National Nutrition Month – 2019
National Nutrition Month – March 2019 Why do I love nutrition and health? Nutrition is very intricate and individualized. You can care for each person differently because they have different needs (still following the Standards of Practice (SOP) of course).
In honor of National Muffin Day
Happy National Muffin Day – in honor of yesterday February 20th, 2019 As soon as I saw that it was National Muffin Day, I was inspired to come up with a creation!

Fresh Lemon Curd
Lemony fresh with the zest for life! Great for summertime toppings and baking. This makes a great filling for scones, cakes, or cupcakes, such as vanilla or carrot cake. I also want to experiment with making homemade vegan lemon curd ice cream!

Add a toasty flavor with oven roasted coconut flakes! I like making a big batch of these scones and throwing them in the freezer for later use.
Southwestern Pasta Salad
Great summertime cold pasta salad full of veggies and protein. I made this for a Cinco de Mayo party and it was a great hit! Packed with tomatoes, corn, onion, cilantro, black beans, and cheese. Wonderful for any summer gathering or party! I also want to try adding crunchy, colorful bell peppers.

So basically a foolproof recipe and not overpowering on the tomato soup flavor when baked off (although the batter is really…
Vegan Chocolate Cake
This is my all time favorite chocolate cake recipe and it’s vegan! That means this is a super moist cake. This cake is an all-occasion delight, the last event I made this cake for was Mother’s Day which went over swimmingly! *Vegan Frosting recipe below*
