Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars

IMG_1988

Naturally, I’m a big fan of juicing and smoothies but sometimes the food addict in me just wants to eat something- as opposed to drink. Confession time – yes, I’m one of those people who treat liquids as “not counting”.  Liquid calories, however, do add up and FAST! Luckily, I’m not a soda, sports drink or juice user. That’s right..

Imagine a carb-less wrap that’s vegan, gluten-free and low calorie. That’s how I think of my homemade summer rolls now. Quite often I opt to order the summer rolls on a  menu as an appetizer.

What I mean is that it’s a full on diner with everything […]

I was thinking.. wow.. It looks like a Tofu McDonalds. I wasn’t sure if this was a good thing or a bad thing. […]

Kelp Noodles

I have come a long way in my acceptance and transition back to the world of pasta… well, at least to the word “noodle” itself. Self acclaimed pasta-holic that I am, I have mentioned and confessed my addiction many times along this vegan blog journey. I feared the word pasta or noodle even up to my very recent zucchini noodle […]
