Oh. my. goodness. These Rustic Raw Vegan Caramel Apples might be the favorite thing I've ever eaten to date... WOW! Like you've got to make these asap. So simple. So incredibly delicious. MMMMMMmmmmmmm. Let's just say I've ALWAYS had a thing for caramel... and this raw vegan version is way yummier! Smear it all over a crisp apple, roll it in your favorite toppings and then drizzle chocolate ganache all over - the ULTIMATE! Forget that these are healthy, they taste BETTER than anything you've ever had. Forget that they're filled with amazing nutrition and life force that is going to make you feel and look phenomenal, cause the pure utter enjoyment in every bite is enough on its own. Crisp, juicy apple wrapped in thick, gooey caramel, with a light crunch of chopped walnuts and dark, dark chocolate ganache... (continued) Continue reading

Mmmm... this warming yumminess is so soothing, delicious and comforting before bed I find myself going to bed earlier just cause I can't wait to make it.

As I sit here in my mobile office, I am thoroughly enjoying this fabulously delicious Banana Nut Branola alongside my daily thermos of Kusmi BB Detox Green Tea. This raw vegan snack is crispy, sweet and totally decked out with the gorgeous superfood power of Goji's, Dried Apricots, Sprouted Almonds, Pecans, Buckwheat... plus a bit of Golden Flax to make our skin glow and tresses shine! I call it Branola aka Brittle + Granola cause you can either break it into granola or leave it in rustic shaped brittle for no fuss early morning (or any time of day snacking) retrieval :) 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

Gee, I've had a bit of a sweet tooth lately haven't I? Hey, knowing these delicious treats are all so incredibly good for me... why not make them all the time! I just love having a little piece of something after dinner or with my tea in the afternoon. Salted Caramel Nut Butter Cups are as heavenly as they look and delicious as they sound. They bring to mind a certain Easter candy whose first name rhymes with Bradbury... chocolate covered ooey-goey sweetness - minus the guilt and with all the glow! Check it out... 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: http://www.stylenectar.com/stylenectar/2013/01/macaccinos-meditation-more.html or watch this video: http://www.stylenectar.com/stylenectar/2013/12/spirituality-a-vintage-find-an-anti-aging-tonic.html 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. The Benefits of Earthing Essentially, if you're too busy to read through the forthcoming explanation, go... (continued) Continue reading

If we love, we have and feel love. If we’re kind, we have and feel kindness. Contrary to what conditioning tells us, we only ever have our own experience—people, places, and circumstances truly are irrelevant. Any of it can be icing on the cake, but they’re never the cake! - Cheri Huber Every problem has a gift for you in its hands. - Richard Bach The soul always knows what to do to heal itself....

Every so often, I'll stumble upon a game changer smack dab in the middle of writing a post on the very subject. Today was just one of those moments as I have just completely erased this entire post, to start from scratch after making not one, but two new discoveries! A bit of background... This week's Sprouted Forbidden Rice Salad with Cranberries & Pecans incorporated an amazing and simple sprouting technique I've been excited to share with you for some time. Sprouting or "blooming" rice is a simple and fascinating way to achieve a beautifully soft, fluffy textured rice without ever having to turn on the hot stove! It's a super cool process wherein ...

This simple and delicious recipe takes full advantage of local farmers' markets, currently overflowing with the plumpest, juiciest ears of succulent corn. Golden jewels so honey-sweet and tender they're best fresh off the cob... *PS. Do you spot my napkin (below) on which a vintage letter from Mark Twain is printed? More on this in my personal comments after the recipe below :) Continue reading
