Every year we hear about failed attempts at healthy holiday eating and every year, something goes terribly wrong. So, this year, don't sabotage your healthy holiday eating with a little red shrub fruit, cranberries. If your family is like mine, cranberry sauce is a staple during the holidays at the table. I mean, who doesn't love a little "sweet tart" cooked fruit to go along with all that other delicious, starchy, fatty, salty holiday food? I know I do...but every year, I make a point of making something raw to bring to the table (of course, adding raw is easy, [...]

These cabbage nori rolls are my raw food twist on the traditional sushi roll. Filled with fresh, raw veggies and a parsnip sun-dried tomato paté, then wrapped in nori and cabbage you'll want to make a few more for later. They are a great addition to any dinner party, or make a great appetizer to the rest of your "Asian" themed dinner. This recipe makes 6-8 rolls. Ideally, you'll need a vegetable peeler, a food processor, a small pot (for wilting the cabbage), a cutting board and a sharp knife. You can make them in less than 15 minutes (minus [...]

If you like to "do-it-yourself" and you like cabbage, then you'll love this DIY raw sauerkraut recipe. A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about pooping, probiotics and the importance of having a healthy gut, so instead of just talking the talk, I figured I'd take you on the walk with me. I think fermented foods are amazing and can be easily integrated into a daily meal plan. These days, probiotics come in various forms, including shelf stable probiotics, but there are also fresh probiotics including fermented milk products (yogurt, kefir, lassi) and fermented tea (kombucha), but I especially [...]
