Servings: makes about 3-4 dozen Another attempt to 'rawify' a cooked recipe - in this case some gluten-free crackers my partner bought - that turned out even tastier than the original.
Apologies for this post being a few days late, but my love for LARA bars demanded several tries and multiple flavor variations before posting—I really wanted to get this as close to the real thing as possible. Whether you’ ve heard of them or not, LARA BARS are one of the very best energy bars on the market, largely because they are made from a short list of real food ingredients: nuts, fruits and spices. In addition to their inarguable yummy- ness , they boast the following assets: Unprocessed - Raw - Non- GMO - Gluten Free - Dairy Free - Soy Free - Vegan - Kosher. For comparison sake, take a look at the Lara bar ingredients and the ingredients for another apple- ish flavored bar on the market (made by Powerbar ): LARABAR : Apple Pie Flavor (from http://www.larabar.com/ )Dates, Walnuts, Unsweetened Apples, Almonds, Raisins, Cinnamon
Greetings to everyone - I am so grateful that you are with me today for the very first installment of The Healing Feast, which has been seven years in the making! We used to think we had to do a lot to make changes in our lives, until one day we started to appreciate the cumulative effects that seemingly small actions can make. (Read more about simple changes following the recipes.) Here's an easy change to switch from dairy products to plant based protein - Sunflower Seed Cheese. Sunflower seeds have 35 grams of protein per cup! This recipe is made by soaking sunflower seeds (or a mix of sunflower, and pumpkin seeds), and blended in the blender with garlic, your favorite salt (ours is pink Himalayan), lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar.
As the saying goes, three times a charm. No kidding! After having only minor success creating a raw blueberry pie and a strawberry cheesecake , I decided it was time to find a recipe that has already generated a lot of positive feedback.

Recipe for Corn Bread Love corn bread but can’t find a great raw corn bread from your local store? Make your own at home with our recipe for corn bread, using corn, walnuts, cashews and flaxseeds ! Ingredients:
Hummus is always a staple for me. I am so pleased with this raw version. I eat it with raw veggies and apples or on raw bread and in sandwiches or salads.
As per my last post, there are a whole assortment of crackers that can be made in the dehydrator from various sprouted grains and seeds, plus other, less well known about alternatives such as chickpeas and flax seeds (also know as linseed). I'm sharing one of my favourite flax cracker recipes with you today because I'm hoping that you feel inspired enough to give dehydrating a go, and, fingers crossed, that this will push you to do even greater things besides, because this recipe is fool-proof. (I know, I know... I'm asking for it!) All you need to get started is your food processor and your dehydrator with Paraflexx sheets or some baking paper. A spatula also works better than a knife for scoring the divides, but is not crucial.
One of the wonderful things about Tahini, is that anyone with a blender and some sesame seeds can make it on their own! It’s rich, indulgent, interesting, and a cheap way to add a filling ingredient to dressings, salads, soups, and wraps. So let’s jump in! The most basic recipe for tahini is simply sesame seeds ground until soft, but unfortunately this is far too simplified and won’t work in most cases. But don’t you worry, it still is a simple process.
AVOCADO MEDLEY INGREDIENTS 1 ear of corn 1 avocado 1/2 red bell pepper 1/2 orange bell pepper 1/2 medium red onion 2 T cilantro, finely chopped 1 t salt 1 t chili powder 1/2 t cumin EQUIPMENT Food processor (definitely optional) Put all ingredients together (except plum tomatoes) in a food processor or better yet, chop and mix by hand in a bowl. Cut a thin strip off the bottom of the tomatoes so they will easily stand up, and split them in half. You would to have two halves that can be stuffed with the medley. Make sure you do NOT cut the part where the stem comes out of the tomato ~ cut below it instead ~ and then remove the insides carefully so that the bottoms are still sealed.
This mouth-watering recipe comes to us from Marie-Claire Hermans . My favorite part of the recipe? Where Marie-Claire advises us to lick the bowl! HA!
It really does taste as creamy and yummy as it looks! By the way, this bowl is only about 2.5 inches in diameter. These are mini scoops, not full sized scoops. The flavor and texture are so rich that that you only need a little bit to feel satisfied.
Directions In order to make the crust you should take the ingredients from the crust (1c of almonds, 2c walnuts, 1c dates) and soak them for at least 1 hour. Then drain and put in the food processor, add 1 pinch of Himalayan salt and some cinammon to taste.
Warm Raw Vegan Miso Soup Aloha! I have just made a super yummy raw vegan miso soup and would love to share it with you. This soup is simple and quick to make, requiring nothing other than a saucepan, a knife, cutting board, veggies, miso, tahini, sea salt and apple cider vinegar. Check it out!
I promised a client that I would post this dressing recipe asap. Why? Because it's simple, delicious, quick and easy and makes all the difference to a salad and, finally, being new to this and all, she needs it! I created this dressing as a variation on the simple vinaigrette.
Earlier this week I received a special delivery from Crown Publishing: The Raw Truth - Recipes and Resources for the Living Foods Lifestyle by Jeremy A. Safron . It is a lovely book and I've put a review up for you in our Library . Since I have been so busy with travel and writing the past couple of weeks, I have really been keeping my food preparations very simple.....well, boring actually. This book has brought some new inspirations and I was delighted to find so many easy to prepare recipes. I thought it would be good if I made one of them for you today.
