IMG_0119 Today's recipe is full of highly nutritious ingredients and makes an excellent snack anytime you need a hit of energy. The squares are great on their own but they're taken to a new level when covered in a soft fudgey chocolate coating. Mmm! Since the chocolate softens quickly, they need to be kept ...

This cake is really rich and quite intensive to play around with while making it, but the end product is worth it! This uses a smaller spring form to save on cost and time. You really only need a small slice anyways to satisfy, however that didn't stop my roommate from eating half of it for breakfas...

I absolutely love this dessert. So many raw desserts try to mimic their non-raw butter and sugar based counterparts (raw brownies, raw cakes, etc). This one is a true celebration of it's exquisite Superfood ingredients and not trying to be anything other than it's glorious self...who knew a dessert ...

Yes, it's time for a savory recipe folks. Even a pastry chef can't eat dessert all of the time ;) This salad is definitely a meal (no iceberg side salad here) and has so many benefits, you may just want to eat it every day. I think of kale as the Superstar of greens. It's rich in vitamins, minerals,...

Hi. My name is Michelle and I'm a macaholic. Most people who know me are aware of my love for cacao but few know that I'm equally enthusiastic about maca. I have it pretty much everyday. I love the malty, earthy taste, not to mention the way it makes me feel. It calms me down if I'm feeling anxious...

I was so excited about the return of our coconut flakes that I just had to make some macaroons...And the coolest thing about this recipe (aside from the sinfully delicious taste) is that it doesn't require a dehydrator! Most macaroon recipes require dehydrating for anywhere from 8-12 hours but thes...

Can you believe it's holiday time already? Thanksgiving has passed (I hope you had a great one!) and December is right around the corner. The holidays can mean a lot of different things to different people- joy, comfort, celebration, stress, reflection, etc- but there seems to be a common thread for...

It's that time of year again. That time when I'm reminded of just how much I love pumpkin...pumpkin pie that is. There's just something so magical about the classic combination of pumpkin and spice, I don't know why it's not a year-round staple. I suppose that's what makes it so special though. In a...

You MUST try these brownies. I know there are about a million raw brownie recipes out there but these are just so rich and delicious...not to mention that they're packed with so many nutrient dense Superfoods. Most raw brownie recipes call for dates, walnut and cacao powder (and that's the extent of...

Chocolate and peanuts- is there any better combination? Ok, chocolate and cherries...chocolate and hazelnut...chocolate and mint- those are good too ;) But seriously, it's such a deliciously classic pairing. Unfortunately traditional peanuts contain aflatoxins, a toxic fungus that causes the common ...

Sometimes our not-so-optimal habits in one area can be surprisingly useful in another. For example: I know it's more productive to focus all of your energy on a singular task but I'm definitely a multi-tasker. While this may not be ideal, it can definitely come in handy in the kitchen and I frequent...

I've always been a foodie. Living in New York City for 10 years was like being a kid in a candy store when it came to dining out. I enjoyed gourmet meals on a regular basis, complete with wine and elegant desserts....and then health became a priority. And fast. I gave up the fancy dinners out and ad...

I always get a bit sad when summer winds to a close. Not that I don't love fall but summer is perhaps my favorite season. It's true that I live in Arizona now, but I grew up in Michigan so to me summer will always mean sunshine, carefree days and summer vacations...And there's only one thing that ca...

This weekend we did a demo at our local Whole Foods on Speedway (as local as you can get when the nearest Whole Foods is 1 1/2 hours away-lol). As always, it's so great to meet our fans and introduce those who are new to Superfoods to our favorite items. I love to see people light up when they try o...

When the world is in such turbulant times, it's easy to start to feel a bit down or deflated... ... who ever we are we all have our "...what is the point in all of this?" moments... Now, that's a pretty big question! Nobody has 'The Answer'... so don't beat yourself up about any of it... ...
