Creamy Cashew Cheese

Cashew cheese is great stuff! You can use it on anything you would want melted cheese on. It holds consistency well and is a great substitute for cheese. Plus, it’s loaded with protein and healthy fats. Below is a recipe that I like to use when making Italian themed food like pizza or I also use it to make some awesome quesadillas.
You will need:
2 cups Raw Cashews
4 tbsp. Olive Oil
3 Medium Cloves of Garlic
1/3 cup Onion (chopped)
1/2 tbsp. Onion Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
Prep: Soak your raw cashews in water over night.
Strain your raw cashews and pull out the blender. Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth… you may have to help the blender stir as it goes along… should be very thick. After you’re done blending you’re ready to enjoy!
Drizzle it over veggies, top a pizza, or get creative and let me know what you enjoy eating it with.

Eggplant Mini Pizzas

One of my favorite recipes is:

Eggplant Mini Pizzas

You Need:


Marinara Sauce of choice

Chopped Pizza Toppings of Choice

Cashew Cheese


I like to take the marinara sauce and just mix it with all my toppings until it's a nice thick, chunky consistency. Spread the marinara mix onto your eggplant which has been sliced into 1/4in. thick rounds. On top of that, spread a generous amount of your favorite cashew cheese. Finally, and the hardest part, put your mini pizzas in the dehydrator and play the waiting game until your pizzas are the texture you want... I dehydrate for about 4 hours before I start taking them out to eat.

They turn out great! The cheese is thick and creamy and the eggplant turns crispy like thin dough if given enough time to dehydrate. Hope you enjoy! Love, Peace, and Candy Grease!

Extra Awesome Apple Sauce

This recipe is great for picky children. It's fun, yummy, and more nutritious than ordinary apple sauce!

You will need:
4 Apples
1cup Mixed Berries (Frozen is good)
1 Whole Carrot (chopped)

   Take your 4 Apples, 1 cup Mixed Berries, and carrot and put them in a food processor or blender. Blend until it is the texure you like. Add cinnamon to taste. Enjoy!

2-4 servings
Best when served chilled

Soy Soy Soy

Many people that start a vegan or vegetarian diet start eating soy like it's going out of style. While soy beans are healthy in moderation and soy protein is easily absorbed, too much soy can do harm to your health. Concentrated soy bean products like tofu or soy lecithin are the least healthy of soy products, especially soy lecithin. One problem is that soy in America is highly genetically modified, which can decrease pancreatic function when consumed. Other problems arise with the thyroid gland in people that use soy as a staple... basically, it becomes hard for your body to regulate it's weight. Eating soy in moderation will keep any side effects at bay. So when looking for a protein boost, why not try spinach or kale which are both healthy and delicious....and can be grown most anywhere by anyone. So cut back on that soy consumption (ie.: tofu, soy milk, energy bars, etc.:) and help win the battle over GMO at the same time. Love, Peace, and Candy Grease.
