Carrot Cake Power Protein Smoothie

As a young girl, I would always ask my mom for a carrot cake on my birthday. When I transitioned to a vegan diet ten years ago, I wondered how I could recreate a plant based carrot cake alternative. Around the same time, people began to ask me where I would source my protein from. This smoothie is like cake in a bottle and packed with protein. Carrots are high in beta-carotenes, potent anti-oxidants that have the immune supporting benefits of vitamin A. Nuttzo, hemp hearts, Viva Vanilla Vega Protein Powder, and almond milk, fuse into a rainbow of protein power, that …

Teff Nuttzo Cookie

I had the joy of living in Ethiopia and eating injera bread daily. Injera comes from the powerhouse grain teff, which is gluten-free and high in calcium, protein, and fiber. I was beyond excited to find that Bob’s Red Mill sells teff flour and began dreaming up all the teff treats I could make.  ROO’s Teff Nuttzo Cookie reminds me of a shortbread cookie in consistency and has a delicious nutty taste highlighting Nuttzo’s seven different nuts and seeds. If you want to make Santa happy, consider leaving the Teff Nuttzo Cookie with the Cashew Christmas Milk under the tree. You may …

Gratitude

I am headed to Ethiopia today and overwhelmed with gratitude for the support of family, friends, and strangers as I have prepared for my trip. My fundraising campaign for the Yaya Girls Running Program in Sululta, Ethiopia was a huge success! I surpassed my goal and raised over $8,000, which will not only fund four young Ethiopian women for the upcoming trimester, but also contribute to future Yaya Girls scholarships. Numerous companies have donated incredible gear and goodies for the Yaya Girls. Oiselle, which I run for, has contributed beautiful shirts with inspiring running designs on the front! Health Warrior has …

GraNutOla: Nutty Granola

I can still remember discovering Angela Liddon’s blog Oh She Glows for the first time and being absolutely in awe at her delicious, innovative, and colorful plant-based creations. When she published The Oh She Glows Cookbook in March 2014, I had it on pre-order before it was out! One of my favorite recipes is her “Ultimate Nutty Granola Clusters.” I have adapted the recipe to include even more nuts and enjoy it best with a scoop of Nuttzo over my Buddhaful Smoothie! Ingredients: 1 cup almonds 1/2 cup walnut halves or pieces 1/2 cup pecan pieces 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 1 …
