    fantastic as always…
    evaporated cane juice is sugar…double speak for plain old cane sugar.

    I hate that the "health" industry uses such BS terms.

    a little most likely won't hurt you. I'm lucky to simply not have a sweet tooth at all so I rarely use any and when I do I simply don't sweat it because it's so little…whatever it is I use.

  2. That's a winner of a day!

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. kristen, your recipes and blog are just fabulous … thank YOU so much for sharing 🙂

    monica … on a daily basis, i really don't use much, if any, sweetener … and that's probably the best thing … for when i do, i'll be using something besides honey … but it's one of the few things that have really made me go "hmmmm" 🙂 …

  4. Hi Lisa – What a fabulous day! I really look forward to trying these 🙂

    I currently use agave, maple syrup and honey. I have also used something called zylosweet which by the name of it can't be anything natural (read more about it on Kate Wood's Raw Living site.

    Allegedly Living Tree Honey is made by vegans and no bees are harmed in the making …

    Good luck with your search!

    okay this will be our day's meal plan for Sunday (we are going to be out of town on Saturday)

    I don't know if you saw how my first RAW SATURDAY went (I made your entire menu that day) but it was amazing!


    Can't wait for week 2.

    Your blog is fantastic, wow! Thank you for taking the time to price everything out and share recipes & photos. Very well done. I have some big red grapefruits that I got for 50 cents a piece and I'm going to use them to make the sunshine slushie. So happy I found you 🙂

    I just want to comment and say that this is one of the most brilliant blog ideas I have ever come across. I linked your blog to my You Tube account as a blog recommendation for raw food so others could share these blog blessings as well. I don't eat fancy raw foods (I do simple to mono raw meals) but enjoyed viewing this. Gratitude to you and all the beauty you are creating! God bless you well!

    Hi Lisa,

    I switch off between sweeteners and one of my fave's is coconut palm sugar. My local Whole Foods started carrying it the bulk bin at a good price. People can also get it online at places like here:

    People call it raw, but it's described as kettle-boiled, so I believe it's not completely 100% uncooked. Since I use so little and nutritionally it's WAY better than most sweeteners, I'm happy with it.
    Plus it tastes a bit like light brown sugar which is awesome.

    Just popping in here to say thanks for your fabulous blog. I'm new to raw, but loving it, and even more so when I see tempting foods like you show here, which can be made without breaking the bank or spending all day in the kitchen.

    The mango salsa got thumbs up from my meat-and-potatoes husb and even my dau. I'm having a sunshine smoothie this morning, except I added a bunch of carrots and a splash of vanilla for a sunshine creamsicle!

    Thanks so much for the inspiration!
