Sorry for the typo what I meant is that the garbanzo beans look like chick peas.
Marise -Mar 17, 2014, 11:49PM
This soup sounds and looks delicious, however, what are garbanzo beans? Are they chic peas as we know them in Australia, they plonk like it. Looking forward to making this soup. Thanks

Post image for 5 Alkalizing Foods To Eat Every Day

Life is all about balance. Ying and yang; light and dark; work and play…and our bodies are no different. The human body is constantly striving to maintain a balanced pH level in the blood in order for it to survive. Read more »

These foods all have wonderful nutritional benefits but it has nothing to do with blood pH... which is not affected by what you eat. Your body regulates pH through a balance of carbon dioxide and bicarbonate... an imbalance in pH results from serious medical issues like respiratory depression or kidney failure. I love this blog but implying that eating "alkalinizing foods" can cure "seeming incurable illnesses" is offensive to anyone with a basic medical education. Promoting the idea that "alkalinizing foods" will cure your illnesses is as irresponsible as promoting juice cleanses to "clear toxins"... which they don't. Kale is rich in fiber and vitamins, and is a great component of a well rounded diet. It doesn't need to have magical pH properties to be healthy

So glad to see that I am an avid eater of all of these! Especially lemon kale and cucumber! xo, Juliette Laura

The smell when baking this is amazing! Can't wait to try it in the morning, if I can wait that long :)

I am wondering if the apples in this granola make it necessary to refrigeration....I am not sure the baking time will be sufficient to avoid mold spores from the apples in a short time. Do the apples actually dry and crisp in that amount of baking, with all the moisture available I would probably opt to refrigerate the batch and also consume within a few days to avoid mold....

Question about the lime juice. which cup or tablespoon or teaspoon should I use for the lime juice? I read the receipt, but it doesn't mention of which one I use for the lime juice. I need to know before I will make. Thanks!

Post image for How To Make Tea

There is something really beautiful about tea…the scent, the dried herbs and flowers, and of course the taste.  In all of my years of drinking tea, I don’t know why I’ve never attempted to make my own blends.  Read more »

That was a great article, thanks! If you'd like to make your custom tea, but don't want to have to source all the ingredients and mix them and such, try out my site! It lets you create a custom tea and order it.
Nicole Martin -Jul 10, 2014, 2:29PM
Beautiful pictures! Ceylon is one of my favorite black teas too. I tend to be a bit of a purist so I don't often do blending but these concoctions sound really tasty.

I just made these with a flax egg (1 TBS ground flax w/ 3 TBS water) instead of a real egg, and they turned out fantastic.
Kathy -Jan 13, 2014, 1:50PM
I am grain and dairy free and my 2 year old grand daughter is allergic to eggs. I adapted this recipe to meet our needs and to use up bits of different nut butters left in my fridge. I used 1/2 c cashew butter, 1/2 c walnut butter, 1/4 c pecan butter, for the egg, I substituted 1 T apple cider vinegar plus 1 t baking soda. This is in addition to the 1t baking soda called for in the recipe. I also added 1/2 t baking powder. Then followed the rest of the list of ingredients using maple syrup instead of honey. The mix was a little thin so, I put it in the fridge for 30 minutes before spooning it out onto my baking sheet. They turned out great. They puffed up in the oven while baking but fell quite flat as they cooled on the baking sheet. They are soft and sweet and wonderful and taste like the ones I've made using grains. I'm so happy and don't feel deprived now. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

I think it’s pretty easy to find fresh dill right now though – they even have it in the supermarkets around us right now. You definitely want to use fresh garlic cloves, and then if you like, a pinch of red pepper flakes, a few black peppercorns and little mustard seed to round out the flavors.
Kim -Jan 03, 2014, 6:41PM
I can't wait till tonight to make this with my husband. They look amazing.

Post image for 3-Ingredient Quinoa Recipe

I’m a huge fan of quinoa. It’s a healthy replacement for grains like rice and couscous, and it can be incorporated into so many different dishes. My favorite quinoa recipe is actually one I came up with on my own when I was throwing together random ingredients in my kitchen. Read more »
