Walnut cilantro pesto and gluten free bread sticks

Vegan pizza day was a big hit, everyone loved the gluten free pizza crust from Bob’s Red Mill I will definitely buy it again. We had quite a bit leftover so I made some bread sticks. I  added some Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and sea salt. I made them for my son the cheese lover, I hear…

Juicing, a look back

I started juicing in the early 90’s, my first juicer was a Juiceman Junior and it came with this book. I don’t have the juicer anymore, but I’ve kept the book all these years. It’s fitting that this is the only first edition book I own. When I first started juicing it wasn’t easy to…

Vegan cultured coconut milk dressing recipe

Tonight for dinner I made salad and it was all my husband’s idea. Yes my meat loving husband wanted salad for dinner, my eyes light up when I heard this.  We are going skiing in a few weeks so he has been exercising and eating lighter dinners to gear up for it. Needless to say…

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…

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…

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…

Delicious watermelon and lime smoothie

It gets hot in the summertime so it’s important to keep hydrated. Drinking water is important, but sometimes it’s nice to have something with a little more flavor that will still quench your thirst. This delicious watermelon lime smoothie does just that. I went to the farmer’s market yesterday and picked up a locally grown…

Cantaloupe and dulse

When I was a meat eating foodie, which now feels like a lifetime ago, one of my favorite summer foods was cantaloupe and Prosciutto di Parma. The saltiness of the prosciutto was a great compliment to the sweetness of the melon. Eating prosciutto is not even an option for me anymore, still I can’t help…
