It’s Taco Tuesday! …and although I would love to indulge in some tasty tacos, I’m still deep in the detox game (see previous Spring Salad post) and tacos are off limits for the time being.  So to adapt, I whipped up something tasty in the spirit of Taco Tuesday, but that was also ReBoot protocol-friendly:  Veggie … Read More...

Homemade Paleo & Vegan-friendly Raw Bread Recipe

One of my all-time favorite foods is bread, but like many of our favorite foods, not always the best for us when it comes to our health – especially what’s available as our options today.  As most of us know, most all bread is a processed food-like product, it’s not real food (we don’t find … Read More...
