Driving from MI to AZ

Greetings boys and girls. It’s been a long time since my last post and I’ve traveled many miles and had lots of experiences since my last days at Camp Rawnora in Michigan.Sunset_rainbow_TreeOfLife

I was in Patagonia, AZ managing the cafe at The Tree of Life for several months. I enjoyed my brief time in the cafe and living in raw vegan community. Patagonia is a special place and I was fortunate to be there for monsoon season. The desert comes alive when the rains arrive.

I lost my dad to cancer in September of 2015 and returned to Florida to be closer to my remaining family. I’m still grieving and processing his passing. I miss my dad, Mr. Phil. He was my biggest supporter and my raw food buddy. I love you “D”.raisedbed_LFE

Now I’m living in Orlando, consulting full time at a juice bar called Juice’d. I’ve got a garden, fruit trees and even a worm farm. I plan on returning to more frequent posts, videos, recipes and more.

Epic Vegan Kiwi Pineapple Macadamia Pie

 

Macadami_kiwi_pie1   Greetings Health Fans,

Feast your eyes on this beauty of a raw vegan pie. It’s often difficult for me to eat something that looks so beautiful but the only thing better than how it looks is how it tastes.

Macadami_kiwi_pie5Don’t take my word for it though. Make one yourself. The crust features macadamia nuts and dates. The bottom layer has cashews, coconut milk and maple syrup. The top whipped layer uses the meat from young Thai coconuts blended with coconut milk and more macadamias. A layer of kiwi separates the bottom layer from the whipped goodness on top. The good news is that this pie is cruelty free, dairy-free and gluten-free. Follow the recipe below to experience your very own high pie-brational bliss.

Chef Adam’s Creations – Years in the Making

CAC site banner2Greetings Health Fans,

You may have noticed the new banner across the top of my website. It features the new logo for my food production business: Chef Adam’s Creations. This has been an on going process that has spanned a couple of years now. It’s a slow process, made even slower because I’ve been working on most of it on my own. Little by little things get done and now I’m finally unveiling the first snack items: Being Bites. This is a line of raw, vegan and gluten-free granola. Featured flavors are Pumpkin Seed Brittle, Cashew Curry Crunch and Almond Ginger Snap. All 3 have a unique flavor, are made with high quality ingredients and are super satisfying… some might say addictive.
