Now for those Rockstars out there, (you know who you are) Philip McCluskey has revamped and relaunched his site "Loving Raw: the Raw food Rockstar Community" http://www.lovingraw.com/ ! I am loving it. Here is a guy that knows how to party Raw style! Philips is also planning a bi-coastal rockstar birthday party(ies) in November. He is looking to celebrate in N.Y. and L.A. Philip, I am looking forward to partying Rawkstar style!
I also want to give a shout out to the grand opening of the resteraunt/shop/educational facility- 105 Degrees! I so wish I could have attended that event. I know it was absolutely MARVELOUS!! I have seen so many pictures and video's of the celebration and I know that a great time was had by all. I guess I am going to have to take a trip to Oklahoma City (I will blog about that experience when I go) really soon. Man, I am going to book that trip after this blog post. LOL!! In the meantime, check out their site at http://105degrees.com

Hello Everyone!! It’s been a while since I have posted something (well a couple of weeks) and I have had some things going on here in Little Rock. I am enjoying myself learning my way around (thank God for GPS). I was so consumed with acclimating myself with Arkansas, that I almost forgot about VeganMoFo. I wanted this to be the first year participating and I almost missed it. Thankfully I have some amazing friends who kept me in the loop! Thanks Robyn, @ www.girlonraw.com!
Okay down to business, I am going to be posting every day this month some fantastic recipes as well as a look into my life being a mom, wife, and RAW Vegan foodist. So pretty much you will enjoy the fast paced comical world in which I live. This month will be so much fun (well, for me at least). LOL!! Let me start out by re-introducing myself. I am TwinkieR A.K.A. The Raw Twinkie and between my Awesome Hubby (A.H.) and I, I am a mother of 10 children (I physically had three of them). I have been married to my A.H. for going on four years, I am a Raw Food Chef, Life Coach, Writer, and Educator. I lived in Phoenix Arizona until July (my husbands job relocated us) when we moved to Little Rock Arkansas. I can tell you in my household there is not a dull moment. Not even during the sleeping hours. LOL! So now that I have introduced myself, I will say nice to meet you again. Now on to the good stuff.....
I was in the kitchen cleaning out the fridge yesterday when I decided to make a soup out of what I had left. I will tell you that it was one of the best soups I have ever made since going RAW. I was impressed with how incredible the flavors meshed together. The boldness of the herbs gave way to the Campari tomatoes and let them be an incredible star in this soup. Since I am used to really warm weather in Phoenix, I was trying to prepare my
mind for the fall here in Arkansas. It is starting to get cooler and I was looking for some tips and suggestions on how to adjust to being RAW in the fall and winter. After this soup however, after eating this soup, I dont think I will have to worry at all!
Fall RAW Vegetable Soup!
Makes about 3-4 servings
1 carrot (chopped) 1 cucumber
1 1/2 cups of spinach
1 clove of garlic
3 campari tomatoes
1/2 of a red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, and a yellow bell pepper
2 green onions
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 tablespoon of fresh sweet basil
1 tablespoon of italian herb seasoning
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
1 tablespoon of hemp seeds
1/2 teaspoon of celtic sea salt (more if you desire)
1/2 cup of Water
Blend all ingredients together until soup (creamy) consistency and enjoy!
To add some texture to the soup I chopped some additional bell peppers, carrots, and green onions and tossed them in after the soup was finished blending. I loved it! Not only me but........
My three year old was all over my soup.
I am grateful that she loves fruits and veggies though. Eat as much as you like Ce Ce, just save mom some! ;-)
Much love to you and yours,
TwinkieR a.k.a. The RAW Twinkie
