Vegan Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

Mac & Cheese—it is pretty much at the very top of every list of comfort food. Ooey, gooey, melty, creamy...we form a love affair early on in childhood and it never goes away. Take away the traditional dairy-based cheese, and the expected gluten-based pasta, and what's left? Well, team up with kitchen champs The Curry Girls, and what's left is this delectably rich, smooth, delicious...

Healthy Clam Chowder to Warm Your Heart and Hearth

We are so excited to share this wonderfully delicious hearty clam chowder soup with you! After searching through the many recipe books we settled on adapting Ina Garten’s East Hampton’s Clam Chowder. Her version takes well over an hour, but we were hungry, and needed to adapt for dairy-free and gluten-free. Ours made plenty for 6-8 bowls full and was ready in 30 minutes! Enjoy with a crusty baguette to warm up ever-cooling nights.

Train Your Brain to Change Unhealthy Eating Habits

Change Unhealthy Eating Habits: Researchers have reported evidence that we can “re-wire” reward centers our brain, shifting them to respond to healthy food instead of unhealthy food.

Researchers have reported the first evidence that we can “re-wire” the reward centers in the brain that encourage addictive-like behavior to unhealthy food—shifting them to respond to low-calorie, healthy food instead. This important switch in food preferences is thought to be a critical factor in achieving long-term weight loss.
