Omega Boost Grain-Free Muffins

Vegetarian & Vegan Versions – Paleo-Friendly I don’t eat as much much raw food as I did back when I was healing from my auto-immune disorder, but I have been paying a lot of attention lately to my digestion, which frankly needs some adjusting.  Something that I have definitely pinpointed is that grains aggravate symptoms […]

Weekend (Raw) Pizza Party

Raw, Vegan, Grain & Gluten Free Since we are back on the 21 Days Raw Foods Challenge I’ve been experimenting with making wraps, crusts and breads that are grain-free.  As much as I crave my gluten-free bread, I suspect that grains are not helping my digestion, even when they are gluten-free.  I’m still not sure […]

Summer Breeze Sweet and Sour Cucumber Noodles

Soothing Summer Fare Raw and Raw Fusion Versions It’s already so hot here in Tampa that I am not inclined to do a lot of heat-based cooking these days.  Cucumbers are probably my number one “go-to” vegetable.  Sometimes when I am not in the mood to make a whole salad, I will slice up some […]

Fava Bean Hummus with “Garden Variety” Flax Hempseed Crackers

Raw Fusion Sunday Brunch I hosted a brunch on Sunday with a couple of my local Natural Wellness Academy coaching candidates.  Currently I am working on 4 new books:  One of them is about anti-aging and how the “Blue Zone” diets, based more on the Mediterranean style of eating has been continuously shown to have […]
