Gluten-free BB Brownies

The basis for these brownies is … wait for it… black beans (BB).  Who would have thought you could use beans to make brownies? I am a fan! These brownies are dense and fudgy, less cakey than a typical brownie.

Get Your "Dairy" Aire in Shape For Summer!

The Importance of RIPE fruit

People are quick to cross fruits off their "lists" because the fruit has given them some of the undesirable  effects listed below. In doing so, they lose potential to reap the benefits of all the nutrients, fiber, and perfect water that that fruit has to offer! 

Has a banana ever made you constipated? Have oranges or kiwis ever given you blisters in your mouth? Chances are you have experienced some side effect of eating un-ripe fruit. My hope in this post is to educate about the importance of fruit being ripe before you eat it. 

Can't Afford Healthy Foods?

I have talked to so many people that tell me, they simply cannot eat a healthy diet because it is too expensive. But is it really?

Vegetarian Buddhist Temple Food To Hit Paris

In an unusual mix of ancient tradition and modern art, the first Korean Buddhist temple food restaurant will be opened on the rooftop of  Galeries Lafayette in Paris next year, in an effort to introduce the 1,700-year-old Buddhist cuisine to the increasing health-conscious West.

The restaurant itself will take the form of a ‘hanok’, a traditional Korean House, showcasing the beauty of Korean architecture.  You can see the styling inside and outside of the two hanoks above and below.

What to bring to Korea if you’re Vegetarian / Vegan

Be it comfort food, nutrition or pleasure seeking indulgence. There are a few things difficult for vegetarians and vegans to obtain in South Korea. Here are  few suggestions on what to bring on your visit – or extended stay – to South Korea.

1. Marmite / Vegemite. Yes, they are vegan as well as being high in vitamin B12, brimming with salty goodness and in my opinion delicious. They say you either love it or hate it. But in my house marmite is king of the breakfast table.   Not available in Korea.
