Everyday Fruit Smoothie

Every single day, or almost, I make myself this smoothie. I simply switch out the fruit, for variety’s sake, but the base is always the same. This recipe is for two 16-oz smoothies, but I personally drink this Everyday Fruit Smoothie all by myself for a breakfast that’s nourishing, filling and healthy. Incorporate one smoothie a day into your routine, and reap the benefits!

And if you like smoothies as much as I do, check out this Energizing Chocolate Smoothie.

Raw Wild Rice Salad with Apple and Pomegranate

Raw Wild Rice Salad with Apple and Pomegranate
Raw Wild Rice Salad with Apple and Pomegranate

Do you know Aris Latham? He is the driving force behind SunFired Ra Cuisine. He is a great soul that truly inspires me, someone I consider a master when it comes to clean eating. In his ebook, SunFired – Festive Raw Food Recipes, Baba Aris instructs us to soak wild rice instead of cooking it. We let it bloom, which means we soak it for 24 hours, changing the water after 12 hours. The reason wild rice doesn’t need to be boiled is because it is actually a grass. Keeping it raw will therefore keep its nutrients. SunFired Food is the bountiful cuisine prepared by the best chef of all, the SUN. He adds: “The growing period is the cooking process… we do not cook the sun out of the food.” So yes, let’s explore!

For another wonderful recipe with wild rice, please check out this Wild Rice with Acorn Squash, Caramelized Onions, Pomegranate and Maple Vinaigrette.

Hearts of Palm Ceviche

Hearts of Palm Ceviche
Hearts of Palm Ceviche

I’ve always loved hearts of palm. I would simply slice them up and season with sea salt, pepper, and a dash of olive oil. But there was something about their texture that made me think they would be absolutely perfect in a fish-less ceviche. And I was right. This Hearts of Palm Ceviche is bright and colorful. It is perfect served with tortilla chips, on a tostada, or, my favorite way, on plantain chips. It would also look lovely as an appetizer for a more formal affair, served in martini glasses and a delicate spoon. Either way, the taste is absolutely fresh and fantastic. Try it now!

Ceviche de cœurs de palmier

J’ai toujours eu un certain penchant pour les coeurs de palmier. Je les assaisonne simplement de sel de mer, de poivre, et d’un trait d’huile d’olive.

Cette recette, fraîche et colorée, se sert parfaitement bien avec des tortilla chips, sur des tostadas, ou même dans des verres à martini, comme entrée lors d’un dîner entre amis. Essayez-la!

Super Simple Watermelon Poke Bowl

Super Simple Watermelon Poke Bowl
Super Simple Watermelon Poke Bowl

This is a super simple watermelon poke bowl. Because who has two hours to fuss in the kitchen? You make the marinade, you let the watermelon soak in it overnight, and the next day, you have poke. The marinade is tangy and has the perfect bite. You can leave the watermelon in the marinade even after it’s ready, and simply take out what you need with a slotted spoon until no more.

In its traditional form, poke is diced raw fish served either as an appetizer or as a main course and is one of the main dishes of Native Hawaiian cuisine. And if you like fruits in savory dishes, check out this Millet Salad that features strawberries and this Chickpea Curry with Figs and Apricot.
