Raw Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse

I’m sitting at the airport waiting for my flight, and what better way to spend my time than to blog about food???? (Or watch some 30 Rock on netflix…hmmmmm) I’m also pretty exhausted because I’ve been up recently having a 30 Rock marathon…I can’t believe I have never watched this show before. It’s hilarious. The writing, actors, story line….EVERYTHING is so incredibly funny. Of course I would start watching the night of the season finale. I know I am going to be so disappointed when I finally get to Season 7 and realize that it’s over. No more Liz Lemon on my screen…say it isn’t so : ( (more…)

In Need of A Dessert? Try a Raw Brownie

It’s day five of my cleanse, and so far it has been going amazing. I’m amazed by all the recipes out there for wholesome meals without the need for meat, or processed items. I haven’t gone a day feeling like I am missing out on good foods and that I am starving my body. In fact, it’s just the opposite. A lot of the meals I have been cooking are low in calories, but high in nutrients, which enables me to snack on foods that are healthy and I don’t feel guilty afterwords.

I do have a confession to make…I have been craving baked goodies, and fruits are not cutting it in the sweet department. As you know (or should have figured out from past posts!), I lovelovelovelove to bake, and in the past pretty much all my recipes called for flour, sugar, eggs and milk, which is now a problem. I’m not going to lie, it’s been really challenging finding desserts that fit the bill for my cleanse. So far, I have found only three recipes that sound delicious…I’d love to hear some suggestions on easy desserts that don’t contain flour, sugar, eggs or dairy!

One of these recipes that I happened to stumble upon is the raw brownie, by My New Roots, and just looking at the recipe, I knew I had to make it.
