Walnut Poppyseed Cake
From: Dining In The RAW by Rita Romano pg. 116

1 cup - Poppy Seeds
2 cups - Walnuts
1 cup Dates
2 cups carrot puree
2 tbsp. dried orange peel
1 tbsp. braggs
2 tbsp. psyllium seed powder

Put enough carrots to make two cups of puree through the Champion Juicer Chops walnuts into a fine consistency in the Food Processor with "S" blade. Set aside. Combine carrot puree and remaining ingredients in processor until well blended. Mix all ingredients together. Add a little more psyllium if necessary to hold cake together. Press into bundt pan and chill to set. Share with Family & Friends and Enjoy!



1 cup soaked sunflower seeds
1 cup soaked walnuts
1 cup soaked almonds
1 tomato
1 cup red onion (chopped)
3 tablespoons flaxseed
3 teaspoons cumin seed
2 teaspoons salt

Mix in food processor or Champion Juicer with blank on. Spread on parchment paper or TefIon sheets. Make them very thin.

Then using a pizza cutter, cut in squares. They will be easier to break into pieces when dry.

Dehydration time is about 15 to 20 hours.

Nut-free bread

Makes 18 ’slices’

1/2c olive oil
1 ½c sun dried tomatoes
3c sprouted buckwheat (2 ½c dry & unsprouted)
1 ½c flax meal
3 ½c peeled courgette, roughly chopped
2c apple, cored and roughly chopped
3T lemon juice
2 avocados
1 large onion
½c minced parsley

- Process the olive oil, sun dried toms, sprouted buckwheat, courgette, apple, lemon juice, avocados, onion and herbs until thoroughly mixed.

- Transfer to a large bowl and mix with the flax meal by hand. The reason you do this separately (not in the processor) is that you are likely to have too much mixture for the size if the processor at this point, and when you add the flax meal it will become quite heavy and sticky and overwork your machine.

- When mixed, process the whole batter in the machine again, but in small batches to achieve a light fluffy texture.

- Divide the mixture in half and place on Paraflexx sheets on dehydrator trays.

- Use a spatula to spread the mixture evenly to all 4 sides and corners of the Paraflexx sheet. If mixture is too sticky you can wet the spatula to make things easier. With a knife score the whole thing into 9 squares.

- Dehydrate for 2 hours and then remove the Paraflexx sheets by placing another dehydrator tray and mesh on top and invert so that your original sheet of bread is upside down. That will allow you to peel the Paralexx sheet off and continue to dehydrate the underside of the bread.

- Dehydrate for approx 8 hours more (do this overnight so you’re not tempted to eat it before it’s ready) or until bread feels light in your hand. If the pieces don’t fully come apart where you scored, use a knife to cut them.


1 large eggplant, thinly sliced lengthwise
3/4 c. oil
1 tsp. cayenne
2 Tbl. honey
4 Tbl. Ume Plum Vinegar

Marinate for 2 hours. Place on teflex sheets and dehydrate for 9 hours. Turn bacon over and dehydrate another 9 hours.

2c fresh Tomatoes
1 soft date
1 clove garlic

3T olive oil
5 large basil leaves
¼c water

- Grind the almonds to crumbs, in a food processor.

- Form into small balls and dehydrate for 6 hours or until they are slightly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

To serve

Take a couple of handfuls of mixed leaves per person (a mix of rocket & chard is great), and mix with strips of courgette (zucchini) pasta. To make enough courgette pasta for 4 people, use the following recipe:

4 medium courgette
¼c olive oil
2t salt

- Cut the courgette length-wise in a mandoline. Lay the strips on top of each other and, using a knife, cut them length-wise into fettuccini-style strips.

- Mix the strips with the olive oil and salt in a large bowl and allow to soften for a couple of minutes.

- Mix the polpetta with the salsa, and place even amounts on top of each courgette salad (the pasta strips and leaves, mixed) that you have arranged on the plates.

Super Tasty, super easy versatile cookies that you can do absolutely anything with. Get creative and anything that strikes your fancy!


1 Cup Raw Almond Butter
1/2 cup Agave or Raw Honey
1tbs. Culinary quality Vanilla extract (free from preservatives and glycerin)
Himalayan Sea Salt

Approx 1 cup of Almond, Walnut or Pecan flour (Simply grind chosen nut in coffee grinder)

Variations for the nut flour:
Coconut shavings
Raw Cocoa Powder


Simply combine Almond butter, Agave, Vanilla and salt to make a basic batter. Feel free to add anything beyond that such as raisins, Lemon zest, 1/4 cup cocoa powder ect.

Place the 'flour' in a small bowl or plate.

Proceed to place spoonfuls of dough into the flour, coconut shavings, cocoa powder ect.. and roll around to ensure all the outside layers are evenly coated. Place on a plate lined with wax paper (I feel it helps prevent freezer burn) and place in the freezer for approximately 15 minutes or until they are firm.

Eat and enjoy.

Takes approximately 10 minutes! to prepare!

hope this gets you all kick started
with ideas for the week.
a yummy day to you!
