When I first discovered I was allergic to dairy several years ago, I tried my best to avoid it. I also tried to forget that it existed and soon I had accomplished my dream
What I didn't know was that I would be traveling down this road again.. this time for the sake of my hubby who recently went vegetarian and loves to have a new dish here and there. One of his main requirement though:
" it has to be tasty"
Fair enough! Challenge Accepted.
At a recent poker night, I decided to debut my recipe.... and it was a hit. So I'm sharing it with you below.
When you give it a try, leave a comment below and let me know how you like it.

Any tuna lovers out there?
Tuna took some time to grow on me when I was a meat-eater. I love the texture, but not the smell. And then the whole idea of mercury poisoning was horrendous.
Well, I'm so glad I'm now vegan, cause I no longer have to worry about the smell, the mercury, the taste, or anything else. I can just eat it and be energized.
You can make this recipe in like 5 minutes and inhale it in 5 seconds because it's that's good.
So let's dive in! Shall we
Today I'm sharing a "No FIlter Juice Demo" that has tons of enzymes to aid with your digestion and helps with your constipation. Juice has a way of rehydrating our bodies in multiple ways.
Juicing fruits and vegetables that have a high concentration of water can be very hydrating and it's easy to do on a frequent basis to help your body regain balance.
In this demo, it takes literally less than 10 minutes to make some delicious juice that the whole family can enjoy.
Let's Dive In!
I've never been good at making pancakes. My pancakes have always been wonky shaped and hard, but with the help of my hubby, I finally have a pancake recipe that's semi worthy to share.
With making these repeatedly, this is the best I've come up with, but they were pretty delicious and my non-vegan husband actually loves them.
So here we go:
When I first started transitioning to eating a more whole based plant-based diet, I really thought I was going to make it.... meaning I was going to eat more plant-based, but I wasn't ready to give up my chocolate. Then I discovered vegan chocolate
I love chocolate, I've always loved chocolate. Growing up we used to make our own, but that was a lot slower pace of life and today, I want to grab my chocolate or a chocolate treat in a few minutes.
Can you relate?
So here is a recipe that will take you literally 5 minutes to make. Very delicious, you can use these for party favors, kids treats, snacks, or desserts WITHOUT guilt.
So recently I shared some juices on my Facebook page and someone didn't get the same results as me... so I was inspired to create a video for the behind the scenes to help you spruce up your juice a bit so you can get the same experience.
Because guess what, she called me out on it, but so many others may have had the same reaction and I want to help you make the transition to juicing fun. Food should always be fun.
So let's dive in!
Every once in a while, it's good to sit down with a glass of warm ginger tea and a stack of warm brownies.
Have you been there? Maybe you like milk? That's good too. Some warm almond milk with honey or maple syrup is delicious.
So I'm sharing a recipe with you today that's easy, fun to make and delicious. Better yet, it works for any occasion or no special occasion at all.
Here we go:
I love breakfast. And I used to love eggs. But when I discovered what it does to the body, I knew I had to make a change. Still, this was easier said than done. Honestly, it was a process to move through this and the first time I made this dish, I wasn't sure how it would turn out. Since I did, this has been a Saturday morning special that I can run to easily.
If you are new to eating vegan, I highly recommend you add some nutritional yeast to this dish. Personally, I think it tastes great on day one, but taste best on days 2 and 3 when the seasons to marinate a bit.
Beets and I go way back! Every Sunday in my native country of Jamaica, we would drink beet and carrot juice mixed with condensed milk and nutmeg! It was like a ritual or at least it felt like it.
As soon as I became an adult, I no longer even tasted much less drink beets. I rarely ate carrots until I found out that I was allergic to dairy.
I wasn't just allergic to dairy, but wheat, corn and a bunch of other stuff that were now the main staples in my diet.
Fast forward and one day after I first because a raw vegan, I drank a-lot of beets and discovered that my poop was red.
It totally freaked me out as I had no idea a veggie could be that powerful and so quickly.
Then I had my first baby via C-section and needed to get the saline out of my blood in a hurry... The doctors told me the anesthesia would make me constipated, so I thought to myself,
"Thanks for the heads up, but no thank you"
I came home and started juicing!
