rawveganista August is my favourite month, so this #SimpleSunday has been all about #gratitude & reflective introspection. Summer has kept me quite busy, working on various projects, creating & developing new ideas in beautiful kitchens which have been such a privilege for me to work! So much to share with all of you, soon to come on the blog at RawVeganista.com will be amazing announcements and loads of new discoveries... Will begin by simply posting this image to say THANK YOU for so much positivity and ongoing inspiration since I first launched this account. Although I may not be online so often, I am truly grateful for all of your kindness and feel that connecting with so many of you has been enormously instrumental throughout my ongoing process of #healing & readjusting to life.
I would also like to offer special mention to @ricksproduce, my wonderful friend & favourite farmer who literally saved my life by providing me with #FoodAsMedicine for the past 3 years. His mad #organic growing skills have enabled me to re-establish my physical strength AND #veganic #gardening abilities, whilst also allowing me to share colourful #rawveganfoodporn like this über simple #fruishi I created using only fresh fruit & herbs.
Thanks also to my NY neighbours at @organicsuperfood for replenishing my stock of young Thai coconut at a fabulous Summer discount (without which the wrapper for this #fruitsushi would not have been possible), & the #nutsforcoconuts ladies (@wholesomedaily, @whole_food_nutrition, @gmofreegirl, & @templetreetea) for keepjng me on my toes with their ongoing #nutsforcoconutschallenge.
Thanks for a great Summer, everyone! ^_^

rawveganista How is it Friday already?! Heading off to a clients' place for a weekend of #glutenfree #rawveganpizza & other fun #organic #rawvegan creations in their gorgeous sunny kitchen.

This dose of #Fridayfoodporn is actually my dinner from last night, which was a bit of a pre-event warm-up/test formulation--I often make extras of things prepared in my own kitchen, just to get a feel for what to expect from each new batch of ingredients. It does matter, as food prep chemistry is often variable!
The "cheese" is simply thinly sliced slabs of young Thai coconut, marinated in freshly squeezed lemon juice & a pinch of salt. I'm #nutsforcoconut because of it's amazingly delicious versatility, which makes sharing in the #nutsforcoconutschallenge a pleasure of which I never seem to grow tired.
Props to the coconut crew (@gmofreegirl, @whole_food_nutrition, @wholesomedaily, & @templetreetea) for keeping the #coconutlove alive, and wishing all of you a blissful weekend, filled with delicious adventures & healthy blessings. =) #vegan #rawfood #veganfoodshare #veganfoodporn #foodphotography #veganDIY #rawsomedaily #bestofvegan #rawchef #veganfoodphotography #rawveganchef #RawVeganista #veganic #vegansofig #crueltyfree #veganforlife

rawveganista #TBT to a few days ago, when I devoured this #RawVegan #MexiCali #TacoTuesday feast & then spaced out before finding a chance to post the pic. ;-) The gorgeous avocados you see in the background are the über delicious Reed variety (my Summer favourite, in season for a VERY SHORT TIME), and the "lemons" are not actually lemons at all! My friend @ricksproduce totally faked me out by sending these along with my avo shipment without so much as a word to indicate that something new and exciting was headed my way... Sweet limes!
Did anyone else NOT know of their existence? They're so weird! Not like a lemon or a lime, but only mildly citrus-esque and rather sweet with a hint of... I have no idea how to explain them! I juiced a couple to use in salad with #Mexican squash (another exciting new treat from my friend Rick's farm), avocado, chilis, and cilantro (pictured in the small bowl at left)...it was divine, and like nothing I had ever tasted. Sort of reminded me of the first time I ever tried cilantro or epazote: very different from anything familiar to me, but something I quickly found highly enjoyable to work with. =) This tostada was rolled into a burrito shortly after the photo was taken, just after receiving a healthy insertion of avocado, #homemade sauerkraut, & #spicy #raw #vegan "nacho cheese" (for which the recipe is now LIVE on the blog at www.RawVeganista.com as of this afternoon). Bon appetit!

