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!

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!

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?

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.
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.
This is a delicious autumn soup. It’s creamy, warm and filled with amazing aromas! Perfect for those chilly days when something filling is calling your name.
Since going vegan, it’s been hard to find a French toast recipe that I enjoyed, so I came up with my own. A fellow vegan blogger tipped me onto using ciabatta bread and it works best. If you don’t have orange extract on hand, use the zest of one orange and one tablespoon of the juice, or just leave it out.
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.
Perfectly simple and delicious! Are you looking for a special elegant dessert or a great summer pick me up that’s easy to make yet leaves everyone wanting more…well here it is! This recipe can be a ton of fun, try different berries or even a splash of your favorite liquor for a very grown up […]
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.
These little bundles of chocolate goodness are simply heaven on a spoon. The combination of chocolate and hazelnut liqueur will have you hanging on by your fingertips.
Making salad a finger food! Please note that this recipe is only 99% raw, though, due to the rice papers.
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.
Many parents, when they begin to improve their own diets, are uncertain about whether they can ‘impose’ the healthier eating regime on their children. They act as if denying their children candies and burgers and cholesterol packed ice cream would be cruel. The opposite is true. It is cruel to impose a lifetime of illnesses on children who are looking to YOU for the example and the knowledge of how to live.
Apples are a universal food, a favorite at any age and of virtually every species. No wonder kids love them! And raw applesauce is one food that is not only ten times healthier than it’s cooked counterpart, but it is ten times faster to make. Bonus! It is totally addictive, so consider yourself warned!
