Winners of the Raw Ball Giveaway!

Thank you ALL SO MUCH for your feedback about my website.  I’ve read all of your comments and slept on it…and I’ve decided to keep it the site name the SAME!  Raw Is Sexy.  I’m not sure why I felt that the name would limit me to what I could write about – when it’s my brand. I guess I have so much to say, that I really want this site to turn into a  huge healthy inspirational oasis of information as well as a candid look into my life! So I will have a new tab on here called

I Need Your Opinion!

I love Raw Is Sexy.  I do.  It’s my company.  I LLC’d it.  I own the name. That’s pretty cool. But www.rawissexy.com  up to this point has been a lot about food and a little about my life.  In addition to this blog, I also have a store on Etsy for my raw vegan treats, and a store on Etsy for my abstract paintings.  I also sell my photography.  I’m a bit of a Jill of All Trades…or Renaissance Woman (although I hate that term because I always picture ugly poofy velvet dresses and people walking around with goblets and giant chicken

Giving Thanks

Normally I would do a lavish raw healthy delicious vegan dinner post for Thanksgiving. But…considering my stitches are still healing and I’m not supposed to lift anything or be on my feet a lot just yet, I’m going to skip the big kitchen holiday meal extravaganza. Instead, I’d like to direct anyone looking for fabulous healthy recipes that are EASY and DELICIOUS over to Oh She Glows!   You can check out Angela’s amazing Thanksgiving menu with recipes included right at this link and you can see plenty of pictures here! Angela did a phenomenal job on her dinner menu and

It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Tumor – Part 3

The tumors are BENIGN! Zero cancer. Nada. Zilch. Zip! Check out Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed them. I met with my surgeon today and read the results of the pathology report from my surgery.  They were traditional dermoids!  Not cancerous!  YAY! DOUBLE YAY! TRIPLE YAY! It’s a huge weight off my mind.  I feel so much better. The dermoids begin as cells in my ovaries, and they grow out of them.  Every single month a woman produces cysts.  That’s what your period is, technically, a cyst that your ovary produces.  Most people have cysts all of the

Spaghetti Squash

What is that giant yellow orb in the veggie section of the store and what EXACTLY am I supposed to do with it? If you ask most people to point out a spaghetti squash, chances are they might not know what one looks like.  There are so many kinds of squash that it’s easy to confuse them.  One spaghetti squash can easily feed 2 to 3 people depending on it’s size which makes it a very inexpensive and healthy dinner option! But how can you eat it if you don’t know what to do with it??? Here are detailed step

Pumpkin Oatmeal

I love oatmeal in the morning.I know oatmeal isn’t raw  (some people say “oh I used raw oats in this recipe”) and even if  you don’t cook the oats you buy, that doesn’t make them raw either.  Most oats are steamed to prevent them from going rancid before they are packaged – so pretty much anytime you purchase oatmeal, it’s not raw.  True raw oats look like teeny tiny grains of rice: That’s your fun fact for the day! Okay, back to my breakfast. In a pot on the stove I combined 3/4 cup of organic pumpkin puree, 3/4 cup

Dinner at Au Lac

Post surgery and recovery I headed to Au Lac with my sister for my first dinner out! My sister lives in Huntington Beach and Au Lac happens to be about a 20 minute drive from her place.  I’ll admit to major envy now that I’ve had the pleasure of dining there. For those of you on the East Coast, Au Lac is right up there with Pure Food and Wine in NYC.  I love Pure.  I thought Pure was the best raw I had ever had, until I visited Au Lac.   I’m completely confused now as to which one I
