Fudge.

Drool.

They go hand in hand don’t they?? How can you think of rich, decadent, delicious fudge, and not drool… just a little?

This “drool worthy” fudge recipe comes from a VERY cool book that was sent to me by the lovely Marni Wasserman. Her new book, Plant-Based Diet for Dummies is nothing short of awesome - and you have a chance to win one today!

I don’t follow a completely plant-based diet, as I’d consider myself more of a Flexetarian and I still found this book incredibly helpful! Personally, I eat about 75% plant-based foods, and add in free-range eggs, lean meats, and fish to my diet. But, I definitely believe that people can thrive off of a totally plant-based diet, you just have to find what works for you!

So, if you have been thinking about making the shift to plant-based, this book is a MUST-HAVE!

In the book there are a ton of different chapters on how to implement a plant-based diet in your life. There’s no skimping on the information and Marni put it together methodically and easy-t0-follow.

First you’ll learn about what a Plant-Based Diet really is, the benefits of it, what foods make up the macro- and micronutrients, and step-by-step ways on how to easily and healthily transition into eating only plant-based foods.

Next comes the best part – delicious, amazing, super healthy plant-based recipes… including… FUDGE!

A mix of breakfasts, lunches, suppers, desserts, snacks, and sides/sauces/dips/dressings make up the recipe section. Trust me, you are going to want to try out these recipes, even if you are a self-proclaimed meat LOVER, you’ll still appreciate the creativity and deliciousness of these plant-based delights!

The last section gives a ton more information on how to dine out, eat plant-based during different stages of life, raise a plant-based family, and athletic performance on plant-based fuel!

Simple Seared Ahi Tuna Tacos (GF)

Something about summer always gives me a hankering for tacos! Fish tacos, chicken tacos, shrimp tacos, and vegan tacosΒ (thanks Deryn )! Every now and then our local Save-On-Foods gets Ahi Tuna, and I definitely have to splurge and go for it. Fish like this sure isn’t cheap in the middle of the prairies, and it [keep reading...]