rawveganista Yes, I've been away & it's been some time since my last post. A lot has been happening! I actually had some recipes queued to post on the blog during my absence, but something went awry & it didn't happen until today. However, the timing was actually perfect since today's theme for #veganrecipehour was #Indianfood! As such, I shared a special DOUBLE RECIPE for #Raw #Vegan Korma + #Spicy Aubergine Curry on the blog at www.RawVeganista.com in recognition of that theme & also #ThrowbackThursday (since I actually prepared these dishes several weeks ago). Shown here with one of my #rawvegan pancake experiments inspired by @uhmblabla's über tempting #PancakeMonday shenanigans... Links to her own amazing work & #glutenfreevegan recipes may also be found on my post from today's blog! ^_^

rawveganista #RedWhiteAndBlue #rawvegan #fruitporn from #vegan4thOfJuly:
Coconut/lemon sorbet, sweetened w/barhi dates, & topped w/#organic #seasonal berries. Speaking of coconut, I would also like to send an enormous wave of #GRATITUDE to @whole_food_nutrition (along with the prolifically creative 'Coconut Crew' - @gmofreegirl, @wholesomedaily, & @templetreetea) for having shared my raw/vegan pizza post featuring hempseed & coconut "mozzarella cheese" as an honourable mention in the #nutsforcoconutchallenge.
I truly am #nutsforcoconuts & incredibly thrilled to greet fellow coconut aficionados who found their way to my page via that post. Welcome!
If you love this post, please check comments below for a basic rundown of how it was created.
#IndependenceDay weekend also fell the midst of Ramadan, & to quote my incredibly talented Instapal @Veganista_Q8: DATES are a MUST during this holy month of fasting. As such, I thought it only fitting to share this post in joyful appreciation of her brilliantly fun #datecomp IG event.

#Farmdirect, organically grown dates are my preferred natural method for sweetening the vast majority of sweet treats featured on my profile and blog at www.RawVeganista.com.
I have been buying LOADS of Barhi & Medjool dates in bulk directly from an amazing #familyfarm in Coachella since 2011, who are kind enough to ship directly to me since I decided to leave California. In fact, whenever dates are mentioned on my blog, a hyperlink is provided for you to find exactly the same fresh, incredibly delicious, 100% unprocessed dates I'm using in my very own recipes! ♡Ⓥ★

  •   veganista_q8 Very patriotic it looks so cool and refreshing... ️. Would love to have this after coming in from the heat. It's been 122 degrees here thanks for this beautiful entry @rawveganista 3mon
  •   deliciouslycleanvegan Yum!!! Sounds and looks amazing! 3mon
  •   wholesomedaily Delicious 3mon
  •   rawveganista @veganista_q8 122ºF is CRAZY! It's only been in the 90s here, which is actually quite awesome for me since I don't really get hot all that easily (huzzah for water therapy & 100% raw foods) even though I eat the hottest peppers around every chance I get...
    I'm pleased that I could share *something* topical with you, as I've not really been feeling so creative with dates in the evening. By the time iftar rolls around, I've either been losing my mind or just want to eat them quickly in monomeal form so that I can move on to something else before it gets any later! I actually have LOADS of much better items shared in earlier posts (some of them blogged recipes), but have really not felt terribly inclined to do a whole lot in the kitchen with all that's been going. Perhaps I could simply revisit or repost at some point? I shall also keep a close watch on your account (as per usual), as your posts always inspire & brighten up my feed. ️ Thank you so much for all of your kindness & lovely visual inspiration!
    I hope that your Ramadan is going nicely, filled with much peace and many blessings. ♡Ⓥ★ 3mon
  •   veganista_q8 Thank you for your inspiration! I've been scrolling down your account and loving it If it were only me, I'd be ok with soup and salad, but my husband and 16 yr old son are also fasting and they want REAL food for ifthar though not much gets eaten, mostly soup and the finger foods. The heat isn't so bad as I'm not in it that often. We don't too much outdoors during this time. I love this month, everything about it and I love spending it here. There's something whimsical about it. You really feel the spirit of it all around you. Peace and Blessings to you as well hope your father is doing better@rawveganista 3mon

rawveganista I should really be juicing at night (especially throughout this month), but holiday socialising & an overabundance of #farmdirect #organic produce proved too great a temptation for me to resist over the past few days.
During the week I experimented with transforming various #organic fruits, vegetables, & freshly ground seeds to make #glutenfree #rawvegan flatbreads, which were devoured over the weekend in form of previously pictured mega tostadas & also massively filling #raw & #vegan #7layerburrito goodness.
These were filled with #oilfree "refried" beans (I used a combination of the sunflower recipe from www.RawVeganista.com + FRESH, raw, seasoned, & pureed blackeyed peas), avocado, romaine, "nacho cheese" sauce, #homemade sauerkraut, pineapple/habanero salsa, & #hempseed "sour cream" to garnish. Seriously filling, and far too heavy for me to consume as an evening meal (post sundown). Crazy weekend juggling of fasting & feasting has sort of thrown my system for a loop... Definitely need to shift things into neutral after Wednesday's H2O reset/fast!
Until then, I shall do my best to provide some high quality #rawveganfoodporn (including more #veganJuly4th images) for your enjoyment! ;-) #rawfood #veganfoodporn #veganfoodshare #veganfoodphotography #foodphotography #NikonD3200 #nofilter #vegansofig #rawvegansofig #chefsofinstagram #rawveganchef #RawVeganista #veganDIY #instavegan #bestofvegan #veganforlife

