Raw foods have a bad rap for being overly complicated, expensive, and way too time-consuming for home preparation. While we’ll give you that raw foods can be pretty daunting, especially for a beginner, one chef has unlocked the key: Flexible raw recipes for everyday life, with substitutions and variations that ensure anyone can prepare her foods. That chef is Amber Shea Crawley and her newest book, Practically Raw Desserts, makes sweet raw treats accessible to everyone. How could we not give away a copy of this go-to cookbook to a lucky Vegan Cuts blog reader?

Garden of Life has been treating vegetarians and vegans with plant-based protein powders and meal replacers for years. The company is crazy committed to supporting healthy lifestyles and healthy bodies, without relying on chemicals or medicines on a daily basis. Many of their products are 100% vegan, certified organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO.* Obviously, this makes us love them right off the bat.
In the August Vegan Cuts Snack Box, we treated subscribers to a taste of Garden of Life’s RAW Protein Energy in Guayaki Yerba Mate and Marley Coffee, which are Whole Foods Market exclusives flavors. Since then, Garden of Life has launched Perfect Food RAW, an innovative line of supplement products packed with the power of 34 nutrient-dense, RAW, organically grown greens, sprouts and vegetable juices. This week, Vegan Cuts blog readers have a chance to win a tub of each new product in the line.
Confession: I have a sweet tooth. And I’m not talking about the occasional need for a treat. I’m talking about “Give me a cookie now!” Every single day. Sure, my meals are composed of smoothies, protein-rich salads, and tons of delicious produce, but the evil sugar monster still controls part of my brain. That’s why I was delighted at the opportunity to review the Rawjuvenate Organic Detox System by Raw Green Organics.
Not too long ago, my door bell rang and I found myself in possession of the Rawjuvenate Detox System by Raw Green Organics. Am I the healthiest vegan? Um, no. Do I eat vegan ice cream for dinner sometimes? No comment. While I love my kale and I often eat a salad, I’ll admit, I could certainly use more healthy options in my routine, so the Rawjuvenate system is a welcome addition in my household.
