    concord grapes

    ginger juice with honey and lemon

    fresh picked wild persimmons

  • joannabananajoannabanana Raw Newbie

    mangoes, grapes, and cantaloupe!! those three always feel light in my stomach and put a little pep in my step.

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    Any type of melon and apples!

  • mewmewmintmewmewmint Raw Newbie

    rawkidchef: i'd like to know your recipe for that ginger honey lemon juice... sounds like it would be good

  • cacao


    apple beet juice


  • the59soundthe59sound Raw Newbie

    every single fruit that has passed my lips.

    what's up with the mention of cacao and maca, these are stimulants...

  • hannahmariehannahmarie Raw Newbie

    green smoothies.

  • AVLAVL Raw Newbie

    lauraj, your smoothie combinations sound really good! Can you tell me how much kale, pears and raspberries you put to make that smoothie? I want to try that one too!

  • kale/pear/raspberry smoothie

    dandelion greens/mango/banana smoothie

    sweet honey papayas..not the crap that is transported from afar and tastes and looks like crap. I mean real tropical papayas, fresh

    val. orange/pineapple/apple/lime juice-tastes soo good, really boosts the mood, but drink sweet fruit juices in moderation

    apple/celery juice

    pineapple/celery juice

    fresh made tropical fruit juice (esp. when I'm on vacay abroad in islands!)

    watermelon, especially in the start of the season


    sweet carambola (starfruit)

    dark leafy greens from farmers market

    all fresh picked wild berries and fruits (huge ripe fresh sweet strawberries! raspberries!)

    NY apples picked straight off the tree

    fresh baked organic winter squash (yes, I know not raw)

    fresh young coco water (not the pulp)

    warm organic apricot apple sauce (yes, again, not raw, but soo good and satisfying)

    lemon/lime H2O

    organic Valencia oranges

    sweet honey mangos

    pomegranate- although the time it takes raises my b.p!

    fresh cranberry/apple juice

  • 6 lves red or green kale (red is my fav but I use green sometimes, too)

    3-4 sweet juicy bartlett pears

    pint (or more!) of fresh raspberries (or frozen if need be, but fresh tastes best)..can add more if like, to taste

    H20 to blend

    Devein the kale, deseed the pears, and make sure all organic. Second smoothie is half a head or so fresh org. dandy leaves, 2 lg juicy sweet mango (or more if like), couple bananas and water.

    The pear/raspberry smoothie also tastes pretty darn good without the kale! But I always add the kale anyway.

    These 2 green smoothies are real energy boosters. I often really crave the kale smoothies.

  • avocados...they make a great treat like once a week, and they feel so creamy and lovely!

  • carrie6292carrie6292 Raw Newbie

    cherries.... anything that ends in "erries" :)

  • delalunadelaluna Raw Newbie

    really ripe and juicy and large mangoes

    bananas (i can never get sick of it.)

    ripe figs dipped in coconut oil and some sweetener

    durians (occasionally)

    juicy cucumbers with peels off dipped in some sweetener

    juicy ripe tomatoes dipped in coconut oil and some sweetener

    i actually have these everyday... i feel so blessed :)

    i'd make fruit smoothies but i could never resist eating ripe fruits whole. they look too good to be put into a blender.

  • eechoeecho Raw Newbie

    I hate to be a party pooper, but I wouldn't call cocoa a "healthy high". Don't get me wrong, I love cocoa, but its a caffeine high, which at best is "minimally bad".

  • superfood2superfood2 Raw Newbie

    Spinach and other leafy greens.


  • Green smoothies with tamarind seeds blended in. Tamarind seeds are effective at removing fluoride from the body, especially the pineal gland. Always makes me feel more clear minded after.


    Anything with blue green algae in it. : )

  • liger99liger99 Raw Newbie

    melons and blue berries.

    pinapples too. whenever i eat it, it feels like my tastebuds have gone to heaven

  • mandarines and fresh berries

  • Green smoothies, cantaloupe and watermelon! :)

  • Concord grapes are so plentiful at the market these days that I've been eating BUCKETS of them! it's lovely

  • RawaholicRawaholic Raw Newbie

    kale/celery/apple/ginger/lemon juice

    raw cacao


    orange/cranberry/lome juice blended with raw honey






    grapefruit/strawberry smoothie


  • DeborahBeeDeborahBee Raw Newbie



    Green smoothies of all varieties


  • Hi!

    You know what, I was wondering why Kefir and sourdough bread where not consider as alive food ????


  • RawKidChefRawKidChef Raw Newbie

    mewmewmint, I didn't see your comment from a month ago! the ginger honey lemon juice is really good- it's basically a cup of water plus a small piece of ginger (to taste), squeeze some fresh lemon juice, and a teaspoon to a tablespoon of raw honey blended with a little ice. I don't really measure anything - it's a matter of personal taste.

  • I chuck a teaspoon of Ashwagandha powder into a green smoothie.

    Its a herb that's also known as indian ginseng.

  • My green smoothie with loads of spinach! I have photos of it at www.myreallyrawlife.blogspot.com

    Have a great day everyone!
