Raw Dip Recipes

Trying to get kids to eat anything can be a real uphill battle.  And when the word ‘healthy’ is attached, the work gets twice as hard.  But I’ve found a way to turn kids on to eating healthy fresh fruits and fresh vegetables.  The trick is to let them prepare their own raw food recipes. 

In my original cookbook Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 and my follow-up dessert cookbook Raw for Dessert, there are tons of recipes that even the youngest child can be enjoying making and eating.  Without no danger from boiling water, stovetop burners, or a hot oven to content with, welcoming kids into the kitchen is stress-free and fun.

I wanted to share another of the ever-growing list of reasons I love raw food.  I’ve discovered that in addition to being perfect for a meticulously planned dinner party, raw food recipes make it possible for me to be an ‘Instant Hostess.’  With a well-stocked pantry and a little advance preparation, I’m always ready for a last minute get-together with friends or family.

The raw food recipes in my books Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People and Raw for Dessert are filled with wonderful dishes you can prepare any time.  But I think you’ll find they’re especially useful at holiday time when people are likely to drop in at a moment’s notice.

New Year’s Eve is a wonderful night of nostalgia, hope and celebration.  And while many people attend parties to ring out the old year and ring in the new, others (like me) enjoy spending a quiet New Year’s Eve at home.  

The biggest challenge of being a homebody on New Year’s Eve is figuring out what to eat.  I don’t want to get weighted down by a heavy meal or snacks; my goal is to keep my appetite satisfied so I can be wide awake to watch the ball drop.  (I’m normally an early riser, so counting down to midnight can be tough.)

That’s why I like to spend New Year’s Eve feasting on raw food appetizers.  I can prepare a variety of recipes early in the evening and nibble on them throughout the night.  And since the food is natural and unprocessed, I don’t have to worry about it making me feel sluggish and sleepy.
