Raw Pesto/tomato and spirulina green seed crackers


I have seen crackers like these that were very over priced at health food stores and I have always wanted to try making them for myself. Turns out they are super easy to make and really delicious! You can do any flavor combinations you want! If you add oregano and more sun dried tomatoes to my pesto crackers you will have pizza flavored crackers. Great for kids snacks or snacks on the run! You can put avocado or hummus on top or any dip that sounds tasty. These would be awesome crumbled up on salads too!

1 cup sesame seeds

1/2 cup black sesame seeds

Mean green spirulina protein machine!


I’m really into my green smoothies lately because of my amazing new blender and I have decided to go all raw for a while. So far my skin is looking healthier with less acne and feels smoother and I feel light and energetic. My running has been amazing-my muscles feel really strong and not fatigued at all. One thing I love about eating raw is that I get to eat ALOT of food without gaining weight! I am not one that is good at portion control! So massive salads or 4 smoothies in a row work for me because I can pig out and not worry about gaining weight.
