Raw Orange Lavender Granola 1

I’ve been trying to incorporate more raw foods in my diet and for the time being at least that means I’ve been eating raw throughout the day and eating a cooked meal at night with my partner.  While smoothies and fruit and veggies are great, sometimes I just want cereal for breakfast. And this raw orange and lavender granola fits the bill perfectly.

Raw Lemon Cream Pie!

Probably the best thing about being a food blogger is that you always have a really good excuse to make desserts. If you get an idea, you have to try it out, right?

This lemon cream pie is a perfectly delightful dessert. The lemon pie filling is light, fluffy and creamy in texture. It almost feels delicate.  With a little vanilla coconut cream around the edges and a sweet cookie-like crust, it’s pretty much dessert heaven.

A Very Untraditional Borscht…

A Very Untraditional Borscht…

One of my worst character traits is that I’m impulsive. That often means when I go to the farmers market I get carried away. I buy far too many things because they look pretty, or because I think “I can make a great x with that” without actually thinking about how much produce I’m buying and realistically what I’ll be able to do with it within a week. This soup is the result of one such farmers market buying spree. I had a ridiculous number of beets of all kinds that were in desperate need of being used. So I roasted them and made this delicious and heartwarming, but not quite traditional, borscht.

Raspberry & Pomegranate Lemonade (Green Smoothie)!

There’s pretty much no better way to get your day started than with a green smoothie. A nice thick blend of fruit and greens is just what you need to load up on vitamins and give you the energy you need to get up and go. And this green smoothie, with a super extra load of antioxidants from both the raspberries and pomegranate arils and vitamin C from the lemon, is extra special.

Arugula & Baby Kale Salad with Spicy Lemon Vinaigrette

Today is a good day: I’ve just bottled my first batch of kombucha. It’s not quite done yet, it still needs to go through its second fermentation, but so far, so good! Feeding my kombucha habit has become quite expensive, so I hope this will save me money and allow me to make my kombucha exactly the way I like it.  Now I’m counting down the hours until I get to try my first bottle.
