Corn Soup....amazing!

Day 4 and we need a change. I thawed out a bag of organic corn. Maybe not completely raw, but they only blanch it...so let me dream.

I put a bag of thawed corn in the vita-mix, added cilantro, a juiced lime, and salt and pepper. We blended till it was a bit arm and served with cucumber slices. It was very, very good!!

Lettuce Wraps...YUM!

This is day 2. We are seeing a bit of cravings around here. But, that was to be expected. We are juicing, eating seeds, nuts. Plenty of fruits.
Now I am feeling a bit better, I need to start getting recipes more organized! This is on tonight's menu:

Lettuce Wraps


* 2 very ripe avocados
* 3 tomatoes, diced
* 1/2 jalapeno pepper, diced
* 2 tbsp yellow onion, diced
* 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
* 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
* kernels from one ear raw organic corn
* 2 tsp fresh lime juice
* 6-8 large romaine lettuce leaves


In a medium sized bowl, mash the avocado.

Add remaining ingredients and stir until well mixed.

Spread 2-3 tablespoons of this mixture onto lettuce leaves and wrap. Enjoy!

Hemp Brownies...no, not the kind you heard about in school!

First, there is a BIG misunderstanding about Hemp. Hemp is not pot. It is a cousin, and doesn't contain the THC that marijuana contains. It will not get you high.

Okay, now the yummy recipe!

Raw Chocolate Hemp Brownies

Hemp seeds are a nutritional powerhouse. Try these power bars for an excellent boost of protein!

* 3/4 cup ground hemp/hemp butter
* 1/4 cup hemp seeds
* 1/2 cup almond meal
* 1/8 cup agave
* 1/4 cup cocoa powder


1. Grind 3/4 cup of hempseed until it becomes hemp butter (I use a coffee grinder)
2. Add hemp seeds, almond meal, agave, and cocoa powder
3. Press into a square container that will allow for desired thickness.
4. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes or until hardened.
5. Cut into small squares and serve.

Breakfast Ideas

I will try to post with as many "normal" ingredients as possible. Just remember, if you would begin to sew, you would have to buy a sewing machine, thread, scissors, measuring tape, etc. this is no different. You will most likely need to buy an appliance or two, and maybe even foods you would not have. The good news is, it is food. And good food at that. It will not go to waste!

Here are a few ideas for a raw breakfast.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Serves 2

raw diet recipes

Blueberries & 'Cream'

1/2 c pine nuts, soaked 6 hours
1/2 c water
1 T maple syrup
3 pints blueberries

Blend nuts, water & maple syrup at high for 2 minutes. Pour over individual servings of fresh berries. (you could also use strawberries)


Apple Cereal

1 apple of your choice grated
1 banana chopped
small handful coconut shredded
1/4 cup soaked almonds chopped
1/4 cup sunflower sprouts (I think I would use Quinoa myself)
splash of almond milk or coconut water
1 tsp raw honey
dash of cinnamon or nutmeg (we even like pumpkin pie spice)

Mix in a large bowl. Eat...This is great comfort food!!!
