A Fresh Dille

my new go-to dessert

Posted in FOOD, VEGAN by clairedille on February 14, 2009

This post is going to be photos for the majority, due to the fact that I am trying to catch up on all things fashion-week related. For now, I leave you with the fabulous Candle Cafe Vegan Chocolate Mousse Pie.





Both of my parents agree that this is one decadent dessert. The mousse is only sweetened with maple syrup and in the crust, spelt flour is used. Although the recipe is for 6-8 servings, I believe it will take three of us four days to finish it, or 12 servings. Delicious.

Some other eats…


The always delicious ezekiel sprouted english muffins with raw almond butter and pumpkin butter topped off with banana and flax. on the side, I finished off the banana with some raspberries.

After a pretty extensive run, I came back completely famished and the only thing that I could think of eating quickly was a Tasty Bite Indian Dish, specifically the Spinach with soy beans. It wasn’t fabulous but fulfilled my hunger with a side of raw veggies and roasted red pepper hummus.


My dinner was not too exciting, but my all time favorite green was involved (Kale!), as well as wheatberries. Snack usually involves fresh organic fruit or a larabar.

Tomorrow I will show you some of my favorite fall/winter 2009 garments.
