I’ve been having more adventures with the dehydrator recently, and wanted to try to make something to take care of those salty crunchy cravings. These satisfied about half of that desire but turned out very fulfilling in their own way. … Continue reading

I’ve had an abundance of beets lately and needed some new inspiration to use them up. I’m not all that fond of roasted beets, and one can only use so many in juice. So… in thinking about it, I thought … Continue reading

I don’t have a lot of fond breakfast memories from when I was growing up. In high school, I do remember getting up late every morning, rushing so as not to be late for school (even though I was late for homeroom nearly every day), with a hurried glass of orange juice on the way out the door.

Today begins a series of posts that will discuss some of the things that come up when transitioning to a vegan (or raw or other new type of) diet.
One thing that I find is that sometimes people are so thrilled about what they are doing and want to jump right into it, they quickly become overwhelmed. So many meals… breakfast, lunch, and dinner…. that’s alot of new ideas to come up with.

And really, the possibilities are endless ~ it can be as simple or as complicated as one wants it to be. Here are some examples of what it could look like: Continue reading
