#WaybackWednesday to when #spiralised veggies (daikon radishes & carrots πŸ₯•) from my local #organic farmer were king, so I celebrated them by making a #spicy #rawvegan #Thai style sauce with unhulled sesame seeds & #raw domestically grown sunflower 🌻 seeds. Also from the same #familyfarm , fresh cabbage, romaine, and jalapeΓ±o peppers (notice the colours in the one I sliced into this dish?! 😻) 🌢 πŸ”₯ 🌢 πŸ”₯ 🌢 πŸ”₯ #vegan #veganic #glutenfree #Worldpeacediet #rawvegansofig #vegansofig #nutfree #plantbased #gourmetraw #rawchef #RawVeganista

As if by some #rawveganChristmas miracle, a magical mushroom pizza post finally appeared on my account after many months of utter silence... πŸ„ πŸ„ πŸ„

This is just a quick note to wish everyone a beautifully peaceable #veganholiday season, and post this pic of a meal inspired by dear friends @calicrystalchillincannabis & @celestially_veganic! This #gourmetraw pizza is the end result of the process I recently shared via "stories", and is comprised of a #dehydrated #sprouted buckwheat & flax crust, my signature #raw marinara, macadamia "cream cheese", #organic tomato slices, a blend of #gourmet and #medicinal #mushrooms , pumpkinseed/macadamia pesto (#sattvic version adapted from the #rawrecipe found on the blog at #RawVeganista dot com), topped with some of that fabulous smoke tea #Macadamiana cheese I had posted in stories, fresh basil, and a tiny drizzle of white truffle oil. It's rather a small pie, but one little slice was so filling that I'm probably going to be full for the rest of the year! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚
πŸ• ⌚️ In any case, my current plan is to return to posting somewhat regularly again once life has settled and I've landed somewhere solid enough to properly set up kitchen and studio to function together once again. πŸ₯˜ πŸŽ₯ πŸ“š 😊
Much love and best wishes for a joyous remainder of the holiday season! πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’–βœ¨πŸ’«

How do you #repurpose YOUR leftovers? πŸ‘€
Last night's #rawvegan #culinary collaboration between @heartyveganfood and myself yielded some superb leftovers for today.
We made some bomb #raw chili last night at @parkvine in #Cincinnati , along with a killer #kale salad (aka #kaleslaw ) just for fun.
My #leftover treatment for what we packed away was to amp it up with all of the stuff I was unable to incorporate last night: #cauliflower "rice", fresh #organic #lambhass avocado from @ricksproduce, #homemade #livefermented habanero & passionfruit hot sauce, and #farmdirect cilantro from @carriage_house_farm.
If you guys want to see the pics from the original feast before #repurposing , please be sure to head on over to Chef Zef's @heartyveganfood IG account and let him know! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’–βœ¨

While I realise that #FlashbackFriday is long gone at this point, I thought I might share an image of one of the last #rawvegan #livingfood #deepdish #chicagostyle pizzas I made not so long ago. This one was round, and the crust was also made from the same blend of #homemade #organic #raw/ #sprouted , #glutenfree flours. It featured my signature raw marinara sauce, #Macadamiana #livefermented #nutcheese , fresh #farmdirect heirloom tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach.
#GourmetRaw #plantbased #cuisine is a great way for those in a transitional stage toward a more #mindful , healthful & #compassionate #vegan and/or #livefood lifestyle. Even the most hardcore junk food addicts seem to go for this #vegan pizza, and I regularly receive bookings and requests to make it for various events. I grew up loving pizza like a bff, so I totally understand and have worked diligently over the years to perfect every version I have ever #madewithlove . ❀️️ πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’–βœ¨

For those of you who may have been following my "stories" posts from last night, here's a bit more from the progression on my #rawveganpizza project.

My method for making this particular #glutenfree #veganpizza crust is very similar to procedures used for a baked version, but placed in a @tribestlife Sedona Classic food dehydrator at very low temperature instead of baking in an oven.

This #gourmetraw black truffle rosemary buckwheat crust is intended for someone in a transitional stage, aiming toward better health as a longer-term goal.
This is not low in fat by any stretch of the imagination, and texture of the finished product should closely resemble a higher-fat Chicago style "#buttercrust " pizza. It is simply homemade flours (#madewithkitchenaid from sprouted buckwheat, dehydrated and then finely ground), #organic & #raw/unrefined oils, #farmdirect & #homegrown herbs, and a bit of mineral sea salt.
I'm juice cleansing at the moment (season change=fasting/juicing/fine-tuning of the immune system), and then perhaps I'll work on one of my regular lower fat #rawvegan pizzas to enjoy afterward. Not sure where things will take me from this point forward, as I'm currently attempting to phase out my (too) longstanding adherence to fruitarianism in favour of something a bit closer to Dr. Cousens' "rainbow green" #rawlifestyle regimen. We shall see how that goes, and in the meantime I'm still accepting a few more clients & #ahimsa #culinary #rawfood workshop engagements in the #Cincinnati area before heading south for the winter.
Once home again, I hope to get back to "normal" with the #RawVeganista blog, #veganfoodshare posts, related social sharing, and also resume work on my upcoming book + iOS apps (lost my computer on this long journey, so will most likely be starting again from scratch). Until then, keeping the vibration high and sending much love & gratitude to all of my fellow #vegansofIG !

