Sunwarrior Classic Plus Protein Powder Review & Giveaway + Brandi’s New York Style Cheesecake

    In the last few months I’ve had the pleasure of trying out a new product line from Sunwarrior. They’d like to offer you each a 1 in 20 chance to win some of their best stuff along with a swanky Sunwarrior blender bottle.  Cool!! Just click here to enter to win now through May 31st. “Organic Certified Classic Plus builds on Sunwarrior’s original rice protein by adding in the amino acid balancing effects of peas, chia seeds, quinoa, and amaranth. This superfood combination still relies heavily on the gentle nature of whole-grain brown rice, but with a hefty dose of the strength that has made Warrior Blend so popular. Raw, plant-based, and powerful, Classic Plus gives you that little extra you want and need. You’ll love the way it tastes, but how it makes you feel is really why we call it Plus. “   I’ve used both the Vanilla and Chocolate flavors now in 10 – 12 different flavors of smoothies and I really love the taste.  It blends smoothly, has great sweetness without a lot of sugar and really makes a great start to my day, my workout and even my desserts as you’ll see here.…

Yes, I’m back home to boring old D. C. again……….but wait!  I can dig into one of my favorite lunches again, yes!     I hope that you were able to catch Nancy’s Breakfast In Bed-Fest entry this week.  She really was pleased to be joining so many fabulous Vegan bloggers, a bit nervous maybe too?  Probably not, but grateful anyway to be included in the bunch.  She’s got a wonderful breakfast spread for her entry.  Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already.

Baby Kale Creamy Coconut Detox Smoothie

Baby Kale Creamy Coconut Detox Smoothie

One year ago I gobbled up a  bowl of this:    Kale and White Bean Soup My Kale saga continues this October in a much more chilled state.  This baby Kale mixes with creamy coconut and berries and blends into my favorite smoothie of the season.  Its detoxifying properties are perfect to gin up the body’s healthy state prior to those Holiday meals just around the corner.  Plus, it tastes great.  I hadn’t used any ‘baby’ Kale until now…tons of baby Spinach but not Kale. Who would have ever thought that these beautiful delicate little leaves were related to the stuff thrown onto so many restaurant plates as an awful garnish?  It really seems like a different animal.  I’ve been nibbling on the fresh baby leaves since I got it home this week. It mixes its sweetness in with the creamy coconut to make a rich, thick & satisfying drink, loaded with good stuff! Baby Kale Coconut Cream Detox Smoothie 1 cup Baby Kale, 1 cup unsweetened Coconut shreds, 1 cup mixed berries (frozen), 1 cup sliced banana (frozen, about 2 medium),         2 Tbs.
