This was good! From Yardsnacker tonight......

Why is life like that? Why is it, when things are broken down, not just leaves, but hearts, hopes, and souls, they are actually at their greatest potential for growth? I do not know the answer, I only know that our hearts must break every now and again, even with those we love, in order to make way for the beautiful blossoms of a new growing season, our own internal Spring.

Smells Fishy

It is SO amazing how many people think that fish is/are ? NOT meat. We went out last night for my birthday and I asked the waiter if there were any vegetarian choices on the menu? He said well, we have lots of fish....... (me, rolling my eyes) seriously???!?!? ALL meat is RED meat! oh, well, I had a nice conglomerate of sides and literally rolled out of the place. So, it's ALL good! we made the famous onion bread tonight. LUV that stuff! it's back in or on? a routine, so back to sandwiches! the stuff makes the house smell so warm and cozy! happy Autumn!!

I learned.....

At our Raw Food Class with mollie, i learned:
drinking green tea or carrot juice MAY help you not burn so much in the sun, but if you eat healthy and not "fatty" you may not burn so much either! hummmmm.........

we cant absorb the vitamins from the good foods we eat if we aren't CLEAN first!!!

Thank you Sandy for the PERFECT frosting recipe for those Cinnamon rolls!!! from
Juice of 3 oranges
2 Tbsp. agave
2 handfuls of mac. nuts!

pretty good! cin. rolls!

Got this recipe from "Gone Raw" was decent...think the icing needs to be sweeter tho...
1¼ cups almond meal
1¼ cups ground flaxseed
1 dash cayenne pepper
1½ tablespoons cinnamon
1 pinch sea salt
1 cup soft pitted dates
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
⅛ cup olive oil
⅛ cup agave nectar
¼ cup raisins, plus a little extra
¼ cup chopped nuts
Combine the almond meal, ground flaxseed, dash of cayenne pepper, 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon and pinch sea salt in a bowl and set aside.
In a food processor or blender, process dates, water and vanilla into a paste. Remove half of the date paste and add it to the dry ingredients, along with the olive oil and agave. Mix these ingredients with your hands until it forms a dough. You may need to add a little water and/or agave if it is too dry, but be careful not to add too much.
Spread the dough out on a piece of parchment paper, and flatten/shape it into a 1/4-inch thick square.
Add 1/4 cup raisins and 1 Tbsp. of cinnamon to the rest of the date paste left in your food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Then, spread a thin layer of the paste onto the dough square, making sure to cover the whole surface, and top with a sprinkle of extra raisins and the chopped walnuts.
Using the parchment paper to help hold everything together, carefully/tightly roll the square into a log. Chill in the refrigerator, and then slice into about 1-inch thick rounds. I usually make about 8 cinnamon rolls out of this recipe.
These cinnamon rolls can be eaten right out of the refrigerator or warmed on a dehydrator. I top mine with a generous icing of raw almond butter mixed with agave, vanilla and sea salt (or if I have more time, I make a cashew and coconut whipped cream icing

Makes 2 cups.
2 cups raw cashews, soaked
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons dates, soaked
1 tablespoon coconut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or half a vanilla bean)
¼ teaspoon salt
Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and process until creamy

The Raw Goddess is QUEEN!!!

Yum!!! I tried her almond cho. bar today and OH MY!! it was LUSIOUS!! she is supposed to be having a dessert "cook"book coming out soon...wish it would hurry up! here's her recipe
1/2 cup melted coconut butter
1/2 cup cacao or carob powder (I used 3 part cacao/1 part carob)
(my note: first time i tried all carob and the family liked it better than using all cacao. note to self to do as the Raw Goddess did: 3 part cacao/1 part carob!)
1 tbs maple syrup
1 tbs
agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Blend until smooth in high speed blender or food processor.
( I used hand blender because vitamix seperated it)
Transfer to a bowl, then add by hand:
A few drops pure almond extract
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup almonds,
(if you store in frig or freezer like me, bring to room temp. first. If you dump them right in, it will cause the coconut better to "set up".) chopped Spread mixture on plate or pan lined with parchment paper and set in the fridge or freezer. You can score the chocolate with a cookie or pizza cutter after a few minutes or break into pieces once fully set.

2 cups walnuts, soaked 8 to 12 hours
* 1 cup cashews*

2 1/4 cups water
* 1 cup pure maple syrup
* 1/4 teaspoon maple extract
* pinch solar-dried sea salt
* 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, soaked for 8 to 12 hours, then dehydrated (optional)
1. Drain and rinse the walnuts.
2. Put the soaked walnuts, cashews, and all remaining ingredients, except the chopped walnuts, into a blender and blend until completely smooth and creamy. The mixture should resemble the consistency of a thick milkshake.
3. Pour the walnut cream into ice cube trays (I used muffin cups) and freeze until hard.
4. Put cubes through a Green Life or Champion Juicer outfitted with the homogenizing plate.(didn't do this step either as I don't have it)
5. Stir in the chopped walnuts and return to the freezer for a couple of hours. Serve immediately or store in the freezer until ready to use. Keeps in the freezer, in a sealed container, for 1 to 2 months.
