I was recently interviewed by the very cool Chic Vegan and I thought y’all would like to check it out. I’ve done a number of interviews over the years, but I enjoyed this one particularly so because of the questions. It was fun. :)
PS Don’t forget!!! My new book, Raw Awakening, is going to be released on June 6 and if you pre-order before June 6 I’m giving away a free copy of my ebook Easy Raw Vegan Transitions!
We recently went on a great road trip to California. It was so much fun. You see, Kamea has never been a fan of the car so we waited until we thought she’d handle it better at almost two years old – she’s 21 months during this trip. How did she do? Well, let me just give a round of applause to LeapFrog DVDs in the car – lol (and would you believe that she knew some of her letters after just one viewing?!We were looking at books after she watched it the first time – which was a couple of months ago – and she pointed to and said the sounds for “O” and “R” and it wasn’t long before she knew them all!). Anyway… they kept her happy in the car for the drive. But, to make the trip enjoyable, we only drove in small chunks and stopped quite a bit. Our goal was Santa Barbara because it’d been on my Bucket List for a long time. However, just north of Santa Barbara we have friends with an organic olive farm so we visited them, too.
So, without further ado, here is part one of our trip in photos.
I’m so happy, excited, and proud to say that my next book, Raw Awakening, published through Chronicle Books, is officially available for pre-order. Right now.
Whoo hoo!!!! Can I just do a little jig right now? Will you do it with me? Shake it here… shake it there… duck, turn, boing boing, jump, shimmy shake… Whew! That was fun. :) Thanks for sharing in my joy with me. I’m really really really happy about this book.
So…. on to some exciting news for you. While my new book, Raw Awakening, is available for pre-order, I’m offering a FREE copy of my Easy Raw Vegan Transitions EBOOK to anyone who purchases a copy of Raw Awakening during the pre-order phase. Simply email me a copy of your amazon receipt and I’ll reply with a copy of my Easy Raw Vegan Transitions ebook.
“Raw” food is energizing people around the world. Eating raw no longer means consuming carrot sticks and boring fruit plates-it’s a whole new cuisine and lifestyle. Featuring the same fun and passionate style that has made hers one of the most popular raw food blogs, chef Kristen Suzanne takes readers step by step through the raw food lifestyle: equipping the kitchen, grocery shopping, eating out, dealing with setbacks (and family members!), improving digestion, and losing weight, until eating raw becomes second nature. Plus, the book features 50 fabulous recipes-no cooking required!-for treats like sprouted protein bars, lasagna, soups, brownies, and even cheesecake! Accessible, fun, and packed with information not available anywhere else, this volume is a must-have for anyone who truly cares about health and nutrition.
Now that I can find ORGANIC young thai coconut meat and water in the freezer department of Whole Foods, I’m a yogurt makin’ fool. I can’t imagine my refrigerator without it. Sooooo good. How can I describe it? Hmmm… ummmm… perfect creamy sublime deliciousness. How does that sound? It’s lightly sweet from the coconut, thick, decadent, very nourishing. Total comfort food. Do I have your interest yet?
Ingredients for raw vegan yogurt minus probiotics that I add (vanilla drops optional)
Use on raw granola or any cereal of choice, whether raw or not.
Add to coffee and tea.
The down side to keeping a ready-to-use stash of raw nut milk is that it generally means a routine of soaking, blending, and the dreaded straining in order to make it. Not anymore though! Here is a great way to make raw nut milks that is easy and fast. No straining! So… guess what that means? No excuses!
I’ve really gotten into the video mood, can you tell? Are you enjoying them? Are they useful? I hope so!
In this video I decide to totally wing it and make a dressing I’ve never made, while doing it on camera. My plan was to post the video no matter what because I figured 1) we’d all learn something anyway (I learn a lot from failed recipes) and 2) it’d be kind of funny if the dressing sucked seeing as I was doing it on camera. I still don’t have the ingredients written down so I can’t add them here to the post yet, but I remember… water, oranges, grape tomatoes, garlic, salt, raw almond butter, basil??? I think those are the ingredients. When I find time, I’ll come back and add the ingredient list.
Spoiler alert...Turns out, it was so good! Easy to throw together as you’ll see… and mega fresh. I loved it on fresh lettuce and I also gobbled it up on cauliflower. If a dressing makes you enjoy raw cauliflower, then you know it’s darn good.
Enjoy the show! (By the way, as you know by now I’m still in a video making mode – I suspect I will be for a long time – so check out my popular Cinnamon Brownies post I wrote a while back because I put up a video showing you how easy they are to make here!)
I'm Kristen, and welcome to my blog. I'm a wife, mom, author, and I love to eat so food is usually the topic of my blog posts. I'm a former (almost decade long) vegan turned back omnivore who enjoys reading, rebounding, coffee, and dark chocolate. More...