  •   veganomalous Looks really good, but where is your American patriotism? ;p 3mon
  •   rawveganista Thank you so much for your sweet comments! @veganista_q8 @thedariag ♡Ⓥ★ 3mon
  •   rawveganista Cheers for your comment, @athomecooking! Everything on my page is always free of gluten, wheat, and all animal products/by-products (such as eggs, honey/bee pollen, & dairy). Everything that happens in my kitchen is relative to season, so formulas such as the one used here are often subject to change slightly in accordance with whatever is available to me at any given time. That said, there will be an assortment of different bread recipes included in the upcoming book which is still in progress (release date TBA), most likely indexed according to season. ♡Ⓥ★ 3mon

rawveganista This #raw, #vegan, & #organic piña colada ice cream cake w/ California figs & #glutenfree gingered buckwheat crust just happened, and it was absolutely incredible (& I'm not just saying that because I fasted all day)! I'm all about pineapples at the moment, and totally #nutsforcoconuts (as always), and the weather being a very humid 96 degrees Fahrenheit made today seem an ideal time for frozen cakes... So I made one! This was an absolutely divine improv, but will definitely happen again before committing to a final formula for publication.
The ingredients in this were fairly simple, and consisted mainly of very ripe pineapple, dates, a hint of cilantro (seriously, it's delish & SO FRESH tasting), and coconut butter. The crust was comprised of sprouted buckwheat, dates, and a hint of vanilla. Easy-peasy for #SimpleSunday, and another incredibly satisfying submission for the coconut crew(@gmofreegirl, @sylviasuperfoodista, @whole_food_nutrition, @wholesomedaily, & @templetreetea)'s ongoing #nutsforcoconutschallenge. =) ♡Ⓥ★ #rawvegan #rawfood #veganfoodshare #rawveganchef #RawVeganista #veganfoodporn #VeganDIY #rawsomedaily #rawveganfoodporn #veganRamadan #fruitarian #oilfree #crueltyfree #veganfoodphotography #foodphotography #rawfoodphotography #veganblogger #NikonD3200 #eatclean #chefsofinstagram #bestofvegan #veganforlife

rawveganista Happy #VeganPizzaDay!

Yes, I am indeed one of those strange folk who LOVES pineapple on my pizza... ;-) This #rawvegan triple-mushroom, tomato & pepper pizza pie from last night was #glutenfree, #nutfree, #oilfree, and loaded with all kinds of fabulousness hidden beneath its most visible layer of #hempseed/coconut "mozzarella" cheese. I consider it cheese because it *is* actually fermented, made from a blend of #organic hempseed & #raw coconut-- because I'm #nutsforcoconuts & thought it might be fun to submit a savoury posts for the #nutsforcoconutschallenge from the coconut crew (@gmofreegirl @sylviasuperfoodista @wholesomedaily @whole_food_nutrition & @templetreetea). There may be another #rawveganpizza post later, as I'm actually prepping a few more crusts to enjoy for another time... possibly even tonight for #iftar (though I'm actually more thirsty than anything--ALL I can think about are dates & H2O)!

  •   rawveganista @wholesomedaily thanks you so much! Most of the posts I've seen have been sweet, so I thought I'd mix things up a bit. ;-) 3mon
  •   rawveganista Oh how nice! Thank you for letting me know, @rawmissoulamomma. I still haven't found anything (not even a notification this time)... Perhaps it's not working since I use an old version of Instagram? I don't own a phone & use a first generation wifi iPad for everything, so have not been able to update IG to support some of the "new features" (of which I really know very little). I'm quite keen to know more, so really hoping that we are able to find a solution! ^_^ ♡Ⓥ★ 3mon

rawveganista #FlashbackFriday seems like an ideal time for #rawveganfoodporn from last year's #VeganPizzaDay, so here's a very naughty, gratuitous shot of a serious #glutenfree #rawveganpizza pie smothered in #Macadamiana "mozzarella", fresh sliced tomatoes, #raw, #organic, #farmdirect olives, garlic scapes, & Brasil nut "sausage" crumbles. The crust is one of my signature sprouted buckwheat blends, infused with #homegrown rosemary and #farmfresh olives.
This year I've opted to go #nutfree & #oilfree, and also celebrate a day early due to the onset of #Ramadan (which means no food or drink during daylight hours). Past couple of days have been rather intense & strange w/family members in hospital, so not quite certain I'll feel like doing much feasting tomorrow at sunset.
Will likely post tonight's pics tomorrow, after I've had a bit of time for rest, reflection, & mental preparation for the month ahead. Thank you all for your kindness, positivity, enthusiasm, and ongoing encouragement. See you soon! ♡Ⓥ★ #vegan #rawvegan #rawfood #veganfoodshare #bestveganblogs #bestofvegan #RawVeganista #veganfoodporn #rawveganchef #eatclean #veganforlife #vegansofig #rawvegansofig #VeganDIY #veganfoodphotography

