During the summer of 2011, I made a change in my diet. I was eating processed foods, meat, and dairy on a daily basis. I now consume approximately 60% raw vegan foods, 30% cooked vegetarian foods, and 10% meat. Give or take. I have energy throughout the day from 4am to 9pm everyday. This, despite the fact that I don't drink coffee and work out 5-6 days a week. Oh, and my lifelong seasonal allergies are now gone. These are recipes I use to maintain my awesome diet.

Corn and Bean Salsa
This is my own and it's super easy! Combine one can corn, one cup black beans, diced tomatoes, diced onions, chopped cilantro, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1-2 tsp chili powder, fresh lemon juice from half a lemon, half teaspoon ground oregano, salt and pepper. Voila! You can have it as a salsa side, or add chopped red leaf lettuce for a salad.
