Many of us grew up eating frozen fudge bars and loved them!

However, as we left childhood behind and committed to the invigorating, slimming and delicious plant based diet, fudge bars were left behind, as vegan fudge bars are practically non-existent.  There is one brand I am aware of that costs about $1.50 a bar and that is if you can find them.

Don’t give up yet … it’s really easy to make your own frozen bars at home in just five minutes at a cost of only about fifty cents a bar.

A typical packaged fudge bar contains unhealthy ingredients, such as, dairy products, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), alkali processed cocoa, carrageenan, artificial flavors and a host of other additives.[1] …read more of Awesome Chocolate Fudge Bars – Easy and Delicious! here

Pancakes are delicious, quick to the table and really easy to make!

It seems that pancakes have been with us for a very long time.

The ancient Greeks and Romans ate pancakes that were sweetened with honey and in the Elizabethan era pancakes, made from a flour and egg batter were a popular breakfast food flavored with spices, rosewater, sherry and apples.

With origins in the Middle Ages, Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day falls on the first Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, a day of feasting before the beginning of Lent. Traditionally lots of pancakes were eaten as a way to use up eggs, milk and sugar before the 40 days of fasting during Lent.

There is evidence of pancake cookery from the Stone Age. Analysis of grinding tools from about 30,000 years ago suggests that pancakes were among the first foods that humans learned to cook. …read more of Hot off the Griddle ~ High Protein Strawberry Banana Pancakes With No Added Fat! here

Preventing Alzheimer’s with Lifestyle Changes

It’s safe to say that Alzheimer’s disease research is in a “state of crisis.”

For the past two decades, over 73,000 research articles have been published, yet little clinical progress has been made. The reason a cure may be impossible is because lost cognitive functions in Alzheimer’s disease patients are due to fatally damaged neuronal networks, and dead nerve cells cannot be brought back to life.

Consequently, replacement with new brain cells—even if it were technically possible, cannot be done without creating a new personal identity. One may live, but is it really a cure if their personality is lost forever?

Developing drugs that try to clear out the plaques from advanced degenerated brain tissue therefore makes about as much sense as bulldozing tombstones from graveyards in an attempt to raise the dead. Even if drug companies figured out how to halt further disease progression, many Alzheimer’s victims might not choose to live without being able to recognize family, friends, or themselves in a mirror. …read more of Preventing Alzheimer’s with Lifestyle Changes here

A plant-based or vegan diet is one that avoids all animal products.  Optimally healthful and really delicious, a balanced diet of vegetables, legumes, grains and fruit has been shown to reduce the risk of many types of cancer, heart disease, obesity and related conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes.

The vegetable kingdom is a rich source of antioxidants that have tremendous health benefits and cruciferous vegetables are highly prized for powerful anti-carcinogens, such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane …read more of Reduce Your Risk of Breast Cancer More Than 50 Percent with Cruciferous Superfoods here

Protein has become a buzzword often associated with health and fitness and protein shakes continue to be all the rage with all levels of athletes, bodybuilders and Crossfitter enthusiasts around the world.

While there are many brands of protein products available, they fall into two general categories: dairy-based whey products and plant protein products. Plant-based protein is much easier to digest and intrinsically environmentally superior.

Nutiva has introduced a new power shake that incorporates thirty superfoods in one shake and is certified organic. Available in chocolate and vanilla, the Organic Plant Protein Superfood 30 Shake is non-GMO, vegan and gluten-free and contains 20 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per serving.

The Organic Nutiva Superfood 30 Shake is made without dairy, soy, artificial flavors, added sugar or stevia and gets its protein punch from pea, pumpkin, sunflower, chia, hemp and sacha inchi plant proteins. …read more of This Nutrient Dense Vegan Protein Shake Delivers 30 Superfoods! here
