Cacao Oat Pom Poms

Tonight my friend Michele and I had our first workshop of many workshops yet to come.  We talked about healthy eating, managing cravings, self care tips and Michele taught some yoga poses and I taught meditation.  We also gave out gift bags and served vegan sweets.

I am so happy that I put myself out there; it's difficult starting a business, it takes alot of courage and determination when self doubt and fear is everwhere. You learn as you go and you take note for next time.  It's challenging and so exciting and I'm so lucky to be starting my business in the greatest city in the world!

New Yorkers, stay tuned for another workshop in January.  I'll be sending out invitations on my facebook page, did you like it yet?
This recipe is the dessert I made for the workshop.  Cacao Oat Pom easy and perfect for the holidays.  You can whip them up in your food processor in under 10 minutes and freeze or refrigerate them.  They are sweet and naturally healthy with no processed sugar. They are also gluten free.

Cacao Oat Pom Poms
1/2 cup of rolled oats
2.5 tbsp of cacao powder
10-15 medjool dates, pitted
1/4 cup of maple syrup

Add all the ingredients to your food processor and process on high.  Scoop out the batter and shape into balls. Freeze or refrigerate.  Serve for dessert.  Makes about 10-15 pom poms depending on how big you make them.
Love these!!  What is your favorite dessert to bring to the holiday table?

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
