Health Trip:
I can’t believe
this is raw food!

Raw food diet recipes: cupcakes, brownies and cookies

If Survivor contestants read about these recipes before moving to the island, the show would have been sweeter and less problematic. There is a world of super tasty raw desserts to satisfy our sweet tooth needs without ruining our diet plans.

Raw desserts are my new recipe-hunt discovery, probably the best thing that happened in my kitchen since I discovered quinoa. Let me tell you why: raw desserts are healthy, tasty, and free from all the sugar, flour, butter and cream of traditional recipes, but with a taste that will make you scream to the top of your voice: “I can’t &%$£! believe this is healthy (and raw)!”

Strawberry Pie

How does the magic work? Where does the dough comes from? From nuts, well soaking nuts is the key for raw baking as it works as a replacement for wheat flour. They add a lot of flavor, and variety with different nuts paired with different ingredients.

So first step: fill your kitchen with nuts (cashews, almonds and walnuts) seeds (hemp, chia and pumpkin) and what will be the substitute for sugar; dried fruit (specially dates, raisins and prunes). Coconut oil and cacao powder are also very important ingredients in many of these no-cooking recipes. Remember no-oven needed means less mess and less clean up. A raw kitchen is a clean kitchen.
