Rawlicious Recipes by Andrea Cox.

Skin healing tonic! Get beautiful glowing skin now!

I recently had a client come to me that had suffered with eczema for almost three years! I created an AMAZING juice for her to drink each morning that solved her skin issue almost immediately! 

The recipe is as follows and it must be made fresh daily and drank on an empty stomach! EVERYTHING MUST ALWAYS BE ORGANIC WHEN JUICING!

6 carrots (High in vitamin A)

2 inches of burdock root (great liver detoxifier)

1/2 inch of turmeric root (anti inflamatory)

1/2 of one cucumber (excellent for acne)

two stalks of celery (high in natural salt and hydrochloric acid to aid digestion)

a pinch of powdered ginger (great for digestion)

a pinch of cinnamon (blood stabilizer)

a pinch of cayenne  (lymphatic mucous destroyer)

Juice all of the ingredients and then pinch in small amounts of the ginger, cinnamon and cayenne! Watch any and all symptoms disappear!

Post yoga raw vegan “cereal” with brazil nut “milk”!

Mmm! It’s 3am and I’m already up creating a delicious after yoga breakfast for my girlfriends and I! We are headed to a 5am hot yoga class! I get excited for yoga! I get even more excited over good organic raw vegan food! Wild local blueberries, fresh mint, “nannas” and golden mulberries! I’m topping this with Brazil nut “milk” infused with vanilla bean and cinnamon!

 

The recipe is simple!

1 Cup blueberries fresh or frozen

1 banana chopped 

4 mint leaves chopped

1/2 Cup golden mulberries 

dash of cinnamon 

 

For the “milk”

Take 1 Cup of Brazil nuts and blend them in a high power blender with three cups of water. Strain through a strainer or nut milk bag and add fresh vanilla bean!

 

Pour the Brazil nut milk over the chopped fruit and devour without shame or guilt!

To be a Queen, you must eat like one!♡♡♡ #foodporn #lfrv #rawvegan #fullyraw #wholefoods

Weekly update with video:)

INSPIRATION! Growing up in school I would often walk with my shoulders slumped forward a bit. I was always trying to fit into my view of what was “normal”. All of this because one mean girl called me “Andre the giant”

Today, I LOVE my height! 

Don’t ever try to make yourself appear smaller than you really are to appease others. These things we view as flaws often end up being major blessings!

RELATIONSHIPS! Now lets get into a little “man talk” shall we? This has been on my mind the past few weeks as i am dating again. Quite honestly the quality of men in my “sphere” are STELLAR!

I feel many men are simply getting a bad rap:(

I truly believe all “good” men have the ability to become “GREAT” men when paired with the right woman! Men are so incredibly beautiful. They are such simple creatures! There is very little mystery to them. 

You can take a man who is considered to be a bad boy, pair him with a gal who loves, respects, listens, pleases and appreciates him and he will move mountains for her!

 

DETOX RECIPE! I LOVE when my body is flowing in perfect harmony with the live food I give it! Wild edible salad of arugula, mustard greens and nettles topped with sprouted walnuts, dates and shredded coconut! I used my sweet and sour dressing with a touch of lecithin to mesh the flavors! Vegan food porn at its fine!

Chewy raw vegan carob coconut fudge brownies! Just in case you still thought raw vegans were eating celery sticks:)

I had a craving last night for something chewy, sweet, yet incredibly healthy! I decided since it was late I didn’t want the “high” that raw chocolate gives to me. Here is what I came up with below:) I assure you that these SO hit the spot! Try topping with a dollop of raw vegan coconut “vice cream”!

 

Raw vegan carob coconut fudge brownies!

1 Cup gluten-free oatmeal

1 Cup carob chips

1/2 Cup coconut oil

1/3 Cup GRADE B Maple syrup (Grade B is less processed)

1/2 Cup shredded coconut

1/4 Cup soaked and sprouted pecans

Take the oatmeal, coconut oil, grade B maple syrup and shredded coconut and pulse in a food processor. Place mixture into a bowl and fold in the carob cups along with the pecans! Place the entire mixture into a baking dish and place into the fridge or freezer until desired brownie texture is reached! INDULGE without guilt or shame knowing you are eating a healthy sweet treat FULL of minerals due to the Grade b maple syrup!

Lets get healthy together in 2015! Once and for all!

