Yummy Homemade Nut Milk

April 23, 2014

When I gave up dairy a few years ago,  I went on a mission to find a healthy substitute to the creamy cow’s milk I was so used to having with my coffee each morning.

I experimented with nut milk I bought at the health food store, but that tasted processed, unnaturally sweet and very watery to me — not at all what I was looking for. I decided to try and make my own instead.

Sylvia’s Favorite Avocado Smoothie

April 14, 2014

I’m totally obsessed with this smoothie! I kid you not, I can’t stop drinking it. It’s simply AMAZING.

I love avocados. I know many people try to stay away from these yummy guys thinking that they are high in fat. Honestly, I have been eating at least one whole avocado each day for the past year and have not gained a single pound…well, not from avos anyway :-)

Sweet Berry Homemade Granola

March 13, 2014

Freshly baked granola is one of those comfort snack foods I always have around. For real.

I like this particular recipe so much that I made a huge batch of it last year, stuffed it into pretty jars, and gave it to my friends for Christmas! It was one of the best gifts I’ve given, because it is delicious, made with pure, natural ingredients and lots of love, of course :-)
