Chocolate Avocado Pudding (with a bonus superfood ingredient!)

December 9, 2012

I made chocolate avocado pudding this weekend (again). I’ve always loved this stuff, and it’s quite a fun game to spring it on people who (a) don’t like avocados or (b) don’t know what the ingredients are. I’ve never had anyone guess that the main ingredient is avocado, and the only people who don’t like [...]

Cause and Effect – Avocados for Your Skin

September 25, 2010

Last week, I noticed that my skin was really dry and itchy, sorry I know you don’t need to know that. But it was annoying—and I’m not interested in putting lotions on my skin because when I do I hear this little voice in my head saying, “You shouldn’t put anything on your skin that [...]

Why Can’t You Just Be Normal?

August 6, 2010

Has anyone ever asked you that question?  No one has asked me that in a while, but I’ll admit that it has happened in the past.

June 23, 2010

From my grocery supplies, I used part of the avocado for guacamole (chips were made out of the sprouted grain tortillas), and I used the rest for chocolate pudding. I’m not great at following recipes for things like pudding…so I’ll just link you to Gena’s recipe because I know that one is good.

Chocolate Coconut Chia Smoothie (Pudding?)

February 17, 2010

Today I wanted a combination recovery plus energy boost smoothie.  Unfortunately (or fortunately?) it turned out more like a pudding. Here’s the recipe: 1 3/4 cups coconut milk 1/2 scoop Vega powder (chocolate flavor) 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder 1 Tbsp vanilla extract 1/4 cup chia seeds 2-3 Tbsp agave 1 Tbsp maca powder I [...]

Did you ever have a Chia Pet? My bro-in-law (before he was my bro-in-law) gave one to me for Christmas one year. It was a weird concept—spread seed goo over a ceramic animal (not sure what kind of animal), and then let it sprout and grow. Result: pointless, weird-looking, primarily non-functional clutter–sort of a plant! [...]
