It's that most wonderfully festive time of the year! When decadent, richly hued Italian Spumoni cakes layered with pistachio cream, chocolate-hazelnut and cherry ice-cream step out dripping in ganache and festooned like royalty in crisp wafer crowns! Let me tell you, I felt like royalty simply having this gorgeousness lighting up my table... so beautiful it was difficult to slice into. However, once past it's exquisite beauty, a creamy slab of this luscious Spumoni Christmas Gateau is a divine flavor celebration fit for holiday Kings and Queens! Heavenly layers of pistachio cream, chocolate-hazelnut and cherry ice-cream studded with candied fruit, chopped pistachios & hazelnuts galore luxuriously dazzle the tastebuds in ultimate comfort and joy!

I know I've got a hit recipe on my hands when I can't stop eating it during the photo shoot! Every other snap I took I found myself being rewarding with yet another delicious No-Wheat Thin topped with Aged Treenut Cheese and sweet-tart Cranberry Relish on top.... SOOO GOOD! And perfect for holiday entertaining. This little trio is such a rockstar combo- however - these No-Wheat Thins are delicious enough to eat all by themselves, like chips. They even smell amazing! Seriously, their delicious aroma was why my photo shoot took 5 times longer than normal. I couldn't stop eating them as their wafts of pure yumminess kept tantalizing me. I had so much fun popping dozens of little cracker, cheese and cranberry relish bites into my mouth, it's amazing I had any product left to photograph :) Continue reading

Enter this raw vegan (yes, it's deliciously warm) version of one of StyleNectar's most popular dishes ever, Tom Yum Soup.

Nobody loves a creamy, delicious smoothie better than I do. So when Williams-Sonoma invited me to help kick off their upcoming "Smoothie Week" with a couple of my favorite "Not Your Everyday Smoothies" I was super excited! Last week I shared the delectable Chocolate Covered Matcha Smoothie. This week, I thought I'd jazz things up with a wonderfully colorful concoction... (continued) Continue reading

Cauliflower Popcorn is so addictive I challenge you to make it so far as to get yours into the dehydrator (or oven) for step 2... without eating it all first! This flavorful, smoky, cheesy, sweet-salty indulgence tastes phenomenal tossed up fresh... however, an hour or two in the dehydrator renders it crispy and warm with tantalizing aromas wafting throughout the kitchen so do try to hold out! This raw food yumminess is brimming with powerful life-force, enzymes, phytonutrients and vitamins galore. It's a snack that makes us feel as phenomenal as it... (continued) Continue reading

I've been super excited to share my method for Sauerkraut, and even better in my humble opinion, KIMCHI, for quite some time! Personally, I consider Kimchi to be Saurkrauts amped-up cousin. My methods for making the two are exactly the same with kimchi simply requiring a few additional veggies & spices to provide its gorgeous color and kick of hot, spicy flavor. In fact, I was fascinated to learn both sauerkraut and kimchi are Asian in origin. Although sauerkraut... (continued) Continue reading

I'm a meditator :) It's a daily practice for me. Simply start by sitting comfortably for 20 minutes a day watching your breath, noticing the thoughts as they come in, like clouds floating by, no judgement. Just notice them then let them go. Meditation happens to you. Feel free to read this post I wrote on the subject: or watch this video: Much Love, Juliane

There's a reason we're drawn to walking barefoot on the beach, plunging our hands into damp soil gardening, or simply falling asleep on the grass... it's why yoga is practiced with bare feet and Qi Gong is practiced outdoors ... and it all has to do with a concept called Earthing, or, Grounding.
