Summer Raspberry Smoothie

Last weekend, Eric and my friend Amy and I went raspberry picking. We ate raspberries while picking until our stomachs hurt and then took home a whole bunch of raspberries. I froze half and we ate half fresh. All week we’ve been eating raspberries and one way we’ve been enjoying them is in this super […]

Chocolate Cherry Bars

These bars are sweet, but not too sweet, are full of rich flavors, and they travel well. If you’re headed out on a trip and are looking for something delicious, vegan, raw, and sustaining, these bars are just the thing. I generally like to eat bars when I’m on the move — either travelling, going to […]

Chocolate Maca Smoothie

Chaco Canyon Café has been our go-to spot for eating out this summer. They’ve got wonderful raw options and some really great cooked food and sandwiches. They also have an extensive juice and smoothie bar menu. One of our favorite smoothies at Chaco is their ‘Chaco Maca’ smoothie. We like them so much, we’ve been […]

Frozen Banana Blackberry Torte

Since Eric and I have been eating raw, we’ve been eating a ton of frozen banana soft serve ‘ice cream.’ If you’re unfamiliar with this delightful treat, it’s just frozen bananas in the food processor (or high-powered blender) until smooth and creamy. It’s the best soft serve ice cream I’ve ever had. I don’t know […]

Nectarine Crumble on a Cloudy Morning

Morning! I woke up this morning to a foggy Seattle day and, as I was drinking my green juice and reading my blog reader, I was delighted to find that Carrie of Carrie on Vegan had posted two lovely recipes for peach crumble. Thanks, Carrie, for a little inspiration on a cloudy morning! I love peaches […]

Raw Zucchini Pesto Pasta

I guess I’m on a bit of a raw foods recipe kick on the blog. Bear with me — all I’m doing these days is writing my dissertation and eating very simple, raw foods and juices. The simplicity of my days is nice — get up, feed the animals, make juice, write for hours, walk the […]

Kale Chips – Pizza Flavored

When I made these kale chips, I told Eric they would taste just like pizza. When he tasted them, he was like, “Oh yeah, JUST like pizza!” Not sure if he was kidding or not. I think he might have been. In any case, they do have a nice tomatoey Italian flavor profile. Since we’ve […]

Experiments in Raw Food: Southwest Raw Zucchini “Pasta”

A lot of times I make foods that aren’t what I would call blog worthy. They’re things that I might enjoy eating in the moment, but they’re not really the kind of thing I would ever necessarily serve anyone else (you know, like those meals where you open a can of beans, pour half the can […]

Everyday Green Juice

It’s been nearly a month since Eric and I radically shifted our diets and starting juicing heavily. About six weeks ago, my dad watched the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and got inspired to do a juice fast to heal himself. Eric and I watched the film also and thought it would be cool to […]
