There’s really nothing like fresh (don’t even bother with dried mint). Mint adds brightness to salads (both the fruit and greens kind), authenticity to Asian dishes, something different to energy bars, makes wonderful tea, and contributes its cool freshness to green smoothies. It’s a perfect match with chocolate. And coconut.

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.

Where do you find unsweetened coconut yogurt? I have had much trouble finding any dairy free yogurt that does not have added sugar. Can't even find organic soy yogurt without added sugar though I would prefer not to use soy.
