IMG_0332 Today is a cookie day! I went on a 6 hour mountain hike with friends this weekend and along the way I asked them for tasty recipe ideas. Someone suggested a coconut cookie… and naturally a splash of chocolate has to be added, so this yummy snack was born. The chocolate is totally optional but takes...

IMG_0100 I realize its not pear season but recently I had a craving for pears - go figure. After letting them ripen in the window for several days, I turned them into this tasty parfait recipe. I tossed diced pears with a creamy caramel pudding and layered it with banana soft serve and a chewy monukka nut c...

IMG_0035 Today's recipe doesn't get much healthier. It boasts heaps of healthy fats, lots of fiber from the chia seed, and is sweetened with mineral rich coconut sugar. It's soft, creamy, and light on the sweet side. I think this is a great breakfast recipe but I also like it as an afternoon snack. IMG_0030Vanilla ...

IMG_0212 Today I have a fantastic recipe to share with you. This cheesecake infuses fresh vanilla and white chocolate with a matcha swirl, all on a nutty coconut crust. If that wasn't enough, I garnished it with a crunchy spirulina coconut crunch. Yum, the whole combo is perfect. IMG_0104 In case you aren't familia...

IMG_0098 The other day I had a craving for raspberries. Actually, Ive been eating a lot of berries in general lately. Gotta go with those healthy cravings right?! I figure there must be something in the berries that my body needs. Besides loading up my daily smoothies with berries, I thought it would be fun...

IMG_0135 Chocolate and cherries go so perfect together. The other day when I was thinking of what to do with dried cherries, black forest cake popped into my mind. I've never actually been a fan of this cake, lol, but a raw version came to mind… and then I decided it would be fun to turn the idea into ...

IMG_0038 The other day I was craving something creamy and nourishing for lunch. I had a package of wakame seaweed, a bunch of zucchini, and lots of cashews… so this yummy dish was born. When wakame is soaked, its actually got the texture of soft cooked noodles so sometimes I like to combine it with zucchini...

IMG_0032 I think its pretty obvious that I love maca. I use it in recipes often, and its always a great addition to smoothies! The nutritional benefits are high, and as an adaptogen it has the ability to give your body what it needs. Pretty amazing considering we all have different needs and it can deliver ...

IMG_0529 I used to love granola for breakfast when I was a child. It was a special treat that my mom only bought occasionally and only let me have a small bowl of it - maybe because she knew how unhealthy it is. Regular granola is filled with sugar and unhealthy oils. I don't know about you but that's not e...

Image The other day I had just enough extra young coconut pulp on hand from making another recipe that I decided to throw it into a blueberry smoothie. It was SO good! Smooth, creamy, flavourful, and full of nutrition. You could replace the blueberries with any other berry that you have on hand. Strawber...

This cake is really rich and quite intensive to play around with while making it, but the end product is worth it! This uses a smaller spring form to save on cost and time. You really only need a small slice anyways to satisfy, however that didn't stop my roommate from eating half of it for breakfas...

Bananas, Coconuts, and Mulberries, what a combination! While I love a 20+ ingredient super-food smoothie as much as anyone, there can be such beauty in food that is simple yet elegant. I find this to be even more true when it comes to the right combination of flavors that balance out each other. The...

This recipe is so simple and really satisfying! Why I never thought to make it in the past 2 years since I've been doing this raw food thing is really quite astonishing considering how much I enjoy chocolate and apples! The recipe below will make between 3-6 covered apples depending on the size. Be ...

Ok, I had to do it! With all of these new raw vegan dishes coming at me lately that are so close to the dishes I would normally eat, but even better, I had to try and recreate the classic banana cream pie. I had no idea what I was getting into or what I was doing. It was my first time making a ...

When deciding to take on a 40 day raw vegan challenge one of my first thoughts is pasta and more accurately rawsta! I have had several raw pastas before, but had never had one of my all time favorites--Puttanesca. With access to our Really Raw Olives-Moroccan Spice and access to Google to find a rec...
