Liquid Chocolate Art

Posted by rosanne walsh on Thursday, August 21, 2014, In : The Art of Healthy Eating 
You may have heard by now that chocolate is actually good for you - that is, the variety that is raw (less processed since heat has not been applied which otherwise degrades much of the health benefits) and dark (70% or higher in cacao) it ranks high in anti oxidants as well as contains omega 6 fatty acids and even vitamin C. Following is a great recipe for a raw chocolate sauce that can be served alongside any fruit or dessert to jazz it up and even add some extra nutrients. Try filling up c...

Posted by rosanne spinali walsh on Monday, January 28, 2013, In : The Art of Healthy Eating 
In Roman times, the strawberry was a symbol for Venus, the Goddess of Love, because of its heart shape and red color. But it makes for more than just a pretty plate - according to an article written last year in the Wall Street Journal, "Strawberries have the potential to prevent esophageal cancer...researchers, led by Ohio State University, were able to show that freeze-dried strawberries slowed the growth of dysplastic, or precancerous, lesions in about 30 people who consumed the fruit for ...

4. Promote cancer cell death

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

Posted by rosanne spinali walsh on Monday, November 12, 2012, In : The Art of Healthy Eating 

Hard to believe something so delicous and decadent  could be raw, vegan, gluten free, and so good for you. I definitely did not mind giving my girls this for dessert tonight. Avocados are high in oleic acid, (known to protect against breast cancer) folate (which helps prevent heart disease) as well as vitamin E- great for overall health. Dark chocolate and vanilla are both rich in anti oxidants, which helpt to defend against cancer. For a variation, layer with fresh berries and slivered almon...

Spread cream cheese in the shape of a ghost onto whole grain toast for a healthy Halloween snack.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Brown Rice Crispy Treats

Posted by rosanne spinali walsh on Tuesday, September 18, 2012, In : The Art of Healthy Eating 
Growing up, Rice Krispie Treats were always the go-to quick, easy, no bake, kiddo crowd pleasing dessert to make at home. We have come a long way since then and learned much about the difference between good grains (those that are organic and high in fiber) and bad (processed white GMO based) and their impact on our health. I am sure Kellog's meant well when they promoted the recipe that would make their name sake cereal so popular - meanwhile they are rolling in profits from selling nutritio...
