white beans with grilled kale and roasted tomatoes

game changing grilled kale

  I cannot stress enough how much I love this stuff.  Dress it up or eat it straight off the stems with your hands, oil dripping down your chin. I don’t really want to eat kale any other way these days. This recipe’s chewy, smoky, juiciness satisfies me at a very primal level. Plan on…

Penne Rosé

The unabbreviated title of this dish might be “Vegan, Gluten & Soy Free Penne Rosé with Mushrooms, Cauliflower & Chard”. For me, it is the pinnacle of comfort food. I am eating it as I write and it is deeeeelicious. About two years ago, I deduced that I am allergic to most soy products. Prior…

Green Lemonade

While I am on the subject of ‘getting your greens’, here is a drink that feels and tastes like an elixir for youth and vitality. The recipe belongs to Natalia Rose, author of  “The Raw Food Detox Diet“.  This book is a great introductory read into the whys and hows of the raw food diet….
