Super Fast Avocado Pasta Marisa's Kitchen
I am all about cooking with the kiddos whenever possible :) Today for lunch we made our Avocado Pasta, similar to This One that I make for them normally that they love, but this time we did it all in one bowl (and a pot) :) They loved it and were even super happy to take turns mashing (and tasting!) ...

Weekend Reading, 7.27.14 Choosing Raw
Hello, everyone. I’m still in the depths of pre-move commotion: trying to keep up with work and tie up loose ends before leaving D.C., saying “bye for now” to my friends here, and slowly (too slowly) putting together boxes. Even so, I just took a little time to peruse some cool recipes and articles from the week. I hope you’ll ...

Catching Up AWESOME TO BE RAWSOME
When I was getting ready for bed, I was so tired I decided I didn’t need to take any melatonin. I was sure I’d sleep. And I did. The trouble was, I woke so often during the night, I didn’t get much quality rest. Tonight, it will be back to a half dose of melatonin, thank you anyway. My store ...
What I Ate Today on a Mostly Raw Food Diet {July 24, 2014} Fit on Raw
I could eat this meal plan everyday. Perfect. What did you eat today? Please share in the comments below! Go raw and be fit, Swayze P.S. Despite what you’ve been told, avoiding digestive leukocytosis is not a valid reason to eat a raw food diet. In fact, there are many claims made by raw foodists that are just downright wrong. In ...

Last 5 days to sign up for GSG Detox! Robyn's Blog
One of the things we have heard a number of times about the 26-day GreenSmoothieGirl Detox is a variation of this comment, by a holistic-oriented nurse: “I thought I knew a lot about nutrition, and my body. But WOW, I learned so much about the connection between my health, and food. It’s like 100 light bulbs turned on!” We welcome ...
Raw Recipe: Try This Versatile Walnut Based “Meatloaf” Green Smoothie Blog
Raw Recipe: Try This Versatile Walnut Based “Meatloaf” By Kim Van Genderen What I love about this recipe is it’s versatility. It can be “meatloaf,” but it could also be “tuna salad.” Because of the particular blend of veggies, spices and the consistency from the walnuts, I found myself thinking of it as a non-fishy tuna salad. Served it up ...

Thankful AWESOME TO BE RAWSOME
Yesterday was pretty routine. The Visitor had traveled far outside its 8″x 8″ box going several inches to the right. This morning, it was probably 18″ to the left of that. It’s like watching a clock’s hands move. They do but you can’t see it. I waited until I was sure the mailperson had run and went to get the ...
Fruits Are Not Really Cleansing Foods Dr. David Klein's Colitis & Crohn's Health Recovery Center Blog
Fruits Are Not Really Cleansing Foods “Fruits are often called cleansing foods. Actually they are incapable of intelligent action and cannot cleanse. But when a fruit-based raw diet is consumed, the body’s digestive and eliminative tasks are considerably lessened. Energy is available that was formerly diverted to digestion and toxin elimination. The body wisely utilizes this energy for the task ...

Consultant cardiologist admits to high cholesterol and leaves us confused The Raw Food Scientist
On Monday 7th July, I was listening to an interview with a consultant cardiologist who stated that women are 3 times more likely to die from heart disease than breast cancer, and that cholesterol was a contributing factor to this alarming statistic. However, in almost the next sentence, she assured us that we can have normal or even low cholesterol, ...
After I eat greasy/sugary “junk food,” I feel……….. Robyn's Blog
Food for thought! This really makes us think about how powerful addiction to junk food is. Since we feel AMAZING drinking greens, and we categorically feel like crap, eating junk. As the corollary to what I posted on, last time, Amy asked our readers to fill in the blank: “When I eat greasy/sugary “junk food” I feel __________.” The first ...
