I did this smoothie line-up for a presentation and received great feedback for it. Not all of them are for everyone but I’m sure you’ll find your favorite (mine are the avocado & mint and the spicy mango smoothie). Try ’em all!
This flourless cake doesn’t need baking, is vegan and so delicious that you’ll want to eat the whole thing at once. It takes some time to prepare, though.

Coming home from an intense workout, I am craving for something that refuels my energy and nutrient stores. This smoothie is the best after-workout superfood drink there is. But that’s just me.
Vegan. Raw. No bake recipe with cashew cream cheese, fresh lemon and lime juice on a pistachio-date crust topped with fresh mango. Delicious!

This salad recipe is so delicious I made it three times in a row. Pureeing an avocado with lime juice and jalapeno was the best idea I’ve ever seen for a salad dressing – you have to try it!

This easy dish is perfect for weeknight eats. It gives you at least 2 servings out of your 5-a-day making sure you’re getting all the vitamins and minerals to stay fit. Use up any vegetables in your fridge – almost anything works for this dish.
This elegant member of the cabbage family comes in white, green and also purple (who would have thought?). Cauliflower is a nutritious vegetable as it is a good source of vitamin C and has a fair amount of iron. You can eat it raw or cooked–I prefer to quickly steam it to make it more digestible and keep its delicate flavor, crunchy consistency and bright color. I find that cauliflower is the perfect ingredient to make almost any dish a little lighter and healthier–like in this light gnocchi recipe.
