It’s been a while since we posted a recipe on our blog, but we’re back! This time with a delicious home made granola recipe, which is much better than any store bought granola that often contains added sugar, palm oil and non-gluten free grains. Once the granola is pre-prepared, it is very quick breakfast you can put in a jar and take with you to work or as a post-workout snack. In our jars, we’ve paired the homemade granola with apple compote and yoghurt, but you can get creative with just about any fruit! This time of year pears are some of our favorites, for instance.

It’s been a few weeks since we posted our last recipe and with the first day of school around the corner, we wanted to give you some ideas to start the year on a healthy and happy note.
So have you heard of the old wives’ tale that you should eat your colors? Then you’ll love these green pancakes!
Pancakes are traditionally thought of as an unhealthy breakfast, but these are actually gluten free, sugar free, dairy free and paleo. In addition, they are great way to get spinach into what is otherwise a “treat” type meal especially for kids. (more…)

In an earlier blog post, we discussed the difference between cacao and cocoa. In case you missed it, check it out here in our mint cacao bliss balls recipe. In short, if you can, choose cacao over cocoa because it is made by cold-pressing un-roasted beans meaning Read More
If your kids are anything like ours, they’re always asking for muffins, but it’s not easy choosing a healthy recipe that they’ll still like.
Today’s apricot muffins are made with almond and coconut flour making them far more nutritious, but without compromising on taste. Win for mom and dad, win for the kids!
Instead of muffins, you could also bake this as a sweet loaf and enjoy with butter and jam in the morning. Either way, we’re sure you’re going to love it!
Our recipe journey continues today with a salad you can easily take to work with you or enjoy in the evening with grilled meats! This salad is called Gavurdagi, which is a traditional Turkish salad similar to Tabbouleh, however, the pomegranate and walnuts add amazing new flavor to it.
We hope you all have a fantastically fruitful week ahead. We have a few more recipes to share in our series of 7 so stay tuned Read More
It’s the weekend so little indulgences are definitely allowed. Afterall, life is about balance.
Today’s recipe is for homemade nut butter cups. Step aside Reese’s peanut butter cups, we have a healthier version for you! By making it yourself, it will leave you more satiated as you can add in healthy fats such as coconut oil and peanut butter. Instead of 5 nut butter cups, you’ll only feel the need to grab 1 of these babies!

We promised you 7 recipes in 7 days and we think you’ll love this 2nd one! Desserts are a weak spot for many of us, but they don’t have to be a guilty indulgence. If you plan ahead, you can actually fill your desserts with whole foods that will enrich you in some way.
Our Raw Vegan Lime & Cherry Tart is inspired by LA’s well-known vegan Cafe Gratitude. What makes it different than a typical vegan cheesecake is that the crust is made primarly with fresh grated coconut rather than nuts. There are also NO filler ingredients like potato starch, thickeners like guar gum or alcohol sweeteners that are Read More

First up is a homemade granola bar! Most supermarket granola bars contain sugar, corn syrup, wheat or canola oil and by making it yourself you know exactly what is going inside. These apricot and orange granola bars are perfect to take to work or if your kids Read More
Football fever is everywhere and there’s definitely some competition in our office! How about yours?
As much fun as 3 football games a day are, it also inevitably means A LOT of snacking. That’s why we thought that for today’s recipe we would encourage you to stay on your top game with a great healthy snack alternative that is both sweet and savory.
Roll on dehydrated apples with dark chocolate and sea salt! They’re as easy to grab and snack on as chips, but without all the nasties added. Now back to football… we all know Germany is going to win, right?! Only comment if you agree… we’re kidding mostly! (more…)
