This recipe makes the ultimate quick on the fly raw meal. Throw a fresh green salad onto your plate to accompany this noodle dish and you will be very happy and satisfied! Kelp noodles have a texture that can be a bit odd if you don't prepare them properly. If your kelp noodles are crunchy this is a good indication that they haven't soaked long enough in your sauce. You can also speed up the process a bit by pre-soaking them in an acid like lemon juice or vinegar, which will soften them right now! This recipe really has that spicy Thai flavor and the kelp noodles are the perfect raw substitute for white rice noodles.

Traditionally Nanaimo bars are an unapologetically sweet and decadent treat hailing from Canada. If you make the original version you would use a layer of graham cracker crumbs, a layer of light custard buttercream, and a smooth glossy layer of chocolate to tie everything together. Well, thanks to Nicole Axworthy we can leave those processed and less than ideal ingredients on the store shelves and instead pick up some raw cacao powder, cacao and coconut butter, dates, raw nuts, fresh mint leaf and extract, avocado, and raw agave nectar to make a version that will rival traditional Nanaimo bars in both decadent deliciousness and charming visual presentation!
One dilema that people often run into with traditional raw food cuisine is that many recipes relay on nuts to create texture and bulk. This can make certain foods harder to digest for some and substantially higher in fat. Sprouted buckwheat makes a great replacement for nuts in things like snack bars and granola, giving them a lighter quality, and bringing to the table valuable enzymes, life force and macronutrients such as protein and phytonutrients such as rutin. Many mistake buckwheat for a grain but in actuality it is a seed and is very easy and fast to sprout. Nicole Axworthy says the following about her delicious little sprouted buckwheat bites- "With these mini bites of energy on hand, you’ll have no problem keeping up with family and friends during summer weekends full of activites like cycling, running and gardening."
