Homemade Raw Sauerkraut

  Hello dear readers, Well another season is blazing by – Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving is upon us in less than two weeks. This morning I ordered my gluten-free pie crust from Bacano Bakery and perused the beautiful sugar-pie pumpkins at the farmers’ market. The weather is finally chilling in California and […]

Sprouted Graw-nola

  This week I was planning to make a batch of my granola and at the last minute stopped by the gluten-free bakery only to find out they were OUT of gluten-free oats!  They are the only place near me that I know has them, so I was out of luck.  And out of ideas for breakfast […]

Rick Bayless’ Green Herb Ceviche

  I get a lot of my recipe ideas from the NY Times’ dining section.  This week they were focusing on White House chefs, which I found particularly interesting because of Michelle Obama’s commitment to children’s nutrition and gardening.  There was a recipe from the Obama’s favorite chef in Chicago, Rick Bayless, that caught my […]

Raw Energy & Antioxidant Trail Mix

Angie’s Raw Energy & Antioxidant Trail Mix   In honor of America’s favorite junk-food holiday, Super Bowl Sunday, I thought I would write about a healthy snack alternative.  I watched the game today, and even though I was disappointed that my Green Bay Packers didn’t even come close to being in the game, I am happy for New Orleans […]

Green Smoothies For Healing And Wellness

Raw Coconut-Orange-Cacao Bars

Raw Coconut-Orange-Cacao Bars Did I mention I was on a raw food kick lately?  I feel great – I’ve been juicing vegetables every day for the past couple of weeks and incorporating some sort of raw dish with every meal, including salads, raw nuts and seeds, fruits, fresh coconut smoothies, and delicious sauces made with […]

Hippie Granola Rolls

  **Note to those who are oat-sensitive: this recipe contains oats.**  Some of us gluten-free folks can handle the oats and some cannot.  Alas – if you are one of the unfortunate, try some quinoa flakes instead.  Otherwise, you can buy oats that are guaranteed to be wheat-free, such as Lara’s Rolled Oats.  Eat at […]

Juicing

  This week I am trying to incorporate as many detoxifying foods as possible after overdoing it on wine, chocolate and sugar (yes, I cheated) on my husband’s birthday. One of my favorite ways to detox is to juice fresh vegetables daily. All the pure, raw enzymes and vitamins and antioxidants will make you feel […]
