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.

Creamy, rich, and sweet, this raw recipe is easy to make and free of refined sugar. If you get everything in bulk then it's very eco-friendly as well!

In 2009 I met a woman named Violette and she told me about this amazing raw shake she makes everyday, and then she kindly emailed me the recipe to share with you! Violette got it from her friend Rizwan Mirza, and it's absolutely fantastic.

Mary's Tropical Fruit Smoothie


My sister Mary sent me this recipe a few years ago with a very cute picture of her enjoying it with the GlassDharma straw I gave her. Though it's a little high in natural sugars, it's a great occasional treat when you need something refreshing and crave some tropical fruit. If you want to make it extra eco, buy fresh fruit and freeze it yourself - you can even juice your own oranges! Then buy some flaxseed in bulk and it's completely packaged free!

Vegan, Alkaline Recipes from Nik Tyler


Way back in 2009 Nik Tyler (aka, the man who inspired me to be vegan) went to "two transformative weeks at The Rancho De Sol-Ph Miracle Ranch" and came back with incredible enthusiasm and energy. So much so that he sent me daily emails of the foods he had been making, with beautiful pictures. I posted these on Eco-Vegan Gal and they are some of the most popular recipes on the site. 
 
These recipes are also gluten-free, soy-free, oil-free, sugar-free and anti-candida. Some are also salt-free and raw.

Spinach-Mushroom Soft Tacos

 
Here's another fantastic gluten-free recipe from my best friend Sarah, who couldn't keep her paws out of my kitchen! Though we enjoyed going out for meals, we also had fun taking home food from the farmer's market, Co-Opportunity, and Whole Foods and turning it into to some amazing dishes...or rather, Sarah made them and I ate them. ; )
 
After falling in love with Daiya and some Food For Life's sprouted corn tortillas, she whipped up this scrumptious fare:

A friend of mine saw this recipe from French Women Don’t Get Fat on the Today Show and thought it looked great. It's super simple and gluten-free & soy-free - my favorite kinds of recipes! I'll let you know when I try it, and please comment below if you've made it.

Since going gluten-free, soy-free, and moving towards sugar-free my food choices have become pretty limited and basic. Well, limited in the processed food sense. One of my favorite snacks right now are LÄRABARs, especially the Peanut Butter Cookie flavor, however they can add up in price and packaging. So I decided to try making them myself since the ingredients are just dates, peanuts, and salt.
