I am sitting at my computer dreaming about Urban Remedies Raw Creme Carmel…If you have never hear of this company or had their products, you have to check them out! The Brownie was also mind blowing as was all of their desserts but I’m also so impressed with their juices!
I never order juice from anywhere thinking that making my own at home is always going to taste better. I’ve had juice from some of the new companies out there and they are ok…good in a pinch. But, these were so amazing! So full of flavor and I felt like they were energetically alive still! I had three different kinds and also an Almond Milk. This was better than what I make. They also have Juice Cleanse kits.
They also have some wellness kits that would make great holiday presents. Check them out at UrbanRemedy.com!
Even on my raw food diet, I’m feeling like I need a cleanse…It’s actually been so long since I’ve don’t a juice fast, so Im starting one today. If you would like to cleanse with me, post a comment here on what you juice, recipe, etc.. maybe we’ll have a bunch of people doing an end of summer fast together!
8 carrots, 1 apple, piece of lemon, large chunk of ginger… yummy!
Leah (my amazing chef from Grezzo when I had my raw food restaurants) came over tonight and picked a bunch of green heirloom tomatoes from my garden and pickled them. Look at these colors!!!!
She added a bunch of spices, fennel, coriander, cinnamon stix, garlic…added apple cider vinager… Can’t wait till they marinate!
A Raw Food keeper that Ill be using all the time!
I just tried this new coconut opener from Coco-Jack! For those of you who shy away from opening coconuts for fear of slicing your hand off or if you just have a hard time knowing how to cut into them while saving the coconut milk from splashing all over your kitchen counters, you’ll want to check this handy little tool out!
What I really love is the perfect round hole it leaves in the top of the coconut so that you can easily scrape the meat out and you can also close them up if your not going to be using the whole coconut right away. Love the scoop for the meet also!
Ive tried a lot of coconut knives and other gadgets over the years that promised to make opening my Thai baby coconuts a breeze but they never delivered and I have always gone back to my kitchen knives and hatchets. Ive ruined a lot of knives and my hatchet is pretty intimidating for the faint of heart. It can also make a mess.
Love this! The mat and the bag are pretty cool also… you can buy just the Coco-Jack and a mallet or bundles.
Let me know how you like it if you get one!

Ive been making a raw green energy soup in the mornings lately instead of my raw food smoothies.
This is the one I made this morning. You can alter the spices and seasonings to your liking.
In a blender or food processor, blend all of the ingredients except the Dulse, until smooth. Once this is blended well, add the Turmeric, Cayenne and Cumin and blend again. Pour into a large bowl and add Dulse pieces. I like using a vitamix so it comes out really smooth and creamy.
I usually put a ton of greens, swiss chard, kale, sunflower greens, celery and cucumber along with chia seeds, and a host of other raw foods in my smoothies but this morning I tried something new.
1 red grapefruit
Large handful of spinach
Burdock root – about an inch size piece
Scoop of vanilla Sunwarrior powder
Blend in Vitamix. So smooth and creamy and filling!
For New Years Eve, I made some raw food to bring to a friends. The dessert was Raw Peppermint Brownies.
I adapted the brownie recipe from Raw Food for Everyone. Actually, the brownie part is still the same but I made a peppermint frosting instead of the chocolate sauce topping.
Brownies – Makes 20
2 cups pecans
2 cups walnuts
2 cups hazelnuts
4 cups cacao powder
4 cups pitted dates
1½ cups agave nectar
1. Put 1 cup pecans, walnuts, and hazelnuts in a food processor. Blend until finely ground. Remove the ground nuts and transfer to a bowl, then repeat with remaining nuts. Put the cacao powder into the food processor and pulse a few times to get rid of any lumps. Add the cacao to the ground nuts and stir to combine.
2. Put the agave and dates in a food processor (no need to wash it). Blend until a coarse paste forms. Remove to another bowl.
3. Put 1/3 of the nut mixture and 1/3 of the date mixture in a food processor (again, no need to wash it). Pulse for about 30 seconds until the mixture is crumbly and moist. Transfer a bowl. Repeat two more times. When are three batches are in the bowl, mix well.
4. Evenly spread the brownie batter into an 11-inch x 7-inch pan. You can cut the brownies immediately into large or small pieces, or cover and store at room temperature for 5 to 7 days
For the frosting:
1 cup coconut butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
2-3 drops of essential oil of peppermint or use a peppermint extract
I used a small blender to blend it all and melt it together. When this is nice and creamy, spread it over the top of the brownies. You can put it in the fridge to harden but then I left it out at room temperature and it was creamier.
