Raw Summer Salads

As the hot summer sun shines down on me, I crave and eat more raw food than any other time of the year. As my passion for clean eating deepens, it only makes sense to eat most, if not all, of my meals in its most natural state: RAW.

When I coach clients to start incorporating a clean eating lifestyle, I promote eating a diet that is 80% raw food. The most commonly asked question is: How do I eat that much raw? Individuals are afraid that they will become bored and not feel satisfied by eating so much raw food. However, once people start eating a diet high in raw food, they are even more satisfied than before, and they have a greater appreciation for food in its most natural state.

Here are some wonderful salads that you can not only eat in the summer, but these salads are great to serve all year long! They are full of variety, color and nutrients, and they will have your taste buds jumping for joy!

Woah… that was a long time!

Well hello clean eaters!

I wasn’t expecting such a long disappearance! My computer was having a new hard drive replaced for the past few weeks. And for what ever reason I wasn’t able to effectively blog from my iPad. Does anyone know how this is done? This would be a great tool to use when I am traveling!

I have a lot of great content that I am eagerly wanting to share with you! This week will be me catch up week… product reviews, announcements and some new and fun projects!

I am also writing some guides that will help those that are wanting to lose weight, start eating clean and just live a better and more positive life. I am so excited to share with all of you!

Upon waiting for my computer to be back in my hands, I have been doing  a lot of recipe searching, especially on the Whole Foods website! They have so many easy and healthy recipes!

Here are some of my favorites in my latest Cooking with Whole Foods!
