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, […]

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. […]

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 Pizza Salad Recipe

8 May

raw pizza salad

Back in my omnivorous (and newly vegetarian days) I had tons of kitchen gadgets. I have always enjoyed cooking, and I’ve always made everything from scratch. Now that I’m mostly raw vegan, and figured out how to make mostly everything I eat with just my blender and food processor, I don’t own many kitchen appliances […]

Strawberry Vinaigrette Healthy Salad Dressing

20 Apr

One of the questions I’m asked most often about my diet is “What do you eat!?” Well the answer to that is the most obvious one: salads. [Add typical “scoff” response here.] But before you brush me off, let me explain that my salads are never boring! Actually, nothing I eat is boring. My meals […]

Raw Caprese Salad

24 Mar

I started my day in the mood for Italian food, specifically the cool, fresh taste of a Caprese salad. You know the kind. Fresh slices of red, ripe tomatoes layered with Buffalo mozzarella and tons of fresh basil. I have plenty of tomatoes growing in my backyard garden as well as more fresh basil than […]

Day 28 – Quick and Creamy Raw Broccoli Soup

20 Feb

I love super quick and easy soup recipes! They come together faster than I can even make a salad, and they are so satisfying! Today’s super-filling creamy raw broccoli soup does just that. Broccoli is a super star when it comes to nutrition. It is full of protein (even more per gram than red meat!), […]

Day 27 – Homemade Nut Butter

19 Feb

Many store-bought peanut butters and other nut butters are high in saturated fat, sugar, salt, and preservatives. They are also usually processed using extreme heat, which as you know, kills all the food’s enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. Today I made my own homemade nut butter blend. I prefer not to eat peanuts, as they absorb toxins […]

Day 26 – Raw Celery Salad and Its Benefits

18 Feb

Celery is another one of those “superfoods” that are packed with tons of goodness. Although most, if not all, natural foods can be considered a “superfood” in my opinion. Celery is 95% water, extremely alkaline, and filled with fiber. It has blood pressure reducing properties, and it is considered to be a negative calorie food, meaning […]
