Homemade pies can be a lot of fun to make, and you can put your love right into it. “Regular” pies are of course contain lots of white sugar, butter, gluten, dairy products, etc. But now especially that the seasons are shifting, the natural energy of this season is go inwards, and a little treat here and there may feel really nourishing to you. I really love nutmeg and so I really love this pie. While this pie does have some fat (from the nuts) and sugars, it doesn’t contain the aforementioned beauty-busting ingredients.
Saturday night we had a special dinner with family friends. For one weekend all 8 of us were around before starting vacations and school again; one of is even spending a year studying at Oxford(no, it’s not me; yes, I’m jealous). That called for cake.

Life got exciting today. I made my raw food recipe for raw cashew cheese and it turned out great! I have been preparing raw food for some time now but the cheese, the ones that you have to make and set-up for a day, seemed a little daunting.
"One thing you are going to learn about live food is that that's the diet that works the best. And what's the reason? When you cook the food, you lose 50% of the protein, 70% to 80% of the vitamins and minerals, and close to 100% of the phytonutrients." –Gabriel Cousens, M.D Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days is an independent documentary film that chronicles six Americans with diabetes who switch to a diet consisting entirely of vegan, organic, uncooked food in order to reverse disease without pharmaceutical medication.

We have reached day 12, the final day of the 12 Days of Endive ! I hope you’ve learned a bit about this amazing versatile vegetable, but what I hope even more than that is that you start buying it and using it! To celebrate day 12 I’m sharing an edamame salad I made a few days ago that I love serving on cold crisp endive leaves. The salad is colorful and delicious, full of nutrients, and is super quick to whip up.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good raw foods dessert. I talked about my introduction to them in this post, and while I really do enjoy them, I rarely make them at home. I don’t have a dehydrator, for one thing, and the ingredients can be pretty expensive depending on what you’re making. They also sometimes involve soaking nuts over night, which I usually don’t have the foresight to do ahead of time.
Oh sweet. My first food post this week and I bring you… dirt? Don’t worry. The contents of this dirt-looking-food is actually cocoa powder, chia seed flour, medjool dates, and just a few other ingredients. This tasty little treat was inspired by Chia Brownie Bites from the Twin Cakes Bakery .
