Good Ol’ Southern Raspberry Sweet Tea (sweetened with Swerve!)

Did you guys have a go-to diner spot growing up? You know, the one that was a little sketchy, had the cheapest food with the largest servings, was open 24/7, and had really nice, older waitresses who probably smoked a lot in their youth and went to church every Sunday? I know we did, and…

Rosemary & Ginger Infused Lemonade (sugar-free)

Shit’s getting hot out in LA. I know it’s probably not appropriate to start off an article about food with the word “shit,” but if you live in Southern California and have stepped outside for more than 10 minutes, you feel me. And when shit gets hot, I’m out here fiending for cold beverages. You…

Sugar-Free French Vanilla Creamer (vegan & Plant Paradox friendly)

I admit, I’ve started to miss coffee creamers since cutting out sugar. It’s not the sweetness  or the flavors that I miss. Rather, it’s the simplicity of adding one thing to your coffee before it’s good to go. For the past couple of months, my habit’s been to heat up coconut milk on the stove…

Sugar-Free Avo Nog (Plant Paradox friendly)

Not to be confused with awkward nog, this drink is my take on my Uncle Jerry’s famous eggnog… well, famous to me at least.

Sweet & Salty Coffee Smoothie

What constitutes a better breakfast than some pre-chewed mush, am I right?!? In all actuality, that pre-chewed mush works to our benefit – when a smoothie such as this is ingested, less energy is required for digestion, meaning the body can use that energy on productive things, such as writing, doing that thing you’ve been putting off…
