Superfood Bowls 5

I’ve got a new favorite creation on my raw superfood journey that cuts down kitchen time, meets my body’s “NOW” nutrition requirements, and tastes great every time. I think these Superfood Bowls will also empower you to find your own creative nature in your kitchen, as well as be even more in tune with your body’s wisdom. The basics of Superfood Bowls are simple: 1. Get a bowl 2. Add some dry superfoods 3. Add some wet superfoods (fats and/or sweetener) 4. Stir and eat on the spot It might seem like cereal to you, or as my raw friend […]

Variations on Tomato Soup 1

I have two recipes for tomato soup that I love, so I figured I might as well merge them into yet another fabulous creamy tomato soup recipe.  And it turned out delicious! I hope this inspires you to play with the recipe based on what ingredients you have on hand and what flavorings you prefer.  Here are a few raw soup guidelines that can help you in your creativity: 1. Use a tasty liquid base, like coconut water, orange juice and water, an herbal elixir tea, or at least lightly warmed water 2. Don’t blend the soup until smooth.  A […]

Orange Julius Upgraded 2

This is one of my favorite breakfast smoothies to play with – it tastes a bit like an upgraded Orange Julius (if you remember those mall days way back when) Orange Carrot Ginger Bee Pollen Hemp  Juice/Smoothie for breakfast. Sunshine in a glass! Juiced 3 oranges and 3 carrots for about 2 cups of juice Blended that juice with about 1-2 Tbsp Bee Pollen, 1-2 Tbsp Hemp Seeds and about 1 inch of ginger (peel off the brown skin) I’m estimating the amounts of bee pollen and hemp seeds because I really just dumped some in there.  I tend to […]

Pizza Soup & Salsa Soup

I had a lot of fun experimenting with making raw soups during our spring equinox cleanse and here are 2 more that we really liked: Pizza Soup and Salsa Soup! Pizza Soup Juice 1 zucchini (wow yumm!), a slice of onion & 1 red bell pepper. Blend that juice with 2-3 tomatoes, 2 Tbsp Hemp Seeds, 1 Tbsp Oregano, 1 Tbsp Fiesta Mole & about 1/2-1 Cup warmed water (optional for a warmer soup). Top with sweet baby tomatoes and green onions (or any other pizza-like toppings you desire). Tip: In place of the warm water I used a decoction […]

Tomato Carrot Hemp Soup 1

This was another winning raw soup (and often requested recipe) from our 10-day Spring Equinox Cleanse.  I did quite a few alterations to a recipe I got from Kristen Suzanne’s  book.  I think my version tastes AWEsome! It’s a nice lighter soup – not too creamy (as many raw soups tend to be). Like I’ve said before about raw soups – they taste better when you top them with something extra – like chopped green onion, nutritional yeast flakes, hemp seeds, chopped apples, chopped tomatoes, chopped avocado, chopped bell pepper and live sprouts.  Give your tastebuds multiple flavors to taste […]

Green Gobblers 3

My good friend Courtney came up with this recipe she calls snickerdoodles and while I love, Love, LOVE these snacks, the name “snickerdoodle” just doesn’t work for me.  I mean, they’re green.  Snickerdoodle cookies aren’t green. So, since the name keeps throwing me off I’ve decided to call them Green Gobblers … they are green and I can just gobble them all up (even though they are green). Try out this recipe and I think you’ll see what I mean – the sweet taste packed full of protein and green goodness will have you coming back for more. *** 2/3 […]
