Nick and I have always been "healthy" eaters.  We don't do fast food, processed or frozen. Honestly, we've seen too many food documentaries.  Until recently though we've been actually eating healthy.  A fridge filled with food- raw food. Ya know, like the way food should be eaten- not a ton of ingredients, no chemicals, and local when possible.  It's been really fun learning about vegetables we didn't eat in the past and making them into something delicious each night.  It's been this fun little project- What fun thing are we going to eat tonight? Kale? Great! What do we do with it? Then, with a little help from the internet we've got something insanely delicious and, best part,  nutrient packed.  Minus the san pellegrino (a little guilty pleasure of mine) it really has been fun exploring new foods together.  So far this week we've done kale, brussel sprouts, sweet potato, salmon, a ton of raw veggies and a little bit of pasta.  My cousin suggested guacamole, lightly salted, heavily limed, mixed with raw chopped kale- YUM!  We are dying to try it! What are some of your favorite ways to prepare raw foods? We'd love suggestions!  


  1. my favorite sites for inspiration when it comes to eating healthy whole foods are sprouted kitchen and 101 cookbooks. if you're not familiar with them they are an awesome resource. happy green eating!

  2. My favorite is butternut squash. You can bake it in the oven at 400 for 40 minutes (stir halfway through). Put a litte agave nectar and salt and pepper on top and you have a delicious treat! I put it on top of spinach salads. :)

  3. Spaghetti Squash is a hit....roasted garbanzo beans tossed in a little olive oil with summer fav is arugula, watermelon, feta salad!

  4. oh, ladies- these are awesome suggestions / recommendations! can't wait to try them out!


Thank you for coming by and taking the time to comment. Have a wonderful day!
