Homemade Raw Vegan Ice Cream Bars! Yes, another ice cream recipe! Funny that I am posting this today, because I started a juice fast this morning! I feel like I really need it because (believe it or not) I have been eating a lot of heavy vegan food lately…Good thing that ice cream does not go bad, coz these little guys will have to wait for me a while in my freezer Anyway, back to the ice cream! I got these cool molds to make ice cream bars at home and I wanted to make a raw vegan version of the classic ice cream I used to eat as a child. My favorite was the white chocolate covered chocolate ice cream! For the chocolate ice cream I used my basic chocolate avocado pudding as a base. Chocolate Pudding Ice cream Base -4 ripe avocados/ 4 ώριμα αβοκάντο -1 cup raw cacao powder/ 1 κούπα ωμή σκόνη κακάο -1 cup agave nectar/ 1 κούπα σιρόπι αγαύης -1/2 cup water/ 1/2 κούπα νερό Blend everything in a high-speed blender until completely smooth and transfer in ice cream molds. This recipe makes about 10 small ice cream bars. Enjoy!
Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes “Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream. I can think of no better place to exist, actually. So when I came across TK member Shelbi Keith’s recipe for Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes, I knew we were going to become fast friends. The first players up are: a few Russet potatoes (I’m sure other varieties will work equally as well), Parmigiano-Reggiano and butter. Start by scrubbing your potatoes good and clean. Then, using a sharp knife, make slices across the potato, being sure to stop before you reach its bottom. Cut up your butter. Then do the same with the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Description

raw lasagna rolls | The Naked Avocado This past weekend, I did my first 3-day juice cleanse with a good friend of mine – the kind where you buy the juices from a company and they arrive via FedEx at your door the day before you start the cleanse. I chose to go with a local Dallas company call Roots Pressed Juices for the cleanse, and they sent me 6 fresh juices to drink each day. The idea behind a juice cleanse is that you fill your body with fresh juices that are pressed in a way that preserves the most nutrients – vitamins, minerals, and other phytonutrients and enzymes. By just drinking the juice, you omit almost all of the fiber, so your body doesn’t have to digest the food. I have heard stories of the detox symptoms people experience while on a juice cleanse, and I have to say that I didn’t experience any uncomfortable symptoms. Would I do it again? Coming off the juice fast, it was recommended to focos on eating vegan raw foods for the first few days. To start, I got my zucchini lasagna “noodles” ready. Serves: 4
Smoky Sweet Potato Burgers with Roasted Garlic Cream and Avocado Before we talk burgers, let me tell you what I’m doing. I’m eating some blueberry yogurt pretzels (which are oh-so awesome… but would be even awesomer if they were really coated in yogurt and not white chocolate disguised as yogurt) and drinking a san pellgrino aranciata that is spiked with um… vodka, malibu and tequila. With those pretty perfectly square ice cubes. I know. But what is up with all of these flavors? I mean, it was great, if you’re into that sort of thing that includes plastering yourself to the couch for so long that your body forms an identical indentation that’s semi-permanent, and ordering pizza Friday night which not only was dinner, but then also became lunch and then uh, dinner again on Saturday. I wish I could be all “ohmygosh, it was so rainy and cozy all day Saturday and I just got so caught up in my book that I read then entire thing while sitting in my plush velour chair in my special corner of the room that I have all to myself”… but no. Welcome to my life.
15 Minute Udon Miso Noodle Soup Monday, July 19, 2010 Fast food Japanese style! Start to finish, this healthy and light Japanese Udon Miso Noodle Soup takes less than 15 minutes. Udon noodles are white, fat ‘n slighty chewy, wheat-based noodles from Japan. You can find them in the refrigerated section of your Asian grocery store and many regular grocery stores. The type of mushrooms I used in the recipe is called shimeji mushrooms, or white beech mushrooms. What makes this udon miso soup so flavorful is the addition of miso. Here’s a short video of how to make Japanese Udon Miso Noodle Soup with a great tip on what NOT to do with miso. So this recipe is from Cat Cora’s Classics With a Twist cookbook. Since I was in NYC when Cat was in Tampa, my assistant attended and got a chance to interview her. Store fresh udon noodles in the refrigerator or in the freezer. Leave a Comment

