Cole Slaws, Spicy & Sweet


Since our week of raw, we’ve been trying to incorporate something raw into almost every dinner.  While we love standard lettuce salads, we need a bit of a break from them.  We also  love the middle eastern cabbage salad we’ve been eating with our raw falafel.  I was hesitating to make a standard American cole […]

Week of Raw Days 6 & 7: Taco Salad, Taco Night


After our awesome meal on Friday, and then awesome leftovers on Saturday, we finally started to settle into our raw diet. Things felt more easy-going and we started looking forward to dinner again. We’re huge fans of Mexican food and we’re huge fans of re-using meal ingredients creatively, so on Sunday, we thought we’d try […]

Week of Raw Day 5: Leftovers (and lunches)!


Our meal on Friday was so awesome, we had it again on Saturday! As with most people, a lot of our meals–especially lunches–come in the form of leftovers. Since eating raw usually means eating fresh, we’ve found that we had fewer leftovers this last week. We did end up with lots of pre-prepped ingredients for […]

Week of Raw Day 4: Falafel and Cashew Ice Cream


Victory at last! After a few days of good-but-not-great raw food, we have finally achieved greatness. After days of planning and preparation, the raw falafel we’ve been working on were finally done–and were delicious. We’ve been struggling for years now with homemade falafel–in any form and any way of cooking. We’ve never found just the […]

Week of Raw Day 3: Mexican Stuffed Peppers


On this, the afternoon of day 4, I can state happily that my caffeine withdrawal seems to be in check. I don’t think I’ve quite re-acquired my previous coffee-infused laserbeam-like focus, but things are looking up. Last night, we made another recipe from The Complete Book of Raw Food: Mexican Stuffed Peppers. We’ve been trying to […]

Week of Raw Day 2: Pad Thai


It is currently 10:15 am. I have been up since 8:30 am. What have I been doing with my morning, you ask? Preparing raw foods and cleaning up, of course! This is the sink load of dishes I’ve already produced this morning: This accounts for our morning breakfast shake, the raw almond milk we made […]

Week of Raw Day 1: Tomato Basil Cream Pasta & Carrot Cake


The first thing I learned about myself and my diet yesterday is that I am officially coffee’s bitch. Coffee, it would seem, is calling all the shots. Amy and I switched to half caf a year or two ago, so I thought I was in the clear, that I could just ditch coffee any time […]

Week of Raw: Day 0 – Plan of Attack, Blue & Bei’s Salad


Friends, forgive me in advance for what I’m sure will have to be a muddled, rambling, haze of a post. I haven’t had any coffee. In fact, I’m not planning on having any today or for the next 6 days; Amy and I are embarking on a week-long raw diet! When most people think raw, […]

Kale Chips


Over the winter holidays, our excellent friends Blue and Bei were in town. Catching up one afternoon, Blue brought over a batch of Buddhist-made kale chips, which we proceeded to inhale. They don’t sound like they would be as awesome as they are–they’re crispy, salty, and sort of cheesy-tasting–like a perfect popcorn, with just a […]

Raw Food Tuesday: Pesto Pasta & Rawsage


Amy decreed yesterday that today would be Raw Food Tuesday (stolen shamelessly from What the Hell Does a Vegan Eat Anyway), which probably means that we shouldn’t have had that Chik’n Club Sammich for lunch…we did, however blaze a new trail in raw food dinners. Well, a new trail for us: rawsage & pesto-laden zucchini-based […]