rawveganista Fasting today, & feeling rather grouchy about having to edit pics for inclusion in the book project... This #Rawsagna (made w/#organic #glutenfree #8ballsquash noodles, hempseed "ricotta", mushrooms, spicy #rawvegan #oilfree marinara, #nutfree avo pesto, & fresh #homegrown basil) is quite maddening, so I thought I might share some of the joyful insanity. ;-) Ⓥ★ #vegan #rawfood #veganic #veganfoodshare #wheatfree #grainfree #crueltyfree #veganfoodshare #rawveganfoodshare #vegansofig #rawvegansofig #bestofvegan #veganfoodporn #rawveganfoodporn #veganDIY #eatclean #veganforlife #fruitarian #veganblogger #RawVeganista #veganfoodphotography #NikonD3200 3mon

rawveganista Since I'll be fasting all day on #VeganPizzaDay, I decided to make a few #rawvegan pies for #Solstice feast this past Saturday. This also fits the theme for #TacoTuesday, as it's essentially the vast majority of my usual taco ingredients rearranged into the shape of a pizza! The sauce is a smoothly blended habanero salsa, topped w/sliced tomatoes, peppers, juice pulp-derived "taco meat" (recipe variations may be found on the blog at RawVeganista.com), creamy "nacho" & hempseed "cheeses", sliced scallions, fresh cilantro, & #homemade sauerkraut. Even the crust is a variation of my #raw #organic recipe for "hard taco shells" posted on the blog several weeks ago, and the presence of buckwheat makes it an ideal final entry for me to share in @rawmissoulamomma's #buckwheat6k competition.

rawveganista Another sweet & crunchy #rawvegan treat from our #Solstice feast, these piña colada crunch bites featured sprouted/dehydrated buckwheat, along with oodles of #raw #organic coconut butter & fresh pineapple! The sweetness of the pineapple was nearly enough to eliminate the need for anything else, but I did throw a few Medjool dates into the mix just to smooth things out... Since these are completely laden with my aforementioned fruit seed of choice, I'm fairly certain that the ever-amazing Jenna (aka @rawmissoulamomma) would appreciate them as another entry for her #buckwheat6k challenge. Ⓥ★ Finally (but certainly not by afterthought), another happy birthday shutout to my dearest friend Jack--creative artistic genius and owner of the gorgeous @dandyhaberdashery shop & newly launched website at www.DandyHaberdashery.com. Love you, Darling!

rawveganista Last week's random evacuation put a bit of a glitch in my #Solstice menu planning, but these #rawvegan lemon blueberry crunch squares were quite scrumptious & ready just in time to celebrate! Largely a #seasonal improv version of old favourites, these are comprised mainly of #raw coconut butter, fresh #organic blueberries & puréed whole lemons, dried mission figs, sprouted/dehydrated buckwheat for a bit of crunch, & a ginger-infused layer of #rawvegan white chocolate to hold it all together in style (cheers to my oldest & dearest living friend Jack from @dandyhaberdashery for suggesting that I use the cacao butter as a topping) .
I'm also willing to bet that my instapal @rawmissoulamomma would love these, especially considering the fact that the past couple of weeks have been all about the #buckwheat6k challenge for her... Congrats again, girl! I may even have one or two more shares up my sleeve before the clock winds down... ;-) Ⓥ★ #vegan #rawfood #veganic #veganfoodshare #glutenfree #wheatfree #veganfoodshate #rawveganfoodshare #vegansofig #rawvegansofig #bestofvegan #veganfoodporn #rawveganfoodporn #veganDIY #eatclean #veganforlife #fruitarian #veganblogger #RawVeganista #veganfoodphotography #NikonD3200

