Be Sweet, Be Hot, and Be Original Kumana Avocado Sauce!

Happy Sunday, kittehs! Last weekend was a complete slice of avocado sauce heaven!  If you have never heard of avocado sauce, you must give Kumana’s Be Sweet, Be Hot, and Be Original vegan avocado sauces a try!  Each bottle is made of 2/3 avocados!

Kumana’s avocado sauces come in three outstanding flavors: Be Sweet, Be Original, & Be Hot!

Thanks to Live Talent Now I was blessed with the opportunity to model with Kumana at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, CA!  Kumana founders, Francisco Pavan (far right, photo below) & Roberto Pavan (far left, photo below), grew up in Venezuela and have incorporated their secret Venezuelan family recipe, chalked full of tasty spices, into their sublime avocado sauces!

If you are on the go x365, you will definitely appreciate how fast you can add some tasty avocado sauce to your favorite dishes and snacks, likeeee avocado toast.  You don’t have to spend the time you don’t have, peeling and slicing up that avocado to strategically place on your bread.  You can just drizzle on your favorite avocado sauce, devour it, and be out the door!  Also, you can’t beat the fact that it’s only 5 calories per teaspoon, 0 grams of carbs, and 0 grams of sugar.  What?!! IMG_2049.jpgI go through a bottle of this stuff in less than a wk! Lately I have been adding it to my toast, chili…IMG_2012 2 and even my homemade ramen! Feel free to add it to your Tuesday Tacos, Monday Meatballs, or Friday Fajitas! IMG_2029 I cannot wait to use them as a marinade for one of my favorite entrées: baked salmon. If I had to recommend a Kumana flavor to try, I would say to try them all.  They are that delicious.  If you are on the hunt for a bottle of their avocado goodness, they are currently available on Amazon and will be sold in Safeway stores in Northern Cali in July 2018.  I will be picking up a few bottles in Norcal on my next road trip back home for sureeee!!! Have a great week, loves!! ❤ ❤ ❤ ~KelleIMG_2059

Happy Holidays & Thanksgiving Day Norcal Vlog!

Season greetings, everyone!  I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving with your friends and family!  We spent the holiday in Norcal and got in as much relaxing and eating as our tummies would allow!  Between the Norwegian quiche, brussels sprouts corn bread stuffing, caramelized onion dip,  deviled eggs, & cheesy bacon dip, I was in a food coma in no time!  One of my favorite things to do with leftover turkey is to add melted cheese, sea salt & pepper to it.  So delish!!!  May the holidays bring you lots of joy, laughter, yummy noms, & good fun.  I also hope you enjoy my Thanksgiving Day Vlog.  Have a blessed week, loves! ❤ ❤ xoxo ~Kelle

Chocolate Coco Peanut Butter Dip | Superfood Style

Today I whipped up s’more of my Chocolate Coco Peanut Butter dip in my blender! This time I added cacao nibs to this yummy superfood recipe.  Feel free to increase the amounts of your favorite ingredients in this raw and fiber-ful dish.

This recipe has a long shelf life when stored in an airtight container, so it won’t be going bad anytime soon. This dip is great paired with fresh fruit, so delish on crackers & sandwiches, and a great healthy frosting on cakes & cupcakes.

Basically: it’s my version of healthy Nutella!  I hope you guys enjoy it!

 

Ingredients:

2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp Navitas Naturals raw cacao powder
2 tbsp raw peanut butter
2 tbsp flax seeds
1 tbsp Splenda brown sugar
cacao nibs (also optional)

Blend all ingredients with pulse mode until desired consistency.

The Daily Vitamin’s Dr. Oz Green Juice Blendoff!

Hi loves!  The weather in LA is supposed to be amazing this weekend!  It has been feeling a lot like summer in spring here, so why not start the weekend with a uber healthy Dr. Oz green juice detox!?  Learn more about juicing in a blender in our latest The Daily Vitamin Dr. Oz Green Juice Blendoff video!   In this video we put high-end blenders to the test to see which blender could blend the best Dr. Oz green juice!

His recipe is great for boosting energy naturally and for getting super glowy skin!  I personally prefer juicing with a blender over a juicer, because I love pulp.  When using a traditional juicer, pulp gets extracted, so you miss out on all the amazing nutrients that pulp has to offer.  Also, blenders are so much easier to clean! Hehe 🙂  Please be sure to leave us any questions or comments you might have about our blendoff!  Have a beautiful and nutritious weekend, everyone! XO ~Kelle

Dr. Oz Green Juice Recipe:

1/4 Cup Parsley

1 Cup Spinach
1/2 Cucumber
1 Tbsp Lime Juice
1/2 inch Ginger
2 Celery Sticks
2 Cups of Ice

Tonight’s Truffled Quiche

It is an understatement to say that I love truffle oil!  So tonight I decided to make a truffled quiche.  It really is one of the quickest & easiest things to make, and doesn’t require many ingredients.  All you need are:

a few handfuls of greens

1.5 cups milk

3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese

parmesan

1 tbsp white truffle oil

oregano

minced garlic

fresh ground pepper

sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. IMG_6405 Add the greens, eggs, milk, grated cheese into a baking dish.  IMG_6426Whisk everything together.  IMG_6404Then mix in the truffle oil, few sprinkles of oregano, minced garlic, fresh ground pepper, & sea salt.  The sharp cheddar cheese I used is from Petaluma’s The Creamery Store Cheese & I used Napa Valley Wine Country Kitchens White Truffle Oil.

 I like a lot of spices so I am not too light when adding the seasonings 🙂  IMG_6427 Then I place the lid on the dish and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.  I like to check if it is fully cooked by dipping a toothpick into the quiche.  If the toothpick is still a bit watery, it just needs to cook for a little while longer.  When fully cooked, it’s time to remove.  Then I top with parmesan! Enjoy! Happy Sunday!  XO ~Kelle
