Home! We came back to a slight thaw, a warm house, and no frozen pipes–yay! (We learned our lesson well.) Now that we’re back, so is winter, with snow falling like crazy. But inside we’re warm and happy, and our own bed has never felt so good. Land and sea salad: red leaf lettuce, carrot, […]

I’m not raw vegan anymore, but my favorite foods are still plant-based and raw.  Frozen or chilled concoctions with berries and coconut are especially […]
