Tasty Tuesday: Banana Nut Pancakes

Last week a lot of people were making a big thing out of IHOP’s Pancake Day.  Many of my friends from high school talked about getting free pancakes and dousing them with sugary sweet syrup.  A lot of the follow up comments said things like “It’s time for a nap!” or “Suffering from a sugar [...]

The Ultimate Kitchen Gadget

People ask me all the time what kitchen gadget I think they should get first when starting on a raw and living food diet.  I get asked this question a lot by people who are just interested in improving their health, too.  The options they normally give me are: 1) A Juicer 2) A Dehydrator [...]

Heavenly Goji Berries

I just love goji berries.  I didn’t at first, and it wasn’t because I didn’t like the taste, it was always a texture thing for me.  I never knew how wonderful goji berries could be because every bag of them that I bought the berries were rock hard and chewy (in a bad way) like [...]

Finishing the Green Smoothie Challenge

We finished out our New Year’s 5-Day Green Smoothie Challenge strong and enjoyed every moment of it.    I wanted to do something special on Day 5 to celebrate the end of the GSC.  I remembered our vet telling us that our cats should eat more wheatgrass.  We can’t just give it to our cats [...]

This is slightly old news, but I just wanted to write a quick post to make sure everyone knew what was going on.  Cafe Gratitude, an amazing vegan/raw food chain mainly based in North California, is closing all of their Northern California locations.  The only Cafe Gratitude location that will remain open is the one [...]

Top 15 Recipes from Raw Food for Everyone

Now that I’ve uncooked my way through Raw Food for Everyone, people keep on asking me which recipes are my favorites.  Honestly, I’d say that there were only a handful of recipes that I didn’t like, everything else in the book was great!  So chances are, if you make any of the recipes you’ll love [...]

Kelly & Alissa Week 46

I felt like I was cranking through recipes last week!  I knocked a lot off my list.  I started getting really excited when I updated my spreadsheet for this blog project and realized that I only had a single digit number of recipes left to make!  I was a little giddy when I told Rob, [...]

Kelly & Alissa: Week 44

Last week I plowed my way through a whopping 14 new recipes from Alissa Cohen’s Raw Food for Everyone.  14 recipes is quite a lot, so I guess I should get straight to the point: what did I make and how did it turn out?

Kelly & Alissa: Week 42

Somehow, I’m not really sure how, my week numbers got all messed up again.  If I were still planning to finish up all of the recipes from Alissa Cohen’s Raw Food for Everyone on December 1st, last week would have been my 42nd week working on this project, so that’s the number I’m going to [...]
