What’s cookin’ with Breanne Rice?

A few months back, the incredible Hilary Phelps introduced me to a beautiful soul….Breanne Rice. She has moved and grooved her way to the top of the food chain (no pun intended), creating a Holistic Nutrition Consulting business — Breanne’s Holistic Health. At age 19, Breanne was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease of vitiligo, thus forcing her to take her imperfect situation turn it into her passion for natural health. Stationed in Seattle yet traveling nationwide to promote her brand, Breanne is a one-of-a-kind beauty that stands for so much more than a pretty face. This chick LOVES life. She takes it and GOES. Truly inspiring!

Sooooo, I was curious. What is a holistic nutritionist lovin’ at this very moment?!

Gluten & Dairy Free Chocolate Cake

Okay, so for those of you who know Madame Bevillard, you know she is not a self-proclaimed patient, domestic, apron wearing chick to randomly whip up a large cake with 5 million ingredients. That being said, I know many of you are asking for the Bevillard Culinary Creation Recipe —> wellppp, it was SO DARN GOOD that I made her send the secret recipe for the blog ASAP. Here it is in all its glory, as told by the Bevillard Baker herself. #delicious.

So…what kind of birthday cake are you supposed to make for your best friend’s birthday when she is lactose intolerant & a total health hippie? Oh and there is another caveat…she LOVES chocolate (Dark Chocolate of course). Seems like a fun challenge, except there is one small little problem – I LOATHE cooking and/or baking.  I don’t get that fun sense of accomplishment making an Instagram worthy creation (and I definitely don’t have the time or energy to spend on this hobby).
