Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Lemon
When the weather turns hot, we naturally gravitate towards lighter meals. Raw soups are a perfect solution – quick, satisfying, and nutritious. Use the whole squash for this soup, since its seeds are quite soft, and the peel contains many nutrients you cells will appreciate.

Summer berries are here, and so is Independence Day! You won’t feel guilty bringing this type of cake to the 4th of July potluck: it’s raw, sugar-free and abundant in berries.
Tired of traditional salads? This recipe puts a whole new spin on the salad theme. The idea for this festive layered salad comes from Russian cuisine.
Traditional Russian salad recipes often include herring, boiled potatoes and mayonnaise. But this healthy variation is chock full of raw goodness. Instead of cooking vegetables, use them in their raw state. Let mushrooms be the substitute for herring and have the avocados stand in for potatoes—more tastily, too! No mayo, either—instead, a nut-based dressing.
A decided improvement in taste and nutrition. A real novelty, too. Your party guests will never have seen or tasted this one! Guaranteed to impress.
Add a splash of color with vegetables to this cool creamy soup, and you’ll be surprised to find that your mood will brighten up as well.
