- 1/3 cup diced kiwi
- 1/3 cup diced watermelon
- 1/3 cup diced strawberries
- 1/3 cup diced pineapple
- 1/4 cup fresh pineapple juice or orange juice
Combine diced fruit in a bowl and fill each 5 oz cup with fruit. Add 1 tbsp of juice and insert craft sticks into each cup. They easily stay in place because of all the fruit. Place in the freezer a few hours until firm. To remove the pops from the cups, run under warm water a few seconds. Enjoy!
I have to make these!! Once it gets warm out :P
You have the power to heal your body.
Truth is that eating clean, raw, whole foods is a natural anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is the root cause of most bodily issues and illnesses. Consider using your diet as your healing mechanism and illness prevention program, instead of pills and chemicals that are more like bandaids, just covering up the problems.
Choose true foods.
Super foods = Super body
Eat more raw foods! Especially this time of year your body needs all the living enzymes it can get to fight off the various infections and winter blahs. I know I feel better when I eat more raw foods, the more raw I eat the less I get sick!
This smoothie recipe is a good start! Simple, delicious, and nutritious. I have all of these foods in my kitchen RIGHT NOW. I’ll blend it with some of the berries I got today =)
But don’t forget about your veggies my friends, try munching on raw veggies for a snack - you could even dip it in homemade guac. Just some ideas :) What are your raw favorite snacks or go-to meals?
Spinach Avocado Dip
Trying to eat more raw vegetables? The secret is dip!
This is by far my favorite homemade dip for raw veggies (My boyfriend’s obsession) and it’s crazy delicious on chicken for you paleo folk.
Walnut Currant Flaxmeal
- 4-5 Tbs Flax Seed
- 1 large banana
- 5 medium sized strawberries
- 1 Tbs dried black currants
- 2 Tbs raw walnuts
- Blend the flaxseed and place into a dry bowl.
- Blend 2/3 of the banana and all of the strawberries with a little bit of water. Place this new smoothie mixture over your ground flaxmeal and stir until it is a malt-o-meal consistancy. (Play with the liquid/dry ratios to create your desired texture)
- Cut up the rest of your banana and stir it with the berries and nuts into your flaxmeal. Serve or seal it in the fridge for a delicious breakfast :)
I usually prepare flaxmeal the night before and take it to work with me the next day. Try this recipe or try making your own combonations! I love having the pieces of dried fruits and nuts to fish around for. Message me if you’ve got your own delicious recipe!

A Raw Foodist’s Weekly Grocery list
My ask box is being weird… but Annasricosuave asked me if I have a weekly grocery list. My response:
Hey girl! I posted My Weekly Grocery List a long time ago, so it’s hidden in my blog. But you can view ALL of my raw posts here! This list is enough for me to have smoothies, salads, fresh juice and snacks all week! Hope it works for you :)
Hey friends, followers, subs! Don’t be shy if you’ve got questions or just want to say hi! I love all of you like this:
Ginger is crazy cheap and it’s great for you! These recipes look tasty, I’ll be giving them a try. Right now I’m all about juicing grapefruit, lemon, and ginger together with a dollop of raw honey mixed in. Best juice for the AM!
This plus my boyfriend, a dome home, yoga mat and a float tank and I’m in heaven =)
Detox & Digestion Green Juice
Ingredients: 6 celery stalks, 2 kiwi, 1 cucumber, 1 large broccoli floret
- Wash everything
- cut ends and skin off kiwi, then quarter
- quarter cucumber and broccoli stem
- break broccoli floret into small enough pieces to fit in the chute
Taste: Sweet and green
Benefits: The cucumber properties prevent water retention, at the same time the high water content re-hydrates the system. Celery juice reduces puffiness and prevents bloating. Broccoli cleanses the intestines and stimulates the liver. Kiwi is an excellent source of digestive enzymes!
Why? Aside from the fact that lemons refresh everything and anything, they are full of vitamin C. They have also been proven to reduce inflammation and the chances of cancer.
How? Oh what a versatile beast. Slice it and put it in water. Make lemonade. Squeeze it on fish, or chicken. Or like the Greeks on lamb. Drizzle it on sliced cucumber, or as zest over a dessert. Sky is the limit here, especially when they are in season during the summer.
I just juiced lemon with grapefruit and carrots this morning!
Ingredients: 2 limes, 1 grapefruit, 2 medium sized beets
Prep: Pretty simple and relatively quick:
- peel and quarter the limes
- peel and section grapefruit
- quarter beets (beet juice is a hell of a stain btw)
Taste: Sour & zingy with heavy notes of beet
