Grandma’s Zucchini Bread Dippers (raw-vegan)

GRANDMA’S ZUCCHINI BREAD DIPPERS (raw-vegan) Nothing says childhood memories and comfort food like old fashioned baked bread. My grandma used to bake daily and share her creations with us. Now that she is 93, she only bakes every so often; I will take it when I can. One of my favorite breads she used to […]

Spiced Apple Crisps (raw-vegan)

SPICED APPLE CRISPS (raw-vegan) Just because an apple a day helps keep the doctor away, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with that apple. Apples are full of vitamins and nutrients and the flavor and colors of the different varieties are endless. One of my favorite ways to eat apples is SPICED APPLE CRISPS. These […]

Coconut Oil Moisturizer (raw beauty secret)

COCONUT OIL MOISTURIZER (raw beauty secret) Especially during the winter, I find that my skin and hair is extremely dry. To top off living in a dry climate, the heater and layers of clothing and hats just perpetuate the problem. I am on a RAW and VEGAN diet so I want to use products on […]

Daikon Spring Rolls (raw-vegan)

DAIKON SPRING ROLLS (raw-vegan) Just because I am only eating RAW and VEGAN these days, doesn’t mean I have to give up the traditional food that I used to eat. One of those foods is the spring roll.

FRUITY GRANOLA CLUSTERS (raw-vegan) Granola is a great way to incorporate whole grain, fruit, seeds and nuts into your diet.

LUCKY SHAMROCK SALAD (raw-vegan) BOY do I feel LUCKY!! YES– that four-leafed shamrock is REAL!

Strawberry Spinach Salad (raw-vegan)

STRAWBERRY SPINACH SALAD (raw-vegan) I LOVE classic dishes, especially at Sunday Brunch. Nothing says CLASSIC like a STRAWBERRY SPINACH SALAD!

Green Shamrock Shots (raw-vegan)

GREEN SHAMROCK SHOTS (raw-vegan) You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day! I am probably the farthest thing from it.

Citrus Rosemary Salad (raw-vegan)

CITRUS ROSEMARY SALAD (raw-vegan) Although it is winter time and it seems like the produce section is just a little smaller; one thing that is in season is citrus fruit.

Coconut Taziki Sauce (raw-vegan)

COCONUT TAZIKI SAUCE (raw-vegan) Taziki is one of those traditional foods that I gave up when I started following a raw vegan lifestyle because of the greek yogurt in it.

Lavender Salt Foot Scrub (raw beauty secret)

LAVENDER SALT FOOT SCRUB (raw beauty secret) One of the body parts I feel that is neglected is our feet, especially during the winter time. It might be due to the fact that they are covered with wool socks and snow boots most of the time. If they are not in boots, they are in […]

Greek Coconut Yogurt (raw-vegan)

GREEK COCONUT YOGURT (raw-vegan) So everybody out there, raise your hand if you just can’t wrap your taste-buds around soy yogurt. I am not sure if it is the flavor or the feeling in mouth I get from it , but I don’t like it. This is a real bummer because to buy a vegan […]

Orange 50/50 Smoothie (raw-vegan)

ORANGE 50/50 SMOOTHIE (raw-vegan) You don’t have to be a kid to love the taste of a 50/50 bar. I remember when I was a kid, we could hear the ice cream truck from a mile away. We would race to the end of the street salivating for the treats that were before us. One […]
