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 […]

Pass the Paté , Pretty Please

Nut spreads and patés are foundational to sustaining a high raw and/or vegan lifestyle.  Prounouced “pah-tay”, they are loaded with protein, good fats and have the unctuousness of something very rich and satisfying.  They are also very filling — if you are trying to eat more raw and living foods, but find yourself getting hungry […]

Pumpkin Mac N’ Cheeze – Vegan & Gluten-Free

A video has popped up several times on my Facebook feed for a vegan mac n’ cheese, depicting a “cheesy vortex” created from mixing raw cashews with water that has been boiled with potatoes, carrots and onion.  I was intrigued enough to consider trying the recipe but had the inspiration to add some pumpkin as […]

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 […]

Carrot-Almond-Kalamata Spread – Unlikely Yet Delicious Combination

Sometimes I just play around with foods that I have available or what I am craving at the moment.  One day I had some soaked almonds that I was going to use to make milk but I wanted to make some kind of meatless pate for dinner to pair with some flaxseed crackers I had […]

Sweet Potato Custard Pie

Raw, Vegan, Grain/Gluten-Free I’ve been craving something sweet but a little tired of pumpkin (which is very hard to use raw) so I remembered this Sweet Potato Custard that I hadn’t made in a few years.  Sweet potatoes work very well in raw recipes – in fact, one of the most dreamy juices I ever […]
