Michelle Obama Enlists Sesame Street Favorites To Endorse Her Healthy Eating Drive!

michelle obama elmo sesame street food

Michelle Obama is flawless, and we LOVE the message she's sending to kids about healthy eating… we just have one problem!

It's Halloween and HALLOWEEN AND CANDY FOREVZZZ!

Any other day and we would be 100% behind this — but as of right now we can only muster 99.9% because of the holiday and the treats that come with it for the sake of childhood! (We're kidding, of course, we're always 100% behind helping kids!)

Michelle has enlisted Sesame Street characters Elmo and Rosita, along with others, and has announced a cunning plan to get children 'begging' for fruits and vegetables in the grocery store. And do you know what that is?

Get In Our Mouths! Raw Vegan & Gluten-Free Carrot Cake With Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Laugh

I love carrot cake! It’s one of the desserts I wish I could eat for every meal (it does have vegetables, right?) Here is a version where you get the entire flavor without the guilt. FitPerez fan Victoria from Stockton, California requested a 4 ingredient recipe for a healthy, low-carb cake – and here you go!

It’s also raw (no baking required) gluten-free and vegan! Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Carrot Cake

2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1 ½ cups buckwheat, oat or almond flour
2 cups dried fruit (I use ½ dates, ½ dried pineapple, but experiment with raisins, apricots, etc)
½ cup dried coconut

Add all ingredients to food processor, and pulse until combined and sticks together. For this recipe, you can pour into an 8 in round pan (I like the spring-form type for easy removal) or lined cupcake tins. Spoon icing on top of carrot mixture, spread lightly, and put pan in refrigerator until hardened; at least 2 hours. Garnish with a dusting of fresh ground cinnamon or nutmeg, and its ready to serve!

Cashew Frosting

2 cups raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 2 hours
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons lemon or fresh orange juice
½ cup maple syrup or agave

Combine all ingredients in blender, until smooth. Add water (if needed) 1 teaspoon at a time, to get a frosting like consistency. Set-aside until ready to use.

jennifer aniston reveals diet to prepare for we are the millers

Jennifer Aniston is NOT afraid to bare it all, and with a body like that, why would she be??

The seksi actress will be letting it all hang out in We're The Millers, where she plays a stripper turned drug dealer and so far we are definitely liking what we are seeing!

Jen has already opened up about how yoga helped her get into such amazing shape, but she also says it was extremely important for her to watch what she was eating, especially while shooting one particularly steamy scene!

Tia Mowry-Hardrict Talks Going Vegan

Filed under: VeganTia Mowry

Tia Mowry-Hardrict recently went vegan, and during a recent Google+ hangout she was asked how hard it was to go vegan and what the toughest part about being vegan is.

She explained her diet is really about fruits, veggies and protein. Fresh produce, beans, quinoa, etc.

The thing that she noticed was a major change was that she now cooks tons of food and stores it.

It seems like if you're vegan and you don't plan ahead, you really won't have anything to eat.

And that just sounds awful.

She's so into cooking now she was thinking about starting her own cookbook!!

Check out the video (above) to hear all about what it takes to make the switch to go full vegan!
