Renaissance of Health: Breakfast of Champions
Our little sprout farm is up and running again! After a summer of instinctively not wanting hardly anything but fruits, my body began to seriously crave the minerals and protein in greens, seaweeds, and sprouts.

Morning Health: Beautiful Morning Juice
This delicious, power-packed green juice helps us start the day with the best kind of energy, and fuels our activities for hours. Freshly made juice and raw foods, coupled with daily exercise, makes a winning combination.

Raw Inspiration!: Morning Ambrosia Berry Smoothie
Delight in this utterly scrumptious smoothie that’s loaded with powerful antioxidants from health-boosting strawberries, marionberries, cherries, and raspberries. Simply throw everything together with some bananas into the blender, and in sixty seconds you’ll have a mouth-watering, fat-free, delicious, energizing meal or snack.

Cleansing: Pear and Persimmon Breakfast
This is a simple, refreshing breakfast, taking minutes to prepare. The taste is delicious, and the colors are beautiful. There's something satisfying too about the combined textures of the juicy, melt in your mouth pears with the firmer persimmons.

Leverage: Grape, Nectarine, and Plum Smoothie
Fall is already here and it seems all too soon after another unusually short summer in northwestern Washington. Yet, there are still some delectable fruits in the stores, such as grapes, nectarines, and plums, to name a few.

Soulful Food: Fresh Fruit Salad
Here are some simple salad recipes using ingredients that are normally available, seasonally, throughout the year. These salads are refreshing, delicious, purifying, and make a delightful breakfast, simple meal, or late-night snack.

Dreaming of Summer: Luscious Smoothies
We are drawn to foods that are the colors of the rainbow. Smoothies, infused with fruits or greens, a little almond milk or fresh pure water, simply burst with flavors and tastes. Their colors - emerald, rosy pink, golden yellow - are like rays of prismatic light, and bring the colors of sunlight into our lives, any time, any day.

Seeds For Life!: Strawberry Pudding
What a gift - real, organic, sweet, gorgeous strawberries, not pumped up on chemicals, or laden with pesticides! These berries have made up for being strawberry deprived!

The Gift of Time: Saturday Morning Breakfast
This particular morning, we wanted something warm and comforting for breakfast. With intuition guiding us along, the idea soon camea warmed carob drink, with a plate of sliced bananas and avocados, whose flavors mingle in an unexpected and uniquely delicious way.

Transformational Living: Power Smoothies, Oh My!
We have two favorite smoothies: one that's nourishing, easy to digest, and loaded with EFA's, amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and protein. The second drink we've dubbed "body food", because it's a pure protein power kick that keeps us going strong for hours and helps us move through our day with energy, mental clarity, and grace. It's not as flavorful, but wow!

Making Kefir: Strawberry Lassi
Kefir grains originate from the Caucasus mountains, and have been used for thousands of years to make a tasty, health-giving drink. Mixed with nut milk, we've added strawberries, banana and apple—a touch of agave and cinnamon really bring out the strawberry flavor!

Pure Joy: Strawberries and Fruit Soup
Here's a refreshing and simple recipe that will start the day on a high note - strawberries! The berries are perfect as they are, cut into bite size pieces, or eaten whole. We enjoy eating them this way, or sprinkled on top of a sensuously delicious and surprisingly filling fruit soup - which is perfect for breakfast, a light meal, snack, or dessert.

Moving too Fast: Raspberries and Cream
We picked raspberries this week, plump and glowing, from the garden of our friends, Ellie and Eric. After gobbling up a great many, we couldn't resist making a rich banana cashew cream to have with these succulent fruits for our breakfast the next day.

Raw Food Then and Now: Pears with Nectarine Sauce
Bartlett pears are back in season, and nectarines are still to be enjoyed. We teamed these two juicy fruits together, putting a little spin on the presentation by making a luscious sauce from the nectarines that was spooned on top of the pears.

Cravings: Nectarine-Peach Pudding
Peaches and nectarines are some of summer's great pleasures, and we've been blessed to have a wonderful crop this year. This luscious pudding can be frozen for 2+ hours, so that an icy crust forms on the top for a real cool down on blistering hot days. Or, enjoy the pudding at room temperature for a delicious, tangy-sweet snack or dessert, made in minutes.

Keeping the Juices Flowing: Sundried Fruit
Here's a simple breakfast that's so easy to prepare we know you'll love it: soaked sundried fruits, with a burnished, sungold, inner glow, and delicate sweet flavor! We made a jarful of these luscious treats earlier this week to have on hand for yummy breakfasts.

Breakfast of Champions: Hi Protein Sesame Yoghurt with Fruit
This breakfast brings a wonderful, vital, life giving energy. Creamy, cultured, calcium-rich, hi-protein sesame yoghurt (1 ounce of sesame seeds contains 6.5 grams protein), is easy to make, and has a natural smoky flavor that's inherent in the seeds. When served with delectable soaked dried apricots and golden raisins, which complement the flavor, it makes for or a satisfying and filling way to start the day.

Vitamix vs Juicers: Sprouted Buckwheat Porridge
When the days turn chilly, a bowl of hearty, high energy, buckwheat porridge with almond milk will keep us going for hours. This is a total "living food" breakfast

True Value: Crunchy Raw Granola
Sprouted buckwheat is combined with a date sauce, and various nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and then dehydrated. The result is a breakfast treat that's as good or better than any of the best granolas on the market.

A Grateful Harvest!: Blueberry Pudding
Berries are shown here, rinsed and drying in large cloth-lined bowls before being placed into containers to freeze. When the cold winds blow, we'll remember with gratitude the beauty of summer that produced such fruits.

Food Allergies: Amazing Berry Sauce with Bananas
We're crazy about this new breakfast: berry puree over bananas, with a touch of creamy almond milk, and some of our buckwheat granola. The berries are a welcome gift in the middle of winter, filled with mouth watering, sun-colored flavor.

Less is More: Berry Cherry Pudding
These fruit puddings are so incredibly easy to make, and taste amazingly delicious. Simply blend the blueberries, and add in whole fruits for glorious color and texture. Serve for breakfast, a snack, a cooling summer meal, or as a dazzling, sugar-free, ever so natural dessert.

Adjusting to Changes: Applesauce-Blueberry Crumble
Applesauce-Blueberry Crumble is a delightfully delicious, rich and filling, sugar-free, guilt-free, wholesome dessert to serve your family, or bring to festive events. Fresh apples are made into a chunky applesauce with Black Mission figs, then covered with a thick layer of blueberry sauce, with a final topping of crunchy date-nut crumble.

Kitchen Yoga: Everyday Applesauce
Thoughts of apples with cinnamon drifted into my awareness. Ah... some fresh and wholesome applesauce, so simple and such a lovely treat. I gathered the apples, dates, lemon, cinnamon, and cashews, and put them out on the counter by the food processor and got the utensils—the knife, cutting board, and pretty bowls to put the finished applesauce in.

Warming Food: Apple Crumble and Persimmon Sauce
Nuts, apples, spices, and persimmons make for a delightful meal or dessert. Warmed in the dehydrator for an hour, it’s much like apple pie, fresh from the oven!
