Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

This year I made my own birthday cake. How else are you supposed to get exactly the cake you want if you don’t make it yourself? Having returned from Puerto Rico that week, I wanted to keep up with the vegan deliciousness. Also, after eating so many whole foods and no processed sugar, cake and … Continue reading Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie


Chai Spiced Almond Butter

Happy Easter weekend! I finally had some time to get back in the kitchen today and baked through all the top recipes on my to-do list, and then some.

If I had found it a year and three months ago, maybe even close to one thousand. Unfortunately, that’s not much of an exaggeration. Like many endurance athletes, I … Continue reading Chocolate Almond Clif Bars

Oats are great sources of whole grains and fiber in the morning, but if you add too much sugar and oil, that no longer matters … Continue reading Maple Almond Granola
