  1. Omygoodness! that ice cream cake looks to die for! I am freezing right now, I think I'll warm up with some herbal tea!

    Froodles! I love it! Now you have me tempted to run a mango through my spiralizer…but I don't know how I'd work around the pit. Maybe in two large chunks? I'm just terrible with a veggie peeler.

    I really love how your salads and entrees are simple, but with simple ingredients used in super interesting ways. That way, you get the natural goodness of the food and some stimulating creativity.

    My first winter while I was raw I was extremely cold. Cooked food didn't sit well with me so I kept at it. Turns out I had a thyroid issue and it was making me really cold (it's a common symptom). I don't stay 100% raw anymore. If I want a hot soup, I do it. But tea is a great warm drink too.

    Wow! What a divine ice cream cake. It looks so doable. I also enjoyed your combination of fruit and cayenne. It reminds me of buying mangos sprinkled with cayenne in Mexico.

    What a beautiful raw cake!! I love the simplicity of your recipe, so many raw recipes are just too "busy" if you know what I mean; takes the fun out of raw food prep at times. I love all of your recipes because they are delicious and beautiful to look at too.
    I stay warm by layering clothes…I still eat all of my cold raw food throughout the winter. I don't crave warm foods when it is cold outside, instead I like a slightly hot cup of herbal tea w/ raw honey.
    Peace and Raw Health,

    Oh my goooodness Lisa! Your ice cream cake looks divine. The wintery scene looks much like what I see out my windows.
    I stay warm with a fire in the woodstove, plenty of hot tea, and warming foods – eating cooked food and animal products have warmed me like no other, after years of being cold all the time.

    Thanks for all your great recipes ! <3

    I hate to admit it, but after years of experimenting, I actually up my amount of cooked foods in the cooler months. I'm still cold, but not as freezing as I used to be. When I do eat raw foods, I try to eat them at room temp or slightly warmed in a dehydrator. I really like soups this time of year, especially with some cayenne pepper for heat.

    cooked grains and veggie soups keeps me warm, and they heat the kitchen up.=)

    yesterday i felt like i was coming down with something so i added hot but not boiling water to a bowl of miso, ginger, carrots and celery. it was so nice and warming, and probably close to raw so full of healing benefits. and i feel much better today!

  9. Froodles! I love it..

    your cake looks amazing..

    If I were raw in the winter I would eat lots of chipotle and ginger and drink hot tea!

    I try not sit around too much-the more active I am the warmer I stay, hot tea, and a good hot wood fire to keep the house cozy.

    Oh wow you are a genius! I love your blog!! I can't wait to get started on some of these.

    As far as keeping warm in the winter months I have to admit, since being macrobiotic before going raw, it's become a habit to eat seasonally as well as locally. So for instance I would not be able to use papaya and mango but would keep the apple and raisins. Last year I was eating coconut a lot but still felt fine in NY Just be careful not to overdo the summer foods, you are teaching your body what time of year it is, and the foods were meant to help you adjust to the climate. No bananas for me and instead of agave, maple syrup. The crushed pepper, cayenne and cinnamon are all warming. Maybe add ginger. I like the ginger tea idea someone had, I just started doing that last week for the first time.

    soups! I love hot soups and tea in the winter. and even though that's an ice cream cake I see I would so gobble that up in the middle of a deep freeze. Looks so good Lisa!
