Endangered Species Créme Filled Dark Chocolate Bars

Cream and chocolate. There is nothing better, nothing.  Since going vegan, I’ve sincerely missed cream-filled chocolate bars and found little that would satiate that desire. Until now! 

I was beside myself with excitement when I spotted the new line of Endangered Species Créme Filled Dark Chocolate bars in a NY health food store. So much so that I couldn’t stop at just one. I bought all six!

Creamy, Dreamy Chocolate “Cheesecake”

If there is one food I could not live without, it would have to be chocolate. A piece of nice dark chocolate a day is very good for my mental health. And with all of the antioxidants and other benefits of dark chocolate, I never let myself feel guilty for indulging.  

While this recipe is not quite as healthy as a piece of dark chocolate, it is probably the healthiest, creamiest and dreamiest chocolate “cheesecake” you can make!

Choc-orange Green Smoothie

We have green smoothies for breakfast every day. It’s a great and refreshing way to start the day with a dose of greens, as well as omega-3 and omega-6 from seeds, and other healthful ingredients. I like to be creative with my green smoothies, and sometimes it’s successful and other times, meh.  My partner was starting to get a bit sick of them, so he asked me to focus on things he really likes for a while: chocolate, banana and peanut butter being three of the key ingredients.

Cooking Class Recap: Creamy Chocolate Vegan and Gluten-Free Allstars!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking my first cooking class at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City.  It’s one of the few culinary institutions in the city that is focused on cooking with whole foods and many of its classes are vegan and gluten-free.  In addition to amazing and creative hands-on cooking classes, they also have lectures on a range of health and food-related topics.  I have already signed up for more classes and just know that this is going to be a place I am going to have a deep and meaningful relationship with.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Green Smoothie

Peanut butter and chocolate is a match made in heaven and this green smoothie is just divine! The best thing is, it not only tastes great, it’s good for you! Raw cacao is full of healthy antioxidants and the flax seeds provide much-needed Omega-3 fats. When combined with kale this smoothie is a nutritional powerhouse. Though it’s just as good with spinach too!
