And so it begins…my obsession with pumpkin, spices and all things fall related! Although I live on the beach, I’m secretly waiting for fires in our fireplace, scarves, ugg’s and hot steaming beverages…are you with me?! Those things aside, the number one item that keeps coming to my mind is pumpkin. Like, everything pumpkin!! For […]
Weight-Loss Special Epic Finale by Markus Rothkranz Yes, I’m a fan. I have to say that I really love the results both Markus and his girlfriend, Cara Brotman, have achieved in their bodies by following the program he prescribes. They are both about my age…right around 50ish. And honestly, they look AMAZING! In the video […]
ARE “RAW” ALMONDS REALLY A SAFE NUT FOR HUMANS TO EAT? I love nuts, pretty much any kind of nut. But of all the nuts out there, if I had to choose just one to satisfy my taste buds, as well as fill all of the diverse roles I’ve become accustomed to filling with these […]

I have been watching Freelee and DurianRider for several years now and while I don’t always fully agree with their views I have to say that I am completely with her in her response to this ridiculous comment she received from a recent viewer. **WARNING: The following footage is graphic but so convincing that I […]
This is a post I have been needing to write for a very long time now. But the thought of it gives me so much pain that I have been procrastinating like crazy! And I’ve basically been in hiding. If you have been paying any attention at all, you’ve noticed that I have not been […]
Yes, I love you guys! And those of you who know me know that I love giving hugs…and maybe even the occasional peck on the cheek…for that super special friend 😉 But the title of this post isn’t referring to a physical show of affection. It is an acronym for Keep It Simple Sweetheart! And […]
Inspiration comes from many people and places always! Lately Facebook has been my haven of collecting and sharing thought provoking and inspirational information. A short time ago, I came across a link for an article called, “7 Reasons Kale is the new beef”. Just this week, deeply engrossed in conversation about putting kale into the diet, I was inspired by a couple of friends to create this Kale rich and versatile recipe… for anyone who may be struggling with creative Vegan dishes, or just making tasty options that even the most stubborn flesh eaters can enjoy this is for YOU!

Since Mother’s Day is in May, I decided to create this recipe in honor of her. She loves Indian curry food, although is not a fan of spice, so this is a mild dish. You can add as much or as little spice as you choose. Despite the fact that the recipe looks long, it’s really simple. A zap in the food processor, a quick mix in the blender, and a bit of chopping here and there. Allow at least 2 hours for the eggplant to sit in the dehydrator, but for best results, about 4-6 hours. Enjoy!

Happy Earth Day!!! For my raw dessert submission I made a Chocolate-Mint cheesecake, the chocolate resembling “dirt” and the Mint resembling “grass”. The food coloring I used to dye the mint topping green with is actually liquid mint-flavored chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is our #1 source of oxygen. Without oxygen, humans could not exist. So what better way to say “Happy Birthday” to Mother Earth than with a chlorophyll-rich cake?

This is Chef Adam Graham with a nostalgic smoothie inspired by fond memories from my youth. March is the time of year that the Shamrock Shake makes its appearance on billboards around the country. No longer do I cue up at the Un-Happy Meal trough to stuff my belly with industrial waste (watch the video). That’s not to say that I don’t miss drinking a Shamrock Shake… I do.
Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables, and it was abundant at the farmers’ market today. So, I picked up a big, beautiful head to whip up my mash for dinner. Cauliflower comes in white, green, and purple varieties, and works wonderfully processed into a mash. This is my version of mashed potatoes. Cauliflower has a kick to it, which I love.
