Blueberry Peach Pie

24 Sep

I regularly hear the same complaint over and over from my food coaching clients – that my fellow raw foodies are made fun of for what they eat (such as at work for lunch). I am not sure if the bad-for-you food eaters are so insecure about what they are eating that they need to talk down […]

Raw Cream of Mushroom Soup

5 Sep

We Americans love to celebrate things. There is a day for everything and something to celebrate each day. Today is National Newspaper Carrier Day, and we have International Talk Like A Pirate Day as well as Elephant Appreciation Day coming up later this month, just to name a few. September is International Square Dancing Month, […]

Orange Chocolate Mousse Cake

29 Aug

Have you missed me? I’ve been off gallivanting my way through New York, and it is definitely time for me to take a break from it all to share a new recipe with you. It’s funny how many more culinary temptations I experience in my home town than anywhere else. I usually allow myself one indulgence […]

Pumpkin Pie Green Smoothie

5 Aug

I enjoyed my week of smoothies so much I am going to share with you one of my favorite smoothie recipes instead of making you wait to see it in my detox meal plan. Even though I regularly eat healthy foods, I still notice the benefits of a raw vegan green smoothie detox. I recommend […]

Raw Garden Vegetable Soup

1 Aug

My blender has been quite busy as this week as I am testing out a meal plan I created for a green smoothie detox. I am already on day 3 of 7, and I am feeling pretty good considering I should be experiencing the detoxification symptoms around this time. I felt a little hungry on […]

Magenta Raw Coleslaw

22 Jul

When I say I’m a raw vegan to most omnivores, they expect that I eat unrecognizable eccentric foods. And lettuce. They always ask about lettuce. Most people don’t realize the array of raw foods that I eat. I actually think I eat a wider variety of foods now than when I was an omnivore myself. […]

As most of you already know, I strongly recommend exercising daily. There are so many benefits from keeping active that it is crazy not to participate in some form of physical activity every day. Just a few of the awesome benefits of regularly breaking a sweat include: controlling weight and improving body-image, boosting energy, decreasing […]

Raw Falafel, Tabouli, and a Lemon Tahini Sauce

13 Jun

The longer I’m a raw foodie, the less I crave cooked foods. I’ve soon regretted the few times I’ve had some heavier cooked foods, as my body was quick to remind me why I eat raw (i.e. food coma). But what I find interesting is that the longer I’m raw, the less raw gourmet foods […]

Raw Cheesecake Cupcakes

6 Jun

I spent much of the last week or two feeling quite under the weather. It is almost winter here, and cold season is upon us! I had all the lovely symptoms of a head cold and spent much of my foggy thoughts on how to naturally feel better faster. In between movie marathons and going […]

Raw Ice Cream with a Chocolate Shell

24 May

Coconut oil has become my go-to for just about everything. I eat it, brush my teeth with it, remove eye makeup with it, and slather it all over my body. Even my hair. I am possibly more obsessed with it than the Zohan is with hummus. I heard that coconut oil makes a fantastic hair […]
