Happy Monday Beautiful YOU!

I am officially into week 3 (day 15) of my raw eating and I am LOVING it. There have definitely been some ups and downs. Like wanting a beer soooo bad after Whistler and then yesterday I just wanted a “cheat day” but I somehow remained true to my word! So to satisfy those cravings, I made an unbelievable raw, vegan cheesecake!

Here she is just out of the freezer, (tastes even better nice and cold!)

I adapted this recipe from the only and only Raw Rose’s new Canadian Best Selling book. Here’s a shot of us when were on Vancouver Island. Angels sang when I got my hands on this wonderful “uncooking” book! I love it!

I highly recommend this book for healthy, alternative recipes that are raw AND vegan!

Here is the recipe I followed.

The only difference is that I added raspberries to the batter. The “crust” of the cake is pecans and dates. The filling is cashews, dates, coconut oil, water, lemon juice, vanilla, a pinch of salt and raspberries (which I added)

And that’s it!! Followed everything else closely to her recipe and I thought it turned out delicious.

I’m not really know for my food photography, lol, but you get the drift.

It stays in the freezer, so you can pull it out when you need a fix!

See- RAW can be everything you want and more. I can’t wait to try more recipes…They are great for when you are starting out with Raw Food. It makes the transition easier and more filling knowing that you can still have those “comfort” foods. The nice thing is that it’s straight live enzymes that you body can break down easily and use up immediately- no processed chemical toxins in anything! I take a B12 supplement and everything else I could ever need as far as protein, minerals, vitamins, is all in fresh, ripe raw foods. (I am starting to sound like the raw foodies I interview, lol- It is just that good though) I’m not saying it is for everyone, but it works for me!

Next topic!

We went to Stormtech today for a meeting.

I <3 this place!

Our meeting went well. We are signed on to shoot a bunch more videos! Woo hoo

Here’s Mike getting inspired by the new fall catalogue:)

I had a big voice job to do today too, so its been a long and busy day. Almost done editing the voice files, blog is about to be published and the bed is my next stop!

Have a wonderful evening!
