Karyn Calabrese, Raw Foodist & Holistic Heath Educator

It's week 2 of my LPB Detox Challenge and mon petites I have not gone to bed hungry nor spent my days starving and salivating while others eat their non-vegan meals. It's no surprise since Karyn our Detox Goddess is the owner of Karyn's Fresh Corner - the longest standing raw foods restaurant in the United States!  Along with the 4 week protocol and DVDs Karyn shares her amazing recipes with us to indulge in.  The vegan fare is flavorful, fulfilling and  as decadent as any meat + dairy laden meal! From shakes, juices to scrumptious manna bread sandwiches you are not deprived - even on a detox!
I for one was surprised that I enjoyed raw food vegan fare as much as I have and definitely plan on continuing dining at raw food restaurants and trying my hands at extremely easy to-do raw food recipes. It's pretty genius how fast you can prepare the meals and truly be satisfied. Here are just a few of my utmost favorite fasting fast food you must try- trust me you will be hooked after the first bite! And don't fret - if you are not the type to get in the kitchen and cook (not over 118 degrees please!) Karyn offers her meals in sealed packages that can be delivered to you on a weekly basis- it's a win win! Now just remember to chew all your food thoroughly and you're golden....

Karyn's Almond Pâté
Makes 8 servings
Pâté is a versatile staple of the raw diet. Change the veggies and
seasonings to vary the taste and create different ethnic recipes.

2 cups almonds
4 cups purified water
1 beefsteak or other tomato
1/4 small white onion
3 to 4 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos
2 cloves garlic
1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Soak the almonds in the water for 8 to 12 hours.
Drain and rinse the almonds. Transfer the almonds to a food
processor and pulse a few times, just until coarsely chopped. Add the
tomato, onion, Bragg Liquid Aminos, garlic, and cayenne. Process until the
desired consistency is achieved. Stored in a glass container in the
refrigerator, Almond Pâté will keep for about 7-10 days. If you don¹t finish
your pate in that time, spread it on dehydrator trays and dehydrate it into
crackers that will keep indefinitely.

Tip: For a creamier pâté, add a small amount of avocado.

Mock Tuna Salad: Add dulse flakes and chopped celery to taste.

Karyn's Green Meal Shake
Makes 1 serving (2 cups)
This delicious shake makes a satisfying raw breakfast or snack that will
keep you feeling full and balanced for hours. It is rich in calcium,
essential fatty acids, fiber, minerals, protein, and vitamins. And people
say vegans are deprived?

1 3/4 cups organic apple juice or Rejuvelac
1 frozen banana (peel before freezing)
2 tablespoons lecithin granules
2 tablespoons Karyn¹s Kare Green Meal Powder
2 tablespoons flaxseed oil or coconut oil

Combine the juice and banana in a blender and process until smooth. Add the
lecithin and process briefly. Add the Green Meal Powder and oil and process
on low to medium speed until well combined. Pour and enjoy!

 High-quality organic apple juice should appear cloudy. Clear apple juice
has been filtered to extend its shelf life, and this process greatly reduces
the amount of healthful polyphenols and antioxidants in the juice.
Use more apple juice for a sweeter shake.

Nut Milk
Makes 3 cups
Soaked nuts and seeds can be used to make tasty alternatives to dairy milk
and cheeses. Nut Milk is a common ingredient in many raw recipes.

1 cup raw almonds or other raw nuts or seeds
6 cups purified water
1 to 2 tablespoons agave nectar or other sweetener
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Soak the almonds in 3 cups of the water for 8 to 12 hours.
Drain and rinse the almonds. Transfer the almonds to a blender
and add the remaining 3 cups of water. Process on high speed for 30 seconds,
or until the liquid is smooth. Strain into a clean glass jar through a
nut-milk bag, a sieve lined with cheesecloth, or a clean knee-high stocking.
Whisk in the agave nectar and vanilla extract. Stored in a sealed glass jar
in the refrigerator, Nut Milk will keep for 5 to 7 days.

If you have a twin-gear juicer, run the blended mixture through the juicer
using the vegetable screen; this will provide the smoothest Nut Milk
possible. Save the pulp to add to other recipes. 
If you are diabetic or watching your sugar intake, stevia is a good
alternative to agave nectar or other sweeteners. Stevia is very sweet, so
only a small amount is needed. Follow the directions on the stevia package
and sweeten to taste.

Now mon petites, don't over indulge! We would love to hear how you like the recipes so  tweet us (@LaPETITEBlog) with the hash tag #KDPRAW or if you are up for the challenge do the detox with me (be sure to consult your physician beforehand)!
