  1. Right now I am most excited by making a variety of raw collard wraps! I usually use a nut or seed pate- or sometimes pesto- or an avocado spread- then I load in all kinds of veggies, and voila! To eat I dip in a sweet and spicy red peeper sauce! Yum!

  2. I would love 2 tickets to the raw food expo in Sebastopol. My favorite breakfast this summer is chunks of fresh fruit mixed in green smoothie pudding. This morning I blended pineapple, mango, nectarine, blueberries and banana plus parsley, dino kale, and fenugreek sprouts. I poured the smoothie in 2 bowls and mixed in 2T chia seeds. It set to thicken for 20 minutes while I cut pieces of the same fruit plus raspberries to stir in. YUM!

  3. Thanks so much for the giveaway! The Expo looks great. Right now I'm completely in love w/the buckwheat crispies recipe from one of Sarma's books. So crunchy and delicious!

  4. I would love to make it there, but I'll be in California in August so I can't make two trips. On another note, the face lift to the site is nice.

  5. My raw foods are still pretty simple so my current fave is a salad w/ walnuts cranberries & a raspberry dressing.

    The new site looks great!

  6. Right now I am enjoying making grape/strawberry/cashew/coconut pies. I am new to the raw dessert world but I whole new vista has opened up. I was a little disappointed that it did not gel as thick as I had expected. I will try chia seeds like Diana is doing or maybe I will attempt to use some Irish Moss. It is delish in any form though. Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. I'm loving starting my day with a green smoothie! Kale, apple, shredded coconut, almond milk, banana, a fig, a plum. Heavenly.

  8. i would be so stoked to go to the expo!

    my current fav raw dish is what i call breakfast crunch salad.

    i chop up a crisp apple and a few stalks of celery, toss them together with a tablespoon of chia seeds and raisins, and a handful of walnuts. then i top it with a sauce i make with almond and sunflower seed butter and warm water and almond milk to loosen it up and add a pinch of cinnamon and agave.

  9. I LOVE my green chocolate smoothies with raw brown rice Sun Warrior protein powder, frozen cherries, greens with some cacao buckwheat crispies! YUMMY!!!

  10. i'm also definitely interested in the expo!

    i've been enjoying pureed frozen bananas with spirulina, a dash of stevia, vanilla bean, and peppermint. then i drizzle chocolate sauce over the top (coconut oil, cacao, vanilla bean and honey), which hardens immediately. it's a divine mint chocolate chip treat, and everyone i serve it to has swooned!

  11. I am soooooo happy that some of you might be able to make it in my place! Yippee!

    And glad you're enjoying the blog's new look! I was a bit nervous, not wanting to disorient you guys. ;-)

    Can't wait 'til Sunday to announce the tickets winner!!!

  12. I've been making kale chips from homegrown kale dipped in a tahini dressing and dehydrated. I can eat a whole batch..
