Raw food Friday! A power greens salad with almond pate, fennel salad, red cabbage walnut raisin, traditional coleslaw with rainbow peppers, fennel salad, Mediterranean style cucumber salad and sprouted bean salad.  Can we say WOW! What a way to start the weekend.  Karyn’s Fresh Corner Chicago rocks! Like I always say, if you’ve never had Karyn’s you have no idea what RAW eating really is. No lie!

Vegan Nut Clusters

IMG_3658

Get some vegan chocolate, melt.  Put some nuts in a bowl, stir, spoon out little clusters onto parchment paper.

I used organic raw pecans, organic roasted unsalted cashews, and organic raw walnuts.  I did them all separately, cuz I didn’t want to mix my nuts, lol!

It doesn’t take much chocolate at all… Cool in the fridge and eat.  So good!

P.S. Real chocolate should melt in your mouth AND your hand.  Who wants to eat wax anyway?

 

Have fun with your delicious vegan treat making 🙂 Victoria

Healthy Vegan Peanut Butter Cups Experiment

IMG_3659

So, I decided to make my own vegan peanut butter cups.  Being a health conscious vegan, it greatly appealed to me to make a treat without extra oil, additives, and sugars.

I basically melted some vegan/non GMO (Enjoy Life brand) chocolate chips in a double boiler with a splash of my chosen extract (like vanilla, mint or almond).  With a small ladle spooned the melted chocolate into muffin/cupcake papers (actually used a muffin tin to hold the papers.  Let the chocolate cool. Then spooned some room temp sugar free/salt fee/stabilizer free organic peanut butter and covered with another small spoon of chocolate.  Not to pretty to look at, but I was happy to eat them without the added confectioners sugar and extra fattening ‘other’ stuff, often put into peanut butter cups.

Tastes SO good, and good for you too 🙂  Also was half the price of ‘store’ bought ones, and I had enough extra melted chocolate to make nut clusters (see next post).

Have fun with your delicious vegan treat making 🙂 Victoria

Quick Vegan Wrap

IMG_3634

 

Quick vegan wrap, Coleslaw and romaine.  I like to use the ‘red’ cabbage for coleslaw because it gives some much needed ‘vitamin purple’.  If you try to eat from the color spectrum, this is a good way to get some ‘color’ into your diet.

For a sauce try Vegan  Chipotle mayo, or a lighter option just some lemon squirts.  Natural organic lemon also aids in the digestion.

Wraps are actually pretty easy to make from scratch, but they are also available pre-made in many stores.
