This is Chef Adam Graham with a nostalgic smoothie inspired by fond memories from my youth. March is the time of year that the Shamrock Shake makes its appearance on billboards around the country. No longer do I cue up at the Un-Happy Meal trough to stuff my belly with industrial waste (watch the video). That’s not to say that I don’t miss drinking a Shamrock Shake… I do.
Here’s a soup that’s great served cold on a hot summer day or warmed up when the weather cools off. Young Thai coconut water and meat provides the broth for this soup while the peppers and the miso provide the flavor. Fresh prepared coconut mylk can be substituted for the young Thai coconuts.
I’m a big fan of chia, no secret there. For those of you that have only heard of chia because of the novelty “chia pet” you’re missing out. Chia seeds are a powerhouse of protein, fiber and antioxidants. They are a strength and endurance food that was a traditional food of the Aztecs. They are also a great source of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
Summer is fading fast in Florida and in some places it’s already gone. It’s time to welcome in the changing of the seasons and the fall harvest. Here’s a recipe you can break out for that last picnic of the season or any other time of the year.
This month’s offering finds me in Watervliet, Michigan at Ronora Lodge. I imagine most of you have never heard of either place, but believe it or not there’s a whole lotta raw at Ronora Lodge. They’ve hosted Matt Monarch and Angela Stokes, David Wolfe, Paul Nison, Victoria Boutenko, Tim VanOrden and many others and they’re just getting started. One of the owner operators of this 100+ acre facility recently returned from the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Patagonia, AZ where she was able to COMPLETELY REVERSE HER TYPE 1 AND 2 DIABETES.
Greetings Health Fans, I’m not sure where you are reading this from but it’s hot here in Florida. Fortunately summer is winding down and the fall harvest is right around the corner. Since the theme of this month’s Eighty Percent Raw issue is “back to school” I figured I’d share one of my favorite easy […]
Happy July Boys and Girls, Chef Adam Graham here keeping cool in Atlantic Beach, Florida. Where I am in Florida we’re up to our neck in summer. The heat and humidity keeps us indoors, in the shade or in the water. While some folks will be firing up the grill to sear some flesh, I’ll […]
Greetings Health Fans, For the month of June I’ve decided to keep things simple. At the moment I’m traveling in Europe and simplicity has been the name of the game especially in regards to preparing food while traveling. I’ve got no Vita-mix, no dehydrator, no food processor and unfortunately I’m not traveling with out a […]
May is upon us and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. I would like to take a moment to express thanks, love and gratitude to all the moms and even those out there that are assuming a motherly role in some aspect of their life. Being motherly is not gender specific. I know plenty […]
Earth Day is upon us again. Time to embrace conscious living and acknowledge and implement your personal power to make positive change in the world with each decision you make. Guess what, it’s Earth Day, everyday. This month’s recipe contribution to Eighty Percent Raw is a main dish item that is tasty and flexible literally and figuratively. My offering is an onion bread recipe that is basically an evolution of many of the onion bread recipes I’ve come
