Salmon and Shrimp Ramen Salad Bento

Lemon is the standard brightner for fish. But yuzu (Japanese citrus) is fantastic, too! For summer bentos, cold ramen noodles serve as a beautiful base for salmon and shrimp. Add a few vegetables and you've got an easy balanced meal in a bento box.  


Healthy California Style Ramen Bento

Kenko in Japanese means health. Ramen is a perfect base for a healthy California style ramen bento!  Especially if the vegetable ramen package from Japan promotes Kenko.

Healthy Delectable Carrot Cake Dessert #GlutenFree

The gluten-free recipe below for carrot cake bakes up into a moist but firm cake. (Use the same amount of regular flour if gluten is not a concern for you.) The chopped nuts and fresh grated carrots add wholesome goodness. The spice in the cake does compliment cream cheese frosting. To keep it healthy, I refrained my frosting enamored self from going to town. But a little bit doesn’t hurt, right?

Better than Pumpkin Pie Vegan Coffee Cake

Better than Pumpkin Pie Vegan Coffee Cake. It’s perfect for brunch and will be done almost before you can say bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!

The pumpkin is not overly pronounced and the subtle cinnamon smooch lingers on the lips. Demerara sugarcoated pecans topping contrasts with the soft but dense cake. The balance of flavors and textures are sublime. Why, it’s almost a vegan fairy tale sort of cake.
