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.

Tomato Basil Dressing
Brendan has a few dressing recipes and this one appealed to me because I have so much basil growing right now. I tried it tonight and really liked it. I think I will experiment next time with a little less vinegar and add a little lemon.
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp hemp oil
1 Tbsp dried basil (or 3 Tbsp fresh)
1 Tbsp agave nectar
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
