Holiday Sweet Potato Pie

Holiday Sweet Potato Pie

This is a completely sugar-free pie using only liquid stevia and all natural sugar alcohols lakanto, erythritol or xylitol.

Butternut Squash Ravioli Stacks

Butternut Squash Ravioli Stacks

At first I thought, “ravioli!” Which was then immediately followed by, “boring!” So instead, I went for a mix between lasagna and ravioli – A ravioli stack. Easy, but elegant. What more could a girl want!?

Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Hazelnut Pesto with Fresh Tomatoes

Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Hazelnut Pesto with Fresh Tomatoes

I love the rich hazelnuts pesto mixed with thinly sliced brussels sprouts, and it is quite filling. Shredding the raw brussel sprouts makes them palatable.

I pretty much love any version of a cole slaw. This one combines a rainbow of fresh veggies to nourish all of your chakras. The mayo has a mild heat to suit a sensitive palate like mine, so feel free to add more chipotle for those who like a real kick!

Raw Blackberry Cobbler

Raw Blackberry Cobbler

The nice thing about this recipe is that you can modify it a number of ways.  I’ve made a similar recipe before using peaches for the filling instead of blackberries.  You can also use mangoes, or any combination of berries.  And for the crumble, you can substitute pecans for walnuts.

Pizza Italiano

Pizza Italiano

If you can believe it, this is my very first time making raw pizza!  Crazy, I know!  I suppose I never really cared for trying to recreate American fast-food (pizza, burgers, etc).  But I must admit, this recipe turned out amazing!
