Almond milk, papaya, and peach smoothie

Tropical Smoothie

I recently made a big batch of almond milk, purchased a papaya because of claims that it aids digestion, and was given some peaches: so I decided to blend them all together and it resulted in a delicious, lightly sweet smoothie. Give it a try!

Mint Chocolate Coconut Tapioca Pudding

 
I've been trying to perfect chia seed pudding and have fallen flat so many times...until recently. I was inspired by my friend Vanessa's recipe on The Green Girl Next Door, and with a few little adjustments to fit my diet and palate I came up with something insanely heavenly! As Vanessa mentions in her post, chia seed is not just a great thickener, it's also very nutritious and contains: omega-3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, fiber, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, and zinc.

Raw Vegetable "Fried Rice"


I love the challenge of making creative meals with limited ingredients, especially when they're extra healthy. This recipe was adapted from Cafe Gratitude's "Raw Veggie Rice", which is a raw dish I've never made before, nor is it common in raw recipe books. I added a little oil and salt to it, but those could easily be left out. The taste is savory and refreshing - a cross between rice and a salad.

This organic dressing is super easy and quick to make - full of flavor and can be modified to fit your taste buds. I modified it a little from the Raw Green Goddess Dressing Kris Carr's Crazy Sexy Diet.
 
It's gluten-free, soy-free, salt-free, sugar-free, and anti-candida diet friendly. I used a little olive oil, but it could probably be omitted and subbed with more water.

One of my favorite recipe books is called "Unprocessed" by Chef AJ. It is full of great food that is oil-free, salt-free, and refined sugar-free, and the tag line is "how to achieve vibrant health and your ideal weight" - sounds good to me! Everything is very easy to make and usually consists of ingredients that are in the kitchen already. This recipe caught my eye because it's a unique twist on one of my favorite snacks: guacamole. Guac can get expensive and it's also pretty fattened (though it consists of healthy fats). Sweet peas have a similar appearance to avocado, so if you blend them just right this turns out very similar to traditional guacamole.

Last week when I did a poll on the Eco-Vegan Gal Facebook page about what video recipe you'd like to see next the majority voted for "entrée" - you wish is my command. Since I'm on a raw food kick, I decided to make a living foods dish for dinner last night. I flipped through my favorite raw recipe books and felt that it was a sign when I found the same dish in 3 of them (give or take a few ingredients)! With a few modifications I whipped up a satisfying, filling, nutritious dish that my boyfriend even liked, and almost no packing was used (completely plastic free!). What I ended up with is most like "Stirred, Not Fried" from Chef AJ's "Unprocessed" book.
 
This recipe is free of oil, salt, and sugar, and it's anti-candida. I purchased all organic ingredients at Whole Foods for a cost of $20, and it yielded about 4 servings.
