Mayan Chocolate Chia Pudding

Anyone remember my Mayan Chocolate Ice Cream? I sure do. It was incredible. So I figured the same yum-factor would apply to chia pudding. SPOILER ALERT: I was right. Mix this up any ol’ day for a quick snack or breakfast item. Serve with fruit or your favorite parfait toppers like shredded coconut, hemp seeds, cacao…

Lemony Greek Quinoa Salad

I don’t typically post a lot of grain-friendly recipes on this site, but I choose to include a few because I always want to support clean, nutritious, whole-food eating regardless of our respective “diets”.

BUT… If you know anything about my nutritional journey, you know that I have some digestive issues….

Dark Chocolate and Fig Acai Bowl

Right now I have an incredible view of East Village, the Coronado Bridge and a fancy new skyscraper as it nears completion. San Diego, you have my heart. This view almost makes me forget how long I circled around the streets looking for parking during this incredibly busy weekend in San Diego. The world-famous Comic…

Strawberry Quinoa Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

NOT PALEO ALERT! This salad is probably closer to being PEGAN than Paleo. If you haven’t heard, Pegan is the new darling of the diet world. It’s a combination of our two favorite “extreme” diets out there; Paleo and Vegan. Um, what? I’ve always said that paleo and veganism are more alike than dissimilar. I guess…