Wishing all of you an incredibly healthy, happy New Year! From my big open heart to yours…Happy New Year!
Thank you for allowing me into your homes via my news feeds and videos♡♡♡ I truly appreciate each and every one of you and only want the very best for you! 

This is why I am taking on five clients during the month of January!

When 2014 rolled around I set a goal to not only appear on TV more than I had in the past spreading the word about health and wellness. I also wanted to help a minimum of fifty clients one on one! These private clients were not to be part of my retreats. I was seeking to help serious people who had either a serious health issue or needed to lose a significant amount of weight. I’m happy to say I’ve helped forty-five of those fifty! 

During this time, I’m going to show you one on one how to first cleanse your body and then how to keep it clean while removing excess weight and toxicity FOR GOOD! The beautiful thing is, you are eating the entire time, abundantly!

This by NO MEANS is a diet! It is a life style change! I will be speaking to you on the phone or via Skype daily for a period of thirty days in order to keep you on track! You will also get exclusive access to my private membership site prior to it being open to the public! Along with all of this you will get a program that I design exclusively for you in an audio and written format!

This will go fast…so if you message me ( at the address below) and I don’t respond, that only means all three spots have been filled. You are more than welcome to private message me at a later date if that happens, and if you are EXTREMELY interested…I may be able to fit 1 or 2 more of you in.

If you are reading this and know someone that can potentially benefit from this, please SHARE this! They will be thankful and so will I!:)

Why I LOVE making a meal out of a salad!

I absolutely love to make big salads for dinner! The salad that I make most frequently is a sweet yet hearty date walnut salad with my sweet and sour dressing! It’s one of my comfort foods. Kinda like eating a bowl full of candy on Halloween!

I also make lots of other different varieties, including kale and my famous tahini salad! Adding kelp noodles is a great way to add more substance to a salad. The Salads like the ones I have in the slide show below are hearty enough to make your whole family happy, but if you’re worried they won’t be quite enough, you can easily supplement with fresh raw vegan gluten free bread topped with avocado…yumm! Below are my top three all time favorite salads to make! I casually list the ingredients! Use your imagination and supplement with what you prefer! I LOVE when my body is flowing in perfect harmony with the live food I give it!

My top ten tips for beautiful GLOWING skin!

WOW!  I sure do get a lot of questions about juicing, fitness, yoga, detoxification and raw food! Heck I even get questions about relationships ever since putting out my “love room” videos on my You Tube channel! The number one question I get however is about my skin care regimen! not a day goes by that people don’t ask me what I use to care for my skin! I even get people who ask me if I’ve had laser cosmetic treatments done to achieve a flawless complexion! The answer is NO! I’ve never touched my face with fillers or lasers…nor would I!

The truth of the matter is you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on cosmetic treatments! Nor do you need to spend hundreds of dollars on beauty creams that are LOADED with paragons, fragrances and colors! My skin care is as simple as my food! It’s cheap, efficient and leaves me glowing from the inside out!

As a teenager, I had terrible acne. At one point my mother even placed me on acutane! It was a drug with horrible side effects that got rid of acne at a VERY high cost to ones health! I begged her to let me get on it! I can remember my heels on my feet cracking to the point of bleeding because the drug was so incredibly drying to the system!

I’m so happy those days are over! I feel truly blessed to have found juices, raw living foods and true health from he inside out! It really is a blissful way to live!

Here are my top five skin care tips to GLOW!

1) JUICE! You simply cannot glow from the inside out if you are eating crap! The quickest way to clean up your diet is to start by juicing at least once per day! I’ll post my skin glowing elixir below!

2) EAT MORE RAW FOOD! Just like the cover of my first book says “Live food live body, dead food dead body”…Any questions?

3) Use only coconut oil to remove make up and grape seed oil to remove eye make up! These are he two most natural oils on the market today that resemble your skins natural oils!

4) EAT DIRT! YEP! One of the main reasons I created my breakfast formula and evening formula was to give my body ALL the micro nutrients, vitamins and minerals it needs without taking any isolated nutrients! Clay has it all and m clay is the best!

5) Don’t wear make up every day! I see women do this ALL the time and it kills me! Ladies, no need to wear make-up to the gym, the grocery or to take out the trash! LET THY SKIN BREATHE for the love of God! Make-up should be used as a “special occasion” type of thing! 

6) USE ONLY VEGAN, CRUELTY FREE, PARABEN FREE AND FRAGRANCE FREE COSMETICS! Anything else will clog your pores, screw with your hormone levels and leave your skin looking awful! Remember, your skin is the largest organ on your body! What you place on it goes into your blood stream in 15 minutes!

