Easter Thoughts On Carob, Brands & Chocolate Tasting

Chocolate tasting setup

My last post on chocolate brought up some questions, so I thought I'd film another video to answer them.

First one was - what about carob? Well, I love carob, but it's a totally different flavor from cocoa. Not everyone likes it, and it's hard to find carob treats to buy so if you can't make your own it's a bit tricky.

I also find that most carob treats are made with hydrogenated palm oils, which aren't the greatest. Personally, I'd rather eat dark chocolate made with cocoa butter.


How Much Chocolate Should I Eat?

How Much Chocolate Should I Eat?

This past weekend, I managed to survive a 3-day obstacle race involving crazy things like climbing over a bus, jumping over a fire pit, running up a hill with a sandbag, crawling under barbed wire and other such things.

I spent Sunday afternoon relaxing and making a mango dragon roll. It was phenomenal! It had banana and avocado inside, and sliced mango on the top, dragon style. I topped it with toasted coconut and drizzled with some dark chocolate melted and spiced with cayenne.

It was so fun to make that I posted a photo on Instagram, and it spurred a question from Collette about how much dark chocolate she should eat. I responded there, but it was such a good question that I wanted to share my thoughts here!


Happy Spring! What I'm Up To Right Now

Happy Spring!

It's officially spring! This is a great time to get a fresh perspective on life and maybe make some new goals.

I've been hard at work on a few new projects, and thought I'd check in with you about some of them.

Having your freezer stocked with healthy foods is a great way to make daily food prep easier.

I keep a few key things in my freezer at all times to make sure I have what I need.

Then, when I have extras of a meal like a soup or veggie burgers, I'll put that in the freezer to enjoy another time.


How To Make Grains & Beans Taste Amazing

If you can make grains and beans taste amazing, plant-based meals become so much more fun

Making grains and beans taste fantastic is really important because they're quite bland on their own.

My goal is to make healthy plant foods taste really great to encourage people to eat more of them, and beans and grains are one of the most important.

Beans have important amino acids and minerals, while grains have vitamins and other nutrients.
