Grow and Juice Your Own Wheatgrass

Grow and Juice Your Own Wheatgrass

Fresh wheatgrass is a great way to energize your body in the morning (or any time of day, for that matter) and a good alternative to less healthy stimulants such as caffeine. It increases your metabolism, restores alkalinity to your blood, detoxifies the liver, contains tons of beneficial enzymes and can even help cure illnesses....

Cleansing with the Clean Program

(svenska nedan) Even though we do our best to eat healthy and exercise regularly, there are times when stress, too much work or just lack of time make us fall off the wagon. Like when you find yourself drinking bucketloads of coffee every morning to get into the work groove, and a few glasses of...
PM's Mexican Lettuce Wraps

PM’s Mexican Lettuce Wraps

(svenska nedan) I’ve been on the road quite a bit lately, and it’s hard to make food when you’re not in your own kitchen, right? That’s why I love this recipe for Mexican Lettuce Wraps by Philip McCluskey. It’s a great, healthy, raw take on tacos and would be easy to make wherever you are....
Chicks!

Chicks!

(svenska nedan) This past Friday, we picked up two little baby chicks from the back of a farm store. One is a Buff Orpington and the other a Gold Laced Wyandotte (that just sounds poetic, doesn’t it?). They are the tiniest, fluffiest things ever, and make little peeping sounds from inside the moving box that...
Black Walnuts, Black Hands

Black Walnuts, Black Hands

(svenska nedan) I have two black walnut trees in the backyard, and decided last weekend that I would finally start harvesting them. I had watched tutorials online on how to do this, and they all said that you should wear gloves because the stuff does stain. BS, I thought, and since I didn’t have any...
Community + Garden

Community + Garden

(svenska nedan) One of the things I love most about living in a small place is the sense of community. There is a common sense of purpose and belonging that I think it’s hard to find in larger cities. Just the other day, I came home and found this gorgeous box of fresh veggies at...

Boris Lauser Talks About His Raw Life Festival Menu

(svenska nedan) On August 1st, hundreds of raw foodies will gather on the Swedish countryside to enjoy five days of raw food and fun at this year’s Raw Life Festival. I so wish I could be there, mostly to enjoy all the delicious food that will be prepared by brilliant raw chef Boris Lauser. Trained...
Green Juice at SFO

Green Juice at SFO

I almost never “live blog” like this, but tonight I felt like I had to, for two reasons: 1. I’m at the new-ish Virgin America terminal at the airport in San Francisco and there is actually free wifi! (Which means I can blog.) This almost never happens, right? And all you had to do was...

Raw Life Festival 2012 (video + special discount code)

(svenska nedan) If you’ll be anywhere near Karlstad, Sweden on August 1-5, you should definitely sign up for the Raw Life Festival. It is the largest Northern European celebration of raw food, super health and a sustainable lifestyle. I went last year and it was amazing. You’ll attend lectures and workshops with leading raw living...
Smokey Jicamasalad with Kale & Corn

Smokey Jicamasalad with Kale & Corn

(svenska nedan) Since I discovered it a few years back, I’ve really learned to love jicama, a Mexican root vegetable with a mild, slightly sweet flavor and satisfying crunch. It’s best eaten raw and perfect for slicing or grating into a refreshing summer salad. It works really well with chili powder or, better yet, smoked...

Red, White & Blue

Red, White & Blue

(se nedan för svenska) Let’s face it, most holidays revolve around eating crap. Why does it have to be that way? You don’t have to eat burgers and BBQ steak just because it’s Independence Day. Make your own decisions, stick to eating what feels right for you and let everyone else comment all they want....
