    Raw food is something I’ve always been interested in but nervous to start cooking on my own. It seems hard, even though it’s the simplest stuff. Is that weird? haha I’d love to go to 105 degrees and learn! Very cool 🙂

    So much delicious-ness is overwhelming 🙂 I’m beginning to believe that there’s NOTHING you can’t make with a food de-hydrator! Yogurt? Who would’ve thought?! Obviously I’m drawn to the chocolatey goodness in today’s post, but the crepes look heavenly as well.

    That fruit and yoghurt bowl looks so divine and refreshing. It also make you an honourary Aussie, because about 9 out of 10 Aussies proclaim mangoes to be their favourite fruit. (Okay, so that’s my statistic, but honestly almost everyone does.)

    I”m also really intrigued by the bee pollen. I spent fifteen minutes at the health food store last week end looking at bee poleen but I chickened out, and when I came home I couldn’t even find any good information about it on the internet. What is it like? Does it taste like much? I’m guessing it’s some sort of superfood?

    P.S. Sorry to bombard you like this, love, but that’s what you get for being so S-M-R-T.

    The combination of yogurt, coconut and mango sounds divine. I’m not sure I’m up to the task of making my own coconut yogurt…but I’m definitely in for some store bought yogurt mixed with shredded coconut, drizzled with honey, served with mango. Wow!

    I want some of that coconut yogurt! I knew some people would be asking about recipes. It all looks so tantalizing!

    I am tempted by Russell’s DVD course too. We’ll see what pans out for me. I love all his ebooks, I need the cheese one! Just for the garlic bread, lol.

    Everything looks amazing and so decadent for breakfast. Who said raw peeps have to have smoothies all the time?

    Impressive crepes! I’m always so amazed at how flat things are when they come out of the dehydrator. Both look really tasty.

    I’m in awe of all of this! You share such wonderful photos, Amber…..you make it such a joy to follow your experience!!

    Count me in as curious about the bee pollen.

    Isn’t it funny how some things are all in the name? For instance, as a happy flesh-eating carnivore, I adore bacon. When I first read about the eggplant bacon, however, I was revolted. I mean, come on! Why are we ruining the eggplant by forcing it to be bacon? Why are we not happy to let the eggplant be eggplant?

    Yes, I was offended on behalf of my pretty purple friend.

    But then I got to thinking about the ways that I prepare eggplant….and a seasoned, smoked slice of eggplant sounds awesome. So I learned that “eggplant bacon” turns me off, and “smoked eggplant” turns me on. Semantics….go figure.

    I think this is partly due to my aversion to things that pretend to be meat but aren’t for the sake of vegetarians who don’t want to give up the cow. It’s my own little hang-up, I know, but the concept bothers me. If you are going to be vegetarian, then be vegetarian and celebrate the multitude of options available to you without resorting to over-processed “meat substitutes.” Perhaps my opinion is of little use, being the omnivore that I am (and will forever be, most likely). But if I’m not asking a nicely marbled ribeye to pretend to be broccoli, why should another deny the broccoli its true birthright?

    Moral of the story, I want to eat that smoked eggplant. All of it. If anyone wants to start a “Save the Eggplants!” movement, just call it eggplant bacon in your letter to me. 😉 hehe

    Yummy….I’m hungry, can you send me some of that yogurt and some of those crepes please…lol The food looks awesome!

    To answer your question from yesterday about which cookbook I’m thinking of getting first…I think it will be Ani Phyo’s. Only because I don’t have a high speed blender or dehydrator yet. I have a long list of kitchen toys that I want and need. Maybe I will get one or two of them for Christmas…..hopefully. 🙂

    Beautiful succulent esculent morsels, food porn at its highest! Bee pollen is wonderful stuff: in those little pellets, they’ve been knocked off the legs of bees as the bees go into the hive. Ethical beekeepers don’t collect every day but only a proportion of the time.

    I love the idea of coconut yogurt – I wish I could learn how to make that (no young cocos in AK though). But probably like my coconut kefir a bit.

    As a smoothie lover above all else, I’d nonetheless love to learn how to make the crepes and eggplant and mushrooms and spinach – yummy veggie mixture, maybe for a meal other than bfast for me.

    All so beautiful as always. Inspirational.

    I may not be able to comment so much for the next few days – have been complained for spending too long on puter while visiting and going out to catch up with old friends so much – but I will catch up when I can.

    Lol. Sacchariferous. That’s a good word. 🙂

    All you food looks gorgeous! With each blog post you inspire me!

    I’d really like to get a better dehydrator so I create a wider variety of foods. My little one just ain’t cutting it. I’m dying for a square one. A BIG, square one. Lol.

  16. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin'

    I want you to come over and teach me how to make coconut yogurt! That looks like such a tasty breakfast!!

    And your crepes look so pretty! You’re inspiring me to give my dehydrator a little workout soon… 😉

  17. welcome to our wonderland

    Now i want crepes.!!!

    I don’t think I’d be able to wait to eat the damn food with it looking that great! I’m assuming they help you learn presentation… I love how the presentation of the foods look. It just makes it all so beautiful. Honestly, food is art.

    I’m struggling to wrap my head around those strips of eggplant bacon.

    The savory crepe looks fabulous!
