Raw zucchini pasta

I’m completely hooked on raw zucchini. I don’t like it cooked, but I simply can’t get enough of it when it’s raw. Saturday night I made raw zucchini “pasta” with parsley pesto topped with macadamia nut crumbles. It was so delicious. I don’t have a fancy spiralizer, so I used my vegetable peeler to make…

It’s not easy living with a bunch of omnivores

Yesterday when my son came home from school he couldn’t wait to tell me all about this boys club he started with some of his friends from school. I’m very familiar with these. He loves to create clubs that are just for boys and by the end of the day he always asks me if…

I’m not a vegan

Yes, I know it’s World Go Vegan Week and I should be touting the benefits of a vegan lifestyle and there are many. For today I want to talk about why I’m not ready to call myself a vegan yet. This past summer I decided to give up eating fish, at that point the only…

Raw orange pepper and lemongrass soup

Today I had such a fun time spending the day with my son. We were out all day, yet I still managed to stay raw and eat healthy all day. I started my day off with my usual large green juice and packed a young coconut shake, some veggies and fruit with me as I…

Beginnings and endings

garage roof

Hello friends, hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. Our garage remodel is progressing and will hopefully be done before the holidays. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about beginnings and endings as I prepare to leave my studio space. Sometimes we need to completely end a chapter of our lives before we are ready…

Yummy raw meals

I have been making some really great meals lately, beyond my usual salads. It’s so much fun to try new recipes and eat more variety. I recently made Kristen Suzanne’s Cheesy hemp nacho sauce. Loved it! I sliced up some cabbage and drizzled on the sauce.  Paired with arugula it made a great meal, of…

A house full of stuffy noses

There is a lot of sneezing and coughing going on at my house. I’m finally all better and now my son and husband have caught something that I’m hoping not to catch. Netti pot and green juice to the rescue. I like to use my Netti pot this time of year as preventative medicine.  My…

Delicious raw dinner after a long week

It has been a long week, my husband was traveling and my son and I had a little too much togetherness. I’m really looking forward to Tuesday, I love my weekday routine and I desperately need some peace and quiet. I’m sure my son is looking forward to going back to school as well. This…

Cleaning up my workspace

This month has been pretty interesting so far, a lot of big changes. I found out not too long ago that I have to find a new studio space.  My cute little space I work out of is not going to be available anymore. I decided this was a good time to streamline things and…

Roasted Eggplant

When I visit my farmers market I go directly to the only two organic vendors, I don’t even bother to look at any of the conventionally grown produce. A few weeks ago I noticed my favorite organic vendor was not there, I was so disappointed. I decided to take a look at what the other…
