This really does taste like raw popcorn, even though there is neither popping nor corn involved! In fact, for those who are trying to avoid corn, or who are allergic to it, it’s a perfect snack (not to mention being raw)! And it is so darned easy to make, you won’t believe it!
Last week my daughter, of FAB Shows fame, turned me on to those awesome raw cheesy kale chips that are the equivalent of raw Cheeze-Its® or, as some would say, “cheezy kale chips”. (Some even say “chreesy kale chips”, after that vegan, non-dairy cheese substitute called Chreese that is made and marketed by Edwards & Son, and whose main ingredients are wheat flour and nutritional yeast.) In any event, while “kale and fake cheese” may not sound very appetizing, trust me, these are the raw equivalent of Cheese-Its®! They are delicious! In fact, after she made them for us, we had to make more for ourselves just a few days later, we were so jonesing for them!
One of the beauties of raw food is that, while many recipes can seem complex and time-consuming, many others are so simple and so delicious. And this is one of those. These honeyed sesame date gems, served warm from the dehydrator, are melt-in-your mouth wonderful, and so very good for you!
Eating raw foods doesn’t have to be complicated or take lots of time. For example, this raw food trailmix takes all of five minutes to make. Consisting of raw chocolate nibs, raw pumpkin seeds and raw sunflower seeds which have been “roasted” in the dehydrator (you buy them pre-made!) and goji berries, this raw trailmix is that is sweet, salty, fruity and crunchy is sure to satisfy any nibbling craving you have, and is so very good for you!
