A Little Bit About Us

Our goal is to make affordable, delicious, healthy food that nourishes our souls as well as our bodies. We love new flavors as well as old favorites. It's important, for us, not to place too many restrictions and be as free and simple as we can when it comes to our food. We have no fancy equipment or expensive gadgets (although when we're wrestling with our dinosaur blender/smoothie maker we have both thought how nice it'd be to have a functioning one.. lol). We love each other more than anything and making food together is rewarding on every level.

Sunrise Health Slaw

Our friends over at Sunrise Living have been experimenting with yummy vegan dishes and here is one of our favorites.  Their healthy summer slaw is delicious and can be served as a side dish and promises to be a hit at any family barbecue this summer!!  http://www.sunriseseniorliving.com/blog/categories/senior-eats.aspx

Serves 4 to 6

The heat of summer calls for light, refreshing dishes. At Sunrise Senior Living, many of our seniors love coleslaw, an old-fashioned American favorite. While the traditional recipe is heavy on the mayonnaise , we’ve opted for a lighter, more healthful version that’s perfect to serve at this summer’s outdoor barbeques and picnics!

Tangy, and with just a touch of sweetness, our Sunrise Health Slaw is sure to be a hit at your next gathering. Using mustard as the flavor base instead of high-fat mayonnaise keeps it more waistline-friendly, too!


-          shredded coleslaw mix – 4 cups
-          medium red bell pepper, seeded and small diced – ½ each
-          green onions, sliced thin – ½ bunch
-          red wine vinegar – 2 tbsp
-          vegetable oil or coconut oil – 1 ½ tbsp
-          vegan cane sugar or maple syrup – 1 tbsp
-          Dijon mustard – 1 tsp
-          celery seed – ¼ tsp


-          Toss together the coleslaw mix, bell pepper, and green onions in a medium bowl.
-          In a separate bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, vegetable oil, sugar, mustard, and celery seed.
