Chocholistic Truffles

March 26, 2012

Today, I have a review to share with you. Over the last 7 years, since I read the book, Naked Chocolate, I have been a great fan of all (unprocessed) things cacao/cocoa. Like most people, I spent most of my life believing that chocolate was an indulgent dessert. It wasn’t until I learned about the [...]

Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Cups – So Healthy You Can Eat Them for Breakfast!

March 22, 2012

It’s almost Easter, and truthfully, I don’t crave or want regular old Easter candy at all. In fact, you couldn’t pay me to eat it—because I have so many things I can make myself that taste better (to me) and don’t have all the junk and sugar in them! Besides, I’m kind of craving cheese [...]

Dark Chocolate “Oreo” Granola w/ Peanut Butter — Perfect for Greek Yogurt or Ice Cream Topping!

March 15, 2012

I’ve been trying to think of a way to make cereal that doesn’t involve any grains. Or much sugar. And really, this kind of stumped me because low-sugar and no-grain cereal doesn’t sound very good (can it even be called cereal?). Today I came up with a cross between granola and cereal…and it was chocolate [...]

Challenges. AKA Opportunities… And Parfait.

March 3, 2012

Last night, I attended a benefit workshop called Pursuit of Happiness with Kurt Johnsen. He’s the founder of American Power Yoga, and has done a lot of work/learning in things like energy balance, tai chi, kung fu…and even astral travel (which sounds wonderful to me!). I enjoyed the two-hour talk very much, and identified with [...]

Chocolate Coconut Cream Mousse (grain/gluten free and dairy free)

February 24, 2012

I’ve tried twice to convert my vanilla coconut cream and cherry berry coconut cream recipes into a chocolate version. The first attempt…was awful. Not sweet enough. Too much cocoa. But it had a great texture, so I knew there was hope! The second time… it was amazing (and then I replicated that version just to [...]

Jiggle Tea Smoothie, Lighting, and Moving!

July 7, 2011

This week flew by, didn’t it?! Since I’m working mostly from home all summer, distinguishing between weekdays and the weekend really doesn’t matter too much—except that more people are around me on the weekends, so I get less work done (a-Ok with me!). I’m still grinning at my garden pics—and there will be more to [...]

Superfood Brunch with My Mini-Me!

March 19, 2011

Wait till you see what we invented! ¬†They’re called Bressert Chips! I thought this week on my semi-spring break that I would have time to relax toward the end of the week. What actually happened is that I’m left wondering how I would have gotten my work done if I was not on break from [...]

Eat Dessert….Only

July 23, 2010

One weekend when I was (probably) in middle school, my mom and I were going to be spending the evening alone together, and we decided our theme for the night would be “Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.” I have no idea what we ate for dessert, and I’m pretty sure we had dessert, dinner, [...]
