Thumbnail image for Orange Thyme Salad with Glazed Beets and Spiced Walnuts

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 am a big proponent of keeping things simple. […]

If I don’t have a batch of raw crackers or flat bread around, I am at extreme risk of snack attacks. You know what I am talking about. The attacks that an apple or an orange can’t curb. The attacks that find me riffling through the cabinets for something crunchy and satisfying. The attacks that can lead me […]

Go figure, I finally jump onto the Irish Moss train, which has been touted as a super food in the raw food community for years, only to wake up to a weekly email in my in-box from Dr. Andrew Weil warning about the dangers of carrageenan. What does this have to do with Irish Moss? […]

Sometimes I just want a bite of something sweet. But I still want it to be healthy, quick and easy. People call these “kitchen sink” cookies (everything but the kitchen sink) or “dump” cookies (you just dump stuff in them), but what ever you want to call them, they are great. Requiring no dehydrator or […]

  I am often asked where the inspiration for my recipes comes from. Almost universally, it is the ingredients that inspire me. I often just browse the produce section, grabbing things that catch my eye. On my last trip, two items really stood out – endive and pomegranates. They combine in this recipe to not […]

Harvest Dehydrator

October 31, 2011

One of the questions that I get constantly is whether raw food recipes that involve a dehydrator can be made with an oven instead. Unless your oven can be set below 118 degrees, the answer is no – even convection ovens don’t have the airflow needed for effective dehydration, and the concentrated heat destroys key nutrients […]

I have a friend who is very raw food adverse, only because she really hasn’t tried anything. She stopped over as I was making these. I asked her if she wanted to try […]

I love coconut butter. You will notice that in many of my recipes, I use coconut butter instead of coconut oil. Why? Because it has a richer flavor and a better texture than coconut oil. But coconut butter is both expensive and hard for some people to find. The solution? Make your own. But be […]
