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!

This is a real hearty meal with a kick that’s perfect for those cold winter days!

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."

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.

A lively broccoli hemp slaw from Gena Hemshaw with a hefty dose of omega fatty acids from hemp seeds and sasha inchi oil! The dressing is an easy and delectable sweet mustard vinaigrette containing apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, Braggs or tamari, a spoonful of stoneground mustard and dash of curry. If sasha inchi oil is unavailable to you try hemp seed, flax, avocado, olive, or a combination for a wide array of essential fatty acids. Using a food processor to break down the broccoli and cauliflower into smaller pieces is a great trick and makes eating these healthy and hearty vegetables so enjoyable!

Chef Rawloulou shares about her decadent dessert recipe, "This is Loulou's version of Raw Model's Key Lime Pie, I had no limes, so I used Lemon and I wanted to veer away from using nuts for a pie base so I ended up using my 'sweet crunch' (see below) instead to give texture."
Who doesn't crave a crunchy and delightfully sweet bowl of granola once in a while for breakfast? This is the perfect basic granola recipe, with the added unexpected flare of coriander spice.
