Chocolate Avocado Mousse with Vanilla Cacao Nib and Lemon Verbena Nectar

Who doesn’t love Juice Generation? It has become the go-to spot for not only some of the best juices, but some of the best raw-vegan eats as well. We fell in love with one of their desserts, the Chocolate Avocado Mousse with Vanilla Cacao Nib and Lemon Verbena Nectar, and the folks over at Juice Generation were kind enough to share the recipe! Who knew avocado in dessert could be so delicious?

Chocolate Avocado Mousse with Vanilla Cacao Nib and Lemon Verbena Nectar (serves 4-6 people; cookies require 48 hours of prep time)

2 avocados, pitted and peeled
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup agave
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
pinch of sea salt

Place avocado, cacao powder, agave, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt in food processor. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and chill in refrigerator 30 minutes to an hour prior to serving.

Vanilla Cacao Nib Biscuits
2 cups raw cashews
1 cup chopped, pitted dates
1/2 tsp. ground vanilla bean
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
pinch of sea salt

Place cashews in food processor and chop into a fine meal. Add dates, vanilla, lemon zest, and salt. Pulse in food processor until dough forms. Scoop 2 tablespoons of cookie batter onto nonstick Teflex sheets. Form into rounds 1/2-inch thick.
Dehydrate cookies 24 hours at 115 degrees for 24 hours. Flip over cookies directly onto plastic netting and dehydrate another 24 hours at 115 degrees to dry. Cookies should be crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside.

The Health App That Will Get You In Shape

Getting in shape might be easier than you think

After a long holiday break of lounging and relaxing getting back into shape can seem like a lot of work (especially after the marathon of holiday cookies we had!). But the new health and fitness app, Nudge, makes it easy and fun to get back on track to start the new year off with confidence.

The app gathers and indexes health information including nutrition, hydration, fitness, sleep and energy level into a convenient score, called the Nudge Factor. This score can be shared with friends (or the hubby!) for friendly competition as you compete for the best score…hey, some good healthy competition never hurt anyone.

And, for extra-help, Nudge has “clubs” like the adventure club and the stress club where you can find tips and healthy recipes to kickstart your health challenge. The cool [...]

Keep Your Skin Healthy

Time to shake things up

New season, new skincare routine. If you’re looking to reboot your system - and aren’t we all this time of year - get yourself on the right foot with a season-appropriate routine. To find out just how to do that we spoke with Dr. Ruth Tedaldi and ascarfreeme.com, a new online social community dedicated to helping people who suffer from scarring associated with acne, to get tips on what we can do now. Here’s what she had to say!

· Change Your Wardrobe, Change Your Skin Care Routine—just as your attire and day-to-day activities change with the colder months, so will your skin and its needs. Cold, dry air and winds can cause skin to lose moisture and vital natural oils. Similarly, cranked up heaters can also cause skin to dry out and become tight or itchy. Consult with a dermatologist to develop a personalized winter care plan

· Nourish & Hydrate—integrate nourishing and hydrating products into your skin care regimen, such as richer and creamier body lotion or concentrated lip balm

· Combat Heaters—combat heaters and dry winds by switching to milder soaps and detergents that aren’t as harsh on skin, especially when laundering bed linens

· Scale Back on Topical Acne Medications—if your skin is peeling and causing you to scratch your skin, it may be time to scale back on topical acne medications. Uncomfortable peeling and flaking as a result of acne fighting creams and ointments can lead to constant itching and unwanted acne scarring

· Use noncomedogenic products—For acne [...]

The Piper Protocol

Hollywood’s best kept secret

Tracy Piper, the author of the just-launched new book The Piper Protocol, is best known as Hollywood’s best kept secret. She’s worked with stars like Kate Upton, Carla Gugino, and Brooke Shields and her new book offers a four week program that focuses on your internal digestive fitness resulting in phenomenal external beauty benefits.

Tracy’s cleanse program not only will help with weight loss goals, but she shows her readers how to be not just more beautiful on the outside but how to be internally fit. Internal fitness, she explains, is the condition of having healthy, efficient, functional organs, tissues, and cells. It is having the digestive system toned and in good working order. It is having the body in balance, as nature intended. When you are internally fit, external beauty is part of the package. Of course most of this is easier said and than done, but Tracy breaks it down into a structured plan to help us make incremental changes.

What we love most [...]

What The Fork Are You Eating?

A new must read

What The Fork Are You Eating? Is a fascinating new book by nutritionist Stefanie Sacks MS CNS CDN. It demystifies terms like “natural,” “grass-fed,” or “free-roaming” to help us figure out what the heck we are actually eating!

Sacks helps outline an action plan for our pantry and plate and offers a “nutritional prescription” for culinary healing. As parents it’s so important for us to have all the tools we can get our hands on to help fuel healthy lives for our little ones and this books allows us to do so in an easy, accessible manner. We especially love all the DIY pantry, fridge, and freezer strategies. Best of all Sacks is a mother of two young sons so she [...]
