...]
