The real heart of a ranch salad is, after all, the ranch dressing. Here we have a raw vegan alternative to one of the most popular salad dressings around. With an avocado base, this is a creamy ranch salad. So take heed! if you’re the type who prefers a thinner, lighter dressing, just add more almond milk til you arrive at your own personal perfect.
Tart, sweet, crisp. Apples and cranberry is already a killer combination. But add some celery, ginger, lemon and a bit of lettuce? Oh my. Who knew detox could be so delicious?
But as the title suggests there’s more to this ambrosial beverage than sensory delight. The apples will help regulate your blood sugar. Celery is anti-inflammatory and contains lovely vitamin K. In addition to vitamin K, romaine lettuce also brings K while lemon brings the C. And of course our good friend ginger aids in the digestion, as well as being a powerful anti-inflammatory.

Turmeric is a fantastic spice. It’s actually a close relative of ginger, which also shows up in this smoothie. Like ginger, turmeric is a wonderful anti-inflammatory food that has been valued for its healing properties since time immemorial. And mango — well, what needs to be said about this lovely squishy fruit? There’s hardly a fruit in the world more suited for smoothie magic.
A little bit of coconut flakes add a little bit more of that special yumminess only coconut can bring. Another smoothie for the hall of fame. And that bit of ginger with the mango — manifique!
This sweet potato salad is something of a cross between a salad and a main course. Crunchy raw sweet potato noodles with delicious currants and a hint of cinnamon — it almost sounds like it could be a dessert, too!
This dish employs such a delightful combination of flavors, it really is completely unique. The curry sauce has a touch of apple cider vinegar for some tasty probiotic zip, as well as the salty rich flavor of tamari (which is, by the way, an awesome way to enjoy the taste of soy sauce without the gluten).
The spiralizer might be one of the most amazing and under-appreciated kitchen tools there is. Being able to turn fresh raw veggies into noodles is almost miraculous, and yet it’s kind of a rare tool. If you don’t have one, you can make this recipe using a cheese grater. If you can find one, a spiralizer is a great tool for all sorts of raw noodle dishes.
Thai food is awesome. Crisp, fresh, with a little bit of tang and sweetness, and always so colorful! With this refreshing take on an old favorite, you get all the characteristic taste of a great pad thai, all with wholesome raw ingredients!
The kelp noodles are probably the most intriguing aspect of this pad thai. Kelp is an awesome food, packing a broad spectrum of micronutrients like sodium, potassium and iodine which helps keep your thyroid in good order. It also contains all 9 essential amino acids, and all this in a low-calorie package.
Add to the kelp some tamari, tahini, ginger and miso, and you’re in for an exotic tasting treat. There is a fair amount of ingredients in here, but it’s all awesome stuff and it really isn’t too much work to get it all together. And the gorgeous medley of colors and flavors that you’ll be rewarded with makes the time spent chopping more than worth it. Kelp Noodle Pad Thai is a fantastic dish when you’re looking for a taste a little out of the ordinary!
