Vega-fied Coconut Energy Truffles

Finding healthy alternatives to snacking and killing sweet cravings has become my passion.  By settling into a meal program that has significantly reduced processed sugars, I have found that traditional commercial snacks and treats are often sickly sweet in taste.  Even in just a short period time, one can…

I recently replanted my annual herb pot with an ambitious variety of green edibles. The future was bright: fresh, pungent natural flavorings happily flourishing outside my back door, romantically waiting for their next role in an illustrious whim of kitchen-oriented inspiration.

At least that was the plan.



The slugs ate the dill, the oregano never grew, the cilantro disappeared (in all seriousness… where did it go?), and we’ll just… Continue
