Mango Curry Tofu

Tofu Mango Curry by Vegan Richa

Mangoes are abundant in India, where they are always juicy and sweet. In the United States, mangoes can be a bit tart. For desserts or curries like this one, I prefer mango pulp or puree in canned or bottled form. You can use a ripe mango, if you prefer, but be sure to puree it well before using. This is a simple recipe but the resulting dish is very alluring with its sweet and spicy sauce. It can easily be made soy-free. Recipe and photos from Vegan Richa’s Indian Kitchen * © 2015 by Richa Hingle. Vegan Heritage Press, LLC. reprinted by permission. more→

Golden Turmeric Milk (Nondairy)

Golden Turmeric Milk (nondairy)

Golden turmeric milk, a traditional elixir from the ancient system of Ayurveda, has been recommended for increased immunity and to help inflammation by yogis and Ayurvedic practitioners throughout the ages There are many variations of Golden Milk, many using almond oil. I like using coconut oil instead, and adding some additional warming spices, for flavor and added health benefits. A healing turmeric tonic, this is much more economical to make at home than buying ready-made turmeric beverages. Recipe and photo contributed by Chantelle of Naked Cuisine.

5 Juicing Mistakes Everyone Must Avoid

fresh green vegetable and fruit juice

Contributed by Garrick Dee Tan, from Juicing with G. Juicing can be very beneficial to your health when done right. But when done wrong, the results can have the opposite effect from what you want to achieve. Instead of losing weight, you can gain weight, and in some cases it can be life threatening (I’ll explain this in a bit). So before you drop that first celery into a juicer, read this article carefully so that you maximize every ounce of juice you drink and don’t waste money on stuff you don’t need.
