Rawfully Tempting's Sensational Red Cabbage Slaw

Quick, easy, refreshing....delicious! I recently harvested an amazing batch of sunflower seed shoots and wanted to feature them in a salad that was a snap to prepare. Obviously, if you don't have sunflower shoots, you may use other sprouts...but I highly suggest giving them a shot, they are my favorite sprouts of all!!!

RT's Quick and Easy Cranberry Relish

Wishing all all who celebrate, a fabulous Happy Thanksgiving. May you treasure time with friends and/or family. While I won't be with my entire family tomorrow, I will be with my adorable grandson Leo, my younger daughter, SIL, and their family. I know it will be a fabulous day!

Enjoy the day, eat as healthy as you can and you'll be happier the next day...but enjoy whatever it is you decide to eat...JOY and gratitude are most important tomorrow!! There is no room for guilt. Besides, it won't change anything. Decide ahead of time what you plan to eat and then let it go.  I give thanks to my friends and loved ones, near and far and send love to all of the amazing people in my life that are no longer with us. I know they will be with us in spirit.  Blessings!!!!

Rawfully Tempting Red Slaw

This delightful slaw is quick and easy to prepare. I apologize that it's been so long since my last post, but I've been enjoying my new grandson, Leo Bronze. His mommy is an artist and wanted a color for his middle name, so bronze it is. Being Grammy to a precious newborn requires some quick prep delights. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Sunflower Seeds and Shoots...and Putting it All Together...

When you start exploring the world of Living Food, it can seem a little intimidating. It's been over 2 years now, and as I sit here with a happy tummy and a glow of accomplishment, I have to tell you some of my thoughts... and also share my meal with you. It took me about 30 minutes to put this gorgeous meal together. Yes, some things were prepared in advance, and when you learn how and when to do this, it makes the joy of preparing a successful raw living meal, immeasurable. All of the steps that I've learned up until now are coming together, like musical notes for each instrument in a symphony. The gratification I'm feeling is immense. How can I put these feelings into words and accurately convey to you, just how fulfilling and worthwhile this can be?  The commitment to invest a bit of  your time and energy, and learn about living food is required. I like to play... and I love to experiment, in fact, to me they are one and the same. I never imagined I'd be where I am now...chopping greens out of my garden, photographing them, and then writing about it. Have a few moments to spare? I'd love to show you what I prepared for dinner tonight...

Sprouting - Lentils, Garbanzos and Mung Beans - Oh My!


Beans, beans, beans. We've got lentils, garbanzo beans and mung beans  and it's time to do some sprouting. There are many health benefits to eating sprouts and I've read that sprouting increases enzymes up to 600%. I don't know that's true, but I do know they feel good and my body tells me what's good and what's not. It says, "Sprouts are GOOD!!!"

Creamy Green Garlic 'N Dill Dressing

Tonight I made this HUGE salad for dinner and was in the mood for something creamy with a dill flavor. I came up with this very yummy garlic and dill dressing with a hint of horseradish. You can add more dill and more horseradish per your preference. Makes a great veggie dip or massage into a wilted kale salad. Add more cashews if you want to thicken it. Here's the basic recipe...

Creamy Red Pepper and Garlic Salad Dressing

Now that I'm eating huge salads every day with lots of roots and wilted kale, I'm playing around with creamier dressings to compliment the heavier salads. I had lots of leftover zucchini from the BBQ chips I made, so I tossed it in the blender and came up with this very light dressing. Leave out the avocado, and you've got a fat-free dressing.

Salad - Getting Back to My ROOTS!!!

While I LOVE preparing gourmet treats for friends and family, and creating new and exciting recipes for this blog, in my every day life, I stick pretty close to my ROOTS...and this month, I can say that literally. My holistic physician, has me slowing down on smoothies and juices, and focusing more on C H E W I N G. What perfect timing! My garden is growing and what I am not growing, other friends are, and sharing. Dr. E wants me eating LOTS of R O O T S., so here they are...

Creamy Orange Sesame Salad Dressing

A creamy, but very light salad dressing with a cooling citrus base. It also makes a wonderful veggie dip. This was the very first salad I made with the lettuce we are growing at the community garden. I'm so loving the garden. We lost our cucumbers - not sure why, but everything else is looking pretty fabulous so far!

Creamy Blackberry Salad Dressing

When you are craving a salad dressing that is a little more full-bodied, rich and creamy, this is an awesome  option. This batch came out pretty thick, almost like a yogurt consistency. Feel free to thin with additional water, or use less cashews. Top your salad with fresh blackberries, grapes, sunflower seeds, etc.

Wedding Bells and First Harvest

On June 24th, my daughter, Lindsey, (my baby) filled my heart with joy and walked down the aisle to marry her sweetheart, Pete. What a stunning bride!From the ceremony to reception, everything was perfect. Congrats to the bride and groom!... Next, with all of the wedding plans, we missed a few days at the community garden. As a result, our lettuce grew a little beyond harvesting. We pulled it all out and I created one of the freshest, most delicious salads I've ever eaten. Will post recipe next!

Asian Arame/Seaweed Salad

Arame is a species of seaweed or kelp that has a mild, semi-sweet flavor. Arame comes in a dried form and due to it's mild flavor, can be reconstituted and added to dishes without impacting the flavor. Just one serving of arame provides over 100 percent of the daily value for iodine and 50 percent of the daily requirements for calcium. Arame has been reported to improve overall immune function, and condition of hair skin and nails. Due to it's high content of lignans it has been the focus of several anti-cancer studies.

UPDATE - I now replace arame with ATLANTIC COAST SEA VEGGIES, DULSE or KELP FLAKES.
