This healthy breakfast recipe is one that helped me make it through the cold Canadian winters raw.  The oatmeal is softened with apples and this easy recipe is packed with superfoods.  This favorite raw food recipe is made with oat groats. Rolled oats are steamed open and so not raw, so to make oatmeal as a raw recipe, we use oat groats. I use steel cut oat groats that have been cut into smaller pieces and so are easier to soften. The texture is great. It is soft, not quite as soft as oatmeal, but still very satisfying and I like to add chopped nuts and some dried fruit which also adds to the texture, as well as taste.   || Read more

This delicious chocolate bar recipe was created as what I thought of yesterday as a failed chocolate bark experiement. But now, since today I can’t stop eating it I am realizing that this is sometimes how awesome creations are born. And so my chocolate bark just had a little transformation into an amazingly delicious new fruit and nut filled chocolate bar. How things can turn around sometimes, or sometimes just a new perspective is needed!   || Read more

This raw vegan chili recipe really rocks. It is one of my favorite meals and yes, chili can be made vegan, not to mention raw, just as successfully in my opinion as the classic cooked version. Its a matter of the right spices, getting a delicious flavor down as well as a nice thick hearty texture and consistency. And this recipe succeeds on both counts and is one of my very favorite raw meals. This has been a favorite for several years, and I feel it has been perfected to my liking and now can go down side by side with my grandmothers favorite cooked recipe for it, which is also delicious. But this one does have a huge advantage and that lies in its nutrition. The fresh vegetables all keeping their natural enzymes and nutrients intact can’t be beat to make us feel great and glow.  This recipe represents the best of all worlds. If you are into raw foods, or a great chili lover too, you have to check this one out!  || Read more

This hemp protein bar recipe is my new favorite. I combined all of my favorite bar ideas: using lots of seeds in the recipe, using chia seeds to bind the fillings, favorite combinations and put it all together into what I think is my new masterpiece. It is not a simple bar recipe in that it has a lot of ingredients. But once you get those together, making them is easy and I will show you exactly how in the photo description below. This bar has a high protein content with Hemp and Brazil nuts, which are 2 of my favorite protein sources. Quinoa is also high protein and it is the puffed bag of quinoa, shown below, that also inspired this recipe. It is, however, the only ingredient that is not raw, and so if you want a 100% raw recipe, you can leave it out or substitute the quinoa with more seeds and/or coconut flakes.  || Read more

This easy raw chocolate bark recipe came about as I decided that I want to make my own raw chocolate. I have been eating more dark chocolate than usual, because it’s easier to just buy it and being in a smaller city means it’s harder to find it raw and raw chocolate is really where it is at on a nutritional level. Raw cacao has off the chart nutritional properties, in my opinion it is one of the most powerful of the superfoods, but it only keeps it’s super powers when it is in it’s raw state. So I am on a quest to create an awesome chocolate bark recipe. || Read more

I love a good traditional tabouli salad, made with parsley, mint and bulgur, which is made from wheat. However, I love  my own home made tabouli, made with parsley, cilantro, avocado and hemp seeds, so much more. This tabouli recipe is packed with superfoods, and whenever you can pack more superfoods in and have something taste even better – I’m all in for that! I know, I know a lot of you don’t like cilantro. I used to feel the same, but have turned around on that, and this recipe just may make you feel the same. To me this is a recipe that it really works in, so much so that this has become a favorite salad. On top of that, cilantro is very much a superfood with some really unique health properties, like drawing heavy metals out of the body among many others. So I encourage you to give this super nutritious version of tabouli a try. You may become a convert too!

Spice up your plate and excite your palate with the fabulous flavor explosion of mango chutney. This sweet, spicy and savory condiment transforms your plate into an exotic adventure. I love this chutney served along with a main dish meal or one of my favorite ways of eating it is spread on crackers. It pairs well layered with hummus or almond or cashew cheeses as well. Chutney is used in a similar way that pickles or relish is used. Great on burgers, sandwiches and I have even used it successfully as a pizza topping. Get creative with it and add a touch of the unexpected. It is a wonderful flavor enhancer that livens up any plate.  || Read more
