    A nice big salad does the body good. Not to mention, it's filling but can still keep you feeling light and ready to tackle your next task at hand. But, there's more to vegetables than just salad. A trend that has been circulating for awhile, and gaining more popularity by the minute, is the idea of going "raw until dinner." This is a great way to include more whole fresh foods into the diet. Plus, it's super simple to pull off and can serve as the transitioning phase for those of you who wish to become completely raw vegans. You may even discover a few advantages along your journey. Check out this list! Health (and other) benefits of going raw:

    • Increased energy
    • Better regularity and improved digestion
    • Clear skin
    • Post-meal feelings of fullness and satisfaction without feeling overstuffed and bloated
    • Less packaging-- the environment thanks you for having less trash! Read this article on composting to learn more

  • 7 Healthy Alcohol-Infused Desserts and Drinks for Labor Day

    1. Margarita Ice Cream
    Get the recipe HERE or click on the image below.

    Skip the usual chocolate and vanilla this time and opt for an unforgettable treat: margarita ice cream! This drink-inspired dessert is served in a salt rimmed glass and garnished with a slice of lime for the full sweet, salty, and tart experience of the cocktail. Since alcohol and salt are the two main ingredients in a margarita and also happen to melt ice cream, orange extract is used instead of triple sec so the tequila, flavor, and creaminess needn't be diluted.

    Think of gazpacho: cool and refreshing, with spicy undertones, now put that idea into liquid form, minus the vegetables of course. With infused tequila, this version gets an extra-tasty kick.

  • 10 Juicy Fruity Vegan Desserts for the Summer

    1. Double Layer Pineapple Upside Down Cake
    The caramelized brown sugar that coats the top compliments the tangy pineapple slices, as if they were made for each other. This cake is moist and dense, meaning that you can make it 2-3 days ahead of time and it will hold its texture perfectly. Get the recipe HERE or click on the image below.


    2. Strawberry Shortcakes with a Coconut Whipped Cream Topping

    This recipe is pretty quick to put together and a lot of fun to eat, because it is a little messy. You can try serving these shortcakes with a spork and knife, but they should be considered finger food. If it's too hot outside to bake the biscuits, serving the whipped cream and berries as dessert ain't half bad either. And just a little word of warning: these shortcakes may look cute and innocent, but they're addictive. Get the recipe HERE or click on the image below.

    Cinnamon Raisin Almond Cookie

    This is a very light cookie to please the senses. Think almond butter, coconut cinnamon-y raisin soft and crumbly cookie in yo mouth. Hell yeah. If you don't eat the whole batch, I would consider these a fairly healthy cookie.
