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 […]

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 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 […]

Day 16 – Chickens and a Creamy Salad Dressing

8 Feb

When I’m not eating a completely raw diet, I choose to eat vegan. Meat is not healthy (as you’ll learn in the next few days), and chicken is ranked (by Men’s Health magazine) as the #1 food you should never eat due to its high rate of bacterial contamination. More than 99 percent of chickens […]

Day 9 – Informed Eating and Raw Slaw

1 Feb

Day 9 and I’m feeling fine! I’m enjoying all this raw food and the research I’m doing because of it. I came across this today and love it! “The standard diet of a meat-eater is blood, flesh, veins, muscles, tendons, cow secretions, hen periods, and bee vomit. And once a year during a certain holiday in November, […]

Day 7 – Vegetable Protein and a recipe for Avocado Garlic Salad Dressing

30 Jan

I’m one week in, and I’m feeling awesome!   I hate to admit it, but even I asked, “But where do you get your protein?” when a friend informed me she had gone vegetarian four years ago. I just blurted the question out, without even considering vegetable protein. That’s how ingrained the FDA’s 5 Food […]
