Salty Alkaline Kale Green Smoothie

This salty and savory smoothie tastes like liquid guacamole and is an alkaline avenger containing some of the top alkaline forming foods to bolster health. Kale - 1 cup can be added to most smoothies without changing the flavor. Pair with tomato, avocado, coconut, chile, lime, lemon (juice and zest), and bell pepper in savory blends. Powerful phytonutrients in kale have antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties that are unleashed when the leaves are blended. Packed with calcium, iron,…

Alkaline Lime Green Smoothie

After indulging in what felt like a toxic acidic orgy and love fest with Mr. Darcy, I've decided to lovingly offer a detox with one of my favorite alkaline green smoothies to celebrate International Green Smoothie Day. I get a lot of emails asking me about oxalate toxicity. To avoid this, I rotate my greens to include romaine, kale, chard, collard greens, radish greens, beet greens, dandelion greens, parsley and many others. I only use spinach in a lot of the recipes on the blog…

Raw Alkaline Tomato Kale Chips

Well....our love affair and obsession with Mr. Darcy comes to an end today (well, for a while anyway) as I share the last fabulous recipe from our "Pride and Prejudice" movie marathon. I shared the lasagne, coconut balls and mint chocolate chip cookies. The last recipe from the evening was these sun dried tomato pesto kale chips. I offered the disclaimer last week that these raw kale chips were hard to quit eating. But I feel I must stress the point again. You and your will power have…

Raw Vegan Choc-Mint Cookies

Thank you for all of your lovely emails, Facebook and Twitter messages, and comments about our "Pride and Prejudice" marathon movie night. It is nice to know there are so many fellow Jane Austen fans out there! Seeing as I couldn't zap you all to our event (believe me, I would have if I could have) I will share the remaining two recipes on our delectable raw menu. Today I am sharing the mint chocolate chip cookies, and next week I will post the sun dried tomato kale chips! I will…

Vegan Mango Coconut Balls

The combination of mango and coconut never gets old. My friends and I proved this point with gusto last weekend at our "Pride and Prejudice" marathon party, where we successfully gobbled up the entire batch of these mango balls in one sitting. Well, we did have Mr. Darcy with us. We joked that we were enjoying Mr. Darcy's balls! Rolled in coconut! Whatever your comedic sensibilities, our commitment to devouring up every last one of these balls was impressive even to the greediest of…

Crisp Root Chips: Video and Beet Dip

I was very flattered when Crisp Root Chips contacted me to do a guest video blog featuring my favourite dip recipe to pair with their chips. Those of us living with food allergies know that we are always on the look out for the next crunchy tasty treat. Especially something we can enjoy at parties. If you love potato chips, you will absolutely LOVE these natural cassava root chips. They are absolutely delicious. I really love this company and their story. The company was started by a…

Raw Vegan Lasagna Stacks

Delicious fresh food, my favorite peeps and Jane Austen. Does life get any better? This was certainly our motto last night, as five of my closest girl friends and I enjoyed a glorious Pride and Prejudice marathon; where we prepared some delectable food and watched the entire sensational six hours of the famous BBC production of Pride and Prejudice, starring the one and only Colin Firth. Our dear friend Tara is moving back to Minnesota next month, and so Olivia, Mika, Liz, Gina and I…

Vegan Coconut Cream

I went to see my all-time-favorite musical last night and bawled like a baby. The new restaged version of Les Miserables is touring in celebration of the show's 25th anniversary. I have seen a production of this show on almost every continent, and have, on more than one occasion, been the last nostalgic fan blubbering in the stalls! Polite ushers from theaters far and wide have had to politely ask me to vacate the theatre as I stared longingly into the curtain praying for an encore.…

Almond Pulp Scrub

I don't put anything on my skin that I wouldn't put in my mouth. I am a huge supporter of natural food grade skin care, but an even bigger fan of making my own homemade skin care with food grade products in my kitchen. This way, I know the exact source of the ingredients, how fresh they are, and in what ratios and quantities they have been mixed together. I can also muscle-test the ingredients and test them against my skin as I make up my potions to know if they are a good fit for my…

Vegan Ranch Dressing

This raw vegan ranch dressing is another delightful recipe from Eva Rawposa from Uncooking 101. This dairy free ranch dressing is one of those recipes that will become like a little black dress in your culinary closet. It works for most occasions and never goes out of style. This dressing is fresh, free of additives and preservatives, and really does taste similar to store-bought ranch dressing. This recipe is great over a simple salad or as a dip for veggies sticks or crackers.…

Raw Fruity Virgin Margarita

Today I have to share with you one of my favorite websites for raw recipes. I first connected with the ladies from Uncooking 101 earlier this year when they wrote me a lovely email telling me how much they loved my blog. I was really flattered, but humbled once I acquainted myself with their incredible work. Uncooking101 is a raw blog that is the brainchild of founder, head chef and CEO, Eva Rawposa and her delightful sidekick, Venita Hale. Eva is a raw chef and vegan health educator,…
