Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine Phase 1.5 CREATIONS

Hey everybody! Since I've switched to Phase 1.5 of the diet I've felt a lot better. As I previously mentioned, my light headedness has ceded, and I'm still feeling that sensation of stable energy that I had before!

What's interesting is that my appetite has gone down a lot, and I can make it through the day with small snacking and maybe one or two bigger meals. (like a soup, smoothie, salad, wrap, etc.) It's been nice though not to have all of that pressure of preparing so much food.

I thought I would share with you guys a few of my favorite new dishes that I made! I had two birthdays where I was asked to make cakes, and I got a chance to use my new SPRINGFORM PANS! These have seriously revolutionized my raw-food life and make my "cakes" look SO BEAUTEOUS. (good word right?)

Anyhow, tons of pictures below. Check it out!


This is one of the berry popsicles I mentioned. They're a great dessert and are completely low glycemic. Stoked about the lack of blood spikiness. 


This is a picture of the first cake I made. My neighbor Lauren had her birthday, and I wanted to give her a present to thank her for being an awesome friend and for lending me her paddleboard so often! It was a vanilla coconut creme (from rawmazing.com), with an almond date crust (recipe compliments of June Louks), and layered with blueberries from the Malibu farmer's market! (see here: www.malibucopia.com)


Check out that layering! Skills! hahaha


They loved the cake. It was a good compliment!


Undoubtedly the coolest looking dessert I've ever made. Same recipe as above but a bit smaller. (The Louks only had 5 people, and the Weissmans had 10 or 12 I believe.)


The birthday girl and her mom and sister.


Mom and birthday girl!


Tree of Life Phase 1.5 Keylime Pie! Yahooo!!! (so good looking right?!)


Tree of Life Curried Carrot Avocado Soup! It made a great dinner last night.

SO. Allow me to elaborate on what's been going on. The birthday dinner for Hailey at the Louk's house was so much fun. They always have something going on (with 4 daughters it's always going to be action packed!) and it was great to catch up with all of them. Their garden was doing especially well, and I got to go home with a giant bag of local lemons! The dinner was spectacular and the cake was a big hit. All in all it was a lot of fun and I always leave there feeling awesome. It's nice to be in a family environment once in a while.

I have a lot of homework this week so it's been tough to find time to post lately. I will try though! Stay tuned and thanks for readingggggg

All the best,

Cliff

  2. Beauteous indeed! I'm not normally into popsicles, but your berry one is mouthwatering. And all the cakes/pies look amazing! Glad your energy's still high.
