Here you have it! One of my favorite summer meals. This recipe can be and appetizer served with tortilla chips or a main dish served with romaine lettuce. All the enzymes of the raw fruit and vegetables will keep your skin glowing and nourishing your body!
For a more sophisticated presentation, you can add cooked shrimp to your wraps!
This is a Vegan appetizer that would impressed anyone. The freshness of the coconut meat, the crispiness of the hearts of palm and the sweetness of the mango makes a perfect combination of flavors and textures.
Growing up in Peru, I learned the secrets of how to make a traditional Fish Ceviche with its white milky juice called "Leche de Tigre" witch means in English "Tiger's Milk". Leche de Tigre is the leftover flavorful juice in which the raw fish gets marinated and most people drink it afterwards.
In this Vegan recipe you will have almost the same effect after combining the lime juice, garlic, aji panca, ginger, salt and coconut milk. Even thought there's no fish to marinate, you still want to soak the coconut meat for a few minutes so it absorbs all the flavors.
To create a beautiful presentation when serving this dish. You can use a martini glass or a square dish. Garnish it with mint or cilantro and the sliced avocado.
The story goes that Falafel, despite its strong connection with Israel, actually originates from Egypt, and was originally made from Faba beans. Its roots can be traced right back to the Christian of Egypt who were forbidden from eating meat during certain holidays and came up with a falafel-like alternative. This traditional recipe is full of flavor and texture. Serve it with Tatziki sauce and use it as an appetizer or in Pita bread with our Asian slaw
Lo Mein, a traditional Chinese dish has become also an American favorite. You can find it in almost any Chinese restaurant in the US and often is offered with the addition of meats or seafood.

Make it for dinner, take it to the office or a picnic and you will be replenishing your body with REAL foods that will give you nutrients and energy. Note: We like to keep the tomatoes, cucumber and feta on the side until the time of service so our greens stay crunchy.
The french dish Ratatouille is a variation of similar dishes from the mediterranean, you can have it as a main or side dish, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. At The Real Food Academy, we like this dish not only for its rich taste but also because is nutritous and fun to make! Kids and adults like building this casserole style dish either family style or in ramekins. In the instructions, you will find terms such as concasse
, these are technical terms for peeled and seeded tomatoes and thinlly sliced herbs. Follow the notes in the recipe so you can concasse your fresh tomatoes to perfection and chiffonade your basil like a pro! Bon appetite!

Here is the solution: Dates, sun butter, oats and fruit preserves come together to form a most delish raw cookie with REAL ingredients. Kids and adults will absolutely come for seconds on this one.

What's best is that you are skipping on the enriched processed flour, the added sugar, preservatives, artificial coloring and other fake ingredients that have little or no nutrition and that you want to avoid at all cost!

In other words, make it one day before the party and cook it minutes before serving it!

Top with Cayenne pepper for a spike in hotness.
