If you haven’t tried zucchini pasta yet, now is the time! It’s basically like the pasta you probably grew up eating, except better in every possible way.
For instance, it’s gluten free, it’s raw, and it’s vegan. That means that most anyone can enjoy it. And they will enjoy it, because the texture is great and the flavor… well the flavor is what you make of it. In this zucchini pasta, the flavor is all about basil pesto with a cashew base! With a bit of nutritional yeast for some extra zing and plenty of garlic to keep away colds and vampires, this is a quick and easy meal you can whip up in just 10 minutes or so!
A salad is no salad without a great salad dressing! But you want something that is tasty and flavorful without just overwhelming your green leafies and crispy veggies.

On top of that, this home made salad dressing can be made in the time it would take you just to choose one off the shelf at the grocery store. Five minutes or so is all you need to whip up enough dressing for several salads. Store what you don’t use right away in the fridge to pull out the next time you have a hankering for some salad.

Now all that playing and activity can tire us out. We need to refuel! And what better way to grow big and strong that a heavenly delicious chocolate covered protein bar?
Ever had a protein bar that tasted like cardboard? Those days are over. Now a protein bar from a store might taste alright, but is probably filled with added sugars and other weird things.

There’s nothing like lemon tarts. That bright tangy yumminess unique to lemons makes for just about the most delicious pastries and pies you’re likely to find. Combine that with some sweet raspberry jam and some apricots and you’ll never look back.
With this lovely raw vegan variation on the lemon tart, we’ve got macadamia nuts and almonds making up the chewy crust, along with some medjool dates — the raw “bakers” secret weapon. Dates can be used to make all kinds of surprising treats, and tart or pie crust is one of the best.
These tarts require a little bit of planning ahead, since you have to thaw the raspberries and soak the nuts overnight, and there is some assembly required. But the effort is well worth the delightful zesty tarts you come out with in the end. Can you imagine a better summer picnic snack than these awesome lemon raspberry tarts??
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: zucchini noodles are out of this world. If you’ve got that friend or family member who just doesn’t get how you can be satisfied on a raw, plant based diet, then put 10 minutes aside and make them a serving of this wicked zucchini noodle curry.
Of course, if you’ve been around the raw-food block once or twice, you know all about the wonders of zucchini noodles. And that’s where the subtle brilliance of this simple recipe comes in. When you think curry, you probably think spicy. And with curry powder, chili paste, and cayenne, this zucchini noodle curry delivers.
But you probably also think creamy. Most vegan curries I’ve come across have turned to coconut milk to provide that rich texture, and there ain’t nothing wrong with that. Here we see a different approach, with cashews and avocado stepping up to the plate to thicken things out. But fear not, oh lovers of coconut, for the subtler presence of coconut water will still be bringing that tropical taste we all love.
