  • A Flurry of Inspiration
    Winter is in full force, or at least, so I’m told. Forecasts filled with snow and ice threaten large swaths of the US, while records show that this year’s Superbowl was the coldest on record, crushing previous predictions with an icy flourish. Temperatures ranking just above negative numbers boggle my mind; a sensation so unthinkable, so impossible, it’s almost painful to imagine. That’s because beautiful California remains a shining beacon of eternal summer, setting records pushing the mercury up in the opposite direction. Basking in the sunshine on a brilliant 75-degree day, I have to remind myself that this is still February. Somehow, this is still winter. Although that does make it less appealing to crank up the oven, those longer days of bright natural light inspire an endless stream of photo shoots, and with them, new recipes galore. In homage to the flurries still blanketing the rest of the northern hemisphere with frozen white fluff, my mind when to memories of clean, pure, white snow, freshly fallen and immaculate. So delicate were those perfectly formed crystals, which I examined closely on gloved hands as they landed, that they seemed as if they were formed individually by some master craftsman in the sky. These particular snowflakes are cut from the same cloth, but as a handmade treat, still retain personalities all their own. ... read more

  • Vanilla Cashew Vegan Yogurt (soy-free, gluten-free)
    We’ve been in a breakfast rut lately interchanging whole-grain waffles with oatmeal, always paired with green smoothies. It’s morning. Simple routines needed! When I do break out of the waffle/oatmeal breakfast rotation, the girls are stoked! Okay, they are most stoked when it’s pancakes. But, also pretty happy to see a beautiful breakfast parfait like this… These vegan yogurt parfaits are an especially easy and fast breakfast treat. They look so elegant but really quite simple to make! You can prepare the vegan yogurt the day before, and then layer your favorite fruits into parfaits the next morning. Put them in special cups or parfait glasses and the kiddos think it’s very fancy. (My wee girl said “this is the best day ever“!) 😊 The parfaits start with Vanilla Cashew Yogurt. When I wrote LTEV I used storebought vegan yogurts in several of the recipes – the Creamed Cheese Brownies, the Gluten-Free Chocolate Yogurt Cake, and the Banana Butter Pie (I have GOT to get that recipe and photos up for you)! I went a little overboard offering allergy-friendly and storebought substitutions with LTEV, so I decided to include a homemade vegan yogurt recipe. This Vanilla Yogurt is not exactly like storebought brands. It’s not cultured with probiotics. What it does offer is the characteristic tang and texture of a plain or vanilla non-dairy ... read more

  • Vegan Mushroom Paella
    This vegan paella is made with tender saffron-infused rice, veggies, and mix of savory mushrooms. Paella is pronounced “pie-ay-ah.” I just learned that recently. In fact, I’d been going around thinking it was pronounced pay-ella and that “pie-ay-ah” was a completely different thing. No really, like, I’d see these pictures or paella on Pinterest and think, “Oh look at that lovely rice dish. I should make a vegan version of that.” And then people would talk to me about how much they loved “pie-ay-ah,” and I’d think it was some pie thing. I knew it was spanish and involved seafood, but not much else. I think I tuned out after the seafood part. Anyway, my brother was telling me about the awesome mushroom “pie-ay-ah” at a vegetarian restaurant he visited, and I was all, “Oh, do tell! A big Spanish mushroom pie thingy? Vegan? That sounds awesome!” Okay, so did you follow all that? They’re really just one dish and it’s Spanish and involves rice and, traditionally, seafood. No pie. That’s okay! Pie has it’s place, but it’s not everything. There’s room for rice in my heart too. So I eventually visited the vegetarian place and had a taste of their vegan paella and decided to copy them. Mushrooms are the perfect stand-in for seafood here. (1) They have the ideal texture. ... read more

