Human beings have an intrinsic and powerful connection to sunlight that evolved over thousands of years. Before the advent of electricity we were bound by the constraints of daylight, and our sleep cycles followed suit. But today, electricity and technological stimulation allow our minds and bodies to be active after sundown, which can wreak havoc on our health. Many hormonal processes in our body are literally hardwired to be orchestrated by sunlight and the absence of sunlight. It is no surprise that adhering to a normal sleep pattern is therefore highly important to maintaining optimal health.

Vegan, mostly raw, and free of refined sugars & gluten, these chocolate peanut butter caramel bars are amazing! These have four layers - a crust, peanut butter, caramel, and chocolate. They make a pretty big batch, so it's worth the few steps to make each layer. You won't be sorry! Plus, after you've made them once, you'll be much faster at whipping up a batch the next time. Speaking from experience...
Quarantine Cooking means two things to me: comfort & nourishment. Staying inside, missing our friends, families, activities, and natural daylight feels weird and takes an emotional toll on all of us. So many of us are cooking more homemade meals out of necessity, but also because we have more time for kitchen projects these days. At the same time, we are trying to support our health and build up our immune systems. Enter...delicious vegan creamy pasta dish with loads of mushrooms and herbs!
