Happy Earth Day!!! For my raw dessert submission I made a Chocolate-Mint cheesecake, the chocolate resembling “dirt” and the Mint resembling “grass”. The food coloring I used to dye the mint topping green with is actually liquid mint-flavored chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is our #1 source of oxygen. Without oxygen, humans could not exist. So what better way to say “Happy Birthday” to Mother Earth than with a chlorophyll-rich cake?
Wheatgrass, a potent natural healer, has been remarkably effective for thousands of my patients since I began using it therapeutically in 1995. It has also made my job a lot easier because it often heals when nothing else works.
A concern of many who make the switch to raw foods is how can they fulfill their cravings for their customary snacks and treats, as many of those foods don’t play a part in their new diet. If something sweet is your snack of choice, once you get accustomed to the basics of making Raw Desserts you find that it is easy to satisfy sweet cravings with only a few ingredients. Salty snacks require a bit more creativity.
