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!

It has taken a few years to perfect this recipe but it is finally time to let the secret out that many of my private clients and students have known for a while now. I have been selling this cream at my raw food trainings, to friends and family and its now available to all of you!
This deeply nourishing skin cream is made from truly natural ingredients. It is perfect for a daily moisturizing cream (I use it every morning before putting on makeup and at night after washing my face before going to bed) and has also been used for problem and troubled skin.
Each ingredient used has been selected according to its healing properties. I have listed them below with a short description of each. This cream is made in small batches, by hand, at low temperatures so as not to destroy the healing properties of each ingredient.
This cream will last for months if you use it sparingly. A little goes a very long way. You will notice the difference in your skin within days. Use this cream for 30 days and your skin will be transformed!
Here are some testimonials:
“LOVE LOVE LOVE this cream. I feel like I have new skin! Love the texture and feel of this cream. It’s done wonders for my complexion. Thanks!”
“Alissa, I bought the abundance cream from you at your certification training last year. I need more, PLEASE! When will you be making another batch of this? I began using it as just a face cream and fell in love with it. I then I decided to try it on my psoriasis. I could not believe how much this helped! I have used everything in the last 15 years to help with the psoriasis and this cream worked better than anything I’ve ever tried. I wanted to ask you when you would have more and if I could buy this in a bigger quantity?”
“Hi Alissa, Its Donna from the last training class. I bought one of your creams in class and wish I bought a few more. This is the best face cream. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now and my skin feels so smooth and soft and hydrated. Please let me know when I can order more once its up on your site for sale.
Thanks for this amazing cream!”

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!