Mushroom, walnut, & fresh #Italian herb #RAWvioli with a special little salad featuring fresh #organic figs, #heirloomtomatoes , #microgreens & mushrooms happened tonight on the #rawvegan #Mondaymenu .
Normally I would use thinly sliced jicama for the "pasta" wrappers, but today I was lazy & used @thepurewraps miniatures instead. The texture is spot on for pasta (especially under sauce) and one might never guess that these were actually #rawfood ! πŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ #rawveganfoodporn #veganfoodshare #rawveganista #vegandiy #thefeedfeedvegan #rawvegansofig #vegansofig #feedfeedvegan #plantbased #rawallday #worldpeacediet #veganhealthcoach #ahimsa

Final day of #WorldPeace workshops! One of the #plantbased #culinary projects I opted to create for my wonderful classmates/co-collaborators/friends/#spiritual #vegan family (the other was #raw cinnamon vanilla ice cream): #rawegan sunflower seed very dill ranch salad dressing. This weekend has been absolutely amazing, and I'm so grateful for this opportunity to share and co-create with so many like-minded spirit souls.
Namaste & much #gratitude πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’žπŸ’–βœ¨

What better way to pay tribute to a #hothotsummer than with some #hot #hotpeppers? πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ Posting has been rather sparse of late, as life's been a bit overwhelming over the past several weeks, with lots happening in the way of new lifeline developments... Some of these include incredible unexpected #blessings in form of family comforts (#abundant #gratitude & much LOVE LOVE LOVE to you all! πŸ’œ), a recent #healing challenge to be addressed, and so many changes on the horizon!
Life can be such a mad rollercoaster at times, with so many ups and downs... 🎒 Needless to say, I have not been able to find enough downtime (or headspace) to capture and share much in the way of #foodphotography via Instagram. However, I wanted to be sure to pop in and say hello just in time for #MexicanMonday (or even #tacotuesday ) with a shot of some wonderful #seasonal abundance.
As you can see, I've been blessed once again by #localfarmers who were kind enough provide me with one of my absolute favourite comfort foods of all time: #ChocolateHabanero #peppers !
#Habanero (of Havana) = very #spicy #Cuban variety with a #citrusy , #Caribbean-esque flavour and intense creeping heat.
The Chocolate habanero has a slightly more complex flavour profile than its more commonly found/easily recognised orange lantern cousin, and is one of my absolute favourite ingredients of all time.

Until just recently I had not been able to find these in ages, and had previously sourced them exclusively from growers who sell at the Union Square market in NYC. Yesterday, the amazing Alan "the mushroom guy" (as my mum calls him) of @ProbascoFarm in #Cincinnati managed to snag some on my behalf from another #pesticidefree grower in the area by the name of "Can Du Farm" (with whom I was fortunate enough to connect on a previous occasion). In any case, these are fabulously delicious, and #gratitude is all I can feel despite many obstacles and challenges of being far from home & immersed in such a #longstrangetrip . These peppers are truly one of the finest highlights of #Summer for me! I love the #heat , and the robust flavour cannot be beat.
#Habaneros in #spicyvegan #rawfood #alldayeveryday ! 😁

Thanks to the amazing @priscilla_momah (& @wakethefarmup) sharing this photo! Tonight I'm tabling & mixing up herbal #organic & #veganic #teatails with @LolasBotanicals for a benefit to #protectourwater at the #20thCentury in #Cincinnati . Teatails, a collaborative effort between my own @RawVeganista project & #LolasBotanicals , are cocktails made with herbal infusions, teas, & #botanical tinctures blended with fresh #raw , #unpasteurised juices, coconut milk, and natural sweeteners. If you happen to be in the area, please stop by for the next hour or so (we're here until 2AM) and enJOY some of our creative blends! πŸ΅πŸΈπŸΉπŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’žπŸ’–βœ¨

Please pardon the dodgy #iPhoneography , but I'm simply too excited about my latest delivery of @thepurewraps to take time to do a proper #foodphotography setup. These mini #rawvegan coconut "tortillas" are too adorable! 😍

Over on #Snapchat right now (as πŸ‘» RawVeganista), I'm making mini pizza roll thingums (& a multilayer #rawlasagna for my mum) using all kinds of gorgeous #seasonal farm direct loveliness, including GIANT basil, little tomatoes, #homemade #Macadamiana (my own brand of cultured macadamia "cheese") ricotta & marinara, topped with pineapple & red pepper flakes.
These awesome little minis are an absolute must-try for anyone into #raw , #vegan #fingerfood & snacks on-the-go!
Please be sure to check out @LORAXCommunity's #VeganDIY #livingfood workshops this Summer with awesome local farmers (such as @lolasbotanicals, @wakethefarmup, & others to be announced) for resources, ideas, and hands-on tasting experiences with creating easy, #economical , and #FUN ideas using #farmdirect , #wildcrafted , & #homegrown #plantpowered goodness.
