I love making healthful yet fun snacks for my little guy. Anything to get him to eat clean-eating recipes. I don’t keep a lot of packaged snacks in our home, so I try to make some snacks to break the … Continue reading



I don’t keep processed snacks in the house because they have NO nutritional value and they are quite addicting and toxic. Excitotoxins, food dyes, corn syrup and a myriad of other things are often added to packaged snacks. These ingredients … Continue reading

Clean Eating Cherry Banana Oatmeal!

I thought I would change things up a bit this morning, while making breakfast for my son. So I added cherries to his oatmeal for a little zing!  Antioxidant-rich cherries are also loaded with beta-carotene and vitamin C. To boost the protein content, I added some organic hemp seeds. Let me know how yours turns out, I would love to hear from you!


1 cup of organic rolled oats (not instant)

1 1/2 cups of filtered water

1/4 cup of plant based milk

1/4 cup of cherriesCherry and Hemp Oatmeal

1/4 tsp. of pure vanilla extract

1 Tbs. of organic raw shelled hemp seeds

1 Tbs. of raw honey

1 banana (for topping)


Combine oats, milk , and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat, add cherries and vanilla extract and let simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes. Right before serving, stir in the hemp seeds and honey and add some banana for topping. I wait to add these ingredients so the heat doesn’t reduce their nutritional value 🙂 My son added some cinnamon after I cut up some banana for him.

Bon appetite!

Tis the Season to be Healthy!

Veggie Fried RiceOkay, so we all know this is the time of year we eat a little of this, and a little of that. And then suddenly “this and that” turns into five pounds! Try my yummy vegetable fried rice fused with carotenoid filled veggies and Asian spices!

Vegetable Fried Rice

1 cup of brown organic rice

2 cups of water

2 tsp. Of VegeBase

4 baby bok choy chopped

4 large mushrooms sliced (2 cups)

1 carrot grated

4 scallions chopped

2 garlic cloves minced

3 organic eggs

3 Tbsp. Of Bragg Liquid Amino

2 Tbsp. of mirin (rice cooking wine)

1 Tbsp. of sesame oil

1 tsp. of freshly grated ginger

Dash of Herbamare Asian Blend (optional)


Combine rice, water and Vegebase in a sauce pan. Bring to boil, lower and simmer for 50 minutes. (It is better to cook the rice the night before. Cold rice works best in fried rice.)

Sauté the bok choy with 2 tablespoons of water for several minutes, on medium heat in a large pan.   I use water to reduce the calories and to avoid the food sticking to the pan. Do not use too much water or you will end up steaming the vegetables.

Add the mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes. Then add the carrots, scallions, garlic, and ginger.

Add the cooked rice and mix gently. Make a “well” in the center of your pan and pour the sesame oil and then the egg. Stir the eggs gently in the middle, making scrambled eggs. When they are almost done, mix them in with the rice mixture and let sit a few minutes to cook the egg. Make it completely vegan, and leave out the eggs. I’m Chinese, so it’s only natural for me to make it with eggs!

Pour in the Bragg Liquid Amino, mirin, and then Herbamare. Mix gently and serve.

Bon apetite!
