Raw Vegan Carrot Cake

I was going to skip posting it all together, but then I decided that it would be better for me to keep it real by talking about my kitchen mistakes. This very morning, I was chuckling because…

Asian Tofu Scramble

Recently, I found a local Korean market that has incredible fresh tofu. I’m not in the habit of getting misty-eyed over tofu, but this stuff is amazing. Typically, the flavour of tofu is drowned out with sauces and marinades. I wanted to make an easy meal that would celebrate this tofu without completely obliterating the…

Midnight Espresso Smoothie – Vegan

My bananas are all green. If you ask me, green bananas do not belong in a smoothie. So, this smoothie is banana-less.  This is perfect for that mid-day chocolate craving. It also has a little hit of espresso to perk you up. I put a little coconut whipped cream and chocolate chips on top to…

If you suffer from trypophobia, you are going to want to stay away from this post. If you don’t know what trypophobia is, you probably shouldn’t google it because it will ruin your day. Essentially, it’s the fear of things with irregular holes. The wikipedia page is pretty safe (no images) if you are curious….

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Smoothie

I was going to make a super standard  peanut butter banana smoothie, but then I discovered some leftover chocolate chips next to the peanut butter in the pantry. Don’t ask me how chocolate chips survived in my cupboard for more than 10 minutes. I consider this a good omen of the year to come. The chocolate…
