Vegan Cherry Spinach Banana Coconut Milk Smoothie

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 Posted by

There’s nothing like a good nutritious smoothie packed full of vitamins and minerals to kick start your day, or to give you a boost in the afternoon. Lately, I’ve really gotten into adding spinach or kale into my smoothies. Spinach and kale are an excellent source of Vitamins A, B-6, C, and Vitamin K. I should also mention that these leafy greens add some major iron, niacin, and folic acid to your diet as well. Oh, and with the other sweet treats I add, like banana and cherries, you can’t even taste the spinach or kale. Nice, right? This is … Read the rest

Stellar Organics 2011 Pinotage

Thursday, March 14, 2013 Posted by

Time to wind down with some organic wine! This time I chose Stellar Organics Pinotage 2011. This organic red wine has no added sulfites, is vegan, and is fairly traded. It hails from South Africa. That means there are no pesticides, herbicides, or other nasty chemicals used in growing these organic grapes for wine making. Yay!! And this wine is relatively cheap. In price, that is, not is it’s making.

My girlfriend and I both liked this wine. The Stellar Organics Pinotage 2011 had a little spiciness to it with an overal plum/fruity flavor. It would go perfect with a … Read the rest

Pacific Redwood Organic Pinot Noir Wine 2011

Saturday, March 2, 2013 Posted by

Want a wine that has only has naturally occurring sulfites and is organic? I know I do. Try Pacific Redwood Organic Pinot Noir 2011. This organic red wine is tasty, smooth, and cheap. I did a review on Pacific Redwood Organic Cabernet a while ago, and I liked that organic red wine as well. It’s hard to find wine these days that’s organic, vegan friendly, and has NO added sulfites. You would think that should be the norm. Unfortunately, it’s not. But for this California wine company it is!!

Pacific Redwood Organic Pinot Noir is smooth and light with hints … Read the rest

Savory Squash Soup with Butternut and Acorn Squash

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 Posted by

In my opinion this recipe is pretty delicious. The only sweetness comes from the squash and it is a very thick puree (probably not unlike baby food). If you like your soup thinner you may want to add more vegetable broth. This recipe makes approximately 5 quarts and is easy to make a ahead for a dinner party and reheat. It also works well as a light meal served with a sandwich or some herb bread with a goat cheese like chevre. I always use fresh herbs if I have them on hand, but it still tastes excellent with high … Read the rest
