3 C raw cashews soaked in water 20 mins and rinsed.
Juice of 3-4 lemons
10 drops stevia
1/2 C coconut water. I use the leftover from a full fat can of coconut water. Refrigerate overnight so the cream rises to the top. Drizzle the water slowly into the blending lemon cream to achieve the desired consistency. Save the coconut cream in fridge for the whipped topping.
Spread evenly over crust and refrigerate or freeze to set.
Thaw before serving and top with coconut whipped cream.
Coconut whipped cream

2 tsp dijon mustard
salt and pepper
2-3 Tbs cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, drizzle into blender until sauce flows freely and liquefies
In the video I am using the ingredients that I have on hand. I could have used Roma tomatoes and Italian herbs. the sauce was thinner with the juicier tomatoes but still amazingly delicious. I used cilantro and cumin. You can also use basil, thyme, oregano.
1 yellow squash
Spiralize and squeeze out excess water with paper towels.
2 garlic cloves
handful of fresh herbs
Tbs dried herbs
full fat coconut milk (chill overnight, use just the thick cream on top)
salt and pepper to taste

Pour sauce on the noodles and add fresh veggies and olives. I used 1/2 a red bell pepper and green olives from Trader Joes without vinegar or oil.
My first attempt @ shooting and editing a 2 camera video (of myself no less). I can’t believe I forgot to take the curlers out of my hair, oops. The food was gone (after I ate it) so I couldn’t re-shoot. Next time I’ll look in the mirror first.
Also I need better lighting and sound. All in all I’m pretty pleased with the shooting and editing for my first try.
As you begin your journey into detox and weight-loss you will notice your tastes becoming simpler. You will begin to revel in each luscious bite of a strawberry or a crisp refreshing salad.
As I’ve said, I don’t have a lot of time to fuss over meals, which is perfect for detox anyway. Simplicity in your dishes and your menus is best for digestion and elimination. It also means freedom from the kitchen, fast foods and spending money on things that make you sick.
I began one day this week with a lovely green juice of spinach, kale, parsley, apple and lemon while sitting on the beach before work.
On my way to work I sipped this lovely “Goddess of Greens” while I grabbed a bit of fresh ocean air (yes I know I’m lucky)
At work I had one of my usual delicious salads with lemon.
At home after work my dinner was equally luscious and easy, a salad with corn, bell, pepper tomato, olives and lemon with a little taco seasoning for a little added zing.
After this refreshing salad I had an eggplant that I halved, scored, topped with butter ( yes! butter), taco seasoning and baked for an hour at 375 while enjoying my salad and a glass of wine. Scrape the cooked eggplant out of the skin and squeeze a little lemon juice. Yum.
As I have said before, cooked oils should be eventually eliminated from your diet. All oils except for coconut oil change their molecular structure at high heat and become rancid. Therefore they are indigestible and toxic to the system. Butter on the other hand, does not change with high heat and is completely digestible and recognized as food by the body. Of course it is not one of our desirable plant-based fats so should only be enjoyed occasionally and in small quantities.
There is no doubt the raw food movement is immeasurably better than the standard american diet and that it can claim many achievements. I don’t believe though that the average person can detox their body and cleanse their cells just by going raw. First you have to eliminate the rubbish impacted in your tissues before the ultimate vibrating foods can really do what they were meant to do in our bodies. Fruit, especially, may be the queen bee but in a clogged acidic system it can do more harm than good. That being said a diet high in raw if used systematicly with cooked foods and even a few animal products, eaten alternately and in conjunction with systematic under-eating to quote Ehret, is the key to abundant health. The many raw food dishes out there can have their place in a cleansing lifestyle,
There are so many delicious dishes from the raw food movement. Many of them are way too dense and rich, full of nuts, oils and way too many ingredients. Occasionally as a treat though they can be fine. I try to find or create lighter versions of the typical raw food fare to include in my diet as a change, a treat or if I’m entertaining.
This dish is an example . it contains no oils but it does call for a cup of pine nuts, it is my understanding that the smaller the nut or seed the easier it is to digest therefore better for our purpose here, ie to lose weight and boost vitality.
