DSC_1493-2

Cupcakes are my guilty pleasure as many of you know already. My absolutely favorite ones are the ones from Susie Cakes, but I’m always open to try out new places. Bottega Louie was on my list of places to go to when I was going to visit Downtown LA. I’d seen so many Instagram posts about this place that I wanted to go check it out for myself.  Continue reading

Recipe: Lemon Cheesecake Quest Bar Cups


Slaiden One 1-4

Do you ever have cravings for a healthy snack that contains protein and that doesn’t make you feel guilty after eating it? I wanted to make a raw cheesecake for a while now, but I also wanted to use quest bars because since I’m a runner, I could use the extra protein from protein bars. I decided to combine the two things I wanted to make and what you see in the picture is the result of it! 😉 Continue reading

One of my favorite snacks is chocolate. I know that lots of people will agree with me when I say that it’s not easy to say no to chocolate when it’s offered to you. I’ve been trying out quite a few clean recipes lately, but I have to admit that this is one of my favorite ones. What would you think of eating chocolate without feeling guilty about it? Wouldn’t that be amazing? For me, it sure is! The best of all is that it takes you no more than 10 minutes to make these raw, vegan & gluten free chocolates. Continue reading

With last week’s hot temperatures in LA, I was craving ice cream! I’ve been so good on the running though that I didn’t want to mess everything up by going to 7/11 to buy Ben & Jerry’s. I decided to try out a healthy recipe instead. I’m really interested in the raw vegan lifestyle and I’m following a bunch of raw vegan peeps on Instagram. They inspired me to try out this recipe. I hope you all enjoy it! Let me know what’s your favorite raw or vegan recipe in the comments below and maybe I try it out and feature it on the blog (and give you credit for it by posting the link to your blog)!

A couple of months ago, Stacy brought some cupcakes home. The red velvet ones. I had never tried this taste before but I instantly loved it! They also had the best frosting on top and inside! So delicious! The weeks after she kept bringing me a cupcake every once in a while and I got so curious to see this little shop where she got them!

Last week we finally went to Susie Cakes in Manhattan Beach and I loved it! They had various types of cakes, cookies and cupcakes and everything looked delicious and really really pretty!  Continue reading

My first Thanksgiving

Last week, I celebrated my first Thanksgiving. It was a wonderful experience, with friends that feel like family. I love how easily those people I celebrated it with let me into their family. I feel so comfortable with them and I’m incredibly thankful for having experienced it with them. I stayed in Palm Desert for the whole Thanksgiving week and it was so amazing! We had the yummiest food all week long! Continue reading
