Raw Tacos!

Raw tacos!
I used Swiss chard leaves and purple cabbage as the ‘tortilla’ shell.

For the ‘meat’ I threw walnuts, cumin, cayenne, garlic, sea salt, olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, red bell pepper, and grape tomatoes.  Topped with tomatoes, diced chayote,  fresh guacamole and corn.

Raw Chocolate Chip cookies!

I was experimenting with ingredients and ended up making a raw chocolate chip cookie that tastes pretty close to the real thing. I’m assuming you could dehydrate to make it taste even more cookie like, but I ate it right away…tastes just like cookie dough!

Ingredients:
-Handful of Pecans
-about 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
-1-2 Tablespoons Coconut milk
-Liquid Stevia
-Vanilla extract
-Pumpkin Spice
-Himalayan Sea Salt
-Raw Cacao Nibs

In a food processor, combine pecans, coconut flakes, Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt and Pumpkin Spice (to taste).

Once its ground up, add the coconut milk and the liquid stevia, process.
It should be the consistency of cookie batter…nice and thick. Stir in however many cacao nibs you’d like, pat into a round cookie shape….dehydrate, or enjoy right away!

I washed it down with a cup of Almond Mylk…yum.

Vegan-rican photos!

Here are some photos from my amazing trip in Las Marias, Puerto Rico. We stayed at Maravilla guest house, located in the mountains of the rainforest. All meals were lovingly created by Margo, the host of the bed and breakfast.
