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 blood orange
1 red plum
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.
1 cup of almond or hemp milk
2 cored apples with the skin on
1/2 an avacado
1/4 cup walnuts
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 big handful of fresh baby spinach
2-4 tablespoons of raw honey or agave nectar
Blend all ingredients well. Add ice cubes one at a time.
