Let your veggies marinate in the sauce for a tender consistency similar to a stir fry. Enjoy!

You may be thinking, "broccoli and banana?!" Yes we know its an unlikely pair, however, this smoothie works out very nicely. The sweet creaminess of frozen bananas helps to smooth over any overly green flavor of broccoli. The spinach and spirulina are hardly even detectable, however they do contribute to the creaminess of texture. Maca and lucuma add a subtle maltiness that is quite delicious. The result is a thick, creamy smoothie packed to the brim with green nutrition! Top with bee pollen for an immune system boost as well as extra protein and B vitamins.
Kelp noodles and veggies galore drenched in a spicy Asian inspired almond ginger sauce. 100% raw and health promoting!

A refreshing and creative pasta dish made with grated Jerusalem artichokes and a light, flavorful green sauce of invigorating herbs, greens, and a splash of cold pressed olive oil. If you are bored by the typical pasta marinara give this recipe a try for a little variation! Jerusalem artichokes are also known as earth apples, and they can be found with the root vegetables on the produce display. They are crunchy, slightly sweet, and have a delightfully nutty flavor. High in magnesium, potassium, iron, and a healthy fiber called inulin that acts as a prebiotic, these little root vegetables are full of health benefits!
Sarahfae says, "If you're looking to add a salad to your entertaining menu this Summer but you don't want to go with the typical "tossed leafy greens" I recommend giving this one a try. Ribbon peeling veggies is simple, visually stunning and a wonderful way to reintroduce a salad course to friends and family." In this gorgeous salad recipe the creamy garlic herbed yogurt sauce is the perfect accompaniment to the juicy, light ribbons of fresh vegetables. Try using the dressing as a yummy tip too!

The Young and Raw say, "Pizza night is on with this recipe!" Raw pizza is always delicious but can often take some patience and a few more steps than one has time for. This recipe is actually very easy, and if you get the crust going in the dehydrator the night before, will take you about 10 minutes to prepare. Play around with your toppings. Here are some recommendations: black botija olives, fresh baby spinach, sprouts, cherry tomatoes (preferably garden fresh), hemp seeds, pine nuts or crushed macadamia nuts and thinly sliced onion and mushroom.
When the weather starts to warm up nothing hits the spot for dinner like a fresh zucchini pasta with basil pine nut pesto.

Young & Raw get together to give us this helpful tip : "When you’re making smoothies, the possibilities for ingredients are endless. I guess that’s one of the reasons why I love them so much, and also why I always recommend them to new comers to the Young and Raw lifestyle. Smoothies don’t take much time, usually a few minutes tops of washing and chopping, and the Vitamix blends your concoction in less than 30 seconds. They’re a viable option for anyone who wants to get happy, fit and full but also doesn’t have a lot of time. Caleb and I stood in front of the fridge staring for a minute or two before we decided on these ingredients and he whipped up the smoothie while I hopped in the shower. We’re always working from home so we have to remind each other to take breaks, eat, shower, got for walks, you know all that stuff. Here’s the recipe, enjoy!"

Talk about fresh taste—it just doesn’t get greener than this! With raw food, you can get creative with wrapping and rolling using big green collard leaves and your filling of choice. This wrap is full of flavor with a fresh herb and pumpkin seed pâté and marinated veggies. Ditch the tortillas, grab some collards, and have some raw food fun in the kitchen!
The freshness of the cilantro and lime with a little kick of jalapeño makes for a very flavorful dip. Pair it with crudités or raw flax crackers for a satisfying snack or light meal.
Packed with spinach and much lower in fat than most pestos, this is great over zucchini/kelp noodles, salad, crackers, or veggie sticks.
