About Me

I started this blog to keep track of my kitchen creations. I love cooking and eating. In 2008 I was diagnosed with RA. Food started becoming a huge problem. I needed to find a better way to eat the flavors I love. All the recipes I create are driven by my desire to eat good food that won't create extra pain and inflammation in my internal ecosystem. While the recipes are wholesome, the language is not. I swear. I use the word 'fuck'. A lot! I make no apologies for that. It's just a fair warning. I'm raw and real. Happy cooking! Even happier eating! Cheers! Angie

This soup is a great summer dish but it's even better because it doesn't get cooked!  If you have a Vitamix with the soup setting, you can throw everything in there and put it on the soup setting and not worry.  If not, you can warm it slightly before you eat it however if you warm it too much, you'll lose the nutrients of the raw veg.

3 cups of water
3 whole, large, ripe tomatoes
1 large cucumber
1 red bell pepper
1/2 of a sweet onion (mayan or spanish preferably)
1/3 cup of red wine vinegar
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
black pepper & sea salt to taste


1 cup of almond or hemp milk
2 bananas
1/4 cup of cacao nibs
1/4 cup of walnuts
1 heaping tablespoon of maca powder
the green tops of one beet

Blend everything really good in the blender.  Once it's all blended, add ice cubes one at a time to slush it up.

SALAD BOWL Fresh Juice

This recipe makes enough for 2 pints of juice. 

1 apple
1/2 head of romaine
1 large cucumber
2 stalks of celery
1-2 carrots
3 radishes (optional)
2 wheatgrass cubes (if you split the juice, put one wheatgrass cube in each glass)

Juice everything one item at a time.  You can drink it all at once or split it half.  Make sure to keep it in the fridge.

2 apples
1 pear
1 whole beet, greens included

BLOOD LUST Fresh Juice

1 blood orange
1 pear
1 apple
1 red plum
1 lime
1/4 to 1/2 cup of blackberries

Use a carrot peeler to get the zest off of the blood orange. Keep the white pith on. You don't have to peel the apple or pear. If you have a juicer that has a chute big enough for the whole fruit, just juice everything one by one except the berries. Process the berries in the blender with the juice.
