It is good to be writing to you! I hope this newsletter finds you raw and enjoying all of the benefits of being raw!

There are some good happenings on the site that I would like to share with you.

Featured Raw Recipe:

The last winner of my Raw Food Recipe Contest is Holly Wolfley. Her winning recipe is Libitaheaven Spice Cookies. You can "meet” her at:

The Featured Raw Food Chef page. Here is her winning raw recipe for you to enjoy:

Libitaheaven Spice Cookies

1 c. pecans, ground
1 c. flax seeds, ground
1 c. dried, shredded coconut (organic, unsulphered, unsweetened)
2 tsp cinnamon, ground
½ - 1 tsp nutmeg
½ - 1 tsp allspice
8 pitted dates
¼ c. (or more) raw agave nectar (to taste)
2 tsp vanilla extract, or scrapings of 1 vanilla bean
½ - 1 tsp almond extract (optional)
¼ - ½ tsp sea salt (optional)

Combine all ingredients in high speed blender or food processor and blend until firm dough forms, may need to scrap sides a few times. Be careful not to let it get hot! Form into cookies or balls using hand or by pressing into a cookie cutter. Eat as is, or dehydrate at 105 degrees 6-24 hours (depending on how moist you like them), flipping several times.

After processing you may also like to add:

Chopped walnuts
Cacao nibs
Goji berries
Any chopped, dried fruit

When they are done you can top them with:

Raw chocolate/carob sauce
Raw Carmel

Have fun with them, make a whole platter full of different creations! They're great dipped in "warm cacoa (or carob)" made with almond mylk.

They are delicious by themselves too! Our favorite way to eat them is to make them into Cookie Dough Balls and eat them without dehydrating. mmmm mmm!

New Pages:

A few new pages on my site is under "Raw Christian" These pages are: the Bible Diet, Garden of Eden Diet, and Daniel Diet. You may find them a bit controversial, but sometimes that is good.!

Raw Beauty Tip:

First Thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, eat a whole raw preferably organic tomato. Don't eat or drink anything else for about 30 minutes. This will help your complexion shine naturally!

Fall "Housecleaning":

While some people do seasonal housecleaning (If you are one of these people, you are welcome to clean my house anytime you wish!) others feel that they should detox their bodies, an internal cleanse, even seasonally. The best way to do this? You guessed it RAW FOOD! (you are GOOD!) Check out the interview I did with Jinjee Talifero, creator of the 21 Days Raw Cleanseto see if you is seems good to you. Even if you are mostly or totally raw now, a raw food cleanse is another way to pamper your body.

Next issue....

Expect a JUICY one!

Joyfully, Mary Jane