7) DRINK HALF TO ONE GALLON OF WATER PER DAY! I know i’m not the first person to tell you this! It really is that important! Hydration is key!

8) USE COCONUT OIL AS AN ALL OVER BODY MOISTURIZER! Yes, it works! No, its not greasy if you don’t OD on it! It also smells delicious!

9) GET YOUR ZZZZ’S! 7-9 hours per night is a must! Sleeping not only makes us look younger, it also reduces inflammation! So turn that computer off and rest up!

10) SWEAT! Moving your lymphatic system and sweating go hand in hand! This is a must to have glowing skin!

Raw vegan chocolate brownies

Raw vegan chocolate brownies


 These are to die for! They are gluten free, dairy free and take less than 10 minutes to make! This recipe came about once I discovered my beloved expresso brownie at my favorite organic grocery contained canola oil:( Sigh 
I promise you these will be the most decadent moist, divine brownie you will ever eat! They are packed with a unique chocolate espresso flavor! Hey…You ready?! Did I mention they don’t cause cellulite?!
 
Serves: ~ 10-20 people or one VERY hungry girl who is in her pre menstrual phase or pregnant:) Just kidding!
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cups raw walnuts, divided
  • 1/3 Cup chopped walnuts
  • 
2 – 2 1/2 cups Medjool or Deglet Nour dates, pitted
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder 
  • 1-2 TB espresso powder or finely ground ORGANIC coffee (depending on preference)
  • pinch sea salt
  • a pinch of cinnamon 
  • a tiny piece of vanilla bean or 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
 
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. First, sprout your nuts by soaking them over night then draining the soak water in the morning! Then, place 1 cup walnuts in the food processor and process until finely ground.
  2. Add the cocoa powder, espresso powder and sea salt. Pulse to combine and then transfer to bowl and set aside.
  3. PIT YOUR DATES! Then, add the dates to the food processor and process until small bits remain. Remove from bowl and set aside.
  4. Add nut and cocoa mixture back into food processor and while processing, drop small handfuls of the date pieces down into the food processor spout. Process until a dough consistency is achieved, adding more dates if the mixture does not hold together when squeezed in your hand. Fold in the chocolate chips!
  5. Add the brownie mixture to a small cake pan or loaf pan (I like to lightly dust my pan with coconut sugar first to avoid sticking)! Then add remaining 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts. Toss to combine and evenly distribute, and then press down with you hands until it is flat and firm.
  6. Place in freezer or fridge to chill before cutting. Store in an airtight container to keep fresh. Will keep in the fridge for at least 2 1/2 weeks and in the freezer for at least 2 months.

Its that time of year again! The best gift to give yourself!

Ahhh! Its that time of year again! I’m so excited to offer this to you!

When 2014 rolled around I set a goal to help a minimum of fifty clients one on one! I was seeking to help serious people who had a health issue or needed to lose a significant amount of weight. These private clients were not to be part of my retreats. They are people who could not spare the time away from home to attend one of my retreats. 

I’m happy to say I’ve helped forty of those fifty! This is why I’ve chosen to take on ten new private clients during the month of January to get you in the most incredible shape of your lives!

During this time, I’m going to show you one on one how to first cleanse and detoxify your body on a cellular level! Then the focus shifts onto how to keep it clean while removing excess weight and toxicity FOR GOOD! The majority of my clients lose anywhere from ten to twenty pounds during this phase! The beautiful thing is, you are eating the entire time abundantly! This by NO MEANS is a diet! It is a life style change!

The experience…We will begin with a one on one Skype consultation where I listen and asses your current needs, goals and desires. After that you will get a program that I design exclusively for you! We will then be speaking daily on the phone or via Skype for a period of thirty days in order to keep you on track! You will also get exclusive access to my private membership site prior to it being open to the public! 

This will go fast…so if you message me (here on Facebook or at the address below) and I don’t respond, that only means all ten spots have been filled. You are more than welcome to private message me at a later date if that happens, and if you are EXTREMELY interested…I may be able to fit 1 or 2 more of you in.

If you are reading this and know someone that can potentially benefit from this, please SHARE this! They will be thankful and so will I!:)

Lets make 2015 your sexiest, healthiest year ever! With me holding your hand the entire way…you simply cannot fail!
