Recently I posted a recipe for a Coconut Yogurt Chia Pudding and I talked a bit about why I love Chia Seeds so much, and how getting them into recipes in creative ways is really important for me. They are my primary source for Omega-3s, a fatty acid that is vital for brain function, and I eat them pretty much every day.…Read more →
Fermented foods are a really important part of my high raw diet. Apart from reducing sugar cravings, and being RIDICULICIOUSLY TASTY!!!!, they have a ton of incredible health benefits. Most of my fermented food action comes from coconut probiotic dishes, mainly kefir drinks and yogurt. I’m getting more into kombucha and sauerkraut these days too, and am working on learning how to make them well enough where sharing my experiences with it is valuable.…Read more →
When I first transitioned to a high raw diet, I was coming off a very traditional western diet that involved very heavy, processed white carb breakfasts. My standard breakfast was either cereal or a full english. Needless to say, it wasn’t serving me. However, I had become incredibly accustomed to having a very large meal in the morning, and mentally, thought that I still needed a big filling breakfast in the morning.…Read more →
I’m going to come out straight away and say this : I am sleeping on lemongrass.

Certain things really don’t go well with it, whereas others are surprisingly delicious pairings.…Read more →

Purple Dragonfruit may be the pretttiest of all fruits. I mean it’s just so vibrant it almost pops out of existence. And because it doesn’t have the strongest of flavors, it’s really perfect for using as a food coloring. When my breakfast is purple it makes me happy! I used this in concert with a blackberry granola, which made for absurd amounts of purple that morning.…Read more →
