How to Make Healthy Snacks with Raw Cashews

Is there such a thing as a healthy snack? I think so, and I think there are a couple of principles to keep in mind if you’re going to eat a snack.

Your snack should be easy to digest

If you’re going to have a snack between meals, make sure it’s easy to digest and that it will not cause any “stomach traffic jams”. Find out more about food combining in this video.

Make Healthy Snacks

Eat a snack only if you’ve got time between meals

What I mean by this is that you should try to eat one meal and then give your stomach time to digest before adding something else on top of that. So if you ate lunch 30 minutes ago, don’t snack right away.

A snack should really be like an island to rest on before you next destination. I think having a healthy snack is important if you’re going to have a late dinner, since it stops you from overeating at dinner.

Eat snacks mindfully

Another trick to having a healthy snack time is to make your snack a mindful activity. Don’t just eat while you’re at your computer or focused on something else. Take a few minutes to unwind while you’re eating your snack, and you’ll find you don’t need to eat as much… and you’ll feel a whole lot better when you get back to your work!

Be prepared with a healthy snack

The problem with snacking is that we usually reach for an instant food when we’re under pressure. Instead of going to the vending machine or stopping by the corner store, bring your own snacks.

Raw Food Dinner Party Ideas to Entertain Guests With

One of the questions I get asked all the time is what do you do when you have guests over? Especially if your guests are not raw or even aware that you’re into eating more raw food.

Well there’s a simple way to deal with that. It’s all about making food that most people would recognize, except instead of buying it in a can or a box you make it yourself.

With that in mind, I’d love to share with you a recipe that is a huge hit with both raw and non-raw friends and family.

My Wicked Guacamole Recipe

Most people will thank you for serving up such a fresh wholesome snack. With the rampant access to unhealthy snacks, everyone is working hard to make healthy choices. You’re actually making it easy for them to eat right!

If you’re really worried that people will want something that’s not raw – you can pair this guacamole recipe with some organic corn chips or some raw crackers.

The dinner itself can be a more traditional dinner with some cooked options. But you can rest easy knowing that you’ve plied your guests with more than their recommended dose of veggies for the day!

More Raw Snack Recipes Coming Your Way…

On the guacamole video page you’ll notice a sign up box to get more recipes. Once you’re on that list you’ll get access to my upcoming free recipe book.

So go ahead, get on the goodies list – and let’s make some delicious snacks for ourselves!

Pulling Back the Curtain on Raw Relationships

This is a doozy. I’ve talked about the topic of going raw with a reluctant spouse or partner in the past.

But now I’m taking you behind the curtain, and showing you my own relationship.

My boyfriend Robin and I have been together for a little over 5 years now. I learned about raw food and decided to go raw about a year and a half into our relationship.

Needless to say he wasn’t keen on the idea of eating only raw fruits and veggies, and it caused a lot of friction for us. But we found a way to make it work.

Watch the video and get a peek inside Robin’s mind and his experience with eating more raw food.

Bewitch Your Spouse on Valentines Day

Bewitch Your Spouse eCourse

If you’ve been struggling with going raw, and your partner isn’t on board it’s time to do something.

Give your relationship the love and attention it deserves. It’s Valentines Day after all.

The Bewitch Your Spouse eCourse came out of the months of struggle I’ve personally experienced.

I don’t want you to put your own relationship in jeopardy by changing your eating habits.

It IS possible to eat more raw food without ruffling feathers and causing both partners headaches or heart aches.

This Valentines Day give yourself and your partner the magick you need: Bewitch Your Spouse.
