I must confess, since it’s summer and the hot weather has finally set in, I’ve been doing a lot of raw eating, that’s what inspired me to add the lovely recipe above from Brigitte Mars.  On really hot days, I make a raw blender salad in my [vitamix] with greens from my garden, avocado and nuts.  I’m loving eating this way while the weather is warm and my digestive fires are high.

I hope you all have a lovely Fourth of July and enjoy the weekend!

    Hey Elana-Happy 4th! Just logged on after a fabulous weekend in the mtns with our son and his friends. Wow–thanks so much for including my recipe and blog in your holiday roundup! I’m honored as always. I know most of these wonderful blogs, but can’t wait to check out the others. The blender salad sounds great. Greens, avocados, and nuts–all my faves! I will check out the recipe and Brigitte Mars info more as well. I’ve been really enjoying raw green smoothies for morning breakfasts lately. :-)

    Thank you, Elana!

    Great round-up. I’m so glad some of my recipes will work (and it reminds me that I need to get working on my own gluten-free recipe category, which I’ve had on my to-do list forever!)
    Happy fourth of July!
