RAWsome Garden Burgers with all the fixings from Robyn Boyd

RAWsome Garden Burgers with all the fixings from Robyn Boyd
Today I am SO honored and pleased to be sharing Several recipes from the Author of "RaweSome Recipes" Robyn Boyd. It has been a pleasure connecting with Robyn. She has a great Story - She took her health issues into her own hands and that is always a beautiful and inspiring thing. I love this quote by Robyn:
"My slogan is: "Don't make food your religion, make it your wisdom". What I have been shown, is that the choices we make in our food selections can absolutely have a direct impact on our bodies, minds and overall well being. But more importantly I was shown, in my long recovery process, that it is the renewing of our minds that truly sets us free. We can eat the purest, most wholesome, immune building foods yet if our minds are filled with negative, fearful, bitter thoughts, we can cause much internal damage. We are not any more spiritual or closer to God because of what we eat. However, making wise, informed food choices can clearly impact our energy, clarity of mind, and immune systems. "
So without further Ado- Meet my Brilliant New Friend Robyn Boyd:

Ok... I know we are barely pulling out of winter into spring but hey I've got tomatoes and coconuts on the brain.
Two weeks ago I taught a workshop on "dehydrator delights" and I made some garden burgers. I must have been on a roll because I was playing in the kitchen trying to come up with condiments for the burgers and was absolutely jazzed with what seemed to effortlessly come through my recipe dream mind! I now am the proud creator of a mayonaise that is dairy, soy, egg and oil free (aside from the oil in the mac nuts)! Could not be happier with this mayo. As if I wasn't happy enough that day, I also stumbled on an idea for a bar-b-q ketchup. Still hungering for warmer days and the foods we love to eat in the backyard, the bar-b-q smokey flavors were wafting through my thoughts. I'm loving these two condiments and it is funny how they can make such a difference to many raw food creations. I wanted to offer you something today that you could use in many contexts. Raw mayo and ketchup... what a concept!

I taught another workshop this past Sunday called "Going Coconuts". We made a five course meal using young Thai coconuts. I couldn't resist sharing this one with you as well, just because it is easy, fun and such a hit!
Eat well and be well!
Cheers,
Robyn Boyd

RawSome Garden Burgers

    Wow, how lucky for us to get all of these awesome recipes! I can't wait to make that burger and mayo.

    I started eating higher raw in January and have learned so much from Bitt and Lisa -- and discovered this series because of them. Can't wait to read the entries all month!
