Gaining Maximum Nutrients & Freshness from Flaxseeds

This subscriber-aimed post is something of a belated addendum to my last entry, which I felt was worthy of a full entry status (and submission to LORAX Community’s Vegan DIY & related Kitchen blogs) since the subject of flaxseed meal seems to have generated a great deal of interest and several readers took the time to write via various mediums. Thanks to Alena for having commented directly to the original post, and to everyone who submitted comments via social media as well as the site’s contact...

Spicy Raw Vegan “Nacho Cheese”

Happy (nearly) Full Moon! Wouldn’t it be wild if the moon just happened to be made of (raw vegan) cheese? 😉 Whilst musing such mirthful fancies, I’ve decided that this week would be as good a time as any to share an exceedingly simple, low-fat, creamy & seemingly decadent raw vegan formulation with all of you!

Despite my reluctance to celebrate my day of birth as some monumental...

Pomegranate White Chocolate Fudge

  Happy November! Is it just my imagination, or did October pass by with extraordinary speed? Although I am most attached to Summer, October has always carried a feeling akin to “Summer’s last breath.” For me, Hallowe’en is not only a celebration of harvest season, but also the harbinger of Winter Solstice… The very last celebration of life itself, just preceding the moment when everything goes into extreme hibernation mode until the arrival of Spring Equinox.

Raw Vegan Caramel Apples

Trick or Treat! Hallowe’en has always been one of my favourite days of the year, especially since dressing up in costumes has always been a “thing” for me since as far back as I can recall. In fact, I can honestly remember only two instances in my lifetime where Hallowe’en has been the opposite of fun, one of which was an entire day spent in a hospital unable to walk & dealing with getting ex-rays on a shattered knee for the majority of the day following a cycling accident which...
