Easy Raw Meals
One question I get asked a lot is whether you can lose weight simply by eating raw food. The answer is yes...and no. To maintain a trim physique, you need to watch how much food and calories you eat whether you’re on just about any safe weight-loss program there is...including one based on raw food.
But when you’re enjoying raw food, but you don’t have to watch quite as carefully because raw food tends to be naturally lower in calories than processed foods.

Some folks like to read a book to get their information, while others prefer to watch a video. Personally, I like both approaches, and that’s one reason that I post recipes on my site and then demonstrate them in videos on my YouTube channel.
Topping the charts on my Lunch and Dinner playlist is Mediterranean Kale. It’s one of many recipes that I’ve created that focuses on the flavors of international cuisine...and a personal favorite, too. You’ll find the recipe, along with two unique variations, in Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People.
I just learned that the March 8-12 was National School Breakfast Week. So in belated recognition of this important health initiative and in celebration of the most important meal of the day, this month’s blogs are going to be devoted to breakfast...raw food-style.
Have you had a chance to watch my video Raw Food Breakfast – Raw Granola with Almond Milk? In it, I demonstrate how to make a recipe that will give your teeth something to do along with your taste buds when you wake up in the morning.

Hello again. As I promised in my last post, I’ve got a versatile raw food recipe to tell you about...and show you, too. You can visit my Youtube channel to watch a demonstration of how to prepare my simple Raw Ranch Dressing.
What makes this raw ranch dressing such a dream-come-true is that it’s got a creamy texture, but does not use dairy products, and that means no unhealthy cholesterol and no lactose that can cause digestive problems for some folks. There’s no oil either. It gets its velvety texture and rich creamy consistency from soaked cashews.
I am a year-round soup fan. I enjoy hearty soups like my Curried Cream of Carrot Soup, with warm flavors that take the chill off a winter’s night. But I also love the flavors of lighter, spring and summer soups that are cool and refreshing like the soup I want to tell you about today: my Garden Vegetable Soup.
It’s a raw food soup I think you’ll love.
