Raw Cranberry Sauce

November 18, 2014

I have always LOVED Cranberry Sauce with my mashed potatoes and fixin's at Thanksgiving. In fact I am pretty sure that it's actually my favorite part of the Thanksgiving feast! I had to have some with every bite. Well, who says you can only have it for dinner...this version is actually what I've been having for breakfast ever since I've been able to find organic cranberries at the grocery store! 

CRANBERRY DELIGHT SAUCE 
1/2 pineapple
10 Dates, pitted 
8 oz. Organic Cranberries 

Optional additions:
1 orange
1 apple


Combine in food processor


Enjoy! 


So so good! You'll NEVER want to eat that canned stuff again!

Raw Vegan Key Lime Pie

June 26, 2014

Raw Vegan Key Lime Pie


Ok so...WHO doesn't like KEY LIME PIE???? But who doesn't want to DIE because of eating some??? Yeah...so...
Here's a recipe that will make you think you HAVE died and gone to 
"It's actually healthy for me Heaven!!" Hehe..


Pie Filling
In a good blender add:

4 LARGE or 5 medium RIPE avocados
Zest of 8 limes (do first)
1 c. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice (use limes you zested.)
1 1/2 - 2 c. Raw Honey (add to taste)
1 T. Vanilla
1 t. Sea salt

Blend until completely smooth and creamy.



CRUST

In a food processor add:

3 c. Raw Organic Almonds
10 Large Medjool Dates
1 t. Sea Salt
1 T. Vanilla 

Blend.

Press into a pie dish.  


Add filling.
Cover.
Freeze.

I like to put mine into a plastic cake carrier to freeze. 

Wait until it's firm enough to slice.
If it's frozen solid use a warm knife to slice & then let thaw out a smidge before eating (if you can wait that long..Popsicle pie slices are awesome too!) 


If you don't LOVE this something's wrong with you... J/K! ;) No seriously...

I'll add some pics after it's frozen...

ENJOY!

Berries & Kreme

June 15, 2014


This recipe is BERRY good! Hahaha!
Ok...I know....
Anyway....
It's Fathers Day and I didn't have a lot of time to make something in advance so I just whipped this up in like 10 minutes!

Berries & Kreme

Use any berries you want!
Or any fruits for that matter!

I used all organic:
Strawberries
Blackberries 
Blueberries
Raspberries

Kreme:
2 c. Raw Cashews
2 oranges, juiced
1/4- 1/2 c raw honey 
1 T. Vanilla
1/2 t. Sea salt

Blend well until creamy.
Pour over berries and refrigerate until ready to eat.

This stuff reminds me of sweetened condensed milk that I used to eat by the spoonful straight from the can and poured over bananas! 

For sure add bananas when you are going to eat this salad. You can't put
them in until you are ready to eat them because they will turn yucky and brown.
Just make sure to add them! You'll understand what I mean...

Oh so good!

Happy Father's Day!! 

Enjoy!

Vegan French Toast

June 8, 2014



Hi Everyone!

On Sundays we have a tradition of eating a typical breakfast meal after church for lunch or dinner depending on our church block. If it's 9:00-12:00 or 11:00-2:00 then for lunch and it it's 1:00-4:00 then for dinner.
Today the kids asked for French Toast.

The original recipe came from the Fit For Life Cookbook. I have adapted it through the years.

VEGAN FRENCH TOAST 

Preheat a non stick griddle on medium heat.

In a good blender blend 1 c. raw almonds into flour

Then add:

3 c. Non dairy milk. Organic non gmo Soy Milk is great!
1 T. Cinnamon
1-2 t. Vanilla
3 T. Ground Flax Meal

Blend well.

1 loaf of a good organic whole wheat bread 
(with no more than like 5 ingredients) or Sprouted Organic Ezekiel Bread. Frozen bread works really good!

Pour mixture onto a plate and dip each piece of bread until well coated then 
Place on griddle. About 3 minutes per side.

Top with desired fruit (bananas & strawberries are our favorites) and Real Grade B Organic Maple Syrup.



Your kids will absolutely LOVE these! 

ENJOY!!
RMM ❤️

Raw Vegan Kale Chips


May 28, 2014


When I go 100% raw I like to have some little occasional "indulgences" & "delicacies"...wait...I have ALWAYS wanted indulgences & delicacies! What am I talking about!? 
Uh hum.. I digress...
Ok so CHIPS!! I LOVE CHIPS!!! But NOT the heart disease creating oils & frying, and that little cancer causing thing called ACRYLAMIDE!!!! Yeah well...
SO when I had a raw vegan kale chip I felt like I had won the lottery!!! Yahooooo!!!
But a bag of these 2.2 oz babies sets you back $6!


Sorry about the empty bag picture...they're so delicious I ate them already.. #notashamedtoadmitit

So just like everything else those who "live in this world but are not of it" have to do...we have to make our healthy and good for us food ourselves! 

So HERE is the recipe:


I added some Chipotle &Smoked Paprika  for some more taste sensation!


10 hours in the Dehyrdator @ 115* and voilรก!




Now a GALLON size bag full of chips is MUCH MORE LIKE IT!!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Oooooo SO GOOD!!

I KNOW you're gonna love 'em!!

Raw Vegan Cole Slaw


May 20, 2014



Hey Everybody!

My dear husband has been sick with the flu for a while and 10 days ago was diagnosed as having pneumonia. He immediately went %100 raw!  I am so proud of him! I should have joined him as well but I didn't until yesterday when I started a new challenge of #100DaysofRaw! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ





He has been getting a little bored of juices and smoothies and so I figured I better get on board too and start whipping up some not-so-"boring" creations for him.

 I usually have been doing #Rawtill4 so it's been awhile since I've made some more fancy raw meals.

Today I decided to make a Cole Slaw because my Honey LOVES Cole Slaw!  

I just Googled "Award Winning Cole Slaw" and adapted it to raw vegan.

RAW VEGAN COLE SLAW 

1 medium to large head of Organic Cabbage, chopped
2 Organic Carrots, grated
1/2 Sweet Onion, chopped

In a good blender add:

1 c. Raw Cashews
1/2 c. Pure Water
The Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
3 T. White Vinegar
1/2 t. Sea Salt
1/8 t. Black Pepper

Blend until creamy and smooth.

Then add:
1 t. Celery Salt
