  • The first juice is my infamous beet, pomegranate and cherry juice 🥤 If you are looking for a full gut cleanse, well baby this is it. Make absolutely no plans for the evening after drinking two glasses of this😂 .
.

The second juice is spinach, apple and ginger, delicious is an understatement to this drink. Cheers to good health!
  • The level of cold it is outside simply makes no sense at all! I don’t get folks who believe in global warming, How Sway!?! How? .

Ok, lemme stop ranting and talk about this pot of delicious ova here. Vegan Roasted Veggie Pasta! It was so simple just use a pasta made with no eggs, season, (I used one pack of  sazon to flavor up) and roast zucchini, butternut squash, grape tomatoes and onions on 425 for about 15 minutes. Cook pasta, drain, reserve some of the pasta water about half of it, add vegan butter (soy free kind) canned fire roasted tomatoes and one vegetable bouillon cube. This will be your sauce. Take about 3 tablespoons of the sauce, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, stir until combined and add back into the sauce (this is to thicken up the sauce). Add pasta back in, add roasted veggies stir add some oregano, salt and pepper to taste adjust seasoning if you need to, squeeze a lemon wedge to finish it off and boom 💥
  • Ginger, Fennel, Orange = Medicine. Slice the ginger thin, cut your oranges in segments, julienne your fennel and squeeze the leftover orange parts for the juices. And my friends you have created a tasty bowl of pure cold-flu fighting medicine.
  • This was two years ago today, thanks Facebook for the reminder. I’m excited to do a few of these this season and I absolutely love seeing the varieties that are made from my beloved hometown New Orleans 💚💜💛 Happy Kings Day!
  • Divine is an understatement of how delicious this salad was. Arugula has a mildly spicy taste, it’s also known as rocket in some countries. Whatever you choose to call it these tasty green leaves instantly elevates a salad. Not to mention sweet pomegranate seeds and blackberries add texture and natural sweetness. Oh! And the dressing! To live for! Swipe for the recipe🥗 .

A simple spring mixed salad with sweet grape tomatoes on top of a buttery- toasted pecorino romano cheese crusted bread. Drizzle your salad with your fave vinaigrette, salt & pepper and enjoy 😉. Bonita, Bonita, Bonita...
  • Check out my story for this wonderful pasta dish! It’s was the bomb! I used @raoshomemade sweet eggplant sauce, so that saved me some cooking time. .

The pasta shell is stuffed with a sweet Italian sausage-mushroom ricotta-mozzarella filling, on top of a herbed Panko crusted eggplant. Parmesan and basil topped off with more sauce, the family was pleased 😄 #nobsfood
  • Chocolate Cupcakes 🍫 that’s all. Happy Saturday.
  • The roasted chicken I cooked two days ago is like a gift that keeps on giving! I shredded the chicken and added it as a topping to my quick-baked potatoes 🥔 Season some veggies in a delicious, herbaceous, zesty sauce 🤤 Check out my #instastory to see this fun meal come together like husband and wife (of the Bible) on their wedding night. ♥️
  • A great way to utilize left over roasted chicken—And making dinners stretch, is making loaded nachos. Get creative with your toppings I added smoked paprika fried corn, fresh cilantro, green onions and all kinds of wonderful spices. Remixed dinners are thee best! Happy Thursday foodie folks.

Copy Cat Zea’s Mediteranean Hummus Dip

In life, I believe there is a time when your body must reset. Whether it’s going vegan, juicing for a week straight, or adding a copious amount of fresh vegetables and herbs to your diet.

Hummus have become a popular go-to snack and with so many ready- made versions available, they’re not hard to find in stores. My version of hummus takes an ordinary store-bought hummus and transforms it into restaurant quality hummus dip!

Who knew by adding fresh ingredients such as:

  • Roasted Garlic Cloves

Can be so sophisticated?!

Bonita’s Simple, Fresh Fruit Salad

Salad season is upon us in a big way and if you’re like me I love-making the most out of it. A salad is not limited to just lettuce and tomato, fruits can be a spectacular salad hence making it a fruit salad.

Fruit

Colorful and delicious fruit salad.

What elevates this fruit salad is the wonderful dressing that accompanies it so well.

For the dressing I use one lime squeezed, half of a naval orange, agave nectar, cardamom. Simple and quite luscious.

This salad is ideal for any sort of gathering. Think a wedding, brunch gathering, a tea party, or in a big bowl at home on a Saturday morning. Tasty all by itself, but even more delightful as a topping on a nice slice of cake! Continue Reading…
