Veggie Kebabs in Pineapple Spice Marinade

Kebabs are a fun way to eat vegetables for both kids and kids-at-heart. You can customize the vegetable selection based on your family’s preferences and seasonal availability.

Raw Tacos with Cashew Cream

When we prepare raw food dishes from other cultures, it is usually the specific spices and herbs that help us achieve the flavors associated with each country’s traditional cuisine. Mexican dishes emphasize cilantro, cumin, lime, chili and jalapeno peppers, all of which are included in these tacos.

Spicy Collard Greens Vegetable “Sushi”

Dark leafy greens are a very important piece of a well-balanced raw food diet due to their un-paralleled nutritional profile. This appetizer offers a pleasant way to consume them.
