This is the FlicFloc. It works by forcing the dried grain through two steel rollers. There aren’t a lot of grains that I use in raw food preparation, but raw, sprouted flaked oats can really provide interesting texture, taste and substance, without all the fat and calories in nuts. And oats are energy producing powerhouses […]

I am alway amazed at the difference in people’s body types, and their ability to burn or store their calories. I store, my sweetie burns. Maybe it is because he runs (fast) over 16 miles a week and throws in 3 weight workouts on top of it. But even if he didn’t, I can guarantee […]

I am not going to lie, this salad has a lot going on. But in a well paired, delicious way. Orange spiced walnuts, balsamic glazed beets, a wonderful orange- thyme-walnut dressing…it’s tough not to love all these flavors. The best part is they love each other!

I don’t remember when I had my first bite of pesto. I do remember that it was love at first taste. The explosion of garlic, the freshness of the basil, the decadence of the cheese, I was hooked. My second epiphany came when I was introduced to avocado pesto through one of Chloe Coscarelli’s recipes. I mean seriously. Beyond […]

A week and a half ago I threw a dinner party. It wasn’t your typical party as I fed an entire group of non-vegans a completely vegan dinner. There was raw food and some cooked food.

A while back, I bought a doughnut pan. It seemed like a good idea at the time. You could bake doughnuts (gluten free and healthy, of course) instead of frying them. Frying is a word that no longer exists in my vocabulary. I put the pan in the cupboard and promptly forgot about it. That […]

Today’s post was supposed to be about buckwheat. I have been soaking, sprouting, and grinding all week.
