Always a party favorite and I love hummus in my wraps with tons of vegetables. The only tricky, part of this recipe in cooking the sweet potato(or garnet yam for the west coast people) . You do not want it too mushy.

The food processor is a key tool to the success of the recipe. Chick peas, tahini, cumin and other spices complete the recipe.



Simply delicious! Ooh! Yes ! I said that already ! Well it is delicious !

It is a weekly staple in our home ! We love it !


Korean-Style Tempeh tacos

Tempeh Tacos with Coleslaw

I am discovering how much TEMPEH is delicious, filling and does not give you that “I ate soooo much ” feeling! The spices are once again key in the success of this recipe.

Discovery : Worcestershire sauce mixed with apple cider vinegar and some tomato paste make for a great tasty combo.  Wimages-9e never think of simply slicing some cabbage together with a shallot and nuts.

It is son easy to eat well! RIGHT !

Toasting or roasting nuts or seeds…sometimes nice to change things up. Lightly toasting can make the flavour explode to life! Try it! You can do this with any type of nut or seed. (tip from page 138)

The cole slaw with the dijon dressing is delicious!

What a great combo!

Who does not love chocolat chip cookies ? I do not know of anyone ! Anyways, this recipe is quite simple and you know it is going to taste good and be healthy with all the amazing ingredients.

“These are a favorite among many of my clients,including fitness expert and P90X™ creator Tony Horton.” – Melissa Costello

Discovery: CARDAMOM…never knew this existed until I started cooking with KarmaChow.

A delicious spice that is sweet and spicy all at the same time.

Makes 3 dozen. Invite friends over because you will not be able to resist them !

I added some goji berries to the mix just because I had them lying around! Really nice combo !

White bean soup

White bean soup with kale & garlic…delicious!

The best “Super immune boosting” soup ever! Garlic is great for the heart and immune system PLUS kale is one of the most nutrient rich food you can eat. Never had kale much before and today it is a staple in our home.

Soups makes the house smell warm and “comfy”.   This soup calls for “Lacinato” Kale. I could find it in my area. I used good old fashion kale or spinach!

Discovery: combining celery,onion,garlic first to the oil. I would always add the celery with the rest of the other veggies.  The spices are the magic. Who uses only salt and pepper  anymore?

The nutritional yeast adds a little too much sweetness for our tastebuds. I cut it down to 1/2 Tb

A delicious soup that everyone will love! IMG_1678


Chocolate truffles…OMG !

This recipe is simply to “die for”! The food processor is a must but I imagine a regular blender might also do the trick. I doubled the recipe because once you get a taste for it, you want more !  I was a little too generous with the cocoa butter but it turned out just right !

Discovery: Cocoa butter is white or cream color. The aroma from melting the butter fills the room with a sweet sweet flavor. I should for the next time take smaller truffles, to give the impression of more.

You cannot eat just one but you will feel satisfied after 2. It is such a healthy treat. All the phytonutrients in cocoa are just waiting to take your body to the next level !

My my firefighter buddies adored !

Cashew Stir Fry

Fire fighter approved…again ! Cashew stir fry with cashew creamy sauce !

Original recipe makes 4 servings. I double the creamy cashew sauce and tripled the veggies . This was delicious and a big success at the fire station. The flavor of the coconut oil really comes out and the spiciness from red pepper flakes is just right.  I used whole wheat curly pasta instead of the soba noodles or buckwheat noodles simply because I was feeding 9 people.  The cashew creamy sauce is very delicious and easy to make.  Chinese cabbage, bok choi and broccoli are some of these amazingly veggies in the recipe.

Veggies before the pasta !

AH! The smoothie..

Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

Life’s way of including all the good nutrients our bodies need in one glass.

This green  smoothie was my “mission” for Day 4 of Operation Feel Good with BodyHeart. I am a secret agent for 21 days. My “mission” is a  journey of making myself and others feel “the love” the Universe has to give through small gestures and thoughts. A fun thing to do !

PLUS this is one of the recipe in my fave cookbook of KarmaChowBonus !

The smoothie was delicious! Never imagine a banana, kale and avocado tasting so yummy!


  • My blender had a tough time with the ice and frozen banana.
  • 1 portion is huge! I am sure that we can share this with a friend.

This is especially good for you first thing in the morning, as it is alkalizing for the body. Ingesting alkaline foods regularly, such as leafy greens, helps our body to fight disease.

Now who doesn’t want that ?

Curious about BodyHeart, have a look see and join me in Operation Feel Good! February is such a difficult month for many, let us help them with kindness and love.
