It's Karolina's epic nut free hemp sandwich cookies with chocolate chip mint ice cream! All raw, all vegan.
Alkalinize and mineralize! It's the name of the game. You can do both with this recipe for a zesty raw kale salad by Tess Masters.

We love taking part in Marlie Centawer's Smoothie Sundays! This particular creation can be made high raw with cooked pureed pumpkin OR do like we do and keep the pumpkin puree raw by simply blending up the flesh of sweet pie pumpkin in your blender until smooth. Hemp mylk makes a great base for this smoothie with its thick creamy texture, earthy flavor, and high nutrient content. Fresh banana and a few soaked dates help to thicken and sweeten things up and the spices add that spicy pumpkin pie flavor we all love this time of year.
Have your cake...and eat it to! One of the reasons we love raw food so much?

A beautiful display of raw culinary creativity by Karolina Eleonora of Love Raw.
Easy, simple, and delish! We love the crunchy, juicy texture of this salad and the fact that it has a nice dose of protein in it from hemp seeds. And of course you can never go wrong with a tahini dressing, at least in our book!

I really used to LOVE Rolos and one day I was in my kitchen thinking, why not start making alternative versions of my childhood favourites? Then the idea for Rawlos was born (see what I did there!) These have just the right combination of gorgeous meltingly ‘milk’ chocolate with an incredible sticky caramel inside... you won’t believe it’s sugar and dairy free! They are a treat for sure - maybe have one or two (or three) after a very big, green smoothie!
Now for this recipe. It.is.so.yummmmm! I’ve posted several recipes using Frank’s Finest spice blends, because they are perfect. I don’t have to guess or play scientist to get the flavor just right. The spice blends are perfect just as they are, which is why this granola was quite the hit. It’s the perfect fall treat!
Inspired by the classic kale & avocado salad, this dish was a hit in NY when I made it, almost on a daily basis, for everyone at The Plant.
Chipotle peppers are jalapeno that have been smoked, and so are not raw. However, I love to use them as they have such a great taste and you don’t need to use many! I have provided an alternative combination of ingredients in the recipe as a substitute to using jalapenos that will give a similarly distinctive taste.
This is a real hearty meal with a kick that’s perfect for those cold winter days!
A quick whirl in the blender and Voila! A wonderful chilled or slightly warm soup is served.

Laura Dawn says, "Boost your energy levels, help clear up your skin and alkalize your body…these are just some of the health benefits of eating mangoes!" This recipe also includes plenty of hemp seeds for their creamy texture and wonderful abundance of complete protein and omega 3 fatty acids.

Brandi says, "This has been one of my favorite salads of the summer! It's amazing and perfect for the late summer and early fall when peppers are inexpensive and plentiful!" If collards aren't your thing try kale in this recipe too, both will be totally delicious!
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."
Finely shredded parsnip rice combines with the fresh flavor of basil and green peas in this lovely and light yet filling dinner entree by Gena Hemshaw. She has kept the amount of oil to a minimum, only using 1 tbs to lightly drizzle over the salad, and the dressing is simply a spritz of fresh lemon juice. Hemp seeds add a wonderful nutty flavor and tons of health promoting essential fats and amino acids as well as a host of many wonderful minerals. Delicately seasoned with a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, this is the perfect accompaniment to a light dinner tonight!
A simply classic chia seed porridge recipe created at the hands of the uber talented Jason Wrobel. Once your fresh hemp milk is made all that's left to do is pour milk over the chia seeds, add the other ingredients and let soak until the chia seeds swell and the recipe forms that perfect porridge consistency. If you're looking for breakfast ideas that really pack a nutritional punch this chia porridge is an excellent idea. The omega 3 fatty acid content and complete amino acid profile of chia, as well as their high fiber content, makes them incredibly nourishing and satisfying. This recipe also contains a generous serving of antioxidants with a handful each of goji berries, blueberries, and cacao nibs as well as superfood maca for hormone regulation. Breakfast doesn't get much better than this!
