Vanilla Chai Power Bars

Vanilla Chai Power Bars

I just got my hands on a FABULOUS vegetarian cookbook: Vegan Everyday by Douglas McNish, a vegan executive chef who has a strong commitment to health and organics. Published by Robert Rose Books, this cookbook is filled with 500 recipes that are bold, innovative, fresh and wonderful for vegans and non-vegans. You’ll find recipes for every occasion and every meal of the day. I love the Peach Cobbler, Mini Quinoa Croquettes, Singapore Summer Rolls, and these Vanilla Chai Power Bars. These energy bars are a great item to keep on hand for snacking on the go, or enjoy them as a quick breakfast with a cold glass of milk. Filled with millet, chia seeds and spices, these bars are too good! My kids went wild over these, and they are awesome for travel too. If you’re looking for puffed quinoa and millet, you can find them in most well stocked supermarkets and natural food stores. Enjoy and be sure to check out this amazing cookbook!

Sesame, Hemp and Carrot Slaw & Cookbook Giveaway

When I saw Chef Douglas McNish’s new cookbook, “Eat Raw, Eat Well”, I could not wait to check it out. This huge collection of 400 recipes appeals to newcomers and veterans of the raw food lifestyle. From breakfast to dessert, there is something for everyone and a great deal of information on preparing ingredients, nutrition and raw pantry essentials. I am thrilled to share this recipe for Sesame, Hemp and Carrot Slaw. Douglas says, “This take on classic coleslaw has virtually all the same flavors and textures but is much more nutritious because the healthy fats in the hemp seeds and hemp oil are much better for you than those contained in generic store-bought mayonnaise. This can serve as a crunchy addition on top of a green salad or as a meal on its own.”
