Vegan Chai Granola

This past summer, I had the amazing opportunity to get my yoga teacher certification through a one month course at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in the Bahamas. I felt like I had prepared pretty well for the month (waking up a little earlier, practicing yoga every day), but, wow, was I wrong. We woke up…

Almond Butter Chia Bars

This recipe, however, has 6 grams of…

Simple Chocolate Nicecream

Sometimes, you need ice cream. Or, really, you want ice cream, something cold and sweet and indulgent and full of chocolate.
