banana + hemp smoothie

Last night I bought a lettuce and a bunch of bananas… This morning I have a green breakfast! Who said this was difficult?… so read my FB page on Sunday morning, accompanied by a photo of my thick delicious green smoothie.

candy cranberry fruit leather

One of my favorite things about fall is apples! Simply I know but it is so much fun to get a whole lot more variety and the ability to pick them yourself – haven’t done that this year yet, but it’s always an adventure…

super-food crunchy-nut gra(w)nola

Last night someone called me crazy. It is the first time I have really been called crazy since I went raw and friends were calling me crazy all the time (hence the name of the blog… and I actually quite like being a little…

cheddar cheeze sauce

I used to love cheese sauce. Love with a capital L… with cauliflower, with lasagna, with a spoon and with tuna baked on a croissant topped with paprika. My brother was my cheese sauce partner in crime. The best bonding we ever did as…

raw falafel, no beans!

I love these falafel patties so they were the perfect thing to make yesterday to kick start a week of all raw food – something I haven’t done for an embarrassingly long time, and definitely something I need to do more often – I miss it…

raw vegan squash chips

Squash is the new potato. I just came home to the most wonderful smell of squash chips in the dehydrator and realized, as much as I used to think I loved potato chips, they ain’t got nothing on my squash chips. I also am embarrassed…

chunky chili brownies

raw vegan avocado ‘skins’

I first had Alissa Cohen’s avocado skins at her raw restaurant in Boston, Grezzo. I fell in love with them and so did my omnivore boyfriend, so I was really excited when she released her latest recipe book Raw Food For Everyone, especially since it closely followed…

superfood trail mix

I have eaten a whole mason jar full to the brim of trail mix this week! It’s sooo good, and so good for me. I mixed a whole bunch of random stuff together and it totally works! Ingredients: Sunflower seeds Pepitas Cashew pieces Pistachios…

ginger choc macaroons

OMG yum! I am having a love affair with raw ginger chocolate macaroons… Totally delish and only a little bit naughty (they require maple syrup).  They have also passed the taste test with two very discerning omnivours, with one snacking on them in the…

cheezy cayenne kale chips

My house smells really yummy this morning! I love dehydrating things overnight and really would do it just to wake up to a tasty aroma every day… especially kale chips. These things are totally awesome – cheesy, tasty and filling, and packed with goodness…

spicy ‘salmon’ pâté

The ultimate lazy snack has really got to be crackers and dip doesn’t it? Open cupboard, grab crackers. Open fridge, grab dip. Dip + Eat = Instant gratification. So when dehydrating your own raw flax seed crackers from scratch a sudden craving for a savory…
