Inspired by Cultured Food Life’s post about second fermentation of milk kefir, I made this yummy breakfast. I’m normally not a huge fan of kefir but a second fermentation was all it needed to push me into the fan category.

Flax Crackers. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I frequently look at raw diet cookbooks and websites – I don’t think there’s anything wrong with cooking food, but I love using them as a resource for healthy desserts and figuring out variations on flavors – those raw people can get super creative, and they usually only use whole foods which is great.

Case in point – they’ve been doing the flax cracker thing forever, they just dehydrate them instead of baking them. I’ve hardly ever seen a recipe for this kind of flax crackers that wasn’t raw, so I decided to see if they worked as well in a standard oven since I don’t own a dehydrator. They do! These things are awesome – super healthy (flax is all kinds of good for you), super flexible (you could season these with a ton of different flavors), delicious, and easy!

Raw Fruit & Chia Jam: My Grown-up PB&J | Every school day from 1st grade through graduation, I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch, and I couldn’t get enough. I would spread on copious amounts of Peter Pan creamy peanut butter with just a little grape jelly, which was smashed between two slices of Iron Kids bread.

As a child, I quickly learned that if the peanut butter did not go on both sides of the bread, the grape jelly would seep through and make the bread gross and soggy (I was a smart kid). I could still probably eat a PB&J every day, but gone are the days of the sugar and hydrogenated oil-filled peanut butter and the gelatinous ‘where’s the fruit’ jelly. And as much as I loved Iron Kids as a child, I said no to white bread years ago. Thankfully, there are lots of great all-natural peanut butter brands out there that contain only peanuts and salt. You can even buy whole grain bread without added sugar; I am a huge fan of Ezekial sprouted whole wheat bread–especially toasted.

Servings: 6 Ingredients Directions. Raw Coconut Milk. It all started with a craving for raw Pad Thai. I haven’t made it yet, and have been wanting to for quite a while. Knowing that coconut milk is an important ingredient that I want in my Pad Thai sauce, I set out to make fresh, raw coconut milk for my raw Pad Thai raw food recipe. I use young Thai coconuts all the time. I open them with ease (see here) and am very familiar with how to use them. I have memories, as a very little girl, of my mother trying to open a coconut. Well, here is the thing. To open the coconut, simply tap (ok…whack) the coconut around the midline with the back of a cleaver.

After a couple of good whacks, you will hear a crack. You can then either pry out the flesh with a table knife or my favorite, turn it over, give the outside shell a good whack with a hammer and the flesh will just pop right out (this does require breaking the shell). Once you pop the flesh out, peel off the brown skin with a vegetable peeler.
