What do you get when you make homemade granola using all raw ingredients?

Rawnola!

While the texture is slightly more chewy than traditional homemade granola which is baked in an oven, the taste is equally as delicious. I love making rawnola because it is extremely versatile. You can use it any way you would with granola – add it to smoothie bowls ( such as the ones we made yesterday ), chia pudding, on it’s own with some almond milk, or just eat it straight out of the jar!

Smoothie Bowls – What’s the Hype All About?

Smoothie Bowls

Yesterday I mentioned some detoxifying benefits of a vegan diet. One easy vegan recipe you can have for either breakfast or lunch is a smoothie bowl! Lately I have been obsessed with making smoothie bowls. If you’re not familiar with what it is, it’s basically just as the name states – a smoothie in a bowl.

What is the most effective medicine in the world… well, some say Preventive Medicine! Makes much sense doesn’t it? Just stop getting sick before you are really sick! This is mostly speaking of chronic degenerative, or lifestyle diseases. Nonetheless this strikes me as the future of medicine happening today!

I was eager to share this very interesting interview on a very radical solution to eradicate diabetes. I am glad to call this woman a friend, and I truly believe the world needs more hard-working people like these, who appreciate the very small things in life, such as the genes!! Yes… but also such as the moments in life that as simple as they are, can be like medicine for the soul.

IS CEVICHE SUPER ANTI-AGING?!

Anti Aging Ceviche

What makes ceviche exceptionally healthy?

When food is cooked under heat it increases its content of AGE’s (advanced glycation end products), which ironical to their acronym, make you age faster, and also prone to degenerative diseases.
