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…

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…

Yummy raw meals

Dinner

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…

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…

A restful day

I just dropped my son off at school and I want to go back to bed. I feel tired and my nose is stuffy. I haven’t been feeling well for the past few days and it’s time to acknowledge it and start taking care of myself. Everyone I’ve come in contact with last week was…

Raw vegan apple and almond breakfast bowl

It’s fall and the crisp cool weather is here. I’ve been craving apples lately so I wanted to share with you one of my favorite fall breakfast recipes. This recipe was created by Dr. Ritamarie and made on the The Renegade Health show last year. I changed the recipe up a bit, but that is…

Vegan pizza and family movie night

Yesterday we started a new tradition at our house, pizza and movie night.  My husband and son made peperoni and cheese pizza so I made this beauty for myself. I’m not a big pizza eater, usually when the rest of the family has pizza I just make a big salad for myself and call it…

Durian

Yesterday I had the most amazing durian experience. I can now officially say that I LOVE durian. My son complained the whole ride home from the Asian market that I was buying it again. I told him that I was going to open it outside, eat it outside and compost the shell right away so…

Staying raw in Tampa

I’m in Tampa this week visiting my father, as I do every year at this time. I was thinking back to last year, I had been raw for about a month and I was a little nervous about flying. I was worried that I would face an unexpected delay and get really hungry and I…