I got a huge lesson from life. I received a huge slap by life, right in my face. I was warded in the hospital and was put through countless of examinations and treatments. I started to include more vegetables and fruits into my diet and gradually decline the intake of fried food and fatty food. My 30 Days Challenge
Lasagna Timpano I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do, but other times it seems to come naturally. Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation. Start by making a lasagna crust. Finally got it together. Now it's easy, just start building the layers! Alfredo sauce with some salami goes first. After 3 alfredo layers, I switched to pesto. A cheese only layer, just for fun. Tomato sauce is last. It's important to press things down as you go. In my opinion, it can't be lasagna without at least a little ricotta! I painted on some alfredo at the end as a glue. All sealed up. After baking. The flip is always a scary moment. Unveiling. A thing of beauty. Cutting is another tense event. Glorious! I still can't believe how great this came out and how awesome it actually tasted!
Bok Choy Recipe Friday, January 9, 2009 photo of Bok Choy (learn about bok choy) – so vibrant and tender! I’m going to tell you to do something that is totally contrary to many Asian cookbooks out there. Okay, ready? Cold Wokky, Very Garlickky. The problem with using a very hot wok or frying pan to stir fry with minced garlic and ginger is that you’ll probably burn it. If you had used a hot wok and hot oil, you only get a few seconds before they burn. Bitter. Bitter can be good sometimes – I LOVE bitter. Now, I do want to say that the rules for cooking meat in a pan or wok are different – (that’s another lesson that I’ve written extensively about at Simply Recipes.) Young grasshoppa, let me show you the way. Start by trimming the bok choy stem off – don’t trim too much – just the end. But leave the tender baby that’s in the middle of each bok choy! Place wok or frying pan on your stove and pour in the cooking oil. I really mean it! Pour in broth, water or wine over the bok choy. That’s it! Leave a Comment
How to Feel Really Good in 5 Steps - ZenRaw Posted by Joe | February 7, 2012 | Filed under Basics, Lists 1. Meditate We can make ourselves feel good by reaching for stimulants that are quick and dirty, such as caffeine, sugar, fried foods, alcohol, or marijuana. We can also take another path that also makes us feel good, doesn’t take much more time to do, and requires even less effort than going to the store to buy our stimulant. This other path is mediation. Add meditation to your morning routine and you will continue your day with greater focus and clarity. 2. One direct way to feel amazing throughout the day is to eat a mostly to fully raw diet. Green smoothies and green juices will be the most energizing and alkalizing part of your raw diet. For lunch have a ginormous salad that you create yourself or make following some salad recipe. We are supposed to be talking about only raw food on here aren’t we? 3. Enough cannot be said about exercise and it’s link to happiness. 4. 5. Related Posts No related posts.
Pizza Cake How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it. My new definition of bliss: warm dough with a cheesy center and a bite of pepperoni. Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Breadfrom Confections of a Foodie BrideIngredients: -2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced -4 tbsp butter -2 lbs pizza dough (I used 2 balls of Trader Joe's fresh dough) -6 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes (about 48 pieces) -pepperoni (about 48 slices) -2-3 cups marinara sauce for serving Directions: 1. 3. 4.

Spiced Red Lentil, Tomato, and Kale Soup This is the kind of soup with broth that tastes just as good, if not better, than the actual add-ins. Is it normal to want to guzzle the broth? Well, it is now, my friends. It’s actually a miracle I have any taste buds left because I’ve burned my tongue so many times since dedicating the last two weeks for cookbook soup makin’. After concocting 6 different soups and stews my freezer is very happy. Chili powder, cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, and cayenne pepper create a downright irresistible flavourful broth bursting with nutrition. Since most vegetable soups don’t hold me over very long, I added a cup of red lentils to amp up the protein (and fibre).
