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 […]

Heirloom Tomatoes with Creamy Pesto & Kalamata Tapenade

The weather has started to turn rainy, which in Seattle is a sign of fall and winter coming. We’re having more and more cloudy days (which I love!) and the temperatures are cooling. But heirloom tomatoes are still the star of the farmers markets. Heirloom tomatoes taste like summer and, paired with the fresh, bright […]

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 […]

Raw Buckwheat Granola with Homemade Vanilla Hemp Milk

This weekend, I spent Saturday morning with a friend who I haven’t seen in ages. We went for a lovely walk at Lincoln Park along the water and then stopped in at Chaco Canyon Café in West Seattle on our way home for a little brunch. I’ve been doing a juice fast and/or eating only raw foods […]
