Weekend in Ocala

photo5

This past weekend my sweeti and I decided to take a road trip up to Ocala to visit my mama. It's not too bad of a drive for us, and only takes about 1 1/2 hr. from Tampa. We knew that tropical storm Isaac was on its way, but we guessed that as long as we made it back by Sunday evening we would be okay, since the storm was predicted to pass the Sarasota and then Tampa area on Monday morning. (And the joke of the matter is that as I sit typing this on Monday afternoon there is nothing more than a … [Read more...]

Sesame Ginger Cabbage Slaw

This coleslaw is mostly raw, packed full of delicious cancer-fighting nutrients, fiber and protein-packed edamame. It has an orange juice, ginger and vinaigrette dressing that leaves it low-fat and low calorie. It's also gluten free and mostly raw. This recipe is amazing. I sort of threw everything together one afternoon for a refreshing low-fat coleslaw, and I discovered it to be even better tasting after marinating in the fridge overnight. Enjoy!

Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

RipeBananas-1-copy

I am a huge fan of bananas. It's safe to say I enjoy a banana or two every day. Whether it's for a quick on-the-go snack, added to smoothies, smothered in nut butter, whipped up in the food processor for banana soft serve, added to chia pudding, or snuck into baked goods... I'll put a lil nana in just about anything! But I'm kinda weird when it comes to bananas. I do not enjoy them very ripe. In fact, I prefer them with a lil green around the edges, and absolutely no brown spots! blah! But … [Read more...]
