We’re dangerously close to over-dosing on pumpkin here, but that’s not stopping me from sharing this Pumpkin Grain-free Granola recipe with you today: It all started when I got my annual 10-pound raw almond shipment from Briden Wilson Farm (no affiliation, I just love this family farm and I trust that their almonds are raw and unpasteurized): My… [Continue Reading]

Birthday Photo Food Journal & Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Birthday WIAW from Carrie on Living |

Oh hey, I’m 40 y.o. now(!). For whatever reason, I don’t make a big deal out of birthdays, but I kind of celebrated in little ways, like getting these flowers from the farmers’ market: B-day flowers go great with a quick breakfast of gluten-free toast, peanut butter, green juice, and cold-brewed coffee (unpictured, but I… [Continue Reading]

Raw Peppermint Bites & Healthy Holiday Cookies

Raw Peppermint Bites from Carrie on Vegan |

  Have you ever used peppermint extract? I am kind of obsessed with it right now and putting it into everything! The combination of carob or cocoa plus the peppermint reminds me of the old peppermint patties that I used to love, but can’t eat now because of all the sugar. While this recipe isn’t… [Continue Reading]

Carrot Pulp Crackers

Dehydrator in the laundry room

As promised, I’m sharing a much prettier recipe than my ugly tofu burgers yesterday. These crackers are an evolution of my Green Juice Crackers, with the most significant change being the inclusion of raw, soaked almonds with the inspiration from Gena’s Cheesy Almond Rosemary Cracker recipe and the use of strictly carrot pulp like Heather’s Raw Carrot… [Continue Reading]
