  1. I love your recipes!. Can you make a recipe for low carb/sugar free or low sugar candied yams with marshmallows recipe and a totally sugar free jello recipe. Most natural jello recipes have juice or fruit which still has a lot of sugar in it. I thought maybe putting in a Stevia or Xylitol drink instead of juice – any ideas?.

  2. Hi Jessica! I love your website. It’s so creative and I am excited to find new ways to eat healthy.
    Just was wondering where you purchase the majority of your pantry staples. I find it difficult to find healthy products lately.

    Thanks!

  3. Jessica,

    Hello again! As I was searching the internet for new dessert recipes, I stumbled upon this beauty:

    http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/dicks-bakery-san-jose#FfKR-MvaDNc8HspFSaL_FQ

    Apparently the restaurant serves it in multiple flavors. Any of them look delicious to me! I’d never heard of burnt almond cake (sounds like an accident 😉 before today, but all the reviewers are raving about it. So, here is my wish: I wish for this amazing dessert to be healthy and maybe even gluten-free so that I can share it with my step-mother. I found the following recipe online and with the custard, powdered sugar, buttermilk, butter, eggs, flour, etc…I have no idea where to start the substitutions.

    Ideas?? I guess I’ll have to try the real thing first to do a taste comparison. Maybe I can make it and give it away after a small taste. lol.

    Have a great day!!!

  4. Hi Jessica!
    Wow let me just say I absolutely love your blog. I also have a food blog and just began last spring in my second year at college. I just found you and have been looking through recipes like crazy..they are all so fun! Could you possibly look at my blog and let me know if you would like me to guest post for you? I would love to guest post or even let you feature a recipe of mine! Thanks in advance for your time.

    xoxo,
    Sarah Grace

  5. Hi Jessica,
    I found your site through Pintrest and I really love it! A reader recommended one of your recipes for my recipe of the week section(with a link to your site)
    I’m contacting you to offer you a guest post on my website. I have been searching for a nutritional scientist that has a wide array of recipes and I love that you have vegan recipes. If you are interested & available to write a post it would just include the importance of a healthy balanced diet, what types of foods are best to eat and what times, (breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dinner) and any other relevant info you would like to include. Along with your post I would include a short bio about you, a link back to your site, and up to 3 photos if you wish. Current contributors of my site also add the link to their sites or through facebook. I started my facebook page so its still building but I have a regular number of readers on my site.
    Please let me know if you are interested, there is no expiration to this offer I am always looking for new contributirs.
    I look forward to speaking wit you,

    • Hi Sophia!
      Thanks, I’m so glad you found my site too! 🙂
      I haven’t done any guest posts before because it’s totally nerve-wracking to me, and I’m super busy with school and keeping up with the blog :/
      Also, I am not a Registered Dietician yet, however, there are plenty of other RD bloggers out there who you should contact for guest posts!
      Have a great week 🙂

  7. I want to make your healthy maple syrup but don’t have Stevia in any form other than individual packets.  Any idea how many I would use when making your recipe? Could I use Splenda? I have it in several forms. 

  8. I was wondering if you have ever seen a comparison between using/making the vanilla extract (alcohol free) versus just grinding the bean and using it as a powder. Seems quicker and more to the point. I’ve seen the conversion 1/2 tsp powder vs. 1 tsp vanilla extract. Thanks! BTW, I studied Dietetics at Michigan State years ago. Never officially used the degree, but only in the last 8 years started going raw and that opened a whole new world they did not and I understand do not teach in academia. Just FYI. Nikkea

  9. I have a question, is the vanilla bean paste the “pulp” or the liquid.  I made it and then made the coffee sweetener, but my sweetener is very runny – definitely not something I would serve like honey.  It tastes good, but I feel like honey.  I did make mine with vegetable gycerin – so maybe that’s why.  The pulp part actually tastes pretty good, do you ever use that in anything?  Thanks!

    • The vanilla bean paste is the liquid that gets strained out from all the pureed pulp. I threw away the pulp but I’m sure you get use it to infuse vanilla flavor in coffee, tea, or any liquid of some sort. I’d probably place it into a nut milk bag so the fibers can’t get out, and leave it to soak a big batch of something for a little bit. Good idea, I should do that next time! 😀

  10. Ok so I have looked all over your blog and can’t find your guilt free pb fudge recipe…I bought all the ingredients and went to make it and can’t find the recipe.

  11. Hey, I found some recipes that you’re just gonna love! http://www.atastylovestory.com/the-famous-brilliant-black-bean-chocolate-cake/ Just substitute erithrytol, monkfruit in the raw, and brown rice syrup for the sugar and all is well. http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/spice-cake In here, I substituted barley and quinoa flour for 2/3 of the all purpose flour, and I substituted mokfruit and erithrytol for sugar.

  12. Hello,

  15. Hello Jessica! I appreciated your heartfelt personal Part II blog. I was unaware that you had a new book “Naughty or Nice” and purchased it as a way to “thank you” for all the hard work you put into your blog. I’m looking forward to receiving the book and can’t wait to get started with some recipes. Thank you again for all the hard work you do!

    • Hi Sandi!
      Thank you so much for reading through Part II of the series. I’ve been blogging for nearly FIVE years now, I thought I owed it to y’all (and myself) to be real and open.

      I hope you love all the recipes 😀

  22. Love the Cherry Vanilla Chia Pudding. Can you tell me how many servings this makes? Need to figure it out for WWpoints.
    Thanks so much,
    Diane

  23. What is your take on carob. I see no carob options on your site. Is it because you do not like it, or is it because it is not good for you? I ask because my dad cannot eat chocolate anymore…but he loves it. I cannot figure how to get carob to taste good, and I was wondering if you had any ideas. Thanks!

  24. Thank you!
    I am going to try the thankheavens.com recipe! It appears you use less carob than you would chocolate.
