Every so often, I'll stumble upon a game changer smack dab in the middle of writing a post on the very subject. Today was just one of those moments as I have just completely erased this entire post, to start from scratch after making not one, but two new discoveries! A bit of background... This week's Sprouted Forbidden Rice Salad with Cranberries & Pecans incorporated an amazing and simple sprouting technique I've been excited to share with you for some time. Sprouting or "blooming" rice is a simple and fascinating way to achieve a beautifully soft, fluffy textured rice without ever having to turn on the hot stove! It's a super cool process wherein ...

Fresh Corn Chowder with a Kick is a celebration of summer in a bowl! This simple and delicious recipe takes full advantage of local farmers' markets, currently overflowing with the plumpest, juiciest ears of succulent corn. Golden jewels so honey-sweet and tender they're best fresh off the cob... *PS. Do you spot my napkin (below) on which a vintage letter from Mark Twain is printed? More on this in my personal comments after the recipe below :) Continue reading

Fresh homemade Almond Milk: the creamiest, freshest milk you've ever had. Originally, I began this post with all the amazing benefits of drinking homemade Nut Milks. However, since I absolutely adore making them for how fabulous they taste - let's lead with flavor! We're talking creamy, richness like you won't believe. And, while the subtle, sweet, mellow flavor of nut milk alone is very satisfying, there is a whole range of sweeteners from dates, honey,... Continue reading

Eating a wide variety of different foods is crucial to a healthy foodstyle to ensure we're getting all the nutrients we require and to guard against overdosing on any one particular nutrient as well - as the saying goes "the medicine is in the dose". One of the ways I add variety to my diet (ok, really I just do this cause I think it's fun) is by shopping at the various specialty markets in our area. I know, I know, eating local has all sorts of great wisdom behind it, so do that too. However, it can be like taking a mini trip into another culture to step into a place that caters to a totally different region of the world. (Shopping the local markets is one of my favorite parts of travelling as well) For example, the Asian market in our area is brimming with huge piles of the most amazing tropical produce - stuff that's totally unavailable in typical grocery stores - from the exotic Dragonfruit featured here, to amazing selections of wild mushrooms, my fav indulgence, creamy, custardy Durian ...

The first words that come to mind are, SO GOOD! I'm in love with these Cheesy Steak Fries. They satisfy on so many levels. For starters, they just look fabulous right! And you can't beat their yummy, cheesy coating amped up with the perfect kick of spice. But wait til you bite into the fantastic contrast of their ever-so-sweet interior - crisp & juicy - a beautifully unexpected pairing to their deliciously complex jackets. Satisfying and addictive. Yes, such a combo exists. As in, every time you open the fridge you'll be smiling at that other half of jicama, knowing you'll be turning it into another platter of Cheesy Steak Fries the very next day. What to serve with these cheesy fries? I like them alongside a side salad or this thick, creamy milkshake :) Now those are amazing combos we can feel great about! Continue reading

Creamy Herbed Goat Cheese is a dream! Perfect for entertaining amongst a gorgeous platter of fresh fruit, crudites or crackers. Or, keep it all to yourself for a yummy sandwich spread. I know I always say this, but this pristine yumminess tastes better than dairy-based cheese... hands down better than store-bought vegan varieties also. Rich, creamy & smooth with an irresistable tang and a zing from your favorite herbs and spices! Being vegan just keeps getting better and better. This recipe is so fun to customize too! Swap out the macadamias for pine nuts or raw cashews. Have fun making your cheese into a classic wedge shape, a cheese log or ball. Coat it in your own personalized mixture of favorite herbs or try a chic coating of fresh cracked peppercorn, lemon zest and himalayan sea salt! Making my own raw vegan cultured cheese always feels like quite the accomplishment! Yet, in actuality it's amazing how very simple the process is ... Continue reading

Welcome to the first of my new Podcast Series! Podcasts are a great way for me to respond to questions and subjects I receive most frequently from you guys so that I can get excellent information out to you quickly. Since I've received many inquiries on this week's topic, the Healing Crisis, I wanted to take this opportunity to explain it in a bit more detail. As we embark upon a detoxifying lifestyle, it's important to be aware of this inevitable stage in healing, and to have some tips on how to survive it. In part 2 I will cover a few additional tools we can use to help ourselves through the detoxification process/healing crisis. Apologies for my test podcast getting emailed out yesterday... that obviously wasn't supposed to happen :) As always, leave your questions and comments below and I'll make sure to respond in detail. How are you doing on your wellness journey? Have you experienced any symptoms of a healing crisis? All Love, Juliane Continue reading

Hello dear friends! I'm back! Please pardon my brief hiatus... things have been very busy here with lots of exciting changes in the air. While it's too soon to share any details yet, at least I can say I've been walking further down my spiritual path, getting closer to what my heart desires... embracing freedom by continuing to let go of my little old- and highly addictive- ego. Speaking of which, ego's unhelpful little voice is yammering at me right now, "What the heck does any of this have to do with Red Bell Pepper Soup?" ... Continue reading

I am in love with plant based Living Foods! SO fresh. So clean. So flavorful. Not to mention energizing, beautifying & healing... they taste better than traditional cooked fare! I really feel it's what nature intended for our nourishment. French Hazelnut Pumpkin Pie with "whipped cream" is no exception - this coming from a girl who always disliked hated pumpkin pie - that is until 6 years ago, when I discovered an amazing French recipe for cooked Hazelnut Pumpkin Pie. Of course, now that I follow a 100% Raw Vegan foodstyle (because it tastes and makes me feel so amazing!) I had to figure out a way to upgrade that French recipe to a delicious, enzyme rich, Living Foods version. And here it is... Continue reading
