One of my favorite things to do when experimenting with new raw food recipes is to make my “former” favorite foods in a raw version. I love crepes.

One of my favorite raw food recipes for an after work treat has always been chips and guacamole. Trying to be healthier, I switched to blue corn chips with flax.
