Avocado Seed Smoothie

Say whattttt?!

Avocado seeds? You can’t eat those! They’re too hard! You can’t put them in a smoothie, they’ll break your blender!

Nope!

Well, they might break your blender if you don’t have a Vitamix. Which if you don’t have one of those by now, what are you doing with your life?!

People have all the sudden been sending me links to articles about the amazing health benefits of avocado pits. Ones like this. It’s WAY healthier than the avocado meat itself and I was completely blown away by this information. And you honestly can barely notice it if you add it to a really fruity smoothie. It makes it really creamy and slightly nutty. I add it to a mango, pineapple, avocado meat, kale, hemp and date smoothie and it’s absolutely delicious. And how awesome is it to not have to waste the seed?!

So here’s something you’d never thought you’d see from me-a recipe featuring fake meat. I know, I know. A total deviation from what I stand for and how I generally cook.

Arugula, Peach, Radish + Corn Salad

016

Nothing like the pressure of another website to light a fire under your ass when it comes to recipe development. It’s no secret I’m busy. I doubt I’ve posted ANYTHING that past year that wasn’t prefaced by how overwhelmingly stressed I always am. I’ve juggled a minimum of three jobs this summer, and have somehow also found time to kayak […]

Avocado Quesadillas

004

May I present to you the most basic of basic breakfasts? If you’re not familiar with avocado toast for breakfast, you need to get on board with that. I usually top whole wheat toast or English muffins with mashed avocado, crushed red pepper, salt and black pepper and it’s my absolute favorite. For breakfast, for […]

Loaded Buddha Bowl

005

After what feels like months, here is a truly new, fairly epic, somewhat life-altering recipe from yours truly. It’s a rare moment I actually take the time to plan ahead and cook meals for myself, though that seems ridiculous for a vegan chef to do. I’m so preoccupied feeding everyone else, it is often than […]

UrthBox Review

007

I love me a good monthly vegan subscription box. It seems like there are hundreds out there now, but I don’t think I’ve ever received one with so many organic vegan treats for such an awesome price as UrthBox. You choose your own specific dietary box, what size you want (the bigger you buy, the […]
