Great Weight-Loss Tips From Markus Rothkranz

Weight-Loss Special Epic Finale by Markus Rothkranz Yes, I’m a fan. I have to say that I really love the results both Markus and his girlfriend, Cara Brotman, have achieved in their bodies by following the program he prescribes. They are both about my age…right around 50ish. And honestly, they look AMAZING! In the video […]

Supposedly Raw Almond Nuts

A Nutty Dilemma

ARE “RAW” ALMONDS REALLY A SAFE NUT FOR HUMANS TO EAT? I love nuts, pretty much any kind of nut. But of all the nuts out there, if I had to choose just one to satisfy my taste buds, as well as fill all of the diverse roles I’ve become accustomed to filling with these […]

Eighty Percent Raw - Menopause Happens

MENOPAUSE HAPPENS:TRUE CONFESSIONS OF A RAW FOOD MAGAZINE PUBLISHER

This is a post I have been needing to write for a very long time now. But the thought of it gives me so much pain that I have been procrastinating like crazy! And I’ve basically been in hiding. If you have been paying any attention at all, you’ve noticed that I have not been […]

Kale Falafel/Burgers/”Neatballs”

Kale! Falafel? Burgers? NeatBalls!!!

Inspiration comes from many people and places always! Lately Facebook has been my haven of collecting and sharing thought provoking and inspirational information. A short time ago, I came across a link for an article called, “7 Reasons Kale is the new beef”. Just this week, deeply engrossed in conversation about putting kale into the diet, I was inspired by a couple of friends to create this Kale rich and versatile recipe… for anyone who may be struggling with creative Vegan dishes, or just making tasty options that even the most stubborn flesh eaters can enjoy this is for YOU!

Eighty Percent Raw - The Great Blend Off

The Great Blend Off

I heard back from Kelli at Blendtec. They are sending me one of their blenders so that I can do a side-by-side review of their brand compared to Vitamix. As you probably already know if you’ve been involved in the Raw Food community for even a short time, Vitamix seems to be lauded as the standard in the industry, when it comes to high-speed blenders. Now, I must confess, I got along just fine as a high-raw foodist for over 3 years using my steady-Freddy Oster. But that was long after I had already blown out my first Vitamix.

COCONUT CHICK'N AND RICE

CHEF HEATHY’S COCONUT CHICK’N & “RICE”

Since Mother’s Day is in May, I decided to create this recipe in honor of her. She loves Indian curry food, although is not a fan of spice, so this is a mild dish. You can add as much or as little spice as you choose. Despite the fact that the recipe looks long, it’s really simple. A zap in the food processor, a quick mix in the blender, and a bit of chopping here and there. Allow at least 2 hours for the eggplant to sit in the dehydrator, but for best results, about 4-6 hours. Enjoy!

Chef Erica's Chocolate Mint Cheesecake

CHEF ERICA’S CHOCOLATE MINT CHEESECAKE

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?

Cauliflower Mash with Mushroom Gravy

CAULIFLOWER MASH & MUSHROOM GRAVY

Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables, and it was abundant at the farmers’ market today. So, I picked up a big, beautiful head to whip up my mash for dinner. Cauliflower comes in white, green, and purple varieties, and works wonderfully processed into a mash. This is my version of mashed potatoes. Cauliflower has a kick to it, which I love.

RAW FRIENDLY RESTAURANT DIRECTORY UPDATED…MAKES ME SAD ;(

Well, the last two days have been spent updating the Raw Friendly Restaurant Directory here on Eighty Percent Raw. I’m a little embarrassed to say that it’s probably been 3 years since I went through that list to check the validity of the information there…which is kind of a big deal for me, really, since my initial commitment when creating that page was to make sure that it only contained the most up-to-date raw-friendly restaurant information on the internet. I had visited several other raw food websites prior to creating this directory on EPR and found that many or most of the links on those pages were outdated with bad links or no links at all. So, needless to say, going through this list was quite disappointing for me.