  • Weekend Reading, 2.11.18
    In February, it’s not unusual for yoga classes and studios to place an emphasis on the 4th chakra, or anahata chakra. My studio is no exception, and even if Valentine’s Day weren’t around the corner, the heart chakra would be on my mind.I’m going to try not to quote from Melody Beattie’s Journey to the Heart (which I mentioned last week) every single Sunday, since I don’t want to spoil its surprises for those who haven’t read it. But I was moved enough by a recent affirmation that I can’t help but share. The day is February 9th, and the entry is titled “Keep Your Heart Open”:“Keep your heart open,” Beattie writes, “even when you can’t have what you want.”She goes on to say:It’s easy to keep our heart open to life’s magic and all of its possibilities when we have what we want. It’s more of a challenge, and more necessary than ever, to keep our hearts open when we can’t have what we want.Even on the best journey, things happen. Plans change. Things shift and move around. This shifting and moving causes doors to close, relationships to end, blocks and frustrations to appear on our path…Keep your heart open anyway. Consciously choose to do that. Yes, you can go away, you can leave, you can shut down, but you don’t need to. Now is ... read more

    I have shared many a recipe for chocolate on this blog and in my cookbooks before. My original recipe remains one of my most popular (even though I look at the pics now and cringe... those were EARLY DAYS, okay??) But as the years have gone by, my tastes have evolved. I prefer my food less sweet now, it allows me to better taste the flavours of the other ingredients. And you know I am all about nutritional density, so while sweeteners do give me that mini dopamine rush, they don't provide much else. I would never tell anyone else to consume less sweeteners because your body is yours, and what you do with it is none of my business (THIS IS A FAT-POSITIVE SPACE)! But speaking solely for myself, I would rather leave out sweeteners in most of my food so I can get more nutritious foods in, and more flavour. Chocolate is a perfect vehicle to do this with. CONTINUE READING... ... read more

  • Homemade Chocolate Raspberry Hearts
    Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so I wanted to share this Homemade Chocolate Raspberry Heart recipe with you. I eat chocolate pretty much every day of the year, but these little candies are so easy to make and can be a little sweet treat for your special someone next week. This is a recipe I shared last year, but I wanted to highlight it since it’s so fun, easy, and yummy. 🙂 You only need a couple of bars of your favorite chocolate for this recipe (I used this brand), along with some raspberry flavor and a mold to form the candies. I used a heart-shaped silicone mold I got off Amazon, and you can buy the raspberry flavor there too. To make this recipe, you simply melt your bars with the raspberry flavor, and pour the mixture into your molds. You can even be super messy like me! After 30 minutes in the freezer to set, you have homemade chocolate hearts with the lovely flavor of raspberry: Here’s my printable recipe: Print Homemade Chocolate Raspberry Hearts Author: Carrie Forrest, MPH in Nutrition Prep Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 30 mins Total Time: 40 minutes Yield: 2 dozen Category: Dessert Cuisine: Vegan, Paleo Print Recipe Pin Recipe Description Valentine’s Day is quickly ... read more

  • 40 Vegan Valentine’s Day Desserts
    Desserts are an essential part of Valentine's Day as far as I am concerned.  My first good memories of the holiday were of bringing goodies and cute little cards to school to exchange with classmates, and Grandma giving me heart shaped boxes of chocolates.  I was all about the chocolate, conversation hearts were cute, but were more suited for decorating things.  In high school a few years in a row I baked sugar cookies to share with others and they were always well received along with the chocolates.  And ever since then I have always made something to celebrate the holiday.  Although now it is usually lots of chocolates (Eric loves chocolate and sharing some is tradition) and some sort of cake, because that is my favorite.  Over the past few years I have accumulated loads of Valentine's day worthy desserts to share with you all, because any excuse to make anything chocolate, or pink, or with hearts and I am on it.  I am a total girly girl when it comes to that stuff.  I mean, if there were a natural non-refined way to add sparkles I would do that too...but I stick to the color for now.  Anyways, I have gathered together some of my favorite Valentine's Day worthy recipes so that you don't have to search hard for that special dessert.  As you ... read more
