Cauliflower Ranch Dip

Repost and modified from Well+GOOD

This is a low-fat, low-calorie, dairy-free ranch dip that Morris swears will pass the test of any devoted ranch lover. It’s great with vegetables, especially broccoli florets; in fact I’ve been known to eat an entire crown of broccoli so long as it’s accompanied by […]

Banana Zucchini Oatmeal Muffins

There is a delicate balance in health minded muffins.  You want your muffin to be tasty but you don’t need a dump of gluten and sugar in the process.  If you’re like me, you also want your baked goods to be easy breezy, not too much of a hassle […]

Butternut Squash Mac-n-Cheese

I’ve been on a ten year quest. Not for knowledge, not for gold, but for a crave-worthy vegan macaroni and cheese recipe. It’s been a long and hard road, I’ve encountered clumpy sauces, strange flavors, and lacklaster “cheese” factors. I can’t say that I’ll ever stop the search, but […]

True Fountain of Youth

With major concerns over sugar in our diets, fruit has gotten a bad reputation, and wrongly so.  You can call a spade a spade, but you can’t group all sugars in the same category. Along the way we’ve grouped berries, melon, citrus fruits…with high-fructose corn syrup, sucrose, processed cane […]

Cauliflower Salad with Creamy Herb Dressing

How many of you are fans of good old ranch dressing?  Ranch is engrained in our culture like cheeseburgers and ice cream, but it’s horrible for us :(  Have you ever read the label on the Hidden Valley bottle…disgusting!  If you’re having a hard time giving up your store […]

Crispy Peanut Butter Balls

Have I mentioned (numerous times) that my family LOVES dessert?!  I have a fiance who is more than supportive of my cleansing lifestyle ways, he participates in my meatless meals and is my tester for all things gluten, dairy, and sugar free.  BUT, there is one thing he won’t […]

California Shrimp Stack

How lucky am I to live in the state that redefined healthy cuisine?  While I redefined what is means to cleanse, California redefined what it meant to eat well, and boy do cleansing and “California Cuisine” have a lot in common! They’re synonymous with organic, seasonal (when you can), […]

The Healthiest Tea on Earth

Part of my passion, my work, and something I spend a lot of time on is researching the wellness products you need to know about.  I liken myself to the Nancy Drew of the super food and supplement world. My favorite research subject is myself and every product I […]

Elissa’s Daily Detox Tonic

Each morning, the cleansers participating in my S.O.U.P. cleanse (and myself) start the day with this incredibly detoxifying drink, my daily detox tonic.  When you start the day this way, your motivation begins from the time you wakeup, every ingredient, including the water, has an intention and a purpose.
