Vanilla Cantaloupe Ice Cream + A Plant Based Diet

Vanilla Cantaloupe Ice Cream + A Plant Based Diet

Clean eating gets me so stoked. It's hard to really explain the feeling unless you are also on a super clean plant-based diet. It's like vibrant energy combined with knowing that you're not contributing to the killing or abuse of animals.

Asparagus Gazpacho // Detox Soup

Asparagus Gazpacho // Detox Soup

Maybe because Summer is upon us and the weather is warming up, but I've been craving a super healthy cold soup. This is a raw food soup (minus the blanching of the asparagus) that is so clean simple and yet full of flavor.

This dish is perfect for those light lunches. If you must have something with a bit more texture or heartiness, then add some cooked quinoa or maybe some flax crackers.