  •   dressyoursaladinlove Yes. Just yes. 3mon
  •   rawveganista @dandyhaberdashery Yes! We will absolutely do raw Pad Thai again, and maybe some raw pizza & lasagnas too? I made those over the weekend as well, and have a feeling that the former would likely be a big hit with the little guy... Easy for little hands to hold without making too much of a mess! I've got several pics from the solstice feast, which I shall soon upload for your #rawfoodporn enjoyment. =) 3mon
  •   rawmissoulamomma Yeah. It's safe to say I love these. And if I WAS on the fence, which I wasn't, you definitely caught my attention with the whole ginger infused white chocolate bit. An awesome addition to an already awesome group of buckwheat dishes for the challenge! Way to rock the bars! :) 3mon

  •   rawveganista @rawmissoulamomma Thanks so much for the positive feedback! White chocolate alone seemed like a bit of a bore, so adding a whisper of ginger to highlight the bright tones of lemon felt like a proper way to send these off. ;-) Really pleased to participate in your celebration of this fabulous fruit seed, as I'm sure you know by this point that I'm absolutely mad for buckwheat & put it in nearly everything I make. This weekend's Solstice/charter anniversary feast was loaded with all manner of buckwheat-based treats, so I'm likely to cast a few more shouts your way before this day is through... ;-D Ⓥ★ 3mon

rawveganista Who else loves fresh #organic #blueberries & sprouted buckwheat?
This super satisfying blueberry buckwheat breakfast (w/#homemade #hempseed & coconut milk) is my ode to both, as well as being one of the first shots captured with the amazing #NikonD3200 I've been trying out.
Alliteration never tasted so good, and I am so blissed to have stocked up on enough #farmdirect #locallygrown blueberries to last me through Summer (if I'm careful to avoid overindulgence)! =) Sprouted buckwheat has long been a staple in my #livingfood kitchen activities, which I have a tendency to use for virtually everything. It's inexpensiveness & inherent versatility have made it the perfect go-to ingredient for many of my culinary & #VeganDIY workshops--from simple snacks to some of the more elaborate creations you'll find featured on the blog at (& also my upcoming book). My #Sundayveganshare for this week is also my contribution to new instapal @rawmisssoulamomma's #buckwheat6k competition, and also a very simplistic nod to the ongoing #nutsforcoconutschallenge overseen by@gmofreegirl, @whole_food_nutrition, @sylviasuperfoodista, @wholesomedaily, & @templetreetea

Much appreciated and love your good company. It looks so tasty! Perhaps I'll have to start taking my food photos with more than my iPhone. Haha. 3mon
  •   ohhhcaitlin Great goin! 3mon
  •   rawveganista @rawmissoulamomma Thank you so much for the sweet comments! I have always used cameras for all of my IG posts, but only because I haven't ever owned a phone. I suppose that's also why I've found it so difficult to properly keep up with my account... I sincerely apologise if I seem really terrible at this sometimes! I try to make up for it by posting only the best pics I can manage. =) Although likely undetectable in Instagram's subpar image renditions, my older pics (all preceding the refrigerator image) were far lesser in quality due to the fact that the camera I had been using previously (Nikon S220=broken+awaiting repair) was only 10 megapixels. It was easy to use and took some great shots, but this D3200 is a rather insane 24.2MP & takes crazy good shots of everything... I've even started a new account '@AhimsaOracle' for posting nature + artistic non-culinary photography whilst I'm still using the D3200 (which is here on trial), since I thought sharing different things with other photographers could be a good way to get better acquainted with all the camera can do (& also give me a "fresh start" on IG). Anyway, I am always very grateful for your kind words, insights, and input on my work. It is my absolute pleasure to join in and help you celebrate/promote your excellent ideas & images. ♡Ⓥ★ 3mon

rawveganista I recently learned about #Benedictine, an unusual element of #Southerncuisine originated in #Kentucky. Essentially, it consists of cream cheese folded together with cucumber to make a spread for sandwiches and such... To be perfectly honest, at first I thought it sounded quite weird (& gross). However, I had some #raw/#vegan #hempseed cream cheese left overnight the refrigerator from yesterday & was feeling pretty lazy today. Thus, I put past knowledge into action with a #rawvegan version and jazzed it up a bit by adding chopped scallion, Herbes de Provence, & a bit of chopped bell pepper. I then decided to carry on with the laziness trend by filling a few #mushrooms with the mixture, as apparently it's meant to be the star of the show and must be paired only with "blank canvas" food items. This photo is the end result of my #SimpleSaturday experiment.

These were actually rather nice, and I may actually make them again. Hooray for being lazy! ;-) ♡Ⓥ★ #veganfoodshare #foodphotography #veganfoodphotography #RawVeganista #rawfood #rawveganfoodshare #VeganDIY #bestveganblogs #bestofvegan #veganfoodporn #rawveganfoodporn #veganforlife #veganshare #rawveganchef #NikonD3200 #vegansofig #rawvegansofig #glutenfree
