What’s not to love about raw desserts? Not much!

And yet the fat content (with most recipes very high in nuts and oil) is often off the charts, making them a very unhealthy alternative when you’re really looking for something healthy 🙁

I love playing around with raw food recipes, making them low fat, no fat or lower fat, and I have certainly had fun coming up with this absolutely delectable but healthy treat.

How to Get Your Family to Eat More Raw Foods

You LOVE raw foods, right?

So why doesn’t everyone around you love them too?

Why can’t they see that all those dead animal flavoured excitotoxic chemical-laden non-foods are killing them slowly and that raw whole plant foods are the obvious choice for vibrant health?

Raw Recipe: Sweet Chilli Noodle slaw

Sweet Chilli noodle slaw

If you’re craving cooked food at night time then this dish will totally take care of that hankering.

Nadia has her own youtube channel called Fat2Fitonfruit.  You should definitely check her out as she has the most amazing raw transformation story where she lost 40lbs in 6 months eating as much raw fruits and veggies as she cared for.

This dish has become one of my absolute favorites, perfect for that warming, spicy, noodley itch you need to scratch on a cold autumn or winter night.  Having said that, I see no reason why you wouldn’t absolutely love it in Summer too!
