Raw Trail Mix

3 Comments

  What kind of raw food is ideal for traveling? This yummy trail mix is a super great start! I’m heading out in the morning on my first trip over seas!  It’s a missions trip to Europe with my church, and we’ll be doing some construction work, sports, arts/crafts, singing and other outdoor activities. It’s going to be so exciting! But also exhausting… so at first I was at a loss as to what kind of raw food would fill me up quick, give me energy, but also taste really good.  I’d say raw trail mix is the perfect match. Every ingredient in this mix is a super food in itself. By snacking on a nutritious combination of dried fruits […]

Raw Soup (cream of spinach)

07/25/2011

3 Comments

This raw cream of spinach soup is completely scrumptious and satisfying even if you eat just a little! Tastes delicious warmed up, or fresh out of the frig. The chopped spinach leaves give it a pretty look and  great texture, while the raw cashews provide a delicately creamy base. This raw soup is a good way to increase your intake of raw protein, magnesium, fiber, and the important amino acid tryptophan.  Just one ounce of raw cashews contains an impressive amount of raw minerals, ready to nourish our bodies. It may even help relieve mild symptoms of depression. Maybe that’s why God shaped cashews like a smile…. Raw Soup 1 1/2 cup raw milk 1 cup raw cashew butter 2 tsp. sea salt […]

Raw Cheese

Cheese is one of my all-time favorite foods, and learning how to make this recipe was a real treat for me. I was surprised at how easy it is to prepare. It tastes absolutely wonderful, and goes great with other foods too. We have gallons of raw goat’s milk this time of year, and my Grandmother wanted to teach me how to use it for raw cheese. Wow, I am so glad she did! (And by the way, using raw cow’s milk works just as good!) This is not a firm cheese. It reminds me of a softer version of feta… or a fine curd cottage cheese. Superb topping for salads, crackers, and other dishes. I also feel so good eating this […]

Potato Chips Recipe (potato free!)

These golden babies are AWESOME! And they’re not even made from potatoes!!! My Aunt tasted them yesterday and was like, “OH MY GOSH…… SHANAAAA! THEY TASTE BETTER THAN REAL POTATO CHIPS!”  I have to say I was surprised by how incredible they are. Each chip is lightly coated with olive oil, topped with spices to give it an amazing flavor, and then dehydrated. When you pop one in your mouth… they even have that crispy  crunch that only a real chip can have. Praise the Lord that there are still greasy foods that are good for you!!! 🙂 Raw Potato Chips Directions: Slice as many zucchini as your dehydrator will hold, slice them a little over 1/8 inch thick. (If […]

Raw Cheesecake

Mmmmm….. raw cheesecake.  I can’t believe how heavenly this is! My whole family loves it. I made it for the first time a couple days ago, and now I’m dying to spread the word! You just GOTTA try this!!!!!!!! It brings to mind one of my earliest memories-  my 3rd birthday. We had a party in my grandparent’s kitchen where my Mom made me and my little friends this great big strawberry cheesecake. (There was always a battle over who would get the first piece.) Through the years, we’ve tried some other desserts… but strawberry cheesecake just sticks around. In my opinion, there’s nothing quite like that soft creaminess in your mouth…. with that fruity flavor, so thick and rich. So […]

Chocolate covered raisins are one of my favorite treats ever! (I especially love nibbling on them when I’m watching a movie!) Sometimes I get a bad sweet tooth and I’m just dying for something rich, but I still want to know I’m building my health at the same time… so I tried making raw chocolate covered raisins today and enjoyed them so much! These darlings are pretty tasty and easy too! It’s hard to mess them up….  they still turn out great even if you like more/less honey, cacao or flavors. Chocolate Covered Raisins 1/4 cup Raw Almond Butter 2 TBS Raw Honey 1 TBS Raw Cacao (or raw carob) 1 tsp Vanilla Flavor 1/2 tsp Maple Flavor 1/2 tsp […]

Raw Honey Cinnamon Mini-Rolls

My whole family loves this raw food dessert. It’s sweet , sticky and absolutely delicious! It does require a dehydrator, and takes some time to make, but I think it’s worth it. When it comes to raw food desserts, it’s not always easy to find one that really hits the spot, but these flavorful little treats are just right. (They remind me of tiny Sugar Cinnamon Rolls.) When added to food, cinnamon may help to stop bacterial growth, making it a great raw food preservative.  I love the nutritional value of this raw food dessert  almost as much as I love the flavor! Cinnamon has become one of my favorite spices because of it’s amazing health benefits. According to recent studies, just […]

Raw Cabbage Salad

I absolutely love this raw cabbage salad!  Sometimes I can’t get enough. My friends and family love it too. It’s a really tasty mixture of crisp freshness and rich flavor. Besides being packed with vitamin c and iodine, raw cabbage is rich in fiber (roughage).  The human body depends on the amount of fiber we feed it, to maintain good health. It is a common problem these days for people to not get enough roughage in their diets, and if neglected it can lead to serious ailments such as constipation, stomach ulcers, headaches, indigestion, and skin problems. This raw cabbage salad can be an excellent way to make sure we get the fiber (and other vital nutrients) our bodies are asking for. Raw […]
